—Bithiah to Memnet
Bithiah's first husband predecased her; they had no children. While in mourning, she found and adopted the Hebrew infant Moses, believing the child to be a gift from the Nile god. Mement told Bithiah the child was the son of Hebrew Slaves. But Bithiah adopts him and presented him into the Royal Court of Egypt as a foundling supposedly of Egyptian race. The son of the Nile God.
Her slave nurse Memnet promised to keep Moses past a secret, although Bithiah warned her that it would bring her death. Bithiah grew worried more and more each day of her life, because of Moses' real heritage. She feared that one day the truth might be revealed.
By the time Sethi I was aware of Moses being a Hebrew, Bithiah was exiled from Egypt. However she returned after fearing God during the Passover and was welcomed into the house of Amram and Jochabel, and later married Mered the Judahite. She was also present in the Exodus, Parting of the Red Sea, and the Rebellion of Dathan.
