Hebrews 11:23-26

By faith Moses, after his birth,
was hidden for three months by his parents,
because they saw he was a beautiful and divinely favored child;
and they were not afraid of the king’s (Pharaoh’s) decree.
By faith Moses, when he had grown up,
refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter,
because he preferred to endure the hardship of the people of God
rather than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin.
He considered the reproach of the Christ
[that is, the rebuke he would suffer for his faithful obedience to God]
to be greater wealth than all the treasures of Egypt;
for he looked ahead to the reward [promised by God].
