تفسير : (and the wife of pharaoh) asiyah bint muzahim, who was moses' aunt (said: (he will be)) this child will be (a consolation for me and for you) o pharaoh. (kill him not. peradventure he may be of use to us) in our farm, (or we may choose him for a son) or adopt him as a son. (and they perceived not) the children of israel did not know that he was not from them; it is also said that this means: and they did not know that their destruction will be at his hands.
