Yocheved was the mother of Moses, Aaron and Miriam. To save him from death, Yocheved placed her baby son Moses in a basket and set it adrift on the Nile because the Pharaoh had ordered that all Jewish boys be put to death. Yocheved's daughter Miriam watched from the reeds as Pharaoh's daughter found baby Moses and suggested that the princess find a nurse to care for the child. Yocheved was chosen to be the nurse and got to be with her son for three years. When Moses was older, she brought him back to Pharaoh's daughter and he became her child. Thus she named the boy Moses.
The Bible does not tell us what became of Yocheved, It is presumed she died durning Moses' exile in the desert.
