Miriam (Hebrew: מִרְיָם, Standard Miryam Tiberian Miryām ; meaning either “wished for child,” “bitterness,” “rebellious,” or “lifted up”; or perhaps originally from Egyptian myr "beloved" or mr “love” or the derived ancient Egyptian name Meritamen or “Merit-Amun,” “beloved of Amun”) was the sister of Moses and Aaron, and the daughter of Amram and Jochebed. She appears first in the book of Exodus in the Hebrew Bible.
It was Miriam who, at Jochebed's request, hid Moses (then a baby) by the side of a river to evade the Pharaoh’s order that newborn Hebrew boys be killed. She watched as the Pharaoh’s daughter discovered the infant and decided to adopt him. Miriam then suggested that the princess take on a nurse for the child, and suggested Jochebed; as a result, Moses was raised to be familiar with his background as a Hebrew. (Exodus 2:1-10)
Miriam is called a prophetess, and is traditionally believed to have composed a brief victory song after Pharaoh’s army was drowned in the Red Sea (Exodus 15:20-21).
“Sing to the Lord, for he has Triumphed gloriously; horse and rider he has thrown into the sea.”
