This poetic narrative of Miriam portrays an overview of her story from where she strategically helps to save her baby brother, Moses, from Pharoah's death decree to her regal homegoing celebration. Prophetess Miriam shows herself to be a divinely guided, intelligent, brave and anointed woman of God as she grows and develops on her life path.

The Story of Miriam


Baby Moses lay in a basket along the river; his sister Miriam stood by watching him for awhile.

This had occurred because Pharaoh ordered all his people to throw all newborn Hebrew boys into the Nile.

She cleverly set a plan in motion using Pharaoh’s daughter, who had seen the basket hidden among the reeds.

Miriam asked if she should get one of the Hebrew nurses, then she got her mother to meet her brother’s nursing needs.

After the Israelites were delivered from out of bondage and escaped
the Egyptians by passing safely through the Red Sea,

Miriam, the prophetess, took a timbrel and led all the women
in singing and dancing for the Lord had triumphed gloriously!

Then Miriam, in her humanness, talked against Moses,
publically expressing that God spoke to her as well as him.

God heard it and confronted her with His anger stirring,
then struck her with leprosy, a disease that deforms the skin.

God healed Miriam because Aaron and Moses pleaded,
but she was banished from the camp for seven days.
After confinement, she was restored back to the people,
who waited for her return before they moved on their way.

Miriam, the daughter of Amram and Jochebed,
was a servant anointed to do many great things.
A woman, a sister, a leader, and a prophetess
especially chosen by God, our Father, Lord and King.

Miriam was a blessing to her people;
unto death, she was greatly honored and loved.
Her glorious, regal home-going celebration
lifted her song of praise to the heavenly skies above.

(Exodus 2:1-10; 15:20-21; Numbers 12)


Be blessed,
