    Was cast out - When he was exposed on the banks of the Nile, Exodus 2:3.

    And nourished him - Adopted him, and treated him as her own son, Exodus 2:10. It is implied in this that he was educated by her. An adopted son in the family of Pharaoh would be favored with all the advantages which the land could furnish for an education.
