The washerman takes the box with the child back to his wife, who had recently lost a son of her own. The pair decide to bring the boy up as their child; they call him "Darab" because they "had found him a home (kunaam; for daar in the prose source?) out of the flowing water (aab)". [cf Ex. 2:10: "I called his name Moses (moshe) because I drew him out (mshithihu) from the water".] Darab grows up and shows a talent for fighting, so the washerman gets a knight to teach him the arts of war.
