The ark of bulrushes in which the infant Moses was laid (Ex. 2:3) is called in the Hebrew teiva, a word similar to the Egyptian teb, meaning "a chest". It was daubed with slime and with pitch. The "bulrushes" of which it was made were paper reed (Cyperus papyrus)a tall reed-like sedge. This marshland plant is commonly found growing along the Nile, and its thick buoyant stems are sometimes used for making boats.
