1 H428 Now these H8034 are the names H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel, H935 which came H4714 into Egypt; H376 every man H1004 and his household H935 came H3290 with Jacob.
5 H3605 And all H5315 the souls H3318 that came H3409 out of the loins H3290 of Jacob H7657 were seventy H5315 souls: H3130 for Joseph H4714 was in Egypt already.
6 H3130 And Joseph H4191 died, H3605 and all H251 his brothers, H3605 and all H1755 that generation.
7 H1121 And the children H3478 of Israel H6509 were fruitful, H8317 and increased H8317 abundantly, H7235 and multiplied, H3966 and waxed exceeding H6105 mighty; H776 and the land H4390 was filled with them.
8 H6965 Now there arose H2319 up a new H4428 king H5921 over H4714 Egypt, H834 which H3045 knew H3130 not Joseph.
9 H559 And he said H5971 to his people, H2009 Behold, H5971 the people H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel H7227 are more H6099 and mightier than we:
10 H3051 Come H2449 on, let us deal wisely H6435 with them; lest H7235 they multiply, H1961 and it come H3588 to pass, that, when H7122 there falls H4421 out any war, H3254 they join H1571 also H8130 to our enemies, H3898 and fight H5927 against us, and so get H776 them up out of the land.
11 H7760 Therefore they did set H5921 over H8269 them taskmasters H4522 H6031 to afflict H5450 them with their burdens. H1129 And they built H6547 for Pharaoh H4543 treasure H5892 cities, H6619 Pithom H7486 and Raamses.
12 H3651 But the more H6031 they afflicted H3651 them, the more H7235 they multiplied H6555 and grew. H6973 And they were grieved H6440 because H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel.
14 H2416 And they made their lives H4843 bitter H7186 with hard H5656 bondage, H2563 in mortar, H3843 and in brick, H3605 and in all H5656 manner of service H7704 in the field: H3605 all H5656 their service, H834 wherein H5647 they made them serve, H6531 was with rigor.
15 H4428 And the king H4714 of Egypt H559 spoke H5680 to the Hebrew H3205 midwives, H834 of which H8034 the name H259 of the one H8236 was Shiphrah, H8034 and the name H8145 of the other H6326 Puah:
16 H559 And he said, H3205 When you do the office of a midwife H5680 to the Hebrew H7200 women, and see H70 them on the stools; H1121 if it be a son, H4191 then you shall kill H518 him: but if H1323 it be a daughter, H2425 then she shall live.
17 H3205 But the midwives H3372 feared H430 God, H6213 and did H4428 not as the king H4714 of Egypt H1696 commanded H2421 them, but saved H3206 the men children H2421 alive.
18 H4428 And the king H4714 of Egypt H7121 called H3205 for the midwives, H559 and said H4069 to them, Why H6213 have you done H2088 this H1697 thing, H2421 and have saved H3206 the men children H2421 alive?
19 H3205 And the midwives H559 said H6547 to Pharaoh, H3588 Because H5680 the Hebrew H802 women H4713 are not as the Egyptian H802 women; H2422 for they are lively, H3205 and are delivered H2962 ere H3205 the midwives H935 come in to them.
20 H430 Therefore God H3190 dealt well H3205 with the midwives: H5971 and the people H7235 multiplied, H3966 and waxed very H6105 mighty.
21 H1961 And it came H3588 to pass, because H3205 the midwives H3372 feared H430 God, H6213 that he made H1004 them houses.
