1 H8034 Now these are the names H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel H935 , which came [H8802] H4714 into Egypt H376 ; every man H1004 and his household H935 came [H8804] H3290 with Jacob.
5 H5315 And all the souls H3318 that came out [H8802] H3409 of the loins H3290 of Jacob H7657 were seventy H5315 souls H3130 : for Joseph H4714 was in Egypt already .
7 H1121 And the children H3478 of Israel H6509 were fruitful [H8804] H8317 , and increased abundantly [H8799] H7235 , and multiplied [H8799] H3966 , and waxed exceeding H3966 H6105 mighty [H8799] H776 ; and the land H4390 was filled [H8735] with them.
8 H6965 Now there arose up [H8799] H2319 a new H4428 king H4714 over Egypt H3045 , which knew [H8804] H3130 not Joseph.
9 H559 And he said [H8799] H5971 unto his people H5971 , Behold, the people H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel H7227 are more H6099 and mightier than we:
10 H3051 Come on [H8798] H2449 , let us deal wisely [H8691] H7235 with them; lest they multiply [H8799] H7122 , and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out [H8799] H4421 any war H1931 , they H3254 join [H8738] H8130 also unto our enemies [H8802] H3898 , and fight [H8738] H5927 against us, and so get them up [H8804] H776 out of the land.
11 H7760 Therefore they did set [H8799] H4522 over them taskmasters H8269 H6031 to afflict [H8763] H5450 them with their burdens H1129 . And they built [H8799] H6547 for Pharaoh H4543 treasure H5892 cities H6619 , Pithom H7486 and Raamses.
12 H6031 But the more they afflicted [H8762] H3651 them, the more H7235 they multiplied [H8799] H6555 and grew [H8799] H6973 . And they were grieved [H8799] H6440 because H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel.
13 H4714 And the Egyptians H5647 made H1121 the children H3478 of Israel H5647 to serve [H8686] H6531 with rigour:
14 H4843 And they made H2416 their lives H4843 bitter [H8762] H7186 with hard H5656 bondage H2563 , in morter H3843 , and in brick H5656 , and in all manner of service H7704 in the field H5656 : all their service H5647 , wherein they made them serve [H8804] H6531 , was with rigour.
15 H4428 And the king H4714 of Egypt H559 spake [H8799] H5680 to the Hebrew H3205 midwives [H8764] H8034 , of which the name H259 of the one H8236 was Shiphrah H8034 , and the name H8145 of the other H6326 Puah:
16 H559 And he said [H8799] H3205 , When ye do the office of a midwife [H8763] H5680 to the Hebrew women H7200 , and see [H8804] H70 them upon the stools H1121 ; if it be a son H4191 , then ye shall kill [H8689] H1323 him: but if it be a daughter H2425 , then she shall live [H8804] .
17 H3205 But the midwives [H8764] H3372 feared [H8799] H430 God H6213 , and did [H8804] H4428 not as the king H4714 of Egypt H1696 commanded [H8765] H2421 them, but saved H3206 the men children H2421 alive [H8762] .
18 H4428 And the king H4714 of Egypt H7121 called [H8799] H3205 for the midwives [H8764] H559 , and said [H8799] H4069 unto them, Why H6213 have ye done [H8804] H1697 this thing H2421 , and have saved H3206 the men children H2421 alive [H8762] ?
19 H3205 And the midwives [H8764] H559 said [H8799] H6547 unto Pharaoh H5680 , Because the Hebrew H802 women H4713 are not as the Egyptian women H2422 ; for they are lively H3205 , and are delivered [H8804] H2962 ere H3205 the midwives [H8764] H935 come in [H8799] unto them.
20 H430 Therefore God H3190 dealt well [H8686] H3205 with the midwives [H8764] H5971 : and the people H7235 multiplied [H8799] H3966 , and waxed very H6105 mighty [H8799] .
21 H3205 And it came to pass, because the midwives [H8764] H3372 feared [H8804] H430 God H6213 , that he made [H8799] H1004 them houses.
