9 G2036 And he said G1161 G3588 to G1484 his nation, G1473 G2400 Behold, G3588 the G1085 race G3588 of the G5207 sons G* of Israel G3173 are a great G4128 multitude, G2532 and G2480 they are strong G5228 above G1473 us.
10 G1205 Come G3767 then G2686 we should deal subtly G1473 with them, G3379 lest at any time G4129 they should multiply, G2532 and G2259 whenever G302 G1473 [3to us G4819 2may come to pass G4171 1a war], G4369 [2will add G2532 1these also] G3778 G4314 to G3588 the G5227 opponents, G2532 and G1606.2 waging war against G1473 us G1831 they shall go forth G1537 from G3588 the G1093 land.
11 G2532 And G2186 he set G1473 to them G1988 supervisors G1909 over G3588 the G2041 works, G2443 that G2559 they might afflict G1473 them G1722 in G3588 their G2041 works. G2532 And G3618 they built G4172 [2cities G3793.1 1fortified] G3588 to G* Pharaoh -- G3588 G5037 G* Pithom G2532 and G* Raamses, G2532 and G* On G3739 which G1510.2.3 is G* Heliopolis.
12 G2530 And in so far as G1161 G1473 they humbled them G5013 G5118 by so much, G4183 [2many more G1096 1they became]. G2532 And G2480 they were strong G4970 exceedingly, G4970 exceedingly. G2532 And G948 [3were abhorred G3588 1the G* 2Egyptians] G575 of G3588 the G5207 sons G* of Israel.
13 G2532 And G2616 [3tyrannized G3588 1the G* 2Egyptians] G3588 the G5207 sons G* of Israel G970 by force.
14 G2532 And G2736.1 they grievously afflicted G1473 them G3588 by the G2222 life G1722 in G3588 the G2041 [2works G3588 G4642 1hard] G3588 in the G4081 mortar, G2532 and G3588 in the G4141.1 making of bricks, G2532 and G3956 in all G3588 the G2041 works G3588 G1722 in G3588 the G3977.1 plains, G2596 according to G3956 all G3588 the G2041 works G3739 which G2615 they were reducing them to slavery G1473 G3326 with G970 force.
15 G2532 And G2036 [5said G3588 1the G935 2king G3588 3of the G* 4Egyptians] G3588 to the G3103.1 midwives G3588 of the G* Hebrews, G3588 to a certain G1520 one G1473 of them G3588 with the G3686 name G* Shiphrah, G2532 and G3588 the G3686 name G3588 of the G1208 second G* Puah.
16 G2532 And G2036 he said G1473 to them, G3752 Whenever G3105.1 you act as midwife G3588 to the G* Hebrews, G2532 and G1510.3 they should be G4314 about G3588 G5088 to bear, G1437 if G3303 then G730 it should be a male, G1510.3 G615 you kill G1473 it! G1437 But if G1161 G2338 a female, G4046 preserve G1473 it!
17 G5399 [4feared G1161 1But G3588 2the G3103.1 3midwives] G3588 G2316 God, G2532 and G3756 they did not G4160 do G2530 in so far as G4929 [4ordered G1473 5them G3588 1the G935 2king G* 3of Egypt]. G2532 And G2225 they brought forth alive G3588 the G730 males.
18 G2564 [5called G1161 1And G3588 2the G935 3king G* 4of Egypt] G3588 the G3103.1 midwives, G2532 and G2036 said G1473 to them, G5100 Why G3754 is it that G4160 you did G3588 G4229 this thing, G3778 G2532 and G2225 brought forth alive G3588 the G730 males?
19 G2036 [4said G1161 1And G3588 2the G3103.1 3midwives] G3588 G* to Pharaoh, G3756 Not G5613 as G1135 the women G* of Egypt G3588 are the G* Hebrews, G5088 for they give birth G1063 G4250 before G2228 G1525 [3entered G4314 4to G1473 5them G3588 1the G3103.1 2midwives], G2532 and G5088 they bear.
20 G2095 [3good G1161 1And G4160 2God did] G3588 G2316 G3588 to the G3103.1 midwives. G2532 And G4129 he multiplied G3588 the G2992 people, G2532 and G2480 it became strong G4970 exceedingly.
21 G1894 Since G5399 [3feared G3588 1the G3103.1 2midwives] G3588 G2316 God, G4160 they made G1438 to themselves G3614 families.
22 G4929 [3gave orders G1161 1And G* 2Pharaoh] G3956 to all G3588 G2992 his people, G1473 G3004 saying, G3956 Every G730 male G3739 who G302 ever G5088 should be born G3588 to the G* Hebrews G1519 [2into G3588 3the G4215 4river G4495 1toss], G2532 and G3956 every G2338 female G2225 bring it forth alive! G1473
