JuliaSmith(i) 1 These the names of the sons of Israel coming into Egypt with Jacob; a man and his house came. 2 Reuben, Simeon, Levi and Judah, 3 Issachar, Zebulun and Benjamin, 4 Dan and Naphtali, Gad and Asher. 5 And these will be all the souls that came out of the thigh of Jacob, seventy souls: and Joseph was in Egypt 6 And Joseph will die, and all his brethren, and all that generation. 7 Anil the sons of Israel were fruitful, and they will multiply abundantly, and they will increase, and will become strong with might exceedingly; and the land will be filled with them. 8 And a new king will arise over Egypt, who will not know Joseph. 9 And he will say to his people, Behold, the people of the sons of Israel, many, being strong above us. 10 Come, we will be wise with them, lest they shall multiply, and it was when war shall happen, and also being added to our armies and fighting against us, and they went up from the land. 11 And they will set over them leaders of the tributes in order to afflict them in their burdens. And they will build cities of stores for Pharaoh, Pithom and Raamses 12 And as they will afflict them, so they will multiply and will increase. And they will feel disgust from the face of the sons of Israel. 13 And the Egyptians will make the sons of Israel serve by oppression. 14 And they will embitter their lives by hard work in clay, and in bricks, and in all work in the field: all their work in which they made them serve by oppression. 15 And the king of Egypt will say to the midwives of the Hebrews, of whom the name of the one Shiprah, and the name of the second, Puah; 16 And he will say, In the delivering the Hebrew women, and seeing upon the stools, if it is a son, ye shall kill him; and if it is a daughter, preserve alive. 17 And the midwives will fear God, and they did not according to what the king of Egypt said to them, and they will preserve alive the boys. 18 And the king of Egypt will call to the midwives, and will say to them, Wherefore did ye this word, and ye will preserve alive the boys? 19 And the midwives will say to Pharaoh, That the Hebrewesses are not as the Egyptian women, for they giving life before the midwives shall come in to them, and they will bring forth. 20 And God will do well to the midwives, and the people will multiply and be greatly strong. 21 And it will be because the midwives will fear God, and he will make houses for them. 22 And Pharaoh will command to all the people, saying, Every son being brought forth ye shall cast into the river, and every daughter ye shall preserve alive.
