1 H5315 Now these are H3318 the names of H3290 the sons H3409 of H7657 Israel, who H5315 came H3130 into Egypt H4714 (every man and H1004 his household H935 came H3290 with Jacob):
5 H5315 All the souls H3318 who came out H3290 of Jacob's H3409 body H7657 were seventy H5315 souls, H3130 and Joseph H4714 was in Egypt already.
7 H1121 The children H3478 of Israel H6509 were fruitful, H8317 and increased abundantly, H7235 and multiplied, H3966 and grew exceedingly H6105 mighty; H776 and the land H4390 was filled with them.
8 H6965 Now there arose H2319 a new H4428 king H4714 over Egypt, H3045 who didn't know H3130 Joseph.
9 H559 He said H5971 to his people, H5971 "Behold, the people H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel H7227 are more H6099 and mightier than we.
10 H3051 Come, H2449 let us deal wisely H7235 with them, lest they multiply, H4421 and it happen that when any war H7122 breaks out, H1931 they H3254 also join H8130 themselves to our enemies, H3898 and fight H5927 against us, and escape H776 out of the land."
11 H7760 Therefore they set H4522 taskmasters H6031 over them to afflict H5450 them with their burdens. H1129 They built H4543 storage H5892 cities H6547 for Pharaoh: H6619 Pithom H7486 and Raamses.
12 H6031 But the more they afflicted H3651 them, the more H7235 they multiplied H6555 and the more they spread out. H6973 They were grieved H6440 because H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel.
14 H4843 and they made H2416 their lives H4843 bitter H7186 with hard H5656 service, H2563 in mortar H3843 and in brick, H5656 and in all kinds of service H7704 in the field, H5656 all their service, H6531 in which they ruthlessly H5647 made them serve.
15 H4428 The king H4714 of Egypt H559 spoke H5680 to the Hebrew H3205 midwives, H8034 of whom 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 perform the duty of a midwife H5680 to the Hebrew women, H7200 and see H70 them on the birth stool; H1121 if it is a son, H4191 then you shall kill H1323 him; but if it is a daughter, H2425 then she shall live."
17 H3205 But the midwives H3372 feared H430 God, H6213 and didn't H4428 do what the king H4714 of Egypt H1696 commanded H2421 them, but saved H3206 the baby boys H2421 alive.
18 H4428 The king H4714 of Egypt H7121 called H3205 for the midwives, H559 and said H4069 to them, "Why H6213 have you done H1697 this thing, H2421 and have saved H3206 the boys H2421 alive?"
19 H3205 The midwives H559 said H6547 to Pharaoh, H5680 "Because the Hebrew H802 women H4713 aren't like the Egyptian women; H2422 for they are vigorous, H3205 and give birth H2962 before H3205 the midwife H935 comes to them."
20 H430 God H3190 dealt well H3205 with the midwives, H5971 and the people H7235 multiplied, H3966 and grew very H6105 mighty.
21 H3205 It happened, because the midwives H3372 feared H430 God, H6213 that he gave H1004 them families.
