Now theseH428 are the namesH8034 of the childrenH1121 of Israel,H3478 which cameH935 into Egypt;H4714 every manH376 and his householdH1004 cameH935 with Jacob.H3290
Reuben,H7205 Simeon,H8095 Levi,H3878 and Judah,H3063
Issachar,H3485 Zebulun,H2074 and Benjamin,H1144
Dan,H1835 and Naphtali,H5321 Gad,H1410 and Asher.H836
And allH3605 the soulsH5315 that cameH3318 out of the loinsH3409 of JacobH3290 were seventyH7657 souls:H5315 for JosephH3130 was in EgyptH4714 already.
And JosephH3130 died,H4191 and allH3605 his brothers,H251 and allH3605 that generation.H1755
And the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 were fruitful,H6509 and increasedH8317 abundantly,H8317 and multiplied,H7235 and waxed exceedingH3966 mighty;H6105 and the landH776 was filledH4390 with them.
Now there aroseH6965 up a newH2319 kingH4428 overH5921 Egypt,H4714 whichH834 knewH3045 not Joseph.H3130
And he saidH559 to his people,H5971 Behold,H2009 the peopleH5971 of the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 are moreH7227 and mightierH6099 than we:
ComeH3051 on, let us deal wiselyH2449 with them; lestH6435 they multiply,H7235 and it comeH1961 to pass, that, whenH3588 there fallsH7122 out any war,H4421 they joinH3254 alsoH1571 to our enemies,H8130 and fightH3898 against us, and so getH5927 them up out of the land.H776
Therefore they did setH7760 overH5921 them taskmastersH8269 H4522 to afflictH6031 them with their burdens.H5450 And they builtH1129 for PharaohH6547 treasureH4543 cities,H5892 PithomH6619 and Raamses.H7486
But the moreH3651 they afflictedH6031 them, the moreH3651 they multipliedH7235 and grew.H6555 And they were grievedH6973 becauseH6440 of the childrenH1121 of Israel.H3478
And the EgyptiansH4714 made the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 to serveH5647 with rigor:H6531
And they made their livesH2416 bitterH4843 with hardH7186 bondage,H5656 in mortar,H2563 and in brick,H3843 and in allH3605 manner of serviceH5656 in the field:H7704 allH3605 their service,H5656 whereinH834 they made them serve,H5647 was with rigor.H6531
And the kingH4428 of EgyptH4714 spokeH559 to the HebrewH5680 midwives,H3205 of whichH834 the nameH8034 of the oneH259 was Shiphrah,H8236 and the nameH8034 of the otherH8145 Puah:H6326
And he said,H559 When you do the office of a midwifeH3205 to the HebrewH5680 women, and seeH7200 them on the stools;H70 if it be a son,H1121 then you shall killH4191 him: but ifH518 it be a daughter,H1323 then she shall live.H2425
But the midwivesH3205 fearedH3372 God,H430 and didH6213 not as the kingH4428 of EgyptH4714 commandedH1696 them, but savedH2421 the men childrenH3206 alive.H2421
And the kingH4428 of EgyptH4714 calledH7121 for the midwives,H3205 and saidH559 to them, WhyH4069 have you doneH6213 thisH2088 thing,H1697 and have savedH2421 the men childrenH3206 alive?H2421
And the midwivesH3205 saidH559 to Pharaoh,H6547 BecauseH3588 the HebrewH5680 womenH802 are not as the EgyptianH4713 women;H802 for they are lively,H2422 and are deliveredH3205 ereH2962 the midwivesH3205 comeH935 in to them.
Therefore GodH430 dealt wellH3190 with the midwives:H3205 and the peopleH5971 multiplied,H7235 and waxed veryH3966 mighty.H6105
And it cameH1961 to pass, becauseH3588 the midwivesH3205 fearedH3372 God,H430 that he madeH6213 them houses.H1004
And PharaohH6547 chargedH6680 allH3605 his people,H5971 saying,H559 EveryH3605 sonH1121 that is bornH3209 you shall castH7993 into the river,H2975 and everyH3605 daughterH1323 you shall saveH2421 alive.H2421
