Israel Oppressed in Egypt

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:1 -

These are the names of the sons of Israel who came to Egypt with Jacob; each came with his family:

Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah;

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:3 -

Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin;

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:4 -

Dan and Naphtali; Gad and Asher.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:5 -

The total number of Jacob’s descendants[fn] was seventy;[fn] Joseph was already in Egypt.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:6 -

Joseph and all his brothers and all that generation eventually died.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:7 -

But the Israelites were fruitful, increased rapidly, multiplied, and became extremely numerous so that the land was filled with them.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:8 -

A new king, who did not know about Joseph, came to power in Egypt.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:9 -

He said to his people, “Look, the Israelite people are more numerous and powerful than we are.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:10 -

“Come, let’s deal shrewdly with them; otherwise they will multiply further, and when war breaks out, they will join our enemies, fight against us, and leave the country.”

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:11 -

So the Egyptians assigned taskmasters over the Israelites to oppress them with forced labor. They built Pithom and Rameses as supply cities for Pharaoh.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:12 -

But the more they oppressed them, the more they multiplied and spread so that the Egyptians came to dread[fn] the Israelites.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:13 -

They worked the Israelites ruthlessly

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:14 -

and made their lives bitter with difficult labor in brick and mortar and in all kinds of fieldwork. They ruthlessly imposed all this work on them.

The king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives ​— ​the first whose name was Shiphrah and the second whose name was Puah ​— ​

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:16 -

“When you help the Hebrew women give birth, observe them as they deliver. If the child is a son, kill him, but if it’s a daughter, she may live.”

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:17 -

The midwives, however, feared God and did not do as the king of Egypt had told them; they let the boys live.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:18 -

So the king of Egypt summoned the midwives and asked them, “Why have you done this and let the boys live? ”

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:19 -

The midwives said to Pharaoh, “The Hebrew women are not like the Egyptian women, for they are vigorous and give birth before the midwife can get to them.”

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:20 -

So God was good to the midwives, and the people multiplied and became very numerous.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:21 -

Since the midwives feared God, he gave them families.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:22 -

Pharaoh then commanded all his people: “You must throw every son born to the Hebrews into the Nile, but let every daughter live.”
