Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:1 - Now these are the names of the sons of Israel who came to Egypt with Jacob; they came each one [fn]with his household:

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:2 - 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 - All the [fn]persons who came from the loins of Jacob were seventy [fn]in number, but Joseph was already in Egypt.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:6 - Joseph died, and all his brothers and all that generation.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:7 - But the sons of Israel were fruitful and [fn]increased greatly, and multiplied, and became exceedingly [fn]mighty, so that the land was filled with them.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:8 - Now a new king arose over Egypt, who did not know Joseph.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:9 - He said to his people, “Behold, the people of the sons of Israel are [fn]more and mightier than we.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:10 - “Come, let us deal wisely with them, or else they will multiply and [fn]in the event of war, they will also join themselves to those who hate us, and fight against us and [fn]depart from the land.”

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:11 - So they appointed taskmasters over them to afflict them with [fn]hard labor. And they built for Pharaoh storage cities, Pithom and Raamses.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:12 - But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and the more they [fn]spread out, so that they were in dread of the sons of Israel.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:13 - The Egyptians compelled the sons of Israel to labor rigorously;

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:14 - and they made their lives bitter with hard labor in mortar and bricks and at all kinds of labor in the field, all their labors which they rigorously [fn]imposed on them.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:15 - Then the king of Egypt spoke to the Hebrew midwives, one of whom [fn]was named Shiphrah and the other [fn]was named Puah;

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:16 - and he said, “When you are helping the Hebrew women to give birth and see them upon the birthstool, if it is a son, then you shall put him to death; but if it is a daughter, then she shall live.”

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:17 - But the midwives [fn]feared God, and did not do as the king of Egypt had [fn]commanded them, but let the boys live.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:18 - So the king of Egypt called for the midwives and said to them, “Why have you done this thing, and let the boys live?”

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:19 - The midwives said to Pharaoh, “Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are vigorous and give birth before the midwife [fn]can get to them.”

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:20 - So God was good to the midwives, and the people multiplied, and became very [fn]mighty.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:21 - Because the midwives [fn]feared God, He [fn]established [fn]households for them.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 1:22 - Then Pharaoh commanded all his people, saying, “Every son who is born [fn]you are to cast into the Nile, and every daughter you are to keep alive.”
