1:1 Now these [are] the names [H8034] of the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] , which came [H935] into Egypt [H4714] ; every man [H376] and his household [H1004] came [H935] with Jacob [H3290] .
1:2 Reuben [H7205] , Simeon [H8095] , Levi [H3878] , and Judah [H3063] ,
1:3 Issachar [H3485] , Zebulun [H2074] , and Benjamin [H1144] ,
1:4 Dan [H1835] , and Naphtali [H5321] , Gad [H1410] , and Asher [H836] .
1:5 And all the souls [H5315] that came out [H3318] of the loins [H3409] of Jacob [H3290] were seventy [H7657] souls [H5315] : for Joseph [H3130] was in Egypt [H4714] [already].(loins: Heb. thigh)
1:6 And Joseph [H3130] died [H4191] , and all his brethren [H251] , and all that generation [H1755] .
1:7 And the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] were fruitful [H6509] , and increased abundantly [H8317] , and multiplied [H7235] , and waxed exceeding [H3966] [H3966] mighty [H6105] ; and the land [H776] was filled [H4390] with them.
1:8 Now there arose up [H6965] a new [H2319] king [H4428] over Egypt [H4714] , which knew [H3045] not Joseph [H3130] .
1:9 And he said [H559] unto his people [H5971] , Behold, the people [H5971] of the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] [are] more [H7227] and mightier [H6099] than we:
1:10 Come on [H3051] , let us deal wisely [H2449] with them; lest they multiply [H7235] , and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out [H7122] any war [H4421] , they [H1931] join [H3254] also unto our enemies [H8130] , and fight [H3898] against us, and [so] get them up [H5927] out of the land [H776] .
1:11 Therefore they did set [H7760] over them taskmasters [H4522] [H8269] to afflict [H6031] them with their burdens [H5450] . And they built [H1129] for Pharaoh [H6547] treasure [H4543] cities [H5892] , Pithom [H6619] and Raamses [H7486] .
1:12 But the more they afflicted [H6031] them, the more [H3651] they multiplied [H7235] and grew [H6555] . And they were grieved [H6973] because [H6440] of the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] .(But: Heb. And as they afflicted them, so they multiplied, etc)
1:13 And the Egyptians [H4714] made [H5647] the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] to serve [H5647] with rigour [H6531] :
1:14 And they made [H4843] their lives [H2416] bitter [H4843] with hard [H7186] bondage [H5656] , in morter [H2563] , and in brick [H3843] , and in all manner of service [H5656] in the field [H7704] : all their service [H5656] , wherein they made them serve [H5647] , [was] with rigour [H6531] .
1:15 And the king [H4428] of Egypt [H4714] spake [H559] to the Hebrew [H5680] midwives [H3205] , of which the name [H8034] of the one [H259] [was] Shiphrah [H8236] , and the name [H8034] of the other [H8145] Puah [H6326] :
1:16 And he said [H559] , When ye do the office of a midwife [H3205] to the Hebrew women [H5680] , and see [H7200] [them] upon the stools [H70] ; if it [be] a son [H1121] , then ye shall kill [H4191] him: but if it [be] a daughter [H1323] , then she shall live [H2425] .
1:17 But the midwives [H3205] feared [H3372] God [H430] , and did [H6213] not as the king [H4428] of Egypt [H4714] commanded [H1696] them, but saved [H2421] the men children [H3206] alive [H2421] .
1:18 And the king [H4428] of Egypt [H4714] called [H7121] for the midwives [H3205] , and said [H559] unto them, Why [H4069] have ye done [H6213] this thing [H1697] , and have saved [H2421] the men children [H3206] alive [H2421] ?
1:19 And the midwives [H3205] said [H559] unto Pharaoh [H6547] , Because the Hebrew [H5680] women [H802] [are] not as the Egyptian women [H4713] ; for they [are] lively [H2422] , and are delivered [H3205] ere [H2962] the midwives [H3205] come in [H935] unto them.
1:20 Therefore God [H430] dealt well [H3190] with the midwives [H3205] : and the people [H5971] multiplied [H7235] , and waxed very [H3966] mighty [H6105] .
1:21 And it came to pass, because the midwives [H3205] feared [H3372] God [H430] , that he made [H6213] them houses [H1004] .
1:22 And Pharaoh [H6547] charged [H6680] all his people [H5971] , saying [H559] , Every son [H1121] that is born [H3209] ye shall cast [H7993] into the river [H2975] , and every daughter [H1323] ye shall save alive [H2421] .
