Exodus 1
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And these are the names of the sons of Israel who entered Egypt with Yaquuv; the man and his household entered: 2Rubil and Shemon and Levi and Yehuda. 3And Issakar and Zebulon and Benyamin. 4And Dan and Naphtali and Gad and Ashir. 5And all the souls that came out from the loins of Yaquuv were seventy souls, and Yoseph was in Egypt. 6And Yoseph died and all his brothers and all that generation. 7And the sons of Israel increased and they had children, and they multiplied and they grew very strong, and the land was filled by them.

8And a new King arose over Egypt that had not known Yoseph. 9And he said to his people, “Behold, the people of the sons of Israel are many and are mightier than we: 10Grant that we will be wise concerning them before they are multiplied, lest we come to war and they are added also unto our haters, and they will fight with us and they will drive us out from the land.” 11And they placed evil Rulers over them that would oppress them in their oppression and they were building cities, places of storage for Pharaoh, Pithom and Raamsis. 12And as much as those oppressed them, so they were multiplying, and thus they were growing strong, and it was distressing them before the children of Israel. 13And the Egyptians were oppressing the children of Israel with hardship: 14And they were making their lives bitter with hard labor in clay and in bricks and in every work of the field, all the servitude that they were serving for them with hardship.

15And the King of Egypt said to the Hebrew Midwives, the name of one of whom was Pua, and the name of another, Shupra: 16And he said to them, “When you happen to deliver for a Hebrew woman, be looking, when kneeling; if it is a male, you kill him, and if it is a female, you save her.” 17And the midwives feared God and did not do as the King of Egypt told them, and they were saving the boys. 18And the King of Egypt called the Midwives and he said to them, “Why are you making this response and are saving the boys?” 19And the Midwives said to Pharaoh, “The Hebrews are not like the Egyptian women, because they are Midwives, and when the Midwives are not near them, they give birth.” 20And God blessed the Midwives because they made this response, and he multiplied the people and they grew very strong. 21And it was that as the midwives were in awe of God, he made them households. 22And Pharaoh commanded all the people and said, “Every son who will be born, you will throw him into the river, and every daughter you will save.”
