And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwives , of which the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah:
And he said , When ye do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them upon the stools; if it be a son, then ye shall kill him: but if it be a daughter, then she shall live .
But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive .
And the king of Egypt called for the midwives , and said unto them, Why have ye done this thing, and have saved the men children alive ?
And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are delivered ere the midwives come in unto them.
Therefore God dealt well with the midwives : and the people multiplied , and waxed very mighty .
And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he made them houses.
