Exodus 1

1
1Now these [are] the names of the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], which came into Mitzrayim [Egypt - The Narrow Place]; every man and his household came with Ya’akov [Heal of God].
2Re’uven [Behold a Son] [Behold a Son], Shim’on [he who hears], Levi (Levite) [Adhesion, Joiner], and Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised],
3Yissakhar [There Is Recompense], Z’vulun [Glorious Dwelling Place], and Binyamin [Son of the Right Hand/Strength],
4Dan [Judge], and Naftali [My Wrestling], Gad [Good Fortune with Troublesome Effort], and Asher [Happy].
5And all the souls that came out of the waist of Ya’akov [Heal of God] were seventy souls: for Yosef [(God) He Shall Add] was in Mitzrayim [Egypt - The Narrow Place] [already].
6And Yosef [(God) He Shall Add] died, and all his brethren, and all that generation.
7And the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them.
8Now there arose up a new king over Mitzrayim [Egypt - The Narrow Place], which knew not Yosef [(God) He Shall Add].
9And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] [are] more and mightier than we:
10Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falls out any war, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and [so] get them up out of the land.
11Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Par’oh [Pharaoh - Great House] treasure cities, Pitom [City of Justice] and Ra’amses [Child of the Sun].
12But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew. And they were grieved because of the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God].
13And the Mitzri made the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] to serve with rigour:
14And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in mortar, and in brick, and in all manner of service in the field: all their service, wherein they made them serve, [was] with rigour.
15And the king of Mitzrayim [Egypt - The Narrow Place] spoke to the ‘Evri’ot [Hebrew] midwives, of which the name of the one [was] Shif’rah [Beautiful], and the name of the other Puah [Splendid]:
16And he said, When you2f do the office of a midwife to the ‘Evri’ot [Hebrew] women, and see [them] upon the stools; if it [be] a son, then you2f shall kill him: but if it [be] a daughter, then she shall live.
17But the midwives feared God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], and did not as the king of Mitzrayim [Egypt - The Narrow Place] commanded them, but saved the men children alive.
18And the king of Mitzrayim [Egypt - The Narrow Place] called for the midwives, and said unto them, Why have you2f done this thing, and have saved the men children alive?
19And the midwives said unto Par’oh [Pharaoh - Great House], Because the ‘Evri’ot [Hebrew] women [are] not as the Mitzri [Egyptian] women; for they [are] lively, and are delivered before the midwives come in unto them.
20Therefore God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] dealt well with the midwives: and the people multiplied, and waxed very mighty.
21And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], that he made them houses.
22And Par’oh [Pharaoh - Great House] charged all his people, saying, Khav’vah [Eve] (to breath, to live) every son that is born you2f shall cast into the river, and every daughter you2f shall save alive.
