Exodus 1:16-18; Exodus 1:22

16 When you serve as midwife to the Hebrew women and see them on the birthstool, if it is a son, you shall kill him, but if it is a daughter, she shall live. 17 But the midwives ofeared God and did not do as the king of Egypt commanded them, but let the male children live. 18 So the king of Egypt called the midwives and said to them, Why have you done this, and let the male children live?


22 Then Pharaoh commanded all his people, rEvery son that is born to the Hebrews1 you shall cast into sthe Nile, but you shall let every daughter live.
