1 These are the names of the Israelites who went with Jacob to Egypt, each of them went with his family:
Gen 35:23-26 Gen 46:8-26 1Chr 2:1-2 1Chr 12:23-40 Gen 29:31-21 Gen 35:18 Gen 49:3-27
2 Reuben, Simeon, Levi and Judah,
3 Issachar, Zebulun and Benjamin,
Exod 28:20 Gen 35:23
4 Dan and Naphtali, Gad and Asher.
5 In all, the descendants of Jacob numbered seventy persons. Joseph was in Egypt already.
Deut 10:22 Gen 46:26-27 Exod 1:20 Judg 8:30
6 Then Joseph died, and his brothers, and all that generation.
Gen 50:26 Acts 7:14-16 Gen 50:24
7 But the Israelites were fruitful and prolific; they became so numerous and powerful that eventually the whole land was full of them.
Gen 46:3 Deut 26:5 Gen 12:2 Gen 35:11 Gen 47:27 Deut 10:22 Gen 1:28
8 Then there came to power in Egypt a new king who had never heard of Joseph.
Acts 7:18 Eccl 2:18-19 Eccl 9:15
9 'Look,' he said to his people, 'the Israelites are now more numerous and stronger than we are.
Ps 105:24-25 Jas 3:14-16 Eccl 4:4 Jas 4:5 Num 22:4-5 Prov 14:28 Prov 27:4
10 We must take precautions to stop them from increasing any further, or if war should break out, they might join the ranks of our enemies. They might take arms against us and then escape from the country.'
Acts 7:19 Ps 83:3-4 Ps 105:25 1Cor 3:18-20 Acts 23:12 Jas 3:15-18 Job 5:13
11 Accordingly they put taskmasters over the Israelites to wear them down by forced labour. In this way they built the store-cities of Pithom and Rameses for Pharaoh.
Gen 15:13 Exod 2:11 Exod 3:7 Gen 47:11 Deut 26:6 Ps 81:6 1Kgs 9:19
12 But the harder their lives were made, the more they increased and spread, until people came to fear the Israelites.
Ps 105:24 Rom 8:28 Acts 4:2-4 Exod 1:9 Heb 12:6-11 Acts 5:28-33 John 12:19
13 So the Egyptians gave them no mercy in the demands they made,
14 making their lives miserable with hard labour: with digging clay, making bricks, doing various kinds of field -- work -- all sorts of labour that they imposed on them without mercy.
Acts 7:19 Exod 2:23 Exod 6:9 Num 20:15 Acts 7:34 Isa 58:6 Ps 81:6
15 The king of Egypt then spoke to the Hebrew midwives, one of whom was called Shiphrah, and the other Puah.
16 'When you attend Hebrew women in childbirth,' he said, 'look at the two stones. If it is a boy, kill him; if a girl, let her live.'
Exod 1:22 Matt 21:38 Rev 12:4
17 But the midwives were God-fearing women and did not obey the orders of the king of Egypt, but allowed the boys to live.
Acts 5:29 Exod 1:21 Prov 16:6 Dan 3:16-18 Dan 6:13 Luke 12:5 Matt 10:28
18 So the king of Egypt summoned the midwives and said to them, 'What do you mean by allowing the boys to live?'
2Sam 13:28 Eccl 8:4
19 The midwives said to Pharaoh, 'Hebrew women are not like Egyptian women, they are hardy and give birth before the midwife can get to them.'
2Sam 17:19-20 1Sam 21:2 Josh 2:4-24
20 For this, God was good to the midwives, and the people went on increasing and growing more powerful;
Eccl 8:12 Exod 1:12 Isa 3:10 Prov 11:18 Heb 6:10 Exod 1:7 Luke 1:50
21 and since the midwives feared God, he gave them families of their own.
1Kgs 11:38 1Sam 2:35 1Kgs 2:24 2Sam 7:27-29 Ps 127:1 1Sam 25:28 2Sam 7:11-13
22 Pharaoh then gave all his people this command: 'Throw every new-born boy into the river, but let all the girls live.'
Acts 7:19 Exod 1:16 Exod 7:19-21 Gen 41:1 Ps 105:25 Rev 16:4-6 Prov 1:16
