02-1:17 Notwithstanding, the mydwifes feared God, and dyd not as the kyng of Egypt commaunded them, but saued the men chyldren.
02-1:18 And the kyng of Egypt called for the mydwyfes, and sayde vnto them: why haue ye dealt on this maner, and haue saued the men chyldren?
02-1:19 And the mydwyfes aunswered Pharao: that ye Hebrues women are not as the women of Egypt: for they are more liuely women, and are deliuered yer the mydwyfes come at them.
02-1:20 And God dealt well therefore with the mydwyfes: and the people multiplied and waxed very myghtie.
02-1:21 And it came to passe, that because the midwifes feared God, he made them houses.
02-1:22 And Pharao charged all his people, saying: All the men chyldren that are borne, cast into the ryuer, and saue the mayde chyldren alyue.
