Kingdom Family I could only imagine what went through these midwives head when the King of Eygpt told them to kill the male children and leave the female children, they must of debated how are we going to do this what shall we say to him when we reject his request so they said the Hebrew women are not like Egyptian women they are more vigorous and give birth before we can get to them, now with studying this word we know that was not the reason they could not do what he had asked; it was because they feared the Lord (Loved Him) I said to the Lord some looking in at this word would say they lied and you still showed them favor what an example to show how God Loves righteousness! These women did what was righteous before the Lord the fact that they lied to the King did not matter what matters is righteousness caring about what He cares about and hating what He hates God said to me Love Covers A Multitude Of Sins πŸ‘‡πŸ½

Exodus 1:15-21 NASB β€” Then the king of Egypt spoke to the Hebrew midwives, one of whom was named Shiphrah and the other was named Puah; and he said, β€œWhen you are helping the Hebrew women to give birth and see them upon the birthstool, if it is a son, then you shall put him to death; but if it is a daughter, then she shall live.” But the midwives feared God, and did not do as the king of Egypt had commanded them, but let the boys live. So the king of Egypt called for the midwives and said to them, β€œWhy have you done this thing, and let the boys live?” The midwives said to Pharaoh, β€œBecause the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are vigorous and give birth before the midwife can get to them.” So God was good to the midwives, and the people multiplied, and became very mighty. Because the midwives feared God, He established households for them.
