Book of Exodus Chapter 1

EXODUS 1:1 Now these are the names (1) of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt; every man and his household came with Jacob.

EXODUS 1:2 Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah,

EXODUS 1:3 Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin,

EXODUS 1:4 Dan, and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.

EXODUS 1:5 And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already.

EXODUS 1:6 And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and all that generation.

EXODUS 1:7 And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them.

EXODUS 1:8 Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph.

EXODUS 1:9 And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we:

EXODUS 1:10 Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land.

EXODUS 1:11 Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens, And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses.

EXODUS 1:12 But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew, And they were grieved because of the children of Israel.

EXODUS 1:13 And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigour:

EXODUS 1:14 And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in morter, and in brick, and in all manner of service in the field: all their service, wherein they made them serve, was with rigour.

EXODUS 1:15 And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwives, of which the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah:

EXODUS 1:16 And he said, When ye do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them upon the stools; if it be a son, then ye shall kill him: but if it be a daughter, then she shall live.

EXODUS 1:17 But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive.

EXODUS 1:18 And the king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said unto them, Why have ye done this thing, and have saved the men children alive?

EXODUS 1:19 And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are delivered ere the midwives come in unto them.

EXODUS 1:20 Therefore God dealt well with the midwives: and the people multiplied, and waxed very mighty.

EXODUS 1:21 And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he made them houses.

EXODUS 1:22 And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is born ye shall cast into the river, and every daughter ye shall save alive.

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture, It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years, It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations,

The Bible, the Old Testament, is accepted by the three major Western faiths, It is a major work of Western civilization, The Bible documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all, It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land,
