1 And these are the names of the sons of Israel that came into Egypt with Jacob; a man and his house they came.

2 Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah;

3 Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin;

4 Dan and Naphtali, Gad and Asher.

5 And it was that all the souls that came·​·out of the thigh of Jacob were seventy souls; and Joseph was in Egypt.

6 And Joseph died, and all his brothers, and all that generation.

7 And the sons of Israel were·​·fruitful, and were productive*, and multiplied, and became· very very ·numerous; and the land was·​·filled with them.

8 And there arose a new king over Egypt, who knew not Joseph.

9 And he said to his people, Behold, the people of the sons of Israel are many and more numerous than we.

10 Come, let us act·​·wisely with them; lest they be·​·multiplied, and it will be that a war will befall us, and they will also add themselves to those who hate us, and fight against us, and go·​·up from the land.

11 And they set over them princes of tributes, in order to afflict them with burdens. And they built cities of storehouses* for Pharaoh, Pithom and Rameses.

12 And as they afflicted them, so they multiplied, and so they broke·​·forth. And they were moved·​·with·​·loathing on·​·account·​·of the sons of Israel.

13 And the Egyptians made the sons of Israel to serve with severity;

14 and they made· their life ·bitter with hard service, in clay, and in bricks, and in all service in the field, with all their service in which they made them serve with severity.

15 And the king of Egypt said to the midwives of the Hebrew women, of whom the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the second Puah;

16 and he said, When you do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them on the stools*; if he be a son, then you shall·​·put· him ·to·​·death; and if it be a daughter, then she shall live.

17 And the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt had spoken to them, and they kept· the boys ·alive.

18 And the king of Egypt called the midwives, and said to them, Wherefore do you do this thing, and keep· the boys ·alive?

19 And the midwives said to Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and have given·​·birth before the midwife comes to them.

20 And God did·​·well to the midwives; and the people was multiplied and became· very ·numerous.

21 And it was, because the midwives feared God, that He made for them houses.

22 And Pharaoh commanded all his people, saying, Every son that is born, you shall cast him out into the river, and every daughter you shall let·​·live.

  

Exploring the Meaning of Exodus 1      

Napsal(a) Emanuel Swedenborg

Arcana Coelestia 6634. In the first chapter, in the internal sense, the subject treated of is the state of the renewed church, when good acts the first part, and is made fruitful by the multiplication of the truths of faith.

Arcana Coelestia 6635. Afterward the manifestation of these truths by falsities and evils in the natural is treated of, and that through this infestation the good would be made still more fruitful by means of truths. Down to the end the chapter continues to treat of this infestation and its increase in the series in which it takes place, and of the consequent implantation and confirmation of truth from good.
