Working in Egypt
At the close of the book of Genesis Joseph dies at 110 years of age in the land of Egypt. His descendants and the other descendents of Jacob continue to live in the land of Egypt in favor with the Pharaoh and all Egyptians. When the book of Exodus opens the descendants of Jacob have multiplied over the years until they are a mighty nation. Now a new King arose who did not know Joseph and who feared the great number of the sons of Israel. He sent the sons of Israel into the land of Goshen into the bondage of slavery. The Egyptians compelled the sons of Israel to work hard and they made their lives bitter.
Pharaoh ordered by Hebrews boys killed at birth.
The king was so afraid of the might of the sons of Israel that he ordered only girl babies of the Hebrews be allowed to live. He ordered that all boy babies be killed. The mothers were very sad.
