Pharaoh (Moses's time)

Pharaoh (Moses's time)

  1. References

A few generations after Jacob and Joseph, the Israelites were too numerous for the Egyptians. So the Pharaoh (who did not know anything about Jacob or Joseph) put the Israelites to work as slaves. He ordered the Hebrew midwives Shiphrah and Puah to kill all new-born boys.

The Pharaoh's daughter found the three-month old Moses in the river. They raised him as an Egyptian. After Moses killed one of the Egyptians, the Pharaoh became angry with him and tried to kill him. Moses then fled to Midian.

This Pharaoh died before Moses came back to Egypt. The pharaoh who was alive when Moses came back is Pharaoh (Exodus).
