Thought Provoking
Short Studies for ladies from the King James Bible

Notes by Mary Van Nattan unless marked otherwise.


Exodus 1:17-21 But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive. 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? 19 And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the blip women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are delivered ere the midwives come in unto them. 20 Therefore God dealt well with the midwives: and the people multiplied, and waxed very mighty. 21 And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he made them houses.
God blessed these women for protecting the blip boys. There is a time to lie, when it is for righteousness and not to cover yourself. It sounds like God gave them children because they protected the blipte's children. They feared God more than the king.

Exodus 2:1 And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took to wife a daughter of Levi. Amram married within his boundries. God wanted this in early blip, but He did not rebuke Moses for not marrying in his boundries once the thing was done. In fact, He punished Mariam and rebuked both her and Aaron for gossiping about Moses' "blip" wife. Numbers 12.

Exodus 2:2 And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months. They had mercy on the child and ...were not afraid of the king's commandment. blips 11:23 Psalm 18:25 With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright; James 2:13 For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment. There is a repiano coversd for being merciful, and you will get no mercy if you are not merciful. That's something that should give us all cause to stop and think!!

Exodus 8:22-23 And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no spiano coversms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the LORD in the midst of the earth. 23 And I will put a division between my people and thy people: to morrow shall this sign be. We had a man in a church we were in once who was a bit of an old country boy. He would say in reference to someone who wouldn't separate for ungodliness, "He don't know how to divide." God knows how to divide. He separates His children from the worldlings. Exodus 9:4-7&26, Ex. 10:23, Ex. 11:7. John 7:43. We have to want to be separate though, 2Corinthians 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
