NET © Notes

tn Heb “and they [fem. pl.] feared”; the referent (the midwives) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

tn The verb is the Piel preterite of חָיָה (khaya, “to live”). The Piel often indicates a factitive nuance with stative verbs, showing the cause of the action. Here it means “let live, cause to live.” The verb is the exact opposite of Pharaoh’s command for them to kill the boys.
