But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them.
This is an example of Acts 5:2929Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. (Acts 5:29), “We ought to obey God rather than men.” When man’s laws violate God’s laws, then we have no choice! These women chose not to commit murder and God said, “Way to go!” If the Lord Jesus leaves us here much longer, we will have to make tough decisions like that.
