First Reading - Ex 1:8-14, 22

8 In the mean time there arose a new king over Egypt, that knew not Joseph:
9 And he said to his people: Behold the people of the children of Israel are numerous and stronger than we.
10 Come, let us wisely oppress them, lest they multiply: and if any war shall rise against us, join with our enemies, and having overcome us, depart out of the land.
11 Therefore he set over them masters of the works, to afflict them with burdens, and they built for Pharao cities of tabernacles, Phithom and Ramesses.
12 But the more they oppressed them, the more they were multiplied, and increased:
13 And the Egyptians hated the children of Israel, and afflicted them and mocked them:
14 And they made their life bitter with hard works in clay, and brick, and with all manner of service, wherewith they were overcharged in the works of the earth.
22 Pharao therefore charged all his people, saying: Whatsoever shall be born of the male sex, ye shall cast into the river: whatsoever of the female, ye shall save alive.
