Puah (פּוּעָה) was a midwife who, along with Shiphrah, saved newborn Israelite sons by refusing to carry out the Pharaoh's order to murder newborn Israelite sons. They feared God and instead told the Pharaoh that Israelite women were strong and capable of giving birth without the assistance of midwives. They claimed that the Israelite gave birth before they arrived. As a result, God blessed Shiphrah and Puah and provided them with large families.
