Pharoah ordered the death of all baby boys because the population of Hebrews was getting so large. The Egyptians became concerned that they would be over taken by the Hebrews. However, according to The Bible, it didn't work because 2 midwives didn't follow through with the order they received from Pharoah to kill the new born boys. A wonderful case of civil disobedience!!
