We are coming here to a spot in Egypt where the Israelite's are being persecuted. Pharaoh was worried that Israel as a nation would overpower Egypt so he ordered the midwives to kill all the male babies that were to be born.  However the midwives feared God more than the Egyptians and God rewarded them for obeying Him. 
The next order was to throw all the male babies into the river and as we see in the next chapter that didn't work with Moses mother either. 
Some orders given out by the government in our day and age are still the same kind today.  What choice do we have but to go along with it or not obey.  However with me it must be to obey God and not man. The Bible is loaded with principles like that.  However it would be up to you and me what we are to do.  I choose to obey God rather than man.
