18And the king called for them and said: What is that you meant to do, that you would save the men children? 19They answered: The Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women: for they themselves are skillful in the office of a midwife; and they are delivered before we come to them. 20Therefore God dealt well with the midwives: and the people multiplied and grew exceedingly strong.

About the Cebuano Language

The Cebuano language, also often colloquially albeit incorrectly referred to by most of its speakers simply as Bisaya (“Visayan”; not to be confused with other Visayan languages), is an Austronesian regional language spoken in the Philippines by about 20 million people, mostly in Central Visayas, eastern Negros Island Region, western parts of Eastern Visayas and most parts of Mindanao, most of whom belong to the Cebuano Visayan ethnic group. It is the most widely spoken of the languages within the so-named Visayan language family and is closely related to other Filipino languages. It is the lingua franca of the Central Visayas, eastern Negros Island Region (especially Negros Oriental), western parts of Eastern Visayas and most parts of Mindanao. The name Cebuano is derived from the island of Cebu, which is the origin of the language.
