Puah in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE pu'-a, pu'-va: (1) pu'ah: One of the Hebrew midwives whom the king of Egypt commanded to kill all male children of the Hebrews at birth. The midwives, fearing God, refused to obey, pretending that the children of the Hebrew women were usually born before they arrived. Their act is spoken of as being meritorious in the eyes of the Lord, who is said to have rewarded them by making "houses" for them (Ex 1:15-20). In the Midrash, Ex Rabba', Puah is identified with Miriam, and Shiphrah, the other midwife, with her mother Jochebed. According to another tradition Puah was a proselyte. (2) pu'ah, in 1 Ch 7:1; puwwah, in Gen 46:13; Nu 26:23; written also "Pua" the King James Version, and "Puvah" Revised Version: Second son of Issachar, ancestor of the Punites, enumerated in the desert census taken by Moses and Eleazar. (3) pu'ah: Member of the tribe of Issachar, mentioned (Jdg 10:1) as the son of Dodo and the father of Tola, the judge. Ella Davis Isaacs

Puah in Wikipedia Puah (meaning "splendid") is a name given to two persons in the Bible: One of the two midwives who feared God, and helped prevent the genocide of Hebrew male children by the Egyptians, according to Exodus 1:15-21. Her colleague was Shiphrah. In Midr. Tadshe (on Ex. i. 15) it is assumed that Puah, as well as the other midwife, was a proselyte, and was not identical with Miriam. The son of Dodo and a descendant of Issachar. He had a son named Tola, who rose to become a Biblical judge. (Judges 10:1) Rashi: Jochebed, she is called Shifrah. Rashi sees Shifrah as the mother, and Puah as the daughter. Since the Torah reveals rather than conceals, they must be the mother and daughter mentioned elsewhere in the story, namely, Yochebed and Miriam (Gur Aryeh; Sifsei Chachamim). The name Puah is an expression of crying out (Isaiah 42:14). And Hashem did good to the midwives. Shemos (Exodus) 1:20 The verb is the causitive hiphil. He, (Ha Kodesh Baruch Hu) did good to them. Shemos 1:21 He made houses for them. the houses of kehunah, and leviyah, and royalty. Both Kohanim and Levites live in the Beis HaMigdash. Royalty from Miriam Tractate Sotah 11b; Shemos Rabbah 1:17
