In the Book of Exodus, what did the king of Egypt instruct the Hebrew midwifes to do?

“The king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, whose names were Shiphrah and Puah, “When you are helping the Hebrew women during childbirth on the delivery stool, if you see that the baby is a boy, kill him; but if it is a girl, let her live.” Exodus 1:15 (NIV)
