Sometimes God understands lying?

The king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said to them, “Why have you done this thing, and have saved the boys alive?” The midwives said to Pharaoh, “Because the Hebrew women aren’t like the Egyptian women; for they are vigorous, and give birth before the midwife comes to them.” God dealt well with the midwives, and the people multiplied, and grew very mighty. It happened, because the midwives feared God, that he gave them families.

I’ll file this one under “sometimes God thinks it’s okay to lie or at least is understanding of why you would lie and does not disapprove or make you suffer for it.”  Or should I?
