122-123 : The Israelites Pass Through Safely

122-123 : The Israelites Pass Through Safely


And God said to Moses:"Why do you cry to me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward.
 But you must lift up your rod and stretch out your hand over the sea, and divide it.
And the children of Israel shall go on dry land through the middle of the sea.
"And you shall see that I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall follow you.
 Then I will show my power over Pharaoh and over all his armies, his chariots and his horsemen.
 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord, when I have shown my power."

Th€en the angel of God which went before the camp of Israel moved and went behind them.
 The pillar of cloud moved from in front of them and rose up behind them.
It came between the camp of Israel and the camp of the Egyptians,
 but it gave light by night to Israel,
 so that the Egyptians did not come near Israel all that night.

Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea,
 and the Lord caused the sea to go back by making a strong east wind blow all that night.
 It made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.

The children of Israel walked into the middle of the sea upon the dry ground,
 and the waters were a wall on their right hand and on their left.

The Egyptians pursued them and went into the middle of the sea after them,
 all Pharaoh's horses, his chariots and his horsemen.

When morning came,
 the Lord looked down on the army of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and the cloud,
and troubled the forces of the Egyptians.
He made the wheels fall off their chariots and made them drive heavily, so that the Egyptians said,
"I€t us flee from the children of Israel, for the Lord fights for them against the Egyptians."
