The Exodus page 8
When the Hebrews looked up and saw the Egyptians, they were terrified, and they cried out to the Lord.
Then Moses said to the people, “Do not fear! Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will show to you today: for the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you shall see again no more. The Lord will fight for you.”
The Lord said to Moses, “Lift up your staff, and stretch out your hand over the sea, and divide it: and the Children of Israel shall walk on dry ground through the middle of the sea.”
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Lift up your staff, and stretch out your hand over the sea, and divide it: and the Children of Israel shall walk on dry ground through the middle of the sea.”
And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused a strong east wind to drive the sea back, and the waters were divided. And Israel went into the middle of the sea on dry groundthe waters forming a wall beside them on both sides.
Then all of Pharaoh’s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen pursued the Hebrews, following after them across the dry ground. But the Lord confused the Egyptian army, and He caused the wheels on their chariots to fall off so that the horses couldn’t pull them.
The Egyptians panicked. “Let’s run from Israel because the Lord fights for them.”
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand over the sea.” And when Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, the sea returned to its place. The Egyptians tried to escape from the water, but the Lord defeated them in the middle of the sea.
The water covered Pharaoh’s army, his chariots and his horses. All of them were destroyed. But the children of Israel had walked across on dry land right through the middle of the sea. When Israel saw this great miracle which the Lord did against the Egyptians, the people were awed, and they respected God and believed in the Lord and his servant Moses.
