Exodus 14
New Living Translation
14Then the LORD gave these instructions to Moses.H3068H1696H4872H559 2"Order the Israelites to turn back and camp by Pi-hahiroth between Migdol and the sea. Camp there along the shore, across from Baal-zephon.H1696H1121H3478H7725H2583H6440H6367H4024H3220H6440H1189H5226H2583H3220 3Then Pharaoh will think, 'The Israelites are confused. They are trapped in the wilderness!'H6547H559H1121H3478H943H776H4057H5462 4And once again I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and he will chase after you. I have planned this in order to display my glory through Pharaoh and his whole army. After this the Egyptians will know that I am the LORD!" So the Israelites camped there as they were told.H2388H6547H3820H7291H310H3513H6547H2428H4714H3045H3068H6213

The Egyptians Pursue Israel

5When word reached the king of Egypt that the Israelites had fled, Pharaoh and his officials changed their minds. "What have we done, letting all those Israelite slaves get away?" they asked.H5046H4428H4714H5971H1272H3824H6547H5650H2015H5971H559H6213H3478H7971H5647 6So Pharaoh harnessed his chariot and called up his troops.H631H7393H3947H5971 7He took with him 600 of Egypt's best chariots, along with the rest of the chariots of Egypt, each with its commander.H3947H8337H3967H977H7393H7393H4714H7991 8The LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, so he chased after the people of Israel, who had left with fists raised in defiance.H3068H2388H3820H6547H4428H4714H7291H310H1121H3478H1121H3478H3318H7311H3027 9The Egyptians chased after them with all the forces in Pharaoh's army—all his horses and chariots, his charioteers, and his troops. The Egyptians caught up with the people of Israel as they were camped beside the shore near Pi-hahiroth, across from Baal-zephon.H4714H7291H310H5483H7393H6547H6571H2428H5381H2583H3220H6367H6440H1189 10As Pharaoh approached, the people of Israel looked up and panicked when they saw the Egyptians overtaking them. They cried out to the LORD,H6547H7126H1121H3478H5375H5869H4714H5265H310H3966H3372H1121H3478H6817H3068 11and they said to Moses, "Why did you bring us out here to die in the wilderness? Weren't there enough graves for us in Egypt? What have you done to us? Why did you make us leave Egypt?H559H4872H6913H4714H3947H4191H4057H2063H6213H3318H4714 12Didn't we tell you this would happen while we were still in Egypt? We said, 'Leave us alone! Let us be slaves to the Egyptians. It's better to be a slave in Egypt than a corpse in the wilderness!'"H1697H1696H4714H559H2308H5647H4714H2896H5647H4714H4191H4057 13But Moses told the people, "Don't be afraid. Just stand still and watch the LORD rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again.H4872H559H5971H3372H3320H7200H3444H3068H6213H3117H4714H7200H3117H7200H3254H5704H5769 14The LORD himself will fight for you. Just stay calm."H3068H3898H2790

Escape through the Red Sea

15Then the LORD said to Moses, "Why are you crying out to me? Tell the people to get moving!H3068H559H4872H6817H1696H1121H3478H5265 16Pick up your staff and raise your hand over the sea. Divide the water so the Israelites can walk through the middle of the sea on dry ground.H7311H4294H5186H3027H3220H1234H1121H3478H935H3004H8432H3220 17And I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they will charge in after the Israelites. My great glory will be displayed through Pharaoh and his troops, his chariots, and his charioteers.H2388H3820H4714H935H310H3513H6547H2428H7393H6571 18When my glory is displayed through them, all Egypt will see my glory and know that I am the LORD!"H4714H3045H3068H3513H6547H7393H6571 19Then the angel of God, who had been leading the people of Israel, moved to the rear of the camp. The pillar of cloud also moved from the front and stood behind them.H4397H430H1980H6440H4264H3478H5265H3212H310H5982H6051H5265H6440H5975H310 20The cloud settled between the Egyptian and Israelite camps. As darkness fell, the cloud turned to fire, lighting up the night. But the Egyptians and Israelites did not approach each other all night.H935H4264H4714H4264H3478H6051H2822H215H3915H7126H2088H3915 21Then Moses raised his hand over the sea, and the LORD opened up a path through the water with a strong east wind. The wind blew all that night, turning the seabed into dry land.H4872H5186H3027H3220H3068H3220H3212H5794H6921H7307H3915H7760H3220H2724H4325H1234 22So the people of Israel walked through the middle of the sea on dry ground, with walls of water on each side!H1121H3478H935H8432H3220H3004H4325H2346H3225H8040 23Then the Egyptians—all of Pharaoh's horses, chariots, and charioteers—chased them into the middle of the sea.H4714H7291H935H310H8432H3220H6547H5483H7393H6571 24But just before dawn the LORD looked down on the Egyptian army from the pillar of fire and cloud, and he threw their forces into total confusion.H1242H821H3068H8259H4264H4714H5982H784H6051H2000H4264H4714 25He twisted their chariot wheels, making their chariots difficult to drive. "Let's get out of here—away from these Israelites!" the Egyptians shouted. "The LORD is fighting for them against Egypt!"H5493H4818H212H5090H3517H4714H559H5127H6440H3478H3068H3898H4714 26When all the Israelites had reached the other side, the LORD said to Moses, "Raise your hand over the sea again. Then the waters will rush back and cover the Egyptians and their chariots and charioteers."H3068H559H4872H5186H3027H3220H4325H7725H4714H7393H6571 27So as the sun began to rise, Moses raised his hand over the sea, and the water rushed back into its usual place. The Egyptians tried to escape, but the LORD swept them into the sea.H4872H5186H3027H3220H3220H7725H386H1242H6437H4714H5127H7125H3068H5287H4714H8432H3220 28Then the waters returned and covered all the chariots and charioteers—the entire army of Pharaoh. Of all the Egyptians who had chased the Israelites into the sea, not a single one survived.H4325H7725H3680H7393H6571H2428H6547H935H3220H310H7604H5704H259 29But the people of Israel had walked through the middle of the sea on dry ground, as the water stood up like a wall on both sides.H1121H3478H1980H3004H8432H3220H4325H2346H3225H8040 30That is how the LORD rescued Israel from the hand of the Egyptians that day. And the Israelites saw the bodies of the Egyptians washed up on the seashore.H3068H3467H3478H3117H3027H4714H3478H7200H4714H4191H3220H8193 31When the people of Israel saw the mighty power that the LORD had unleashed against the Egyptians, they were filled with awe before him. They put their faith in the LORD and in his servant Moses.H3478H7200H1419H3027H3068H6213H4714H5971H3372H3068H539H3068H5650H4872
