Bible: Exodus 14:21-31

14:21 Moses stretched out his hand toward the sea, and the Lord drove the sea apart 1  by a strong east wind all that night, and he made the sea into dry land, and the water was divided. 14:22 So the Israelites went through the middle of the sea on dry ground, the water forming a wall 2  for them on their right and on their left.

14:23 The Egyptians chased them and followed them into the middle of the sea – all the horses of Pharaoh, his chariots, and his horsemen. 14:24 In the morning watch 3  the Lord looked down 4  on the Egyptian army 5  through the pillar of fire and cloud, and he threw the Egyptian army 6  into a panic. 7  14:25 He jammed 8  the wheels of their chariots so that they had difficulty driving, 9  and the Egyptians said, “Let’s flee 10  from Israel, for the Lord fights 11  for them against Egypt!

14:26 The Lord said to Moses, “Extend your hand toward the sea, so that the waters may flow 12  back on the Egyptians, on their chariots, and on their horsemen! 14:27 So Moses extended his hand toward the sea, and the sea returned to its normal state 13  when the sun began to rise. 14  Now the Egyptians were fleeing 15  before it, but the Lord overthrew 16  the Egyptians in the middle of the sea. 14:28 The water returned and covered the chariots and the horsemen and all the army of Pharaoh that was coming after the Israelites into the sea 17 not so much as one of them survived! 18  14:29 But the Israelites walked on dry ground in the middle of the sea, the water forming a wall for them on their right and on their left. 14:30 So the Lord saved 19  Israel on that day from the power 20  of the Egyptians, and Israel saw the Egyptians dead 21  on the shore of the sea. 14:31 When Israel saw 22  the great power 23  that the Lord had exercised 24  over the Egyptians, they 25  feared the Lord, and they believed in 26  the Lord and in his servant Moses. 27
