Exodus 14

14:1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
14:2 Speak to the children of Israel, that they turn and encamp
 before Pi-hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, over against
 Baal-zephon: before it shall ye encamp by the sea.
14:3 For Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel, They [are]
 entangled in the land, the wilderness hath shut them in.
14:4 And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, that he shall follow
 them; and I will be honored upon Pharaoh, and upon all his
 host; that the Egyptians may know that I [am] the LORD. And
 they did so.
14:5 And it was told to the king of Egypt that the people fled:
 and the heart of Pharaoh and of his servants was turned against
 the people, and they said, Why have we done this, that we have
 let Israel go from serving us?
14:6 And he made ready his chariot, and took his people with
14:7 And he took six hundred chosen chariots, and all the
 chariots of Egypt, and captains over every one of them.
14:8 And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt,
 and he pursued the children of Israel: and the children of
 Israel went out with a high hand.
14:9 But the Egyptians pursued them (all the horses [and]
 chariots of Pharaoh, and his horsemen, and his army) and
 overtook them encamping by the sea, beside Pi-hahiroth, before
14:10 And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted
 up their eyes, and behold, the Egyptians marched after them;
 and they were greatly afraid; and the children of Israel cried
 to the LORD.
14:11 And they said to Moses, Because [there were] no graves in
 Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? Why
 hast thou dealt thus with us, to conduct us out of Egypt?
14:12 [Is] not this the word that we told thee in Egypt, Saying,
 Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For [it had
 been] better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should
 die in the wilderness.
14:13 And Moses said to the people, Fear ye not, stand still,
 and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will show to you
 to-day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to-day, ye shall
 see them again no more for ever.
14:14 The LORD will fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.
14:15 And the LORD said to Moses, Why criest thou to me? Speak
 to the children of Israel, that they go forward:
14:16 But lift thou thy rod, and stretch out thy hand over the
 sea, and divide it; and the children of Israel shall go on dry
 [ground] through the midst of the sea.
14:17 And I, behold I, will harden the hearts of the Egyptians,
 and they shall follow them: and I will get me honor upon
 Pharaoh, and upon all his host, upon his chariots and upon his
14:18 And the Egyptians shall know that I [am] the LORD, when I
 have gotten me honor upon Pharaoh, upon his chariots, and upon
 his horsemen.
14:19 And the angel of God, who went before the camp of Israel,
 removed, and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went
 from before their face, and stood behind them:
14:20 And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp
 of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness [to them], but it
 gave light by night [to these]: so that the one came not near
 the other all the night.
14:21 And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the
 LORD caused the sea to go [back] by a strong east wind all that
 night, and made the sea dry [land], and the waters were
14:22 And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea
 upon the dry [ground]: and the waters [were] a wall to them on
 their right hand, and on their left.
14:23 And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them to the
 midst of the sea, [even] all Pharaoh's horses, his chariots,
 and his horsemen.
14:24 And it came to pass, that, in the morning-watch, the LORD
 looked to the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire,
 and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians,
14:25 And took off their chariot-wheels, and made them to move
 heavily, so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face
 of Israel; for the LORD fighteth for them against the
14:26 And the LORD said to Moses, Stretch out thy hand over the
 sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon
 their chariots, and upon their horsemen.
14:27 And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the
 sea returned to its strength when the morning appeared; and the
 Egyptians fled against it; and the LORD overthrew the Egyptians
 in the midst of the sea.
14:28 And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the
 horsemen, [and] all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea
 after them; there remained not so much as one of them.
14:29 But the children of Israel walked upon dry [land] in the
 midst of the sea; and the waters [were] a wall to them on their
 right hand, and on their left.
14:30 Thus the LORD saved Israel that day from the hand of the
 Egyptians: and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the
14:31 And Israel saw that great work which the LORD did upon the
 Egyptians: and the people feared the LORD, and believed the
 LORD, and his servant Moses.
