Bible study 64 – Exodus 14Posted: December 6, 2016
Pharaoh pursues the millions of Israelites with his chariot army, and overtakes them by the shore of a body of water (which I will assume is the Gulf of Suez on the maps). Moses parts the water of the sea and leads the millions on foot in between the walls of water, while God makes sure that Pharaoh’s chariot army obediently follow in line after them. Moses makes the water behind them flow over the Egyptians, and Pharaoh and all his army perish. Because of the “great work that the Lord did against the Egyptians”, the Israelites quite reasonably “feared the Lord”.
