10 And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the Children of Israel lift up their Eyes, and behold, the Egyptians marched after them, and they were SORE AFRAID: and the Children of Ifrael CRIED out unto the LORD.

11 And they faid unto Mofes, Because there were no Graves in Egypt, haft thou taken us away to die in the Wildernefs? Wherefore haft thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt?

12 Is not this the Word that we did tell thee in Egypt, faying, Let us alone, that we may ferve the Egyptians? For it had been better for us to ferve the Egyptians, than that we fhould die in the Wilderness.

13 And Mofes faid unto the People, Fear ye not, stand ftill, and fee the Salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you To-day for the Egyptians whom ye have seen Today, ye fhall fee them again no more for ever.


14 The LORD fhall fight for you, and ye fhall hold your Peace.

15 And the LORD faid unto Mofes, Wherefore criest thou unto me? Speak unto the Children of Ifrael, that they go FORWARD.

16 But LIFT THOU up thy ROD, and ftretch out thine Hand over the SEA, and DIVIDE it, and the Children of Ifrael fhall go on DRY GROUND through the midst of the Sea.

17 And I, behold I, will harden the Hearts of the Egyptians, and they fhall follow them, and I will get me Honour upon Pharaoh, and upon all his Hoft, upon his Chariots, and upon his Horsemen.

8 And

18 And the Egyptians fhall know that I AM the LORD, when I have gotten me Honour upon Pharaoh, upon his Chariots, and upon his Horfemen.

19 And the ANGEL of GOD which went before the Camp of Ifrael, removed and went behind them; and the PILLAR of the CLOUD Went from before their Face, and stood behind them.

20 And it came between the Camp of the Egyptians, and the Camp of Ifrael, 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.

21 And Moses STRETCHED out his HAND Over the SEA, and the LORD caufed the Sea to GO BACK by a ftrong Eastwind all that Night, and made the SEA DRY LAND, and the Waters were divided.

22 And the Children of Ifrael went into the MIDST Of the SEA upon the DRY Ground: and the Waters were a Wall unto them on their Right Hand, and on their Left.

23 And the Egyptians purfued, and went in after them, to the midst of the Sea, even all Pharaoh's Horfes, his Chariots, and his Horsemen.

24 And it came to pafs, that in the Morning-watch, the LORD looked unto the Hoft of the Egyptians, through the Pillar of Fire and of the Cloud, and TROUBLED the Hoft of the Egyptians,

25 And took off their Chariot-wheels, that they DRAVE them HEAVILY: fo that the Egyptians faid, Let us FLEE from the Face of Ifrael; for the LORD FIGHTETH for them against the Egyptians.

26 And the LORD faid unto Mofes, STRETCH out thine Hand over the SEA, that the Waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their Chariots, and upon their Horse


27 And Mofes STRETCHED forth his Hand over the SEA, and the SEA RETURNED to his STRENGTH when the Morning appeared, and the Egyptians fled against it: and the LORD overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the Sea.

28 And the Waters returned and covered the Chariots, and the Horsemen, and all the Hoft of Pharaoh that came into the Sea after them: there remained not fo much as one of them.

29 But the Children of Ifrael walked upon dry Land in the midst of the Sea: and the Waters were a Wall unto them on their Right Hand and on their Left.
