DELIVERANCE See and experience the mighty salvation of God. Exodus 14
8The Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt. He pursued the children of Israel; 9all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, his horsemen and his army, and he overtook them camping by the sea. 10When Pharaoh drew near, the children of Israel lifted their eyes, and behold, the Egyptians marched after them. So they were very afraid, and cried out to the Lord. 11Then they said to Moses, "Because there were no graves in Egypt, have you taken us away to die in the wilderness? Is this not the word we told you in Egypt, saying, 'Let us alone that we may serve the Egyptians'? For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than that we should die in the wilderness." 13Moses said to the people, "Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. The Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. 14The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace." 15The Lord said to Moses, "Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward. 16Lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it. Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea. 17 I indeed will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall follow them. So I will gain honor over Pharaoh and all his army and horsemen. 18Then the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord. 19The Angel of God, who went before the camp of Israel, moved behind them; and the pillar of cloud went from before them and stood behind them. 20 It came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel. It was a cloud and darkness to the one, and it gave light by night to the other, so that the one did not come near the other all night. 21Then Moses stretched 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 into dry land, and the waters were divided. 22So the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea on the dry ground, and the waters were a wall to them on their right hand and on their left. 23The Egyptians pursued and went after them into the midst of the sea. 26Then the Lord said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand over the sea, that the waters may come back upon the Egyptians." 27So the Lord overthrew the Egyptians. 29But the children of Israel had walked on dry land in the midst of the sea.
