Exodus 14:1-10

Crossing the Red Sea

1Then the Lord said to Moses, 2Tell the people of Israel to aturn back and encamp in front of Pi-hahiroth, between bMigdol and the sea, in front of Baal-zephon; you shall encamp facing it, by the sea. 3For Pharaoh will say of the people of Israel, ‘They are wandering in the land; the wilderness has shut them in.’ 4And cI will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and he will pursue them, and I will dget glory over Pharaoh and all his host, eand the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord.” And they did so.

5When the king of Egypt was told that the people had fled, the fmind of Pharaoh and his servants was changed toward the people, and they said, “What is this we have done, that we have let Israel go from serving us?” 6So he made ready his chariot and took his army with him, 7and took gsix hundred chosen chariots and all the other chariots of Egypt with officers over all of them. 8And hthe Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued the people of Israel while ithe people of Israel were going out defiantly. 9The jEgyptians pursued them, all Pharaoh’s horses and chariots and his horsemen and his army, and overtook them kencamped at the sea, by Pi-hahiroth, in front of Baal-zephon.

10When Pharaoh drew near, the people of Israel lifted up their eyes, and behold, the Egyptians were marching after them, and they feared greatly. And the people of Israel lcried out to the Lord.
