God Delivers Israel Out of Egypt

Posted June 13, 2008

 

Exodus 14:30-31 says, "Thus the Lord saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea shore. v.30

 

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." v.31

 

Continuing on in Exodus 15:1-27, "Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the Lord, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the Lord, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea. v.1

 

The Lord is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt him. v.2

 

The Lord is a man of war: the Lord is his name. v.3

 

Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea. v.4

 

The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone. v.5

 

Thy right hand, O Lord, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O Lord, hath dashed in pieces the enemy. v.6

 

And in the greatness of thine excellency thou hast overthrown them that rose up against thee: thou sentest forth thy wrath, which consumed them as stubble. v.7

 

And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as an heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea. v.8

 

The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them. v.9

 

Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters. v.10

 

Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders? v.11

 

Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them. v.12

 

Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation. v.13

 

The people shall hear, and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina. v.14

 

Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away. v.15

 

Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O Lord, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased. v.16

 

Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance, in the place, O Lord, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O Lord, which thy hands have established. v.17

 

The Lord shall reign for ever and ever. v.18

 

For the horse of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and the Lord brought again the waters of the sea upon them; but the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea. v.19

 

And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances. v.20

 

And Miriam answered them, Sing ye to the Lord, for he hath triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea. v.21

 

So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water. v.22

 

And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah. v.23

 

And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink? v.24

 

And he cried unto the Lord; and the Lord shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them, v.25

 

And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee. v.26

 

And they came to Elim, where were twelve wells of water, and threescore and ten palm trees: and they encamped there by the waters." v.27

 

In chapter 16, the children of Israel continue to murmur. Exodus 16:2-3 says, "And the whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness: v.2

 

And the children of Israel said unto them, Would to God we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh pots, and when we did eat bread to the full; for ye have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger." v.3

 

In verse 6, Moses and Aaron speak to the children of Israel. It states in verses 6-8, "And Moses and Aaron said unto all the children of Israel, At even, then ye shall know that the Lord hath brought you out from the land of Egypt: v.6

 

And in the morning, then ye shall see the glory of the Lord; for that he heareth your murmurings against the Lord: and what are we, that ye murmur against us? v.7

 

And Moses said, This shall be, when the Lord shall give you in the evening flesh to eat, and in the morning bread to the full; for that the Lord heareth your murmurings which ye murmur against him: and what are we? your murmurings are not against us, but against the Lord." v.8

 

In verse 9, Moses called the children of Israel to come near before the Lord, because of their murmurings, "And Moses spake unto Aaron, Say unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, Come near before the Lord: for he hath heard your murmurings. v.9

 

And it came to pass, as Aaron spake unto the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and, behold, the glory of the Lord appeared in the cloud." v.10

 

In verse 11, the Lord speaks, "And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, v.11

 

I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel: speak unto them, saying, At even ye shall eat flesh, and in the morning ye shall be filled with bread; and ye shall know that I am the Lord your God. v.12

 

And it came to pass, that at even the quails came up, and covered the camp: and in the morning the dew lay round about the host. v.13

 

And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay a small round thing, as small as the hoar frost on the ground. v.14

 

And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is manna: for they wist not what it was. And Moses said unto them, This is the bread which the Lord hath given you to eat." v.15

 

 

God bless you,
