Exodus - Chapters 1-15
the bible on one page - Exodus - Chapters 1-15 Newest pictures
1:1: Now these are the names of the sons of Israel, who came into Egypt (every man and his household came with Jacob):
1:2: Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah,
1:3: Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin,
1:4: Dan and Naphtali, Gad and Asher.
1:5: All the souls who came out of the Jacob's body were seventy souls, and Joseph was in Egypt already.
1:6: Joseph died, as did all his brothers, and all that generation.
1:7: The children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and grew exceedingly mighty; and the land was filled with them.
1:8: Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who didn't know Joseph.
1:9: He said to his people, "Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we.
1:10: Come, let us deal wisely with them, lest they multiply, and it happen that when any war breaks out, they also join themselves to our enemies, and fight against us, and escape out of the land."
1:11: Therefore they set taskmasters over them to afflict them with their burdens. They built storage cities for Pharaoh: Pithom and Raamses.
1:12: But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and the more they spread out. They were grieved because of the children of Israel.
1:13: The Egyptians ruthlessly made the children of Israel serve,
1:14: and they made their lives bitter with hard service, in mortar and in brick, and in all manner of service in the field, all their service, in which they ruthlessly made them serve.
1:15: The king of Egypt spoke to the Hebrew midwives, of whom the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah,
1:16: and he said, "When you perform the duty of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them on the birth stool; if it is a son, then you shall kill him; but if it is a daughter, then she shall live."
1:17: But the midwives feared God, and didn't do what the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the baby boys alive.
1:18: The king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said to them, "Why have you done this thing, and have saved the men-children alive?"
1:19: The midwives said to Pharaoh, "Because the Hebrew women aren't like the Egyptian women; for they are vigorous, and give birth before the midwife comes to them."
1:20: God dealt well with the midwives, and the people multiplied, and grew very mighty.
1:21: It happened, because the midwives feared God, that he gave them families.
1:22: Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, "You shall cast every son who is born into the river, and every daughter you shall save alive."

2:1: A man of the house of Levi went and took a daughter of Levi as his wife.
2:2: The woman conceived, and bore a son. When she saw that he was a fine child, she hid him three months.
2:3: When she could no longer hide him, she took a papyrus basket for him, and coated it with tar and with pitch. She put the child in it, and laid it in the reeds by the river's bank.
2:4: His sister stood far off, to see what would be done to him.
2:5: Pharaoh's daughter came down to bathe at the river. Her maidens walked along by the riverside. She saw the basket among the reeds, and sent her handmaid to get it.
2:6: She opened it, and saw the child, and, behold, the baby cried. She had compassion on him, and said, "This is one of the Hebrews' children."
2:7: Then his sister said to Pharaoh's daughter, "Should I go and call a nurse for you from the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for you?"
2:8: Pharaoh's daughter said to her, "Go." The maiden went and called the child's mother.
2:9: Pharaoh's daughter said to her, "Take this child away, and nurse him for me, and I will give you your wages." The woman took the child, and nursed it.
2:10: The child grew, and she brought him to Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son. She named him Moses,{"Moses" sounds like the Hebrew for "draw out".} and said, "Because I drew him out of the water."
2:11: It happened in those days, when Moses had grown up, that he went out to his brothers, and looked at their burdens. He saw an Egyptian striking a Hebrew, one of his brothers.
2:12: He looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no one, he killed the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand.
2:13: He went out the second day, and, behold, two men of the Hebrews were fighting with each other. He said to him who did the wrong, "Why do you strike your fellow?"
2:14: He said, "Who made you a prince and a judge over us? Do you plan to kill me, as you killed the Egyptian?" Moses was afraid, and said, "Surely this thing is known."
2:15: Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to kill Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and lived in the land of Midian, and he sat down by a well.
2:16: Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters. They came and drew water, and filled the troughs to water their father's flock.
2:17: The shepherds came and drove them away; but Moses stood up and helped them, and watered their flock.
2:18: When they came to Reuel, their father, he said, "How is it that you have returned so early today?"
2:19: They said, "An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds, and moreover he drew water for us, and watered the flock."
2:20: He said to his daughters, "Where is he? Why is it that you have left the man? Call him, that he may eat bread."
2:21: Moses was content to dwell with the man. He gave Moses Zipporah, his daughter.
2:22: She bore a son, and he named him Gershom,{"Gershom" sounds like the Hebrew for "an alien there."} for he said, "I have lived as a foreigner in a foreign land."
2:23: It happened in the course of those many days, that the king of Egypt died, and the children of Israel sighed because of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up to God because of the bondage.
2:24: God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.
2:25: God saw the children of Israel, and God was concerned about them.

3:1: Now Moses was keeping the flock of Jethro, his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the back of the wilderness, and came to God's mountain, to Horeb.
3:2: The angel of Yahweh appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush. He looked, and behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.
3:3: Moses said, I will turn aside now, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.
3:4: When Yahweh saw that he turned aside to see, God called to him out of the midst of the bush, and said, "Moses! Moses!" He said, "Here I am."
3:5: He said, "Don't come close. Take off your sandals from off your feet, for the place you are standing on is holy ground."
3:6: Moreover he said, "I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob." Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look at God.
3:7: Yahweh said, "I have surely seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters, for I know their sorrows.
3:8: I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land to a good and large land, to a land flowing with milk and honey; to the place of the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Amorite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite.
3:9: Now, behold, the cry of the children of Israel has come to me. Moreover I have seen the oppression with which the Egyptians oppress them.
3:10: Come now therefore, and I will send you to Pharaoh, that you may bring forth my people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt."
3:11: Moses said to God, "Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?"
3:12: He said, "Certainly I will be with you. This will be the token to you, that I have sent you: when you have brought forth the people out of Egypt, you shall serve God on this mountain."
3:13: Moses said to God, "Behold, when I come to the children of Israel, and tell them, 'The God of your fathers has sent me to you;' and they ask me, 'What is his name?' What should I tell them?"
3:14: God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM," and he said, "You shall tell the children of Israel this: "I AM has sent me to you."
3:15: God said moreover to Moses, "You shall tell the children of Israel this, 'Yahweh, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.' This is my name forever, and this is my memorial to all generations.
3:16: Go, and gather the elders of Israel together, and tell them, 'Yahweh, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, has appeared to me, saying, "I have surely visited you, and seen that which is done to you in Egypt;
3:17: and I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt to the land of the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Amorite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite, to a land flowing with milk and honey."'
3:18: They will listen to your voice, and you shall come, you and the elders of Israel, to the king of Egypt, and you shall tell him, 'Yahweh, the God of the Hebrews, has met with us. Now please let us go three days' journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to Yahweh, our God.'
3:19: I know that the king of Egypt won't give you permission to go, no, not by a mighty hand.
3:20: I will put forth my hand and strike Egypt with all my wonders which I will do in the midst of it, and after that he will let you go.
3:21: I will give this people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, and it will happen that when you go, you shall not go empty-handed.
3:22: But every woman shall ask of her neighbor, and of her who visits her house, jewels of silver, jewels of gold, and clothing; and you shall put them on your sons, and on your daughters. You shall despoil the Egyptians.

4:1: Moses answered, "But, behold, they will not believe me, nor listen to my voice; for they will say, 'Yahweh has not appeared to you.'"
4:2: Yahweh said to him, "What is that in your hand?" He said, "A rod."
4:3: He said, "Throw it on the ground." He threw it on the ground, and it became a snake; and Moses ran away from it.
4:4: Yahweh said to Moses, "Put forth your hand, and take it by the tail." He put forth his hand, and laid hold of it, and it became a rod in his hand.
4:5: "That they may believe that Yahweh, the God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has appeared to you."
4:6: Yahweh said furthermore to him, "Now put your hand inside your cloak." He put his hand inside his cloak, and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous, as white as snow.
4:7: He said, "Put your hand inside your cloak again." He put his hand inside his cloak again, and when he took it out of his cloak, behold, it had turned again as his other flesh.
4:8: "It will happen, if they will neither believe you nor listen to the voice of the first sign, that they will believe the voice of the latter sign.
4:9: It will happen, if they will not believe even these two signs, neither listen to your voice, that you shall take of the water of the river, and pour it on the dry land. The water which you take out of the river will become blood on the dry land."
4:10: Moses said to Yahweh, "Oh, Lord, I am not eloquent, neither before now, nor since you have spoken to your servant; for I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue."
4:11: Yahweh said to him, "Who made man's mouth? Or who makes one mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Isn't it I, Yahweh?
4:12: Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth, and teach you what you shall speak."
4:13: He said, "Oh, Lord, please send someone else."
4:14: The anger of Yahweh was kindled against Moses, and he said, "What about Aaron, your brother, the Levite? I know that he can speak well. Also, behold, he comes forth to meet you. When he sees you, he will be glad in his heart.
4:15: You shall speak to him, and put the words in his mouth. I will be with your mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what you shall do.
4:16: He will be your spokesman to the people; and it will happen, that he will be to you a mouth, and you will be to him as God.
4:17: You shall take this rod in your hand, with which you shall do the signs."
4:18: Moses went and returned to Jethro his father-in-law, and said to him, "Please let me go and return to my brothers who are in Egypt, and see whether they are still alive." Jethro said to Moses, "Go in peace."
4:19: Yahweh said to Moses in Midian, "Go, return into Egypt; for all the men who sought your life are dead."
4:20: Moses took his wife and his sons, and set them on a donkey, and he returned to the land of Egypt. Moses took God's rod in his hand.
4:21: Yahweh said to Moses, "When you go back into Egypt, see that you do before Pharaoh all the wonders which I have put in your hand, but I will harden his heart and he will not let the people go.
4:22: You shall tell Pharaoh, 'Thus says Yahweh, Israel is my son, my firstborn,
4:23: and I have said to you, "Let my son go, that he may serve me;" and you have refused to let him go. Behold, I will kill your son, your firstborn.'"
4:24: It happened on the way at a lodging place, that Yahweh met him and wanted to kill him.
4:25: Then Zipporah took a flint, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast it at his feet; and she said, "Surely you are a bridegroom of blood to me."
4:26: So he let him alone. Then she said, "You are a bridegroom of blood," because of the circumcision.
4:27: Yahweh said to Aaron, "Go into the wilderness to meet Moses." He went, and met him on God's mountain, and kissed him.
4:28: Moses told Aaron all the words of Yahweh with which he had sent him, and all the signs with which he had charged him.
4:29: Moses and Aaron went and gathered together all the elders of the children of Israel.
4:30: Aaron spoke all the words which Yahweh had spoken to Moses, and did the signs in the sight of the people.
4:31: The people believed, and when they heard that Yahweh had visited the children of Israel, and that he had seen their affliction, then they bowed their heads and worshiped.

5:1: Afterward Moses and Aaron came, and said to Pharaoh, "This is what Yahweh, the God of Israel, says, 'Let my people go, that they may hold a feast to me in the wilderness.'"
5:2: Pharaoh said, "Who is Yahweh, that I should listen to his voice to let Israel go? I don't know Yahweh, and moreover I will not let Israel go."
5:3: They said, "The God of the Hebrews has met with us. Please let us go three days' journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice to Yahweh, our God, lest he fall on us with pestilence, or with the sword."
5:4: The king of Egypt said to them, "Why do you, Moses and Aaron, take the people from their work? Get back to your burdens!"
5:5: Pharaoh said, "Behold, the people of the land are now many, and you make them rest from their burdens."
5:6: The same day Pharaoh commanded the taskmasters of the people, and their officers, saying,
5:7: "You shall no longer give the people straw to make brick, as before. Let them go and gather straw for themselves.
5:8: The number of the bricks, which they made before, you require from them. You shall not diminish anything of it, for they are idle; therefore they cry, saying, 'Let us go and sacrifice to our God.'
5:9: Let heavier work be laid on the men, that they may labor therein; and don't let them pay any attention to lying words."
5:10: The taskmasters of the people went out, and their officers, and they spoke to the people, saying, This is what Pharaoh says: "I will not give you straw.
5:11: Go yourselves, get straw where you can find it, for nothing of your work shall be diminished."
5:12: So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the land of Egypt to gather stubble for straw.
5:13: The taskmasters were urgent saying, "Fulfill your work quota daily, as when there was straw!"
5:14: The officers of the children of Israel, whom Pharaoh's taskmasters had set over them, were beaten, and demanded, "Why haven't you fulfilled your quota both yesterday and today, in making brick as before?"
5:15: Then the officers of the children of Israel came and cried to Pharaoh, saying, "Why do you deal this way with your servants?
5:16: No straw is given to your servants, and they tell us, 'Make brick!' and, behold, your servants are beaten; but the fault is in your own people."
5:17: But he said, "You are idle! You are idle! Therefore you say, 'Let us go and sacrifice to Yahweh.'
5:18: Go therefore now, and work, for no straw shall be given to you, yet shall you deliver the same number of bricks!"
5:19: The officers of the children of Israel saw that they were in trouble, when it was said, "You shall not diminish anything from your daily quota of bricks!"
5:20: They met Moses and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they came forth from Pharaoh:
5:21: and they said to them, "May Yahweh look at you, and judge, because you have made us a stench to be abhorred in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in their hand to kill us."
5:22: Moses returned to Yahweh, and said, "Lord, why have you brought trouble on this people? Why is it that you have sent me?
5:23: For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in your name, he has brought trouble on this people; neither have you delivered your people at all."

6:1: Yahweh said to Moses, "Now you shall see what I will do to Pharaoh, for by a strong hand he shall let them go, and by a strong hand he shall drive them out of his land."
6:2: God spoke to Moses, and said to him, "I am Yahweh;
6:3: and I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, as God Almighty; but by my name Yahweh I was not known to them.
6:4: I have also established my covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their travels, in which they lived as aliens.
6:5: Moreover I have heard the groaning of the children of Israel, whom the Egyptians keep in bondage, and I have remembered my covenant.
6:6: Therefore tell the children of Israel, 'I am Yahweh, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm, and with great judgments:
6:7: and I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a God; and you shall know that I am Yahweh your God, who brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.
6:8: I will bring you into the land which I swore to give to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it to you for a heritage: I am Yahweh.'"
6:9: Moses spoke so to the children of Israel, but they didn't listen to Moses for anguish of spirit, and for cruel bondage.
6:10: Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
6:11: "Go in, speak to Pharaoh king of Egypt, that he let the children of Israel go out of his land."
6:12: Moses spoke before Yahweh, saying, "Behold, the children of Israel haven't listened to me. How then shall Pharaoh listen to me, who am of uncircumcised lips?"
6:13: Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, and gave them a charge to the children of Israel, and to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt.
6:14: These are the heads of their fathers' houses. The sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel: Hanoch, and Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi; these are the families of Reuben.
6:15: The sons of Simeon: Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin, and Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanite woman; these are the families of Simeon.
6:16: These are the names of the sons of Levi according to their generations: Gershon, and Kohath, and Merari; and the years of the life of Levi were one hundred thirty-seven years.
6:17: The sons of Gershon: Libni and Shimei, according to their families.
6:18: The sons of Kohath: Amram, and Izhar, and Hebron, and Uzziel; and the years of the life of Kohath were one hundred thirty-three years.
6:19: The sons of Merari: Mahli and Mushi. These are the families of the Levites according to their generations.
6:20: Amram took Jochebed his father's sister to himself as wife; and she bore him Aaron and Moses: and the years of the life of Amram were a hundred and thirty-seven years.
6:21: The sons of Izhar: Korah, and Nepheg, and Zichri.
6:22: The sons of Uzziel: Mishael, and Elzaphan, and Sithri.
6:23: Aaron took Elisheba, the daughter of Amminadab, the sister of Nahshon, as his wife; and she bore him Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar.
6:24: The sons of Korah: Assir, and Elkanah, and Abiasaph; these are the families of the Korahites.
6:25: Eleazar Aaron's son took one of the daughters of Putiel as his wife; and she bore him Phinehas. These are the heads of the fathers' houses of the Levites according to their families.
6:26: These are that Aaron and Moses, to whom Yahweh said, "Bring out the children of Israel from the land of Egypt according to their hosts."
6:27: These are those who spoke to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring out the children of Israel from Egypt. These are that Moses and Aaron.
6:28: It happened on the day when Yahweh spoke to Moses in the land of Egypt,
6:29: that Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, "I am Yahweh. Speak to Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I speak to you."
6:30: Moses said before Yahweh, "Behold, I am of uncircumcised lips, and how shall Pharaoh listen to me?"

7:1: Yahweh said to Moses, "Behold, I have made you as God to Pharaoh; and Aaron your brother shall be your prophet.
7:2: You shall speak all that I command you; and Aaron your brother shall speak to Pharaoh, that he let the children of Israel go out of his land.
7:3: I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt.
7:4: But Pharaoh will not listen to you, and I will lay my hand on Egypt, and bring forth my hosts, my people the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments.
7:5: The Egyptians shall know that I am Yahweh, when I stretch forth my hand on Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel from among them."
7:6: Moses and Aaron did so. As Yahweh commanded them, so they did.
7:7: Moses was eighty years old, and Aaron eighty-three years old, when they spoke to Pharaoh.
7:8: Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying,
7:9: "When Pharaoh speaks to you, saying, 'Perform a miracle!' then you shall tell Aaron, 'Take your rod, and cast it down before Pharaoh, that it become a serpent.'"
7:10: Moses and Aaron went in to Pharaoh, and they did so, as Yahweh had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh and before his servants, and it became a serpent.
7:11: Then Pharaoh also called for the wise men and the sorcerers. They also, the magicians of Egypt, did in like manner with their enchantments.
7:12: For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods.
7:13: Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he didn't listen to them; as Yahweh had spoken.
7:14: Yahweh said to Moses, "Pharaoh's heart is stubborn. He refuses to let the people go.
7:15: Go to Pharaoh in the morning. Behold, he goes out to the water; and you shall stand by the river's bank to meet him; and the rod which was turned to a serpent you shall take in your hand.
7:16: You shall tell him, 'Yahweh, the God of the Hebrews, has sent me to you, saying, "Let my people go, that they may serve me in the wilderness:" and, behold, until now you haven't listened.
7:17: Thus says Yahweh, "In this you shall know that I am Yahweh. Behold, I will strike with the rod that is in my hand on the waters which are in the river, and they shall be turned to blood.
7:18: The fish that are in the river shall die, and the river shall become foul; and the Egyptians shall loathe to drink water from the river."'"
7:19: Yahweh said to Moses, "Tell Aaron, 'Take your rod, and stretch out your hand over the waters of Egypt, over their rivers, over their streams, and over their pools, and over all their ponds of water, that they may become blood; and there shall be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood and in vessels of stone.'"
7:20: Moses and Aaron did so, as Yahweh commanded; and he lifted up the rod, and struck the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood.
7:21: The fish that were in the river died; and the river became foul, and the Egyptians couldn't drink water from the river; and the blood was throughout all the land of Egypt.
7:22: The magicians of Egypt did in like manner with their enchantments; and Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he didn't listen to them; as Yahweh had spoken.
7:23: Pharaoh turned and went into his house, neither did he lay even this to heart.
7:24: All the Egyptians dug round about the river for water to drink; for they couldn't drink of the water of the river.
7:25: Seven days were fulfilled, after Yahweh had struck the river.

8:1: Yahweh spoke to Moses, Go in to Pharaoh, and tell him, "This is what Yahweh says, 'Let my people go, that they may serve me.
8:2: If you refuse to let them go, behold, I will plague all your borders with frogs:
8:3: and the river shall swarm with frogs, which shall go up and come into your house, and into your bedchamber, and on your bed, and into the house of your servants, and on your people, and into your ovens, and into your kneading-troughs:
8:4: and the frogs shall come up both on you, and on your people, and on all your servants.'"
8:5: Yahweh said to Moses, "Tell Aaron, 'Stretch forth your hand with your rod over the rivers, over the streams, and over the pools, and cause frogs to come up on the land of Egypt.'"
8:6: Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and the frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt.
8:7: The magicians did in like manner with their enchantments, and brought up frogs on the land of Egypt.
8:8: Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, "Entreat Yahweh, that he take away the frogs from me, and from my people; and I will let the people go, that they may sacrifice to Yahweh."
8:9: Moses said to Pharaoh, "I give you the honor of setting the time that I should pray for you, and for your servants, and for your people, that the frogs be destroyed from you and your houses, and remain in the river only."
8:10: He said, "Tomorrow." He said, "Be it according to your word, that you may know that there is none like Yahweh our God.
8:11: The frogs shall depart from you, and from your houses, and from your servants, and from your people. They shall remain in the river only."
8:12: Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh, and Moses cried to Yahweh concerning the frogs which he had brought on Pharaoh.
8:13: Yahweh did according to the word of Moses, and the frogs died out of the houses, out of the courts, and out of the fields.
8:14: They gathered them together in heaps, and the land stank.
8:15: But when Pharaoh saw that there was a respite, he hardened his heart, and didn't listen to them, as Yahweh had spoken.
8:16: Yahweh said to Moses, "Tell Aaron, 'Stretch out your rod, and strike the dust of the earth, that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt.'"
8:17: They did so; and Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod, and struck the dust of the earth, and there were lice on man, and on animal; all the dust of the earth became lice throughout all the land of Egypt.
8:18: The magicians tried with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they couldn't. There were lice on man, and on animal.
8:19: Then the magicians said to Pharaoh, "This is the finger of God:" and Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he didn't listen to them; as Yahweh had spoken.
8:20: Yahweh said to Moses, "Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh; behold, he comes forth to the water; and tell him, 'This is what Yahweh says, "Let my people go, that they may serve me.
8:21: Else, if you will not let my people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies on you, and on your servants, and on your people, and into your houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are.
8:22: I will set apart in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end you may know that I am Yahweh in the midst of the earth.
8:23: I will put a division between my people and your people: by tomorrow shall this sign be."'"
8:24: Yahweh did so; and there came grievous swarms of flies into the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants' houses: and in all the land of Egypt the land was corrupted by reason of the swarms of flies.
8:25: Pharaoh called for Moses and for Aaron, and said, "Go, sacrifice to your God in the land!"
8:26: Moses said, "It isn't appropriate to do so; for we shall sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians to Yahweh our God. Behold, shall we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes, and won't they stone us?
8:27: We will go three days' journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice to Yahweh our God, as he shall command us."
8:28: Pharaoh said, "I will let you go, that you may sacrifice to Yahweh your God in the wilderness, only you shall not go very far away. Pray for me."
8:29: Moses said, "Behold, I go out from you, and I will pray to Yahweh that the swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people, tomorrow; only don't let Pharaoh deal deceitfully any more in not letting the people go to sacrifice to Yahweh."
8:30: Moses went out from Pharaoh, and prayed to Yahweh.
8:31: Yahweh did according to the word of Moses, and he removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people. There remained not one.
8:32: Pharaoh hardened his heart this time also, and he didn't let the people go.

9:1: Then Yahweh said to Moses, "Go in to Pharaoh, and tell him, 'This is what Yahweh, the God of the Hebrews, says: "Let my people go, that they may serve me.
9:2: For if you refuse to let them go, and hold them still,
9:3: behold, the hand of Yahweh is on your cattle which are in the field, on the horses, on the donkeys, on the camels, on the herds, and on the flocks with a very grievous pestilence.
9:4: Yahweh will make a distinction between the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt; and there shall nothing die of all that belongs to the children of Israel."'"
9:5: Yahweh appointed a set time, saying, "Tomorrow Yahweh shall do this thing in the land."
9:6: Yahweh did that thing on the next day; and all the cattle of Egypt died, but of the cattle of the children of Israel, not one died.
9:7: Pharaoh sent, and, behold, there was not so much as one of the cattle of the Israelites dead. But the heart of Pharaoh was stubborn, and he didn't let the people go.
9:8: Yahweh said to Moses and to Aaron, "Take to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward the sky in the sight of Pharaoh.
9:9: It shall become small dust over all the land of Egypt, and shall be a boil breaking forth with boils on man and on animal, throughout all the land of Egypt."
9:10: They took ashes of the furnace, and stood before Pharaoh; and Moses sprinkled it up toward the sky; and it became a boil breaking forth with boils on man and on animal.
9:11: The magicians couldn't stand before Moses because of the boils; for the boils were on the magicians, and on all the Egyptians.
9:12: Yahweh hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he didn't listen to them, as Yahweh had spoken to Moses.
9:13: Yahweh said to Moses, "Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh, and tell him, 'This is what Yahweh, the God of the Hebrews, says: "Let my people go, that they may serve me.
9:14: For this time I will send all my plagues against your heart, against your officials, and against your people; that you may know that there is none like me in all the earth.
9:15: For now I would have put forth my hand, and struck you and your people with pestilence, and you would have been cut off from the earth;
9:16: but indeed for this cause I have made you stand: to show you my power, and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth;
9:17: as you still exalt yourself against my people, that you won't let them go.
9:18: Behold, tomorrow about this time I will cause it to rain a very grievous hail, such as has not been in Egypt since the day it was founded even until now.
9:19: Now therefore command that all of your cattle and all that you have in the field be brought into shelter. Every man and animal that is found in the field, and isn't brought home, the hail shall come down on them, and they shall die."'"
9:20: Those who feared the word of Yahweh among the servants of Pharaoh made their servants and their cattle flee into the houses.
9:21: Whoever didn't regard the word of Yahweh left his servants and his cattle in the field.
9:22: Yahweh said to Moses, "Stretch forth your hand toward the sky, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, on man, and on animal, and on every herb of the field, throughout the land of Egypt."
9:23: Moses stretched forth his rod toward the heavens, and Yahweh sent thunder, hail, and lightning flashed down to the earth. Yahweh rained hail on the land of Egypt.
9:24: So there was very severe hail, and lightning mixed with the hail, such as had not been in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.
9:25: The hail struck throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and animal; and the hail struck every herb of the field, and broke every tree of the field.
9:26: Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, there was no hail.
9:27: Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said to them, "I have sinned this time. Yahweh is righteous, and I and my people are wicked.
9:28: Pray to Yahweh; for there has been enough of mighty thunderings and hail. I will let you go, and you shall stay no longer."
9:29: Moses said to him, "As soon as I have gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands to Yahweh. The thunders shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that you may know that the earth is Yahweh's.
9:30: But as for you and your servants, I know that you don't yet fear Yahweh God."
9:31: The flax and the barley were struck, for the barley was in the ear, and the flax was in bloom.
9:32: But the wheat and the spelt were not struck, for they had not grown up.
9:33: Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh, and spread abroad his hands to Yahweh; and the thunders and hail ceased, and the rain was not poured on the earth.
9:34: When Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunders were ceased, he sinned yet more, and hardened his heart, he and his servants.
9:35: The heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he didn't let the children of Israel go, just as Yahweh had spoken through Moses.

10:1: Yahweh said to Moses, "Go in to Pharaoh, for I have hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants, that I may show these my signs in the midst of them,
10:2: and that you may tell in the hearing of your son, and of your son's son, what things I have done to Egypt, and my signs which I have done among them; that you may know that I am Yahweh."
10:3: Moses and Aaron went in to Pharaoh, and said to him, "This is what Yahweh, the God of the Hebrews, says: 'How long will you refuse to humble yourself before me? Let my people go, that they may serve me.
10:4: Or else, if you refuse to let my people go, behold, tomorrow I will bring locusts into your country,
10:5: and they shall cover the surface of the earth, so that one won't be able to see the earth. They shall eat the residue of that which has escaped, which remains to you from the hail, and shall eat every tree which grows for you out of the field.
10:6: Your houses shall be filled, and the houses of all your servants, and the houses of all the Egyptians; as neither your fathers nor your fathers' fathers have seen, since the day that they were on the earth to this day.'" He turned, and went out from Pharaoh.
10:7: Pharaoh's servants said to him, "How long will this man be a snare to us? Let the men go, that they may serve Yahweh, their God. Don't you yet know that Egypt is destroyed?"
10:8: Moses and Aaron were brought again to Pharaoh, and he said to them, "Go, serve Yahweh your God; but who are those who will go?"
10:9: Moses said, "We will go with our young and with our old; with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our herds will we go; for we must hold a feast to Yahweh."
10:10: He said to them, "Yahweh be with you if I will let you go with your little ones! See, evil is clearly before your faces.
10:11: Not so! Go now you who are men, and serve Yahweh; for that is what you desire!" They were driven out from Pharaoh's presence.
10:12: Yahweh said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come up on the land of Egypt, and eat every herb of the land, even all that the hail has left."
10:13: Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt, and Yahweh brought an east wind on the land all that day, and all the night; and when it was morning, the east wind brought the locusts.
10:14: The locusts went up over all the land of Egypt, and rested in all the borders of Egypt. They were very grievous. Before them there were no such locusts as they, neither after them shall be such.
10:15: For they covered the surface of the whole earth, so that the land was darkened, and they ate every herb of the land, and all the fruit of the trees which the hail had left. There remained nothing green, either tree or herb of the field, through all the land of Egypt.
10:16: Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron in haste, and he said, "I have sinned against Yahweh your God, and against you.
10:17: Now therefore please forgive my sin again, and pray to Yahweh your God, that he may also take away from me this death."
10:18: He went out from Pharaoh, and prayed to Yahweh.
10:19: Yahweh turned an exceeding strong west wind, which took up the locusts, and drove them into the Red Sea. There remained not one locust in all the borders of Egypt.
10:20: But Yahweh hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he didn't let the children of Israel go.
10:21: Yahweh said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand toward the sky, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt."
10:22: Moses stretched forth his hand toward the sky, and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days.
10:23: They didn't see one another, neither did anyone rise from his place for three days; but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.
10:24: Pharaoh called to Moses, and said, "Go, serve Yahweh. Only let your flocks and your herds stay behind. Let your little ones also go with you."
10:25: Moses said, "You must also give into our hand sacrifices and burnt-offerings, that we may sacrifice to Yahweh our God.
10:26: Our cattle also shall go with us. There shall not a hoof be left behind, for of it we must take to serve Yahweh our God; and we don't know with what we must serve Yahweh, until we come there."
10:27: But Yahweh hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he wouldn't let them go.
10:28: Pharaoh said to him, "Get away from me! Be careful to see my face no more; for in the day you see my face you shall die!"
10:29: Moses said, "You have spoken well. I will see your face again no more."

11:1: Yahweh said to Moses, "Yet one plague more will I bring on Pharaoh, and on Egypt; afterwards he will let you go. When he lets you go, he will surely thrust you out altogether.
11:2: Speak now in the ears of the people, and let them ask every man of his neighbor, and every woman of her neighbor, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold."
11:3: Yahweh gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh's servants, and in the sight of the people.
11:4: Moses said, "This is what Yahweh says: 'About midnight I will go out into the midst of Egypt,
11:5: and all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sits on his throne, even to the firstborn of the maid-servant who is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of cattle.
11:6: There shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there has not been, nor shall be any more.
11:7: But against any of the children of Israel a dog won't even bark or move its tongue, against man or animal; that you may know that Yahweh makes a distinction between the Egyptians and Israel.
11:8: All these your servants shall come down to me, and bow down themselves to me, saying, 'Get out, and all the people who follow you; and after that I will go out.'" He went out from Pharaoh in hot anger.
11:9: Yahweh said to Moses, "Pharaoh won't listen to you, that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt."
11:10: Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh, and Yahweh hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he didn't let the children of Israel go out of his land.

12:1: Yahweh spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,
12:2: "This month shall be to you the beginning of months. It shall be the first month of the year to you.
12:3: Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying, 'On the tenth day of this month, they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to their fathers' houses, a lamb for a household;
12:4: and if the household be too little for a lamb, then he and his neighbor next to his house shall take one according to the number of the souls; according to what everyone can eat you shall make your count for the lamb.
12:5: Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male a year old. You shall take it from the sheep, or from the goats:
12:6: and you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month; and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it at evening.
12:7: They shall take some of the blood, and put it on the two side-posts and on the lintel, on the houses in which they shall eat it.
12:8: They shall eat the flesh in that night, roasted with fire, and unleavened bread. They shall eat it with bitter herbs.
12:9: Don't eat it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roasted with fire; with its head, its legs and its inner parts.
12:10: You shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; but that which remains of it until the morning you shall burn with fire.
12:11: This is how you shall eat it: with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and you shall eat it in haste: it is Yahweh's Passover.
12:12: For I will go through the land of Egypt in that night, and will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and animal. Against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments: I am Yahweh.
12:13: The blood shall be to you for a token on the houses where you are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and there shall no plague be on you to destroy you, when I strike the land of Egypt.
12:14: This day shall be to you for a memorial, and you shall keep it a feast to Yahweh: throughout your generations you shall keep it a feast by an ordinance forever.
12:15: Seven days shall you eat unleavened bread; even the first day you shall put away yeast out of your houses, for whoever eats leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.
12:16: In the first day there shall be to you a holy convocation, and in the seventh day a holy convocation; no manner of work shall be done in them, except that which every man must eat, that only may be done by you.
12:17: You shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this same day have I brought your hosts out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall you observe this day throughout your generations by an ordinance forever.
12:18: In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at evening, you shall eat unleavened bread, until the twenty first day of the month at evening.
12:19: Seven days shall there be no yeast found in your houses, for whoever eats that which is leavened, that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a foreigner, or one who is born in the land.
12:20: You shall eat nothing leavened. In all your habitations you shall eat unleavened bread.'"
12:21: Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said to them, "Draw out, and take lambs according to your families, and kill the Passover.
12:22: You shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two side-posts with the blood that is in the basin; and none of you shall go out of the door of his house until the morning.
12:23: For Yahweh will pass through to strike the Egyptians; and when he sees the blood on the lintel, and on the two side-posts, Yahweh will pass over the door, and will not allow the destroyer to come in to your houses to strike you.
12:24: You shall observe this thing for an ordinance to you and to your sons forever.
12:25: It shall happen when you have come to the land which Yahweh will give you, according as he has promised, that you shall keep this service.
12:26: It will happen, when your children ask you, 'What do you mean by this service?'
12:27: that you shall say, 'It is the sacrifice of Yahweh's Passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he struck the Egyptians, and spared our houses.'" The people bowed their heads and worshiped.
12:28: The children of Israel went and did so; as Yahweh had commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did.
12:29: It happened at midnight, that Yahweh struck all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.
12:30: Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt, for there was not a house where there was not one dead.
12:31: He called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, "Rise up, get out from among my people, both you and the children of Israel; and go, serve Yahweh, as you have said!
12:32: Take both your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and be gone; and bless me also!"
12:33: The Egyptians were urgent with the people, to send them out of the land in haste, for they said, "We are all dead men."
12:34: The people took their dough before it was leavened, their kneading-troughs being bound up in their clothes on their shoulders.
12:35: The children of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and they asked of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and clothing.
12:36: Yahweh gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they let them have what they asked. They despoiled the Egyptians.
12:37: The children of Israel traveled from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot who were men, besides children.
12:38: A mixed multitude went up also with them, with flocks, herds, and even very much cattle.
12:39: They baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought forth out of Egypt; for it wasn't leavened, because they were thrust out of Egypt, and couldn't wait, neither had they prepared for themselves any food.
12:40: Now the time that the children of Israel lived in Egypt was four hundred thirty years.
12:41: It happened at the end of four hundred thirty years, even the same day it happened, that all the hosts of Yahweh went out from the land of Egypt.
12:42: It is a night to be much observed to Yahweh for bringing them out from the land of Egypt. This is that night of Yahweh, to be much observed of all the children of Israel throughout their generations.
12:43: Yahweh said to Moses and Aaron, "This is the ordinance of the Passover. There shall no foreigner eat of it,
12:44: but every man's servant who is bought for money, when you have circumcised him, then shall he eat of it.
12:45: A foreigner and a hired servant shall not eat of it.
12:46: In one house shall it be eaten; you shall not carry forth anything of the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall you break a bone of it.
12:47: All the congregation of Israel shall keep it.
12:48: When a stranger shall live as a foreigner with you, and will keep the Passover to Yahweh, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one who is born in the land: but no uncircumcised person shall eat of it.
12:49: One law shall be to him who is born at home, and to the stranger who lives as a foreigner among you."
12:50: Thus did all the children of Israel. As Yahweh commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did.
12:51: It happened the same day, that Yahweh brought the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their hosts.

13:1: Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
13:2: "Sanctify to me all of the firstborn, whatever opens the womb among the children of Israel, both of man and of animal. It is mine."
13:3: Moses said to the people, "Remember this day, in which you came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand Yahweh brought you out from this place. No leavened bread shall be eaten.
13:4: This day you go forth in the month Abib.
13:5: It shall be, when Yahweh shall bring you into the land of the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Amorite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite, which he swore to your fathers to give you, a land flowing with milk and honey, that you shall keep this service in this month.
13:6: Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day shall be a feast to Yahweh.
13:7: Unleavened bread shall be eaten throughout the seven days; and no leavened bread shall be seen with you, neither shall there be yeast seen with you, in all your borders.
13:8: You shall tell your son in that day, saying, 'It is because of that which Yahweh did for me when I came forth out of Egypt.'
13:9: It shall be for a sign to you on your hand, and for a memorial between your eyes, that the law of Yahweh may be in your mouth; for with a strong hand Yahweh has brought you out of Egypt.
13:10: You shall therefore keep this ordinance in its season from year to year.
13:11: "It shall be, when Yahweh shall bring you into the land of the Canaanite, as he swore to you and to your fathers, and shall give it you,
13:12: that you shall set apart to Yahweh all that opens the womb, and every firstborn which you have that comes from an animal. The males shall be Yahweh's.
13:13: Every firstborn of a donkey you shall redeem with a lamb; and if you will not redeem it, then you shall break its neck; and you shall redeem all the firstborn of man among your sons.
13:14: It shall be, when your son asks you in time to come, saying, 'What is this?' that you shall tell him, 'By strength of hand Yahweh brought us out from Egypt, from the house of bondage;
13:15: and it happened, when Pharaoh would hardly let us go, that Yahweh killed all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of animal. Therefore I sacrifice to Yahweh all that opens the womb, being males; but all the firstborn of my sons I redeem.'
13:16: It shall be for a sign on your hand, and for symbols between your eyes: for by strength of hand Yahweh brought us forth out of Egypt."
13:17: It happened, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God didn't lead them by the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, "Lest perhaps the people change their minds when they see war, and they return to Egypt;"
13:18: but God led the people around by the way of the wilderness by the Red Sea; and the children of Israel went up armed out of the land of Egypt.
13:19: Moses took the bones of Joseph with him, for he had made the children of Israel swear, saying, "God will surely visit you, and you shall carry up my bones away from here with you."
13:20: They took their journey from Succoth, and encamped in Etham, in the edge of the wilderness.
13:21: Yahweh went before them by day in a pillar of cloud, to lead them on their way, and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light, that they might go by day and by night:
13:22: the pillar of cloud by day, and the pillar of fire by night, didn't depart from before the people.

14:1: Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
14:2: "Speak to the children of Israel, that they turn back and encamp before Pihahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, before Baal Zephon. You shall encamp opposite it by the sea.
14:3: Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel, 'They are entangled in the land. The wilderness has shut them in.'
14:4: I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and he will follow after them; and I will get honor over Pharaoh, and over all his host; and the Egyptians shall know that I am Yahweh." They did so.
14:5: It was told the king of Egypt that the people had fled; and the heart of Pharaoh and of his servants was changed towards the people, and they said, "What is this we have done, that we have let Israel go from serving us?"
14:6: He made ready his chariot, and took his army with him;
14:7: and he took six hundred chosen chariots, and all the chariots of Egypt, and captains over all of them.
14:8: Yahweh hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued after the children of Israel; for the children of Israel went out with a high hand.
14:9: The Egyptians pursued after them: all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, his horsemen, and his army; and overtook them encamping by the sea, beside Pihahiroth, before Baal Zephon.
14:10: When Pharaoh drew near, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and behold, the Egyptians were marching after them; and they were very afraid. The children of Israel cried out to Yahweh.
14:11: They said to Moses, "Because there were no graves in Egypt, have you taken us away to die in the wilderness? Why have you treated us this way, to bring us forth out of Egypt?
14:12: Isn't this the word that we spoke to you in Egypt, saying, 'Leave us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians?' For it were better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness."
14:13: Moses said to the people, "Don't be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of Yahweh, which he will work for you today: for the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you shall never see them again.
14:14: Yahweh will fight for you, and you shall be still."
14:15: Yahweh said to Moses, "Why do you cry to me? Speak to the children of Israel, that they go forward.
14:16: Lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go into the midst of the sea on dry ground.
14:17: I, behold, I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall go in after them: and I will get myself honor over Pharaoh, and over all his host, over his chariots, and over his horsemen.
14:18: The Egyptians shall know that I am Yahweh, when I have gotten myself honor over Pharaoh, over his chariots, and over his horsemen."
14:19: The angel of God, who went before the camp of Israel, moved and went behind them; and the pillar of cloud moved from before them, and stood behind them.
14:20: It came between the camp of Egypt and the camp of Israel; and there was the cloud and the darkness, yet gave it light by night: and the one didn't come near the other all the night.
14:21: Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and Yahweh caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all the night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.
14:22: 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.
14:23: The Egyptians pursued, and went in after them into the midst of the sea: all of Pharaoh's horses, his chariots, and his horsemen.
14:24: It happened in the morning watch, that Yahweh looked out on the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of cloud, and confused the Egyptian army.
14:25: He took off their chariot wheels, and they drove them heavily; so that the Egyptians said, "Let's flee from the face of Israel, for Yahweh fights for them against the Egyptians!"
14:26: Yahweh said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand over the sea, that the waters may come again on the Egyptians, on their chariots, and on their horsemen."
14:27: Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to its strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it. Yahweh overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea.
