Egypt this night, and will smite all the first-
born in the land of Egypt, both man and

the Lord's passover, who passed over the
houses of the children of Israel in Egypt,
when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered
our houses. And the people showed the
head and worshipped.

28 And the children of Israel went away,
and ^did as the Lord had commanded Moses
and Aaron, so did they.

29 IT 'And it came to pass, that at mid-
night ''the Lord smote all the first-born in
the land of Egypt, 'from the first-born of
Pharaoh that sat on his throne, unto the first-
born of the captive that was in the f dun-
geon ; and all the first-born of cattle.

30 And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he,

there was not a house where there was not
one dead.

The Israelites go out of Egypt.

14 11 'And it shall be when thy son asketh
thee fin time to come, saying, What is
this? that thou shalt say unto him, 'By
strength of hand the Lord brought us out
from Egypt, from the house of bondage :

15 And it came to pass, when Pharaoh
would hardly let us go, that *the Lord slew
all the first-born in the land of Egypt,
both the first-born of man, and the first-
born of beast : therefore I sacrifice to the
Lord all that openeth the matrix, being
males ; but all the first-born of my children
I redeem.

16 And it shall be for "a token upon thine
hand, and for frontlets between thine eyes:
for by strength of hand the Lord brought
us forth out of Egypt.

17 T And it came to pass, when Pharaoh
had let the people go, that God led them
not through the way of the land of the
Philistines, although that was near; for
God said. Lest peradventure the people
^repent when they see war, and ^they re-
turn to Egypt :

18 But God ^ledthe people about, through
the way of the Avilderness of the Red sea :
and the children of Israel went up |] har-
nessed out of the land of Egypt.

19 And Moses took the bones of Joseph
with him: for he had straitly sworn the
children of Israel, saying, ''God will surely
visit you; and ye shall carry up my bones
away hence with you.

20 IT And ''they took their journey from
Succoth, and encamped in Etham, in the
edge of the wilderness.

21 And "^the Lord went before them by
day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the
way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to
give them light : to go by day and night.

22 He took not away the pillar of the
cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night,
from before the people.


1 Godinstructeththe Israelites in their journey. 5 Pha-
raoh pursueth after them. 10 The Israelites murvmr.
13 Moses comforteth them. 15 God histructeth Moses.
19 The cloud rtmoveth behind the camp.- 21 The
Israelites pass through the Red sea, 23 which
drowneth the Egyptians.

AND the Lord spake unto Moses,

2 Speak unto the children of Israel, "that
they turn and encamp before '' Pi-hahiroth,
between ''Migdol and the sea, over against
Baal-zephon : before it shall ye encamp by
the sea.

3 For Pharaoh will say of the children of
Israel, ■'They are entangled in the land,
the wilderness hath shut them in.


Pharaoh pursueth after them.

4 And *I will harden Pharaoh's heart,
that he shall follow after them ; and I '"will
be honoured upon Pharaoh, and upon all
his host; ^that the Egyptians may know
that I am the Lord. And they did so.

5 IT And it was told the king of Egypt
that the people fled: and ''the heart of
Pharaoh and of his servants was turned
against the people, and they said, Why have
we done this, that we have let Israel go
from serving us ?

6 And he made ready his chariot, and
took his people with him :

7 And he took 'six hundred chosen cha-
riots, and all the chariots of Egypt, and
captains over every one of them.

8 And the Lord ''hardened the heart of
Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued
after the children of Israel : and ' the child-
ren of Israel went out with an high hand.

9 But the ■" Egyptians pursued after them
(all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, and
nis horsemen, and his army) and overtook
them encamping by the sea, beside Pi-ha-
hiroth, before Baal-zephon.

10 IF And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the
children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and
behold, the Egyptians marched after them ;
and they were sore afraid : and the children
of Israel "cried out unto the Lord.

11 "And they said unto Moses, Because
there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou
taken us away to die in the wilderness ?
Wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us,
to carry us forth out of Egypt ?

12 p/s not this the word that we did tell
thee in Egypt, saying. Let us alone, that
we may serve the Egyptians ? For it had
heen better for us to serve the Egyptians,
than that we should die in the wilderness.

13 IF And Moses said unto the people,
'.Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salva-
tion of the Lord, which he will shew to
you to-day : || for the Egyptians whom ye
have seen to-day, ye shall see them again no
more for ever.





14 -^The Lord shall fight
ye shall ^hold your peace.

15 IT And the Lord said unto Moses,
Wherefore criest thou unto me ? Speak unto
the children of Israel, that they go forward :

16 But tlift thou up thy rod, and stretch
out thiiie hand over the sea, and divide it :
and the children of Israel shall go on dry
ground through the midst of the sea.

17 And I, behold, I will "harden the
hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall fol-
low them : and I will ^'get me honour upon
Pharaoh, and upon all his host, upon his
chariots, and upon his horsemen.
