10 And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the Children of Israel lift 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 Möses, Because there were no Graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the Wilderness? Wherefore haft thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt?

12 Is not this the Word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians ? For it had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the Wilderness.

13 And Moses said unto the People, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the Salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you To-day : for the Egyptians whom ye have seen Today, ye shall see them again no more for ever.

14 The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your Peace.

15 And the LORD said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? Speak unto the Children of Israel, that they go FORWARD.

16 But LIFT THOU up thy Rod, and stretch out thine 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 Egyp: tians, and they thall follow them, and I will get me Honour upon Pharaoh, and upon all his Host, upon his Chariots, and upon his Horsemen,

18 And

18 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I have gotten me Honour upon Pharaoh, upon his Chariots, and upon his Horsemen.

19 And the ANGEL of God which went before the Camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the Pillar of the Cloud went from before their Face, and stood behind them.

20 And it came between the Camp of the Egyptians, and the Camp of Israel, and it was a Cloud and DARKNESS to them, but it gave Light by Night to these : so that the one came not near the other all the Night.

21 And Moses stretched out his Hand over the Sea, and the LORD caused the Sea to GO BACK by a strong Eastwind all that Night, and made the SEA DRY LAND, and the Waters were divided.

22 And the Children of Israel went into the midst of the Sea upon the Dry Ground : and the Waters were a Wall unto them on their Right Hand, and on their Left.

23 And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them, to the midst of the Sea, even all Pharaoh's Horses, his Chariots, and his Horsemen.

24 And it came to pass, that in the Morning-watch, the Lord looked unto the Host of the Egyptians, through the Pillar of Fire and of the Cloud, and TROUBLED the Host of the Egyptians,

25 And took off their Chariot-wheels, that they DRAVE them HEAVILY: so that the Egyptians faid, Let us Flee from the Face of Israel ; for the LORD FIGHTETH for them against the Egyptians.

26 And the LORD said unto Moses, STRETCH out thine Hand over the Sea, that the Waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their Chariots, and upon their Horsemen.

27 And Moses STRETCHED forth his Hand over the Sea, and the SEA RETURNED to his STRENGTH when the Morning appeared, and the Egyptians fled against it: and the LORD overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the Sea.

28 And the Waters returned and covered the Chariots, and the Horsemen, and all the Host of Pharaoh that came into the Sea after them : there remained not so much as one of them.

29 But the Children of Israel walked upon dry Land in the midst of the Sea : and the Waters were a Wall unto them on their Right Hand and on their Left.

30 Thus the LORD SAVED Israel that Day out of the Hand of the Egyptians : and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the Sea-shore.

31 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.

21 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.

22 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.

23 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.

24 And the People MURMURED against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?

25 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,

26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken unto 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,
