Part nine of the life of Moses as told in Treasure Magazine. Moses parts the Red Sea as the Israelites escape the Egyptian army. Exodus chapter 14 verses 21-29 21 Moses held out his hand over the sea, and the Lord drove the sea back with a strong east wind. It blew all night and turned the sea into dry land.
The water was divided, 22 and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with walls of water on both sides. 23 The Egyptians pursued them and went after them into the sea with all their horses, chariots, and drivers. 24 Just before dawn the Lord looked down from the pillar of fire and cloud at the Egyptian army and threw them into a panic. 25 He made the wheels of their chariots get stuck, so that they moved with great difficulty. The Egyptians said, The Lord is fighting for the Israelites against us. Let's get out of here!
26 The Lord said to Moses, Hold out your hand over the sea, and the water will come back over the Egyptians and their chariots and drivers. 27 So Moses held out his hand over the sea, and at daybreak the water returned to its normal level.
The Egyptians tried to escape from the water, but the Lord threw them into the sea. 28 The water returned and covered the chariots, the drivers, and all the Egyptian army that had followed the Israelites into the sea; not one of them was left. 29 But the Israelites walked through the sea on dry ground, with walls of water on both sides.
