14:13 Fear not. At the crucial point of Israel’s deliverance they must see that their salvation is entirely God’s work. His judgments on Egypt, His hardening of Pharaoh’s heart, His leading Israel to this hopeless impasse, pinned between Pharaoh’s chariots and the sea—all prepare for the climactic display of His saving power. The Lord will fight for them; they need only be still. He will gain the glory (14:18).
