21 The Lord went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud(A) to lead them on their way during the day and in a pillar of fire to give them light at night, so that they could travel day or night. 22 The pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night never left its place in front of the people.

19 Then the angel of God,(A) who was going in front of the Israelite forces, moved and went behind them. The pillar of cloud moved from in front of them and stood behind them.(B) 20 It came between the Egyptian and Israelite forces. There was cloud and darkness, it lit up the night, and neither group came near the other all night long.

21 Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea. The Lord drove the sea back with a powerful east wind all that night and turned the sea into dry land. So the waters were divided,(C) 22 and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with the waters like a wall to them on their right and their left.(D)

23 The Egyptians set out in pursuit—all Pharaoh’s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen—and went into the sea after them. 24 During the morning watch, the Lord looked down at the Egyptian forces from the pillar of fire(E) and cloud, and threw the Egyptian forces into confusion. 25 He caused their chariot wheels to swerve[a][b] and made them drive[c] with difficulty. “Let’s get away from Israel,” the Egyptians said, “because the Lord is fighting for them against Egypt!”

and the brightness of the moon will not shine on you.

You will flee by my mountain valley,[a] for the valley of the mountains will extend to Azal. You will flee as you fled[b] from the earthquake in the days of King Uzziah of Judah.(A) Then the Lord my God will come and all the holy ones(B) with him.[c](C)

On that day there will be no light; the sunlight and moonlight will diminish.[d][e](D) It will be a unique day known only to the Lord,(E) without day or night, but there will be light at evening.

On that day living water will flow out from Jerusalem,(F) half of it toward the eastern sea[f] and the other half toward the western sea,[g] in summer and winter alike.
