10 When Pharaoh drew near, the people of Israel lifted up their eyes, and behold, the Egyptians were marching after them, and they feared greatly. And the people of Israel (A)cried out to the Lord. 11 They (B)said to Moses, “Is it because there are no graves in Egypt that you have taken us away to die in the wilderness? What have you done to us in bringing us out of Egypt? 12 Is not this what (C)we said to you in Egypt: ‘Leave us alone that we may serve the Egyptians’? For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the wilderness.” 13 And Moses said to the people, (D)“Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will work for you today. For (E)the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall never see again. 14 (F)The Lord will fight for you, and you have only (G)to be silent.”

21 Then Moses (A)stretched out his hand over the sea, and the Lord drove the sea back by (B)a strong east wind all night and (C)made the sea dry land, and the waters were (D)divided. 22 And (E)the people of Israel went into the midst of the sea on dry ground, the waters being (F)a wall to them on their right hand and on their left. 23 The Egyptians pursued and went in after them into the midst of the sea, all Pharaoh's horses, his chariots, and his horsemen. 24 And in the morning watch the Lord in the pillar of fire and of cloud looked down on the Egyptian forces and threw the Egyptian forces into a panic, 25 clogging[a] their chariot wheels so that they drove heavily. And the Egyptians said, “Let us flee from before Israel, for the (G)Lord fights for them against the Egyptians.”
