1 Locutus est autem Dominus ad Moysen dicens:
2 "Lo quere filiis Israel: Reversi castrametentur e regione Phihahiroth, quae est inter Magdolum et mare contra Beelsephon; in conspectu eius castra ponetis super mare.
3 Dicturusque est pharao super filiis Israel: "Errant in terra, conclusit eos desertum".
4 Et indurabo cor eius, ac persequetur eos, et glorificabor in pharaone et in omni exercitu eius; scientque Aegyptii quia ego sum Dominus" Feceruntque ita.
5 Et nuntiatum est regi Aegyptiorum quod fugisset populus; immutatumque est cor pharaonis et servorum eius super populo, et dixerunt: "Quid hoc fecimus, ut dimitteremus Israel, ne servirent nobis?"
6 Iunxit ergo currum et omnem populum suum assumpsit secum;
7 tulitque sescentos currus electos et quidquid in Aegypto curruum fuit et bellatores in singulis curribus.
8 Induravitque Dominus cor pharaonis regis Aegypti, et persecutus est filios Israel; at illi egressi erant in manu excelsa.
9 Cumque persequerentur Aegyptii vestigia praecedentium, reppererunt eos in castris super mare; omnes equi et currus pharaonis, equites et exercitus eius erant in Phihahiroth contra Beelsephon.
10 Cumque appropinquasset pharao, levantes filii Israel oculos viderunt Aegyptios post se et timuerunt valde clamaveruntque ad Dominum
11 et dixerunt ad Moysen: "Forsitan non erant sepulcra in Aegypto? Ideo tulisti nos, ut moreremur in solitudine. Quid hoc fecisti, ut educeres nos ex Aegypto?
12 Nonne iste est sermo, quem loquebamur ad te in Aegypto dicentes: Recede a nobis, ut serviamus Aegyptiis? Multo enim melius erat servire eis quam mori in solitudine "
13 Et ait Moyses ad populum: "Nolite timere; state et videte salutem Domini, quam facturus est vobis hodie; Aegyptios enim, quos nunc videtis, nequaquam ultra videbitis usque in sempiternum.
14 Dominus pugnabit pro vobis, et vos silebitis"
15 Dixitque Dominus ad Moysen: "Quid clamas ad me? Loquere filiis Israel, ut proficiscantur.
16 Tu autem eleva virgam tuam et extende manum tuam super mare et divide illud, ut gradiantur filii Israel in medio mari per siccum.
17 Ego autem indurabo cor Aegyptiorum, ut persequantur eos; et glorificabor in pharaone et in omni exercitu eius, in curribus et in equitibus illius.
18 Et scient Aegyptii quia ego sum Dominus, cum glorificatus fuero in pharaone, in curribus atque in equitibus eius"
19 Tollensque se angelus Dei, qui praecedebat castra Israel, abiit post eos; et cum eo pariter columna nubis, priora dimittens, post tergum.
20 Stetit inter castra Aegyptiorum et castra Israel; et erat nubes tenebrosa et illuminans noctem, ita ut ad se invicem toto noctis tempore accedere non valerent.
21 Cumque extendisset Moyses manum super mare, reppulit illud Dominus, flante vento vehementi et urente tota nocte, et vertit in siccum; divisaque est aqua.
22 Et ingressi sunt filii Israel per medium maris sicci; erat enim aqua quasi murus a dextra eorum et laeva.
23 Persequentesque Aegyptii ingressi sunt post eos, omnis equitatus pharaonis, currus eius et equites per medium maris.
24 Iamque advenerat vigilia matutina, et ecce respiciens Dominus super castra Aegyptiorum per columnam ignis et nubis perturbavit exercitum eorum;
25 et impedivit rotas curruum, ita ut difficile moverentur. Dixerunt ergo Aegyptii: "Fugiamus Israelem! Dominus enim pugnat pro eis contra nos"
26 Et ait Dominus ad Moysen: "Extende manum tuam super mare, ut revertantur aquae ad Aegyptios super currus et equites eorum"
27 Cumque extendisset Moyses manum contra mare, reversum est primo diluculo ad priorem locum; fugientibusque Aegyptiis occurrerunt aquae, et involvit eos Dominus in mediis fluctibus.
28 Reversaeque sunt aquae et operuerunt currus et equites cuncti exercitus pharaonis, qui sequentes ingressi fuerant mare; ne unus quidem superfuit ex eis.
29 Filii autem Israel perrexerunt per medium sicci maris, et aquae eis erant quasi pro muro a dextris et a sinistris.
30 Liberavitque Dominus in die illo Israel de manu Aegyptiorum. Et viderunt Aegyptios mortuos super litus maris
31 et manum magnam, quam exercuerat Dominus contra eos; timuitque populus Dominum et crediderunt Domino et Moysi servo eius.
King James Version
1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
2 Speak unto the children of Israel, that they turn and encamp before Pi-hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, over against Baal-zephon: before it shall ye encamp by the sea.
3 For Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel, They are entangled in the land, the wilderness hath shut them in.
4 And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, that he shall follow after them; and I will be honoured upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host; that the Egyptians may know that I am the LORD. And they did so.
5 ¶ And it was told the king of Egypt that the people fled: and the heart of Pharaoh and of his servants was turned against the people, and they said, Why have we done this, that we have let Israel go from serving us?
6 And he made ready his chariot, and took his people with him:
7 And he took six hundred chosen chariots, and all the chariots of Egypt, and captains over every one of them.
8 And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued after the children of Israel: and the children of Israel went out with an high hand.
9 But the Egyptians pursued after them, all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, and his horsemen, and his army, and overtook them encamping by the sea, beside Pi-hahiroth, before Baal-zephon.
10 ¶ And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted 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 Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? wherefore hast 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 to day, 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 Egyptians, and they shall follow them: and I will get me honour upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen.
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 east wind 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 said, 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.
