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,
and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with the waters [like] a wall to them on their right and their left.
The Egyptians set out in pursuit-- all Pharaoh's horses, his chariots, and his horsemen-- and went into the sea after them.
Then during the morning watch, the LORD looked down on the Egyptian forces from the pillar of fire and cloud, and threw them into confusion.
He caused their chariot wheels to swerve and made them drive with difficulty. "Let's get away from Israel," the Egyptians said, "because the LORD is fighting for them against Egypt!"
Then the LORD said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand over the sea so that the waters may come back on the Egyptians, on their chariots and horsemen."
So Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and at daybreak the sea returned to its normal depth. While the Egyptians were trying to escape from it, the LORD overthrew them in the sea.
The waters came back and covered the chariots and horsemen, the entire army of Pharaoh, that had gone after them into the sea. None of them survived.
But the Israelites had walked through the sea on dry ground, with the waters [like] a wall to them on their right and their left.
That day the LORD saved Israel from the power of the Egyptians, and Israel saw the Egyptians dead on the seashore.
When Israel saw the great power that the LORD used against the Egyptians, the people feared the LORD and believed in Him and in His servant Moses.
