EX 13:17-22 YHWH Guides Israel Out of Egypt / Israel Keeps Joseph’s Promise

Scripture

When Pharaoh had let the people go, God didn’t lead them by the way of the land of the Philistines, although it was near; for God said, “Lest perhaps the people change their minds when they see war, and they return to Egypt.” 18 So God led the people around by the way of the wilderness, by the Red Sea; and the children of Israel went up armed out of the land of Egypt. 19 Moses took the bones of Joseph with him, for he had made the children of Israel swear, saying, “God will surely visit you, and you shall carry up my bones away from here with you.”

20 Israel took their journey from Succoth, and encamped in Etham, in the edge of the wilderness. 21 Yahweh went before them by day in a pillar of cloud, to lead them on their way, and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light, that they might go by day and by night. 22 The pillar of cloud by day, and the pillar of fire by night, did not depart from Israel.
