EX 14:1-9 YHWH’s Plan to Get Glory Over Pharaoh / Pharaoh Pursues Israel


Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 2 “Speak to the children of Israel, that they turn back and encamp before Pihahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, before Baal Zephon. You shall encamp opposite of it by the sea. 3 Pharaoh will say, ‘They are entangled in the land. The wilderness has shut them in.’ 4 Then I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and he will follow after you; and I will get honor over Pharaoh and over all his army. The Egyptians shall know that I am Yahweh.” Israel did as Yahweh commanded.

5 Pharaoh was told that the people of Israel had fled, then the heart of Pharaoh and of his servants was changed toward the people of Israel. They said, “What is this we have done, we have let Israel go from serving us?” 6 So Pharaoh prepared his chariot and took his army with him. 7 He took his six hundred chosen chariots, along with all the other chariots of Egypt, with captains over all of them. 8 Yahweh hardened the heart of Pharaoh, so Pharaoh pursued after Israel; for the children of Israel went out of Egypt with a high hand. 9 The Egyptians pursued; all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, his horsemen, and his army overtook Israel encamping by the sea, beside Pihahiroth, before Baal Zephon.
