Exodus 14


1  And the LORD3068 spoke1696 unto413 Moses,4872 saying,559

2  Speak1696 unto413 the children1121 of Israel,3478 that they turn7725 and encamp2583 before6440 Pi-hahiroth,6367 between996 Migdol4024 and the sea,3220 over against6440 Baal-zephon:1189 before5226 it shall ye encamp2583 by5921 the sea.3220

3  For Pharaoh6547 will say559 of the children1121 of Israel,3478 They1992 are entangled943 in the land,776 the wilderness4057 hath shut them in.5462 5921

4  And I will harden2388 853 Pharaoh's6547 heart,3820 that he shall follow7291 after310 them; and I will be honored3513 upon Pharaoh,6547 and upon all3605 his host;2428 that the Egyptians4714 may know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD.3068 And they did6213 so.3651

5  And it was told5046 the king4428 of Egypt4714 that3588 the people5971 fled:1272 and the heart3824 of Pharaoh6547 and of his servants5650 was turned2015 against413 the people,5971 and they said,559 Why4100 have we done6213 this,2063 that3588 we have let 853 Israel3478 go7971 from serving4480 5647 us?

6  And he made ready631 853 his chariot,7393 and took3947 his people5971 with5973 him:

7  And he took3947 six8337 hundred3967 chosen977 chariots,7393 and all3605 the chariots7393 of Egypt,4714 and captains7991 over5921 every one3605 of them.

8  And the LORD3068 hardened2388 853 the heart3820 of Pharaoh6547 king4428 of Egypt,4714 and he pursued7291 after310 the children1121 of Israel:3478 and the children1121 of Israel3478 went out3318 with a high7311 hand.3027

9  But the Egyptians4714 pursued7291 after310 them, all3605 the horses5483 and chariots7393 of Pharaoh,6547 and his horsemen,6571 and his army,2428 and overtook5381 them encamping2583 by5921 the sea,3220 beside5921 Pi-hahiroth,6367 before6440 Baal-zephon.1189

10  And when Pharaoh6547 drew nigh,7126 the children1121 of Israel3478 lifted up5375 853 their eyes,5869 and, behold,2009 the Egyptians4714 marched5265 after310 them; and they were sore3966 afraid:3372 and the children1121 of Israel3478 cried out6817 unto413 the LORD.3068

11  And they said559 unto413 Moses,4872 Because4480 1097 there were no369 graves6913 in Egypt,4714 hast thou taken us away3947 to die4191 in the wilderness?4057 wherefore4100 hast thou dealt6213 thus2063 with us, to carry us forth3318 out of Egypt?4480 4714

12  Is not3808 this2088 the word1697 that834 we did tell1696 413 thee in Egypt,4714 saying,559 Let us alone,2308 4480 that we may serve5647 853 the Egyptians?4714 For3588 it had been better2896 for us to serve5647 853 the Egyptians,4714 than that we should die4480 4191 in the wilderness.4057

13  And Moses4872 said559 unto413 the people,5971 Fear3372 ye not,408 stand still,3320 and see7200 853 the salvation3444 of the LORD,3068 which834 he will show6213 to you today:3117 for3588 853 the Egyptians4714 whom834 ye have seen7200 today,3117 ye shall see7200 them again5750 no3808 more3254 forever.5921 5769

14  The LORD3068 shall fight3898 for you, and ye859 shall hold your peace.2790

15  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 Moses,4872 Wherefore4100 criest6817 thou unto413 me? speak1696 unto413 the children1121 of Israel,3478 that they go forward:5265

16  But lift thou up7311 859 853 thy rod,4294 and stretch out5186 853 thine hand3027 over5921 the sea,3220 and divide1234 it: and the children1121 of Israel3478 shall go935 on dry3004 ground through the midst8432 of the sea.3220

17  And I,589 behold,2009 I will harden2388 853 the hearts3820 of the Egyptians,4714 and they shall follow935 310 them: and I will get me honor3513 upon Pharaoh,6547 and upon all3605 his host,2428 upon his chariots,7393 and upon his horsemen.6571

18  And the Egyptians4714 shall know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD,3068 when I have gotten me honor3513 upon Pharaoh,6547 upon his chariots,7393 and upon his horsemen.6571

19  And the angel4397 of God,430 which went1980 before6440 the camp4264 of Israel,3478 removed5265 and went1980 behind4480 310 them; and the pillar5982 of the cloud6051 went5265 from before their face,4480 6440 and stood5975 behind4480 310 them:

20  And it came935 between996 the camp4264 of the Egyptians4714 and the camp4264 of Israel;3478 and it was1961 a cloud6051 and darkness2822 to them, but it gave light215 853 by night3915 to these: so that the one2088 came not near7126 3808 the other2088 all3605 the night.3915

21  And Moses4872 stretched out5186 853 his hand3027 over5921 the sea;3220 and the LORD3068 caused 853 the sea3220 to go1980 back by a strong5794 east6921 wind7307 all3605 that night,3915 and made7760 853 the sea3220 dry2724 land, and the waters4325 were divided.1234

22  And the children1121 of Israel3478 went935 into the midst8432 of the sea3220 upon the dry3004 ground: and the waters4325 were a wall2346 unto them on their right hand,4480 3225 and on their left.4480 8040

23  And the Egyptians4714 pursued,7291 and went in935 after310 them to413 the midst8432 of the sea,3220 even all3605 Pharaoh's6547 horses,5483 his chariots,7393 and his horsemen.6571

24  And it came to pass,1961 that in the morning1242 watch821 the LORD3068 looked8259 unto413 the host4264 of the Egyptians4714 through the pillar5982 of fire784 and of the cloud,6051 and troubled2000 853 the host4264 of the Egyptians,4714

25  And took off5493 853 their chariot4818 wheels,212 that they drove5090 them heavily:3517 so that the Egyptians4714 said,559 Let us flee5127 from the face4480 6440 of Israel;3478 for3588 the LORD3068 fighteth3898 for them against the Egyptians.4714

26  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 Moses,4872 Stretch out5186 853 thine hand3027 over5921 the sea,3220 that the waters4325 may come again7725 upon5921 the Egyptians,4714 upon5921 their chariots,7393 and upon5921 their horsemen.6571

27  And Moses4872 stretched forth5186 853 his hand3027 over5921 the sea,3220 and the sea3220 returned7725 to his strength386 when the morning1242 appeared;6437 and the Egyptians4714 fled5127 against7125 it; and the LORD3068 overthrew5287 853 the Egyptians4714 in the midst8432 of the sea.3220

28  And the waters4325 returned,7725 and covered3680 853 the chariots,7393 and the horsemen,6571 and all3605 the host2428 of Pharaoh6547 that came935 into the sea3220 after310 them; there remained7604 not3808 so much as5704 one259 of them.

29  But the children1121 of Israel3478 walked1980 upon dry3004 land in the midst8432 of the sea;3220 and the waters4325 were a wall2346 unto them on their right hand,4480 3225 and on their left.4480 8040

30  Thus the LORD3068 saved3467 853 Israel3478 that1931 day3117 out of the hand4480 3027 of the Egyptians;4714 and Israel3478 saw7200 853 the Egyptians4714 dead4191 upon5921 the sea3220 shore.8193

31  And Israel3478 saw7200 853 that great1419 work3027 which834 the LORD3068 did6213 upon the Egyptians:4714 and the people5971 feared3372 853 the LORD,3068 and believed539 the LORD,3068 and his servant5650 Moses.4872


1 καὶ ἐλάλησεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν λέγων

2 λάλησον τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ καὶ ἀποστρέψαντες στρατοπεδευσάτωσαν ἀπέναντι τῆς ἐπαύλεως ἀνὰ μέσον Μαγδώλου καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τῆς θαλάσσης ἐξ ἐναντίας Βεελσεπφων ἐνώπιον αὐτῶν στρατοπεδεύσεις ἐπὶ τῆς θαλάσσης

3 καὶ ἐρεῖ Φαραω τῷ λαῷ αὐτοῦ οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ πλανῶνται οὗτοι ἐν τῇ γῇ συγκέκλεικεν γὰρ αὐτοὺς ἡ ἔρημος

4 ἐγὼ δὲ σκληρυνῶ τὴν καρδίαν Φαραω καὶ καταδιώξεται ὀπίσω αὐτῶν καὶ ἐνδοξασθήσομαι ἐν Φαραω καὶ ἐν πάσῃ τῇ στρατιᾷ αὐτοῦ καὶ γνώσονται πάντες οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι ὅτι ἐγώ εἰμι κύριος καὶ ἐποίησαν οὕτως

5 καὶ ἀνηγγέλη τῷ βασιλεῖ τῶν Αἰγυπτίων ὅτι πέφευγεν ὁ λαός καὶ μετεστράφη ἡ καρδία Φαραω καὶ τῶν θεραπόντων αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὸν λαόν καὶ εἶπαν τί τοῦτο ἐποιήσαμεν τοῦ ἐξαποστεῖλαι τοὺς υἱοὺς Ισραηλ τοῦ μὴ δουλεύειν ἡμῖν

6 ἔζευξεν οὖν Φαραω τὰ ἅρματα αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντα τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ συναπήγαγεν μεθ᾽ ἑαυτοῦ

7 καὶ λαβὼν ἑξακόσια ἅρματα ἐκλεκτὰ καὶ πᾶσαν τὴν ἵππον τῶν Αἰγυπτίων καὶ τριστάτας ἐπὶ πάντων

8 καὶ ἐσκλήρυνεν κύριος τὴν καρδίαν Φαραω βασιλέως Αἰγύπτου καὶ τῶν θεραπόντων αὐτοῦ καὶ κατεδίωξεν ὀπίσω τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ οἱ δὲ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ ἐξεπορεύοντο ἐν χειρὶ ὑψηλῇ

9 καὶ κατεδίωξαν οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι ὀπίσω αὐτῶν καὶ εὕροσαν αὐτοὺς παρεμβεβληκότας παρὰ τὴν θάλασσαν καὶ πᾶσα ἡ ἵππος καὶ τὰ ἅρματα Φαραω καὶ οἱ ἱππεῖς καὶ ἡ στρατιὰ αὐτοῦ ἀπέναντι τῆς ἐπαύλεως ἐξ ἐναντίας Βεελσεπφων

10 καὶ Φαραω προσῆγεν καὶ ἀναβλέψαντες οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς ὁρῶσιν καὶ οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι ἐστρατοπέδευσαν ὀπίσω αὐτῶν καὶ ἐφοβήθησαν σφόδρα ἀνεβόησαν δὲ οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ πρὸς κύριον

11 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς Μωυσῆν παρὰ τὸ μὴ ὑπάρχειν μνήματα ἐν γῇ Αἰγύπτῳ ἐξήγαγες ἡμᾶς θανατῶσαι ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ τί τοῦτο ἐποίησας ἡμῖν ἐξαγαγὼν ἐξ Αἰγύπτου

12 οὐ τοῦτο ἦν τὸ ῥῆμα ὃ ἐλαλήσαμεν πρὸς σὲ ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ λέγοντες πάρες ἡμᾶς ὅπως δουλεύσωμεν τοῖς Αἰγυπτίοις κρεῖσσον γὰρ ἡμᾶς δουλεύειν τοῖς Αἰγυπτίοις ἢ ἀποθανεῖν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ ταύτῃ

13 εἶπεν δὲ Μωυσῆς πρὸς τὸν λαόν θαρσεῖτε στῆτε καὶ ὁρᾶτε τὴν σωτηρίαν τὴν παρὰ τοῦ θεοῦ ἣν ποιήσει ἡμῖν σήμερον ὃν τρόπον γὰρ ἑωράκατε τοὺς Αἰγυπτίους σήμερον οὐ προσθήσεσθε ἔτι ἰδεῖν αὐτοὺς εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα χρόνον

14 κύριος πολεμήσει περὶ ὑμῶν καὶ ὑμεῖς σιγήσετε

15 εἶπεν δὲ κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν τί βοᾷς πρός με λάλησον τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ καὶ ἀναζευξάτωσαν

16 καὶ σὺ ἔπαρον τῇ ῥάβδῳ σου καὶ ἔκτεινον τὴν χεῖρά σου ἐπὶ τὴν θάλασσαν καὶ ῥῆξον αὐτήν καὶ εἰσελθάτωσαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ εἰς μέσον τῆς θαλάσσης κατὰ τὸ ξηρόν

17 καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ σκληρυνῶ τὴν καρδίαν Φαραω καὶ τῶν Αἰγυπτίων πάντων καὶ εἰσελεύσονται ὀπίσω αὐτῶν καὶ ἐνδοξασθήσομαι ἐν Φαραω καὶ ἐν πάσῃ τῇ στρατιᾷ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐν τοῖς ἅρμασιν καὶ ἐν τοῖς ἵπποις αὐτοῦ

18 καὶ γνώσονται πάντες οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι ὅτι ἐγώ εἰμι κύριος ἐνδοξαζομένου μου ἐν Φαραω καὶ ἐν τοῖς ἅρμασιν καὶ ἵπποις αὐτοῦ

19 ἐξῆρεν δὲ ὁ ἄγγελος τοῦ θεοῦ ὁ προπορευόμενος τῆς παρεμβολῆς τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ καὶ ἐπορεύθη ἐκ τῶν ὄπισθεν ἐξῆρεν δὲ καὶ ὁ στῦλος τῆς νεφέλης ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτῶν καὶ ἔστη ἐκ τῶν ὀπίσω αὐτῶν

20 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ἀνὰ μέσον τῆς παρεμβολῆς τῶν Αἰγυπτίων καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τῆς παρεμβολῆς Ισραηλ καὶ ἔστη καὶ ἐγένετο σκότος καὶ γνόφος καὶ διῆλθεν ἡ νύξ καὶ οὐ συνέμιξαν ἀλλήλοις ὅλην τὴν νύκτα

21 ἐξέτεινεν δὲ Μωυσῆς τὴν χεῖρα ἐπὶ τὴν θάλασσαν καὶ ὑπήγαγεν κύριος τὴν θάλασσαν ἐν ἀνέμῳ νότῳ βιαίῳ ὅλην τὴν νύκτα καὶ ἐποίησεν τὴν θάλασσαν ξηράν καὶ ἐσχίσθη τὸ ὕδωρ

22 καὶ εἰσῆλθον οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ εἰς μέσον τῆς θαλάσσης κατὰ τὸ ξηρόν καὶ τὸ ὕδωρ αὐτοῖς τεῖχος ἐκ δεξιῶν καὶ τεῖχος ἐξ εὐωνύμων

23 κατεδίωξαν δὲ οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι καὶ εἰσῆλθον ὀπίσω αὐτῶν πᾶσα ἡ ἵππος Φαραω καὶ τὰ ἅρματα καὶ οἱ ἀναβάται εἰς μέσον τῆς θαλάσσης

24 ἐγενήθη δὲ ἐν τῇ φυλακῇ τῇ ἑωθινῇ καὶ ἐπέβλεψεν κύριος ἐπὶ τὴν παρεμβολὴν τῶν Αἰγυπτίων ἐν στύλῳ πυρὸς καὶ νεφέλης καὶ συνετάραξεν τὴν παρεμβολὴν τῶν Αἰγυπτίων

25 καὶ συνέδησεν τοὺς ἄξονας τῶν ἁρμάτων αὐτῶν καὶ ἤγαγεν αὐτοὺς μετὰ βίας καὶ εἶπαν οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι φύγωμεν ἀπὸ προσώπου Ισραηλ ὁ γὰρ κύριος πολεμεῖ περὶ αὐτῶν τοὺς Αἰγυπτίους

26 εἶπεν δὲ κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν ἔκτεινον τὴν χεῖρά σου ἐπὶ τὴν θάλασσαν καὶ ἀποκαταστήτω τὸ ὕδωρ καὶ ἐπικαλυψάτω τοὺς Αἰγυπτίους ἐπί τε τὰ ἅρματα καὶ τοὺς ἀναβάτας

27 ἐξέτεινεν δὲ Μωυσῆς τὴν χεῖρα ἐπὶ τὴν θάλασσαν καὶ ἀπεκατέστη τὸ ὕδωρ πρὸς ἡμέραν ἐπὶ χώρας οἱ δὲ Αἰγύπτιοι ἔφυγον ὑπὸ τὸ ὕδωρ καὶ ἐξετίναξεν κύριος τοὺς Αἰγυπτίους μέσον τῆς θαλάσσης

28 καὶ ἐπαναστραφὲν τὸ ὕδωρ ἐκάλυψεν τὰ ἅρματα καὶ τοὺς ἀναβάτας καὶ πᾶσαν τὴν δύναμιν Φαραω τοὺς εἰσπεπορευμένους ὀπίσω αὐτῶν εἰς τὴν θάλασσαν καὶ οὐ κατελείφθη ἐξ αὐτῶν οὐδὲ εἷς

29 οἱ δὲ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ ἐπορεύθησαν διὰ ξηρᾶς ἐν μέσῳ τῆς θαλάσσης τὸ δὲ ὕδωρ αὐτοῖς τεῖχος ἐκ δεξιῶν καὶ τεῖχος ἐξ εὐωνύμων

30 καὶ ἐρρύσατο κύριος τὸν Ισραηλ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ἐκ χειρὸς τῶν Αἰγυπτίων καὶ εἶδεν Ισραηλ τοὺς Αἰγυπτίους τεθνηκότας παρὰ τὸ χεῖλος τῆς θαλάσσης

31 εἶδεν δὲ Ισραηλ τὴν χεῖρα τὴν μεγάλην ἃ ἐποίησεν κύριος τοῖς Αἰγυπτίοις ἐφοβήθη δὲ ὁ λαὸς τὸν κύριον καὶ ἐπίστευσαν τῷ θεῷ καὶ Μωυσῇ τῷ θεράποντι αὐτοῦ

1 Locutus est autem Dominus ad Moysen, dicens:

2 Loquere filiis Israël: Reversi castrametentur e regione Phihahiroth, quæ est inter Magdalum et mare contra Beelsephon: in conspectu ejus castra ponetis super mare.

3 Dicturusque est Pharao super filiis Israël: Coarctati sunt in terra; conclusit eos desertum.

4 Et indurabo cor ejus, ac persequetur vos: et glorificabor in Pharaone, et in omni exercitu ejus; scientque Ægyptii quia ego sum Dominus. Feceruntque ita.

5 Et nuntiatum est regi Ægyptiorum quod fugisset populus: immutatumque est cor Pharaonis et servorum ejus super populo, et dixerunt: Quid voluimus facere ut dimitteremus Israël, ne serviret nobis?

6 Junxit ergo currum, et omnem populum suum assumpsit secum.

7 Tulitque sexcentos currus electos, et quidquid in Ægypto curruum fuit: et duces totius exercitus.

8 Induravitque Dominus cor Pharaonis regis Ægypti, et persecutus est filios Israël: at illi egressi sunt in manu excelsa.

9 Cumque persequerentur Ægyptii vestigia præcedentium, repererunt eos in castris super mare: omnis equitatus et currus Pharaonis, et universus exercitus, erant in Phihahiroth contra Beelsephon.

10 Cumque appropinquasset Pharao, levantes filii Israël oculos, viderunt Ægyptios post se, et timuerunt valde: clamaveruntque ad Dominum,

11 et dixerunt ad Moysen: Forsitan non erant sepulchra in Ægypto, ideo tulisti nos ut moreremur in solitudine: quid hoc facere voluisti, ut educeres nos ex Ægypto?

12 nonne iste est sermo, quem loquebamur ad te in Ægypto, dicentes: Recede a nobis, ut serviamus Ægyptiis? multo enim melius erat servire eis, quam mori in solitudine.

13 Et ait Moyses ad populum: Nolite timere: state, et videte magnalia Domini quæ facturus est hodie: Ægyptios enim, quos nunc videtis, nequaquam ultra videbitis usque in sempiternum.

14 Dominus pugnabit pro vobis, et vos tacebitis.

15 Dixitque Dominus ad Moysen: Quid clamas ad me? loquere filiis Israël ut proficiscantur.

16 Tu autem eleva virgam tuam, et extende manum tuam super mare, et divide illud: ut gradiantur filii Israël in medio mari per siccum.

17 Ego autem indurabo cor Ægyptiorum ut persequantur vos: et glorificabor in Pharaone, et in omni exercitu ejus, et in curribus et in equitibus illius.

18 Et scient Ægyptii quia ego sum Dominus cum glorificatus fuero in Pharaone, et in curribus atque in equitibus ejus.

19 Tollensque se angelus Dei, qui præcedebat castra Israël, abiit post eos: et cum eo pariter columna nubis, priora dimittens, post tergum

20 stetit, inter castra Ægyptiorum et castra Israël: 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, abstulit illud Dominus flante vento vehementi et urente tota nocte, et vertit in siccum: divisaque est aqua.

22 Et ingressi sunt filii Israël per medium sicci maris: erat enim aqua quasi murus a dextra eorum et læva.

23 Persequentesque Ægyptii ingressi sunt post eos, et omnis equitatus Pharaonis, currus ejus et equites per medium maris.

24 Jamque advenerat vigilia matutina, et ecce respiciens Dominus super castra Ægyptiorum per columnam ignis et nubis, interfecit exercitum eorum,

25 et subvertit rotas curruum, ferebanturque in profundum. Dixerunt ergo Ægyptii: Fugiamus Israëlem: Dominus enim pugnat pro eis contra nos.

26 Et ait Dominus ad Moysen: Extende manum tuam super mare, ut revertantur aquæ ad Ægyptios super currus et equites eorum.

27 Cumque extendisset Moyses manum contra mare, reversum est primo diluculo ad priorem locum: fugientibusque Ægyptiis occurrerunt aquæ, et involvit eos Dominus in mediis fluctibus.

28 Reversæque sunt aquæ, et operuerunt currus et equites cuncti exercitus Pharaonis, qui sequentes ingressi fuerant mare: nec unus quidem superfuit ex eis.

29 Filii autem Israël perrexerunt per medium sicci maris, et aquæ eis erant quasi pro muro a dextris et a sinistris:

30 liberavitque Dominus in die illa Israël de manu Ægyptiorum.

31 Et viderunt Ægyptios mortuos super littus maris, et manum magnam quam exercuerat Dominus contra eos: timuitque populus Dominum, et crediderunt Domino, et Moysi servo ejus.
