(22) The Red Sea

God harden Pharaoh's heart again
and Pharaoh regretted that he let the Israelites go.
Pharaoh and his officials changed their minds
to go after the Israelites and bring them back.
As pharaoh and his army approached,
the Israelites saw them in the distance,
coming toward them.
People began to panic,
and they cried out to God for help.
They even turned against Moses,
"Why did you bring us out here to die?"
But Moses told them, boldly, not to worry 
and see how God rescues them.
God instructed Moses to put his staff over the sea.
When Moses held his staff over the water,
a strong east wind blew and
the path opened up before them through the sea.
and all the Israelites walked through on dry land.
Pharaoh and his army, too, went after the Israelites
through the opened up sea.
but before they could make it through the sea,
God instructed Moses to raise his hands to close the sea upon them.
The water covered all the entire army of Pharaoh.
When the Israelites saw the mighty power that God displayed,
they feared God and put their faith in God
and his servant, their leader, Moses.
