required: and they spoiled the Egyptians. : "And the children of Israel jourmored from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot that overe men, besides children. $ And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and herds, even very much cattle. § And they baked unleavened cakes t; the dough which they brought forth outs Egypt, for it was not leavened: bealso they were thrust out of Egypt, and caldsøttarry, neither had they prepartd for themselves any victual. 4. Now thes.journing of the children d Israel who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. 41 And it came to pass, at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the self-same day it came to pass, that all the hosts f the LoRD went out from the land of Egypt. 42 lt is a night to be much observed unto the LORD, for brin ing them out from the land of Egypt: §. is that night of the LoRD to be observed of all the tion of Israel in their generations. 437And the Lord said unto Moses and Alm, This is the ordinance of the passwer: there shall nostranger eat thereof: 4. But every man's servant that is bought for money, when thou hast cirGumcised him, then shall he eat thereof. 45 A foreigner, and an hired servant shall not eat thereof. 46 In one house shall it be eaten ; thou salt not carry forth aught of the flesh aload out of the house; neither shall ye bitakabone thereof. # All the congregation of Israel shall ketpit. 4 And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the passover to the L0AD, let all his males be circumtied, and then let him come near and kop it; and he shall be as one that is on in the land: for no uncircumcised Person shall eat thereof. 49 One haw shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that *Isleth among you. 50 Thus did all the children of Israel; * the LORD commanded Moses and Mol, so did they. * And it came to pass the self-same out the Loan did bring the children o out of the land of Egypt by their

This day came ye out in the month Abib. 5 *, And it shall be when tie Lon B shall bring thee into the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amonites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, which he sware unto thy fathers to give thce, a land flowing with milk and honey; that thou shalt keep this scrwice in this month. 6 Seven days shalt thou cat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day shall be a feast to the Low D. 7 Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days : and there shall no ieavencil bread be seen with thee, neither shall there be leaven seen with thee in ali thy quar

16 And it shall be for a token upon thinchand, and for frontlets between thine eyes: for by strength of hand the Lord brought us forth out of F.gypt. 17"| And it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God led them not through the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near, for God said, Lest perádventure the people relent when they see war, and they return to Egypt: 18 But God led the people about, through the way of the wilderness of the Red Sca: and the children of Israel went up harnessed out of the land of Egypt. 19 And Moses took the bones of Joseph with him : for he had straitly sworn the children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you ; and ye shall carry up my bones away hence with you. 20*. And they took their journey, from Succoth, and encamped in Etham, in the edge of the wilderness. 21 And the Lok D went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light: to go by day and night. 22 He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the !ople.

And they do so. 5 *. And it was told the king of Egypt that the people flood: aid the heart of Pharaoh and of his servants was turned against the people, and they said, VViny have we done this, that we have let Israel go from erving us? 6 And he made ready his chariot, and took his people with him : 7 And he took six hundred chosen chartots, and all tile chariots of Egypt, and captains over every one of them. 8 And the Lok p hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued after the children of Israel: and the children of Israel went out with an high hand. 9 But the Egyptians pursued ater them,

and his horsemen, and his army) and overtook them encamping by the sea, beside Pi—hahiroth, before Baal-zephon. 10 " And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and they were sore afraid; and the children of Israel cried out unto the LoR D. 11 And they said unto Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt 2 12 Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness. 13 Ms And Moses said unto the po Fear ye, not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lok D, which he will shew to you to-day: for the Egyptians, whom ye have seen to-day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. 14 The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace. 15 ' And the Lok D said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? Speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward: 16. But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea. 17 And I, behold, I will harden the locarts of the Egyptians, and they shall follow them : ...} will get me honour upon Pharach, and upon all his host, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen. 18 "I And the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lok D, when I have gotten me honour upon Pharaoh, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen. 19 || And the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel, removed, and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them : 20 And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these : so that the one came not near the other all the night. 21 And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the scal to go back by a strong cast wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. 22 And the children of Israel went into ulie midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. 23 And the Fgyptians pursued, and
(all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, I went in after them, to the midst of the sea,
titlethariots, and the horsemen, and all |
the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them. 29 But the children of Israel walked spondryland in the midst of the sea; and tewaters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. 30 Thus the LoRD saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians: old Israel saw the Egyptians déad upon the sea-shore. ol, And Israel saw that great work with the LORD did upon the Egyptians: *the people feared the LoRD, and be*d the Lord, and his servant Moses.

Tso sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the Lord, $nd Spake, saying, I will sing unto the loop, for he hath triumphed gloriously; he horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea. *The LoRD is my strength and song, *lheisbecome my salvation: he is my soland I willpreparehimanhabitation; w father's God, and I will exalt him. *The LORD is a man of war: the *D is his name. *Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath ost into the sea : his chosen captains *ate drowned in the Red sea. * The depths have covered them: to sank into the bottom as a stone.

up against thee: thou sentest forth thy wrath, othich consumed them as stubble. 8 And with the boist of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, the flood stood upright as an heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the Sea. 9 The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them. 10 Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covercd them : they sank as lead in the mighty waters. 11 Who is like unto thee, O Lon D, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders' 12 Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them. 13 Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people ...}} thou hast redeemed : thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation. 14 The people shall hear, and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina. 15 Then the dukes of Fdom shall be amazed ; the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take i`a upon them ; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away. 16 Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall | be as still as a stone; till thy book pass over, O Lord, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased. 17 Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance, in the place, O Lok D, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in ; in the Sanctuary, O Lord, which thy hands have established. 18 The LoRD shall reign for ever and eWer. 19 For the horse of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and the Lord brought again the waters of the sea upon them: but the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea. 20 " And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her, with timbrels, and with dances. 21 And Miriam answered them, sing ye to the LoRD, for he hath triumphed loriously ; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea. 22 So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water. 23 T And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah ; for they were bitter: therefore
| the name of it was called Marah.
66 The heofile murmur for bread: EXODUS.
24 And the o, murmured against Moses, ...R. at shall we drink? 25 And he cried unto the Lor D ; and the Lord shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them, 26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his com: o and keep all his statutes; I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lori that healeth thee. 27 | And they came to Elim, where overe twelve wells of water, and threescore and ten palm-trees : and they encamped there by the waters. CHAP. XVI. 2 The Israelites murmur for want of ... bread. 11 Quails are sent, 14 and manna. Ao they took their journey, from Elim, and all the congregation of the children of Israel came unto the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departing out of the land of Egypt. 2 And the §e congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness:
3 And the children of Israel said unto
them, Would to God we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh-pots, and when we did eat bread to the full : for ye have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger. 4 || Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you ; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, Woo. will walk in my law, or no. 5 And it shall come to pass, that on the sixth day they shall prepare that which they o; in ; and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily. 6 And Moses and Aaron said unto all the children of Israel, At even, then ye shall know that the LoRD hath brought you out from the land of Egypt: 7 And in the morning, then ye shall sce the glory of the Lord ; for that he heareth your murmurings against the LoRD : And what are we, that ye murmur against us? 8 And Moses said, This shall be when the LoRD shall, give you in the evening flesh to eat, and in the morning bread to the full ; for that the Lord heareth your murmurings which ye murmur against him: And what are we? your murmurings are not against us, but against the Lord,
Quails and manna are sent.
9 || And Moses spake unto Aaron, Say unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, Come near before the LoRD : for he hath heard your murmurings. 10 And it came to pass, as Aaron spake unto the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and behold, the glory of the Lord appeared in the cloud. 11 || And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, o have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel; Speak unto them, saying, At even ye shall eat flesh, and in the morning ye shall be filled with bread: and ye shall know that I am the LoRD your God. 13 And it came to pass, that at even the quails came up, and covered the camp : and in the morning the dew lay round about the host. 14 And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay a small round thing, as small as the hoar frost on the ground: 15 And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is mail: na: for they wist not what it was. And Moses said unto them, This is the bread which the Lorp hath given you to eat. 16 T This is the thing which the LoRD hath commanded, Gather of it every man according to his eating: an omer for every man according to the number of your persons, take ye every man for them which are in his tents. 17 And the children of Israel did so, and gathered, some more, some less. 18 And when they did mete it with an omer, he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack: they gathered every man according to his eating. 19 And Koes said, Let no man leave of it till the morning. 20 Notwithstanding, they hearkenedo unto Moses; but some of them left of it until the morning, and it bred worms, and stank : and Šiš. was wroth with them. 21 And they gathered it every morning; every man according to his ...i. and when the sun waxed hot, it melt 22 And it came to pass, that on th: sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for one man : all the rulers of the congregation came told Moses. - 33 Andhe said unto them, This is that which the Lord hath said, To-morro" is the rest of the holy sabbath, uno the Lond : bake that which ye will bake so day, and seethe that ye will seeth: ". that which remaineth over, lay up for?" to be kept until the morning; 24 And they laid it up till the mo"

kill us and our children and our cattle with thirst 2 4 And Moses cried unto the LoRD, saying, What shall I do unto this people? they be almost ready to stone me. 5 And the Lord said unto Moses, Go on before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Israel: and thy rod, wherewith thou smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go. 6 Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb ; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel. 7 And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah, because the chiding of the children of Israel, and because they tempted the Lord, saying, Is the LoRD among us, or not? 8. Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim. 9 And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek; to-morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand. 10. So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur, went up to the top of the hill. 11 And it came to pass, when Moses held o his hand, that Israel prevailed : and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. 12 But Moses’ hands overe heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon : and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. 13. And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. 14 And the Lord said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua : for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. 15 "I And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it JEHOVAH-nissi: 16 For he said, Because the Lord hath sworn that the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.
