Wesley's Notes for Exodus 14:26


14:26 And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thy hand over the sea - And give a signal to the waters to close again, as before upon the word of command they had opened to the right and the left. He did so, and immediately the waters returned to their place, and overwhelmed all the host of the Egyptians. Pharaoh and his servants, that had hardened one another in sin, now fell together, and not one escaped. An ancient tradition saith, That Pharaoh's magicians Jannes and Jambres perished with the rest. Now God got him honour upon Pharaoh, a rebel to God, and a slave to his own barbarous passions; perfectly lost to humanity, virtue, and all true honour; here be lies buried in the deep, a perpetual monument of divine justice: here he went down to the pit, though he was the terror of the mighty in the land of the living.

    My memory, somewhat challenged, I freely admit, tells me I either read or heard that chariots and parts thereof have been found in the Red Sea. Any comment on that anybody?

    I am glad Moses understand God, what he was doing for his people. I no in the beginning he was afraid that why he ask God to let his brother come along with him people this day are just like Pharaoh refuse to do what the master say, I am glad someone higher than us that sees every thing and open the eyes of many who love him, I couldn't put the bible down, more I read it doing something to met

    Let every one who loves our Lord Jesus Christ, take heed to what happens in this chapter! The same heathen spirit of antichrist that turned the hearts and minds of the world under Nimrod against the knowledge of the truth and a life of faith and piety toward God and His Anointed; the same that was in the Egyptians and all of Israel's evil neighbors; is the same that works in the world to this day.
  • Cyril
    By any stretch of the imagination this is one of the greatest chapters in the bible. It was a battle between God and the enemy and God prevailed teaching man we can trust him when the situations seems totally lost and hope less. Good encouragement when we have our backs to the wall.

    verse 23... --- the Egyptians you see shall be no more;---------------- in life, one canfa be faced with any situation but if he/she is trusting the Lord, it shall come to pass and peace of the Lord will take over

    HalleluYah!!!! The same pillar, presence of YHWH, to the Egyptians (*world, satan, enemies...) seems dark, and yet for Israel, Our Abba Father's adopted
