    (7-10) In that the LORD did these things, and let the rest of the world continue; indicates that it was a sign of the Great Deliverance and Salvation at the end of days: for Israel was to set as a sign for blessing and spiritual guidance to the world, up to that day; but they knew it not. (19-22) As it was with bringing Israel out of Egypt, so for us in the end time: God will save us by His Power!
