Russell Stendal Teaches on Exodus Chapters 13-14 [Spanish]
Exodus 13 (JUB)
1 And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying,
2 Sanctify unto me all the firstborn, whatever opens the womb among the sons of Israel, both of man and of beast; for it is mine.
3 And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of slavery; for the Lord has brought you out of here with a strong hand; therefore, ye shall not eat with leaven.
4 This day ye came out in the month Abib.
5 And when the Lord shall have brought thee into the land of the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Amorite and the Hivite and the Jebusite, which he swore unto thy fathers to give thee, a land flowing with milk and honey, that thou shalt do this service in this month.
6 Thou shalt eat without leaven for seven days, and the seventh day shall be a feast unto the Lord.
7 Bread without leaven shall be eaten the seven days; and nothing leavened shall be seen with thee, neither shall there be any leaven in all thy borders.
8 And thou shalt tell thy son in that day, saying, This is done because of that which the Lord did unto me when he brought me out of Egypt.
9 And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thy hand and for a memorial before thine eyes, that the Lord’s law may be in thy mouth; for with a strong hand the Lord has brought thee out of Egypt.
10 Thou shalt, therefore, keep this ordinance in its season from year to year.
11 And it shall be when the Lord shall have brought thee into the land of the Canaanites, as he swore unto thee and to thy fathers, and shall have given it to thee,
12 that thou shalt set apart unto the Lord all that opens the womb and in the same manner every firstborn that opens the wombs of thy animals; the males shall be the Lord’s.
13 And every firstborn of an ass thou shalt ransom with a lamb; and if thou wilt not ransom it, then thou shalt cut off its head; and in the same manner thou shalt ransom all the human firstborn among thy sons.
14 And it shall be when thy son asks thee in time to come, saying, What is this? Thou shalt say unto him, With a strong hand the Lord brought us out of Egypt, from the house of slavery;
15 and it came to pass when Pharaoh was hardening himself to not let us go that the Lord slew all the firstborn in the land of Egypt from the human firstborn to the firstborn of the beast; therefore, I sacrifice to the Lord every male that opens the womb, and I ransom every firstborn of my sons.
16 And it shall be for a token upon thy hand, and for a memorial before thine eyes: That the Lord brought us out of Egypt with a strong hand.
17 And it came to pass when Pharaoh had let the people go that God did not lead them through the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, Lest peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt;
18 but God led the people round about through the way of the wilderness of the Red Sea. And the sons of Israel went up armed out of the land of Egypt.
19 And Moses also took the bones of Joseph with him, who had made the sons of Israel swear, saying, God will surely visit you; and ye shall carry up my bones away from here with you.
20 And they took their journey from Succoth and encamped in Etham in the edge of the wilderness.
21 And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead them in the way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light that they might walk by day and by night.
22 He never took away the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night from before the people.
Exodus 14 (JUB)
1 And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying,
2 Speak unto the sons of Israel that they turn and set up their camp before Pihahiroth between Migdol and the sea over against Baalzephon; before it shall ye set up camp by the sea.
3 For Pharaoh will say of the sons of Israel, They are entangled in the land; the wilderness has shut them in.
4 And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart that he shall follow after them; and I will be glorified in Pharaoh and in all his host; and the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord. And they did so.
5 And it was told the king of Egypt how the people fled; and the heart of Pharaoh and of his slaves was turned against the people, and they said, Why have we done this, that we have let Israel go from serving us?
6 And he made ready his chariot and took his people with him;
7 and he took six hundred chosen chariots and all the chariots of Egypt and the captains over them.
8 And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and he pursued after the sons of Israel, but the sons of Israel had already left with great power.
9 The Egyptians, nevertheless, pursued after them with all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, his horsemen, and all his army, and overtook them setting up camp by the sea beside Pihahiroth before Baalzephon.
10 And when Pharaoh drew near, the sons of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and they feared greatly, and the sons of Israel cried out unto the Lord.
11 And they said unto Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? Why hast thou dealt thus with us, to bring us forth out of Egypt?
12 Is this not what we told thee in Egypt, saying, Let us alone that we may serve the Egyptians? For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than that we should die in the wilderness.
13 And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still and see the saving health of the Lord, which he will bestow on you today; for the Egyptians whom ye have seen today, ye shall never see them again for ever.
14 The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall be still.
15 Then the Lord said unto Moses, Why criest thou unto me? Speak unto the sons of Israel that they go forward:
16 And lift up thy rod and stretch out thy hand over the sea and divide it; and the sons of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.
17 And behold, I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians that they shall follow them: and I will be glorified in Pharaoh and in all his host, in his chariots, and in his horsemen.
18 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord, when I have glorified myself in Pharaoh, in his chariots, and in his horsemen.
19 And the angel of God, who went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and likewise the pillar of 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 lit up the night unto Israel; and all that night the one side never came near the other.
21 And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.
22 Then the sons of Israel went into the 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 Egyptians pursued and went in after them to the midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh’s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen.
24 And it came to pass that in the morning watch the Lord looked at the camp of the Egyptians in the pillar of fire and of cloud and troubled the camp of the Egyptians
25 and took off their chariot wheels and overturned them grievously, so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of Israel; for the Lord fights for them against the Egyptians.
26 And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thy hand over the sea that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen.
27 And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned in its strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the Lord overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea.
28 And the waters returned, and covered the chariots 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 sons of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea; and the waters 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; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea shore.
31 And Israel saw that great work which the Lord did against the Egyptians; and the people feared the Lord and believed the Lord and his slave Moses.
