And when Pharaoh drew near, the children of Israel lifted their eyes, and behold, the Egyptians marched after them. So they were very afraid, and the children of Israel cried out to the Lord.
Then they said to Moses, “Because there were no graves in Egypt, have you taken us away to die in the wilderness? Why have you so dealt with us, to bring us up out of Egypt?
Is this not the word that we told you 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.”
And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever.
The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.”
Moses to the Israelites:
“Do not be afraid.
Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today.
Be firm and you will see the salvation of the Lord which He will accomplish for you today.
The Egyptians whom you see today you will never see again.
The Lord will fight for you; you only need to be still.
The Lord will fight for you; you only need to keep silent and remain calm.”
