Exodus 14 is a pivotal chapter in the book of Exodus, as it marks the moment when the Israelites are finally freed from their bondage in Egypt. The chapter begins with God instructing Moses to tell the Israelites to turn and camp by the sea, and to be ready to leave in the morning. Moses then goes to Pharaoh and tells him that the Lord has commanded the Israelites to leave Egypt. Pharaoh, however, refuses to let them go and instead sends his army after them.
The Israelites are terrified and cry out to God for help. God then tells Moses to stretch out his hand over the sea and the waters will part, allowing the Israelites to pass through on dry land. Moses does as he is told and the waters part, allowing the Israelites to pass through. The Egyptians, however, follow them and are soon caught in the middle of the sea. God then sends a strong east wind which causes the waters to come back together, drowning the Egyptians.
The Israelites are then free from their bondage in Egypt and are able to continue their journey to the Promised Land. This chapter is a powerful reminder of God's faithfulness and power. He is able to deliver His people from their enemies and provide a way of escape. It is also a reminder of the importance of obedience, as the Israelites were only able to be freed when they followed God's instructions.
