Exodus 14:1-20 (KJV)
[1] And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

[2] Speak unto the children of Israel, that they
turn and encamp before Pi hahiroth, between
Migdol and the sea, over against Baalzephon:
before it shall ye encamp by the sea.

[3] For Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel,
They are entangled in the land, the wilderness
hath shut them in.

[4] And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, that he
shall follow after them; and I will be honoured
upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host; that the
Egyptians may know that I am the Lord.
And they did so.

[5] And it was told the king of Egypt that
the people fled: and the heart of Pharaoh
and of his servants 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 captains
over every one of them.

[8] And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh
king of Egypt, and he pursued after the
children of Israel: and the children of Israel
went out with an high hand.

[9] But the Egyptians pursued after them, all
the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, and his
horsemen, and his army, and overtook them
encamping by the sea, beside Pi hahiroth,
before Baal zephon.

[10] And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children
of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold,
the Egyptians marched after them; and they
were sore afraid: and the children 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? wherefore hast thou
dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt?

[12] Is not this the word that we did tell thee
in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the
Egyptians? For it had 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 salvation of the Lord,
which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptias
whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them
again no more for ever.

[14] The Lord shall fight for you, and ye
shall hold your peace.

[15] And the Lord said unto Moses, Wherefore
criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of
Israel, that they go forward:

[16] But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out
thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the
children of Israel shall go on dry ground through
the midst of the sea.

[17] And I, behold, I will harden the hearts of
the Egyptians, and they shall follow them: and
I will get me honour upon Pharaoh, and upon all
his host, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen.

[18] And the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord,
when I have gotten me honour upon Pharaoh, upon his
chariots, and upon his horsemen.

[19] And the angel of God, which went before the
camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and
the pillar of the 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 gave light by night to these: so
that the one came not near the other all the night.

May His love and Light fill you bountifully!
