After seeing the destruction of their cruel slave-drivers, Moses and the people of Yisharal sang this song to YAHUSHA: “I sing to Yahuah for He is exalted on high. He has thrown both horse and rider deep into the sea. Yahuah is my strength and my song and He has become my deliverance. He is the mighty Alahim of my fathers and I praise Him. He is a soldier, a man of battle - Yahuah is His Name! The Pharaoh’s chariots and army, He’s thrown deep into the sea. Even his nest officers are drowned in the Sea of Reeds. The waters of the deep gushed over them and they sank to the bottom like a stone.
Your right hand, O’ Yahuah beams bright with great power. Your right hand, O Yahuah, has smashed the enemy. In the greatness of Your esteem and majesty you overthrow those who rise against You. You unleash your blazing fury and it consumes them all like straw and stubble. And from the wind of Your nostrils the waters were piled up! Yes! The surging waters stood straight up like a wall, in the heart of the sea the deep waters became hard. The enemy boasted, ‘I will chase them and overtake them. I will plunder them and ruin them. I will draw out my sword and my powerful hand will destroy them.’ But You blew with Your breath and the sea covered them. They sank like lead in the mighty waters.
Who is like you among the other deities (mighty ones), O’ Yahuah, set-apart, esteemed and awesome in splendor, performing great wonders? You stretched out Your right hand and the earth swallowed up our enemies. In Your unfailing kindness You lead the people who You have redeemed and in Your might You guide them to Your set-apart home. The people hear and tremble and anguish grips those who live in Philistia. The leaders of Edom are terrified, the nobles of Moab tremble and all who live in Canaan melt away as terror and dread fall upon them. Fear and dread fell on them, by the greatness of Your arm they are as silent as a stone, until Your people pass over, O’ Yahuah, until the people who You have bought, pass over. You bring them in and plant them in the mountain of Your inheritance, in the place, O’ Yahuah , which You have made for Your own dwelling, the set-apart place, O’ Yahuah, which Your hands have prepared. Yahuah reigns forever and ever.”
YISHARAL STILL BELIEVED IN MANY DEITIES, YAHUSHA WAS JUST THE BEST ONE NOW !!??
Then Miriam the prophetess, Aaron and Moses’s sister, took a tambourine and led all the women as they played their tambourines and danced. And Miriam sang this song: “Sing to Yahuah for he is exalted on high. He has thrown both horse and rider deep into the sea”.
THE NUMBER OF THOSE WHO LEFT EGYPT WOULD HAVE BEEN ABOUT THREE MILLION PEOPLE AND AFTER A FEW DAYS THE WHOLE REGION WOULD HAVE KNOWN ABOUT THIS MASS EXODUS. THE NATIONS PHILISTIA, EDOM, MOAB AND CANAAN ARE MENTIONED IN THE TEXT BECAUSE THE DESCENDANTS OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB HELD THE BELIEF THAT THEY WOULD ONE DAY END UP INHERITING THE TERRITORY CURRENTLY INHABITED BY THESE FOUR NATIONS. AND THESE FOUR NATIONS WOULD HAVE ALSO HEARD ABOUT THE DEVASTATION THE ALAHIM OF YISHARAL HAD JUST WREAKED ON EGYPT. IF THEIR ALAHIM HAD SO EASILY MADE A MOCKERY OF EGYPT’S DEITIES, THEY WOULD HAVE REALIZED THERE MIGHT BE NO STOPPING HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE IF THEY DECIDED TO TAKE THEIR LAND FROM THEM. THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN VERY INTERESTED WHERE THESE 3 MILLION PEOPLE WERE NOW HEADING !!!
BITTER WATER AT MARAH
Then Moses led the people of Yisharal away from the Sea of Reeds (Red Sea), and they moved out into the desert of Shur. They travelled in this desert for three days without finding any water and when they finally came to a waterhole, the water was way too bitter and unclean for them to drink. So they called the place Marah (which means “bitter”).
Then the people began to grumble and complained, turning against Moses. “It’s been days Moses, what the hell are we going to drink?” they demanded.
So Moses cried out to YAHUSHA for help, and YAHUSHA showed him a tree, which Moses threw into the waters, and this made the water good and clean enough to drink again. And it was there at Marah that YAHUSHA established the following rules and consequences as a standard of correct behavior, to test Yisharal’s obedience.
He said, “IF YOU WILL listen carefully and obey My voice and do what I say is good and right, obeying and guarding all of My Instructions, THEN I WILL not make you suffer any of the diseases I sent on the Egyptians, for I am Yahuah who heals you.”
(UNLIKE WITH ABRAHAM, YAHUSHA WAS NOW PUTTING STIPULATIONS AND REQUIREMENTS IN PLACE FOR HIS BRIDE.)
And after leaving Marah, Yisharal travelled onto the oasis of Elim, where they found twelve huge fountain springs of water and seventy palm trees. And they camped there beside the water.
MORE THAN 10 MILLION GALLONS OF WATER PER DAY WOULD HAVE BEEN NECESSARY TO KEEP YISHARAL ALIVE.
