The people of Israel have been brought out of Egyptian slavery by God’s mighty hand. The people were taken south into the desert and backed up against the sea. When the Egyptians pursued, God caused the waters to part so that the people of Israel could walk across on dry land. As the Egyptians followed in, God caused the waters to crash back down on to them, destroying them in the sea. With this victory, Moses and the people sing a song of victory, praising God for his strong arm that led them out. It is time to go to the land of Canaan, promised by God to Abraham that his descendants would occupy this land.
