disaster Pharaoh not only refuse.-'
to liberate them, but he imposed
more hardships upon them, so that
they were worse off than ever.
They complained bitterly to
Moses, blaming him for their di
lemma. Discouraged. Moses went to the
Uni and told Him he had failed,
for not only had Pharaoh not let
the people go. but he had added to
their hardships. Then God said.
Now shalt thou see what I will
do to Pharaoh for with a strong
hand shall he let them go. and
with a strong hand shall he drive
them out of his land."
He revealed how He would bring,
plagues on the Egyptians until
Pharaoh would promise to liberate
the Hebrews, and then would
harden Pharaohs heart and he
would refuse again. Moses would
be as a god to Pharaoh, said the
Lord, anil Aaron would be his
In this very long lesson, we can
not possibly touch on all the
plagues with which the Egyptians
were smitten or how Pharaoh
would give his consent to the exo
dus and then change his mtnd. At
the last Moses, unaer the Lord's
guidance, told his people to be
ready to leave. They were to kill
lambs and hold a feast, taking
some of the blood and smearing
it on the lintels of their houses,
for the last and most terrible
plague of all was the death of the
firstborn of each Egyptian. By the
sign of blood on the doors the an
gel of death would know that a

There Was a Great Cry
When 'there was a great cry in
Egypt, for there was not a house
where not one was dead." Pharaoh
gave way and told the Israelites to
"take your tlix-ks and your herds,
as ye have said, and be gone, and
bless me aLso "
' So the Hebrews formed a great
company and went from the land
of Egypt intu the wilderness, with
the Lord guiding them But even
after this terrible calamity Phar
aoh repented letting them go. and

chariots to overtake and bring

Egyptians in pursuit. But the Lord
told Moses to lift up his rod, and
as he did so the waters of the sea
divided, making a wall of water
on each side of them with a dry
path in the middle of the sea, and
the children of Israel passed
through it safely When the Egyp
tians tried to follow them, the wa
ters closed over them, drowning
Then Moses and all his people
sang and gave praises to the Lord
for their deliverance, and Moses'
sister, Miriam, the prophetess,
took a timbrel in her hand and all
the women did likewise, end fol
lowed her, and they danced and
sang. "Sing ye to the Lord, for
He hath triumphed gloriously; lha.
horse and his rider hath He
thrown into the sea."
People Chide Mmn
Many hardships the children of
Israel suffered as they wandered
toward the land the Lord had
promised them. The Lord had sent
a pillar of cloud to lead them by
day and a pillar of fire by night,
but If they had no food or water,
they grumbled and chided Moses
for bringing them away from
Egypt. Always, however, the Lord
showed Moses a way to feed them.
"I have heard the murmurings
of the children of Israel," the Lord
said, "speak unto them, saying,
At even ye shall eat flesh, and in
the morning ye shall be filled with
bread; and ye shall know that I
am the Lord your God."
And so it came to pass. Quails
came up at night and covered the
camp and they slew and ate. and
in the morning the ground was
covered with manna, which, said
Moses, "is the bread which the
Lord hath given you to eat."
Then they were attacked by the
Amalekites. These people were de
scended from Esau, and closely re
lated to the Hebrews. Moses held
up his hand, and when he did so.
Amalek lost, but when his hand
fell from weariness, Amalek won;
so Aaron and Hur held up his
hands, one on either side, so the
Israelites were victorious. Moses
built an altar here and called the
place Jehovahnissi, for he said,
"Because the Lord hath sworn
that the Lord will have war with
Amalek from generation to gener
ation." Here Jethro. his father-in-law,
came, having heard of his success,
and they had a reunion. With
Jethro was Moses' wife, Zipporah,
and his two sons. Jethro counseled
Moses on how best to settle dis
putes among the people by ap
pointing judges to hear their com
plaints and relieve him of the bur
den. So Moses took Jethro's ad
vice and his father-in-law left and
went back to his own land.
