SEV Biblia, Chapter 14:24 Y aconteció a la vela de la mañana, que el SEÑOR miró al campamento de los egipcios en la columna de fuego y nube, y alborotó el campamento de los egipcios.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Exodus 14:24 Verse 24. The morning watch] A watch was the fourth part of the time from sun-setting to sun-rising; so called from soldiers keeping guard by night, who being changed four times during the night, the periods came to be called watches. - Dodd.
As here and in 1 Sam. xi. 11; is mentioned the morning watch; so in Lam. ii. 19, the beginning of the watches; and in Judg. vii. 19, the middle watch is spoken of; in Luke xii. 38, the second and third watch; and in Matt. xiv. 25, the fourth watch of the night; which in Mark xiii. 35 are named evening, midnight, cock-crowing, and day-dawning. - Ainsworth.
As the Israelites went out of Egypt at the vernal equinox, the morning watch, or, according to the Hebrew, rqbh trmab beashmoreth habboker, the watch of day-break, would answer to our four o'clock in the morning. - Calmet.
The Lord looked unto] This probably means that the cloud suddenly assumed a fiery appearance where it had been dark before; or they were appalled by violent thunders and lightning, which we are assured by the psalmist did actually take place, together with great inundations of rain, &c.: The clouds POURED OUT WATER; the skies sent out a SOUND: thine ARROWS also went abroad. The VOICE of thy THUNDER was in the heaven; the LIGHTNINGS LIGHTENED the world; the earth TREMBLED and SHOOK.
Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters. Thou leddest thy people like a flock, by the hand of Moses and Aaron; Psa. lxxvii. 17-20.
Such tempests as these would necessarily terrify the Egyptian horses, and produce general confusion. By their dashing hither and thither the wheels must be destroyed, and the chariots broken; and foot and horse must be mingled together in one universal ruin; see ver. 25. During the time that this state of horror and confusion was at its summit the Israelites had safely passed over; and then Moses, at the command of God, (ver. 26,) having stretched out his rod over the waters, the sea returned to its strength; (ver. 27;) i.e., the waters by their natural gravity resumed their level, and the whole Egyptian host were completely overwhelmed, ver. 28. But as to the Israelites, the waters had been a wall unto them on the right hand and on the left, ver. 29. This the waters could not have been, unless they had been supernaturally supported; as their own gravity would necessarily have occasioned them to have kept their level, or, if raised beyond it, to have regained it if left to their natural law, to which they are ever subject, unless in cases of miraculous interference. Thus the enemies of the Lord perished; and that people who decreed that the male children of the Hebrews should be drowned, were themselves destroyed in the pit which they had destined for others. God's ways are all equal; and he renders to every man according to his works.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 21-31 - The dividing the Red sea was the terror of the Canaanites, Jos 2:9; the praise and triumph of the Israelites, Ps 114:3; 106:9; 136:13. It was type of baptism, 1Co 10:1, 2. Israel's passage through it was typica of the conversion of souls, Isa 11:15; and the Egyptians being drowne in it was typical of the final ruin of all unrepenting sinners. God showed his almighty power, by opening a passage through the waters some miles over. God can bring his people through the greates difficulties, and force a way where he does not find it. It was a instance of his wonderful favour to his Israel. They went through the sea, they walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea. This was done in order to encourage God's people in all ages to trust him in the greatest straits. What cannot he do who did this? What will not he d for those that fear and love him, who did this for these murmuring unbelieving Israelites? Then followed the just and righteous wrath of God upon his and his people's enemies. The ruin of sinners is brough on by their own rage and presumption. They might have let Israel alone and would not; now they would flee from the face of Israel, and cannot Men will not be convinced, till it is too late, that those who meddl with God's people, meddle to their own hurt. Moses was ordered to stretch out his hand over the sea; the waters returned, and overwhelme all the host of the Egyptians. Pharaoh and his servants, who ha hardened one another in sin, now fell together, not one escaped. The Israelites saw the Egyptians dead upon the sands. The sight very muc affected them. While men see God's works, and feel the benefit, the fear him and trust in him. How well were it for us, if we were alway in as good a frame as sometimes! Behold the end to which a Christia may look forward. His enemies rage, and are mighty; but while he hold fast by God, he shall pass the waves in safety guarded by that very power of his Saviour, which shall come down on every spiritual foe. The enemies of his soul whom he hath seen to-day, he shall see no more for ever __________________________________________________________________
