SEV Biblia, Chapter 14:31 Y vio Israel aquel grande hecho que el SEÑOR ejecutó contra los egipcios; y el pueblo temió al SEÑOR, y creyeron al SEÑOR y a Moisés su siervo.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Exodus 14:31 Verse 31. The people feared the Lord] They were convinced by the interference of Jehovah that his power was unlimited, and that he could do whatsoever he pleased, both in the way of judgment and in the way of mercy.
And believed the Lord, and his servant Moses.] They now clearly discerned that God had fulfilled all his promises; and that not one thing had failed of all the good which he had spoken concerning Israel. And they believed his servant Moses - they had now the fullest proof that he was Divinely appointed to work all these miracles, and to bring them out of Egypt into the promised land.
Thus God got himself honour upon Pharaoh and the Egyptians, and credit in the sight of Israel. After this overthrow of their king and his host, the Egyptians interrupted them no more in the journeyings, convinced of the omnipotence of their Protector: and how strange, that after such displays of the justice and mercy of Jehovah, the Israelites should ever have been deficient in faith, or have given place to murmuring! 1. THE events recorded in this chapter are truly astonishing; and they strongly mark what God can do, and what he will do, both against his enemies and in behalf of his followers. In vain are all the forces of Egypt united to destroy the Israelites: at the breath of God's mouth they perish; and his feeble, discouraged, unarmed followers take the prey! With such a history before their eyes, is it not strange that sinners should run on frowardly in the path of transgression; and that those who are redeemed from the world, should ever doubt of the all-sufficiency and goodness of their God! Had we not already known the sequel of the Israelitish history, we should have been led to conclude that this people would have gone on their way rejoicing, trusting in God with their whole heart, and never leaning to their own understanding; but alas! we find that as soon as any new difficulty occurred, they murmured against God and their leaders, despised the pleasant land, and gave no credence to his word.
2. Their case is not a solitary one: most of those who are called Christians are not more remarkable for faith and patience. Every reverse will necessarily pain and discompose the people who are seeking their portion in this life. And it is a sure mark of a worldly mind, when we trust the God of Providence and grace no farther than we see the operations of his hand in our immediate supply; and murmur and repine when the hand of his bounty seems closed, and the influences of his Spirit restrained, though our unthankful and unholy carriage has been the cause of this change. Those alone who humble themselves under the mighty hand of God, shall be lifted up in due season. Reader, thou canst never be deceived in trusting thy all, the concerns of thy body and soul, to Him who divided the sea, saved the Hebrews, and destroyed the Egyptians.
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 __________________________________________________________________
