Recently I was reading a part of Corrie Ten Boom’s little book, Plenty for Everyone, and these two verses in Exodus 14 gripped me.

See what the Lord says to you –

Exodus 14:13-14 (King James Version)

13And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.

14The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

Exodus 14:13-14 (New Century Version)

13 But Moses answered, “Don’t be afraid! Stand still and you will see the Lord save you today. You will never see these Egyptians again after today.14 You only need to remain calm; the Lord will fight for you.”

Exodus 14:13-14 (Amplified Bible)

13Moses told the people, Fear not; stand still (firm, confident, undismayed) and see the salvation of the Lord which He will work for you today. For the Egyptians you have seen today you shall never see again.

14The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace and remain at rest.
