Live Bait

Having finished working through Genesis, my Translation work is now tooling through Exodus. Every so often I like to reformulate what I’ve spent the day micro-analyzing, to look at the forest instead of the trees.  This is from chapter 14.

Live bait. That’s what God said his people were. And there they were, a million plus, caught between the desert and the deep blue sea, red sea, reed sea. Pharaoh anticipated a straight mop-up operation. The Israelites figured themselves so much dead meat. God said, “Be quiet. I will fight for you. You will never see this enemy again.”
Then he walked them out of an impossible situation by a solution no one else even contemplated. He still specializes in those things. I believe.
