But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the
sea, and divide it
Even the same rod with which so many wonders had been done in Egypt; and Artapanus, the Heathen, says F24, that Moses being bid by a divine voice to smite the sea with his rod, he hearkened to it, and touched the water with it, and so it divided, as it is said it did, ( Exodus 14:21 )
