And I, behold, I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians
That they shall have no sense of danger, and be fearless of it, incautious and thoughtless, hurried on with wrath and fury, malice and revenge:
and they shall follow them;
the Israelites into the sea, supposing it to be as safe for the one as the other:
and I will get me honour upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host, upon his
chariots, and upon his horsemen:
by the utter destruction of them, in just retaliation for the many innocent infants that had been drowned by them in the river Nile.
