And I brought your fathers out of Egypt
Which more fully expresses the sense of the last clause of ( Joshua 24:5 ) :
and you came unto the sea;
which respects some senior persons then present; for, besides Caleb and Joshua, there were many at this time alive who came to and passed through the Red sea, at their coming out of Egypt; for those whose carcasses fell in the wilderness were such as were mere than twenty years of age at their coming out from Egypt, and who were the murmurers in the wilderness; and it may be reasonably supposed, that many of those who were under twenty years of age at that time were now living:
and the Egyptians pursued after your fathers, with chariots and
horsemen, into the Red sea;
of the number of their chariots and horsemen, see ( Exodus 14:7 Exodus 14:9 ) ; with these they pursued the Israelites, not only unto, but into the Red sea, following them into it; the reason of which strange action is given in ( Joshua 24:7 ) .
