But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over
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 )
