Exodus 15:14 Meaning and Commentary

Exodus 15:14

And the people shall hear, and be afraid
What follows from hence to the end of the song is plainly prophetic, a prediction of future events; and this clause respects the case of all the nations of the earth, who should hear the report of the plagues, brought upon the Egyptians for the sake of Israel, and of their being brought out of Egypt, and of their being led through the Red sea as on dry land, and of the destruction of Pharaoh and his host in it, which report would strike a panic in all that heard it, throughout the whole world; as well as of what the Lord would after this do for them in the wilderness, see ( Deuteronomy 2:25 ) sorrow shall take hold of the inhabitants of Palestina;
which was adjoining to the land of Canaan, and through which in the common way their road lay to it.

Exodus 15:14 In-Context

13 In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed. In your strength you will guide them to your holy dwelling.
14 The nations will hear and tremble; anguish will grip the people of Philistia.
15 The chiefs of Edom will be terrified, the leaders of Moab will be seized with trembling, the people of Canaan will melt away;
