B’SHALACH (when he let go)

Moses parts the Red Sea

Exodus 14:22 And the Children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall to them on their right hand and on their left. C-MATS

Question: How were the waters like a wall to them? From the heat of the wind that came out of יהוה’s nose, the water dried up, and it became like piles which are tall like a wall that the depths hardened and became like stones, and the water hurled the Egyptians against the stone with all its might and fought with the Egyptians with all kinds of harshness. Jashar

Exodus 14:23 And the Egyptians pursued and went in after them into the midst of the sea- all of Pharaohs horses, his chariots and his horsemen. 24 And it came to pass that in the morning watch יהוה looked at the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and the cloud and troubled את the host of the Egyptians. C-MATS

Question: How did יהוה troubled את the host of the Egyptians? Wherever it says מְהוּמָה [confusion], it means an ear-splitting noise, so the Egyptians acted irrationally and in sheer terror. Chumash

Question: How did יהוה take off את the wheels from their chariots? יהוה caused searing heat from the cloud (of fire) to melt the wheels of the chariots, so that the hysterical horses pulled them over the hard seabed, tossing the occupants against each other and the walls of the chariots, so that their limbs became dislocated. This was a measure for measure punishment for the way the Egyptians had mistreated the Hebrews. Chumash
