Today we say:
are You, Yahweh our God, King of the Universe,
sanctified us by His Word, and instructed us to count the Omer:
18 days of the Omer; it is 2 week and 4 days of the Omer.”
What we are reading about here happened about 3500 years ago. If you like to
picture time frames in your mind: following this would be about 500 years of the
Tabernacle, then 1000 years of the Holy Temple, with Yeshua coming near the end
of that time.
Firstly, let us look at the sequence of events in this portion, then the events
at the time of the crucifixion, and finally the times in our lives.
The Egyptian Passover 3500 years ago (AM 2448 by traditional count):
As Yahweh instructed through Moses, the Sons of Israel killed a lamb per family
on Nisan 14, a “Wednesday”.
On the night of the 15th, they ate it, and in the morning left Egypt:
they traveled from Rameses (Treasure City) to Sukkot (Temporary
On Nisan 16 they traveled to Etham (Away from Them).
On the 17th – the third day, and a Sabbath – they camped at Pi-hachirot,
turning back toward Egypt.
On the 18th the three days were passed and Israel had not returned to
Egypt, so the Pharaoh organized his armies to go after them.
Three days later, on Nisan 21, the Pharaoh’s armies found them at the Red Sea,
causing bitter complaint from the people to Moses. Moses said (v.14:13), “Stand
still and see Yeshua Yahweh” (the Salvation of the Lord), and the Sons of Israel
passed through the Sea on dry land, but the Egyptian army was drowned. Then the
people believed God – this is called the Day of Faith (the seventh day of
The Jerusalem Passover 2000 years ago (about AD 30):
The Passover Lamb of God – Yeshua – was crucified on Nisan 14, a “Wednesday”.
He was in the grave on the 15th, 16th, and 17th,
returning to the world, “back toward Egypt”, late on the third day, which was a
On the 18th, a “Sunday” morning, some people came looking for Him.
The story of our life:
(V.2-4) “Tell God’s elect (the Sons of Israel): ‘Repent (turn back)
and sit (camp) before the Word of Salvation (the Mouth of Freedom /
Pi-hachirot). You shall be between the High City (Migdol) and the
world’s multitudes (the sea), camped in front of the god of the north (baal-tzephon).
This god of the world (Pharaoh) will say that you are wandering
aimlessly, and are trapped by the world (wilderness). He will chase you,
but in the end, I will be honored, and all of the world will know that I am
We are to leave the treasure city (worlds delights) and go to the place of
temporary dwelling here with God. We are to go “away from them” – be
holy/separate from sinners. The world will think that we are totally confused,
not knowing where we are going. After we come back toward the world, at our
resurrection, it will be renewed – idolaters will be destroyed from it.
Shortly before His crucifixion, Yeshua said, “Destroy this temple, and in three
days I will raise it up” (John 2:19). He also said, “What man among you, having
a lamb, if it fall into a pit, will he not raise it out on a Sabbath” (Matthew
12:11). Yeshua raised His temple, His body, from a pit on the third day, a
Yeshua was crucified on the fourth day of a week (Wednesday) and raised on a
seventh day (Sabbath). He was also crucified on the fourth millennial day (prior
to AM 4001) and will raise up His Temple on the Sabbath Millennium; so His
statement will also be literally fulfilled concerning the Temple at Jerusalem
which was to represent Him.
Now let us look at some more details
of today’s portions.
(V.20) And Miriam the prophetess,
Aaron's sister – She was called Aaron’s sister instead of Moses’ sister,
because (1) she gave her first prophecy before Moses was born, when Aaron was a
child, and (2) Aaron risked his life for her (Numbers 12:12).
(V.21-22) Then Moses (Drawn
out of Water) stretched out his hand over the sea; and Yahweh swept the sea
back by a strong east wind all night, and turned the sea into dry land, so the
waters were divided. And the sons of Israel went through the midst of the sea on
the dry land, and the waters were like a wall to them on their right hand and on
their left. They crossed the Red Sea on Nisan 21. The seven days from the
Passover (Nisan 15) to the crossing of the Sea (Nisan 21) are memorialized by
the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
The Egyptians were so steeped in
their idolatry that they refused to recognize Yahweh – even after all the
plagues that struck them but not Israel, even upon seeing the sea parted: they
still pursued. Is this not like our day, when the world worships theories of
their own making, in order to reject God?
Israel was able to see the dead
Egyptians on the shore, thus comprehending the full extent of God’s miraculous
salvation. On the future, it is written, (Psalm 91:8) “You
will only look on with your eyes, and see the recompense of the wicked”.
“Blessed be the God and Father of
our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, who according to His great mercy has caused us to
be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Yeshua the Messiah
from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and
will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are protected by the power
of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time”
– 1 Peter 1:3-5.
"Blessed are You, Yahweh our God, King
of the Universe,
Who chose us from among all peoples by
giving us Your Torah.
Blessed are You, Yahweh, giver of the
Amen. 21 Yahweh was going before
them in a pillar of cloud by day to lead them on the way,
and in a pillar of fire by night to give them light, that
they might travel by day and by night. 22 He did
not take away the pillar of cloud by day, nor the pillar of
fire by night, from before the people.
14:1 Now Yahweh spoke to Moses,
saying, 2 "Tell the sons of Israel to turn back and camp before Pi-hahiroth,
between Migdol and the sea; you shall camp in front of Baal-zephon, opposite it,
by the sea. 3 "For Pharaoh will say of the sons of Israel, 'They are
wandering aimlessly in the land; the wilderness has shut them in.' 4
"Thus I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and he will chase after them; and I will be
honored through Pharaoh and all his army, and the Egyptians will know that I am
Yahweh." And they did so.
Reader 2* Amen. 5
When the king of Egypt was told that the people had fled, Pharaoh and his
servants had a change of heart toward the people, and they said, "What is this
we have done, that we have let Israel go from serving us?" 6 So he
made his chariot ready and took his people with him; 7 and he took
six hundred select chariots, and all the other chariots of Egypt with officers
over all of them. 8 Yahweh hardened the heart of Pharaoh, king of
Egypt, and he chased after the sons of Israel as the sons of Israel were going
out boldly. 9 Then the Egyptians chased after them with all the
horses and chariots of Pharaoh, his horsemen and his army, and they overtook
them camping by the sea, beside Pi-hahiroth, in front of Baal-zephon. 10
As Pharaoh drew near, the sons of Israel looked, and behold, the Egyptians were
marching after them, and they became very frightened; so the sons of Israel
cried out to Yahweh. 11 Then they said to Moses, "Is it because there
were no graves in Egypt that you have taken us away to die in the wilderness?
Why have you dealt with us in this way, bringing us out of Egypt? 12
"Is this not the word that we spoke to you in Egypt, saying, 'Leave us alone
that we may serve the Egyptians '? For it would have been better for us to serve
the Egyptians than to die in the wilderness."
Reader 3* Amen. 13
But Moses said to the people, "Do not fear! Stand by and see the salvation of
Yahweh which He will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you have
seen today, you will never see them again forever. 14 "Yahweh will
fight for you while you keep silent." 15 Then Yahweh said to Moses,
"Why are you crying out to Me? Tell the sons of Israel to go forward. 16
"As for you, lift up your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea and
divide it, and the sons of Israel shall go through the midst of the sea on dry
land. 17 "As for Me, behold, I will harden the hearts of the
Egyptians so that they will go in after them; and I will be honored through
Pharaoh and all his army, through his chariots and his horsemen. 18
"Then the Egyptians will know that I am Yahweh, when I am honored through
Pharaoh, through his chariots and his horsemen." 19 The angel of God,
who had been going before the camp of Israel, moved and went behind them; and
the pillar of cloud moved from before them and stood behind them. 20
So it came between the camp of Egypt and the camp of Israel; and there was the
cloud along with the darkness, yet it gave light at night. Thus the one did not
come near the other all night.
Reader 4* Amen. 21
Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and Yahweh swept the sea back by
a strong east wind all night and turned the sea into dry land, so the waters
were divided. 22 The sons of Israel went through the midst of the sea
on the dry land, and the waters were like a wall to them on their right hand and
on their left. 23 Then the Egyptians took up the pursuit, and all
Pharaoh's horses, his chariots and his horsemen went in after them into the
midst of the sea. 24 At the morning watch, Yahweh looked down on the
army of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and cloud and brought the army
of the Egyptians into confusion. 25 He caused their chariot wheels to
swerve, and He made them drive with difficulty; so the Egyptians said, "Let us
flee from Israel, for Yahweh is fighting for them against the Egyptians."
Reader 5* Amen. 26
Then Yahweh said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand over the sea so that the
waters may come back over the Egyptians, over their chariots and their
horsemen." 27 So Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the
sea returned to its normal state at daybreak, while the Egyptians were fleeing
right into it; then Yahweh overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea.
28 The waters returned and covered the chariots and the horsemen, even
Pharaoh's entire army that had gone into the sea after them; not even one of
them remained. 29 But the sons of Israel walked on dry land through
the midst of the sea, and the waters were like a wall to them on their right
hand and on their left. 30 Thus Yahweh saved Israel that day from the
hand of the Egyptians, and Israel saw the Egyptians dead on the seashore.
31 When Israel saw the great power which Yahweh had used against the
Egyptians, the people feared Yahweh, and they believed in Yahweh and in His
servant Moses. 15:1 Then Moses and the sons of Israel sang this song
to Yahweh, and said,
Reader 6* Amen. "I will sing
to Yahweh, for He is highly exalted; the horse and its rider He has hurled into
the sea. 2 "Yahweh is my strength and song, and He has become my
salvation; this is my God, and I will praise Him; my father's God, and I will
extol Him. 3 "Yahweh is a warrior; Yahweh is His name. 4
"Pharaoh's chariots and his army He has cast into the sea; and the choicest of
his officers are drowned in the Red Sea. 5 "The deeps cover them;
they went down into the depths like a stone. 6 "Your right hand, O
Yahweh, is majestic in power, Your right hand, O Yahweh, shatters the enemy.
7 "And in the greatness of Your excellence You overthrow those who
rise up against You; You send forth Your burning anger, and it consumes them as
chaff. 8 "At the blast of Your nostrils the waters were piled up, the
flowing waters stood up like a heap; the deeps were congealed in the heart of
the sea. 9 "The enemy said, 'I will pursue, I will overtake, I will
divide the spoil; my desire shall be gratified against them; I will draw out my
sword, my hand will destroy them.' 10 "You blew with Your wind, the
sea covered them; they sank like lead in the mighty waters. 11 "Who
is like You among the gods, O Yahweh? Who is like You, majestic in holiness,
awesome in praises, working wonders? 12 "You stretched out Your right
hand, the earth swallowed them. 13 "In Your lovingkindness You have
led the people whom You have redeemed; in Your strength You have guided them to
Your holy habitation. 14 "The peoples have heard, they tremble;
anguish has gripped the inhabitants of Philistia. 15 "Then the chiefs
of Edom were dismayed; the leaders of Moab, trembling grips them; all the
inhabitants of Canaan have melted away. 16 "Terror and dread fall
upon them; by the greatness of Your arm they are motionless as stone; until Your
people pass over, O Yahweh, until the people pass over whom You have purchased.
17 "You will bring them and plant them in the mountain of Your
inheritance, the place, O Yahweh, which You have made for Your dwelling, the
sanctuary, O Yahweh, which Your hands have established. 18 "Yahweh
shall reign forever and ever."
Reader 7* Amen. 19
For the horses of Pharaoh with his chariots and his horsemen went into the sea,
and Yahweh brought back the waters of the sea on them, but the sons of Israel
walked on dry land through the midst of the sea. 20 Miriam the
prophetess, Aaron's sister, took the timbrel in her hand, and all the women went
out after her with timbrels and with dancing. 21 Miriam answered
them, "Sing to Yahweh, for He is highly exalted; the horse and his rider He has
hurled into the sea."
"Blessed are You, Yahweh our God, King
of the Universe,
Who in giving us Yeshua, the Living
Torah, has planted everlasting life in our midst.
Blessed are You, Yahweh, giver of the

Judges 4:4 – 5:31
(Not read) 4 Now Deborah,
a prophetess, the wife of Lappidoth, was judging Israel at that time. 5
She used to sit under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in the
hill country of Ephraim; and the sons of Israel came up to her for judgment.
6 Now she sent and summoned Barak the son of Abinoam from
Kedesh-naphtali, and said to him, "Behold, Yahweh, the God of Israel, has
commanded, 'Go and march to Mount Tabor, and take with you ten thousand men from
the sons of Naphtali and from the sons of Zebulun. 7 'I will draw out
to you Sisera, the commander of Jabin's army, with his chariots and his many
troops to the river Kishon, and I will give him into your hand.'" 8
Then Barak said to her, "If you will go with me, then I will go; but if you will
not go with me, I will not go." 9 She said, "I will surely go with
you; nevertheless, the honor shall not be yours on the journey that you are
about to take, for Yahweh will sell Sisera into the hands of a woman." Then
Deborah arose and went with Barak to Kedesh. 10 Barak called Zebulun
and Naphtali together to Kedesh, and ten thousand men went up with him; Deborah
also went up with him. 11 Now Heber the Kenite had separated himself
from the Kenites, from the sons of Hobab the father-in-law of Moses, and had
pitched his tent as far away as the oak in Zaanannim, which is near Kedesh.
12 Then they told Sisera that Barak the son of Abinoam had gone up to
Mount Tabor. 13 Sisera called together all his chariots, nine hundred
iron chariots, and all the people who were with him, from Harosheth-hagoyim to
the river Kishon. 14 Deborah said to Barak, "Arise! For this is the
day in which Yahweh has given Sisera into your hands; behold, Yahweh has gone
out before you." So Barak went down from Mount Tabor with ten thousand men
following him. 15 Yahweh routed Sisera and all his chariots and all
his army with the edge of the sword before Barak; and Sisera alighted from his
chariot and fled away on foot. 16 But Barak pursued the chariots and
the army as far as Harosheth-hagoyim, and all the army of Sisera fell by the
edge of the sword; not even one was left. 17 Now Sisera fled away on
foot to the tent of Jael the wife of Heber the Kenite, for there was peace
between Jabin the king of Hazor and the house of Heber the Kenite. 18
Jael went out to meet Sisera, and said to him, "Turn aside, my master, turn
aside to me! Do not be afraid." And he turned aside to her into the tent, and
she covered him with a rug. 19 He said to her, "Please give me a
little water to drink, for I am thirsty." So she opened a bottle of milk and
gave him a drink; then she covered him. 20 He said to her, "Stand in
the doorway of the tent, and it shall be if anyone comes and inquires of you,
and says, 'Is there anyone here?' that you shall say, 'No.'" 21 But
Jael, Heber's wife, took a tent peg and seized a hammer in her hand, and went
secretly to him and drove the peg into his temple, and it went through into the
ground; for he was sound asleep and exhausted. So he died. 22 And
behold, as Barak pursued Sisera, Jael came out to meet him and said to him,
"Come, and I will show you the man whom you are seeking." And he entered with
her, and behold Sisera was lying dead with the tent peg in his temple. 23
So God subdued on that day Jabin the king of Canaan before the sons of Israel.
24 The hand of the sons of Israel pressed heavier and heavier upon
Jabin the king of Canaan, until they had destroyed Jabin the king of Canaan.
5:1 Then Deborah and Barak the
son of Abinoam sang on that day, saying,
2 "That the leaders led in
Israel, That the people volunteered, Bless Yahweh! 3 "Hear, O kings;
give ear, O rulers! I-- to Yahweh, I will sing, I will sing praise to Yahweh,
the God of Israel. 4 "Yahweh, when You went out from Seir, when You
marched from the field of Edom, the earth quaked, the heavens also dripped, even
the clouds dripped water. 5 "The mountains quaked at the presence of
Yahweh, this Sinai, at the presence of Yahweh, the God of Israel. 6
"In the days of Shamgar the son of Anath, in the days of Jael, the highways were
deserted, and travelers went by roundabout ways. 7 "The peasantry
ceased, they ceased in Israel, until I, Deborah, arose, until I arose, a mother
in Israel. 8 "New gods were chosen; then war was in the gates. not a
shield or a spear was seen among forty thousand in Israel. 9 "My
heart goes out to the commanders of Israel, the volunteers among the people;
bless Yahweh! 10 "You who ride on white donkeys, you who sit on rich
carpets, and you who travel on the road-- sing! 11 "At the sound of
those who divide flocks among the watering places, there they shall recount the
righteous deeds of Yahweh, the righteous deeds for His peasantry in Israel. Then
the people of Yahweh went down to the gates. 12 "Awake, awake,
Deborah; Awake, awake, sing a song! Arise, Barak, and take away your captives, O
son of Abinoam. 13 "Then survivors came down to the nobles; the
people of Yahweh came down to me as warriors. 14 "From Ephraim those
whose root is in Amalek came down, following you, Benjamin, with your peoples;
from Machir commanders came down, and from Zebulun those who wield the staff of
office. 15 "And the princes of Issachar were with Deborah; as was
Issachar, so was Barak; into the valley they rushed at his heels; among the
divisions of Reuben there were great resolves of heart. 16 "Why did
you sit among the sheepfolds, to hear the piping for the flocks? Among the
divisions of Reuben there were great searchings of heart. 17 "Gilead
remained across the Jordan; and why did Dan stay in ships? Asher sat at the
seashore, and remained by its landings. 18 "Zebulun was a people who
despised their lives even to death, and Naphtali also, on the high places of the
field. 19 "The kings came and fought; then fought the kings of Canaan
at Taanach near the waters of Megiddo; they took no plunder in silver. 20
"The stars fought from heaven, from their courses they fought against Sisera.
21 "The torrent of Kishon swept them away, the ancient torrent, the
torrent Kishon. O my soul, march on with strength. 22 "Then the
horses' hoofs beat from the dashing, the dashing of his valiant steeds. 23
'Curse Meroz,' said the angel of Yahweh, 'Utterly curse its inhabitants; because
they did not come to the help of Yahweh, to the help of Yahweh against the
warriors.' 24 "Most blessed of women is Jael, the wife of Heber the
Kenite; most blessed is she of women in the tent. 25 "He asked for
water and she gave him milk; in a magnificent bowl she brought him curds.
26 "She reached out her hand for the tent peg, and her right hand for the
workmen's hammer. Then she struck Sisera, she smashed his head; and she
shattered and pierced his temple. 27 "Between her feet he bowed, he
fell, he lay; between her feet he bowed, he fell; where he bowed, there he fell
dead. 28 "Out of the window she looked and lamented, the mother of
Sisera through the lattice, 'Why does his chariot delay in coming? Why do the
hoofbeats of his chariots tarry?' 29 "Her wise princesses would
answer her, indeed she repeats her words to herself, 30 'Are they not
finding, are they not dividing the spoil? A maiden, two maidens for every
warrior; to Sisera a spoil of dyed work, a spoil of dyed work embroidered, dyed
work of double embroidery on the neck of the spoiler?' 31 "Thus let
all Your enemies perish, O Yahweh; but let those who love Him be like the rising
of the sun in its might."
And the land was undisturbed for forty years.
(Not read) 1 Then Joshua
gathered all the tribes of Israel to Shechem, and called for the elders of
Israel and for their heads and their judges and their officers; and they
presented themselves before God. 2 And Joshua said to all the people, "Thus says
Yahweh, the God of Israel, 'From ancient times your fathers lived beyond the
River, namely, Terah, the father of Abraham and the father of Nahor, and they
served other gods. 3 'Then I took your father Abraham from beyond the River, and
led him through all the land of Canaan, and multiplied his descendants and gave
him Isaac. 4 'And to Isaac I gave Jacob and Esau, and to Esau I gave Mount Seir,
to possess it; but Jacob and his sons went down to Egypt. 5 'Then I sent Moses
and Aaron, and I plagued Egypt by what I did in its midst; and afterward I
brought you out. 6 'And I brought your fathers out of Egypt, and you came to the
sea; and Egypt pursued your fathers with chariots and horsemen to the Red Sea. 7
'But when they cried out to Yahweh, He put darkness between you and the
Egyptians, and brought the sea upon them and covered them; and your own eyes saw
what I did in Egypt. And you lived in the wilderness for a long time.
Reader 8* Amen. 18
For thus says Yahweh, who created the heavens (He is the God who formed the
earth and made it, He established it and did not create it a waste place, but
formed it to be inhabited), "I am Yahweh, and there is none else. 19
"I have not spoken in secret, in some dark land; I did not say to the offspring
of Jacob, 'Seek Me in a waste place'; I, Yahweh, speak righteousness, declaring
things that are upright. 20 "Gather yourselves and come; draw near
together, you fugitives of the nations; they have no knowledge, who carry about
their wooden idol and pray to a god who cannot save. 21 "Declare and
set forth your case; indeed, let them consult together. Who has announced this
from of old? Who has long since declared it? Is it not I, Yahweh? And there is
no other God besides Me, a righteous God and a Savior; there is none except Me.
22 "Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God,
and there is no other. 23 "I have sworn by Myself, the word has gone
forth from My mouth in righteousness and will not turn back, that to Me every
knee will bow, every tongue will swear allegiance. 24 "They will say
of Me, 'Only in Yahweh are righteousness and strength.' Men will come to Him,
and all who were angry at Him will be put to shame.
Psalm 51 (To be sung)
For the choir director. A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came to him,
after he had gone in to Bathsheba.
gracious to me, O God, according to Thy lovingkindness; according to the
greatness of Thy compassion blot out my transgressions. 2 Wash me thoroughly
from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. 3 For I know my transgressions,
and my sin is ever before me. 4 Against Thee, Thee only, I have sinned, and done
what is evil in Thy sight, so that Thou art justified when Thou dost speak, and
blameless when Thou dost judge. 5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and
in sin my mother conceived me. 6 Behold, Thou dost desire truth in the innermost
being, and in the hidden part Thou wilt make me know wisdom. 7 Purify me with
hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. 8 Make
me to hear joy and gladness, Let the bones which Thou hast broken rejoice. 9
Hide Thy face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. 10 Create in me a
clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. 11 Do not cast me
away from Thy presence, and do not take Thy Holy Spirit from me. 12 Restore to
me the joy of Thy salvation, and sustain me with a willing spirit. 13 Then I
will teach transgressors Thy ways, and sinners will be converted to Thee. 14
Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, Thou God of my salvation; then my tongue
will joyfully sing of Thy righteousness. 15 O Lord, open my lips, that my mouth
may declare Thy praise. 16 For Thou dost not delight in sacrifice, otherwise I
would give it; Thou art not pleased with burnt offering. 17 The sacrifices of
God are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, O God, Thou wilt not
despise. 18 By Thy favor do good to Zion; build the walls of Jerusalem. 19 Then
Thou wilt delight in righteous sacrifices, in burnt offering and whole burnt
offering; then young bulls will be offered on Thine altar.
Reader 9* Amen. 1 Then I saw
another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels who had seven plagues,
which are the last, because in them the wrath of God is finished. 2
And I saw something like a sea of glass mixed with fire, and those who had been
victorious over the beast and his image and the number of his name, standing on
the sea of glass, holding harps of God. 3 And they sang the song of
Moses, the bond-servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying,
"Great and marvelous are Your works, O Lord God, the Almighty;
righteous and true are Your ways, King of the nations! 4 "Who will
not fear, O Lord, and glorify Your name? For You alone are holy; for all the
nations will come and worship before You, for Your righteous acts have been
5 After these things I looked, and
the temple of the tabernacle of testimony in heaven was opened, 6 and
the seven angels who had the seven plagues came out of the temple, clothed in
linen, clean and bright, and girded around their chests with golden sashes.
7 Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven
golden bowls full of the wrath of God, who lives forever and ever. 8
And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from His power;
and no one was able to enter the temple until the seven plagues of the seven
angels were finished.
