6. The Exodus
1: The Israelites have gone... despite having lived off our land for over 400 years.
2: Do I really have no choice in this matter? How will my great land retain its reputation, after letting them spit in our face like this?
1: They must pay!
2: In the name of the pride of all of Egypt,
3: we must mobilize!
4: Yes, sire!
5: Chase down the Israelites! They must not escape!
6: Chase them down and make them sorry for what they've done!
1: We've almost reached the Sea of Reeds.
2: If we cross it, will near our homeland.
4: I thought I would be ending my life as a slave, but now we can finally proudly worship the LORD as we please!
5: It's so wonderful!
6: And it's all thanks to you, Moses!
7: We'll follow you through any hardship!
2: Something's coming...
3: What is that?
5: The Pharaoh's army!
6: There they are!
8: We've caught up with them!
1: The Egyptians are coming to attack us!
2: I knew it! I knew there was no way they'd just let us leave like this! They're angry now! We're all going to die!
3: They're seriously coming to attack us!
7: We're backed up against the sea!
8: There's nowhere to run!
1: Here comes the Egyptians! In full force! Are we all going to die here?
2: I don't want to die! Did we escape only to perish here?
3: This is all your fault, Moses!
4: I'd rather live as a slave in Egypt than die like this!
5: Moses! What are you going to do for us now?
6: This is what we get for listening to him!
1: They're only thinking of themselves... but I must save them all! It's the LORD's will!
2: Please give me strength!
1: Ah... aahhh!
2: The water...
3: The sea!
1: Aaahhh! The sea... the sea is splitting in two!
2: A path appeared!
1: Now, everyone, we must cross it!
2: Waaah! We're crossing the sea!
3: We can escape!
4: We can make it!
5: Onward to the promised land!
1: The sea parted? What is the meaning of this?
2: Something must be protecting them!
3: After them!
5: If the sea has parted and created a way for them, then we should be able to use it as well!
6: Now, chase them down and kill them all!
1: Y-yes, sire!
2: After them!
3: We're almost there!
5: The Egyptians are coming after us! Hiiieeee!
1: Oh no! They're going to catch us!
4: We're all going to die!
5: I knew we never should have run!
6: If we apologize now, they may forgive us! Let's go back!
3: It's coming back down!
5: Ah... aaiiiee!
1: Now, all of you.
2: Let us go.
3: Y... yes!
4: Let us go!
1: And so, the Israelites returned to their homeland, for the first time in 430 years since the time of Joseph.
2: According to one source, there were 600,000 adult males alone. However... their journey proved to be one of great sufferance and peril.
1: About The Exodus
2: In this chapter, I drew deep pools of water rising up like walls around Moses...
4: This scene has been imprinted in my mind ever since I saw "The Ten Commandments" when I was little.
5: But what if it was actually like this?
6: The water went all the way back to the shore...
7: Or like this?
8: The tide pulled back and left the ground all mushy...
9: Who knows!
10: According to one source, humans were able to walk across, but the ground was so muddy that it prevented the Egyptian forces from moving any further.
11: There's no way we'll make it! Let's turn back!
1: There are also varying opinions on which route Moses took out of Egypt.
3: Route #1
4: Sinai Peninsula
5: Route #2
6: Gulf of Aqaba
7: Suez Canal
8: Mediterranean Sea
9: Nile River
11: Incidentally, the sea they crossed has been traditionally translated as the "Red Sea," but a modern, direct translation from Hebrew named it the "sea of reeds."
12: There are three different theories about where the "sea of reeds" was actually located.
13: There are many places around the globe that were once oceanic regions, but lost all their water and became crossable due to certain conditions. Moon gravity can cause tides to recede, so perhaps Moses and his people utilized one of these situations to escape? That's what some people say, anyway.
14: The ocean will now part!
15: Jindo Island (Korea)
