Exodus 14:16

Context
14:16 And as for you, 1  lift up your staff and extend your hand toward the sea and divide it, so that 2  the Israelites may go through the middle of the sea on dry ground.

1 tn The conjunction plus pronoun (“and you”) is emphatic – “and as for you” – before the imperative “lift up.” In contrast, v. 17 begins with “and as for me, I….”

2 tn The imperfect (or jussive) with the vav (ו) is sequential, coming after the series of imperatives instructing Moses to divide the sea; the form then gives the purpose (or result) of the activity – “that they may go.”
