Exodus 14:5

Context

14:5 When it was reported 1  to the king of Egypt that the people had fled, 2  the heart of Pharaoh and his servants was turned against the people, and the king and his servants said, 3  “What in the world have we done? 4  For we have released the people of Israel 5  from serving us!”

Exodus 14:9

Context
14:9 The Egyptians chased after them, and all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh and his horsemen and his army overtook them camping by the sea, beside Pi-hahiroth, before Baal-Zephon.

1 tn Heb “and it was told.” The present translation uses “reported,” since this involves information given to a superior.

2 tn The verb must be given a past perfect translation because the fleeing occurred before the telling.

3 tn Heb “and they said.” The referent (the king and his servants) is supplied for clarity.

4 tn The question literally is “What is this we have done?” The demonstrative pronoun is used as an enclitic particle for emphasis (R. J. Williams, Hebrew Syntax, 24, §118).

5 tn Heb “released Israel.” By metonymy the name of the nation is used collectively for the people who constitute it (the Israelites).
