Exodus 15:4

Context

15:4 The chariots of Pharaoh 1  and his army he has thrown into the sea,

and his chosen 2  officers were drowned 3  in the Red Sea.

1 tn Gesenius notes that the sign of the accusative, often omitted in poetry, is not found in this entire song (GKC 363 §117.b).

2 tn The word is a substantive, “choice, selection”; it is here used in the construct state to convey an attribute before a partitive genitive – “the choice of his officers” means his “choice officers” (see GKC 417 §128.r).

3 tn The form is a Qal passive rather than a Pual, for there is not Piel form or meaning.
