32 Also take your Flocks, and your Herds, as ye have said, and be gone : and bless me also.

33 And the Egyptians were URGENT upon the People, that they might send them out of the Land in haite : for they said, We be all DEAD MEN.

34 And the People took their Dough before it was leavened, their Kneading-troughs being bound up in their Cloaths upon their Shoulders.

35 And the Children of Israel did according to the Word of Moses: and they borrowed of the Egyptians Jewels of Silver, and Jewels of Gold, and Raiment.

36 And the Lord gave the People Favour in the Sight of the Egyptians, so that they lent unto them such Things as they required : and they spoiled the Egyptians.

37 And the Children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about fix hundred thousand on Foot that were Men, besides Children.

38 And a mixed Multitude went up also with them ; and Flocks, and Herds, even very much Cattle.

39 And they baked unleavened Cakes of the Dough, which they brought forth out of Egypt, for it was not leavened : because they were thrust out of Egypt, and could not tarry, neither had they prepared for themselves any Victual.

40 Now the sojourning of the Children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty Years.

41 And it came to pass at the End of the FOUR HUNDRED and THIRTY Years, even the seLF-SAME Day it came to pass, that all the Host of the LORD went out from the Land of Egypt.

18 But God led the People about, through the Way of the Wilderness of the Red Sea : and the Children of Israel went up harnelled out of the Land of Egypt.

19 And Moses took the Bones of Joseph with him : for he had straitly sworn the Children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you; and ye thall carry up my Bones away hence with you.

20 And they took their Journey from Succoth, and encamped in Etham, in the Edge of the Wildernars.

21 And the LORD went before them by Day in a PilLAR of a CLOUD, TO LEAD them the WAY; and by Night in a PILLAR of Fire, to give them Light: to go by Day and NIGHT.

22 And he took not away the PILLAR of the Cloud by Day, nor the Pillar of Fire by Night, from before the People.
