Exod. xiii. 17--22.-And it came to pass when Phara

oh had let the people go, that God led them not through
the way of the land of the Philistines, although that
was near; for God said, Left peradventure the peo-
ple repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt.
But God led the people about, through the way of the
wilderness of the Red Sea. And the children of Israel
went up harnessed out of the land of Egypt. And Mo-
ses took the bones of yoseph with him : for he had strait-
ly sworn the children of Israel, saying, God will surely
visit you ; and ye shall carry up my bones away bence
with
yoll.

And the Lord went before them, by day in a piliar 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. He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by right, from before the people.
