Exodus 14:15-18 (ANIV)
15 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. 16 Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground. 17 I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians so that they will go in after them. And I will gain glory through Pharaoh and all his army, through his chariots and his horsemen. 18 The Egyptians will know that I am the Lord when I gain glory through Pharaoh, his chariots and his horsemen.”
TIME OF DAY:
Late afternoon/early evening.
The main source of light in this scene is the yellow/white radiating light rays, coming from above, which I have used to visually represent God speaking to Moses. There is no indication in the scriptures that God illuminated His words to mankind with any sort of glow or heavenly light… that is simply my way of showing that God is speaking, in this cartoon!
Moses, in blue gown holding up his hands, with his wooden shepherd’s staff lying on the ground behind him.
The spiky plant in the foreground is Centaurea calcitrapa (Red Starthistle or Purple starthistle), which was also present in Scene 05 – Pursued.
I have included a Kleinmann’s (also called Egyptian, or Leith’s Tortoise) wehose Latin name is Testudo kleinmanni (or Testudo werneri)
