Exo 14:13 And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.
The Bible in the King James or Authorized Version has the expression “Fear not” 62 times. The similar expression “Fear ye not” used here occurs 8 times.
This Exodus account is doubted by skeptics. They say there is no historical record outside the Bible and no archaeological evidence that the exodus from Egypt ever took place.
My answer to that objection is twofold: (1) skeptics have not read widely and deeply enough to become knowledgeable about what evidences there are that do support the historicity of the Bible account (they haven’t bothered to read what K. Kitchen wrote in his book The Reliability of the Old Testament); (2) they have never answered the four arguments for historicity made by Charles Leslie in his book, Leslie’s Short and Easy Method with the Deists, which I have summarized and even simplified its English to make it easier reading for modern readers right here on this site ( https://www.realbiblestudy.com/?s=Leslie ). Leslie poses the question, how is it that an entire nation (Israel) could be imposed upon to accept a story of alleged history either at the time it happened or any time after if it were not true–especially since the history accounts for practices they have maintained from that day to this in an unbroken manner? I have referred atheists and unbelievers to the appropriate link on this site and challenged them to provide an answer or refutation of Leslie’s argument. So far, not one has ever attempted to do so.
We can take consolation in the words “Fear not.” God the Father and His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, are firmly in control, come what may! (I borrowed and modified only just a little this encouraging word from Greg Hunter, who uses it at the end of each Friday’s “Weekly News Wrap-up” at his www.usawatchdog.com website).
More encouragement can be found by reading the cross-referenced Bible passages for Exodus 14:13 as given in The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge, The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge, and The Ultimate Cross Reference Treasury, which I share below:
