10 Was it not you who dried up the sea,
the waters of the great deep,
who made a road in the depths of the sea
so that the redeemed might cross over?
Here Isaiah captures a type of redemption by pointing us to the story of Exodus and the parting of the Red Sea.
- The redeemed, a predestined people. Isaiah points us to Abraham’s calling in the previous verses.
- Dissatisfied and unhappy in the world. They had lost their faith in everything.
- Shaw shanking Egypt.
- A redeemer, YHWH ALONE as our Redeemer. Not Moses, not Joshua and not the people.
- A mediator, a middleman, found in the staff. Something to bridge the infinite gap between the Holy One of Israel and the people of Israel. Although Isaiah does not highlight this.
