    And then there are also poetic allusions in the Prophets:

    Isa 43:16-17 JPS  Thus saith the LORD, who maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters;  (17)  Who bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power - they lie down together, they shall not rise...
    Isa 51:10 JPS  Art thou not it that dried up the sea, the waters of the great deep; that made the depths of the sea a way for the redeemed to pass over?
    Isa 63:11-13 JPS  Then His people remembered the days of old, the days of Moses: 'Where is He that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherds of His flock? Where is He that put His holy spirit in the midst of them?  (12)  That caused His glorious arm to go at the right hand of Moses? That divided the water before them, to make Himself an everlasting name?  (13)  That led them through the deep, as a horse in the wilderness, without stumbling?

    It is important to keep all these biblical descriptions in mind when seeking the location and ‘mechanism’ for the Red Sea crossing.
