KJV Exodus 14:21 And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.
This is important, Thomas. Imagine if the verse just said this (no mention of the wind):
KJV Exodus 14:21 And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.
Think how much stronger the case would be for a spectacular ‘vertical’ parting of the water if the word “wind” did not appear here or in ch. 15 (vv. 8, 10).
H Family, there is no evil in noting where the biblical narrative specifies a natural agent by which God worked His will. This is so common in biblical history as to be normal… plagues, disease, lightning, storm, wind, earthquake, drought, famine, war.
