God positioned an angel and a cloud between the Israelites and the Egyptian army. All night the Egyptian army camped in darkness, unaware of the activity on the Israelites side. Meanwhile, God drove back the waters of the Red Sea with a strong wind and it became dry land. The Israelites crossed through the Red Sea on dry land.
When the Israelites had crossed over to the other side, God lifted the cloud and the Egyptians pursued the Israelites. When the entire Egyptian army was in the middle of the Red Sea, God caused confusion within the Egyptian army. The wheels of the chariots became stuck. Some of the troops were trying to go back while others were going forward. With that, God released the waters and the entire Egyptian army was covered by the water. There were no Egyptian survivors.
