During the time of Samuel, the word of God and visions were rare. Samuel was serving God in the presence of Eli. Now, Eli’s eyes had begun to grow weak so that he was not able to see. One day when Eli was lying in his place and the lamp of God had not yet gone out, Samuel was lying in the temple of God where the ark of God was. Then the Lord called out to Samuel and he said, “Here I am!”, thinking it was Eli. He ran to Eli and said, “Here I am, because you called me.” But he said, “I did not call you. Go back and lie down.” So he went and lay down. And God called Samuel again, so Samuel got up and went to Eli and said, “Here I am, because you called me.” And he said, “I did not call you, my son. Go back and lie down.” Samuel did not yet know God, and the word of God had not yet been revealed to him. Again God called Samuel a third time, so he got up and went to Eli and said, “Here I am, because you called me.” Then Eli realized that God was calling the boy. So Eli told Samuel to go and lie down, that If the voice calls again, that he should say ‘Speak Lord, because your servant is listening.’” So Samuel went and lay down in his place.

Then God came and stood there and called out as before, “Samuel! Samuel!” And Samuel said, “Speak, because your servant is listening.” So God said to Samuel, “Look, I am doing something in Israel which will cause the two ears of everyone who hears it to tingle. On that day, I will fulfill against Eli all that I have spoken against his household, from beginning to end. I will make him know that I am about to judge his household forever because of the iniquity that he knew, for his sons were bringing curses on themselves, but he did not rebuke them. Therefore I swore to the house of Eli that the iniquity of the house of Eli would not be atoned for by sacrifice or by offering forever.”


So Samuel lay down until morning; then he opened the doors of the house of God, but Samuel was afraid of telling the vision to Eli. Then Eli called Samuel and said, “Samuel, my son!” And he said, “Here I am.” And he what the message was. And told him not to hide the message from him, else he pray that God may punish him severely if he conceal anything from him. So Samuel told him all the words and did not conceal anything from him.

And Samuel grew up, and God was with him. He did not allow any of his prophecies to go unfulfilled.

After the Plagues of Egypt, the Pharaoh agrees to let the Israelites go. The Israelites were led by a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. There, God tells Moses to turn back and camp by the sea at Pi-HaHiroth.

God causes the Pharaoh to pursue the Israelites with chariots, and the pharaoh overtakes them at Pi-hahiroth. When the Israelites saw the Egyptian army they were afraid, but the pillar of fire and the cloud separated the Israelites and the Egyptians. At God’s command, Moses held his staff out over the water, and throughout the night a strong east wind divided the sea, and the Israelites walked through on dry land with a wall of water on either side. The Egyptians pursued them, but at daybreak God clogged their chariot-wheels and threw them into a panic, and with the return of the water, the pharaoh and his entire army are destroyed. When the Israelites saw the power of God, they put their faith in God and in Moses, and sang a song of praise to the Lord for the crossing of the sea and the destruction of their enemies.
