As the children of Israel leave Egypt they go south from Rames to Succoth (v. 37) which is along the western side of the Red Sea. It states that there were 600,000 Israelite men plus women and children. Therefore it is estimated that the entire group must have surpassed two million. They had multiplied, to this number during the 430 years they had been in the land, from 70 when they entered (vv. 38-42).
In addition to the over two million Israelites there were an un-designated number of non-Israelites. This mixed multitude was probably made up of Egyptians and those from other nations who resided in Egypt. They may have come along for a variety of reasons but it seems Satan had failed to keep them from accompanying Israel to Canaan. However, it was this group, that later in the wilderness, caused the Israelites to complain against Moses.
Further instructions were given concerning the celebration of the Passover, which was a time to remember their deliverance (vv. 43-51). Here we are told that three classes of people were forbidden from eating the Passover. First, no stranger was to eat thereof (v. 43). Second, no foreigner or hired servant should eat the Passover (v.45). Third, no un-circumcised person was to eat thereof (v. 48).
I thank God for great memories of what He has allowed us to do for His glory over the years but I’m more excited about what He wants to do in our lives now and in the days ahead should He tarry.
