Exodus 14:26-31 King James Version (KJV)
26 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen.
27 And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the LORD overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea.
28 And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them.
29 But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.
30 Thus the LORD saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea shore.
31 And Israel saw that great work which the LORD did upon the Egyptians: and the people feared the LORD, and believed the LORD, and his servant Moses.

Exodus 14:26-31 Living Bible (TLB)

26 When all the Israelites were on the other side, the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand again over the sea, so that the waters will come back over the Egyptians and their chariots and horsemen.” 27 Moses did, and the sea returned to normal beneath the morning light. The Egyptians tried to flee, but the Lord drowned them in the sea. 28 The water covered the path and the chariots and horsemen. And of all the army of Pharaoh that chased after Israel through the sea, not one remained alive.
29 The people of Israel had walked through on dry land, and the waters had been walled up on either side of them. 30 Thus Jehovah saved Israel that day from the Egyptians; and the people of Israel saw the Egyptians dead, washed up on the seashore. 31 When the people of Israel saw the mighty miracle the Lord had done for them against the Egyptians, they were afraid and revered the Lord, and believed in him and in his servant Moses.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

26 This was what God wanted this may have not been the easiest thing for Moses to have done at one point being raised as the family of the Pharaoh he may have been many friends that had been in that military but things had changed since then, he learned who his people truly were and knew who God is.

27 Moses simply just held out his hand over the sea it was God that brought the water down

28 The Egyptians not being able to escape fast enough, would end up drowning in the water, this would destroy Egyptian military and also ruin any chance of the Israelites returning to Egypt in cause they got scared.

29-30 God allowed the same waters that allowed the Israelites to pass thru to cause their enemies the Egyptians to be destroyed.

31 This also would cause the Israelites to believe in God’s power even more which was important for their journey thru the wilderness. When we walk with the Lord it is important for us to have faith in Him.
