The signs God did through Moses and Aaron had a purpose beyond discrediting Egypt’s gods or convincing Pharaoh to release the children of Israel from slavery.

 

Psalm 105:26-27, 37-45

He sent Moses His servant,
And Aaron whom He had chosen.

They performed His signs among them,
And wonders in the land of Ham.

He also brought them out with silver and gold,
And there was none feeble among His tribes.

Egypt was glad when they departed,
For the fear of them had fallen upon them.

He spread a cloud for a covering,
And fire to give light in the night.

The Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light (Exodus 13: 21).

The Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light.

The people asked, and He brought quail,
And satisfied them with the bread of heaven.

The Gathering of the Manna.

The Gathering of the Manna.

He opened the rock, and water gushed out;
It ran in the dry places like a river.

For He remembered His holy promise,
And Abraham His servant.

He brought out His people with joy,
His chosen ones with gladness.

He gave them the lands of the Gentiles,
And they inherited the labor of the nations,
That they might observe His statutes
And keep His laws.

Praise the Lord!

 

Israel’s deliverance from Egypt was a dramatic demonstration of God’s faithfulness.  Yes, God delivered His Chosen People from bondage, but He also led them through the wilderness and into the land He promised Abraham 400 years earlier. The psalm appropriately concludes with a hearty “praise the Lord!”
