I was asked to show how the Lord God captained His host that left Egypt to show how God  helps His people in battle.  Exodus 12: 41 referred to this company as follows:

And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.

As Captain of the host, He plagued Pharaoh and the Egyptians finally drowning them in the Red Sea. This is what the children of Israel sang of their Captain in Exodus 15:

  • He hath triumphed gloriously
  • He is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation.
  • The LORD [is] a man of war, Pharaoh’s chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea.
  • Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.
  • In the greatness of thine excellency thou hast overthrown them that rose up against thee: thou sentest forth thy wrath, [which] consumed them as stubble.
  • Who [is] like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who [is] like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful [in] praises, doing wonders?
  •  Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people [which] thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided [them] in thy strength unto thy holy habitation.
  • The people shall hear, [and] be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina
  • Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be [as] still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O LORD, till the people pass over, [which] thou hast purchased.
  • Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away
  • The LORD shall reign for ever and ever.
  • Sing ye to the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.

Blessed be the name of the LORD of Hosts. Holy is His name.
