Scribes having fun

This week’s parsha talks about Moses parting the Reed Sea. Here is the Hebrew passage in Exodus 15 that is a song that talks about the parting of the Reed Sea. Notice how the scribes imitate the sea parting in the format of the fonts. You won’t see this in your  KJV. (The JPS makes an attempt.) That’s why it’s fun to learn Biblical Hebrew. We talk about this in our E-Vreet course “Learn Hebrew from the Bible.”
