Ten Commandments Map Summary



Ten Commandments Map and Summary information and Ten Commandments list as given by Moses.

The map tracks the route from Rahmeses to Pi Hachiroth on the Red Sea, then shows the Israelites crossing, while Pharoahs soldiers are swallowed up by the Sea. The route to Canaan then meanders for 8 years, until Moses reaches Mt Sinai and includes the scene of idolotry worship. The wanderings continue to year 33, where Kades and Moses' exodus is shown. The route then continues with a few other vignettes past the Dead Sea to Jordan in the 43rd year. Each of the years is represented by a named encampment. Large decorative cartouche.

Ten Commandments List and History Information

Exodus 14:1-2
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, that they turn and encamp before Pihahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, over against Baalzephon: before it shall ye encamp by the sea.

Exodus 14:21-22
And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.

The period of bondage given in Gen 15:13,14; Ex 12:40,41 and Gala 3:17 as 430 years has been interpreted to cover different periods. The common chronology makes it extend from the call of Abraham to the exodus, one-half of it, or 215 years, being spend in Egypt. Others make it to cover only the period of bondage spend in Egypt. St. Paul says in Ga 3:17 that from the covenant with (or call of) Abraham the giving of the law (less than a year after the exodus) was 430 years. But in Ge 15:13,14 it is said that they should be strangers in a strange land,a nd be afflicted 400 years, and nearly the same is said in Ex 12:40 But, in very truth, the children of Israel were strangers in a strange land from the time that Abraham left his home for the promised land, and during that whole period of 430 years to the exodus they were nowhere rulers in the land. So in Ex 12:40 it is said that the sojourning of the children of Israel who dwelt in Egypt was 430 years. But it does not say that the sojourning was all in Egypt, but this people who lived in Egypt had been sojourners for 430 years.
