If verses 1 and 2 remind us of Exodus 14 and 15, verse 3 is reminiscent of Elim, which is mentioned in the last verse of chapter 15. The Elim wells were very welcome and refreshing but here is something far more wonderful, of which Elim was only a faint type, since the salvation that Israel will then receive will be not only of a temporal sort but also spiritual and eternal.
Our short chapter ends with praise in view of that which will be the very climax of their blessing— the “Holy One of Israel” in the midst of them. This was foreshadowed when, redeemed from Egypt, the Tabernacle was erected in their midst with the cloud of glory resting on it. This which will be brought to pass “in that day” will far exceed what was accomplished under Moses. With this striking prophecy a definite division of the book reaches its close.
