Dividing the Waters

The Lord divided the waters at least five different times as reported in the scriptures. Most of us know about the Red Sea, but there were others.

The Lord Divided The Waters
Occurrence  Where Reference
1 Sea “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.” (Exodus 14:22 KJV)
2 Jordan River “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.” (Exodus 14:22 KJV)
3 Jordan River “And Elijah took his mantle, and wrapped it together, and smote the waters, and they were divided hither and thither, so that they two went over on dry ground.” (2 Kings 2:8 KJV)
