bible verse

meaning

Today, to part the water is to solve problems that are very difficult and seem unachievable .

origin and application

Moses was the prophet chosen by God to lead the people of Israel out of Egypt. As the Israelites were making their way back home, Pharoah the king of Egypt changed his mind. He sent troops to pursue the Israelites who were camping by the Red Sea. Instructed by God, Moses raised his staff and stretched out his hand over the sea to part the water. The Israelites went through the sea on dry land, “with a wall of water on their right and on their left” (Exodus 14:22). When the Egyptians arrived at the Red Sea, Moses stretched out his hand over the sea. The waters flowed back over and drowned the Egyptian soldiers. Not one of them survived.

example

Moving through the crowd in a congested pedestrian is like parting the water.
