After the ten plagues, Pharaoh allowed the Israelites to leave Egypt for the wilderness to worship their God. Later, when Pharaoh realized that the Israelites had left for good, he regretted for allowing them to go. The Israelites were guarded by the Lord by a pillar of cloud during the day and pillar of fire by night. Pharaoh quickly organized his soldiers and chariots to chase the Israelites with the hope of bringing them back. They caught up with them at Pihahiroth where they had encamped in front of the sea. When the Egyptians drew nearer, the Israelites became afraid and panicked, displaying lack of faith in God and Moses. They cried to the Lord and began to accuse Moses for bringing them into the wilderness to die. They said that they should have been left in Egypt to serve the Egyptians than to die in the wilderness Moses told them not to entertain any fear but to stand firm for the Lord would fight for them Moses again said that in no time they would not see the Egyptians again. Moses then cried to God and he was told by God to stretch his rod over the sea. After that a great wind came and drove back the waters The Israelites passed through on dry land/ground The Egyptians gave them a hot chase, but the wheels of their chariots could not move Moses immediately stretched his rod over the sea and the waters returned leading to the drowning of the Egyptians.

Hophni and Phinehas were the sons of Eli who was the priest of God at Shiloh. They were also priests of the Lord.
The Bible describes the children of Eli as worthless men who had no regard for the Lord. They committed several sins against the Lord. They disregarded the custom regarding sacrifice to the Lord and instead of taking their share, they took what the three-pronged fork could collect from the pot. Contrary to the custom, they demanded, with force, raw meat from those offering sacrifice, before the fat was burned. They lay with women who served at the entrance of the gate.
Though Eli warned his children about the above evils, he did not take strict measures to stop the children from the evil acts. As a result of his weak corrective measures, the children did not listen to him, but continued in their evil ways. The attitude of the children towards the Lord resulted in a man of God coming to Eli to prophesy doom for his house, stating that the priesthood would be cut off from Eli’s house and the family destroyed to the extent that no old man would exist in it for ever and any survivor of this disaster would beg bread from the new and faithful priests to be raised by God. As a sign for the fulfilment of the prophesy, the sons of Eli would die on the same day.

On the day of Pentecost, the disciples were together in one place. Suddenly, a sound came from heaven like the rush of a mighty wind, and filled the house where they were sitting. Immediately, there appeared to them tongues as of fire, resting on each of them. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak in other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
The sound of the wind attracted a great multitude, including the Jews and devout men from different nations, who were then dwelling in Jerusalem. These people were amazed at what they saw, especially the foreigners who heard the disciples speaking in their own local languages. Strangely enough, the disciples were all Galileans.
