No matter how long it took to cross. The Israel people might have camped in the open sea. The main thing is that as the whole group of people was exiting from the open sea, the Egypt army was already in the open sea being faster in their horses chariots, gave chase and perished.

The Bible does not really answer this question, although the story implies a fairly quick passage. But we can do some calculations to determine how long it would have taken.

I have interpreted this question as asking how long all the Israelites would take to cross, rather than how long each individual would take to cross from one side to the other. On that basis, we ask the total number of people who were crossing, and how many would pass a given point in an arbitrary period of time.


The Bible says that there were 600,000 fighting men. Scholars calculate that this would mean at least 2.5 million Israelites, including women, children, priests and the elderly. The Bible also says that the Israelites had cattle, which would also have been driven across.


Travelling several persons abreast, we could start by assuming that on average one person crossed every second, day and night for twenty four hours a day. Two and a half million people would take up to a month to cross. In a more practical calculation, it would take this many people, including the elderly, sick, inform and pregnant women anything up to a year to cross, taking their cattle and wagons with them, even with no obstacles on a firm seabed.

In order to address the Question, we would have to know the site and precise direction of the crossing of the Sea of Reeds. This is no longer known.See also the Related Links.
