NKJVNew King James Version
17Then it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God did not lead them by way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, “Lest perhaps the people #Ex. 14:11; Num. 14:1–4change their minds when they see war, and #Deut. 17:16return to Egypt.”
