Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt. The book of Exodus says that the Lord had Moses lead the people of Israel. Moses used a staff to split the Red Sea, so they could pass through safely.

According to the book of Exodus, the Lord provided the Israelites with unleavened bread that fell from the sky as they journeyed across Egypt to safety. Throughout their journey, many would become restless and cry out to Moses to try to find out why he had them follow him. Moses would take the concerns to the Lord, and repeatedly, God would save the Israelites from demise.
