וישובו המים. שהיו חומות: AND THE WATERS RETURNED. The waters that were walls returned.
עד אחד. אפי' אחד לא נמלט. וכן והנה לא מת ממקנה ישראל עד אחד. והמשורר אמר אחד מהם לא נותר: SO MUCH AS ONE OF THEM. Even one of them did not escape.137In other words, ad echead (literally, until one) means so much as one. Similarly ad echad in and, behold, there was not so much as one (ad echad) of the cattle of the Israelites dead (Ex. 9:7). Indeed, the poet says, There was not one of them (echad me-hem) left (Ps. 106: 11).138We thus see that ad echead means so much as one.
