Exodus (Gk. ex, out, hodos, way) is the name given by the Septuagint translators to the 2nd book of the Pentateuch, since it is mainly occupied with the account of the departure of the Israelites from Egypt, with the events that immediately led up to and followed it. The authenticity of the book has been much questioned, and in the matter of arithmetic and of details it has met with considerable adverse criticism.
