Pharoah and the Red Sea

In the classic film, "The Ten Commandments," Pharaoh watched his army, chariots and all, suffer complete destruction in the Red Sea after the children of Israel safely cross over. But is this the case? No, it is not. Although the text in Exodus 14:17-18 sounds like Pharaoh died there, we have more absolute proof in the Psalms. Paslm 136:15 states, "But overthrew Pharaoh and his host in the Red sea: for his mercy endureth for ever." Pharaoh died with his army in the Red Sea. To parapharse Romans 3:4, let God be true and every movie be wrong.
