And moses did so in the sight of the elders of israel (vv 5-6) r c sproul explains that moses lifts the rod of judgment (as evidenced by bringing death to fish in the waters of the nile, ex 7:20-21, and pharaoh's army in the red sea, ex 14:16, 21-28) and strikes the rock on which god stands and with which he is symbolically identified.

Jehovah's message (through moses) for israel at the red sea was and moses said unto the people, fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.
