1 Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song unto Jehovah, and spoke, saying:
I will sing unto Jehovah, for He has triumphed gloriously! The horse and its rider He has
thrown into the sea!
2 Jehovah is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation; He is my Mighty
God, and I will adorn Him; my father's God, and I will exalt Him.
3 Jehovah is a man of war; Jehovah is His name.
4 Pharaoh's chariots and his army He has cast into the sea; his chosen officers also are
drowned in the Red Sea.
5 The abyss has covered them; they have sunk to the depths like a stone.
6 Your right hand, O Jehovah, is glorious in power; Your right hand, O Jehovah, has
dashed the enemy to pieces.
7 And in the greatness of Your majesty You have overthrown those who rose against You;
You sent forth Your wrath; it consumed them like stubble.
8 And with the blast of Your nostrils the waters were heaped up; the flowing waters stood
upright like a heap; the depths hardened in the heart of the sea.
9 The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoils; my desire shall be
satisfied on them. I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.
10 You blew with Your wind, the sea covered them; they sank like lead in the mighty
11 Who is like You, O Jehovah, among the gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness,
fearful in praises, doing wonders?
12 You stretched out Your right hand; the earth swallowed them.
13 You in Your mercy have led forth the people whom You have redeemed; You have
guided them in Your strength unto Your holy habitation.
14 The people have heard and are afraid; anguish has taken hold of the inhabitants of
15 Then the chiefs of Edom have been dismayed; the mighty men of Moab, trembling
takes hold of them; all the inhabitants of Canaan have melted away.
16 Fear and dread falls upon them; by the greatness of Your arm they are as still as a
stone, till Your people pass over, O Jehovah, till the people whom You have redeemed
17 You bring them in and plant them in the mountain of Your inheritance, in the place, O
Jehovah, which You have made for Your own dwelling, the sanctuary, O Jehovah, which
Your hands have established.
18 Jehovah reigns from everlasting and forever.
19 For the horses of Pharaoh went with his chariots and his horsemen into the sea, and
Jehovah brought back the waters of the sea upon them. But the children of Israel have
walked on dry ground in the midst of the sea.
20 And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took the timbrel in her hand; and all
the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.
21 And Miriam answered them: Sing unto Jehovah, for He has risen up to be exalted! The
horse and its rider He has thrown into the sea!
22 And Moses brought Israel from the Red Sea. And they went out into the Wilderness
of Shur, and they went three days in the wilderness and found no water.
23 And when they came to Marah, they could not drink the waters of Marah, for they
were bitter. Therefore the name of it was called Marah.
24 And the people grumbled against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?
25 And he cried out unto Jehovah, and Jehovah showed him a tree. When he cast it into
the waters, the waters were made sweet. There He made a statute and an ordinance for
them. And there He tested them,
26 and said: If you diligently heed the voice of Jehovah your God and do what is right in
His eyes, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the
diseases on you which I have brought upon the Egyptians. For I am Jehovah who heals
27 And they came to Elim, where there were twelve springs of water and seventy palm
trees; so they camped there by the waters.
