11 Lord, who is like You among the gods?

Who is like You, glorious in holiness, a

revered with praises, performing wonders? b

12 You stretched out Your right hand,

and the earth swallowed them.

13 You will lead the people

You have redeemed

with Your faithful love;

You will guide them to Your holy dwelling

with Your strength. c

14 When the peoples hear, they will shudder;

anguish will seize the inhabitants of Philistia.

15 Then the chiefs of Edom will be terrified; d

trembling will seize the leaders of Moab;

the inhabitants of Canaan will panic;

16 and terror e and dread will fall on them.

They will be as still f as a stone

because of Your powerful arm

until Your people pass by, Lord,

until the people whom You purchased g pass by. h

17 You will bring them in and plant them

on the mountain of Your possession; i

Lord, You have prepared the place

for Your dwelling;

Lord, j Your hands have established the sanctuary.

18 The Lord will reign k forever and ever!

19 When Pharaoh’s horses with his chariots and horsemen went into the sea, the Lord brought the waters of the sea back over them. But the Israelites walked through the sea on dry ground. 20 Then Miriam the prophetess, l Aaron’s sister, took a tambourine in her hand, and all the women followed her with their tambourines and danced. m 21 Miriam sang to them:

Sing to the Lord,

for He is highly exalted;

He has thrown the horse

and its rider into the sea.

Water Provided

22 Then Moses led Israel on from the Red Sea, and they went out to the Wilderness of Shur. They journeyed for three days in the wilderness without finding water. 23 They came to Marah, but they could not drink the water at Marah because it was bitter—that is why it was named Marah. n 24 The people grumbled to Moses, “What are we going to drink?” o 25 So he cried out to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a tree. When he threw it into the water, the water became drinkable.

He made a statute and ordinance for them at Marah and He tested them there. p 26 He said, “If you will carefully obey the Lord your God, do what is right in His eyes, pay attention to His commands, and keep all His statutes, I will not inflict any illnesses on you that I inflicted on the Egyptians. For I am Yahweh who heals you.” q

27 Then they came to Elim, where there were 12 springs of water and 70 date palms, and they camped there by the waters.
