Who is like you?
You are glorious because of your holiness
and awe-inspiring because of your splendor.

The earth swallowed them.
Powerfully, you will guide them to your holy dwelling.

The powerful men of Moab will tremble.
The people of Canaan will be deathly afraid.
Because of the power of your arm, they will be petrified
until your people pass by, O Lord,
until the people you purchased pass by.
the place where you live, O Lord,
the holy place that you built with your own hands, O Lord.
“Sing to the Lord.

22 Moses led Israel away from the Red Sea into the desert of Shur. For three days they traveled in the desert without finding water. 23 When they came to Marah, they couldn’t drink the water because it tasted bitter. That’s why the place was called Marah [Bitter Place]. 24 The people complained about Moses by asking, “What are we supposed to drink?”
25 Moses cried out to the Lord, and the Lord showeda him a piece of wood. He threw it into the water, and the water became sweet.
There the Lord set down laws and rules for them to live by, and there he tested them. 26 He said, “If you will listen carefully to the Lord your God and do what he considers right, if you pay attention to his commands and obey all his laws, I will never make you suffer any of the diseases I made the Egyptians suffer, because I am the Lord, who heals you.”
