The Song of Moses and Israel

1 aThen Moses and the sons of Israel sang this song to the Lord, 1and said,

2bI will sing to the Lord, for He 3is highly exalted;

cThe horse and its rider He has hurled into the sea.

2 “1aThe Lord is my strength and song,

And He has become my salvation;

bThis is my God, and I will praise Him;

cMy father’s God, and I will dextol Him.

3 “aThe Lord is a warrior;

1bThe Lord is His name.

And the choicest of his officers are 1drowned in the 2Red Sea.

5 “The deeps cover them;

aThey went down into the depths like a stone.

6 “aYour right hand, O Lord, is majestic in power,

bYour right hand, O Lord, shatters the enemy.

7 “And in the greatness of Your 1excellence You aoverthrow those who rise up against You;

bYou send forth Your burning anger, and it cconsumes them as chaff.

8 “aAt the blast of Your nostrils the waters were piled up,

bThe flowing waters stood up like a heap;

The deeps were congealed in the heart of the sea.

9 “aThe enemy said, ‘I will pursue, I will overtake, I will bdivide the spoil;

My 1desire shall be 2gratified against them;

I will draw out my sword, my hand will 3destroy them.’

10 “aYou blew with Your wind, the sea covered them;

bThey sank like lead in the 1mighty waters.

11 “aWho is like You among the gods, O Lord?

Who is like You, bmajestic in holiness,

cAwesome in praises, dworking wonders?

12 “aYou stretched out Your right hand,

The earth swallowed them.

13 “In Your lovingkindness You have aled the people whom You have bredeemed;

In Your strength You have guided them cto Your holy habitation.

14 “aThe peoples have heard, they tremble;

Anguish has gripped the inhabitants of Philistia.

15 “Then the achiefs of Edom were dismayed;

bThe leaders of Moab, trembling grips them;

cAll the inhabitants of Canaan have melted away.

16 “aTerror and dread fall upon them;

bBy the greatness of Your arm they are motionless as stone;

Until Your people pass over, O Lord,

Until the people pass over whom You chave purchased.

17 “aYou will bring them and bplant them in cthe mountain of Your inheritance,

dThe place, O Lord, which You have made for Your dwelling,

eThe sanctuary, O Lord, which Your hands have established.

18 “aThe Lord shall reign forever and ever.”

19 aFor the horses of Pharaoh with his chariots and his horsemen went into the sea, and the Lord brought back the waters of the sea on them, but the sons of Israel walked on bdry land through the midst of the sea.

20 aMiriam the prophetess, Aaron’s sister, took the btimbrel in her hand, and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with 1cdancing.

aSing to the Lord, for He 1is highly exalted;

The horse and his rider He has hurled into the sea.”
