Exodus 15:11–27

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.

21 Miriam answered them,

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

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

The Lord Provides Water

22 aThen Moses 1led Israel from the 2Red Sea, and they went out into bthe wilderness of cShur; and they went three days in the wilderness and found no water.

23 When they came to aMarah, they could not drink the waters 1of Marah, for they were 2bitter; therefore it was named 3Marah.

24 So the people agrumbled at Moses, saying, “What shall we drink?”

25 Then he acried out to the Lord, and the Lord showed him ba tree; and he threw it into the waters, and the waters became sweet.

There He cmade for them a statute and regulation, and there He dtested them.

26 And He said, “aIf you will give earnest heed to the voice of the Lord your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear bto His commandments, and keep all His statutes, cI will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, dthe Lord, am your healer.”

27 Then they came to aElim where there were twelve springs of water and seventy date palms, and they camped there beside the waters.
