15 Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the Lord:
“I will sing to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously;
horse and rider he has thrown into the sea.
2 The Lord is my strength and my might,a
and he has become my salvation;
this is my God, and I will praise him,
my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
the Lord is his name.
his picked officers were sunk in the Red Sea.b
they went down into the depths like a stone.
your right hand, O Lord, shattered the enemy.
you sent out your fury, it consumed them like stubble.
the floods stood up in a heap;
the deeps congealed in the heart of the sea.
I will divide the spoil, my desire shall have its fill of them.
I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.’
they sank like lead in the mighty waters.
Who is like you, majestic in holiness,
awesome in splendor, doing wonders?
the earth swallowed them.
you guided them by your strength to your holy abode.
pangs seized the inhabitants of Philistia.
trembling seized the leaders of Moab;
all the inhabitants of Canaan melted away.
by the might of your arm, they became still as a stone
until your people, O Lord, passed by,
until the people whom you acquired passed by.
the place, O Lord, that you made your abode,
the sanctuary, O Lord, that your hands have established.
19 When the horses of Pharaoh with his chariots and his chariot drivers went into the sea, the Lord brought back the waters of the sea upon them; but the Israelites walked through the sea on dry ground.
