The Song of Moses

15 Then aMoses and the children of Israel sang this song to the Lord, and spoke, saying:

“I will bsing to the Lord,

For He has triumphed gloriously!

The horse and its rider

He has thrown into the sea!

2 The Lord is my strength and csong,

And He has become my salvation;

He is my God, and dI will praise Him;

My efather’s God, and I fwill exalt Him.

3 The Lord is a man of gwar;

The Lord is His hname.

4 iPharaoh’s chariots and his army He has cast into the sea;

jHis chosen captains also are drowned in the Red Sea.

5 The depths have covered them;

kThey sank to the bottom like a stone.

6 “Your lright hand, O Lord, has become glorious in power;

Your right hand, O Lord, has dashed the enemy in pieces.

7 And in the greatness of Your mexcellence

You have overthrown those who rose against You;

You sent forth nYour wrath;

It oconsumed them plike stubble.

8 And qwith the blast of Your nostrils

The waters were gathered together;

rThe floods stood upright like a heap;

The depths 1congealed in the heart of the sea.

9 sThe enemy said, ‘I will pursue,

I will overtake,

I will tdivide the spoil;

My desire shall be satisfied on them.

I will draw my sword,

My hand shall destroy them.’

10 You blew with Your wind,

The sea covered them;

They sank like lead in the mighty waters.

11 “Who uis like You, O Lord, among the 2gods?

Who is like You, vglorious in holiness,

Fearful in wpraises, xdoing wonders?

12 You stretched out Your right hand;

The earth swallowed them.

13 You in Your mercy have yled forth

The people whom You have redeemed;

You have guided them in Your strength

To zYour holy habitation.

14 “The apeople will hear and be afraid;

bSorrow 3will take hold of the inhabitants of Philistia.

15 cThen dthe chiefs of Edom will be dismayed;

eThe mighty men of Moab,

Trembling will take hold of them;

fAll the inhabitants of Canaan will gmelt away.

16 hFear and dread will fall on them;

By the greatness of Your arm

They will be ias still as a stone,

Till Your people pass over, O Lord,

Till the people pass over

jWhom You have purchased.

17 You will bring them in and kplant them

In the lmountain of Your inheritance,

In the place, O Lord, which You have made

For Your own dwelling,

The msanctuary, O Lord, which Your hands have established.

18 “The nLord shall reign forever and ever.”

19 For the ohorses of Pharaoh went with his chariots and his horsemen into the sea, and pthe Lord brought back the waters of the sea upon them. But the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea.


About The New King James Version

The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
