“I will sing to Yahweh, for he has triumphed gloriously.
The horse and his rider he has thrown into the sea.
He has become my salvation.
This is my God, and I will praise him;
my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
Yahweh is his name.
His chosen captains are sunk in the Red Sea*.
They went down into the depths like a stone.
Your right hand, Yahweh, dashes the enemy in pieces.
You send forth your wrath. It consumes them as stubble.
The floods stood upright as a heap.
The deeps were congealed in the heart of the sea.
My desire shall be satisfied on them.
I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.’
The sea covered them.
They sank like lead in the mighty waters.
Who is like you, glorious in holiness,
fearful in praises, doing wonders?
The earth swallowed them.
You have guided them in your strength to your holy habitation.
Pangs have taken hold on the inhabitants of Philistia.
Trembling takes hold of the mighty men of Moab.
All the inhabitants of Canaan are melted away.
By the greatness of your arm they are as still as a stone—
until your people pass over, Yahweh,
until the people pass over who you have purchased.
the place, Yahweh, which you have made for yourself to dwell in;
the sanctuary, Lord, which your hands have established.
19 For the horses of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and Yahweh brought back the waters of the sea on them; but the children of Israel walked on dry land in the midst of the sea. 20 Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a tambourine in her hand; and all the women went out after her with tambourines and with dances. 21 Miriam answered them,
“Sing to Yahweh, for he has triumphed gloriously.
The horse and his rider he has thrown into the sea.”
22 Moses led Israel onward from the Red Sea†, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water. 23 When they came to Marah, they couldn’t drink from the waters of Marah, for they were bitter. Therefore its name was called Marah.‡ 24 The people murmured against Moses, saying, “What shall we drink?” 25 Then he cried to Yahweh. Yahweh showed him a tree, and he threw it into the waters, and the waters were made sweet. There he made a statute and an ordinance for them, and there he tested them; 26 and he said, “If you will diligently listen to the voice of Yahweh your God, and will do that which is right in his eyes, and will pay attention to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you, which I have put on the Egyptians; for I am Yahweh who heals you.”
27 They came to Elim, where there were twelve springs of water, and seventy palm trees: and they encamped there by the waters.
