15Then Moses and the people of Israel sang this song to the LORD: "I will sing to the LORD, for he has triumphed gloriously; he has hurled both horse and rider into the sea.H7891H4872H1121H3478H7892H3068H559H559H7891H3068H1342H1342H5483H7392H7411H3220 2The LORD is my strength and my song; he has given me victory. This is my God, and I will praise him—my father's God, and I will exalt him!H3050H5797H2176H3444H2088H410H5115H1H430H7311 3The LORD is a warrior; Yahweh is his name!H3068H376H4421H3068H8034 4Pharaoh's chariots and army he has hurled into the sea. The finest of Pharaoh's officers are drowned in the Red Sea.H6547H4818H2428H3384H3220H4005H7991H2883H5488H3220 5The deep waters gushed over them; they sank to the bottom like a stone.H8415H3680H3381H4688H3644H68 6"Your right hand, O LORD, is glorious in power. Your right hand, O LORD, smashes the enemy.H3225H3068H142H3581H3225H3068H7492H341 7In the greatness of your majesty, you overthrow those who rise against you. You unleash your blazing fury; it consumes them like straw.H7230H1347H2040H6965H7971H2740H398H7179 8At the blast of your breath, the waters piled up! The surging waters stood straight like a wall; in the heart of the sea the deep waters became hard.H7307H639H4325H6192H5140H5324H5067H8415H7087H3820H3220 9"The enemy boasted, 'I will chase them and catch up with them. I will plunder them and consume them. I will flash my sword; my powerful hand will destroy them.'H341H559H7291H5381H2505H7998H5315H4390H7324H2719H3027H3423 10But you blew with your breath, and the sea covered them. They sank like lead in the mighty waters.H5398H7307H3220H3680H6749H5777H117H4325 11"Who is like you among the gods, O LORD—glorious in holiness, awesome in splendor, performing great wonders?H3068H410H142H6944H3372H8416H6213H6382 12You raised your right hand, and the earth swallowed our enemies.H5186H3225H776H1104 13"With your unfailing love you lead the people you have redeemed. In your might, you guide them to your sacred home.H2617H5148H5971H2098H1350H5095H5797H6944H5116 14The peoples hear and tremble; anguish grips those who live in Philistia.H5971H8085H7264H2427H270H3427H6429 15The leaders of Edom are terrified; the nobles of Moab tremble. All who live in Canaan melt away;H227H441H123H926H352H4124H7461H270H3427H3667H4127 16terror and dread fall upon them. The power of your arm makes them lifeless as stone until your people pass by, O LORD, until the people you purchased pass by.H367H6343H5307H1419H2220H1826H68H5971H5674H3068H5971H5674H2098H7069 17You will bring them in and plant them on your own mountain—the place, O LORD, reserved for your own dwelling, the sanctuary, O Lord, that your hands have established.H935H5193H2022H5159H4349H3068H6466H3427H4720H136H3027H3559 18The LORD will reign forever and ever!"H3068H4427H5769H5703 19When Pharaoh's horses, chariots, and charioteers rushed into the sea, the LORD brought the water crashing down on them. But the people of Israel had walked through the middle of the sea on dry ground!H5483H6547H935H7393H6571H3220H3068H7725H4325H3220H1121H3478H1980H3004H8432H3220 20Then Miriam the prophet, Aaron's sister, took a tambourine and led all the women as they played their tambourines and danced.H4813H5031H269H175H3947H8596H3027H802H3318H310H8596H4246 21And Miriam sang this song: "Sing to the LORD, for he has triumphed gloriously; he has hurled both horse and rider into the sea."H4813H6030H7891H3068H1342H1342H5483H7392H7411H3220 22Then Moses led the people of Israel away from the Red Sea, and they moved out into the desert of Shur. They traveled in this desert for three days without finding any water.H4872H5265H3478H5488H3220H3318H4057H7793H3212H7969H3117H4057H4672H4325 23When they came to the oasis of Marah, the water was too bitter to drink. So they called the place Marah (which means "bitter").H935H4785H3201H8354H4325H4785H4751H8034H7121H4785 24Then the people complained and turned against Moses. "What are we going to drink?" they demanded.H5971H3885H4872H559H8354 25So Moses cried out to the LORD for help, and the LORD showed him a piece of wood. Moses threw it into the water, and this made the water good to drink. It was there at Marah that the LORD set before them the following decree as a standard to test their faithfulness to him.H6817H3068H3068H3384H6086H7993H4325H4325H4985H7760H2706H4941H5254 26He said, "If you will listen carefully to the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in his sight, obeying his commands and keeping all his decrees, then I will not make you suffer any of the diseases I sent on the Egyptians; for I am the LORD who heals you."H559H8085H8085H6963H3068H430H6213H3477H5869H238H4687H8104H2706H7760H4245H7760H4714H3068H7495 27After leaving Marah, the Israelites traveled on to the oasis of Elim, where they found twelve springs and seventy palm trees. They camped there beside the water.H935H362H8147H6240H5869H4325H7657H8558H2583H4325
