“Let me sing to Jehovah, for he has become highly exalted.+
The horse and its rider he has hurled into the sea.+
And his finest warriors have sunk into the Red Sea.+
You send out your burning anger, it eats them up like stubble.
8 By a breath from your nostrils waters massed together;
They stood still, holding back the floods;
The surging waters congealed in the heart of the sea.
9 The enemy said: ‘I will pursue! I will overtake!
I will divide spoil until I am* satisfied!
I will draw my sword! My hand will subdue them!’+
Who is like you, showing yourself mighty in holiness?+
The One to be feared with songs of praise, the One doing wonders.+
In your strength you will guide them to your holy place of dwelling.
All the inhabitants of Caʹnaan will be disheartened.+
Because of the greatness of your arm they will be as motionless as a stone
Until your people pass by, O Jehovah,
The established place that you have prepared for yourself to inhabit, O Jehovah,
A sanctuary, O Jehovah, that your hands have established.
Then Jehovah brought back the waters of the sea upon them,+
But the people of Israel walked on dry ground through the midst of the sea.”+
“Sing to Jehovah, for he has become highly exalted.+
The horse and its rider he has hurled into the sea.”+
22 Moses later led Israel away from the Red Sea, and they went out to the wilderness of Shur and marched on for three days in the wilderness, but they did not find water. 23 They came to Maʹrah,*+ but they were not able to drink the water from Maʹrah because it was bitter. That is why he named it Maʹrah. 24 So the people began to murmur against Moses,+ saying: “What are we to drink?” 25 He cried out to Jehovah,+ and Jehovah directed him to a tree. When he threw it into the water, the water became sweet.
There He established for them a regulation and a case for judgment, and there He put them to the test.+ 26 He said: “If you will strictly listen to the voice of Jehovah your God and will do what is right in his eyes and will pay attention to his commandments and keep all his regulations,+ I will not bring upon you any of the diseases that I brought upon the Egyptians,+ for I, Jehovah, am healing you.”+
27 After that they came to Eʹlim, where there were 12 springs of water and 70 palm trees. So they camped there by the water.
