15 At that time Moses and the Israelites sang this song to Jehovah:+
“Let me sing to Jehovah, for he has become highly exalted.+
The horse and its rider he has hurled into the sea.+
2 My strength and my might is Jah,* since he has become my salvation.+
This is my God, and I will praise him;+ my father’s God,+ and I will exalt him.+
3 Jehovah is a powerful warrior.+ Jehovah is his name.+
4 Pharʹaoh’s chariots and his army He has cast into the sea,+
And his finest warriors have sunk into the Red Sea.+
5 The surging waters covered them; down into the depths they sank like a stone.+
6 Your right hand, O Jehovah, is great in power;+
Your right hand, O Jehovah, can shatter an enemy.
7 In your great majesty you can throw down those who rise up against you;+
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!’+
10 You blew with your breath, the sea covered them;+
They sank like lead in majestic waters.
11 Who among the gods is like you, O Jehovah?+
Who is like you, showing yourself mighty in holiness?+
The One to be feared with songs of praise, the One doing wonders.+
12 You stretched out your right hand, and the earth swallowed them up.+
13 In your loyal love you have led the people whom you have redeemed;+
In your strength you will guide them to your holy place of dwelling.
14 Peoples must hear;+ they will shudder;
Anguish* will seize the inhabitants of Phi·lisʹti·a.
15 At that time the sheikhs* of Eʹdom will be terrified,
And trembling will take hold of the mighty rulers* of Moʹab.+
All the inhabitants of Caʹnaan will be disheartened.+
16 Fear and dread will fall upon them.+
Because of the greatness of your arm they will be as motionless as a stone
Until your people pass by, O Jehovah,
Until the people whom you produced+ pass by.+
17 You will bring them and plant them in the mountain of your inheritance,+
The established place that you have prepared for yourself to inhabit, O Jehovah,
A sanctuary, O Jehovah, that your hands have established.
18 Jehovah will rule as king forever and ever.+
19 When Pharʹaoh’s horses with his war chariots and his cavalrymen went into the sea,+
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.”+
20 Then Mirʹi·am the prophetess, Aaron’s sister, took a tambourine in her hand, and all the women followed her with tambourines and with dances. 21 Mirʹi·am sang in response to the men:
“Sing to Jehovah, for he has become highly exalted.+
The horse and its rider he has hurled into the sea.”+
