1Then Moses and the people of Israel sang this song to the Lord, saying,

“I will sing to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously;

the horse and his rider he has thrown into the sea.

2The Lord is my strength and my song,

and he has become my salvation;

this is my God, and I will praise him,

my father’s God, and I will exalt him.

3The Lord is a man of war;

the Lord is his name.

4“Pharaoh’s chariots and his host he cast into the sea;

and his picked officers are sunk in the Red Sea.

5The floods cover them;

they went down into the depths like a stone.

6Thy right hand, O Lord, glorious in power,

thy right hand, O Lord, shatters the enemy.

7In the greatness of thy majesty thou overthrowest thy adversaries;

thou sendest forth thy fury, it consumes them like stubble.

8At the blast of thy nostrils the waters piled up,

the floods stood up in a heap;

the deeps congealed in the heart of the sea.

9The enemy said, ‘I will pursue, I will overtake,

I will divide the spoil, my desire shall have its fill of them.

I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.’

10Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them;

they sank as lead in the mighty waters.

11“Who is like thee, O Lord, among the gods?

Who is like thee, majestic in holiness,

terrible in glorious deeds, doing wonders?

12Thou didst stretch out thy right hand,

the earth swallowed them.

13“Thou hast led in thy steadfast love the people whom thou hast redeemed,

thou hast guided them by thy strength to thy holy abode.

14The peoples have heard, they tremble;

pangs have seized on the inhabitants of Philistia.

15Now are the chiefs of Edom dismayed;

the leaders of Moab, trembling seizes them;

all the inhabitants of Canaan have melted away.

16Terror and dread fall upon them;

because of the greatness of thy arm, they are as still as a stone,

till thy people, O Lord, pass by,

till the people pass by whom thou hast purchased.

17Thou wilt bring them in, and plant them on thy own mountain,

the place, O Lord, which thou hast made for thy abode,

the sanctuary, O Lord, which thy hands have established.

18The Lord will reign for ever and ever.”

19For when the horses of Pharaoh with his chariots and his horsemen went into the sea, the Lord brought back the waters of the sea upon them; but the people of Israel walked on dry ground in the midst of the sea. 20Then Miriam, the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and dancing. 21And Miriam sang to them:

“Sing to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously;

the horse and his rider he has thrown into the sea.”

22Then Moses led Israel onward from the Red Sea, and they went into the wilderness of Shur; they went three days in the wilderness and found no water. 23When they came to Marah, they could not drink the water of Marah because it was bitter; therefore it was named Marah. 24And the people murmured against Moses, saying, “What shall we drink?” 25And he cried to the Lord; and the Lord showed him a tree, and he threw it into the water, and the water became sweet.

There the Lord made for them a statute and an ordinance and there he proved them, 26saying, “If you will diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord your God, and do that which is right in his eyes, and give heed to his commandments and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases upon you which I put upon the Egyptians; for I am the Lord, your healer.”

27Then they came to Elim, where there were twelve springs of water and seventy palm trees; and they encamped there by the water.
