Exodus 15:1-11Common English Bible (CEB)

Moses’ victory song

15 Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the Lord:

I will sing to the Lord, for an overflowing victory!
    Horse and rider he threw into the sea!
The Lord is my strength and my power;[a]
    he has become my salvation.
This is my God, whom I will praise,
    the God of my ancestors, whom I will acclaim.
The Lord is a warrior;
    the Lord is his name.

Pharaoh’s chariots and his army he hurled into the sea;
    his elite captains were sunk in the Reed Sea.[b]
The deep sea covered them;
    they sank into the deep waters like a stone.
Your strong hand, Lord, is dominant in power;
    your strong hand, Lord, shatters the enemy!
With your great surge you overthrow your opponents;
    you send out your hot anger; it burns them up like straw.
    With the breath of your nostrils the waters swelled up,
        the floods surged up in a great wave;
        the deep waters foamed in the depths of the sea.
The enemy said, “I’ll pursue, I’ll overtake,
    I’ll divide the spoils of war.
    I’ll be overfilled with them.
    I’ll draw my sword; my hand will destroy them.”
10 You blew with your wind; the sea covered over them.
    They sank like lead in the towering waters.
11 Who is like you among the gods, Lord?
    Who is like you, foremost in holiness,
    worthy of highest praise, doing awesome deeds?
