The Song of Moses

15 Moses and the Israelites sang this song in praise of the Lord:

I sing praises to the Lord
    for his great victory!
He has thrown the horses
and their riders
    into the sea.
The Lord is my strength,
the reason for my song,
    because he has saved me.
I praise and honor the Lord
he is my God
and the God
    of my ancestors.
The Lord is his name,
    and he is a warrior!
He threw the chariots and army
of Egypt’s king[a]
    into the Red Sea,[b]
and he drowned the best
    of the king’s officers.
They sank to the bottom
    just like stones.

With the tremendous force
of your right arm, our Lord,
    you crushed your enemies.
What a great victory was yours,
as you defeated everyone
    who opposed you.
Your fiery anger wiped them out,
    as though they were straw.
You were so furious
that the sea piled up
    like a wall,
and the ocean depths
    curdled like cheese.

Your enemies boasted
    that they would
pursue and capture us,
divide up our possessions,
treat us as they wished,
then take out their swords
    and kill us right there.
10 But when you got furious,
they sank like lead,
    swallowed by ocean waves.

11 Our Lord, no other gods
compare with you—
    Majestic and holy!
    Fearsome and glorious!
    Miracle worker!

20 Miriam the sister of Aaron was a prophet. So she took her tambourine and led the other women out to play their tambourines and to dance. 21 Then she sang to them:

“Sing praises to the Lord
    for his great victory!
He has thrown the horses
and their riders into the sea.”
