11 “Who(A) is like You, O Lord, among the [a]gods?
Who is like You, (B)glorious in holiness,
Fearful in (C)praises, (D)doing wonders?
12 You stretched out Your right hand;
The earth swallowed them.
13 You in Your mercy have (E)led forth
The people whom You have redeemed;
You have guided them in Your strength
To (F)Your holy habitation.

Trembling will take hold of them;
(L)All the inhabitants of Canaan will (M)melt away.
16 (N)Fear and dread will fall on them;
By the greatness of Your arm
They will be (O)as still as a stone,
Till Your people pass over, O Lord,
Till the people pass over
(P)Whom You have purchased.
17 You will bring them in and (Q)plant them
In the (R)mountain of Your inheritance,
In the place, O Lord, which You have made
For Your own dwelling,
The (S)sanctuary, O Lord, which Your hands have established.

The Song of Miriam(W)

20 Then Miriam (X)the prophetess, (Y)the sister of Aaron, (Z)took the timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her (AA)with timbrels and with dances. 21 And Miriam (AB)answered them:

(AC)“Sing to the Lord,
For He has triumphed gloriously!
The horse and its rider
He has thrown into the sea!”

Bitter Waters Made Sweet

22 So Moses brought Israel from the Red Sea; then they went out into the Wilderness of (AD)Shur. And they went three days in the wilderness and found no (AE)water. 23 Now when they came to (AF)Marah, they could not drink the waters of Marah, for they were bitter. Therefore the name of it was called [c]Marah. 24 And the people (AG)complained against Moses, saying, “What shall we drink?” 25 So he cried out to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a tree. (AH)When he cast it into the waters, the waters were made sweet.

There He (AI)made a statute and an [d]ordinance for them, and there (AJ)He tested them, 26 and said, (AK)“If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the (AL)diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord (AM)who heals you.”

27 (AN)Then they came to Elim, where there were twelve wells of water and seventy palm trees; so they camped there by the waters.

The Ten Commandments(A)

20 And God spoke (B)all these words, saying:

(C)“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, (D)out of the house of [a]bondage.

(E)“You shall have no other gods before Me.

(F)“You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; (G)you shall not bow down to them nor [b]serve them. (H)For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, (I)visiting[c] the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but (J)showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

(K)“You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord (L)will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.

(M)“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. (N)Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the (O)seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, (P)nor your stranger who is within your gates. 11 For (Q)in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.

12 (R)“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be (S)long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.

13 (T)“You shall not murder.

14 (U)“You shall not commit (V)adultery.

15 (W)“You shall not steal.

16 (X)“You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

17 (Y)“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; (Z)you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”

The People Afraid of God’s Presence

18 Now (AA)all the people (AB)witnessed the thunderings, the lightning flashes, the sound of the trumpet, and the mountain (AC)smoking; and when the people saw it, they trembled and stood afar off. 19 Then they said to Moses, (AD)“You speak with us, and we will hear; but (AE)let not God speak with us, lest we die.”

20 And Moses said to the people, (AF)“Do not fear; (AG)for God has come to test you, and (AH)that His fear may be before you, so that you may not sin.” 21 So the people stood afar off, but Moses drew near (AI)the thick darkness where God was.

The Law of the Altar

22 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: ‘You have seen that I have talked with you (AJ)from heaven. 23 You shall not make anything to be (AK)with Me—gods of silver or gods of gold you shall not make for yourselves. 24 An altar of (AL)earth you shall make for Me, and you shall sacrifice on it your burnt offerings and your peace offerings, (AM)your sheep and your oxen. In every (AN)place where I [d]record My name I will come to you, and I will (AO)bless you. 25 And (AP)if you make Me an altar of stone, you shall not build it of hewn stone; for if you (AQ)use your tool on it, you have profaned it. 26 Nor shall you go up by steps to My altar, that your (AR)nakedness may not be exposed on it.’
