The Song of Moses

15 Then Moses and the people of Israel (A)sang this song to the Lord, saying,

(B)“I will sing to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously;
    the horse and his rider[a] he has thrown into the sea.
(C)The Lord is my strength and my (D)song,
    and he has become (E)my salvation;
this is my God, and I will praise him,
    (F)my father's God, and (G)I will exalt him.
The Lord is (H)a man of war;
    (I)the Lord is his name.

(J)“Pharaoh's chariots and his host he cast into the sea,
    and his chosen (K)officers were sunk in the Red Sea.
The (L)floods covered them;
    they (M)went down into the depths like a stone.
(N)Your right hand, O Lord, glorious in power,
    your right hand, O Lord, (O)shatters the enemy.
In the (P)greatness of your majesty you overthrow your adversaries;
    you send out your fury; it (Q)consumes them like stubble.
At the (R)blast of your nostrils the waters piled up;
    the (S)floods stood up in a heap;
    the deeps congealed in the heart of the sea.
The enemy said, (T)‘I will pursue, I will overtake,
    I (U)will divide the spoil, my desire shall have its fill of them.
    I will draw my sword; my hand shall destroy them.’
10 You (V)blew with your wind; the (W)sea covered them;
    they sank like lead in the mighty waters.

11 (X)“Who is like you, O Lord, among the gods?
    Who is like you, majestic in holiness,
    awesome in (Y)glorious deeds, (Z)doing wonders?
12 You stretched out (AA)your right hand;
    the earth swallowed them.

13 “You have (AB)led in your steadfast love the people whom (AC)you have redeemed;
    you have (AD)guided them by your strength to your holy abode.
14 (AE)The peoples have heard; they tremble;
    pangs have seized the inhabitants of Philistia.
15 Now are the chiefs of Edom (AF)dismayed;
    trembling seizes the leaders of (AG)Moab;
    (AH)all the inhabitants of Canaan have melted away.
16 Terror and (AI)dread fall upon them;
    because of the greatness of your arm, they are still (AJ)as a stone,
till your people, O Lord, pass by,
    till the people pass by whom (AK)you have purchased.
17 You will bring them in and (AL)plant them on your own mountain,
    the place, O Lord, which you have made for your abode,
    (AM)the sanctuary, O Lord, which your hands have established.
18 (AN)The Lord will reign forever and ever.”
