Exodus 15
New Heart English Bible
1Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song to God, and said, "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 song. 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.

4He has cast Pharaoh's chariots and his army into the sea. His choice officers were drowned in the Sea at the End.

5The deeps cover them. They went down into the depths like a stone.

6Your right hand, LORD, is glorious in power. Your right hand, LORD, dashes the enemy in pieces.

7In the greatness of your excellency, you overthrow those who rise up against you. You send forth your wrath. It consumes them as stubble.

8With the blast of your nostrils, the waters were piled up. The floods stood upright as a heap. The deeps were congealed in the heart of the sea.

9The enemy said, 'I will pursue. I will overtake. I will divide the spoil. My desire shall be satisfied on them. I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.'

10You blew with your wind. The sea covered them. They sank like lead in the mighty waters.

11Who is like you, LORD, among the gods? Who is like you, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?

12You stretched out your right hand. The earth swallowed them.

13"You, in your loving kindness, have led the people that you have redeemed. You have guided them in your strength to your holy habitation.

14The peoples have heard. They tremble. Pangs have taken hold on the inhabitants of Philistia.

15Then the chiefs of Edom were dismayed. Trembling takes hold of the leaders of Moab. All the inhabitants of Canaan have melted away.

16Terror and dread falls on them. By the greatness of your arm they are as still as a stone--until your people pass over, LORD, until the people pass over who you have purchased.

17You shall bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of your inheritance, the place, LORD, which you have made for yourself to dwell in; the sanctuary, LORD, which your hands have established.

18The LORD shall reign forever and ever."

19For the horses of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and the LORD brought back the waters of the sea on them; but the children of Israel walked on dry land in the midst of the sea.

20Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a tambourine in her hand; and all the women went out after her with tambourines and with dances.

21Miriam answered them, "Sing to the LORD, for he has triumphed gloriously. The horse and his rider he has thrown into the sea."

22Moses led Israel onward from the Sea at the End, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water. 23When they came to Marah, they couldn't drink from the waters of Marah, for they were bitter. Therefore its name was called Marah. 24The people murmured against Moses, saying, "What shall we drink?" 25Then he cried to the LORD. The LORD showed him a tree, and he threw it into the waters, and the waters were made sweet. There he made a statute and an ordinance for them, and there he tested them; 26and he said, "If you will diligently listen to the voice of the LORD your God, and will do that which is right in his eyes, and will pay attention to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you, which I have put on the Egyptians; for I am the LORD who heals you.

27They came to Elim, where there were twelve springs of water, and seventy palm trees: and they camped there by the waters.
