Exodus 15:1-21 CSB

1Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the Lord. They said: I will sing to the Lord, for he is highly exalted; he has thrown the horse and its rider into the sea. 2The Lord is my strength and my song;#15:2 Or might he has become my salvation.#Ps 18:2; 59:17; Is 12:2; Hab 3:18 This is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him.#Gn 28:21; Ex 3:6,15,18; Is 25:1 3The Lord is a warrior;#Ps 24:8; Rv 19:11 the Lord is his name.#Ex 6:3; Ps 83:18 4He threw Pharaoh’s chariots and his army into the sea; the elite of his officers were drowned in the Red Sea.#Ex 13:18; 15:22; 23:31 5The floods covered them; they sank to the depths like a stone.#Ex 14:28; 15:10; Neh 9:11 6 Lord, your right hand is glorious in power. Lord, your right hand shattered the enemy.#Ps 118:15-16 7You overthrew your adversaries by your great majesty. You unleashed your burning wrath; it consumed them like stubble.#Dt 33:26; Is 5:24 8The water heaped up#Ex 14:21; Ps 78:13 at the blast from your nostrils; the currents stood firm like a dam. The watery depths congealed in the heart of the sea. 9The enemy said: “I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil.#Ex 14:9; Jdg 5:30; Is 53:12 My desire will be gratified at their expense. I will draw my sword; my hand will destroy#15:9 Or conquer them.” 10But you blew with your breath, and the sea covered them. They sank like lead in the mighty waters. 11 Lord, who is like you among the gods? Who is like you, glorious in holiness,#Dt 3:24; 1Kg 8:23 revered with praises, performing wonders?#Ps 77:14; Is 6:3; Rv 4:8 12You stretched out your right hand, and the earth swallowed them. 13With your faithful love, you will lead the people you have redeemed; you will guide them to your holy dwelling with your strength.#Ps 77:15,20; 78:54 14When the peoples hear, they will shudder; anguish will seize the inhabitants of Philistia. 15Then the chiefs of Edom will be terrified;#Gn 36:15,40; Nm 22:3; Dt 2:4; Jos 5:1 trembling will seize the leaders of Moab; all the inhabitants of Canaan will panic; 16terror#Ex 23:27; Jos 2:9 and dread will fall on them. They will be as still#15:16 Or silent as a stone because of your powerful arm until your people pass by, Lord, until the people whom you purchased#15:16 Or created pass by.#1Sm 25:37; Ps 74:2; 1Pt 2:9 17You will bring them in and plant them on the mountain of your possession;#Ps 44:2; 78:54 Lord, you have prepared the place for your dwelling; Lord,#15:17 Some Hb mss, DSS, Sam, Tg read Lord your hands have established the sanctuary. 18The Lord will reign#Ps 10:16; 29:10; Is 57:15 forever and ever! 19When Pharaoh’s horses with his chariots and horsemen went into the sea, the Lord brought the water of the sea back over them. But the Israelites walked through the sea on dry ground. 20Then the prophetess Miriam,#Nm 26:59; Jdg 4:4 Aaron’s sister, took a tambourine in her hand, and all the women came out following her with tambourines and dancing.#Jdg 11:34; 1Sm 18:6; Ps 150:4 21Miriam sang to them: Sing to the Lord, for he is highly exalted; he has thrown the horse and its rider into the sea.
