Exodus 15


The Ode of Moses and Israel

1Then they sang, Moses and the sons of Israel, this ode to the  lord. And they said, We should sing to the  lord, for gloriously he is glorified; horse and rider he tossed into the sea. 2Helper and shelterer he became to me for deliverance; this is my God, and I will glorify him; the God of my father, and I will exalt him. 3The  lord breaking by wars; the  lord is his name. 4The chariots of Pharaoh, and his force he tossed into the sea; chosen riders -- tribunes he sank in the red sea. 5A high sea covered them; they descended unto the bottom of the sea as stone. 6 Your right hand, O  lord, has been glorified in strength; your right hand, O  lord, devastated the enemies. 7And in the magnitude of your glory you broke the opponents. You sent your anger, and it devoured them as stubble. 8And by the breath of your rage [3was parted 1the 2water]; [2a banked up 1as] wall were the waters; [4were banked up 1and 2the 3waves] in the midst of the sea. 9[3said 1The 2enemy], In pursuing I shall overtake; I shall portion the spoils; I shall fill up my soul; I will take up my sword; [2will dominate 1my hand]. 10You sent your breath, [2covered 3them 1the sea]; they went down as lead in [2water 1vehement]. 11Who is likened to you among gods, O  lord? Who is likened to you, being glorified among holy ones, wonderful in glories, doing miracles? 12You stretched out your right hand, [2swallowed 3them 1the earth]. 13You guided by your righteousness -- [2your people 1this] whom you ransomed. You aided in your strength in [2lodging 1your holy]. 14[2heard 1Nations], and were provoked to anger; pangs took hold of the ones dwelling among the Philistines. 15Then hastened the princes of Edom, and the rulers of the Moabites; [2took hold 3of them 1trembling]; they melted away -- all the ones dwelling in Canaan. 16May there fall upon them fear and trembling; by the greatness of your arm they are petrified, until whenever [2may go by 1your people], O  lord, until whenever [3may go by 2your people 1this], whom you acquired. 17Bringing them in -- plant them in [2mountain 3of inheritance 1your]; into [2prepared 3home 1your] which you manufactured, O  lord; the sanctuary, O  lord, which you prepared by your hands. 18The  lord reigning into the eon, and unto eon, and still! 19For [3entered 1the horse 2of Pharaoh] with chariots and riders into the sea; and [2brought 3upon 4them 1the  lord] the water of the sea. But the sons of Israel went through dry land in the midst of the sea. 20[8took 1And 2Miriam 3the 4prophetess 5the 6sister 7of Aaron] the tambourine in her hand. And came forth all the women after her with tambourines and dancers. 21[3led 1And 4them 2Miriam], saying, We should sing to the  lord, for gloriously he glorified himself -- horse and rider he tossed into the sea.

Bitter Water at Marah

22[3lifted up 1And 2Moses] the sons of Israel from [2sea 1the red], and he led them into the wilderness of Shur. And they went three days in the wilderness, and they did not find water so as to drink. 23And they came unto Marah. And they were not able to drink water at Marah, [3bitter 1for 2it was]. On account of this [4was named 1the 2name 3of that place], Bitter. 24And [3complained 1the 2people] unto Moses, saying, What shall we drink? 25[3yelled 1And 2Moses] to the  lord. And [3showed 4to him 1the 2  lord] a tree. And he put it into the water, and [3was sweetened 1the 2water]. There he established with him ordinances and judgments, and there he tested him. 26And he said, If you should hear the voice of the  lord your God, and [2the things 3pleasing 4before 5him 1you should do], and you should give ear to his commandments, and you should guard all his ordinances, then every disease which was brought upon the Egyptians, I will not bring upon you. For I am the  lord healing you. 27And they came into Elim. And there were there twelve springs of waters, and seventy trunks of palm trees; and they camped there by the waters.
