Then Moses and the people of Israel sang this song to the Lord, saying,

“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 my song,

and 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.

4“Pharaoh’s chariots and his host he cast into the sea;

and his picked officers are sunk in the Red Sea.

5The floods cover them;

they went down into the depths like a stone.

6Thy right hand, O Lord, glorious in power,

thy right hand, O Lord, shatters the enemy.

7In the greatness of thy majesty thou overthrowest thy adversaries;

thou sendest forth thy fury, it consumes them like stubble.

8At the blast of thy nostrils the waters piled up,

the floods stood up in a heap;

the deeps congealed in the heart of the sea.

9The enemy said, ‘I will pursue, I will overtake,

I will divide the spoil, my desire shall have its fill of them.

I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.’

10Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them;

they sank as lead in the mighty waters.

11“Who is like thee, O Lord, among the gods?

Who is like thee, majestic in holiness,

terrible in glorious deeds, doing wonders?

12Thou didst stretch out thy right hand,

the earth swallowed them.

13“Thou hast led in thy steadfast love the people whom thou hast


thou hast guided them by thy strength to thy holy abode.

14The peoples have heard, they tremble;

pangs have seized on the inhabitants of Philistia.

15Now are the chiefs of Edom dismayed;

the leaders of Moab, trembling seizes them;

all the inhabitants of Canaan have melted away.

16Terror and dread fall upon them;

because of the greatness of thy arm, they are as still as a stone,

till thy people, O Lord, pass by,

till the people pass by whom thou hast purchased.

17Thou wilt bring them in, and plant them on thy own mountain,

the place, O Lord, which thou hast made for thy abode,

the sanctuary, O Lord, which thy hands have established.

18The Lord will reign for ever and ever.”
