Bible: Exodus 15:1-18


The Song of Triumph


Then Moses and the Israelites sang 2  this song to the Lord. They said, 3 

“I will sing 4  to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously, 5 

the horse and its rider 6  he has thrown into the sea.

15:2 The Lord 7  is my strength and my song, 8 

and he has become my salvation.

This is my God, and I will praise him, 9 

my father’s God, and I will exalt him.

15:3 The Lord is a warrior, 10 

the Lord is his name. 11 

15:4 The chariots of Pharaoh 12  and his army he has thrown into the sea,

and his chosen 13  officers were drowned 14  in the Red Sea.

15:5 The depths have covered them, 15 

they went down to the bottom 16  like a stone.

15:6 Your right hand, O Lord, was majestic 17  in power,

your right hand, O Lord, shattered the enemy.

15:7 In the abundance of your majesty 18  you have overthrown 19 

those who rise up against you. 20 

You sent forth 21  your wrath; 22 

it consumed them 23  like stubble.

15:8 By the blast of your nostrils 24  the waters were piled up,

the flowing water stood upright like a heap, 25 

and the deep waters were solidified in the heart of the sea.

15:9 The enemy said, ‘I will chase, 26  I will overtake,

I will divide the spoil;

my desire 27  will be satisfied on them.

I will draw 28  my sword, my hand will destroy them.’ 29 

15:10 But 30  you blew with your breath, and 31  the sea covered them.

They sank 32  like lead in the mighty waters.

15:11 Who is like you, 33  O Lord, among the gods? 34 

Who is like you? – majestic in holiness, fearful in praises, 35  working wonders?

15:12 You stretched out your right hand,

the earth swallowed them. 36 

15:13 By your loyal love you will lead 37  the people whom 38  you have redeemed;

you will guide 39  them by your strength to your holy dwelling place.

15:14 The nations will hear 40  and tremble;

anguish 41  will seize 42  the inhabitants of Philistia.

15:15 Then the chiefs of Edom will be terrified, 43 

trembling will seize 44  the leaders of Moab,

and the inhabitants of Canaan will shake.

15:16 Fear and dread 45  will fall 46  on them;

by the greatness 47  of your arm they will be as still as stone 48 

until 49  your people pass by, O Lord,

until the people whom you have bought 50  pass by.

15:17 You will bring them in 51  and plant them in the mountain 52  of your inheritance,

in the place you made 53  for your residence, O Lord,

the sanctuary, O Lord, that your hands have established.

15:18 The Lord will reign forever and ever!
