Exodus 15:1-21

CLV(i) 1 Then Moses and the sons of Israel sang this song to Yahweh and spoke saying: Let me sing to Yahweh, for He is august, yea august: The horse and its rider He heaved into the sea. 2 Yah is my strength and my melody, and He become mine for salvation. This is my El; I shall adorn Him, Elohim of my father, I shall exalt Him. 3 Yahweh is a Man of war; Yahweh is His Name. 4 The chariots of Pharaoh and his army He shot into the sea, and the choice of his third fighters sank into the Sea of Weeds. 5 Abysses covered them; they descended into shadowy depths as a stone. 6 Your right hand, Yahweh, was ennobled in vigor; Your right hand, Yahweh, was harrying the enemy. 7 And by the vastness of Your pomp You were demolishing those rising against You; You were sending forth Your heat; it was devouring them as straw. 8 And by the wind of Your anger the waters were denuded, the floods were stood up as a waterspout; the abysses were curdled in the heart of the sea. 9 The enemy said: I shall pursue! I shall overtake! I shall apportion the loot! My soul's desire shall be fulfilled on them! I shall unsheathe my sword! My hand shall evict them! 10 You made a breeze with Your wind; the sea covered them. They submerged as lead in the noble waters. 11 Who is like You among the elim, Yahweh? Who is like You, ennobled in holiness, fear-inspiring in praiseworthy deeds, working marvels? 12 You stretched out Your right hand; the earth swallowed them up. 13 You guided in Your kindness this people You have redeemed; You will conduct them by Your strength to Your holy homestead. 14 The peoples have heard; they are disturbed. Travail, it has taken hold of the dwellers of Philistia. 15 Then the sheiks of Edom are flustered; the arbiters of Moab, quivering took hold of them. All the dwellers of Canaan are dissolved. 16 Dread and awe are falling on them; by the greatness of Your arm they are still as a stone, until Your people are passing by, Yahweh, until this people whom You have acquired are passing by. 17 You shall bring them in and plant them in the mount of Your allotment, the site for Your dwelling which You have contrived, Yahweh, the sanctuary, Yahweh, which Your hands have established. 18 Yahweh, He shall reign for the eon and further. 19 When the horses of Pharaoh had entered with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, then Yahweh returned the waters of the sea over them. Yet the sons of Israel, they had gone on dry ground in the midst of the sea!" 20 Then Miriam, the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took the tambourine in her hand, and all the women went forth after her with tambourines and with choruses. 21 And Miriam responded to them: Sing to Yahweh, for He is august, yea august: The horse and its rider He heaved into the sea.
