15Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the Lord:
I will sing to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously;
horse and rider he has thrown into the sea.
2 The Lord is my strength and my might,*
and he has become my salvation;
this is my God, and I will praise him,
my fathers God, and I will exalt him.
3 The Lord is a warrior;
the Lord is his name.
4 Pharaohs chariots and his army he cast into the sea;
his picked officers were sunk in the Red Sea.*
5 The floods covered them;
they went down into the depths like a stone.
6 Your right hand, O Lord, glorious in power
your right hand, O Lord, shattered the enemy.
7 In the greatness of your majesty you overthrew your adversaries;
you sent out your fury, it consumed them like stubble.
8 At the blast of your nostrils the waters piled up,
the floods stood up in a heap;
the deeps congealed in the heart of the sea.
9 The 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.
10 You blew with your wind, the sea covered them;
they sank like lead in the mighty waters.
11 Who is like you, O Lord, among the gods?
Who is like you, majestic in holiness,
awesome in splendour, doing wonders?
12 You stretched out your right hand,
the earth swallowed them.
13 In your steadfast love you led the people whom you redeemed;
you guided them by your strength to your holy abode.
17 You brought them in and planted them on the mountain of your own possession,
the place, O Lord, that you made your abode,
the sanctuary, O Lord, that your hands have established.
18 The Lord will reign for ever and ever.
