1Moses' song. 20Miriam and the women join in it. 22The people want water. 25The waters at Marah are bitter; a tree sweeteneth them. 27They remove to Elim.

1

THEN sang aMoses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.

2

The LORD is bmy strength and song, and he is become my csalvation: he is dmy God, and I will prepare him an ehabitation; my father's God, and I will fexalt him.

The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as ja stone.

6

kThy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.

7

And in the lgreatness of thine excellency thou hast overthrown them that rose up magainst thee: thou sentest forth thy wrath, which consumed them nas stubble.

8

And with the oblast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, pthe floods stood upright as an heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea.

9

The enemy said, qI will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall 1destroy them.

10

Thou didst rblow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.

11

sWho is like unto thee, O LORD, among the 2gods? who is like thee, tglorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?

12

Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them.

13

Thou in thy mercy hast uled forth the people which vthou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto wthy holy habitation.

14

xThe people shall hear, and be afraid: ysorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina.

15

Then zthe *dukes of Edom ashall be *amazed; the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall bmelt away.

a De. 2.4.
16

Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still cas a stone; till dthy people pass over, O LORD, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased.

17

Thou shalt ebring them in, and plant them in fthe mountain of thine inheritance, in the place, O LORD, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O Lord, which thy hands have established.

¶And when they came to 3Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah.

And the people omurmured against Moses, saying, pWhat shall we drink?

25

And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD shewed him a qtree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he rproved them,

26

And said, sIf thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these tdiseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: ufor I am the LORD that healeth thee.
