Exodus 15

The Song of Moses

1 Moses and the Israelites sang this song in praise of the Lord:

I sing praises to the Lord

for his great victory!

He has thrown the horses

and their riders

into the sea.

2 The Lord is my strength,

the reason for my song,

because he has saved me.

I praise and honor the Lord

he is my God and the God

of my ancestors.

3The Lord is his name,

and he is a warrior!

4He threw the chariots and army

of Egypt's king

into the Red Sea,

and he drowned the best

of the king's officers.

5They sank to the bottom

just like stones.

6With the tremendous force

of your right arm, our Lord,

you crushed your enemies.

7What a great victory was yours,

when you defeated everyone

who opposed you.
