15 Then Moses and the people of Israel fsang this song to the Lord, saying,
g“I will sing to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously;
the horse and his rider1 he has thrown into the sea.
and he has become jmy salvation;
this is my God, and I will praise him,
3 The Lord is ma man of war;
nthe Lord is his name.
4 o“Pharaoh’s chariots and his host he cast into the sea,
and his chosen pofficers were sunk in the Red Sea.
5 The qfloods covered them;
they rwent down into the depths like a stone.
6 sYour right hand, O Lord, glorious in power,
your right hand, O Lord, tshatters the enemy.
7 In the ugreatness of your majesty you overthrow your adversaries;
you send out your fury; it vconsumes them like stubble.
8 At the wblast of your nostrils the waters piled up;
the xfloods stood up in a heap;
the deeps congealed in the heart of the sea.
9 The enemy said, y‘I will pursue, I will overtake,
I zwill divide the spoil, my desire shall have its fill of them.
I will draw my sword; my hand shall destroy them.’
they sank like lead in the mighty waters.
11 c“Who is like you, O Lord, among the gods?
Who is like you, majestic in holiness,
12 You stretched out fyour right hand;
the earth swallowed them.
you have iguided them by your strength to your holy abode.
14 jThe peoples have heard; they tremble;
pangs have seized the inhabitants of Philistia.
15 Now are the chiefs of Edom kdismayed;
trembling seizes the leaders of lMoab;
mall the inhabitants of Canaan have melted away.
16 Terror and ndread fall upon them;
because of the greatness of your arm, they are still oas a stone,
till your people, O Lord, pass by,
till the people pass by whom pyou have purchased.
17 You will bring them in and qplant them on your own mountain,
the place, O Lord, which you have made for your abode,
rthe sanctuary, O Lord, which your hands have established.
18 sThe Lord will reign forever and ever.”
19 For when tthe horses of Pharaoh with his chariots and his horsemen went into the sea, uthe Lord brought back the waters of the sea upon them, but the people of Israel walked on dry ground in the midst of the sea. 20 Then vMiriam wthe prophetess, the xsister of Aaron, took a tambourine in her hand, and yall the women went out after her with tambourines and dancing. 21 And Miriam sang to them:
z“Sing to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously;
the horse and his rider he has thrown into the sea.”
22 Then Moses made Israel set out from the Red Sea, and they went into the wilderness of aShur. They went three days in the wilderness and found no water. 23 When they came to bMarah, they could not drink the water of Marah because it was bitter; therefore it was named Marah.2 24 And the people cgrumbled against Moses, saying, “What shall we drink?” 25 And he dcried to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a log,3 and he ethrew it into the water, and the water became sweet.
There the Lord4 made for them a statute and a rule, and there he ftested them, 26 saying, g“If you will diligently listen to the voice of the Lord your God, and do that which is right in his eyes, and give ear to his commandments and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the hdiseases on you that I put on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, iyour healer.”
27 Then jthey came to Elim, where there were twelve springs of water and seventy palm trees, and they encamped there by the water.
About English Standard Version
The English Standard Version™ is founded on the conviction that the words of the Bible are the very words of God. And because the words themselves—not just the thoughts or ideas—are inspired by God, each word must be translated with the greatest precision and accuracy. As Jesus Himself stressed, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” (Matt. 4:4).
This passion for God’s Word is the driving force behind the translation of the ESV™ Bible. The English Standard Version™ does not try to “improve” on the original in light of today’s culture or by using trendy language. Instead, the utmost care has been taken to express God’s Word in English that most closely captures the meaning of the original, with understandability, beauty, and impact.
