THE SECOND BOOK OF MOSES CALLED
Israel sings the song of Moses—They extol the Lord as a man of war, and rejoice in their deliverance from Egypt—Waters of Marah healed—The Lord promises to free Israel from the diseases of Egypt.
Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the Lord
, and spake, saying, I will bsing
unto the Lord
, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.
The Lord is
a man of awar
: the Lord is
and his host hath he bcast
into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the cRed
The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a astone
Thy aright bhand
, O Lord
, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O Lord
, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.
And in the greatness of thine excellency thou hast overthrown them that rose up against thee: thou sentest forth thy wrath, which
consumed them as astubble
And with the blast of thy nostrils the awaters
were gathered together, the floods stood upright as an bheap
the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea.
The enemy said, I will apursue
, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my blust
shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.
Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.
Who is alike
unto thee, O bLord
, among the gods? who is
like thee, glorious in choliness
, dfearful in
praises, doing wonders?
Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them.
Thou in thy mercy hast aled
forth the people which
thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them
in thy strength unto thy holy habitation.
The people shall ahear
be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of bPalestina
Then the adukes
shall be amazed; the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall cmelt
shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as
still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O Lord
, till the people pass over, which

thou hast made for thee to dwell in, in

¶ And aMiriam
, the csister
of Aaron, took a dtimbrel
in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.
And Miriam answered them, aSing
ye to the Lord
, for he hath triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.
So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of aShur
; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water.
¶ And when they came to aMarah
, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were
bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah.
And the people amurmured
against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?
And he cried unto the Lord
; and the Lord

were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he bproved
And said, If thou wilt adiligently bhearken
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 ckeep
