NASB — Exodus 15 — KJV

The Song of Moses and Israel

1 aThen Moses and the sons of Israel sang this song to the LORD, Iand said,
  “IIbI will sing to the LORD, for He IIIis highly exalted;
  cThe horse and its rider He has hurled into the sea.
  2IaThe LORD is my strength and song,
  And He has become my salvation;
  bThis is my God, and I will praise Him;
  cMy father’s God, and I will dextol Him.
  3aThe LORD is a warrior;
  IbThe LORD is His name.
  4aPharaoh’s chariots and his army He has cast into the sea;
  And the choicest of his officers are Idrowned in the IIRed Sea.
  5 “The deeps cover them;
  aThey went down into the depths like a stone.
  6aYour right hand, O LORD, is majestic in power,
  bYour right hand, O LORD, shatters the enemy.
  7 “And in the greatness of Your Iexcellence You aoverthrow those who rise up against You;
  bYou send forth Your burning anger, [and] it cconsumes them as chaff.
  8aAt the blast of Your nostrils the waters were piled up,
  bThe flowing waters stood up like a heap;
  The deeps were congealed in the heart of the sea.
  9aThe enemy said, ‘I will pursue, I will overtake, I will bdivide the spoil;
  My Idesire shall be IIgratified against them;
  I will draw out my sword, my hand will IIIdestroy them.’
  10aYou blew with Your wind, the sea covered them;
  bThey sank like lead in the Imighty waters.
  11aWho is like You among the gods, O LORD?
  Who is like You, bmajestic in holiness,
  cAwesome in praises, dworking wonders?
  12aYou stretched out Your right hand,
  The earth swallowed them.
  13 “In Your lovingkindness You have aled the people whom You have bredeemed;
  In Your strength You have guided [them] cto Your holy habitation.
  14aThe peoples have heard, they tremble;
  Anguish has gripped the inhabitants of Philistia.
  15 “Then the achiefs of Edom were dismayed;
  bThe leaders of Moab, trembling grips them;
  cAll the inhabitants of Canaan have melted away.
  16aTerror and dread fall upon them;
  bBy the greatness of Your arm they are motionless as stone;
  Until Your people pass over, O LORD,
  Until the people pass over whom You chave purchased.
  17aYou will bring them and bplant them in cthe mountain of Your inheritance,
  dThe place, O LORD, which You have made for Your dwelling,
  eThe sanctuary, O Lord, which Your hands have established.
  18aThe LORD shall reign forever and ever.”

The LORD Provides Water

22aThen Moses Iled Israel from the IIRed Sea, and they went out into bthe wilderness of cShur; and they went three days in the wilderness and found no water. 23 When they came to aMarah, they could not drink the waters Iof Marah, for they were IIbitter; therefore it was named IIIMarah. 24 So the people agrumbled at Moses, saying, “What shall we drink?” 25 Then he acried out to the LORD, and the LORD showed him ba tree; and he threw [it] into the waters, and the waters became sweet.

¶ There He cmade for them a statute and regulation, and there He dtested them. 26 And He said, “aIf you will give earnest heed to the voice of the LORD your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear bto His commandments, and keep all His statutes, cI will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, dthe LORD, am your healer.”

Moses' song.

1 ¶ Then sang Moses 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] my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he [is] my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt him. 3 The LORD [is] a man of war: the LORD [is] his name. 4 Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea. 5 The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone. 6 Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy. 7 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 stubble. 8 And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as an heap, [and] the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea. 9 The enemy said, I 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 destroy them. 10 Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters. 11 Who [is] like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who [is] like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful [in] praises, doing wonders? 12 Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them. 13 Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people [which] thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided [them] in thy strength unto thy holy habitation. 14 The people shall hear, [and] be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina. 15 Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away. 16 Fear and dread 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 purchased. 17 Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the 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. 18 The LORD shall reign for ever and ever. 19 For the horse of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and the LORD brought again the waters of the sea upon them; but the children of Israel went on dry [land] in the midst of the sea.
