The Song of Moses.

8 And with the blast of h thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as an heap, and the depths were comgealed 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 1 destroy them. 10 Thou didst blow with thy i wind, the sea covered them : they sank as lead in the mighty waters. 11 Who is like k unto thee, 0 LoRD, among the 2 gods? who islike thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders 4 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 Palestima. 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 m away, 16 Fear and dread shall n fall upon them : by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still o as a stone; till thy people pass over, O LORD, till the people pass over, which p thou hast purchased. 17 Thou shalt bring them in, and q. plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance, in the place, O LORD, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in; in the r sanctuary, Q LORD, which thy hands have established. 18.The LORD shall reigns 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. 20's And Miriam the prophetess the sister of Aaron, t took a timbre in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances. 21 And Miriam answered them, Sing ye to the LORD, w for he hath triumphed giorious ; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea. 22 So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea; and they went out into the wilderness of v Shur: and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water.

And it came to pass, as Aaron spake unto the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that the looked toward the wilderness, and, behold, the glory of the LORD lappeared in the cloud. 11 *s And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 12 I have heard the m murmurings of the children of Israel: speak unto them, saying, At even ye shall eat flesh, and in the morning ye shall be filled with bread; and ye shall know that I am the LORD your God. 13 And it came to pass, that at even the quails n came up, and covered the camp; and in the morning the dew lay round about the
