The Book of Exodus (Part 16)

A Song of Worship

Keith Miller

Exodus 15

The Power of God

Exodus 15:1-5

1 Then Moses and the people of Israel sang this song to the Lord, saying,

“I will sing to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously;

    the horse and his rider he has thrown into the sea.

The Lord is my strength and my song,

    and he has become my salvation;

this is my God, and I will praise him,

    my father's God, and I will exalt him.

The Lord is a man of war;

    the Lord is his name.

“Pharaoh's chariots and his host he cast into the sea,

    and his chosen officers were sunk in the Red Sea.

The floods covered them;

    they went down into the depths like a stone.

The Personal Action of the Lord

Exodus 15:6-10

Your right hand, O Lord, glorious in power,

    your right hand, O Lord, shatters the enemy.

In the greatness of your majesty you overthrow your adversaries;

    you send out your fury; it consumes them like stubble.

At the blast of your nostrils the waters piled up;

    the floods stood up in a heap;

    the deeps congealed in the heart of the sea.

The enemy said, ‘I will pursue, I will overtake,

    I will divide the spoil, my desire shall have its fill of them.

    I will draw my sword; my hand shall destroy them.’

10 You blew with your wind; the sea covered them;

    they sank like lead in the mighty waters.

Miraculous Victory

Exodus 15:11-13

11 “Who is like you, O Lord, among the gods?

    Who is like you, majestic in holiness,

    awesome in glorious deeds, doing wonders?

12 You stretched out your right hand;

    the earth swallowed them.

13 “You have led in your steadfast love the people whom you have redeemed;

    you have guided them by your strength to your holy abode.

Continual Victory

Exodus 15:14-18

14 The peoples have heard; they tremble;

    pangs have seized the inhabitants of Philistia.

15 Now are the chiefs of Edom dismayed;

    trembling seizes the leaders of Moab;

    all the inhabitants of Canaan have melted away.

16 Terror and dread fall upon them;

    because of the greatness of your arm, they are still as a stone,

till your people, O Lord, pass by,

    till the people pass by whom you have purchased.

17 You will bring them in and plant them on your own mountain,

    the place, O Lord, which you have made for your abode,

    the sanctuary, O Lord, which your hands have established.

18 The Lord will reign forever and ever.”
