The LORD will reign for ever and ever."119
When Pharaoh's horses, chariots and horsemena went into the sea,2 the LORD brought the waters of the sea back over them, but the Israelites walked through the sea on dry ground.320
Then Miriam4 the prophetess,5 Aaron's sister, took a tambourine in her hand, and all the women followed her, with tambourines6 and dancing.721
Miriam sang8 to them: "Sing to the LORD, for he is highly exalted. The horse and its rider9 he has hurled into the sea."10
Then Moses led Israel from the Red Sea and they went into the Desert11 of Shur.12 For three days they traveled in the desert without finding water.1323
When they came to Marah, they could not drink its water because it was bitter. (That is why the place is called Marah.b14)
So the people grumbled15 against Moses, saying, "What are we to drink?"1625
Then Moses cried out17 to the LORD, and the LORD showed him a piece of wood. He threw18 it into the water, and the water became sweet. There the LORD made a decree and a law for them, and there he tested19 them.
He said, "If you listen carefully to the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep20 all his decrees,21 I will not bring on you any of the diseases22 I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who heals23 you."
Then they came to Elim, where there were twelve springs and seventy palm trees, and they camped24 there near the water.
