Exodus 15: 1-18
Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the Lord: “I will sing to the Lord, for he is highly exalted. Both
horse and driver he has hurled into the sea. 2 “The Lord is my strength and my defense[a]; he has become my
salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him. 3 The Lord is a warrior; the
Lord is his name. 4 Pharaoh’s chariots and his army he has hurled into the sea. The best of Pharaoh’s officers
are drowned in the Red Sea.[b] 5 The deep waters have covered them; they sank to the depths like a stone. 6
Your right hand, Lord, was majestic in power. Your right hand, Lord, shattered the enemy. 7 “In the greatness
of your majesty you threw down those who opposed you. You unleashed your burning anger; it consumed
them like stubble. 8 By the blast of your nostrils the waters piled up. The surging waters stood up like a wall:
the deep waters congealed in the heart of the sea. 9 The enemy boasted, ‘I will pursue, I will overtake them. I
will divide the spoils; I will gorge myself on them. I will draw my sword and my hand will destroy them.’ 10
But you blew with your breath, and the sea covered them. They sank like lead in the mighty waters. 11 Who
among the gods is like you, Lord? Who is like you—majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders?
12 “You stretch out your right hand, and the earth swallows your enemies. 13 In your unfailing love you will
lead the people you have redeemed. In your strength you will guide them to your holy dwelling. 14 The
nations will hear and tremble; anguish will grip the people of Philistia. 15 The chiefs of Edom will be terrified,
the leaders of Moab will be seized with trembling, the people[c] of Canaan will melt away; 16 terror and
dread will fall on them. By the power of your arm they will be as still as a stone—until your people pass by,
Lord, until the people you bought[d] pass by. 17 You will bring them in and plant them on the mountain of
your inheritance— the place, Lord, you made for your dwelling, the sanctuary, Lord, your hands established.
18 “The Lord reigns for ever and ever.”
The Waters of Marah and Elim
Exodus 15:22-25 (NIV)
22 Then Moses led Israel from the Red Sea and they went into the Desert of Shur. For three days they
traveled in the desert without finding water. 23 When they came to Marah, they could not drink its water
because it was bitter. (That is why the place is called Marah.[f]) 24 So the people grumbled against Moses,
saying, “What are we to drink?”
25 Then Moses cried out to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a piece of wood. He threw it into the water,
and the water became fit to drink.

• Is GOD’S deliverance enough (do I want to go back into slavery/Egypt because GOD didn’t
meet OUR EXPECTATIONS)? Is what GOD has for me enough?
• Does my heart become bitter that GOD didn’t meet my expectations? GOD got His people out
of Egypt, but His next task is getting Egypt out of His people.
