Crossing the Red Sea ~ Part 2
- Crossing the Red Sea ~ Part 2
The Lord saved Israel that day from the hands of the Egyptians. Then Miriam, older than her brothers Moses and Aaron, took a timbrel and began to sing. For a while she sang alone, an old woman giving sweet expression to her faith and the praise of the Lord.
But then another old woman – the mother of the wife of Carmi – stepped forward and began to dance to the timbrel with gestures smooth and unspeakably lovely. “Because my daughter gave birth to a son,” she said, “in the midst of the sea she bore a child, and they did not die.”
Other women, both old and young, wept in the knowledge of deliverance. They could not contain themselves. They clapped. They joined the mother of the wife of Carmi, dancing. Soon all the women of Israel were following Miriam with timbrels and motion, and she sang to them these words:
- The Song of Moses
- The Song of Miriam
Oh, sing to the Lord,
for he has triumphed gloriously:
the horse and rider he has thrown into the sea!
The Lord is my strength,
my God and my father’rsquo;s God the same!
And he who is salvation now has given me his name:
his name is the Lord!
I will exalt him day and night! Forever will I praise my God,
my song, and all my might.” 1
The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
