Moses 'Song of the Sea'

       God  Almighty says in Ezekiel: 34:11  "I will search for my sheep and care for them." YHWH  which is God's name interpreted in English as Jehovah, the Y becoming a J with the H a V, compares himself to a shepherd. (Ezekiel: 34:12-14). A loving shepherd cares for his flock and leads them to food, water on good pastures. ( Psalm: 23: 1,2)  He watches over them day and night: (Luke:2:8) protecting them from predators. (1 Samuel:17:34,35); carries the newborn (Isa. 40:11); searches for strays and cares well for the injured. (Eze. 34:16)  Sheep with no shepherd scatter. (1 Kings: 22:17).  Moses was chosen by God to shepherd the nation of Israel through the wilderness into the Promised Land, making way for the greater Shepherd to be born through a genetic line from Abraham and King David. Those genes had to be kept pure, hence God's continued intervention upto the Virgin Birth of his dear Son, the Messiah, Jesus Christ whose second coming the world is now awaiting to shepherd mankind in a kind and loving way. So it is upto us to accept God's invitation to that great banquet, and what a celebration that will be!  We have reason through the study of the scriptures to believe that time is not far off.: the state of the world today implies the fulfilment of Jesus' prophecies, who is the Word of God.(John: 1:1).


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 rider
he has hurled into the sea.

2 "The Lord God Jehovah is my strength and my defense[;
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;
Jehovah 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.
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."

19 When Pharaoh’s horses, chariots and horsemen[e] went into the sea, the Lord brought the waters of the sea back over them, but the Israelites walked through the sea on dry ground. 20 Then Miriam the prophet, Aaron’s sister, took a timbrel in her hand, and all the women followed her, with timbrels and dancing. 21 Miriam sang to them:

Sing to the Lord,
for he is highly exalted.
Both horse and driver
he has hurled into the sea.
