When the victory was sure Miriam Sang a song and a song of Moses was sung. Exodus 15
“Who is like You, O Lord, among the gods?
Who is like You, glorious in holiness,
Fearful in praises, doing wonders?
12 You stretched out Your right hand;
The earth swallowed them.
13 You in Your mercy have led forth
The people whom You have redeemed;
You have guided them in Your strength
To Your holy habitation.
Then Miriam led the singers in this chorus:
For He has triumphed gloriously!
The horse and its rider
He has thrown into the sea!”
