Song of Moshe and Israelis
Background and Printed Text: Exodus chapter 15
Exodus 15:1 Then Draw (Moshe) will sing this song, and the children of Israel, to Yehovah. And they will say, to say, “I will sing to Yehovah! For heightening, He heightened horse! And He elevated his chariot via the Sea—2my Strength and the ballad of Yah! And He became to Salvation to me! This is my Mighty-[One]! And I house-dwelt Him—my Gods, my Father! And I elevated Him!
3 “Yehovah is a man of war! Yehovah is His Name! 4He taught charioteers of Pharaoh and his army via the Sea! And they immersed the choice of his thirds via the Ending Sea! 5Depths shall blanket-cover them. They shall descend into the profoundnesses like a stone.
6Thy right, Yehovah, is my majesty via power! Thy right, Yehovah, will shatter an enemy! 7Thou wilt demolish Thy risers via the multiplicity of Thy highness! Thou wilt send Thy heat! He will eat them as chaff!
8And Waters were piled via the wind of Thy noses. Distillings were positioned like a heap. Depths congealed in the heart of the Sea! 9Enemy said, ‘I will chase! I will reach! I will divide plunder! My being shall be filled of them! I will empty my sword! My hand will inherit them!’ 10Thou didst blow via Thy wind. The Sea blanket-covered them. They submerged like lead in majestic waters!
11 “Who is like Thee via their mighty-[one], Yehovah? Who is like Thee—majestic via a Holy-[One], Terror of Psalms Pele did? 12Thou stretched Thy right; land swallowed them.
13 “Thou guided this people Thou redeemed via Thy Grace. Thou led via Thy strength unto the living-quarter of Thy Holy-[One].
14 “The peoples hearkened. They quaked. Whirling grasped the inhabitants of Palestine. 15Then the alufs of Edom were dismayed, the strongmen of Moab! Trembling shall grasp them! All the inhabitants of Canaan melted! 16Dread shall fall upon them, and fear via the bigness of Thine arm. They shall be silent as a stone until Thy people will cross-over, Yehovah—until this people Thou hast acquired will cross-over! 17Thou shalt bring them. And Thou hast planted them in the Mountain of Thine inheritance established for Thy dwelling! Thou acted, Yehovah. Thine hands established the Sanctuary of my Lords!
18Yehovah will reign to Hider and onward!
19 “For Pharaoh’s horse came with his chariot and with his horsemen into the Sea. And Yehovah returned the waters of the Sea upon them. And the children of Israel walked via the dry in the midst of the Sea.”
20And Miriam the prophetess, sister of Aharon took the tambourine via her hand. And all the women exited after her via tambourines and via dances. 21And Miriam answered to them, “Sing-ye to Yehovah! For heightening, He heightened horse! And He elevated his chariot in the Sea!”
22And Draw (Moshe) journeyed with Israel from Ending Sea. And they exited unto Ox Desert. And they walked three days via desert. And they didn’t find water. 23And they came Bitternessward. And they were not able to drink waters from bitterness. For they are bitter! Therefore he called her name Bitter. 24And the people, they lodged upon Draw (Moshe) to say, “What shall we drink?” 25And he screamed unto Yehovah. And Yehovah taught him a tree. And he slung unto the waters. And the waters sweetened. He put a statute and a justice to him there. And He proved him there. 26And He said, “If hearkening, thou wilt hearken to the voice of Yehovah thy Gods, and thou wilt do the straight in His eyes, and thou wilt ‘ear’ to His commandments, and thou wilt guard all His statutes, I will not put upon thee all the sicknesses that I put into Egypt. For I am Yehovah thy Healer!
27And they came Their-Ramward. And twelve eyes of water and seventy palms are there. And they camped there upon the waters.
I. High Horse (verses 1-2)
Moshe will sing a song that is prophecy. He will teach the song to the children of Israel so that they will know what will happen during the End Times, during the Tribulation, and so that they will sing it to Yehovah!
They will start by saying, “I will sing to Yehovah!”
Why will they sing to Him? Yehovah heightened horse! He, the speaker’s Strength and the very ballad of Yah, also elevated the chariot by means of the Sea. This being who is the Strength of the speaker and who is the ballad of Yah became to the very Salvation of the speaker! He is identified as the speaker’s Mighty One. Yet, the speaker house-dwelt Him; He house-dwelt his Gods and his Father! The speaker also elevated Him!

2. Why will they sing this song to Yehovah?
3. Why does the text say, “And they will say, to say”?

22. If the speaker is Mount Zion, how can Mount Zion call Yeshua “my Father”?
23. What did the speaker do to elevate Him?
II. The Baptism of Pharaoh (verses 3-5)
Yehovah is a man of war. His Name is Yehovah! Yehovah gave Pharaoh’s charioteers and Pharaoh’s army a lesson in warfare that they will never forget by means of the Ending Sea.
Pharaoh’s charioteers and soldiers immersed the best of Pharaoh’s fighting thirds by means of the Ending Sea!
In the future, depths call cover them like a blanket; they will descend into the greatest depths of oceans like a stone.

10. What are profoundnesses?
11. What does “They shall descend into the profoundnesses like a stone” describe?
12. Why does Yehovah mix historical texts with future texts, or write future texts as if they are referring to historical events?
III. Yehovah and His Right Do Battle (verses 6-7)
Yehovah’s right (that is, His right side) is the speaker’s majesty in power. Yehovah’s right will shatter an enemy! Yehovah will demolish all who rise up against Him to try to destroy Him; that demolition will be by means of the multiplicity of Yehovah’s highness!

The enemy of Yehovah and Israel said, “I will chase! I will reach! I will divide plunder! My being shall be filled of them! I will empty my sword! My hand will inherit them!”

4. Look carefully at this wording: “Enemy said, ‘I will chase! I will reach! I will divide plunder! My being shall be filled of them! I will empty my sword! My hand will inherit them!’” Did this happen in Moshe’s day?
5. Again, why does Yehovah mix texts about the crossing of the Ending Sea with texts that are about events that never took place?
6. What does “Thou didst blow via Thy wind; the Sea blanket-covered them” describe?
7. If the sea blanket-covered them, how could they be seen dead along the shore??

Finally, the peoples of the world hearkened. They then quaked, shaking with terror. An army grasped the inhabitants of Palestine! The alufs of Edom were dismayed, and so were the strongmen of Moab!
In the future, trembling will grasp them!
In the past, the inhabitants of Canaan melted.
In the future, dread will fall upon them—dread and fear by means of the bigness of Yehovah’s arm! They will be totally silent like a stone is silent until Yehovah’s people will cross over—until this people that Yehovah has acquired will cross over!

IX. The End of Pharaoh’s Horse, Chariot and Horsemen (verse 19)
Pharaoh’s horse accompanied Pharaoh’s chariot and Pharaoh’s horsemen into the Sea. Yehovah caused the waters of the Sea to return upon them. The children of Israel had walked by means of the dry seabed in the midst of the Sea; that isn’t what happened to Pharaoh’s army.
1. The text states, “For Pharaoh’s horse came with his chariot and with his horsemen into the Sea.” It doesn’t state that Pharaoh himself came into the Sea. How could a reader know with certainty that Pharaoh went into the Sea?
2. Why would this text mention Pharaoh’s horse and his chariot, and not mention Pharaoh?
3. Upon whom did Yehovah return the waters, according to this text?
4. Why does the text repeat that the children of Israel walked via the dry in the midst of the Sea?

XI. Healing of Bitterness (verses 22-26)
Moshe journeyed with Israel from the Ending Sea. They exited the land unto Ox Desert. They then walked three days via desert.
The Israelis didn’t find water. Instead, they came to a place that seemed to have water, but the water was bitter; it was impossible to drink it (without becoming sick or dying). The waters were bitter. Thus, Moshe named this area Bitter.
The Israelis had been angering at Moshe because of the lack of water. The people lodged upon Moshe, coming very close and pushing on him, working themselves up to become violent. They said, “What shall we drink?” Moshe screamed to Yehovah. Yehovah responded by teaching Moshe a particular tree. He took from that tree and slung it unto the waters. The waters sweetened!
Yehovah put to Israel a statute and a justice at those waters. Yehovah proved Israel there. He then said, “If hearkening, thou wilt hearken to the voice of Yehovah thy Gods, and thou wilt do the straight in His eyes, and thou wilt ‘ear’ to His commandments, and thou wilt guard all His statutes, I will not put upon thee all the sicknesses that I put into Egypt.” Yehovah then identified Himself: “For I am Yehovah thy Healer!”

8. What does “And Yehovah taught him a tree” mean?
9. What did Moshe sling unto the waters?
10. How could one tree sweeten bodies of water that are together enough to give drink to so many Israelis and their cattle, and still have plenty of water left over?
11. If someone came upon waters today that were bitter, and if that same type of tree was in the area, would throwing the tree into the waters have the same effect?
12. What does “He put a statute and a justice to him there” mean, and who is him?
13. The next text states, “And He proved him there.” What does proved mean?
14. What must Israel do in order for Yehovah to not put on Israel all the sicknesses that He put into Egypt?
