 15:3
15:1 Moses and the Israelites then sang this song to God. It went:

I will sing to God for His great victory,

Horse and rider He threw in the sea.
Az yashir-Moshe uveney Yisra'el et-hashirah hazot l'Adonay vayomeru lemor ashirah l'Adonay ki-ga'oh ga'ah sus verochevo ramah vayam.

15:2 My strength and song is God

And this is my deliverance;

This is my God, I will enshrine Him

My father's God, I will exalt Him.
Ozi vezimrat yah vayehi-li lishu'ah zeh Eli ve'anvehu Elohey avi va'aromemenhu.

15:3 God is the Master of war,

God is His name.
Adonay ish milchamah Adonay shemo.
