 15:18  15:19
15:17 O bring them and plant them

On the mount You possess.

The place You dwell in

Is Your accomplishment, God.

The shrine of God

Your Hands have founded.
Tevi'emo vetita'emo behar nachalatcha machon leshivtecha pa'alta Adonay mikdash Adonay konenu yadecha.

15:18 God will reign forever and ever.
Adonay yimloch le'olam va'ed.
15:19 [This song was sung] when Pharaoh's horse came into the sea, along with his chariot corps and cavalry, and God made the sea come back on them. The Israelites had walked on dry land in the midst of the sea.
Ki va sus Par'oh berichbo uvefarashav bayam vayashev Adonay alehem et-mey hayam uveney Yisra'el halchu vayabashah betoch hayam.


This song was sung...
  Many authorities maintain that this verse is not part of the song (Ramban; Abudarham, p. 63; cf. Zohar 3:168a). Others, however, maintain that it is an integral part of the song (Midrash HaGadol; Ibn Ezra). It would then be translated, 'For Pharaoh's horse came....' (cf. Saadia; Rashi; Gittin 90a s.v. Ki).
