The canticle of Moses. The bitter waters of Mara are made sweet.
 Then Moses and the children of Israel sung this canticle to the Lord: and said: Let us sing to the Lord: for he is gloriously magnified, the horse and the rider he hath thrown into the sea.
Tunc cecinit Moyses et filii Israel carmen hoc Domino, et dixerunt : Cantemus Domino : gloriose enim magnificatus est, equum et ascensorem dejecit in mare.
 The Lord is my strength and my praise, and he is become salvation to me: he is my God and I will glorify him: the God of my father, and I will exalt him.
Fortitudo mea, et laus mea Dominus, et factus est mihi in salutem : iste Deus meus, et glorificabo eum : Deus patris mei, et exaltabo eum.
 The Lord is as a man of war, Almighty is his name.
Dominus quasi vir pugnator, Omnipotens nomen ejus,
 Pharao's chariots and his army he hath cast into the sea: his chosen captains are drowned in the Red Sea.
currus Pharaonis et exercitum ejus projecit in mare : electi principes ejus submersi sunt in mari Rubro.
 The depths have covered them, they are sunk to the bottom like a stone.
Abyssi operuerunt eos; descenderunt in profundum quasi lapis.
 Thy right hand, O Lord, is magnified in strength: thy right hand, O Lord, hath slain the enemy.
Dextera tua, Domine, magnificata est in fortitudine : dextera tua, Domine, percussit inimicum.
 And in the multitude of thy glory thou hast put down thy adversaries: thou hast sent thy wrath, which hath devoured them like stubble.
Et in multitudine gloriae tuae deposuisti adversarios tuos : misisti iram tuam, quae devoravit eos sicut stipulam.
 And with the blast of thy anger the waters were gathered together: the flowing water stood, the depth were gathered together in the midst of the sea.
Et in spiritu furoris tui congregatae sunt aquae : stetit unda fluens, congregata sunt abyssi in medio mari.
 The enemy said: I will pursue and overtake, I will divide the spoils, my soul shall have its fill: I will draw my sword, my hand shall slay them.
Dixit inimicus : Persequar et comprehendam, dividam spolia, implebitur anima mea : evaginabo gladium meum, interficiet eos manus mea.
 Thy wind blew and the sea covered them: they sunk as lead in the mighty waters.
Flavit spiritus tuus, et operuit eos mare : submersi sunt quasi plumbum in aquis vehementibus.
 Who is like to thee, among the strong, O Lord? who is like to thee, glorious in holiness, terrible and praiseworthy, doing wonders?
Quis similis tui in fortibus, Domine? quis similis tui, magnificus in sanctitate, terribilis atque laudabilis, faciens mirabilia?
 Thou stretchedst forth thy hand, and the earth swallowed them.
Extendisti manum tuam, et devoravit eos terra.
 In thy mercy thou hast been a leader to the people which thou hast redeemed: and in thy strength thou hast carried them to thy holy habitation.
Dux fuisti in misericordia tua populo quem redemisti : et portasti eum in fortitudine tua, ad habitaculum sanctum tuum.
 Nations rose up, and were angry: sorrows took hold on the inhabitants of Philisthiim.
Ascenderunt populi, et irati sunt : dolores obtinuerunt habitatores Philisthiim.
 Then were the princes of Edom troubled, trembling seized on the stout men of Moab: all the inhabitants of Chanaan became stiff.
Tunc conturbati sunt principes Edom, robustos Moab obtinuit tremor : obriguerunt omnes habitatores Chanaan.
 Let fear and dread fall upon them, in the greatness of thy arm: let them become unmoveable as a stone, until thy people, O Lord, pass by: until this thy people pass by, which thou hast possessed.
Irruat super eos formido et pavor, in magnitudine brachii tui : fiant immobiles quasi lapis, donec pertranseat populus tuus, Domine, donec pertranseat populus tuus iste, quem possedisti.
 Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thy inheritance, in thy most firm habitation which thou hast made, O Lord; thy sanctuary, O Lord, which thy hands have established.
Introduces eos, et plantabis in monte haereditatis tuae, firmissimo habitaculo tuo quod operatus es, Domine : sanctuarium tuum, Domine, quod firmaverunt manus tuae.
 The Lord shall reign for ever and ever.
Dominus regnabit in aeternum et ultra.
 For Pharao went in on horseback with his chariots and horsemen into the sea: and the Lord brought back upon them the waters of the sea: but the children of Israel walked on dry ground in the midst thereof.
Ingressus est enim eques Pharao cum curribus et equitibus ejus in mare : et reduxit super eos Dominus aquas maris : filii autem Israel ambulaverunt per siccum in medio ejus.
 So Mary the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand: and all the women went forth after her with timbrels and with dances:
Sumpsit ergo Maria prophetissa, soror Aaron, tympanum in manu sua : egressaeque sunt omnes mulieres post eam cum tympanis et choris,
 And she began the song to them, saying: Let us sing to the Lord, for he is gloriously magnified, the horse and his rider he hath thrown into the sea.
quibus praecinebat, dicens : Cantemus Domino, gloriose enim magnificatus est : equum et ascensorem ejus dejecit in mare.
 And Moses brought Israel from the Red Sea, and they went forth into the wilderness of Sur: and they marched three days through the wilderness, and found no water.
Tulit autem Moyses Israel de mari Rubro, et egressi sunt in desertum Sur : ambulaveruntque tribus diebus per solitudinem, et non inveniebant aquam.
 And they came into Mara, and they could not drink the waters of Mara, because they were bitter: whereupon he gave a name also agreeable to the place, calling it Mara, that is, bitterness.
Et venerunt in Mara, nec poterant bibere aquas de Mara, eo quod essent amarae : unde et congruum loco nomen imposuit, vocans illum Mara, id est, amaritudinem.
 And the people murmured against Moses, saying: What shall we drink?
Et murmuravit populus contra Moysen, dicens : Quid bibemus?
 But he cried to the Lord, and he shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, they were turned into sweetness. There he appointed him ordinances, and judgments, and there he proved him,
At ille clamavit ad Dominum, qui ostendit ei lignum : quod cum misisset in aquas, in dulcedinem versae sunt : ibi constituit ei praecepta, atque judicia, et ibi tentavit eum,
 Saying: If thou wilt hear the voice of the Lord thy God, and do what is right before him, and obey his commandments, and keep all his precepts, none of the evils that I laid upon Egypt, will I bring upon thee: for I am the Lord thy healer.
dicens : Si audieris vocem Domini Dei tui, et quod rectum est coram eo feceris, et obedieris mandatis ejus, custodierisque omnia praecepta illius, cunctum languorem, quem posui in Aegypto, non inducam super te : ego enim Dominus sanator tuus.
 And the children of Israel came into Elim, where there were twelve fountains of water, and seventy palm trees: and they encamped by the waters.
Venerunt autem in Elim filii Israel, ubi erant duodecim fontes aquarum, et septuaginta palmae : et castrametati sunt juxta aquas.
