GOD is a man of war


Exodus 15:1-19

King James Version

15 Then sang Moses and the children of Israel 

this song unto the Lord, 

and spake, saying, 

I will sing unto the Lord, 

for he hath triumphed gloriously: 

the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.

2 The Lord is my strength and song, 

and he is become my salvation: 

he is my God, 

and I will prepare him an habitation; 

my father's God, 

and I will exalt him.

3 The Lord is a man of war: 

the Lord is his name.

4 Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: 

his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea.

5 The depths have covered them: 

they sank into the bottom as a stone.

6 Thy right hand, O Lord, 

is become glorious in power: 

thy right hand, O Lord, 

hath dashed in pieces the enemy.

7 And in the greatness of thine excellency 

thou hast overthrown them that rose up against thee: 

thou sentest forth thy wrath, 

which consumed them as stubble.

8 And with the blast of thy nostrils 

the waters were gathered together, 

the floods stood upright as an heap, 

and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea.

9 The enemy said, 

I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; 

my lust shall be satisfied upon them; 

I will draw my sword, 

my hand shall destroy them.

10 Thou didst blow with thy wind, 

the sea covered them: 

they sank as lead in the mighty waters.

11 Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods? 

who is like thee, 

glorious in holiness, 

fearful in praises, 

doing wonders?

12 Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, 

the earth swallowed them.

13 Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people 

which thou hast redeemed: 

thou hast guided them in thy strength 

unto thy holy habitation.

14 The people shall hear, 

and be afraid: 

sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina.

15 Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; 

the mighty men of Moab, 

trembling shall take hold upon them; 

all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away.

16 Fear and dread shall fall upon them; 

by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; 

till thy people pass over, O Lord, 

till the people pass over, 

which thou hast purchased.

17 Thou shalt bring them in, 

and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance, 

in the place, O Lord, 

which thou hast made for thee to dwell in, 

in the Sanctuary, O Lord, 

which thy hands have established.

18 The Lord shall reign for ever and ever.

19 For the horse of Pharaoh went in 

with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, 

and the Lord brought again 

the waters of the sea upon them; 

but the children of Israel went on dry land 

in the midst of the sea.

Moses and the Israelites sang that song, in honor of GOD.

Calling Him "a man of war".

GOD makes war.

On those who make war upon His chosen.

But that's for another post.

Know there's a spirit behind wars.

The cause of all pain.

And hardship.
