*The Song of Moses and Miriam
Moses and the Israelites exalted the Lord in song.
(Note: The song talks about the Lord’s greatness against the Pharaoh and his army.
How the people were saved because the Lord hurled the enemy into the deep sea.
The people exalted the Lord as He reigns forever and forever.)
*The Waters of Marah and Elim
Moses led the people from the Red Sea to the Desert of Shur.
The people traveled three days without water and they became angry against Moses.
The people arrived at Marah which means bitter because the water was unfit to drink.
The people cried to Moses the water was bitter. What are they to drink.
Moses called upon the Lord. He commanded Moses to throw a piece of wood upon the waters.
The waters became fit to drink.
The Lord instructed the people if they obey his commands no illnesses would come upon them.
The Lord said He would heal them.
The people came to Elim where there were twelve springs and seventy palms.
The people camped near the water.
