  2. Why do we think we might sing this song in heaven?
  3. Who was Miriam?
  4. What is the song of Moses about?
  5. Why can we as Christians be joyful?
  6. Define a “type.”


  1. The song of Moses is the first song sung by humans recorded in the Bible.
  2. Revelation 15:3 speaks of the saints singing the Song of Moses, which may be the song here in Exodus 15.
  3. She was the sister of Moses and Aaron, and a prophetess in Israel.
  4. The song of Moses is a celebration of God’s great victory over Pharaoh and the Egyptian army, and a celebration of God’s great deliverance of His people, Israel.
  5. Because we have been redeemed, Satan has been conquered, and the power of sin has been broken!
  6. A type is an Old Testament person, place, thing, or event that illustrates a New Testament truth.


  1. When Israel returns to the Lord, the Lord will fight for Israel and they will joyfully sing of God’s triumph over their enemies and His great and loving deliverance and redemption. Look at Psalms 98 and 149. When will Israel sing this new song?
  2. Review the extended type we have in these chapters in Exodus. Chapter 12: Salvation from sin Chapter 13: Separation unto the Lord Chapter 14: Deliverance from the power of sin Chapter 15: The Song of the Redeemed


  1. As Israel sang with joy to the Lord, so we too should sing with joy to the Lord. Sing out this week!
