Moses sang these words, "The Lord is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation; This is my God, and I will praise Him; My father’s God, and I will extol Him."
This same exact phrase can also be found in Isaiah 12:2 and Psalm 118:14. It is a national phrase for the nation of Israel.
"The Lord is my strength and song..."
The New international version of the Bible has substituted the word 'song' for defense. The Lord is my strength and defense. Other translations have also used this substitution, but when you study the original Hebrew word it is a musical word.
The Hebrew word for the phrase and song is pronounced zim-raw. It looks like this in the original Hebrew language: זִמְרָה
It is transliterated zimrâh and means a musical piece or song to be accompanied by an instrument. It also means melody and psalm.
Zimrah actually comes from Zamar which is another Hebrew word.
Zamar is used at least forty-five times through the Bible.
According to the Strong's Biblical Concordance Zamar means
Moses is a very popular and well known person. His life and story and legacy are as rich as Abraham, and any other historical figure. Moses was a human being who lived and walked the earth just like you and me. He experienced all the same type of human emotions, excitement, fear, rejection, sadness, anger, joy, wonder, and awe.
After an intense project of leading the nation of Israel out of Egypt to safety and complete victory over the Egyptian army chasing them, He makes this declaration: The Lord is my Song. The Lord is my Song. The Lord is my music. He is my Praise. He is my instrumentation. He is my melody. He is my Psalm.
Moses recognized the celebration and joy experienced from a victory and act of freedom is a direct result of The Lord's leading and intervention.
Moses simply attributed all success to the Lord. He took no credit for himself. Moses has a song to sing. His song is the Lord.
The Future Song
In the last book of the Bible which is called The Book of The Revelation, we can read in chapter 15, .."and they were singing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, “Great and marvelous are Your works, O Lord God, the Almighty; Righteous and true are Your ways, King of the nations!"
Moses has a song. Like all songs, it has a message. Moses' song is an eternal song. We sing it today on earth and we will sing in Heaven. Selah.
Over the course of history, writing has proven to change lives. I write to continue the legacy.
