gloriose enim magnificatus est:

projecit[dejecit]in mare.

et factus est mihi in salutem:

Deus patris mei, et exaltabo eum.

omnipotens nomen ejus.

15:1  I will sing unto the Lord,
for he hath triumphed gloriously:
the horse and his rider
hath he thrown into the sea.
15:2  The Lord is my strength and song,
and he is become my salvation:
he is my God, and I will glorify him;

Almighty is his name.

15:1  Ik wil zingen voor de HEER,
zijn macht en majesteit zijn groot!
Paarden en ruiters
wierp hij in zee.
15:2  De HEER is mijn sterkte,
hij is mijn beschermer,
de HEER kwam mij te hulp.
Hij is mijn God, hem wil ik eren,
de God van mijn vader,
hem loof en prijs ik.
15:3  Zijn naam is HEER,
hij is een krijgsheld.
(Nieuwe Bijbelvertaling)
