See the discussion in S. R. Driver, The Book of Exodus (The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges), Cambridge, 1911, pp. 129 ff. The antiquity, even Mosaic date, of the refrain, vs. 21, is recognized by all. The older scholars defended an early date for part of the poem, perhaps as far as vs. 10; in recent times, it is being increasingly recognized that the poem is a unit, however. Cf. R. H. Pfeiffer, Introduction to the Old Testament, New York, 1941 ( 2nd ed. 1948), p. 281; also A. H. McNeile , The Book of Exodus (Westminster Commentaries), 2nd ed., London, 1917, pp. 88 ff. Note also the comments of P. Haupt in "Moses' Song of Triumph", AJSL XX ( 1903-04), pp. 150-154.

This is based partly upon a new analysis of the route of the Exodus by Albright, "Exploring in Sinai with the University of California African Expedition", BASOR ♯109 ( 1948), pp. 13-16. The bearing of the song on the problem of the crossing of the Reed Sea will be discussed in a forthcoming study by Prof. Albright.

See the detailed treatment of this psalm in Chapter V.

The same theophany, with minor variations, is also recorded in Ps. 68:8-9 (on this poem see footnote 12).

Prof. Albright's forthcoming studies of Hab. 3 and Ps. 68 show that these pieces contain a high proportion of early materials which belong to the corpus of ancient Yahwistic poetry. We are indebted to Prof. Albright for making available to us the results of these studies. In addition much material for this dissertation has been gathered in seminars conducted by Prof. Albright dealing with II Sam. 22 = Ps. 18, and Ps. 68.
13.
Because of their fragmentary nature these pieces are not susceptible to the kind of analysis undertaken in these studies. Occasional striking bits of evidence are to be found, and references to these will be found in the body of the dissertation.

Studies by Ginsberg, Gaster, Patton and others (see the bibliography for references) have greatly increased our
