"Your right hand,4 O LORD, was majestic in power. Your right hand,5 O LORD, shattered6 the enemy.
In the greatness of your majesty7 you threw down those who opposed you. You unleashed your burning anger;8 it consumed9 them like stubble.

"The enemy boasted, 'I will pursue,14 I will overtake them. I will divide the spoils;15 I will gorge myself on them. I will draw my sword and my hand will destroy them.'
But you blew with your breath,16 and the sea covered them. They sank like lead in the mighty waters.1711

terror31 and dread will fall upon them. By the power of your arm they will be as still as a stone32-- until your people pass by, O LORD, until the people you boughtc33 pass by.34
