"The enemy boasted, 'I will pursue,1 I will overtake them. I will divide the spoils;2 I will gorge myself on them. I will draw my sword and my hand will destroy them.'
But you blew with your breath,3 and the sea covered them. They sank like lead in the mighty waters.411
"Who among the gods is like you,5 O LORD? Who is like you--majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders?
You stretched out6 your right hand and the earth swallowed them.713
"In your unfailing love you will lead8 the people you have redeemed.9 In your strength you will guide them to your holy dwelling.1014
The nations will hear and tremble;11 anguish12 will grip the people of Philistia.1315
The chiefs14 of Edom15 will be terrified, the leaders of Moab will be seized with trembling,16 the peoplea of Canaan will melt17 away;
terror18 and dread will fall upon them. By the power of your arm they will be as still as a stone19-- until your people pass by, O LORD, until the people you boughtb20 pass by.2117
You will bring22 them in and plant23 them on the mountain24 of your inheritance-- the place, O LORD, you made for your dwelling,25 the sanctuary,26 O Lord, your hands established.
The LORD will reign for ever and ever."2719
