This is what the LORD says-- he who made a way through the sea, a path through the mighty waters,117
who drew out2 the chariots and horses,3 the army and reinforcements together,4 and they lay5 there, never to rise again, extinguished, snuffed out like a wick:618
"Forget the former things;7 do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!8 Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert9 and streams in the wasteland.1020
The wild animals11 honor me, the jackals12 and the owls, because I provide water13 in the desert and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen,
the people I formed14 for myself15 that they may proclaim my praise.16
