She prospered their works in the hand of the holy prophet.
They went through the wilderness that was not inhabited, and pitched tents in places where there lay no way.
They stood against their enemies, and were avenged of their adversaries.
When they were thirsty, they called upon thee, and water was given them out of the flinty rock, and their thirst was quenched out of the hard stone.
For by what things their enemies were punished, by the same they in their need were benefited.
For instead of a fountain of a perpetual running river troubled with foul blood,
For a manifest reproof of that commandment, whereby the infants were slain, thou gavest unto them abundance of water by a means which they hoped not for:
Declaring by that thirst then how thou hadst punished their adversaries.
For when they were tried albeit but in mercy chastised, they knew how the ungodly were judged in wrath and tormented, thirsting in another manner than the just.
For these thou didst admonish and try, as a father: but the other, as a severe king, thou didst condemn and punish.
Whether they were absent or present, they were vexed alike.
