6 Your right hand, The LORD, is glorious in power, Your right hand, The LORD, dashes the enemy in pieces.
7 In the greatness of your excellency, you overthrow those who rise up against you: You send forth your wrath. It consumes them as stubble.
8 With the blast of your nostrils the waters were piled up. The floods stood upright as a heap. The deeps were congealed in the heart of the sea.

13 "You, in your lovingkindness, have led the people that you have redeemed. You have guided them in your strength to your holy habitation.
14 The peoples have heard. They tremble. Pangs have taken hold on the inhabitants of Philistia.
15 Then the chiefs of Edom were dismayed. Trembling takes hold of the mighty men of Moab. All the inhabitants of Canaan are melted away.
16 Terror and dread falls on them. By the greatness of your arm they are as still as a stone; Until your people pass over, The LORD, Until the people pass over who you have purchased.
17 You shall bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of your inheritance, The place, The LORD, which you have made for yourself to dwell in; The sanctuary, Lord, which your hands have established.
18 The LORD shall reign forever and ever."

26 and he said, "If you will diligently listen to the voice of The LORD your God, and will do that which is right in his eyes, and will pay attention to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you, which I have put on the Egyptians; for I am The LORD who heals you."
