11 c“Who is like you, O Lord, among the gods?
Who is like you, majestic in holiness,
12 You stretched out fyour right hand;
the earth swallowed them.
you have iguided them by your strength to your holy abode.
14 jThe peoples have heard; they tremble;
pangs have seized the inhabitants of Philistia.
15 Now are the chiefs of Edom kdismayed;
trembling seizes the leaders of lMoab;

16 Terror and ndread fall upon them;
because of the greatness of your arm, they are still oas a stone,
till your people, O Lord, pass by,
till the people pass by whom pyou have purchased.
17 You will bring them in and qplant them on your own mountain,
the place, O Lord, which you have made for your abode,
rthe sanctuary, O Lord, which your hands have established.
18 sThe Lord will reign forever and ever.”

z“Sing to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously;
the horse and his rider he has thrown into the sea.”

There the Lord4 made for them a statute and a rule, and there he ftested them, 26 saying, g“If you will diligently listen to the voice of the Lord your God, and do that which is right in his eyes, and give ear to his commandments and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the hdiseases on you that I put on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, iyour healer.”
27 Then jthey came to Elim, where there were twelve springs of water and seventy palm trees, and they encamped there by the water.
