Example text

10 You blew with your wind. The Sea covered him. They sank like lead into the mighty waters The wind motif plays an important role, to be sure (cf. vv. 8, 10). But the chariots are not mired in mud; the Egyptians do not flee in panic. Rather, they pursue the Israelites on a path through the sea as apparent victors moving to the spoil (v. 9), only to be covered by the waters they thought to be as firm as a wall.
