(A)Was your wrath against the rivers, O Lord?
    Was your anger against the rivers,
    (B)or your indignation against the sea,
(C)when you rode on your horses,
    (D)on your chariot of salvation?
You stripped the sheath from your bow,
    calling for many arrows.[a] Selah
    (E)You split the earth with rivers.
10 (F)The mountains saw you and writhed;
    the raging waters swept on;
(G)the deep gave forth its voice;
    (H)it lifted its hands on high.
11 (I)The sun and moon stood still in their place
    (J)at the light of your arrows as they sped,
    at the flash of your glittering spear.
12 (K)You marched through the earth in fury;
    (L)you threshed the nations in anger.
13 (M)You went out for the salvation of your people,
    for the salvation of (N)your anointed.
(O)You crushed the head of the house of the wicked,
    laying him bare from thigh to neck.[b] Selah
