Isaiah 51:9-10New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Awake, awake, put on strength,
    arm of the Lord!
Awake as in the days of old,
    in ages long ago!
Was it not you who crushed Rahab,[a]
    you who pierced the dragon?
10 Was it not you who dried up the sea,
    the waters of the great deep,[b]
You who made the depths of the sea into a way
    for the redeemed to pass through?
