    he who made a way through the sea,
    a path through the mighty waters,(A)
17 who drew out(B) the chariots and horses,(C)
    the army and reinforcements together,(D)
and they lay(E) there, never to rise again,
    extinguished, snuffed out like a wick:(F)
18 “Forget the former things;(G)
    do not dwell on the past.
19 See, I am doing a new thing!(H)

    and streams in the wasteland.(J)
20 The wild animals(K) honor me,
    the jackals(L) and the owls,
because I provide water(M) in the wilderness
    and streams in the wasteland,
to give drink to my people, my chosen,
21     the people I formed(N) for myself(O)
    that they may proclaim my praise.(P)
