6 You alone are the Lord, Creator of the heavens and all the stars, Creator of the earth and those who live on it, Creator of the ocean and all its creatures. You are the source of life, praised by the stars that fill the heavens. 7 You are the Lord our God, the one who chose Abram— you brought him from Ur in Babylonia and named him Abraham. 8 Because he was faithful, you made an agreement to give his descendants the land of the Canaanites and Hittites, of the Amorites and Perizzites, and of the Jebusites and Girgashites. Now you have kept your promise, just as you always do.
9 When our ancestors were in Egypt, you saw their suffering; when they were at the Red Sea,[a] you heard their cry for help. 10 You knew that the King of Egypt and his officials and his nation had mistreated your people. So you worked fearsome miracles against the Egyptians and earned a reputation that still remains. 11 You divided the deep sea, and your people walked through on dry land. But you tossed their enemies in, and they sank down like a heavy stone. 12 Each day you led your people with a thick cloud, and at night you showed the way with a flaming fire. 13 At Sinai you came down from heaven, and you gave your people good laws and teachings that are fair and honest. 14 You commanded them to respect your holy Sabbath, and you instructed your servant Moses to teach them your laws. 15 When they were hungry, you sent bread from heaven, and when they were thirsty, you let water flow from a rock. Then you commanded them to capture the land that you had solemnly promised.
9.9Red Sea: Hebrew yam suph “Sea of Reeds,” one of the marshes of fresh water lakes near the eastern part of the Nile Delta. This identification is based on Exodus 13.17—14.9, which lists the towns on the route of the Israelites before crossing the sea. In the Greek translation of the Scriptures made about 200 B.C., the “Sea of Reeds” was named “Red Sea.”
