12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,(A)
    the people he chose(B) for his inheritance.(C)
13 From heaven the Lord looks down(D)
    and sees all mankind;(E)
14 from his dwelling place(F) he watches
    all who live on earth—
15 he who forms(G) the hearts of all,
    who considers everything they do.(H)

16 No king is saved by the size of his army;(I)
    no warrior escapes by his great strength.
17 A horse(J) is a vain hope for deliverance;
    despite all its great strength it cannot save.
18 But the eyes(K) of the Lord are on those who fear him,
    on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,(L)
19 to deliver them from death(M)
    and keep them alive in famine.(N)

20 We wait(O) in hope for the Lord;
    he is our help and our shield.
21 In him our hearts rejoice,(P)
    for we trust in his holy name.(Q)
22 May your unfailing love(R) be with us, Lord,
    even as we put our hope in you.

Your right hand,(A) Lord,
    was majestic in power.
Your right hand,(B) Lord,
    shattered(C) the enemy.

“In the greatness of your majesty(D)
    you threw down those who opposed you.
You unleashed your burning anger;(E)
    it consumed(F) them like stubble.
By the blast of your nostrils(G)
    the waters piled up.(H)
The surging waters stood up like a wall;(I)
    the deep waters congealed in the heart of the sea.(J)
The enemy boasted,
    ‘I will pursue,(K) I will overtake them.
I will divide the spoils;(L)
    I will gorge myself on them.
I will draw my sword
    and my hand will destroy them.’
10 But you blew with your breath,(M)
    and the sea covered them.
They sank like lead
    in the mighty waters.(N)
11 Who among the gods
    is like you,(O) Lord?
Who is like you—
    majestic in holiness,(P)
awesome in glory,(Q)
    working wonders?(R)

37 On the last and greatest day of the festival,(A) Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink.(B) 38 Whoever believes(C) in me, as Scripture has said,(D) rivers of living water(E) will flow from within them.”[a](F) 39 By this he meant the Spirit,(G) whom those who believed in him were later to receive.(H) Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.(I)
