    with hailstones(G) and bolts of lightning.(H)
13 The Lord thundered(I) from heaven;
    the voice of the Most High resounded.[a]
14 He shot his arrows(J) and scattered the enemy,
    with great bolts of lightning(K) he routed them.(L)
15 The valleys of the sea were exposed
    and the foundations(M) of the earth laid bare

    he drew me out of deep waters.(P)

    he rescued me because he delighted in me.(V)
