The LORD has made Himself known; He has executed judgment. In the work of his own hands the wicked is snared. Higgaion Selah.
"The Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I stretch out My hand on Egypt and bring out the sons of Israel from their midst."
"Thus I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and he will chase after them; and I will be honored through Pharaoh and all his army, and the Egyptians will know that I am the LORD." And they did so.
As Pharaoh drew near, the sons of Israel looked, and behold, the Egyptians were marching after them, and they became very frightened; so the sons of Israel cried out to the LORD.
When Israel saw the great power which the LORD had used against the Egyptians, the people feared the LORD, and they believed in the LORD and in His servant Moses.
"Now the generation to come, your sons who rise up after you and the foreigner who comes from a distant land, when they see the plagues of the land and the diseases with which the LORD has afflicted it, will say,
"For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red Sea before you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites who were beyond the Jordan, to Sihon and Og, whom you utterly destroyed.

"Now, O LORD our God, I pray, deliver us from his hand that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that You alone, O LORD, are God."
'For I will defend this city to save it for My own sake and for My servant David's sake.'"
Give ear to my words, O LORD, Consider my groaning.
Upon the wicked He will rain snares; Fire and brimstone and burning wind will be the portion of their cup.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer.
The righteous will rejoice when he sees the vengeance; He will wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
Let them be ashamed and dismayed forever, And let them be humiliated and perish,
With the ten-stringed lute and with the harp, With resounding music upon the lyre.
If you have been snared with the words of your mouth, Have been caught with the words of your mouth,
An evil man is ensnared by the transgression of his lips, But the righteous will escape from trouble.
"Many will stumble over them, Then they will fall and be broken; They will even be snared and caught."
So the word of the LORD to them will be, "Order on order, order on order, Line on line, line on line, A little here, a little there," That they may go and stumble backward, be broken, snared and taken captive.
