He is my God and I wyll glorifie hym, he is my fathers God and I wyll lyfte hym vp an hye. Exodus 15:3 The Lorde is a man of warre Iehouah is hys name: Exodus 15:4 Pharaos charettes and his hoste hath he cast in to the sea.

Exodus 15:10 Thou bluest with thy breth & the sea couered them, & they sancke as leed in the mighty waters. Exodus 15:11 Who is lyke vnto the O Lorde amonge goddes: who is lyke the so gloryous in holynes, fearfull, laudable & that shewest wondres? Exodus 15:12 Thou stretchedest out thy ryght hande, and the erth swalowed them. Exodus 15:13 And thou cariedest wyth thy mercye this people which thou delyueredest, & broughtest them wyth thy strength vnto thy holy habitacion.

Exodus 15:17 Brynge them in, & plante them in the mountayns of thyne enherytaunce, the place Lorde whych thou hast made for to dwell in, the sanctuary Lord, which thy handes haue prepared. Exodus 15:18 The Lorde raygne euer & all waye. Exodus 15:19 For Pharao went in on horsebacke with hys charettes & horssemen in to the sea, and the Lord brought the waters of the sea vpon them. And the chyldren of Israel went on drye lande thorow the myddest of the sea.
