Those under the waters and those inhabiting them.

Yet the clouds are not broken under it.

At the boundary of light and darkness.

And are astonished at His rebuke.

And by His understanding He breaks up the storm.

His hand pierced the fleeing serpent.

And how small a whisper we hear of Him!
But the thunder of His power who can understand?”
