Ex 15:2  Der Herr ist meine Stärke und mein Lobgesang, und mein Heil.
Das ist mei Gott, ich will ihn preisen; er ist meines Vaters Gott, ich will ihn erheben.
Ex 15:11  Herr, wer ist dir gleich unter den Göttern, der so mächtig, so heilig,
so schrecklich, so löblich, so wundertätig ist?

Ex 15:2  The Lord is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation:
he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt him.
Ex 15:11  Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness,
fearful in praises, doing wonders?
Ps 104:33  I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
