Red Sea disaster: a prayer

Save me, O God;
For the waters are come in unto my soul.
I sink in deep mire,
Where there is no standing:
I am come into deep waters,
Where the flood sweeps over me.

Deliver me out of the mire,
And let me not sink:
Let me be delivered from my enemies,
And out of the deep waters.
Let not the flood sweep over me,
Or the deep swallow me up,
Or the pit close its mouth over me.
O Yahweh, hear me—
For thy loving-kindness is good:
Turn to me
According to the abundance of thy tender mercies.
And hide not thy face from thy servant;
For I am in trouble:
Hear me speedily.

—Psalm 69:1-2, 14-17
