Exodus 15:8

Context

15:8 By the blast of your nostrils 1  the waters were piled up,

the flowing water stood upright like a heap, 2 

and the deep waters were solidified in the heart of the sea.

1 sn The phrase “the blast of your nostrils” is a bold anthropomorphic expression for the wind that came in and dried up the water.

2 tn The word “heap” describes the walls of water. The waters, which are naturally fluid, stood up as though they were a heap, a mound of earth. Likewise, the flowing waters deep in the ocean solidified – as though they were turned to ice (U. Cassuto, Exodus, 175).
