David [says]: "the sound of your thunder in the whirlwind." Concerning the Red Sea: for the narrative says that after a south wind had blown up the sea was divided, and while a mist was being gathered and the clouds were coming together the wind was generated. And your retributions, he is saying, were falling like arrows upon the enemies. You entangled the wheels of the Egyptians with the crash of the thunder.[1] But when he says, "My God, set them to a wheel," he means: order them to be racked in all kinds of misfortunes and surround them with evils one after another.[2]
