וְאִכָּבְדָה בְפַרְעֹה. מַגִּיד כְּשֶׁיִּפָּרַע הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא מִן הָאֻמּוֹת, שְׁמוֹ מִתְגַּדֵּל בָּעוֹלָם, שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר: וְשַׂמְתִּי בָהֶם אוֹת וְשִׁלַּחְתִּי מֵהֶם פְּלֵיטִים אֶל הַגּוֹיִם תַּרְשִׁישׁ פּוּל וְלוּד מֹשְׁכֵי קֶשֶׁת תּוּבַל וְיָוָן הָאִיִּים הָרְחֹקִים אֲשֶׁר לֹא שָׁמְעוּ אֶת שִׁמְעִי וְלֹא רָאוּ אֶת כְּבוֹדִי וְהִגִּידוּ אֶת כְּבוֹדִי בַּגּוֹיִם (ישעיה סו, יט). וּכְתִיב: כֹּה אָמַר ה', יְגִיעַ מִצְרַיִם וּסְחַר כּוּשׁ וּסְבָאִים אַנְשֵׁי מִדָּה עָלַיִךְ יַעֲבֹרוּ וְלָךְ יִהְיוּ אַחֲרַיִךְ יֵלֵכוּ בַּזִּקִּים יַעֲבֹרוּ וְאֵלַיִךְ יִשְׁתַּחֲווּ אֵלַיִךְ יִתְפַּלָּלוּ אַךְ בָּךְ אֵל וְאֵין עוֹד (ישעיה מה, יד). מַה כְּתִיב אַחֲרָיו, אָכֵן אַתָּה אֵל מִסְתַּתֵּר אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל מוֹשִׁיעַ. וְכֵן הוּא אוֹמֵר: וְנִשְׁפַּטְתִּי אִתּוֹ בְּדֶבֶר וּבְדָם עַמִּים רַבִּים אֲשֶׁר אִתּוֹ (יחזקאל לח, כב). מַה כְּתִיב אַחֲרָיו: וְהִתְגַּדִּלְתִּי וְהִתְקַדִּשְׁתִּי וְנוֹדַעְתִּי לְעֵינֵי גּוֹיִם רַבִּים וְיָדְעוּ כִּי אֲנִי ה'. וְאוֹמֵר: וַיְהִי בְשָׁלֵם סֻכּוֹ וּמְעוֹנָתוֹ בְצִיּוֹן, שָׁמָּה שִׁבַּר רִשְׁפֵי קָשֶׁת מָגֵן וְחֶרֶב וּמִלְחָמָה סֶלָה (תהלים עו, ג-ד), נוֹדָע בִּיהוּדָה אֱלֹהִים (תהלים עו, ב).

And I will get me honor upon Pharaoh (Exod. 14:4). This verse tells us that whenever the Holy One, blessed be He, exacts retribution from the nations, His name is exalted in the world, as it is said: And I will work a sign among them, and I will send such as escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not heard My fame, neither have seen My glory; and they shall declare My glory among the nations (Isa. 66:19). And it is written elsewhere: Thus said the Lord: The labor of Egypt, and the merchandise of Ethiopia, and of the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over unto thee, and they shall be thine; they shall go after thee, in chains they shall come over; and they shall fall down unto thee, they shall make supplication unto thee; surely God is in thee, and there is none else (ibid. 45:14), and that is followed by: And verily, Thou art a God that hidest Thyself, O God of Israel, the Savior (ibid., v. 15). It says also: And will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will cause to rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many peoples that are with him, an overflowing shower, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone (Ezek. 38:22). And following that is written: Thus will I magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will make Myself known in the eyes of many nations; and they shall know that I am the Lord (ibid., v. 23). Furthermore, it says: In Salem also is set His Tabernacle; and His dwelling place in Zion. There He broke the fiery shafts of the bow; the shield and the sword, and the battle. Selah (Ps. 76:3–4). And there too it is written: In Judah is God known, His name is great in Israel (ibid., v. 2).
