The Zohar continues to explain that even if the verse above express only judgment, it had mercy in it because it says ‘like a warrior’ and ‘like a man of war’, not ‘A warrior’, ‘a man of war’. The lesson is that when we go to war, our point of origin is judgment but YHVH make wars for us with different levels of mercy.
“כִּי חֵלֶק יְהֹוָה עַמּוֹ יַעֲקֹב חֶבֶל נַחֲלָתוֹ”
“For the YHVH’S portion is His people; Jacob is the allotment of His inheritance.”
YHVH chose us to be his people and we should be happy that.
After Moses told the Israelites that YHVH will fight for them and they should be silent, they obeyed but Moses plead to God that answered;
“וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל מֹשֶׁה מַה תִּצְעַק אֵלָי דַּבֵּר אֶל בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל וְיִסָּעוּ”
“Then YHVH said to Moses, “Why do you cry to me? Tell the people of Israel to go forward.”
In Sifra D’tzniuta (End of Terumah), chapter 4 #55,56, the Zohar explains this verse, revealing that in order to save the Israelites and split the sea, they needed to reveal the Light of Chokmah using the 72 names. They come out from Exodus 14:19,20,21. These three verses represent the three columns.Each name has the aspect of Right, Left and Center that brings balance and ability to draw the Light of Chokmah from a supernal level that is called ‘Mazala’.
