The verses "מי אל כמוך" allude to
the Thirteen Divine Attributes of Mercy יי
יי א-ל רחום. While saying these verses, keep in mind
(but do not articulate) the corresponding attribute printed above it in small type. The
same is true with the verses "מן המצר," which correspond to the nine attributes in the verse
If wearing a tallit katan, shake out its corners over the water.
