The wondrous acts that you saw with your own eyes, the signs and the portents, the mighty hand, and the outstretched arm by which the LORD your God liberated you. Thus will the LORD your God do to all the peoples you now fear.
“The outstretched arm” alludes to Hashem’s “sword.”
It is a reference to a battle between the firstborns and their fathers after Moshe’s warning of the plague of the firstborn.
The firstborns, of course, wanted the Jews to be freed so that they would not die yet the Egyptians still stubbornly refused to let them go.
