It is my opinion that when Nachshon entered the Reed-Sea he recited the Kaddish Prayer -קדיש of the Sanctification and Exaltation of G-d’s Name.
This opinion is supported by the following:
·       Nachshon- נחשון     = 414
·       Kaddish-       קדיש   = 414
Thus Nachshon entered the Sea up to his neck, recited the Kaddish Prayer in total faith in Hashem, sanctified the Name of G-d and then the miracle of the splitting of the waters occurred.
My Rabbi and Teacher Rabbi Avraham Sutton writes:
The word kaddish means sanctification. Whenever we say the Kaddish, we intend to sanctify God’s Name in the world, to proclaim our belief in His existence, His oneness, and His providence, and, if necessary, to die for this belief. Through Kaddish we literally draw down greater and greater revelations of God’s oneness into the world. Kaddish has the power to dispel darkness. Kaddish is thus like an elevator that we enter at certain key junctures in our prayers, as a means of lifting us up to the next level of prayer. As we get closer and closer to Hashem in our prayers, we peel off the illusion that there is anything else but God. This is exactly the function of Kaddish.
The Sephardic version of the Kaddish Prayer reads thus (translation Rabbi Sutton):
Kaddish Prayer
תפלת קדיש

May His great Name be magnified and sanctified [and ever more greatly revealed] (Amen)
יִתְגַּדַּל וְיִתְקַדַּשׁ שְׁמֵיהּ רַבָּא. אָמֵן:

In the world that He created according to His will. May He establish His eternal kingdom, cause His redemption to spring forth, and hasten [the coronation of] His anointed mashiach (Amen)
בְּעָלְמָא דִּי בְרָא כִרְעוּתֵהּ. וְיַמְלִיךְ מַלְכוּתֵהּ וְיַצְמַח פֻּרְקָנֵהּ וִיקָרֵב מְשִׁיחֵהּ. אָמֵן:

2166+11 words=2177=17=8

May His Great Name be blessed [and increasingly revealed] in this world and all worlds, forever and for all eternity
יְהֵא שְׁמֵיהּ רַבָּא מְבָרַךְ לְעָלַם לְעָלְמֵי עָלְמַיָּא:

Blessed, praised, glorified, exalted, sublime, esteemed, elevated, and illuminated is the Name of the blessed Holy One (Amen)
יִתְבָּרַךְ וְיִשְׁתַּבַּח וְיִתְפָּאַר וְיִתְרוֹמַם וְיִתְנַשֵּׂא וְיִתְהַדָּר וְיִתְעַלֶּה וְיִתְהַלָּל שְׁמֵהּ דְּקֻדְשָׁא בְּרִיךְ הוּא. אָמֵן:

[We pray] for Israel, for our sages, for their students and for their students’ students who are occupied in [learning] the holy Torah, here and everywhere. May we, they, and you experience the grace, loving-kindness, and compassion of the Master of heaven and earth, and say Amen

5193=18 (final letters)
The words "Amen"- אָמֵן has a gematria of 91=10=1 which corresponds to the joint gematria of the Names "Hashem"- יהוה (26) and "Adnut"-   אדני (65)-אידהנויה.
The letters of the word "Amen"- אָמֵן correspond to the initial letters of the words:
I hereby give up my life
אני מוסר נפשי

807+3 words=810
