If He had brought us out from Egypt and had not carried out judgments against them Dayeinu! (It would have sufficed)
If He had carried out judgments against them, and not against their idols Dayeinu!
If He had destroyed their idols and not killed their first born Dayeinu!
If He had smitten their first born and not given us their wealth Dayeinu!
If He had given us their wealth and not split the Sea for us Dayeinu!
