- When Israel came out of Egypt, the children of Jacob from a people whose language was strange to them;
- Judah became his holy place, and Israel his kingdom.
- The sea saw it, and went in flight;
Jordan was turned back.
- The mountains were jumping like goats, and the little hills like lambs.
- What was wrong with you, O sea, that you went in flight?
O Jordan, that you were turned back?
- You mountains, why were you jumping like goats, and you little hills like lambs?
- Be troubled, O earth, before the Lord, before the God of Jacob;
- Who made the rock into a water-spring, and the hard stone into a fountain.
