1
When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language,
2
Judah was his sanctuary, Israel his dominion.
3
The sea saw it and fled, the Jordan turned back;
4
The mountains skipped like rams, the hills like lambs.
5
What ailed thee, thou sea, that thou fleddest?
thou Jordan, that thou turnedst back?
6
Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams?
ye hills, like lambs?
7
Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the +God of Jacob,
8
Who turned the rock into a pool of water, the flint into a fountain of waters.
