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