- When Israel came forth out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language;
- Judah became His sanctuary, Israel His dominion.
- The sea saw it, and fled;
the Jordan turned backward.
- The mountains skipped like rams, the hills like young sheep.
- What aileth thee, O thou sea, that thou fleest?
thou Jordan, that thou turnest backward?
- Ye mountains, that ye skip like rams;
ye hills, like young sheep?
- 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.
