1
When Israel came forth out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language;
2
Judah became His sanctuary, Israel His dominion.
3
The sea saw it, and fled;
the Jordan turned backward.
4
The mountains skipped like rams, the hills like young sheep.
5
What aileth thee, O thou sea, that thou fleest?
thou Jordan, that thou turnest backward?
6
Ye mountains, that ye skip like rams;
ye hills, like young sheep?
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.
