1 When Israel came out of Egypt:
and the house of Jacob from among a people
of an alien tongue,
2 Judah became his sanctuary:
and Israel his dominion.
3 The sea saw that, and fled:
Jordan was driven back.
4 The mountains skipped like rams:
and the little hills like young sheep.
5 What ailed you, O sea, that you fled:
O Jordan, that you were driven back?
6 You mountains, that you skipped like rams:
and you little hills like young sheep?
7 Tremble, O 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:
and the flint-stone into a welling spring.
