1 When Israel came out of Egypt,
the house of Jacob from a people of a strange tongue,
2 Judah became his sanctuary,
Israel his dominion.
3 The sea saw that, and fled;
Jordan was driven back.
4 The mountains skipped like rams,
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,
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 turns the hard rock into a pool of water,
the flint-stone into a springing well.
