When Israel came out of Egypt :
and the house of Jacob from among a people of an alien tongue,
Judah became his sanctuary :
and Israel his dominion.
The sea saw that, and fled :
Jordan was driven back.
The mountains skipped like rams :
and the little hills like young sheep.
What ailed you, O sea, that you fled :
O Jordan, that you were driven back?
You mountains, that you skipped like rams :
and you little hills like young sheep?
Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord :
at the presence of the God of Jacob,
Who turned the rock into a pool of water :
and the flint-stone into a welling spring.
