When a Israel went out of Egypt,
The house of Jacob b from a people 1 of strange language, 2 c Judah became His sanctuary,
And Israel His dominion.
d The sea saw it and fled;
e Jordan turned back. 4 f The mountains skipped like rams,
The little hills like lambs.
g What ails you, O sea, that you fled?
O Jordan, that you turned back? 6 O mountains, that you skipped like rams?
O little hills, like lambs?
Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord,
At the presence of the God of Jacob, 8 h Who turned the rock into a pool of water,
The flint into a fountain of waters.
