the house of Jacob from a people
who spoke a foreign language#Ex 13:3; Ps 81:5  —
2Judah became his sanctuary,
Israel, his dominion.#Ex 15:17; Ps 78:68-69

the Jordan turned back.#Jos 3:13-16

the hills, like lambs.#Ex 19:18; Ps 29:6
5Why was it, sea, that you fled?
Jordan, that you turned back?#Hab 3:8
6Mountains, that you skipped like rams?
Hills, like lambs?#Hab 3:10

at the presence of the God of Jacob,#Ps 96:9

the flint into a spring.#Ex 17:6; Nm 20:11; Dt 8:15
