1When Israel went forth out of Egypt,
The house of Jacob from a people of strange language;
2Judah became his sanctuary,
Israel his dominion.
3The sea saw it, and fled;
Jordan was driven back.
4The mountains skipped like rams,
The little hills like young sheep.
5What aileth thee, O thou sea, that thou fleest?
Thou Jordan, that thou turnest back?
6Ye mountains, that ye skip like rams;
Ye little hills, like young sheep?
7Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord,
At the presence of the God of Jacob;
8Which turned the rock into a pool of water,
The flint into a fountain of waters.
