1When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a barbarous people:
2Judea made his sanctuary, Israel his dominion.
3The sea saw and fled: Jordan was turned back.
4The mountains skipped like rams, and the hills like the lambs of the flock.
5What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou didst flee: and thou, O Jordan, that thou wast turned back?
6Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams, and ye hills, like lambs of the flock?
7At the presence of the Lord the earth was moved, at the presence of the God of Jacob:
8Who turned the rock into pools of water, and the stony hill into fountains of waters.
9Not to us, O Lord, not to us; but to thy name give glory.
10For thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake: lest the gentiles should say: Where is their God?
11But our God is in heaven: he hath done all things whatsoever he would.
12The idols of the gentiles are silver and gold, the works of the hands of men.
13They have mouths and speak not: they have eyes and see not.
14They have ears and hear not: they have noses and smell not.
15They have hands and feel not: they have feet and walk not: neither shall they cry out through their throat.
16Let them that make them become like unto them: and all such as trust in them.
17The house of Israel hath hoped in the Lord: he is their helper and their protector.
18The house of Aaron hath hoped in the Lord: he is their helper and their protector.
19They that fear the Lord hath hoped in the Lord: he is their helper and their protector.
20The Lord hath been mindful of us, and hath blessed us. He hath blessed the house of Israel: he hath blessed the house of Aaron.
21He hath blessed all that fear the Lord, both little and great.
22May the Lord add blessings upon you: upon you, and upon your children.
23Blessed be you of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
24The heaven of heaven is the Lord's: but the earth he has given to the children of men.
25The dead shall not praise thee, O Lord: nor any of them that go down to hell.
26But we that live bless the Lord: from this time now and for ever.
