Praise to God for His Works During the Exodus
1When Israel went out from Egypt,
the house of Jacob from a people of a strange language,
2Judah became his sanctuary,
Israel his dominion.
3The sea looked and fled;
the Jordan turned back.
4The mountains skipped like rams,
the hills like lambs.#Literally “sons of the flock”
5What’s with you, O sea, that you fled?
O Jordan, that you turned back?
6O mountains, that you skipped like rams?
O hills, like lambs?
7At the presence of the Lord writhe, O earth,#Or “O land”
at the presence of the God of Jacob,
8who turned the rock into a pool of water,
flinty stone into a spring of water.
