1When Israel went forth from Egypt, The house of Jacob from a people of 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.
5What ails you, O sea, that you flee? O Jordan, that you turn back?
6O mountains, that you skip like rams? O hills, like lambs?
7Tremble, O earth, before the Lord, Before the God of Jacob,
8Who turned the rock into a pool of water, The flint into a fountain of water.
