New International Version
The mountains quake before him and the hills melt away. The earth trembles at his presence, the world and all who live in it.
King James Bible
The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.
Darby Bible Translation
The mountains quake before him, and the hills melt, and the earth is upheaved at his presence, and the world, and all that dwell therein.
World English Bible
The mountains quake before him, and the hills melt away. The earth trembles at his presence, yes, the world, and all who dwell in it.
Young's Literal Translation
Mountains have shaken because of Him, And the hills have been melted; And lifted up is the earth at His presence, And the world and all dwelling in it.
Nahum 1:5 Parallel

If then, the seas, the rivers, the mountains, the hills, the rocks, and the earth itself, fail before Jehovah, or flee from his presence, how shall Nineveh and the Assyrian empire stand before him?

2 Samuel 22:8
The earth trembled and quaked, the foundations of the heavens shook; they trembled because he was angry.
The earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains shook; they trembled because he was angry.
Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth.
