When Israel came out of Egypt- the house of Jacob from a people who spoke a foreign language-
Judah became His sanctuary, Israel, His dominion.
The sea looked and fled;a the Jordan turned back.b4
The mountains skipped like rams, the hills, like lambs.
Why was it, sea, that you fled? Jordan, that you turned back?
Mountains, that you skipped like rams? Hills, like lambs?
Tremble, earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob,
who turned the rock into a pool of water, the flint into a spring of water.c
