1 When the people of Israel left Egypt, 1 when Jacob's descendants left that foreign land,
2 Judah became the Lord's holy people, Israel became his own possession.
3 The Red Sea looked and ran away; 2 the Jordan River stopped flowing.
4 The mountains skipped like goats; the hills jumped around like lambs.
5 What happened, Sea, to make you run away? And you, O Jordan, why did you stop flowing?
6 You mountains, why did you skip like goats? You hills, why did you jump around like lambs?
7 Tremble, earth, at the Lord's coming, at the presence of the God of Jacob,
8 who changes rocks into pools of water 3 and solid cliffs into flowing springs.
