When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language,
Judah was his holiness, and Israel his dominion.
The sea saw it and fled; Jordan was driven back.
The mountains skipped like rams and the little hills like lambs.
What came upon thee, O thou sea, that thou didst flee? And thou O Jordan, that thou wast driven back?
Ye mountains, why didst ye skip like rams and ye little hills, like lambs?
At the presence of the Lord, the earth trembles, at the presence of the God of Jacob,
who turned the rock into a reservoir of water, the flint into a fountain of waters.
