1 After Israel left Egypt, the clan of Jacob left those barbarians behind;
2 Judah became holy land for him, Israel the place of holy rule.
3 Sea took one look and ran the other way; River Jordan turned around and ran off.
4 The mountains turned playful and skipped like rams, the hills frolicked like spring lambs.
5 What's wrong with you, Sea, that you ran away? and you, River Jordan, that you turned and ran off?
6 And mountains, why did you skip like rams? and you, hills, frolic like spring lambs?
7 Tremble, Earth! You're in the Lord's presence! in the presence of Jacob's God.
8 He turned the rock into a pool of cool water, turned flint into fresh spring water.
