1 When the Israelites went out of Egypt, the people of Jacob left that foreign country.
2 Then Judah became God's holy place; Israel became the land he ruled.
3 The Red Sea looked and ran away; the Jordan River turned back.
4 The mountains danced like sheep and the hills like little lambs.
5 Sea, why did you run away? Jordan, why did you turn back?
6 Mountains, why did you dance like sheep? Hills, why did you dance like little lambs?
7 Earth, shake with fear before the Lord, before the God of Jacob.
8 He turned a rock into a pool of water, a hard rock into a spring of water.
