1 When Israel went forth out of Egypt,the house of Jacob from a people of foreign language;

2 Judah became his sanctuary,Israel his dominion.

3 The sea saw it, and fled.The Jordan was driven back.

4 The mountains skipped like rams,the little hills like lambs.

5 What was it, you sea, that you fled?You Jordan, that you turned back?

6 You mountains, that you skipped like rams;you little hills, like lambs?

7 Tremble, you earth, at the presence of the Lord,at the presence of the God of Jacob,

8 who turned the rock into a pool of water,the flint into a spring of waters.
