1 When Israel went forth out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of a strange language:
2 Judah became his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.
3 The sea beheld it, and fled: the Jordan was driven backward.
4 The mountains skipped like wethers, the hills like lambs.
5 What aileth thee, O sea, that thou fleest? thou, O Jordan, that thou art driven backward?
6 Ye mountains, that ye skip like wethers? ye hills, like lambs?
7 At the presence of the Lord tremble, O earth, at the presence of the God of Jacob;
8 Who changeth the rock into a pool of water, the flint into a fountain of water.
