1 When Israel left Egypt, when Jacob's family left people who spoke a foreign language,
2 Judah became his holy place and Israel became his government.
3 The Red Sea looked at this and ran away. The Jordan River turned back.
4 The mountains jumped like rams. The hills jumped like lambs.
5 Red Sea, why did you run away? Jordan River, what made you turn back?
6 Mountains, what made you jump like rams? Hills, what made you jump like lambs?
7 Earth, tremble and shake in the presence of Jehovah, in the presence of the God of Jacob.
8 He turns a rock into a pool filled with water and turns flint into a spring flowing with water.
