1When Israel went out of Egypt,
the house of Jacob from a people of foreign language,
2Judah became his sanctuary,
Israel his dominion.
3The sea saw it, and fled.
The Jordan was driven back.
4The mountains skipped like rams,
the little hills like lambs.
5What was it, you sea, that you fled?
You Jordan, that you turned back?
6You mountains, that you skipped like rams;
you little hills, like lambs?
7Tremble, you earth, at the presence of the Lord,
at the presence of the God of Jacob,
8who turned the rock into a pool of water,
the flint into a spring of waters.
