God’s Deliverance of Israel
1When Israel came out of Egypt —
the house of Jacob from a people
who spoke a foreign language —
2Judah became his sanctuary,
Israel, his dominion.
3The sea looked and fled;
the Jordan turned back.
4The mountains skipped like rams,
the hills, like lambs.
5Why was it, sea, that you fled?
Jordan, that you turned back?
6Mountains, that you skipped like rams?
Hills, like lambs?
7Tremble, earth, at the presence of the Lord,
at the presence of the God of Jacob,
8who turned the rock into a pool,
the flint into a spring.
