- When Israel came out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of foreign tongue,
- Judah became God's sanctuary, Israel his dominion.
- The sea looked and fled, the Jordan turned back;
- the mountains skipped like rams, the hills like lambs.
- Why was it, O sea, that you fled, O Jordan, that you turned back,
- When Israel went forth from Egypt, The house of Jacob from a people of strange language,
- Judah became His sanctuary, Israel, His dominion.
- The sea looked and fled; The Jordan turned back.
- The mountains skipped like rams, The hills, like lambs.
- What ails you, O sea, that you flee? O Jordan, that you turn back?
