Tree of Life Version
1 When Israel came out of Egypt,
Jacob’s house from a people foreign-speaking,
2 Judah became His Sanctuary,
Israel His dominion.
3 The sea saw and fled,
the Jordan turned back.
4 The mountains skipped like rams,
the hills like lambs.
5 Why was it, O sea, that you fled?
O Jordan, that you turned back?
6 O mountains, that you skipped like rams?
O hills, like lambs?
7 Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord,
at the presence of the God of Jacob,
8 who turned the rock into a pool of water,
the flint into a spring of water.
