1 ALLELUIA. In exitu Israel de Aegypto, domus Iacob de populo barbaro,
2 factus est Iuda sanctuarium eius, Israel potestas eius.
3 Mare vidit et fugit, Iordanis conversus est retrorsum;
4 montes saltaverunt ut arietes, et colles sicut agni ovium. -
5 Quid est tibi, mare, quod fugisti? Et tu, Iordanis, quia conversus es retrorsum?
6 Montes, quod saltastis sicut arietes, et colles, sicut agni ovium?
7 A facie Domini contremisce, terra, a facie Dei Iacob,
8 qui convertit petram in stagna aquarum et silicem in fontes aquarum.
King James Version
1 When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language;
2 Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.
3 The sea saw it, and fled: Jordan was driven back.
4 The mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like lambs.
5 What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou Jordan, that thou wast driven back?
6 Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and ye little hills, like lambs?
7 Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;
8 Which turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.
