Tremble, O earth, before the Lord, Before the God of Jacob,
Bow Your heavens, O LORD, and come down; Touch the mountains, that they may smoke.
The Lord GOD of hosts, The One who touches the land so that it melts, And all those who dwell in it mourn, And all of it rises up like the Nile And subsides like the Nile of Egypt;
