I looked at the mountains,
and they were quaking;
all the hills shook.
Mount Sinai was completely enveloped in smoke because the Lord came down on it in fire. Its smoke went up like the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mountain shook violently.
Therefore the Lord’s anger burns against His people.
He raised His hand against them and struck them;
the mountains quaked,
and their corpses were like garbage in the streets.
In all this, His anger is not removed,
and His hand is still raised to strike.
When You did awesome works
that we did not expect,
You came down,
and the mountains quaked at Your presence.
If only You would tear the heavens open
and come down,
so that mountains would quake at Your presence—
The mountains melted before the Lord,
even Sinai before the Lord, the God of Israel.
The mountains quake before Him,
and the hills melt;
the earth trembles at His presence—
the world and all who live in it.
The mountains see You and shudder;
a downpour of water sweeps by.
The deep roars with its voice
and lifts its waves high.
