Lord, when you went out from Seir,
when you marched through the countryside of Edom,
    the earth shook, the skies poured,
    yes, the dark clouds poured water.
The mountains melted[a] before the Lord—this one of Sinai[b]

in the days of Jael, the main roads were deserted,
and travelers kept to pathways and winding roads.
