[a](A)Lord, when you went out from Seir,
    when you marched from the plains of Edom,
The earth shook, the heavens poured,
    the clouds poured rain,
The mountains streamed,
    before the Lord, the One of Sinai,
    before the Lord, the God of Israel.
In the days of Shamgar, son of Anath,(B)
    in the days of Jael, caravans ceased:
Those who traveled the roads
    now traveled by roundabout paths.(C)
