They named the city Dan, after the name of their ancestor Dan, who was born to Israel. The city was formerly named Laish.
All the Israelites from Dan to Beer-sheba and from the land of Gilead came out, and the community assembled as one body before the LORD at Mizpah.
I looked at the mountains, and they were quaking; all the hills shook.
The mountains see You and shudder; a downpour of water sweeps by. The deep roars with its voice and lifts its waves high.
They grasp bow and javelin. They are cruel and show no mercy. Their voice roars like the sea, and they ride on horses, lined up like men in battle formation against you, Daughter Zion.
At the sound of the stomping hooves of his stallions, the rumbling of his chariots, and the clatter of their wheels, fathers will not turn back for their sons, because they will be utterly helpless
The horses' hooves then hammered-- the galloping, galloping of his stallions.

The mountains quake before Him, and the hills melt; the earth tremblesat His presence-- the world and all who live in it.
The crack of the whip and rumble of the wheel, galloping horse and jolting chariot!
all that is in it
[A Davidic psalm.] The earth and everything in it, the world and its inhabitants, belong to the LORD;
