Psalm 114

Psalm 114

1 When Israel came forth out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language,

2 Judah became [God’s] sanctuary (the Holy Place of His habitation), and Israel His dominion.(A)

3 The [Red] Sea looked and fled; the Jordan [River] was turned back.(B)

4 The mountains skipped like rams, the little hills like lambs.

5 What ails you, O [Red] Sea, that you flee? O Jordan, that you turn back?

6 You mountains, that you skip like rams, and you little hills, like lambs?

7 Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob,

8 Who turned the rock into a pool of water, the flint into a fountain of waters.(C)
