Psalms - Chapter 114

1

When Israel came out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of foreign tongue,


2

Judah became God's sanctuary, Israel his dominion.


3

The sea looked and fled, the Jordan turned back;


4

the mountains skipped like rams, the hills like lambs.


5

Why was it, O sea, that you fled, O Jordan, that you turned back,


6

you mountains, that you skipped like rams, you 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, the hard rock into springs of water.
