Psalm 114

English Standard Version

1 When Israel went out from Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language, (Ge 42:23; Ex 12:37; Ps 81:5)2 Judah became his sanctuary, Israel his dominion. (Ex 15:17; Ex 25:8; Ps 78:68)3 The sea looked and fled; Jordan turned back. (Jos 3:13; Ps 77:16)4 The mountains skipped like rams, the hills like lambs. (Ex 19:18; Ps 18:7; Ps 29:6)5 What ails you, O sea, that you flee? O Jordan, that you turn back? (Hab 3:8)6 O mountains, that you skip like rams? O hills, like lambs?7 Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob, (Ps 96:9)8 who turns the rock into a pool of water, the flint into a spring of water. (Nu 20:11; De 8:15; Ps 78:15; Ps 107:35)
