The Psalms

Psalm 114

The miracles wrought by God when he brought his people out of Egypt are a just ground for fearing him, 1-8.

1 When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of a foreign language,

2 Judah was his sanctuary and Israel his dominion.

3 The sea saw it and fled. The Jordan was driven back.

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

5 What ailed you, O sea, that you fled; O Jordan, that you were driven back;

6 O mountains, that you skipped like rams; O little hills, like lambs?

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

8 Who turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.
