Psalm 114

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

2 Judah became his sanctuary, Israel, his dominion.

3 The sea saw it and fled; The Jordan turned back.

4 The mountains skipped about like rams, The hills, like lambs.

5 What made you flee, O sea? Why, O Jordan, did you turn back?

6 Why did you skip about like rams, O mountains, Like lambs, O hills?

7 Tremble, O earth, because of the Lord, Because of the God of Jacob,

8 Who turns the rock into a reedy pool of water, The flinty rock into springs of water.
