Psalm 114Amplified Bible (AMP)
God’s Rescue of Israel from Egypt.
114 When Israel came out of Egypt,
The house of Jacob from a people of strange language,
Judah became His sanctuary,
And Israel His dominion.
The [Red] Sea looked and fled;
The Jordan turned back.
The mountains leaped like rams,
The [little] hills, like lambs.
What ails you, O sea, that you flee?
O Jordan, that you turn back?
O mountains, that you leap like rams,
O [little] hills, like lambs?
Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord,
At the presence of the God of Jacob (Israel),
Who turned the rock into a pool of water,
The flint into a fountain of water.
Psalm 114New International Version (NIV)
1 When Israel came out of Egypt,
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 leaped like rams,
the hills like lambs.
5 Why was it, sea, that you fled?
Why, Jordan, did you turn back?
6 Why, mountains, did you leap like rams,
you hills, like lambs?
7 Tremble, 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.
