Psalm 114

When Israel came out of Egypt,(A)
    Jacob from a people of foreign tongue,
Judah(B) became God’s sanctuary,(C)
    Israel his dominion.

The sea looked and fled,(D)
    the Jordan turned back;(E)
the mountains leaped(F) like rams,
    the hills like lambs.

Why was it, sea, that you fled?(G)
    Why, Jordan, did you turn back?
Why, mountains, did you leap like rams,
    you hills, like lambs?

Tremble, earth,(H) at the presence of the Lord,
    at the presence of the God of Jacob,
who turned the rock into a pool,
    the hard rock into springs of water.(I)

19 When Pharaoh’s horses, chariots and horsemen[a] went into the sea,(A) the Lord brought the waters of the sea back over them, but the Israelites walked through the sea on dry ground.(B) 20 Then Miriam(C) the prophet,(D) Aaron’s sister, took a timbrel in her hand, and all the women followed her, with timbrels(E) and dancing.(F) 21 Miriam sang(G) to them:

“Sing to the Lord,
    for he is highly exalted.
Both horse and driver(H)
    he has hurled into the sea.”(I)

  1. Exodus 15:19 Or charioteers

And when you pray, do not keep on babbling(A) like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.(B) Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need(C) before you ask him.

“This, then, is how you should pray:

“‘Our Father(D) in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom(E) come,
your will be done,(F)
    on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.(G)
12 And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.(H)
13 And lead us not into temptation,[a](I)
    but deliver us from the evil one.[b](J)

14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.(K) 15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.(L)
