114 1 How the Israelites were delivered forth of Egypt, and of the wonderful miracles that God wrought at that time. Which put us in remembrance of God’s great mercy toward his Church, who when the course of nature faileth, preserveth his miraculously.
1 When Israel went out of Egypt, and the house of Jacob from the [a]barbarous people,
2 Judah was his [b]sanctification, and Israel his dominion.
3 The sea saw it, and fled: Jordan was turned back.
4 The [c]mountains leaped like rams, and the hills as lambs!
5 What ailed thee, O sea, that thou fleddest? O Jordan, why wast thou turned back?
6 Ye mountains why leaped ye like rams, and ye hills as lambs?
7 The [d]earth trembled at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob,
8 Which [e]turneth the rock into waterpools, and the flint into a fountain of water.
Psalm 114:1That is, from them that were of a strange language.
Psalm 114:2The whole people were witnesses of his holy majesty, in adopting them, and of his mighty power in delivering them.
Psalm 114:4Seeing that these dead creatures felt God’s power, and after a sort saw it, much more his people ought to consider it, and glorify him for the same.
Psalm 114:7Ought then his people to be insensible when they see his power and majesty?
