Psalm 114

When Israel left Egypt,
    when Jacob’s family left people who spoke a foreign language,
Judah became his holy place and Israel became his kingdom.
    The Red Sea looked at this and ran away.
        The Jordan River turned back.
            The mountains jumped like rams.
            The hills jumped like lambs.
        Red Sea, why did you run away?
        Jordan River, what made you turn back?
            Mountains, what made you jump like rams?
            Hills, what made you jump like lambs?
Earth, tremble in the presence of the Lord,
    in the presence of the Elohim of Jacob.
        He turns a rock into a pool filled with water
            and turns flint into a spring flowing with water.
