Psalm 114

God’s Wonders at the Exodus

[a]When Israel went out from Egypt,
    the house of Jacob from a people of strange language,(A)
Judah became God’s[b] sanctuary,
    Israel his dominion.(B)

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

Why is it, O sea, that you flee?
    O Jordan, that you turn back?
O mountains, that you skip like rams?
    O hills, like lambs?

Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord,
    at the presence of the God of Jacob,(E)
who turns the rock into a pool of water,
    the flint into a spring of water.(F)
