Psalm 114

God’s Wonders at the Exodus

1When Israel went out from Egypt,
    the house of Jacob from a people of strange language,
2Judah became God’s[a] sanctuary,
    Israel his dominion.

3The sea looked and fled;
    Jordan turned back.
4The mountains skipped like rams,
    the hills like lambs.

5Why is it, O sea, that you flee?
    O Jordan, that you turn back?
6O mountains, that you skip like rams?
    O hills, like lambs?

7Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord,
    at the presence of the God of Jacob,
8who turns the rock into a pool of water,
    the flint into a spring of water.
