Psalm 114


Tremble at the Presence of the Lord



1 When Israel went out from Egypt, 

      the house of Jacob from a people of strange language, 

      2 Judah became his sanctuary, 

      Israel his dominion. 


      3 The sea looked and fled; 

      Jordan turned back. 

      4 The mountains skipped like rams, 

      the hills like lambs. 


      5 What ails you, O sea, that you flee? 

      O Jordan, that you turn back? 

      6 O mountains, that you skip like rams? 

      O hills, like lambs? 


      7 Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, 

      at the presence of the God of Jacob, 

      8 who turns the rock into a pool of water, 

      the flint into a spring of water.
