Psalm 114

Tremble at the Presence of the Lord

1 When p Israel went out from Egypt,
the house of Jacob from q a people of strange language,
2 Judah became his r sanctuary,
Israel his dominion.

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

5 What v 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 w Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord,
at the presence of the God of Jacob,
8 who turns x the rock into y a pool of water,
z the flint into a spring of water.
