Psalms Chapter 114 – An exhortation to fear God.

1 When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language;


2 Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.


3 The sea saw it, and fled; Jordan was driven back.


4 The mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like lambs.


5 What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou Jordan, that thou wast driven back?


6 Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and ye little hills, like lambs?


7 Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;


8 Which turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.
