Psalm 114

    Psalm 114

    The Lord governs the sea and the land for the blessing of His people.

    1 When Israel went out of aEgypt, 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 afled: 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 awaters.
