Amplified Bible

Psalm 114

God’s Rescue of Israel from Egypt.

1When Israel came out of Egypt,
The house of Jacob from a people of strange language,

Judah became His sanctuary,
And Israel His dominion.


The [Red] Sea [a]looked and fled;
The Jordan turned back.

The mountains leaped like rams,
The [little] hills, like lambs.

What ails you, O sea, that you flee?
O Jordan, that you turn back?

O mountains, that you leap like rams,
O [little] hills, like lambs?


Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord,
At the presence of the God of Jacob (Israel),

Who turned the rock into a pool of water,
The flint into a fountain of water.

  1. Psalm 114:3 Some of the ancient rabbis said that the sea saw God’s right hand placed on Moses. Others said that it saw God’s name (YHWH) engraved on Moses’ staff.

King James Version

Psalm 114

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

Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.

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

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

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

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

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

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