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.

Psalm 114

Psalm 114

The people of Israel came out of Egypt.
    The people of Jacob left a land where a different language was spoken.
Then Judah became the holy place where God lived.
    Israel became the land he ruled over.

The Red Sea saw him and parted.
    The Jordan River stopped flowing.
The mountains leaped like rams.
    The hills skipped like lambs.

Red Sea, why did you part?
    Jordan River, why did you stop flowing?
Why did you mountains leap like rams?
    Why did you hills skip like lambs?

Earth, tremble with fear when the Lord comes.
    Tremble when the God of Jacob is near.
He turned the rock into a pool.
    He turned the hard rock into springs of water.
