The Message

Psalm 114

11-8 After Israel left Egypt,
    the clan of Jacob left those barbarians behind;
Judah became holy land for him,
    Israel the place of holy rule.
Sea took one look and ran the other way;
    River Jordan turned around and ran off.
The mountains turned playful and skipped like rams,
    the hills frolicked like spring lambs.
What’s wrong with you, Sea, that you ran away?
    and you, River Jordan, that you turned and ran off?
And mountains, why did you skip like rams?
    and you, hills, frolic like spring lambs?
Tremble, Earth! You’re in the Lord’s presence!
    in the presence of Jacob’s God.
He turned the rock into a pool of cool water,
    turned flint into fresh spring water.

诗篇 114

逾越节之歌

1以色列人离开埃及,
雅各家从异国出来时,
犹大成为上帝的圣所,
以色列成为祂的国度。
大海看见他们就奔逃,
约旦河也倒流。
大山如公羊一般跳跃,
小山像羊羔一样蹦跳。
大海啊,你为何奔逃?
约旦河啊,你为何倒流?
大山啊,你为何如公羊一般跳跃?
小山啊,你为何像羊羔一样蹦跳?
大地啊,你要在主面前,
在雅各的上帝面前战抖,
因为祂使磐石变成水池,
使岩石涌出泉水。
