Psalm 114
New Living TranslationHolman Christian Standard Bible
1When the Israelites escaped from Egypt— when the family of Jacob left that foreign land—1When Israel came out of Egypt-- the house of Jacob from a people who spoke a foreign language--
2the land of Judah became God’s sanctuary, and Israel became his kingdom.2Judah became His sanctuary, Israel, His dominion.
3The Red Sea saw them coming and hurried out of their way! The water of the Jordan River turned away.3The sea looked and fled; the Jordan turned back.
4The mountains skipped like rams, the hills like lambs!4The mountains skipped like rams, the hills, like lambs.
5What’s wrong, Red Sea, that made you hurry out of their way? What happened, Jordan River, that you turned away?5Why was it, sea, that you fled? Jordan, that you turned back?
6Why, mountains, did you skip like rams? Why, hills, like lambs?6Mountains, that you skipped like rams? Hills, like lambs?
7Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob.7Tremble, earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob,
8He turned the rock into a pool of water; yes, a spring of water flowed from solid rock.8who turned the rock into a pool of water, the flint into a spring of water.
