Psalm 114
New Living TranslationKing James Bible
1When the Israelites escaped from Egypt— when the family of Jacob left that foreign land—1When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language;

4The mountains skipped like rams, the hills like lambs!4The mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like lambs.

6Why, mountains, did you skip like rams? Why, hills, like lambs?6Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and ye little hills, like lambs?
7Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob.7Tremble, thou 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.8Which turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.
