1When Israel came out of Egypt —
the house of Jacob from a people
who spoke a foreign language114:1 Ex 13:3; Ps 81:5 —
2Judah became his sanctuary,
Israel, his dominion.114:2 Ex 15:17; Ps 78:68–69

3The sea looked and fled;114:3 Ex 14:21; Ps 77:16
the Jordan turned back.114:3 Jos 3:13–16
4The mountains skipped like rams,
the hills, like lambs.114:4 Ex 19:18; Ps 29:6
5Why was it, sea, that you fled?
Jordan, that you turned back?114:5 Hab 3:8
6Mountains, that you skipped like rams?
Hills, like lambs?114:6 Hab 3:10

7Tremble, earth, at the presence of the Lord,
at the presence of the God of Jacob,114:7 Ps 96:9

the flint into a spring.114:8 Ex 17:6; Nm 20:11; Dt 8:15
