The Power of God in His Deliverance of Israel
(cf. Ex. 14:1–31)
1When Israel went out of Egypt,
The house of Jacob from a people 114:1 who spoke unintelligiblyof strange language,
2Judah became His sanctuary,
And Israel His dominion.
3The sea saw it and fled;
Jordan turned back.
4The mountains skipped like rams,
The little hills like lambs.
5What ails you, O sea, that you fled?
O Jordan, that you turned back?
6O mountains, that you skipped like rams?
O little hills, like lambs?
7Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord,
At the presence of the God of Jacob,
8Who turned the rock into a pool of water,
The flint into a fountain of waters.
