New International Version (1984 Edition)

Psalms 114

1 When Israel came out of Egypt,
     the house of Jacob from a people of foreign tongue,
2 Judah became God's sanctuary,
     Israel his dominion.
3 The sea looked and fled,
     the Jordan turned back;
4 the mountains skipped like rams,
     the hills like lambs.
5 Why was it, O sea, that you fled,
     O Jordan, that you turned back,
6 you mountains, that you skipped like rams,
     you hills, like lambs?
7 Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord,
     at the presence of the God of Jacob,
8 who turned the rock into a pool, the hard rock into springs of water.
