Psalm 114

1 Alleluia!

When Israel came forth from Egypt,

 the house of Jacob from a foreign people,

 2 Judah became his temple,

 Israel became his domain.

3 The sea beheld them and fled;

 the Jordan turned back on its course.

 4 The mountains leapt like rams,

 and the hills like yearling sheep.

5 Why was it, sea, that you fled;

 that you turned back, Jordan, on your course?

 6 O mountains, that you leapt like rams;

 O hills, like yearling sheep?

7 Tremble, O earth, before the Lord,

 in the presence of the God of Jacob,

 8 who turns the rock into a pool,

 and flint into a spring of water.
