Psalms 114
The Lord Works Wonders
1 # Ex 12.51. God brought his people
out of Egypt, that land
with a strange language.
2He made Judah his holy place
and ruled over Israel.
3 # Ex 14.21; Js 3.16,17. When the sea looked at God,
it ran away,
and the Jordan River
flowed upstream.
4The mountains and the hills
skipped around like goats.
5Ask the sea why it ran away
or ask the Jordan
why it flowed upstream.
6Ask the mountains and the hills
why they skipped like goats!
7Earth, you will tremble,
when the Lord God of Jacob
comes near,
8 # Ex 17.1-7; Nu 20.2-13. because he turns solid rock
into flowing streams
and pools of water.
