Psalm 114

8,6,8,6

1When Isr’el out of Egypt went,

and did his dwelling change,

When Jacob’s house went out from those

that were of language strange,

2He Judah did his sanctuary,

his kingdom Isr’el make:

3The sea it saw, and quickly fled,

Jordan was driven back.

4Like rams the mountains, and like lambs

the hills skipp’d to and fro.

5O sea, why fledd’st thou? Jordan, back

why wast thou driven so?

6Ye mountains great, wherefore was it

that ye did skip like rams?

And wherefore was it, little hills,

that ye did leap like lambs?

7O at the presence of the Lord,

earth, tremble thou for fear,

While as the presence of the God

of Jacob doth appear:

8Who from the hard and stony rock

did standing water bring;

And by his pow’r did turn the flint

into a water-spring.
