114 1After Israel left Egypt, the clan of Jacob left those barbarians behind; 2Judah became holy land for him, Israel the place of holy rule. 3Sea took one look and ran the other way; River Jordan turned around and ran off. 4The mountains turned playful and skipped like rams, the hills frolicked like spring lambs. 5What’s wrong with you, Sea, that you ran away? and you, River Jordan, that you turned and ran off? 6And mountains, why did you skip like rams? and you, hills, frolic like spring lambs? 7Tremble, Earth! You’re in the Lord’s presence! in the presence of Jacob’s God. 8He turned the rock into a pool of cool water, turned flint into fresh spring water.
