Day 23 — Psalm 114

Hymn for the Passover


When Israel came out of Egypt,
the House of Jacob from a foreign nation,
Judah became His sanctuary
and Israel His domain.

The sea fled at the sight,
the Jordan stopped flowing,
the mountains skipped like rams,
and like lambs, the hills.

Sea, what makes you run away?
Jordan, why stop flowing?
Why skip like rams, you mountains,
why like lambs, you hills?

Quake, earth, at the coming of your Master,
at the coming of the God of Jacob,
who turns rock into pool,
flint into fountain.

Next… Psalm 115
