Psalm 114 Young's Literal Translation (YLT)

114 In the going out of Israel from Egypt, The house of Jacob from a strange people,

Judah became His sanctuary, Israel his dominion.

The sea hath seen, and fleeth, The Jordan turneth backward.

The mountains have skipped as rams, Heights as sons of a flock.

What -- to thee, O sea, that thou fleest? O Jordan, thou turnest back!

O mountains, ye skip as rams! O heights, as sons of a flock!

From before the Lord be afraid, O earth, From before the God of Jacob,

He is turning the rock to a pool of waters, The flint to a fountain of waters!

Psalm 114 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 114

When Israel came out of Egypt,
    Jacob from a people of foreign tongue,
Judah became God’s sanctuary,
    Israel his dominion.

The sea looked and fled,
    the Jordan turned back;
the mountains leaped like rams,
    the hills like lambs.

Why was it, sea, that you fled?
    Why, Jordan, did you turn back?
Why, mountains, did you leap like rams,
    you hills, like lambs?

Tremble, earth, at the presence of the Lord,
    at the presence of the God of Jacob,
who turned the rock into a pool,
    the hard rock into springs of water.
