Psalms 114

Chapter 114

114:1 When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of a strange language;

(a) Or, barbarous.
114:2 Judah was his b sanctuary, [and] Israel his dominion.
(b) The whole people were witnesses to his holy majesty in adopting them, and of his mighty power in delivering them.
114:4 The c mountains skipped like rams, [and] the little hills like lambs.
(c) Seeing that these dead creatures felt Gods power and after a sort saw it, much more his people ought to consider it, and glorify him for the same.
114:7 Tremble, thou d earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;
(d) Ought then his people to be insensible when they see his power and majesty?
114:8 Which e turned the rock [into] a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.

(e) That is, miraculously caused water to come out of the rock in great abundance, ( Exodus 17:6 ).
