The fifth book of Psalms, song 114, New English Translation and King James Version

Psalm 114

New English Translation

   1 When Israel left Egypt, when the family of Jacob left a foreign nation behind,
   2 Judah became his sanctuary, Israel his kingdom.
   3 The sea looked and fled; the Jordan River turned back.
   4 The mountains skipped like rams, the hills like lambs.
   5 Why do you flee, O sea? Why do you turn back, O Jordan River?
   6 Why do you skip like rams, O mountains, like lambs, O hills?
   7 Tremble, O earth, before the LORD - before the God of Jacob,
   8 who turned a rock into a pool of water, a hard rock into springs of water!

King James Version

   1 When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language;
   2 Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.
   3 The sea saw it, and fled: Jordan was driven back.
   4 The mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like lambs.
   5 What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou Jordan, that thou wast driven back?
   6 Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and ye little hills, like lambs?
   7 Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;
   8 Which turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.
