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

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

114:3 fled. The inspired writer confirms in this verse the miracle at the Red Sea and (forty years later) at Jordan.

114:4 skipped like rams. Although there is no specific mention of earthquakes in Joshua or Judges, they may well have been associated providentially with the damming of the Jordan River, the collapse of Jericho’s walls, or other great miracles recorded in these books.

114:8 fountain of waters. The Scriptures repeatedly confirm God’s miraculous provision of water for His people during their forty years in the wilderness (Deuteronomy 8:15; I Corinthians 10:4; Psalm 78:16).
