An exhortation, by the example of the dumb creatures, to fear God in his Church.
Psalms 114:1 When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language, Psalms 114:2 Judah was his sanctuary, Israel his dominion. Psalms 114:3 The sea saw it and fled, the Jordan turned back; Psalms 114:4 The mountains skipped like rams, the hills like lambs. Psalms 114:5 What ailed thee, thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou Jordan, that thou turnedst back? Psalms 114:6 Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams? ye hills, like lambs? Psalms 114:7 Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the +God of Jacob, Psalms 114:8 Who turned the rock into a pool of water, the flint into a fountain of waters.
