Psalm 114. Enjoy.
1 When the Israelites escaped from Egypt—
when the family of Jacob left that foreign land—
2 the land of Judah became God’s sanctuary,
and Israel became his kingdom.
3 The Red Sea saw them coming and hurried out of their way!
The water of the Jordan River turned away.
4 The mountains skipped like rams,
the hills like lambs!
5 What’s wrong, Red Sea, that made you hurry out of their way?
What happened, Jordan River, that you turned away?
6 Why, mountains, did you skip like rams?
Why, hills, like lambs?
7 Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord,
at the presence of the God of Jacob.
8 He turned the rock into a pool of water;
yes, a spring of water flowed from solid rock.
I would have loved to witness the parting of the Red Sea. The images that I think of…the sounds all. The men, women, and children…feeling the rush of the enemy behind me. Can you even imagine?
Reading the stories makes me want to be a fly on the wall. I’m pretty sure I would have been stoned to death if I lived in that time LOL.
