Psalm 114

Think of how glorious this is! The earth -- which has been pining for the redemption of the sons of man-- saw the earthly redeemed Israel and was in awe! The people carried God's glory! Consider how much the church, an entirely new creation -- redeemed not from an earthly oppressor but from the devil, sin, and sickness itself-- must portray God's glory.

Psalm 114

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

King James Version (KJV)
