Verse 1
When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of a strange language;

(a) Or, barbarous.

Verse 2
Judah was his b sanctuary, [and] Israel his dominion.

(b) The whole people were witnesses to his holy majesty in adopting them, and of his mighty power in delivering them.

Verse 4
The c mountains skipped like rams, [and] the little hills like lambs.

(c) Seeing that these dead creatures felt God's power and after a sort saw it, much more his people ought to consider it, and glorify him for the same.

Verse 7
Tremble, thou d earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;

(d) Ought then his people to be insensible when they see his power and majesty?

Verse 8
Which e turned the rock [into] a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.

(e) That is, miraculously caused water to come out of the rock in great abundance, (Exodus 17:6).
