This seems a good example of a figurative illustration of God’s power….though if you look hard uou can see the connections to historical events.
Tremble at the Presence of the Lord
Psa 114:1 When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language;
Psa 114:2 Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.
Psa 114:3 The sea saw it, and fled: Jordan was driven back.
Psa 114:4 The mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like lambs.
Psa 114:5 What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou Jordan, that thou wast driven back?
Psa 114:6 Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and ye little hills, like lambs?
Psa 114:7 Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;
Psa 114:8 Which turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.
Psalms 114:8 Gill
Which turned the rock into a standing water,…. Both at Rephidim and at Kadesh; which being smitten, streams of water flowed out like rivers, as if the rock itself was changed into water; and which came a constant and continual supply for the Israelites, for it is said to follow them; see Exo 17:6.
The flint into a fountain of waters; referring to the same thing, the rocks were flinty ones. This was a type of Christ the Rock; who has an abiding fulness of grace in him; is the fountain of it, from whence it flows in great abundance for the supply of his people’s wants, while passing through this wilderness to Canaan’s land.
