Psalms 114- the exile from Egypt

One of the most beautiful passages in the Haggadah is taken from the Old Testament. Every year we sit around the table, singing the songs of Passover, one of them is this-

” בְּצֵאת יִשְׂרָאֵל, מִמִּצְרָיִם; בֵּית יַעֲקֹב, מֵעַם לֹעֵז.
הָיְתָה יְהוּדָה לְקָדְשׁוֹ; יִשְׂרָאֵל, מַמְשְׁלוֹתָיו.
הַיָּם רָאָה, וַיָּנֹס; הַיַּרְדֵּן, יִסֹּב לְאָחוֹר.
הֶהָרִים, רָקְדוּ כְאֵילִים; גְּבָעוֹת, כִּבְנֵי-צֹאן.
מַה-לְּךָ הַיָּם, כִּי תָנוּס; הַיַּרְדֵּן, תִּסֹּב לְאָחוֹר.
הֶהָרִים, תִּרְקְדוּ כְאֵילִים; גְּבָעוֹת, כִּבְנֵי-צֹאן.”

“When Israel went forth from Egypt, The house of Jacob from a people of strange language, Judah became His sanctuary, Israel, His dominion. The sea looked and fled; The Jordan turned back. The mountains skipped like rams, The hills, like lambs. What ails you, O sea, that you flee? O Jordan, that you turn back? O mountains, that you skip like rams? O hills, like lambs?”(Psalms 114:1-6)

Why won’t you listen to this song?

When the Israelites went out of Egypt, from slavery to freedom, from the hands of Pharaoh of G-d’s redemption, all the nature respected the exile by dancing, by running away from the hands of G-d. One of the reasons that Passover is the most important feast in the Jewish tradition is that on that day all the world saw how mighty is The Lord, how much strength and influence he had.

All you have to do, dear friends, is enjoy this day by singing and praising G-d, who delivers us the idea of freedom. If the mountains and the hills could have done it, we all can do it-yes we can!


Remember that G-d will protect us, his believers, when we will live in peace and not die in wars, if we carry in our hearts and our souls the idea of freedom.

Have a nice weekend, Eli
