Recall the Passover events (Ps 114:1-114:2)

“When Israel went forth from Egypt,

The house of Jacob,

From a people of strange language,

Judah became God’s sanctuary.

Israel became his dominion.”

Psalm 114 begins with a long sentence of remembrance since there is no title to this short psalm. Israel left Egypt. The house of Jacob left the land that had a strange language. We must remember that any language not your own is always strange. Judah was God’s sanctuary for them. Israel was his dominion. Once again the favorite spot is where the tribe of Judah settled.
