|בְּצֵ֣את יִ֭שְׂרָאֵל מִמִּצְרָ֑יִם |
בֵּ֥ית יַ֝עֲקֹ֗ב מֵעַ֥ם לֹעֵֽז
|1||When Israel came out from Egypt, |
the house of Jacob from an exotic people,
|הָיְתָ֣ה יְהוּדָ֣ה לְקָדְשׁ֑וֹ |
|2||Judah became his sanctuary, |
Israel his parables.
|הַיָּ֣ם רָ֭אָה וַיָּנֹ֑ס |
הַ֝יַּרְדֵּ֗ן יִסֹּ֥ב לְאָחֽוֹר
|3||The sea saw and withdrew. |
The Jordan was surrounded from behind.
|הֶֽ֭הָרִים רָקְד֣וּ כְאֵילִ֑ים |
|4||g||The hills skipped like rams, |
hillocks like lambkin.
|מַה־לְּךָ֣ הַ֭יָּם כִּ֣י תָנ֑וּס |
הַ֝יַּרְדֵּ֗ן תִּסֹּ֥ב לְאָחֽוֹר
|5||What is it to you, sea that you withdrew, |
O Jordan, that you were surrounded from behind?
|הֶֽ֭הָרִים תִּרְקְד֣וּ כְאֵילִ֑ים |
|6||g||hills that you skipped like rams, |
hillocks like lambkin?
|מִלִּפְנֵ֣י אָ֭דוֹן ח֣וּלִי אָ֑רֶץ |
מִ֝לִּפְנֵ֗י אֱל֣וֹהַּ יַעֲקֹֽב
|7||From the presence of the Lord let earth be brought to birth, |
from the presence of the God of Jacob,
|הַהֹפְכִ֣י הַצּ֣וּר אֲגַם־מָ֑יִם |
|8||who changes the rock into a pool of waters, |
the flint into his spring of waters.
