בצאת ישראל ממצרים

Edit SongDiscussionHistoryPrint

Betzeit yisrael mimitzrayim,
beit Ya'akov meam loez.
Haytah yehudah lekodsho
Yisrael mamshelotav.

Hayam ra'ah vayanos,
hayarden yisov leachor.
Heharim rakedu cheilim,
gevaot kivnei tzon.

Mah lecha hayam ki tanus,
hayarden tisov leachor.
Heharim tirkedu cheilim,
gevaot kivnei tzon.

Milifnei adon chuli aretz,
Mlifnei eloah ya'akov.
Hahofechi hatzur agam mayim,
Chalamish lemayeno mayim.
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.

מִלִּפְנֵי אָדוֹן חוּלִי אָרֶץ
מִלִּפְנֵי אֱלוֹהַּ יַעֲקֹב.
הַהֹפְכִי הַצּוּר אֲגַם מָיִם
חַלָּמִישׁ לְמַעְיְנוֹ מָיִם.


When Israel came forth out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language;​
Judah​ became His sanctuary​, Israel His dominion.​
The sea saw it, and fled; the Jordan turned backward.​
The mountains​​ skipped like rams, the hills like young sheep.
What is has come upon you, the sea, that you flee? The Jordan, that you turn backward?​
The mountains​​, that you skip like rams; the hills, like young sheep?
Tremb​le, earth, at the presence of the Master, at the presence of the God of Jacob;
Who turned the rock into a pool of water, the flint into a fountain of waters.

Psalm 114
Sung during Hallel and at the seder
