Chapter 13

 

ויהי וַהֲוָה כַּד פְּטַר פַּרְעה יַת עַמָּא וְלָא דַבְּרִינוּן יְיָ אוֹרַח אֲרַע פְּלִישְׁתָּאֵי אֲרוּם קָרֵיב הוּא אֲרוּם אֲמַר יְיָ דִלְמָא יִתְהֲווֹן עַמָּא בְּמֵיחְמֵיהוֹן אֲחוּהוֹן דְּמִיתַן בִּקְרָבָא מָאתָן אַלְפִין גּוּבְרִין בְּנֵי חֵילָא מִשִּׁבְטָא דְאֶפְרַיִם מְאַחֲדִין בִּתְרִיסִין וְרוּמְחִין וּמָאנֵי זַיְינִין וְנַחֲתוּ לְגַת לְמֵיבוּז גֵּיתֵי פְּלִישְׁתָּאֵי וּבְגִין דַּעֲבָרוּ עַל גְּזֵרַת מֵימְרָא דַיְיָ וּנְפָקוּ מִמִּצְרַיִם תְּלָתִין שְׁנִין קֳדָם קִיצָא אִיתְמַסְרוּ בִּידָא דִפְּלִישְׁתָּאֵי וּקְטָלוּנוּן הִינוּן הֲווֹ גַרְמַיָא יְבֵישַׁיָא דְאָחֵי יַתְהוֹן מֵימְרָא דַיְיָ עַל יְדָא דִיְחֶזְקֵאל נְבִיָא בְּבִקְעַת דּוּרָא וְאִין יֶחְמוּן כְּדֵין יִדְחֲלוּן וִיתוּבוּן לְמִצְרָיִם

AND it was when Pharaoh had released the people, that Yahuah did not conduct them by the way of the land of the Phelishtaee though that was the near one; for Yahuah said, Lest the people be frightened in seeing their brethren who were killed in war, two hundred thousand men of strength of the tribe of Ephraim, who took shields, and lances, and weapons of war, and went down to Gath to carry off the flocks of the Phelishtaee; and because they transgressed against the statute of the Word of Yahuah, and went forth from Mizraim three years before the (appointed) end of their servitude, they were delivered into the hand of the Phelishtaee, who slew them. These are the dry bones which the Word of Yahuah restored to life by the ministry (hand) of Yechezekel the prophet, in the vale of Dura; but which, if they (now) saw them, they would be afraid, and return into Mizraim.

 

וְאַחֲזַר יְיָ יַת עַמָּא אוֹרַח מַדְבְּרָא דְיַמָא דְסוּף וְכָל חַד עִם חַמְשָׁא טַפְלִין סְלִיקוּ בְּנֵי יִשְרָאֵל מֵאַרְעָא דְמִצְרָיִם

But Yahuah led the people round by the way of the desert of the sea of Suph; and every one of the sons of Israel, with five children, went up from the land of Mizraim.

 

וְאַסֵּק משֶׁה יַת אֲרוֹנָא דְגַרְמֵי יוֹסֵף בְּגַוֵּיהּ מִן נִילוֹס וַהֲוָה מַדְבַּר עִמֵּיהּ אֲרֵי אוֹמָאָה אוֹמֵי יַת בְּנֵי יִשְרָאֵל לְמֵימַר מִדְכַּר יַדְכַּר יְיָ יַתְכוֹן וְתִסְקוּן יַת גַּרְמַי מִיכָּא עִמְכוֹן

And Mosheh carried up the ark in which were the bones of Joseph, from out of the Nilos, and took them with him; because, adjuring, he adjured the sons of Israel, saving, Yahuah will surely remember you, and you shall carry up my bones with you.

 

וּנְטָלוּ מִסֻּכּוֹת אָתַר דְּאִתְחַפִּיּוּ בַּעֲנָנֵי יְקָרָא וּשְׁרוֹ בְאֵיתָם דְּבִסְטַר מַדְבְּרָא

And they journeyed from Succoth, the place where they had been covered with the clouds of glory, and sojourned in Ethan, which is on the side of the desert.

 

וְאֵיקַר שְׁכִינְתָּא דַיְיָ מִידְבַּר קֳדָמֵיהוֹן בִּימָמָא בְּעַמּוּדָא דַעֲנָנָא לְדַבָּרוּתְהוֹן בְּאָרְחָא וּבְלֵילְיָא הָדַר עַמּוּדָא דַעֲנָנָא מִבַּתְרֵיהוֹן לְמַחְשַׁךְ לִדְרַדְפִין מִן בַּתְרֵיהוֹן וְעַמּוּדָא דְאֵישָׁתָא לְאַנְהָרָא קֳדָמֵיהוֹן לְמֵיזַל בִּימָמָא וּבְלֵילְיָא

And the glory of the Shekinah of Yahuah went before them by day in the column of the Cloud to lead them in the way, and at night the column of the Cloud removed behind them to darken on their pursuers behind them ; but to be a column of fire to enlighten them before, that they might go forward by day and by night.

 

לָא עֲדֵי עֲמוּדָא דַעֲנָנָא בִּימָמָא וְעַמוּדָא דְאֵישָׁתָא בְלֵילְיָא לְמַדְבְּרָא קֳדָם עַמָא

The column of the Cloud departed not by day, nor the column of fire by night, in leading on before the people.

 

 

Chapter 14י״ד

 

 

וּמַלֵיל יְיָ עִם משֶׁה לְמֵימָר

And Yahuah spake to Mosheh, saying,

 

מַלֵיל עִם בְּנֵי יִשְרָאֵל וִיתוּבוּן לַאֲחוֹרֵיהוֹן וְיִשְׁרוּן קֳדָם פּוּמֵי חִירָתָא מַרְבִּיעָתָא דְאִתְבְּרִיוּ בְּגַוְונֵי בְּנֵי נְשָׁא דְכַר וְנוּקְבָא וְעַיְינִין פְּתִיחַן לְהוֹן הוּא אַתְרָא דְטָנֵיס דְּבֵינֵי מִגְדוֹל וּבֵינֵי יַמָּא קֳדָם טַעֲוַת צְפוֹן דְּמִשְׁתַּיֵּיר מִכָּל טַעֲוָון דְּמִצְרָיִם בְּגִין דְּיֵמְרוּן מִצְרָאֵי בָּחִיר הוּא בַּעַל צְפוֹן מִכָּל טַעֲוָותָא דְאִשְׁתַּיֵּיר וְלָא לָקָא דְיֵיתוּן לְמִסְגוֹד לֵיהּ וְיִשְׁכְּחוּן יַתְכוֹן דְּאַתּוּן שְׁרָן לְקִבְלֵיהּ עַל גֵּיף יַמָּא

Speak to the sons of Israel, that they return back, and encamp before the Mouths of Hiratha, as they lie, created after the manner (likeness) of the children of men, male and female, and their eyes open to them: it is the place of Tanes, which is between Migdol and the sea, before the idol Zephon (Typhon), that is left of all the idols of Mizraim. For the Mizraee will say, More excellent is Baal Zephon than all idols, because it is left, and not smitten; and therefore will they come to worship it, and will find that you are encamped nigh unto it, on the border of the sea.

 

וְיֵמַר פַּרְעה לְדָתָן וְלַאֲבִירָם בְּנֵי יִשְרָאֵל דְּמִשְׁתַּיְירוּן בְּמִצְרַיִם מְטַרְפִין הִינוּן עַמָּא בֵּית יִשְרָאֵל בְּאַרְעָא טָרַד עֲלֵיהוֹן טַעֲוַות צְפוֹן נַגְדוֹי דְּמַדְבְּרָא

And Pharaoh said to Dathan and Abiram, sons of Israel, who had remained in Mizraim, The people of the house of Israel are bewildered in the land: the idol Zephon hath shut them in close upon the desert.

 

וְאַתְקֵיף יַת יִצְרָא דְּלִבָּא דְּפַרְעה וְיִרְדוֹף בַּתְרֵיהוֹן וְאִתְיַקַר בְּפַרְעה וּבְכָל מִשְׁרְיָיתֵיהּ וְיִנְדְעוּן מִצְרָאֵי אֲרוּם אֲנָא הוּא יְיָ וַעֲבָדוּ הֵיכְדֵין

And I will strengthen the design of Pharaoh’s heart to pursue after them, and I will be glorified upon Pharaoh and upon his hosts, and the Mizraee shall know that I am Yahuah. And they did so.

 

וְתַנוּן אוּקְטְרַיָא דַּאֲזָלוּ עִם יִשְרָאֵל אֲרוּם עָרִיק עַמָא וְאִיתְהַפִּיךְ לִבָּא דְפַרְעה וְעַבְדוֹי לְבִישׁ עַל עַמָא וַאֲמָרוּ מַה דָא עָבַדְנָא אֲרוּם פָּטַרְנָא יַת יִשְרָאֵל מִפּוּלְחָנָא

And the officers who went with Israel announced that the people had fled. And the heart of Pharaoh and his servants was turned unto evil against the people; and they said, What is this that we have done? for we have released Israel from serving us.

 

וְטַקֵיס אִיהוּ נַפְשֵׁיהּ יַת אַרְתְּכֵיהּ וְיַת עַמֵּיהּ דְּבַר עִמֵּיהּ בְּמִילִין רַכִּיכִין

And he himself prepared his chariot, and his people led he with him by soft words.

 

וּדְבַר שִׁית מְאָה רְתִיכִין בְּחִירִין וְכָל רְתִיכֵי מִצְרָאֵי עַבְדוֹי דִדְחִילוּ מִפִּתְגָמָא דַיְיָ דְלָא מִיתוּ בְּמוֹתָנָא וְלָא בְּבַרְדָא וּמוֹלִיתָא תְּלִיתָתָא לְמִנְגַד וּלְמִרְדוֹף בִּבְהִילוּ אוֹסִיף עַל כָּל רְתִיכָא וּרְתִיכָא

And he took six hundred choice chariots, and all the chariots of the Mizraee his servants, who were afraid of the Word of Yahuah, lest they should be killed with pestilence, if not with hail: and a third mule, for drawing and following swiftly, he added to each chariot.

 

וּתְקֵיף יְיָ יָת יִצְרָא דְלִבָּא דְפַרְעה מַלְכָּא דְמִצְרַיִם וּרְדַף בָּתַר בְּנֵי יִשְרָאֵל וּבְנֵי יִשְרָאֵל נַפְקִין בִּידָא מְרַמְמָא מִתְגַּבְּרִין עַל מִצְרָאֵי

And Yahuah hardened the design of the heart of Pharaoh king of Mizraim, and he pursued after the sons of Israel. But the sons of Israel, going out with a high hand, were stronger than the Mizraee.

 

וּרְדָפוּ מִצְרָאֵי בַּתְרֵיהוֹן וְאַדְבִּיקוּ יַתְהוֹן כַּד שְׁרָן עַל יַמָא כְנִיסִין מַרְגְּלַיָין וְאַבְנִין טָבָן דִדְּבַר פִּישׁוֹן מְגִינוּנִיתָא דְעֵדֶן לְגוֹ גִיחוֹן וְגִיחוֹן דַבָּרִינוּן לְיַמָא דְסוּף וְיַמָא דְסוּף רָמָא יַתְהוֹן עַל גֵּיפֵיהּ כָּל סוּסְוַות אַרְתִּיכֵי פַּרְעה וּפָרָשׁוֹי וּמַשְׁרְיִיתֵיהּ עַל פּוּמֵי חִירָתָא דִּקְדָם טַעֲוַות צְפוֹן

And the Mizraee followed after them, and came upon them as they were encamped by the sea, gathering of pearls and goodly stones, which the river Pishon had carried from the garden of Eden into the Gihon, and the Gihon had carried into the sea of Suph, and the sea of Suph had cast upon its bank. But all the chariot horses of Pharaoh, and his horsemen, and his hosts (were coming) towards the Mouths of Hiratha, which are before the idol Zephon.

 

וּפַרְעה חָמָא טַעֲוַות צְפוֹן מִשְׁתְּזֵיב וּקְרֵיב קֳדָמוֹי קָרְבָּנִין וּזְקָפוּ בְּנֵי יִשְרָאֵל יַת עֵינֵיהוֹן וְהָא מִצְרָאֵי נַטְלִין בַּתְרֵיהוֹן וּדְחִילוּ לַחֲדָא וְצַלוּ בְנֵי יִשְרָאֵל קֳדָם יְיָ

And Pharaoh saw the idol Zephon (still) preserved, and offered oblations before it. And the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, beheld, the Mizraee were pursuing them; and they were sorely afraid, and the children of Israel prayed before Yahuah.

 

וַאֲמָרוּ רַשִׁיעֵי דָרָא לְמשֶׁה הֲמִן בִּגְלַל דְּלָא הֲוַת לָנָא בֵּית קְבוּרְתָּא בְּמִצְרָיִם דְּבַרְתָּנָא לִמְמַת בְּמַדְבְּרָא מַה דָּא עָבַדְתְּ לָנָא לְהַנְפָּקוּתָנָא מִמִּצְרָיִם

But the wicked generation said to Mosheh, Because there were no places of burial for us in Mizraim, hast thou led us forth to die in the wilderness ? What hast thou done to us, in bringing us out of Mizraim?

 

הֲלָא דֵין הוּא פִּתְגָמָא דְמַלֵילְנָא עִמָּךְ בְּמִצְרַיִם יִתְגְּלֵי יְיָ עֲלֵיכוֹן וִידוּן לְמֵימַר פְּסַק מִנָנָא וְנִפְלַח יַת מִצְרָאֵי אֲרוּם טַב לָנָא דְּנִפְלַח יַת מִצְרָאֵי מִדְנָמוּת בְּמַדְבְּרָא

Was as not this the word that we spake to thee in Mizraim, Let Yahuah manifest Himself over us and judge, saying, Desist from us, and we will serve the Mizraee? for it is better for us to serve the Mizraee than to perish in the desert.

 

אַרְבַּע כִּיתַּן אִתְעֲבִידוּ בְּנֵי יִשְרָאֵל עַל גֵּיף יַמָא דְסוּף חֲדָא אָמְרָה נֵיחוֹת לְיַמָא וַחֲדָא אָמְרָה נֵיתוּב לְמִצְרַיִם וַחֲדָא אָמְרָה נְסַדְרָה לְקוּבְלֵיהוֹן סִדְרֵי קְרָבָא וַחֲדָא אָמְרָה נְבַלְבְּלָא לְקוּבְלֵיהוֹן וּנְעַרְבִבָה יַתְהוֹן

Four parties were made (among) the sons of Israel on the shore of the Weedy Sea: one said, Let us go down into the sea; another said, Let us return into Mizraim; another said Let us set against them the line of battle; and another said Let us raise a cry against them, and confound them. Unto the company which said, Let us go down to the sea, spake Mosheh, Fear not, stand still, and see the salvation of Yahuah, which will be wrought for you today. To the company which said, Let us return into Mizraim Mosheh said, You shall not return; for, though you see the Mizraee today, you will see them no more for ever.

 

כִּתָּא דַהֲוָה אָמְרָה נְסַדְרָה לְקוּבְלֵיהוֹן סִדְרֵי קְרָבָא אָמַר לְהוֹן משֶׁה לָא תַגִּיחוּן דְּמִן קֳדָם יְיָ מִתְעֲבֵיד לְכוֹן נִצְחָנוּת קָרְבֵיכוֹן

To the company who said, Let us set against them the line of battle, said Mosheh, Contend not; for the victory shall be wrought among you from the presence of Yahuah. And to the company who said. Let us raise a cry against them, Mosheh said, Be silent; and give the glory, and praise, and exaltation to your God.

 

וַאֲמַר יְיָ לְמשֶׁה לָמָה אַנְתְּ קָאֵי וּמַצְלֵי קֳדָמַי הָא צְלוֹתְהוֹן דְּעַמִּי קַדְמַת לְדִידָךְ מַלֵּיל עִם בְּנֵי יִשְרָאֵל וְיִטְלוּן

And Yahuah said to Mosheh, Why standest thou praying before Me? Behold, the prayers of My people have come before thy own: speak to the sons of Israel, that they go forward;

 

וְאַנְתְּ אֲרוּם יַת חוּטְרָךְ וְאַרְכִין יַת יְדָךְ בֵּיהּ עַל יַמָא וּבַזְעֵיהּ וְעָלוּן בְּנֵי יִשְרָאֵל בְּגוֹ יַמָּא בְּיַבֶּשְׁתָּא

and thou, lift up thy rod, and stretch forth thy hand with it over the sea, and divide it: and the sons of Israel shall go through the midst of ,the sea upon the ground.

 

וַאֲנָא הָא אֲנָא מַתְקִיף יַת יִצְרָא דְלִבְּהוֹן דְּמִצְרָאֵי וְיַעֲלוּן בַּתְרֵיהוֹן וְאִתְיְקַר בְּפַרְעה וּבְכָל מַשִׁירְיָיתֵיהּ בִּרְתִיכוֹי וּבְפָרָשׁוֹי

For, behold, I will harden the design of the heart of the Mizraee, and they will go in after them; and I will be glorified upon Pharaoh and upon all his hosts, upon his chariots and his horsemen;

 

וְיֵדְעוּן מִצְרָאֵי אֲרוּם אֲנָא הוּא יְיָ בְּאִתְיַקָּרוּתִי בְּפַרְעה בִּרְתִיכוֹי וּבְפָרָשׁוֹי

that the Mizraee may know that I am Yahuah, when I am glorified upon Pharaoh, upon his chariots and horsemen.

 

וּנְטַל מַלְאָכָא דַיְיָ דְּמִדַּבַּר קֳדָם מַשְׁרְיָתָא דְיִשְרָאֵל וְאָתָא מִן בַּתְרֵיהוֹן וּנְטַל עַמּוּדָא דַעֲנָנָא מִן קֳדָמֵיהוֹן וּשְׁרָא מִן בַּתְרֵיהוֹן מִן בִּגְלַל מִצְרָאֵי דְפַתְקִין גִּירִין וְאַבְנִין לְיִשְרָאֵל וַהֲוָה עֲנָנָא מְקַבֵּל יַתְהוֹן

And the Angel of Yahuah who led the way before the hosts of Israel went and came behind them; and the column of the Cloud went from before and stood behind them: because the Mizraee threw darts and stones at the Israelites, but the Cloud intercepted them

 

וְאָעֵיל בֵּין מַשִׁירְיָתָא דְיִשְרָאֵל וּבֵין מַשִּׁירְיָתָא דְמִצְרָאֵי וַהֲוָה עֲנָנָא פַּלְגֵיהּ נְהוֹרָא וּפַלְגֵיהּ חֲשׁוֹכָא מִסִּטְרֵיהּ חָד מַחֲשָׁךְ עַל מִצְרָאֵי וּמִסִּטְרֵיהּ חָד אַנְהַר עַל יִשְרָאֵל כָּל לֵילְיָא וְלָא קְרָבָא מַשְׁרֵי כָּל קְבֵיל מַשְׁרֵי לִמְסַדְרָא סִדְרֵי קְרָבָא כָּל לֵילְיָא

and it came between the host of Israel and the host of the Mizraee; a cloud, one half of which was light and one half darkness. On the one side it darkened upon the Mizraee, and on the other side it shined upon Israel all night; and one host did not attack the other all the night.

 

וְאַרְכִין משֶׁה יַת יְדֵיהּ עַל יַמָא בְּחוּטְרָא רַבָּא וְיַקִירָא דְּאִיתְבְּרִי מִן שֵׁירוּיָא וּבֵיהּ חָקִיק וּמְפָרֵשׁ שְׁמָא רַבָּא וְיַקִּירָא וְעִישַרְתֵּי אַתְוָותָא דִי מְחָא יַת מִצְרָאֵי וּתְלַת אַבְהַת עַלְמָא וְשִׁית אִימְהָתָא וּתְרֵיסַר שִׁבְטוֹי דְיַעֲקב וּמִן יַד דְּבַר יְיָ יַת יַמָא בְּרוּחַ קִידוּמָא תַקִיף כָּל לֵילְיָא וְשַׁוִי יַת יַמָא נְגִיבָא וְאִתְבְּזָעוּ מַיָא לִתְרֵיסַר בְּזִיעַן כָּל קְבֵיל תְּרֵיסַר שִׁבְטוֹי דְיַעֲקב

And Mosheh stretched out his hand over the sea, with the great and glorious rod which was created at the beginning, and on which were engraven and set forth the Great and Glorious Name, and the ten signs which had smitten the Mizraee, and the three fathers of the world, and the six mothers, and the twelve tribes of Jakob: and straightway Yahuah brought a vehement east wind upon the sea all night, and made the sea dry; and divided the waters into twelve divisions according to the twelve tribes of Jacob.

 

וְעָלוּ בְנֵי יִשְרָאֵל בְּגוֹ יַמָא בְּיַבֶּשְׁתָּא וּמַיָא קַרְשְׁווּן הֵי כְשׁוּרִין דְּמִן תְּלַת מְאָה מִילִין מִיַּמִינְהוֹן וּמִשְמָאלְהוֹן

And the children of Israel went through the midst of the sea upon the ground, and the waters were congealed like a wall, three hundred miles on their right hand and on their left.

 

וּרְדָפוּ מִצְרָאֵי וְעָלוּ מִן בַּתְרֵיהוֹן כָּל סוּסָוַות פַּרְעה רְתִיכוֹי וּפְרָשׁוֹי לְגוֹי יַמָּא

And the Mizraee followed and went in after them, all the horses of Pharaoh, and his chariots and horsemen, into the midst of the sea.

 

וַהֲוָה בְּמַטְרַת צַפְרָא בְּעִידָנָא דְאַתְיַין חַיְילֵי מְרוֹמָא לְשַׁבָּחָא וְאוֹדִיק יְיָ בִּרְגוֹז עֲלוֹי מַשְׁרִיתְהוֹן דְּמִצְרָאֵי בְּעַמּוּדָא דְאֵישָׁתָא לְמִירְמֵי עֲלֵיהוֹן גּוּמְרִין דְּאֵישָׁא וּבְעַמּוּדָא דַעֲנָנָא לְמִרְמָא עֲלֵיהוֹן בַּרְדִין וְשָׁעֲמָם יַת מַשִּׁרְיַית מִצְרָאֵי

And it was that in the morning watch, at the time that the powers on high come to offer praise, Yahuah looked forth with anger upon the hosts of the Mizraee from the column of fire, to hurl upon them flakes of fire and hail, and from the column of cloud, and confounded the host of the Mizraee

 

וּנְסַר יַת גַּלְגַּלֵי רִידְוָותֵיהּ דְּפַרְעה וַהֲווֹ מְדַבְּרִין יַתְהוֹן בְּקַשְׁיוּ וַהֲווֹן מְהַלְכִין וְשַׁרְיָין מִן בַּתְרֵיהוֹן וַאֲמָרוּ מִצְרָאֵי אִלֵּין לְאִלֵּין נְעִירוֹק מִן עַמָּא בֵּית יִשְרָאֵל אֲרוּם מֵימְרָא דַיְיָ הוּא דִמְגִיחַ לְהוֹן קְרָבִין בְּמִצְרָאֵי

and He brake (or, made rough) the wheels of Pharaoh’s carriages, so that they drave them with hardship, and that they went on and left them behind. And the Mizraee said one to another, Let us flee from the people of the house of Israel; for this is the Word of Yahuah who fought for them in Mizraim.

 

וַאֲמַר יְיָ לְמשֶׁה אַרְכַן יַת יְדָךְ עַל יַמָא וִיתוּבוּן מָאִין עַל מִצְרָאֵי עַל רְתִיכֵהוֹן וְעַל פָּרָשֵׁיהוֹן

And Yahuah said to Mosheh, Stretch forth thy hand over the sea, that the waters may return upon the Mizraee, upon their chariots and upon their horsemen.

 

וְאַרְכַן משֶׁה יַת יְדֵיהּ עַל יַמָא וְתַב יַמָא לְעִידוֹנֵי צַפְרָא לְתוּקְפֵיהּ וּמִצְרָאֵי עַרְקִין כָּל קְבֵיל גְּלָלוֹי וְעַלִּים יְיָ יַת מִצְרָאֵי בְּגוֹ יַמָא דְלָא יְמוּתוּן בְּמִצְעֵי מִן בִּגְלַל דִּיקַבְּלוּן פּוּרְעָנוּת דְּמִשְׁתַּלְחָא לְהוֹן

And Mosheh stretched out his hand over the sea, and the sea returned at the time of the morning unto its strength; and the Mizraee fled from before its waves. And Yahuah strengthened the Mizraee in the midst of the sea, that they should not (soon) die in the midst of it, that they might receive the punishment which had been sent to them.

 

וְתָבוּ גַלְלֵי יַמָא וְחָפוּן יַת רְתִיכַיָיא וְיַת פַּרְשַׁיָא לְכָל מַשִּׁרְיַת פַּרְעה דְּעָלַן בַּתְרֵיהוֹן בְּיַמָא לָא אִישְׁתַּיֵּיר בְּהוֹן עַד חָד

And the waves of the sea returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen and all the host of Pharaoh who had gone in after them, into the sea, not one among them was left.

 

וּבְנֵי יִשְרָאֵל הֲלִיכוּ בְּיַבֶּשְׁתָּא בְּגוֹ יַמָא וּמַיָא לְהוֹן הֵי כְשׁוּרִין מִיַמִּינְהוֹן וּמִשְמָאלֵהוֹן

But the sons of Israel walked on the ground in the midst of the sea, and the waters to them were as walls on their right hand and on their left.

 

וּפְרִיק וּשְׁזִיב יְיָ בְּיוֹמָא הַהוּא יַת יִשְרָאֵל מִן יְדֵיהוֹן דְּמִצְרָאֵי וְחָמוּן יִשְרָאֵל יַת מִצְרָאֵי מֵיתִין וְלָא מֵיתִין רְמָאִין עַל גֵּיף יַמָא

That day Yahuah redeemed and saved Israel from the hand of the Mizraee; and Israel saw the Mizraee, dead and not dead, cast upon the shore of the sea.

 

וְחָמוּן יִשְרָאֵל יַת גְּבוּרַת יְדָא תַקִיפְתָּא דִי עָבַד יְיָ בָּהּ נִיסִין בְּמִצְרַיִם וּדְחִילוּ עַמָא מִן קֳדָם יְיָ וְהֵימִינוּן בְּשׁוּם מֵימְרָא דַיְיָ וּבִנְבוּאָתֵיהּ דְּמשֶׁה עַבְדֵיהּ

And Israel saw the power of the mighty hand by which Yahuah had wrought the miracles in Mizraim; and the people feared before Yahuah, and believed in the Name of the Word of Yahuah, and in the prophecies of Mosheh His servant.

 

 

Chapter 15ט״ו

 

 

הָא בְּכֵן שַׁבַּח משֶׁה וּבְנֵי יִשְרָאֵל יַת שְׁבַח שִׁירָתָא הָדָא קֳדָם יְיָ וְאָמְרִין לְמֵימָר נוֹדֶה וּנְשַׁבְּחָא קֳדָם יְיָ רְמָא דְמִתְגָּאֵי עַל גֵּיוְותָנַיָא וּמִתְנַטֵּל עַל מְנַטְלַיָא כָּל מַאן דְּמִתְגָּאֵי קֳדָמוֹי הוּא בְּמֵימְרֵיהּ פָּרַע מִנֵּיהּ עַל דִּי אָזִיד פַּרְעה רַשִׁיעָא קֳדָם יְיָ וְאִתְנַטַּל בִּלְבָבֵיהּ וּרְדַף בָּתַר עַמָּא בְּנֵי יִשְרָאֵל סוּסְוָון וְרוֹכְבֵיהוֹן רָמָא וּטְמַע יַתְהוֹן בְּיַמָא דְסוּף

Behold: then sang, Mosheh and the sons of Israel this song of praise before Yahuah and saying they said: Thanksgiving and praise we bring before Yahuah Most High, who is glorified above the glorious, and exalted above the exalted; who punisheth by His Word whomsoever glorifieth himself before Him. Therefore when Pharaoh the wicked bare himself proudly before Yahuah, and, being uplifted in his heart, followed after the people of the sons of Israel, their horses and their chariots He threw and buried in the sea of Suph.

 

תּוּקְפַן וְרוֹב תּוּשְׁבָּחָתָן דְּחֵיל עַל כָּל עָלְמַיָא יְיָ אָמַר בְּמֵימְרֵיהּ וַהֲוָה לִי אֱלָהָא פְּרוֹק מִן חַדְיֵי אִמְהוֹן הֲווֹן יַנְקַיָא מְחַוָון בְּאֶצְבָּעַתְהוֹן לְאַבְהַתְהוֹן וְאָמְרִין דֵּין הוּא אֱלָהָן דַּהֲוָה מוֹנִיק לָן דּוּבְשָׁא מִן כֵּיפָא וּמְשַׁח מִן שָׁמִיר טִינְרָא בְּעִידַן דְּאִימַן נַפְקַן לְאַנְפֵּי בָּרָא וִילֵדַן וְשַׁבְקַן יָתָן תַּמָּן וּתְשַׁדַר מַלְאָכָא וּמַסְחֵי יָתָן וּמְלַפֵּף יָתָן וּכְדוּן נַשְׁבְּחִינֵיהּ אֱלָהָא דְּאַבְהָתָן וּנְרוֹמְמִינֵיהּ

Yahuah is Mighty, and greatly to be feared over all the world. He spake in His Word, and became to me a God of salvation. From their mothers’ breasts even the children have given signs with their fingers to their fathers, and said This is our God, who nourished us with honey from the rock, and with oil from the stone of clay, at the time when our mothers went forth upon the face of the field to give us birth, and leave us there; and He sent an angel who washed us and enwrapped us; and now will we praise Him: He is the God of our fathers, and we will exalt Him.

 

אָמְרִין בְּנֵי יִשְרָאֵל יְיָ גַבְרָא עָבֵיד קְרָבֵינָן בְּכָל דַּר וָדַר מִנְדַע גְּבוּרְתֵּיהּ לְעַמֵּיהּ בֵּית יִשְרָאֵל יְיָ שְׁמֵיהּ כִּשְׁמֵיהּ כֵּן גְּבוּרְתֵּיהּ יְהֵי שְׁמֵיהּ מְבָרַךְ לְעָלְמֵי עַלְמִין

The sons of Israel said, Yahuah is a man making war for us: from generation to generation He maketh known His power unto the people of the house of Israel. Yahuah is His Name; according to His Name, so is His power; His Name shall be blessed for ever and ever.

 

אַרְתּוֹכֵי דְפַרְעה וְחֵילְוָותֵיהּ שַׁדָּא בְּיַמָא שִׁיפַּר עוּלְמֵי גִבְרוֹי רְמָא וּטְמַע יַתְהוֹן בְּיַמָא דְסוּף

The chariots of Pharaoh and his hosts He hath cast into the sea; the goodliest of his young men hath He thrown and drowned in the sea of Suph.

 

תְּהוֹמַיָא כַּסּוּן עֲלֵיהוֹן נַחֲתוּ וְשַׁקָעוּ בִּמְצוּלְתֵיהּ דְּיַמָא אִידְמִין הֵי כְאַבְנָא

The deep covered them over, they went down and are buried in the depths of the sea, and are as silent as a stone.

 

יְמִינָךְ יְיָ מַה מְּשַׁבְּחָא הִיא בְּחֵילָא יְמִינָךְ יְיָ תַּבְרִית בַּעַל דְּבָבֵיהוֹן דְּעַמָּךְ דְּקַיְימִין לְקוּבְלֵיהוֹן מִן בִּגְלַל לְאַבְאָשָׁא לְהוֹן

Thy right hand, O Lord, how glorious is it in power? Thy right hand, O Lord, hath cut off the adversaries of Thy people who rose against them to do them hurt.

 

וּבְסוּגֵי גֵּיפְתָנוּתָךְ תְּפַכֵר שׁוּרֵי בַּעֲלֵי דְבָבֵיהוֹן דְּעַמָּךְ תְּגָרֵי בְהוֹן תְּקוֹף רוּגְזָךְ תְּגַמֵּר יַתְהוֹן הֵי כְנוּרָא בָּעֲרָא שַׁלְטָא בְּקַשָׁא

And in the plenitude and greatness of Thy majesty Thou hast destroyed the walls of the enemies of Thy people. Thou wilt pour upon them Thy fierce anger, Thou wilt consume them as the burning fire prevails over the stubble.

 

וּבְמֵימַר מִן קֳדָמָךְ אִתְעֲבִידוּ מַיָא עוּרְמַן עוּרְמַן קָמוּ לְהֵין צְרִירִין הֵי כְזִיקִין מַיָא נָזְלַיָא קָפוּ עֲלֵיהוֹן תְּהוֹמַיָא בְּגוֹ פִילְגוּס דְּיַמָא רַבָּא

For by the Word from before Thee the waters became heaps; they stood, as if bound like skins that confine flowing water, and the depths were congealed in the flood of the great sea.

 

דַּהֲוָה אָמַר פַּרְעה רַשִׁיעָא סַנְאָה וּבַעַל דְּבָבָא אֶרְדוֹף בָּתַר עַמָא בְּנֵי יִשְרָאֵל וְנָרַע יַתְהוֹן שַׁרְיָין עַל גֵּיף יַמָא וּמְסַדְרָא לְקוּבְלֵיהוֹן סִדְרָא קְרָבָא וְנִקְטוֹל בְּהוֹן קְטוֹל רַב וְסַגִי וְנָבִיז מִנְהוֹן בִּיזָא רַבָּא וְנַשְׁבֵּי מִנְהוֹן שִׁבְיָא רַבָּא וְאַפְלוּג בִּיזֵיהוֹן לְעַמִּי עַבְדֵּי קְרָבָא וְכַד תִּתְמְלֵי נַפְשִׁי מִן דָּם קְטוֹלֵיהוֹן מִן בָּתַר כְּדֵין אֶשְׁלוֹף חַרְבִּי וְאֵישֵׁיצֵי יַתְהוֹן בְּיַד יְמִינִי

Pharaoh the wicked, the hater and adversary, did say, I will follow after the people of the sons of Israel, and will lay waste their camp on the bank of the sea: I will set war in array against them, and kill them, small and great, despoil them of much spoil, bring them back into great captivity, and divide their substance among my people who make war: and when my soul is satisfied with the blood of their slain, I will sheathe my sword, having, destroyed them with my right hand.

 

אָשַׁבְתְּ בְּרוּחַ מִן קֳדָמָךְ יְיָ וְכָסִין עֲלֵיהוֹן גִּירִין דְּיַמָא נַחֲתוּ וְשָׁקְעוּ הֵי כְאַבְרָא מַיָא מַמְשַׁבְּחַיָא

Thou didst blow with the wind from before Thee, O Yahuah, and the waves of the sea covered them; they went down, and sank as lead in the proud waters.

 

מָן כְּוָותָךְ בְּאֵילֵי מְרוֹמָא יְיָ מָן כְּוָותָךְ הָדוּר בְּקוּדְשָׁא דָּחֵיל בְּתוּשְׁבְּחָן עֲבֵד נִסִין וּפְרִשַׁן לְעַמֵּיהּ בֵּית יִשְרָאֵל

Who is like Thee among the exalted gods, O Yahuah, who is like Thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders and manifestations for Thy people, the house of Israel?

 

יַמָא וְאַרְעָא הֲווֹן מְדַיְינִין דָּא עִם דָּא כַּחֲדָא יַמָא הֲוָה אָמַר לְאַרְעָא קַבִּילִי בְּנַיְיכִי וְאַרְעָא הֲוַת אָמְרָה לְיַמָא קַבֵּיל קְטִילָנַיִךְ לָא יַמָא הֲוָה בָּעֵי לְמִטְמַע יַתְהוֹן וְלָא אַרְעָא הֲוַת בַּעֲיָא לְמִבְלַע יַתְהוֹן דְּחִילָא הֲוַת אַרְעָא לְמִקְבְּלָא יַתְהוֹן מִן בִּגְלַל דְּלָא יִתְבְּעוּן גַּבָּהּ בְּיוֹם דִּינָא רַבָּא לְעַלְמָא דַּאֲתֵי הֵיכְמָא דְיִתְבַּע מִינָהּ דְּמֵי דְהֶבֶל מִן יַד אַרְכִינַת יַד יְמִינָךְ יְיָ בִּשְׁבוּעָה עַל אַרְעָא דְלָא יִתְבְּעוּן מִינָהּ לְעַלְמָא דְאָתֵי וּפְתָחַת אַרְעָא פּוּמָהּ וּבְלָעַת יַתְהוֹן

The sea spake to the earth, Receive thy children: but the earth spake to the sea, Receive thy murderers. And the sea was not willing to overwhelm them, and the earth was not willing to swallow them up. The earth was afraid to receive them, lest they should be required from her in the day of the great judgment in the world to come, even as the blood of Habel will be required of her: whereupon Thou, O Lord, didst stretch forth Thy right hand in swearing to the earth that in the world to come they should not be required of her. And the earth opened her mouth and consumed them.

 

דַּבַּרְתְּ בְּחַסְדָּךְ עַמָךְ הָאִילֵין דִּי פָרַקְתְּ וְאַחֲסִינַת יַתְהוֹן טַוָור בֵּית מַקְדְּשָׁךְ מְדוֹר בֵּית שְׁכִינַת קוּדְשָׁךְ

Thou hast led in Thy mercy the people whom Thou hast redeemed, and given them the heritage of the mountain of Thy sanctuary, the place of the dwelling of Thy holy Shekinah.

 

שְׁמָעוּ אוּמַיָא יִתְרַגְזוּן דְּחִילָא אֲחָדַת יַת כָּל עַמּוּדֵי דַיְירֵי אַרְעֲהוֹן דִּפְּלִשְׁתָּאֵי

The nations will hear and be afraid; terror will lay hold upon them, even upon all the pillars of the inhabitants of the Palestinian land.

 

הָא בְּכֵן אִתְבַּהֲלוּן רַבְרְבָנֵי אֱדוֹמָאֵי תַּקִּיפֵי מוֹאֲבָאָה אֲחָדַת יַתְהוֹן רְתִיתָא אִתְמְסֵי לִבְּהוֹן בְּגַוֵּיהוֹן כָּל עַמּוּדֵי דַּיְירֵי אַרְעֲהוֹן דִּכְנַעֲנָאֵי

Behold, then will the princes of the Edomaee be confounded, the strong ones of Moaba will be seized with fear, their heart within them will melt away, even all the pillars of the inhabitants of the Kenaanian land.

 

תַּפִּיל עֲלֵיהוֹן אֵימָתָא דְמוֹתָא וּדְחִילָתָא בִּתְקוֹף אֶדְרַע וּגְבוּרְתָּךְ יִשְׁתַּתְּקוּן הֵי כְאַבְנַיָא עַד זְמַן דִּי יַעֲבְרוּן עַמָּךְ יְיָ יַת נַחֲלֵי אַרְנוֹנָא עַד זְמַן דִּי יַעֲבְרוּן עַמָּךְ הָאִילֵין דְּקָנִיתָא יַת מְגוּזָתֵיהּ דְּיוּבְקָא

Through the power of Thy mighty arm, let the terrors of death fall upon them, let them be silent as a stone, till the time when Thy people, O Lord, shall have passed the streams of Arnona, till the time when Thy people whom Thou didst ransom shall have crossed the dividing current of Jabeka.

 

תָּעוּל יַתְהוֹן וְתִנְצוֹב יַתְהוֹן בְּטוּר בֵּית מַקְדְּשָׁךְ אָתַר דִּמְכֻוַּון קְבֵיל כּוּרְסֵי יְקָרָךְ מוּזְמַן קְבֵיל בֵּית שְׁכִינַת קָדְשָׁךְ אַתְקִינְתָּא יְיָ בֵּית מַקְדָּשָׁךְ יְיָ תַּרְתֵּין אִידְיָיךְ שַׁכְלִילוּ יָתֵיהּ

Thou wilt bring them in, and plant them on the mountain of Thy sanctuary, the place which Thou hast provided before the throne of Thy glory, the house of Thy holy Shekinah, which Thou, O Yahuah, hast prepared, Thy sanctuary that with both hands Thou hast established.

 

כַּד חָמוּן עַמָּא בֵּית יִשְרָאֵל יַת נִיסַיָא וְיַת פְּרִישְׁוָותָא דְּעָבַד לְהוֹן קוּדְשָׁא יְהֵי שְׁמֵיהּ מְשַׁבַּח עַל יַמָא דְסוּף וּגְבוּרַת יְדֵיהּ בְּנֵי גְּלַלְיָא עַנְיָין וְאָמְרִין אִילֵין לְאִילֵין אִיתוּ נִיתַּן כְּלִיל דִּרְבוּ בְּרֵישׁ פְּרוֹקַן דְּהוּא מַעֲבִיר וְלָא עָבַר דְּהוּא מַחֲלִיף וְלָא חֲלִיף דְּדִילֵיהּ הוּא כְּלִיל מַלְכוּתָא וְהוּא מֶלֶךְ מַלְכִין בְּעָלְמָא הָדֵין וְדִילֵיהּ הוּא מַלְכוּתָא לְעַלְמָא דְאָתֵי וְדִילֵיהּ הִיא וְהַוְיָא לְעָלְמֵי עַלְמִין

When the people of the house of Israel beheld the signs and manifestations which the Holy One, whose Name be praised, had done at the sea of Suph, and the power of His hand, the children of the captives answering said one to the other, Come, and let us set the crown of majesty on the head of our Redeemer, who maketh to pass over, and passeth not; who changeth, and is not changed; whose is the crown of the kingdom; the King of kings in this world; whose, too, is the kingdom in the world to come, for ever and ever.

 

אֲרוּם עָלוּ סוּסְוַות פַּרְעה בִּרְתִיכוֹי וּבְפָרָשׁוֹי בְּיַמָא וְחָזַר יְיָ עֲלֵיהוֹן יַת מוֹי דְיַמָּא וּבְנֵי יִשְרָאֵל הֲלִיכוּ בְּיַבֶּשְׁתָּא בְּגוֹ יַמָא וְתַמָּן סַלְקוּן עִינָוַון בְּסִימָן וְאִילָנֵי מֵיכְלָא וְיַרְקֵי וּמִגְדֵי בְּאַרְעִית יַמָא

For Pharaoh’s horses with his chariots and horsemen went into the sea, and Yahuah made the waters of the sea to return upon them; but the sons of Israel walked upon the land in the midst of the sea, and there did spring up sweet fountains and trees yielding food and verdure and ripe fruits, (even) on the ground of the sea.

 

וּנְסֵיבַת מִרְיָם נְבִיאָתָא אַחְתֵיהּ דְּאַהֲרן יַת תּוּפָא בִידָהּ וְנַפְקָן כָּל נְשַׁיָא בַּתְרָאָה בְּתוּפַיָיא הֲווֹ חַיְילִין וּבְחִנְגַיָא מְחַנְגִין

And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aharon, took a tambourine in her hand, and all the women came out after her, dancing with tambourines and playing on instruments.

 

וְזָמְרַת לְהוֹן מִרְיָם נוֹדֵי וּנְשַׁבְּחָא קֳדָם יְיָ אֲרוּם תּוּקְפָא וְרוֹמְמוּתָא דִידֵיהּ הוּא עַל גֵּיוְותָנִין הוּא מִתְגָאֵי וְעַל רָמִין הוּא מִתְנַטֵּל עַל דִּי אָזִיד פַּרְעה רַשִׁיעָא וְרָדַף בָּתַר עַמָּא בְּנֵי יִשְרָאֵל סוּסְוָותֵיהּ וּרְתִיכוֹי רְמָא וּטְמַע יַתְהוֹן בְּיַמָא דְסוּף

And Miriam sang to them, Let us give thanks and praise before Yahuah, for might and supremacy are His; above the proud He is glorified, and above the lofty He is exalted. When the wicked, Pharaoh in his pride followed after the people of the sons of Israel, his horses and his chariots did He cast and drown in the sea of Suph.

 

וְאַטֵּיל משֶׁה יַת יִשְרָאֵל מִן יַמָא דְסוּף וּנְפָקוּ לְמַדְבְּרָא דְּחָלוּצָא וְטַיְילוּ תְּלָתָא יוֹמִין בְּמַדְבְּרָא בְּטֵילִין מִן פִּיקוּדַיָיא וְלָא אַשְׁכָּחוּ מַיָא

And Mosheh made Israel go forward from the sea of Suph, and they went forth into the wilderness of Chalutsa. And they journeyed three days in the desert, empty of instruction, and found no water.

 

וְאָתוּ לְמָרָה וְלָא יָכִילוּ לְמִשְׁתֵּי מוֹי מִמָּרָה אֲרוּם מְרִירִין הִינוּן בְּגִין כֵּן קְרָא שְׁמֵיהּ מָרָה

And they came to Marah, but could not drink the waters of Marah because they were bitter; therefore he called the name of it Marah.

 

וְאִתְרַעֲמוּ עַמָא עַל משֶׁה לְמֵימַר מַה נִּשְׁתֵּי

And the people murmured against Mosheh, saying, What shall we drink?

 

וְצַלֵּי קֳדָם יְיָ וְאַחְוַיֵהּ לֵיהּ יְיָ אִילַן מְרִיר דְּאַרְדִפְנֵי וְכָתַב עֲלוֹי שְׁמָא רַבָּא וְיַקִּירָא וְטָלַק לְגוֹי מַיָא וְאִתְחַלּוּן מַיָא תַּמָּן שַׁוִי לֵיהּ מֵימְרָא דַיְיָ גְּזֵרַת שַׁבְּתָא וְקַיֵּים אִיקַר אַבָּא וְאִמָּא דִינֵי פִּדְעָא וּמַשְׁקוֹפֵי וּקְנָסִין דְמִקְנְסֵי לְחַיָּיבַיָא וְתַמָּן נַסְיָא בְּנִסְיוֹנָא עֲשִירְיָתָא

And he prayed before Yahuah, and Yahuah showed him the bitter tree of Ardiphne; and he wrote upon it the great and glorious Name, and cast it into the midst of the waters, and the waters were rendered sweet. And there did the Word of Yahuah appoint to him the ordinance of the Sabbath, and the statute of honoring father and mother, the judgments concerning wounds and bruises., and the punishments wherewith offenders are punished; and there he tried (them) with the tenth trial,

 

וַאֲמַר אִין קַבָּלָא תְקַבֵּל לְמֵימְרָא דַיְיָ אֱלָהָךְ וּדְכָשַׁר קֳדָמוֹי תַּעֲבֵיד וְתַצֵּית לְפִקוּדוֹי וְתִנְטוֹר כָּל קְיָימוֹי כָּל מַרְעִין בִּישִׁין דְּשַׁוִּיתִי עַל מִצְרָאֵי לָא אַשְׁוִינוּן עֲלָךְ וְאִם תַּעַבְרוּן עַל פִּתְגָּמֵי אוֹרַיְיתָא וּמִשְׁתַּלְחִין עֲלָךְ אִין תְּתִיבוּן אַעֲדִינוּן מִנָךְ אֲרוּם אֲנָא הוּא יְיָ אַסְאָךְ

and said, If you will truly hearken to the Word of Yahuah your God, and do that which is right before Him, and will listen to His precepts and keep all His statutes, all those evil things that I laid upon the Mizraee I will not lay upon thee: but if thou wilt transgress against the word of the law, upon thee shall they be sent. If thou convert, I will remove them from thee; for I am Yahuah thy Healer.

 

וְאָתוּ לְאֵלִים וּבְאֵלִים תַּרְתֵּי סְרֵי עֵינַוָון דְּמַיָין עַנְוָוא לְכָל שִׁבְטָא וְשׁוּבְעִין דִּקְלִין כָּל קְבֵיל שׁוּבְעִין סָבַיָא דְיִשְרָאֵל וּשְׁרוֹן תַּמָּן עַל מַיָא

And they came to Elim; and in Elim were twelve fountains of water, a fountain for each tribe; and seventy palm-trees, corresponding with the seventy elders of Israel: and they encamped there by the waters.

 

 

Chapter 16ט״ז

 

 

וּנְטָלוּ מֵאֵלִים וְאָתוּן כָּל כְּנִשְׁתָּא דְּיִשְרָאֵל לְמַדְבְּרָא דְסִין דְּבֵין אֵלִים וּבֵין סִינָי בַּחֲמֵיסַר יוֹמִין לְיַרְחָא דְאִיָּיר הוּא יַרְחָא תִּנְיָנָא לְמִפַּקְהוֹן מֵאַרְעָא דְמִצְרָיִם

And the whole congregation of Israel journeyed from Elim, and came to the desert of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the month of Ijar, the second month from their going forth from the land of Mizraim.

 

וּבְהַהוּא יוֹמָא פָּסַק לְהוֹן לִישָׁא דְאַפִּיקוּ מִמִּצְרַיִם וְאִתְרַעֲמוּן כָּל בְּנֵי יִשְרָאֵל עַל משֶׁה וְעַל אַהֲרן בְּמַדְבְּרָא

And on that day the bread which they had brought out of Mizraim was finished. And all the sons of Israel grumbled against Mosheh and against Aharon in the desert.

 

וַאֲמָרוּ לְהוֹן בְּנֵי יִשְרָאֵל הַלְוַאי דְּמִיתְנָא בְּמֵימְרָא דַיְיָ בְּאַרְעָא דְמִצְרַיִם כַּד הֲוֵינָא יַתְבִין עַל דִּדְוָתָא דְבִיסְרָא כַּד הֲוֵינָא אָכְלִין לַחְמָא וּשְבֵעִין אֲרוּם הַנְפַּקְתּוּן יָתָן לְמַדְבְּרָא הָדֵין לְקַטָלָא יַת כָּל קְהָלָא הָדֵין בְּכַפְנָא

And the sons of Israel said to them, Would that we had died by the Word of Yahuah in the land of Mizraim, when we sat by the cisterns of meat, and ate bread and had enough! Why hast thou brought us out into this wilderness to kill all this congregation with hunger?

 

וַאֲמַר יְיָ לְמשֶׁה הָא אֲנָא מָחִית לְכוֹן לַחֲמָא מִן שְׁמַיָא דְּאִיצְטְנַא לְכוֹן מִן שֵׁרוּיָא וְיִפְקוּן עַמָּא וְיִלְקְטוּן פִּתְגַּם יוֹם בְּיוֹמֵיהּ מִן בִּגְלַל לְנַסּוֹיֵיהוֹן אִין נַטְרִין מִצְוָותָא דְאוֹרַיְיתִי אִין לָא

And Yahuah said to Mosheh, Behold, I will cause the bread which hath been laid up for you from the beginning to descend from heaven: and the people shall go out and gather the matter of a day by the day, that I may try them whether they will keep the commandments of My law or not.

 

וִיהֵי בְּיוֹמָא שְׁתִיתָאֵי וְיִזְמְנוּן מַה דְּיַיְתוּן לְקָמֵיהוֹן לְמֵיכַל בְּיוֹמָא דְּשַׁבַּתָּא וִיעַרְבוּן בְּבָתַּיָא וְיִשְׁתַּתְּפוּן בְּדָרָתֵיהוֹן בְּגִין לְמֵיתַיָיא מִדֵּין לְדֵין וִיהֵי לְהוֹן בְּכוּפְלָא עַל מַה דִּמְלַקְטוּן יוֹמָא יוֹמָא

And on the sixth day they shall prepare what they set before them to eat on the day of the Sabbath; and they shall mix in the houses and communicate in their dwellings, so that by carrying this to that, they may have double of that which they gather from day to day.

 

וַאֲמַר משֶׁה וְאַהֲרן לְכָל בְּנֵי יִשְרָאֵל בְּרַמְשָׁא וְתִנְדְּעוּן אֲרוּם יְיָ אַפֵּיק יַתְכוֹן פְּרִיקִין מֵאַרְעָא דְמִצְרָיִם

And Mosheh and Aharon said to all the sons of Israel, At evening you shall know that Yahuah hath brought you out free from the land of Mizraim;

 

וּבְצַפְרָא יִתְגְּלֵי עֲלֵיכוֹן יְקַר שְׁכִינְתָּא דַיְיָ כַּד שְׁמִיעַן קֳדָמוֹי יַת תּוּרְעֲמַתְכוֹן קֳדָם יְיָ וַאֲנַחְנָא מָה אֲנַן חֲשִׁיבִין אֲרוּם אִתְרַעַמְתּוּן עֲלָנָא

and in the morning will be revealed to you the glory of the Shekinah of Yahuah; and we, what are we accounted, that you complain against us?

 

וַאֲמַר משֶׁה בְּדֵין תֵדְעוּן בִּדְיַזְמִין יְיָ לְכוֹן בְּרַמְשָׁא בִּישְרָא לְמֵיכוֹל וְלַחְמָא בְּצַפְרָא לְמִשְבּוֹעַ בְּדִשְׁמִיעַן קֳדָם יְיָ יַת תּוּרְעֲמוּתְכוֹן דְּאַתּוּן מִתְרַעֲמִין עֲלוֹי וַאֲנַחְנָא מָה אֲנַן חֲשִׁיבִין לָא עֲלָנָא תּוּרְעֲמַתְכוֹן אֱלָהֵן עַל מֵימְרָא דַיְיָ

And Mosheh said, By this you shall know, when Yahuah prepareth you at evening flesh to eat, and in the morning bread to satisfy, that your complainings wherewith you complain against Him are heard before Yahuah. And we, what are we accounted? Your complaints are not against us, but against the Word of Yahuah.

 

וַאֲמַר משֶׁה לְאַהֲרן אֵימַר לְכָל כְּנִישְׁתָּא דִבְנֵי יִשְרָאֵל קְרִיבוּ קֳדָם יְיָ אֲרוּם שְׁמִיעַן קֳדָמוֹי יַת תּוּרְעֲמוּתְכוֹן

Mosheh said to Aharon, Bid all the congregation of the sons of Israel draw nigh before Yahuah; for your murmuring are heard before Him.

 

וַהֲוָה בְּמַלָלוּת אַהֲרן עִם כָּל כְּנִישְׁתָּא דְיִשְרָאֵל וְאִתְפְּנִיאוּ לְמַדְבְּרָא וְהָא יְקַר שְׁכִינְתָּא דַיְיָ אִתְגְּלֵי בַּעֲנַן יְקָרָא

And it was while Aharon was speaking with all the congregation of Israel that they turned towards the desert, and, behold, the glory of the majesty of Yahuah was revealed in the cloud of glory.

 

וּמַלֵּיל יְיָ עִם משֶׁה לְמֵימָר

And Yahuah spake to Mosheh, saying

 

שְׁמִיעַ קֳדָמַי יַת תּוּרְעֲמוּת בְּנֵי יִשְרָאֵל מַלֵּיל עִמְהוֹן לְמֵימַר בֵּינֵי שִׁמְשְׁתָא תֵיכְלוּן בִּשְרָא וּבְצַפְרָא תֵיכְלוּן לַחְמָא וְתִנְדְּעוּן אֲרוּם אֲנָא הוּא יְיָ אֱלָהָכוֹן

Hearing I have heard the murmurings of the sons of Israel before Me. Speak thou with them, saying, Between the evenings (suns) you shall eat flesh, and in the morning shall you eat bread, and shall know that I am Yahuah your God.

 

וַהֲוָה בְּרַמְשָׁא וּסְלִיקוּ פִּיסְיוֹנִין וַחֲפוֹי יַת מַשְׁרִיתָא וּבְצַפְרָא הֲוָת אֲנָחַת טַלָּא מִתְקַדְּשָׁא מִיתַקְנָא הֵי כְּפָתּוּרִין חֲזוֹר חֲזוֹר לְמַשְׁרִיתָא

And it came to pass, that in the evening the pheasants came up and covered the camp; and in the morning there was a fall of holy dew, prepared as a table, round about the camp:

 

וּסְלִיקוּ עֲנָנַיָא וְאָחִיתוּ מַנָּא עִילַוֵי אֲנָחוּת טַלָא וַהֲוַת עַל אַנְפֵּי מַדְבְּרָא דְקִיק מְסַרְגֵּל דְּקִיק כִּגְלִידָא עַל אַרְעָא

and the clouds ascended and caused manna to descend upon the dew; and there was upon the face of the desert a minute (substance) in lines, minute as the hoar frost upon the ground.

 

וְחָמוּן בְּנֵי יִשְרָאֵל וַהֲווֹן תַּמְהִין וְאָמְרִין אֵינַשׁ לְחַבְרֵיהּ מַן הוּא אֲרוּם לָא יָדְעוּן מַה הוּא וַאֲמַר משֶׁה לְהוֹן הוּא לַחְמָא דְּאִצְטְנַא לְכוֹן מִן שֵׁירוּיָא בִּשְׁמֵי מְרוֹמָא וּכְדוּן יְהָבֵיהּ יְיָ לְכוֹן לְמֵיכַל

And the sons of Israel beheld, and wondered, and said, a man to his companion, Man Hu? for they knew not what it was. And Mosheh said to them, It is the bread which hath been laid up for you from the beginning in the heavens on high, and now Yahuah will give it you to eat.

 

דֵּין פִּתְגָּמָא דְפַקֵּיד יְיָ לְקוּטוּ מִנֵיהּ גְבַר לְפוּם מֵיכְלֵיהּ עוּמְרָא לְגוּלְגַלְתָּא מִנְיַין נַפְשָׁתֵיכוֹן גְּבַר לְפוּם סְכוּם אִינְשֵׁי מַשְׁכְּנֵיהּ תִּסְבוּן

This is the word which Yahuah hath dictated: You are to gather of it, every man according to the number of your souls; every man according to the mouth of the number of the persons of his tabernacle, are you to take.

 

וַעֲבָדוּ כֵן בְּנֵי יִשְרָאֵל וּלְקִיטוּ מַנָּא מַאן דְּמַסְגֵי וּמַאן דְּאַזְעֵיר

And the sons of Israel did so, and gathered manna more or less;

 

וְאָכִילוּ בְּעוּמְרָא לָא אִישְׁתַּיֵּיר מִן מְכִילְתָּא מַאן דְּאַסְגֵי לְמִלְקַט וּדְאַזְעֵר לְמִילְקַט לָא חָסֵר מִן מְכִילְתָּא גְּבַר לְפוּם מֵיכְלֵיהּ לְקִיטוּ

but when they measured by the homer, nothing remained above the measure of him who had gathered much; and he who had gathered little, wanted nothing of the measure: every man according to the mouth of his eating, so they gathered.

 

וַאֲמַר משֶׁה לְהוֹן גְּבַר לָא יְשַׁיֵּיר מִנֵּיהּ עַד צַפְרָא

And Mosheh said to them, Let no man make a reserve of it till the morning.

 

וְלָא קַבִּילוּ מִן משֶׁה וְשַׁיְירוּ דָתָן וַאֲבִירָם גּוּבְרַיָיא חַיָיבַיָא מִנֵיהּ עַד צַפְרָא וְאַרְחֵשׁ מוֹרְנִין וּסְרֵי וּרְגַז עֲלֵיהוֹן משֶׁה

But (some of them) hearkened not to Mosheh: Dathan and Abiram, men of wickedness, did reserve of it till the morning; but it produced worms and putrefied; and Mosheh was angry with them.

 

וַהֲווֹ מְלַקְטִין יָתֵיהּ מִן עִדַן צַפְרָא עַד אַרְבַּע שָׁעִין דְּיוֹמָא אֵינַשׁ לְפוּם מֵיכְלֵיהּ וּמִן אַרְבַּע שָׁעִין וּלְהָאֵל שָׁחִין שִׁימְשָׁא עִילוֹי וַהֲוָה שַׁיִיח וּמִתְעַבֵיד מַבּוּעִין דְּמַיִין וְנַגְדִין עַד יַמָא רַבָּא וְאַתְיָין חֵיוַן דַּכְיַין וּבְעִירָן וְשַׁתְיַין מִינֵהּ וַהֲווֹ בְּנֵי יִשְרָאֵל צַדְיַין וְאָכְלִין יַתְהוֹן

And they gathered from the time of the dawn until the fourth hour of the day, every man according to his eating; but at the fourth hour, when the sun had waxed hot upon it, it liquefied, and made streams of water, which flowed away into the Great Sea; and wild animals that were clean, and cattle, came to drink of it, and the sons of Israel hunted, and ate them.

 

וַהֲוָה בְּיוֹמָא שְׁתִיתָאָה לְקָטוּ לְחֵם בְּכֵפְלָא תְּרֵין עוּמְרִין לְבַר נַשׁ חַד וְאָתוֹי כָּל רַבְרְבָנֵי כְנִשְׁתָּא וְתַנּוּ לְמשֶׁה

And it came to pass on the sixth day they gathered double bread, two homers a man; and all the princes of the congregation came and told Mosheh.

 

וַאֲמַר לְהוֹן משֶׁה הוּא דְמַלֵּיל יְיָ עֲבַדְתּוּן שַׁבָּא שַׁבַּת קוּדְשָׁא קֳדָם יְיָ לִמְחַר יַת דְּאַתּוּן צְרִיכִין לְמֵיפָא מְחַר אֵיפוּ יוֹמָא דֵין וְיַת דְּאַתּוּן צְרִיכִין לִמְבַשְׁלָא מְחַר בְּשִׁילוּ יוֹמָא דֵין וְיַת כָּל מַה דְּמִשְׁתַּיַּיר מִן מַה דִּי תֵיכְלוּן יוֹמָא דֵין אַצְנִיעוּ יָתֵיהּ וִיהֵי נְטִיר עַד צַפְרָא

And Mosheh said to them, This which Yahuah hath told you, do. Tomorrow is the rest of the holy Sabbath before Yahuah: That which is needful to have to bake for tomorrow, bake today; and what is needful to boil for tomorrow, boil today: and all whatever remaineth of that which on eat today lay it up, and it shall be preserved until the morning.

 

וְאַצְנָעוּ יָתֵיהּ עַד צַפְרָא הֵיכְמָא דְפַקֵּיד משֶׁה וְלָא סְרִי וְרִיחֲשָׁא לָא הֲוָת בֵּיהּ

And they laid it up until the morning, as Mosheh had directed them; and it did not corrupt, and no worm was in it.

 

וַאֲמַר משֶׁה אִכְלוּהוּ יוֹמָא דֵין אֲרוּם שַׁבְּתָא יוֹמָא דֵין קֳדָם יְיָ יוֹמָא דֵין לָא תִשְׁכְּחוּנֵיהּ בְּחַקְלָא

And Mosheh said to them, Eat today, because this is the Sabbath day before Yahuah. This day you will not find any in the field.

 

שִׁתָּא יוֹמִין תִּלְקְטוּנֵיהּ וּבְיוֹמָא שְׁבִיעָאָה דְהוּא שַׁבְּתָא לָא יְהֵי בֵיהּ מַנָּא נָחִית

Six days you shall gather, but on the seventh day, which is the Sabbath, no manna will come down.

 

וַהֲוָה בְּיוֹמָא שְׁבִיעָאָה נָפְקוּ מִן רַשִׁיעֵי עַמָּא לְמִילְקוֹט מַנָּא וְלָא אַשְׁכָּחוּ

And it was that on the seventh day some of the wicked people went forth to gather manna, but they found none.

 

וַאֲמַר יְיָ לְמשֶׁה עַד אֵימַת אַתּוּן מְסַרְבִין לְמִנְטוֹר פִּיקוּדַי וְאוֹרַיְיתָי

And Yahuah said to Mosheh, How long will ye refuse to keep My commandments and My laws?

 

חָמוּן אֲרוּם יְיָ יְהַב לְכוֹן יַת שַׁבְּתָא בְּגִין כֵּן הוּא יָהִיב לְכוֹן בְּיוֹם שְׁתִיתָאָה לְחֵם לִתְּרֵין יוֹמִין שְׁרוֹן גְּבַר בְּאַתְרֵיהּ וְלָא תְטַלְטְלוּן מִדַּעַם מִרְשׁוּתָא לִרְשׁוּתָא בַּר מֵאַרְבָּעָה גַרְמִידֵי וְלָא יִפּוֹק אֵינַשׁ מֵאַתְרֵיהּ לְטַיְילָא לְבַר מִתְּרֵין אַלְפִין גַּרְמִידֵי בְּיוֹמָא שְׁבִיעָאָה

Behold, because I have given you the Sabbath, I gave you on the sixth day bread for two days. Let every man abide in his Place, and not wander from one locality to another, beyond four yards; nor let any man go forth to walk beyond two thousand yards on the seventh day;

 

וְנָחוּ עַמָּא בְּיוֹמָא שְׁבִיעָאָה

for the people shall repose on the seventh day.

 

וּקְרוֹן בֵּית יִשְרָאֵל יַת שְׁמֵיהּ מַנָּא וְהוּא כְּבַר זְרַע כּוּסְבַּר חֵיוַר וְטַעֲמֵיהּ כַּאֲשִׁישְׁיַין בִּדְבָשׁ

And the house of Israel called the name of it Manna; and it was like the seed of coriander, white, and the taste of it like preparations of honey.

 

וַאֲמַר משֶׁה דֵּין פִּתְגָמָא דְפַקֵיד יְיָ לְאַצְנָעָא מְלֵי עוּמְרָא מִנֵּיהּ לְמַטָּרָא לְדָרֵיכוֹן מִן בִּגְלַל דְּיֶחְמוּן דָּרַיָא מְסַרְבַיָיא יַת לַחְמָא דְאוֹכְלִית יַתְכוֹן בְּמַדְבְּרָא בְּהַנְפָקוּתִי יַתְכוֹן מֵאַרְעָא דְמִצְרָיִם

And Mosheh said, This is the thing which Yahuah hath commanded to lay up of it a homer full to keep in your generations; that perverse generations may see the bread which you have eaten in the wilderness, in your coming forth out of the land of Mizraim.

 

וַאֲמַר משֶׁה לְאַהֲרן סַב צְלוּחִית דְּפָחַר חֲדָא וְהַב תַּמָּן מְלֵי עוּמְרָא מַנָא וְאַצְנַע יָתֵיהּ קֳדָם יְיָ לְמַטְרָא לְדָרֵיכוֹן

And Mosheh said to Aharon, Take one earthen vase, and put therein a full homera of manna, and lay it up before Yahuah to be kept unto your generations.

 

הֵיכְמָא דְּפַקֵּיד יְיָ יַת משֶׁה וְאַצְנְעֵיהּ אַהֲרן קֳדָם סַהֲדוּתָא לְמַטְרָא

As Yahuah commanded Mosheh, so did Aharon, lay it up before the testimony to be kept.

 

וּבְנֵי יִשְרָאֵל אָכְלוּ יַת מַנָּא אַרְבְּעִין שְׁנִין בְּחַיּוֹהִי דְמשֶׁה עַד מֵיתֵיהוֹן לְאַרְעָא מֵיתִיבָא יַת מַנָּא אָכְלוּ אַרְבְּעִין יוֹמִין בָּתַר מוֹתֵיהּ עַד דְּעָבְרוּ יוּרְדְּנָא וְעָלוּ לִסְיָיפֵי אַרְעָא דִכְנָעַן

And the children of Israel ate the manna forty years, until they came to an inhabited land: manna did they eat forty days after his death, until they had passed the Jordena, and entered upon the borders of the land of Kenaan.

 

וְעִמְרָא חָד מִן עַשְרָא לִתְלַת סְאִין הוּא

And a homera is one tenth of three seahs.

 

 

Chapter 17י״ז

 

 

וּנְטָלוּ כָּל כְּנִשְׁתָּא דִבְנֵי יִשְרָאֵל מִמַּדְבְּרָא דְסִין לְמִטְלָנֵיהוֹן עַל מֵימְרָא דַיְיָ וּשְׁרוֹ בִּרְפִידִים אַתְרָא דְבַטִּילוּ אִידֵיהוֹן מִמִצְוָותָא דְאוֹרַיְתָא וְאִתְיַיבְּשׁוּ מַבּוּעַיָא וְלָא הֲוָה מוֹי לְמִשְׁתֵּי לְעַמָּא

And all the congregation of the sons of Israel journeyed from the desert of Sin by their journeyings according to the word of Yahuah, and they encamped in Rephidim, a place where their hands were idle in the commandments of the law, and the fountains were dry, and there was no water for the people to drink.

 

וְנָצוּ רַשִׁיעֵי עַמָא עִם משֶׁה וְאָמָרוּ הַב לָן מוֹי וְנִשְׁתֵּי וַאֲמַר לְהוֹן משֶׁה מַה נָּצַן אַתּוּן עִמִּי וּמַה מְנַסֵן אַתּוּן קֳדָם יְיָ

And the wicked of the people contended with Mosheh, and said, Give us water, that we may drink. And Mosheh said to them, Why contend you with me? and why tempt you before Yahuah?

 

וּצְחִי תַמָּן עַמָּא לְמוֹי וְאִתְרָעַם עַמָּא עַל משֶׁה וַאֲמַר לְמָא דְנַן אַסֵיקְתָּנָא מִמִּצְרַיִם לְקַטְלָא יָתָנָא וְיַת בְּנָנָא וְיַת גֵּיתָנָא בְּצָחוּתָא

But the people were athirst for water, and the people murmured against Mosheh, and said, Why hast thou made us come up out of Mizraim, to kill us, and our children, and our cattle with thirst?

 

וְצַלִּי משֶׁה קֳדָם יְיָ לְמֵימַר מַה אַעֲבֵיד לְעַמָּא הָדֵין תּוּב קָלִיל זְעֵיר וְהִינוּן רַגְמִין יָתִי

And Mosheh prayed before Yahuah, saying What shall I do for this people? Yet a very little, and they will stone me.

 

וַאֲמַר יְיָ לְמשֶׁה עִיבַּר קֳדָם עַמָּא וּדְבַר עִמָּךְ מִסָּבֵי יִשְרָאֵל וְחוּטְרָךְ דְּמָחִית בֵּיהּ יַת נַהֲרָא דְּבַר בִּידָךְ וְאִיזֵיל לָךְ מִן קֳדָם תּוּרְעֲמַתְהוֹן

And Yahuah said to Mosheh, Pass over before the people, and take with thee some of the elders of Israel, and the rod with which thou didst smite the river take in thy hand, and go from the face of their murmuring.

 

הָאֲנָא קָאִים קֳדָמָךְ תַּמָּן בְּאַתְרָא דְתֶחֱמֵי רוֹשֶׁם רִיגְלָא בְּחוֹרֵב וְתִמְחֵי בֵיהּ בְּטִינָר בְּחוּטְרָךְ וְיִפְקוּן מִינֵהּ מוֹי לְמִשְׁתֵּי וְיִשְׁתּוּן עַמָּא וְעָבַד הֵיכְדֵין משֶׁה קֳדָם סָבֵי יִשְרָאֵל

Behold, I will stand before thee there, on the spot where thou sawest the impress of the foot on Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock with thy rod, and therefrom shall come forth waters for drinking, and the people shall drink. And Mosheh did so before the elders of Israel.

 

וּקְרָא שְׁמָא דְאַתְרָא הַהוּא נִסְיוֹנָא וּמַצּוּתָא בְּגִין דְּנָצוּ בְּנֵי יִשְרָאֵל עִם משֶׁה וּבְגִין דְּנַסְיַין קֳדָם יְיָ לְמֵימַר הַאִין קוּשְׁטָא אִיקַר שְׁכִינְתָּא דַיְיָ שַׁרְיָא בֵּינָנָא אִין לָא

And he called the name of that place Temptation and Strife; because there the sons of Israel contended with Mosheh, and because they tempted Yahuah, saying, Doth the glory of the majesty of Yahuah truly dwell among us, or not?

 

וְאָתָא עֲמָלֵק מֵאַרַע דְּרוֹמָא וְשַׁוֵור בְּלֵילְיָא הַהוּא אֶלֶף וְשִׁית מְאָה מִילִין וּמִן בִּגְלַל מַצּוּתָא דַּהֲוָה בֵינֵי עֵשָו וּבֵינֵי יַעֲקב אָתָא וְאַגַּח קְרָבָא עִם יִשְרָאֵל בִּרְפִידִים וַהֲוָה נְסִיב וְקָטִיל גּוּבְרִין מִדְּבֵית דָּן דְּלָא הֲוָה עֲנָנָא מְקַבִּיל יַתְהוֹן מִן בִּגְלַל פּוּלְחָנָא נוּכְרָאָה דִי בֵינֵיהוֹן

And Amalek came from the land of the south and leaped on that night a thousand and six hundred miles; and on account of the disagreement which had been between Esau and Jakob, he came and waged war with Israel in Rephidim, and took and killed (some of the) men of the house of Dan; for the cloud did not embrace them, because of the strange worship that was among them.

 

וַאֲמַר משֶׁה לִיהוֹשֻׁעַ בְּחַר לָנָא גּוּבְרִין גִּבָּרִין וְתַקִּיפִין בְּפִקּוּדַיָא וְנִצְחָנֵי קְרָבָא וּפוּק מִתְּחוֹת עֲנָנֵי יְקָרָא וּסְדַר סִדְרֵי קְרָבָא לִקְבֵיל מַשִׁירְיַין עֲמָלֵק מְחַר אֲנָא קָאִים בְּצוֹמָא מֵעַתַּד בְּזַכְוָות אַבְהָתָא רֵישֵׁי עַמָּא וְזַכְוַות אִימְהָתָא דִמְתִילַן לִגְלִימָתָא וְחוּטְרָא דְאִתְעֲבִידוּ בֵיהּ נִיסִין מִן קֳדָם יְיָ בִּידִי

And Mosheh said to Jehoshua, Choose such men as are strong in the precepts, and victorious in fight; and go, under the Cloud of glory, and set battle in array against the hosts of Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand, prepared with fasting, with the righteous fathers of the chiefs of the people, and the righteous mothers who are like the hills, with the rod with which the miracles have been wrought from before Yahuah, in my hand.

 

וְעָבַד יְהוֹשֻׁעַ הֵיכְמָא דְאָמַר לֵיהּ משֶׁה לְאַגָחָא קְרָבָא בַּעֲמָלֵק וּמשֶׁה אַהֲרן וְחוּר סְלִיקוּ לְרֵישׁ רָמָתָא

And Jehoshua did as Mosheh had bidden him, to wage war with Amalek. And Mosheh, and Aharon, and Hur went up to the top of the height.

 

וַהֲוָה כַד זְקֵיף משֶׁה יְדוֹי בִּצְלוֹי וּמִתְגַּבְּרִין דְּבֵית יִשְרָאֵל וְכַד הֲוָה מָנַח יְדוֹי מִן לְמַצְלַיָיא וּמִתְגַּבְּרִין דְּבֵית עֲמָלֵק

And it was, when Mosheh lifted up his hands in prayer, that the house of Israel prevailed; and when he rested his hand from praying, that the house of Amalek prevailed.

 

וִידוֹי דְמשֶׁה הֲווֹ יַקְרִין מִן בִּגְלַל דְּעִכַּב קְרָבָא לִמְחַר וְלָא אִזְדְּרַז בְּיוֹמָא הַהוּא לְפוּרְקָנָא דְיִשְרָאֵל וְלָא הֲוָה יָכִיל לְמִיזְקַפְהוֹן בִּצְלוֹי וּמִן דַּהֲוָה צָבֵי לְסִגּוּפֵי נַפְשֵׁיהּ נְסִיבוּ אַבְנָא וְשַׁוִּיוּ תְּחוֹתוֹי וִיתֵיב עִילַוָּהּ וְאַהֲרן וְחוּר מְסַעֲדִין לִידוֹי מִיכָּא חָד וּמִכָּא חָד וְהַוָּאָה יְדוֹי פְּרִיסַן בְּהֵימְנוּתָא בִּצְלוֹ וְצוֹמָא עַד מִטְמוֹעַ שִׁמְשָׁא

And the hands of Mosheh were heavy, because the conflict was prolonged till the morrow, and the deliverance of Israel was not prepared on that day; and he could not hold them up in prayer; on which account he would have afflicted his soul. And they took a stone, and placed it under him, and he sat upon it; and Aharon and Hur supported his hand, this the one, and that the other; and his hands were outstretched with firmness, (or, fidelity,) in prayer and fasting, until the going down of the sun.

 

וּתְבַר יְהוֹשֻׁעַ יַת עֲמָלֵק דְּקָטַע רֵישֵׁי גִיבָּרַיָא דְּעַמֵּיהּ עַל פּוּם מֵימְרָא דַיְיָ בִּקְטִילַת סַיְיפָא

And Jehoshua shattered Amalek, and cut off the heads, of the strong men of his people, by the mouth of the Word of Yahuah, with the slaughter of the sword.

 

וַאֲמַר יְיָ לְמשֶׁה כְּתוֹב דָּא דוּכְרָנָא בְּסֵפֶר סָבַיָיא דְמִלְקַדְמִין וְשַׁוִּי פִּתְגָמַיָא הָאִינוּן בְּמִשְׁמָעֵיהּ דִּיהוֹשֻׁעַ אֲרוּם מִימְחָא אֶמְחֵי יַת דּוּכְרָן עֲמָלֵק מִתְּחוֹת שְׁמַיָא

And Yahuah said unto Mosheh, Write this memorial in the book of the elders that were of old, and these words in the hearing, of Jehoshua, that blotting, I will blot out the memory of Amalek from under the heavens.

 

וּבְנָא משֶׁה מַדְבְּחָה וּקְרָא שְׁמֵיהּ מֵימְרָא דַיְיָ דֵּין נִיסָא דִילִי דְנִיסָא דְעָבַר אַתְרָא בְּגִינִי הוּא

And Mosheh builded an altar, and called the name of it, The Word of Yahuah is my banner; for the sign which He hath wrought (in this) place was on my behalf.

 

וַאֲמַר אֲרוּם קַיֵּים מֵימְרָא דַיְיָ בְּכוּרְסֵיהּ יְקָרֵיהּ דְּהוּא בְּמֵימְרֵיהּ יַגִּיחַ קְרָבָא בִּדְבֵית עֲמָלֵק וִישֵׁיצֵי יַתְהוֹן לִתְלָתֵי דָרַיָא מִדָּרָא דְעַלְמָא דֵין וּמִדָּרָא דִמְשִׁיחָא וּמִדָּרָא דְעַלְמָא דְאָתֵי

And he said, Because the Word of Yahuah hath sworn by the throne of His glory, that He by His Word will fight against those of the house of Amalek, and destroy them unto three generations; from the generation of this world, from the generation of the Meshiha, and from the generation of the world to come.
