You ·divided [split; opened] the sea in front of ·our ancestors [L them]; they ·walked [passed] through the sea on dry ground [Ex. 14–15]. But you threw ·the people chasing them into the deep water [their pursuers into the depths], like a stone thrown into ·mighty [raging; surging] waters.
You saw the anguish of our parents in Egypt. You heard their cries at the Red Sea; You amazed Pharaoh, his servants, and the people of his land with wonders and miracle-signs. You knew their bullying arrogance against your people; you made a name for yourself that lasts to this day. You split the sea before them; they crossed through and never got their feet wet; You pitched their pursuers into the deep; they sank like a rock in the storm-tossed sea. By day you led them with a Pillar of Cloud, and by night with a Pillar of Fire To show them the way they were to travel. You came down onto Mount Sinai, you spoke to them out of heaven; You gave them instructions on how to live well, true teaching, sound rules and commands; You introduced them to your Holy Sabbath; Through your servant Moses you decreed commands, rules, and instruction. You gave bread from heaven for their hunger, you sent water from the rock for their thirst. You told them to enter and take the land, which you promised to give them.
And Thou didst divide the yam before them, so that they went through the midst of the yam on the yabashah; and their persecutors Thou threwest into the depths, as an even (stone) into the mighty waters.
Pharaoh and all who served him and all his subjects were completely overwhelmed by the signs and wonders You performed. In their arrogance, they opposed Your people, our ancestors. So You opened the sea, and Your people walked through the water on dry ground, and no one has forgotten the name of the One who did it to this day. But the Egyptians pursued our ancestors into the sea, You threw those running after our ancestors into the depths of the sea, like a heavy rock hurled into water.
And thou partedest the sea before them, and they passed through the midst of the sea in the dry place; and thou castedest down the pursuers of them into the depth, as a stone in strong waters. (And thou partedest the Red Sea before them, and they passed through the middle of it on dry land; and thou threwest down their pursuers into the depths, like a stone thrown into mighty waters.)
