1 [Alleluia.] At the going forth of Israel from Egypt, of the house of Jacob from a barbarous people, 2 Judea became his sanctuary, [and] Israel his dominion. 3 The sea saw and fled: Jordan was turned back. 4 The mountains skipped like rams, and the hills like lambs. 5 What [ailed] thee, O sea, that thou fleddest? and thou Jordan, that thou wast turned back? 6 [Ye] mountains, that ye skipped like rams, and [ye] hills, like lambs? 7 The earth trembled at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob; 8 who turned the rock into pools of water, and the flint into fountains of water. 9 Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to thy name give glory, because of thy mercy and thy truth; 10 lest at any time the nations should say, Where is their God? 11 But our God has done in heaven and on earth, whatsoever he has pleased. 12 The idols of the nations are silver and gold, the works of men's hands. 13 They have a mouth, but they cannot speak; they have eyes, but they cannot see: 14 they have ears, but they cannot hear; they have noses, but they cannot smell; 15 they have hands, but they cannot handle; they have feet, but they cannot walk: they cannot speak through their throat. 16 Let those that make them become like to them, and all who trust in them. 17 The house of Israel trusts in the Lord: he is their helper and defender. 18 The house of Aaron trusts in the Lord: he is their helper and defender. 19 They that fear the Lord trust in the Lord: he is their helper and defender. 20 The Lord has remembered us, and blessed us: he has blessed the house of Israel, he has blessed the house of Aaron. 21 He has blessed them that fear the Lord, both small and great. 22 The Lord add [blessings] to you and to your children. 23 Blessed are ye of the Lord, who made the heaven and the earth. 24 The heaven of heavens [belongs] to the Lord: but he has given the earth to the sons of men. 25 The dead shall not praise thee, O Lord, nor any that go down to Hades. 26 But we, the living, will bless the Lord, from henceforth and for ever.
᾿Αλληλούϊα. - ΕΝ ΕΞΟΔῼ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐξ Αἰγύπτου, οἴκου ᾿Ιακὼβ ἐκ λαοῦ βαρβάρου, 2 ἐγενήθη ᾿Ιουδαία ἁγίασμα αὐτοῦ, ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐξουσία αὐτοῦ. 3 ἡ θάλασσα εἶδε καὶ ἔφυγεν, ὁ ᾿Ιορδάνης ἐστράφη εἰς τὰ ὀπίσω· 4 τὰ ὄρη ἐσκίρτησαν ὡσεὶ κριοὶ καὶ οἱ βουνοὶ ὡς ἀρνία προβάτων. 5 τί σοί ἐστι, θάλασσα, ὅτι ἔφυγες, καὶ σύ, ᾿Ιορδάνη, ὅτι ἐστράφης εἰς τὰ ὀπίσω; 6 τὰ ὄρη, ὅτι ἐσκιρτήσατε ὡσεὶ κριοί, καὶ οἱ βουνοὶ ὡς ἀρνία προβάτων; 7 ἀπὸ προσώπου Κυρίου ἐσαλεύθη ἡ γῆ, ἀπὸ προσώπου τοῦ Θεοῦ ᾿Ιακὼβ 8 τοῦ στρέψαντος τὴν πέτραν εἰς λίμνας ὑδάτων καὶ τὴν ἀκρότομον εἰς πηγὰς ὑδάτων. 9 μὴ ἡμῖν, Κύριε, μὴ ἡμῖν, ἀλλ᾿ ἢ τῷ ὀνόματί σου δὸς δόξαν, ἐπὶ τῷ ἐλέει σου καὶ τῇ ἀληθείᾳ σου, 10 μήποτε εἴπωσι τὰ ἔθνη· ποῦ ἐστιν ὁ Θεὸς αὐτῶν; 11 ὁ δὲ Θεὸς ἡμῶν ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ καὶ ἐν τῇ γῇ πάντα, ὅσα ἠθέλησεν, ἐποίησε. 12 τὰ εἴδωλα τῶν ἐθνῶν, ἀργύριον καὶ χρυσίον, ἔργα χειρῶν ἀνθρώπων· 13 στόμα ἔχουσι, καὶ οὐ λαλήσουσιν, ὀφθαλμοὺς ἔχουσι, καὶ οὐκ ὄψονται, 14 ὦτα ἔχουσι, καὶ οὐκ ἀκούσονται, ρῖνας ἔχουσι, καὶ οὐκ ὀσφρανθήσονται, 15 χεῖρας ἔχουσι, καὶ οὐ ψηλαφήσουσι, πόδας ἔχουσι καὶ οὐ περιπατήσουσιν, οὐ φωνήσουσιν ἐν τῷ λάρυγγι αὐτῶν. 16 ὅμοιοι αὐτοῖς γένοιντο οἱ ποιοῦντες αὐτὰ καὶ πάντες οἱ πεποιθότες ἐπ᾿ αὐτοῖς. 17 οἶκος ᾿Ισραὴλ ἤλπισεν ἐπὶ Κύριον· βοηθὸς καὶ ὑπερασπιστὴς αὐτῶν ἐστιν. 18 οἶκος ᾿Ααρὼν ἤλπισεν ἐπὶ Κύριον· βοηθὸς καὶ ὑπερασπιστὴς αὐτῶν ἐστιν. 19 οἱ φοβούμενοι τὸν Κύριον ἤλπισαν ἐπὶ Κύριον· βοηθὸς καὶ ὑπερασπιστὴς αὐτῶν ἐστιν. 20 Κύριος μνησθεὶς ἡμῶν εὐλόγησεν ἡμᾶς, εὐλόγησε τὸν οἶκον ᾿Ισραήλ, εὐλόγησε τὸν οἶκον ᾿Ααρών, 21 εὐλόγησε τοὺς φοβουμένους τὸν Κύριον, τοὺς μικροὺς μετὰ τῶν μεγάλων. 22 προσθείη Κύριος ἐφ᾿ ὑμᾶς, ἐφ᾿ ὑμᾶς καὶ ἐπὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς ὑμῶν. 23 εὐλογημένοι ὑμεῖς τῷ Κυρίῳ τῷ ποιήσαντι τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ τὴν γῆν. 24 ὁ οὐρανὸς τοῦ οὐρανοῦ τῷ Κυρίῳ, τὴν δὲ γῆν ἔδωκε τοῖς υἱοῖς τῶν ἀνθρώπων. 25 οὐχ οἱ νεκροὶ αἰνέσουσί σε, Κύριε, οὐδὲ πάντες οἱ καταβαίνοντες εἰς ᾅδου, 26 ἀλλ᾿ ἡμεῖς οἱ ζῶντες εὐλογήσομεν τὸν Κύριον, ἀπὸ τοῦ νῦν, καὶ ἕως τοῦ αἰῶνος.
