EXPLANATION OF THE GLOSSING SYSTEM
(to understand how I describe the signs in this translation).
Mi chamocha ba-eilim Adonai?
Who is like You, Eternal One, among the gods that are worshipped?
LORD WHO LIKE YOU? NONE OTHER GOD WORTH WORSHIP.
Mi kamocha ne-edar bakodesh,
Who is like You, majestic in holiness,
LORD WHO LIKE YOU? YOU HOLY* ADVANCED.
Nora t-hilot, ose fele.
awesome in splendor, doing wonders?
YOUR MIRACLE NAME~SHINY, WE AWED.
Malchutecha ra-u vanecha bokei-a yam lifnei Moshe
In their escape from the sea, Your children saw Your sovereign might displayed.
JEWISH PEOPLE THEY-rt CONFRONT RED SEA, YOU SEPARATE++-away. YOUR POWER, CLEAR. THEY-rt SHOCKED, SAY (role play)
Ze eili anu veamru, Adonai yimloch leolam va-ed!
"This is my God!" they cried. "The Eternal will reign for ever and ever!"
HE, OUR GOD. ALLOW LORD CONTINUE CONTROL IDEA~LIKE KING FOREVER.
Notes: YOU - Underlined words are honorific indices ("indexes"), using the FT of the upturned palm to indicate who is being honored.
WORSHIP - NDH is clasped over DH [S] and hands circle perpendicular to the chest. For an animated gif of this sign, see Animated dictionary of religious signs - Deaf Missions: Worship.
HOLY - H-CLEAN. For a QuickTime file of this sign, see ASL Pro: Holy - 1.
ADVANCED - (2h)[B^], POs ><, FOs up, move upwards arcing towards the signer. For an animated gif of this sign, see Animated dictionary of religious signs - Deaf Missions: Exalted.
MIRACLE - WONDERFUL(1x) WORK. For an animated gif of this sign, see Animated dictionary of religious signs - Deaf Missions: Miracle.
NAME~SHINY - Starts like the sign NAME, the NDH is left in place while the DH touches it with the [open 8] (as in the sign FEEL), then moves upwards while twisting the wrist.
AWED - (2h)[S], POs ><, FOs up are held at eyes with awed facial expression and the hands open and then close.
IDEA~LIKE - A blending where IDEA has a [Y] instead of an [I] in anticipation of LIKE which is signed smoothly right afterwards.
