Chapter 150

1Hallelujah! Praise God in His holy place, praise Him in the firmament of His might.   אהַ֥לְלוּיָ֨הּ | הַֽלְלוּ־אֵ֥ל בְּקָדְשׁ֑וֹ הַֽ֜לְ֗לוּהוּ בִּרְקִ֥יעַ עֻזּֽוֹ:
2Praise Him with His mighty deeds, praise Him as befits His superb greatness.   בהַֽלְלוּהוּ בִּגְבֽוּרֹתָ֑יו הַֽ֜לְל֗וּהוּ כְּרֹ֣ב גֻּדְלֽוֹ:
3Praise Him with a shofar blast, praise Him with psaltery and lyre.   גהַֽלְלוּהוּ בְּתֵ֣קַע שׁוֹפָ֑ר הַֽ֜לְל֗וּהוּ בְּנֵ֣בֶל וְכִנּֽוֹר:
4Praise Him with timbres and dance, praise Him with stringed instruments and flute.   דהַֽלְלוּהוּ בְתֹ֣ף וּמָח֑וֹל הַֽ֜לְל֗וּהוּ בְּמִנִּ֥ים וְעֻגָֽב:
with stringed instrument and flute: Heb. במנים ועגב. They are kinds of musical instruments.  
5Praise Him with resounding cymbals, praise Him with resonant cymbals.   ההַֽלְלוּהוּ בְּצִֽלְצְלֵי־שָׁ֑מַע הַֽ֜לְל֗וּהוּ בְּצִלְצְלֵ֥י תְרוּעָֽה:
with resounding cymbals: Heb. בצלצלי שמע, cymbals that let a sound be heard. שָׁמַע is a noun, like שֶׁמַע, with a “segol,” but because of the “ethnactha” [which denotes a pause], it is vowelized with a long “kamatz,” and therefore, its accent is above, under the “shin.”  
6Let every soul praise God. Hallelujah!   וכֹּ֣ל הַ֖נְּשָׁמָה תְּהַלֵּ֥ל יָ֜֗הּ הַֽלְלוּיָֽהּ:
