דַּם עֲנָבָיו הִשְׁקָֽנוּ
הָאָדֹם הָאָדֹם הִשְׁכִּירָֽנוּ
כִּי לְעוֹלָם חַסְדּוֹ עִמָּֽנוּ׃
נָגִיל…
It it not so? In love, it chose us —
the blood of grapes — gave us drink.
The red red stuff intoxicated us,
for forever is its kindness with us!
Let us cheer…

Notes
1A pun on the name of Haman’s son Parshandata as parshan (interpreter) data (the law). Rashi hinself is referred to as ”a parshandata” in some texts of the time.
2A pun on the Foundation Stone, which is homophonous in Hebrew.
3A measurement of wine, around six litres (1.6 gallons).
4A pun on Isaac and mount Moriah.
5Note: the Hebrew says dvash, “honey.” This might refer to sweet wine, wine with honey added, or some other fermented honey product. I’ve chosen to consistently translate it as “mead” to preserve the implications of ”honey” and ”alcoholic.”
