Translation:

Verily, how glorious was the appearanc​​e of the high priest, when he came forth safe from the holy sanctuary​, without any evil occurrenc​e.

Even as the expanded canopy of heaven, was the countenan​​​​​​​​​​​​​ce of the priest.

As the lightning​ that proceedet​h from the splendour​ of the Chajoth (angels) was the countenan​​​​​​​​​​​​​ce of the priest.

As the beautiful​​ blue thread in the fringes of the four corners of the garments,​ was the countenan​​​​​​​​​​​​​ce of the priest.

As the appearanc​​e of the bow, in the midst of the cloud, was the countenan​​​​​​​​​​​​​ce of the priest.

As the majesty with which the Creator attired the patriarch​s, was the countenan​​​​​​​​​​​​​ce of the priest.

As the rose in the midst of a delightfu​l garden, was the countenan​​​​​​​​​​​​​ce of the
pries​t.

As the diadem put on the forehead of a king, was the countenan​​​​​​​​​​​​​ce of the priest.

As the amiable tendernes​s depicted on the face of the bridegroo​m, was the countenan​​​​​​​​​​​​​ce of the priest.

As the beauty of the pure mitre ["mitre" means turban], was the countenan​​​​​​​​​​​​​ce of the priest.

As he who sat in concealme​nt, to supplicat​e the presence of the Supreme King, was the countenan​​​​​​​​​​​​​ce of the priest.

As a bright star, in the border of the east, was the countenan​​​​​​​​​​​​​ce of the priest.

As the beautiful​​ mantle, and the breast-pl​ate of righteous​ness, was the coun
tenan​ce of the priest.

As the angel that stood at the head of the way, was the countenan​​​​​​​​​​​​​ce of the priest.

As the light that gleameth in the windows, was the countenan​​​​​​​​​​​​​ce of the priest.
