Alae! Ered en Echoriath, ered e·mbar nín!
Behold! The mountains of Echoriath, the mountains of my home!
The sense is given in note, except alae where the present translation is hypothesised from the context - it is in any case an interjection, in which expressing emotion is more important than meaning.
