Prayer When Putting on a Tallit עטיפת טלית

Wearing a Tallit is a personal choice for both men and women over the age of 13. For those who choose to wear a tallit, first inspect the tzitzis on the corners to make sure no harm has been done to them since their last usage, then fold the tallit. While holding it in position to wrap around yourself, recite the following blessing.

Blessed are You, Adonai, our God, Sovereign of the universe who hallows us with Your mitzvot, and teaches us to wrap ourselves in the fringed tallit.

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶֽלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, אֲשֶׁר קִדְּשָֽׁנוּ בְּמִצְוֹתָיו, וְצִוָּֽנוּ להִתְעַטֵף בַצִיצִית.

Wrap yourself in the tallit.

Shacharit Morning Prayers

Mah Tovu מה טבו

“Mah Tovu” is a song meant to express your gratitude for being able to join in prayer. It is a sign of reverence and appreciation for the house of prayer.

How good are your tents, O Jacob, your dwelling places, O Israel! As for me, in the abundance of Your love, I will enter Your house: I will worship toward Your holy temple out of reverence for You. Adonai, I love residing in Your house, and the place where Your glory dwells. I will worship and bow down: I will bend my knee before Adonai, my Maker. May my prayer to You, Adonai, be acceptable: God, in the abundance of Your lovingkindness, answer me with the truth of Your salvation.

מַה טּֽבוּ אֹהָלֶיךָ יַעֲקֹב, מִשְׁכְּנֹתֶיךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל. וַאֲנִי בְּרֹב חַסְדְּךָ אָבוֹא בֵיתֶךָ, אֶשְׁתַּחֲוֶה אֶל הֵיכַל קָדְשְׁךָ בְּיִרְאָתֶךָ. יְיָ אָהַבְתִּי מְעוֹן בֵּיתֶךָ, וּמְקוֹם מִשְׁכַּן כְּבוֹדֶךָ. וַאֲנִי אֶשְׁתַּחֲוֶה וְאֶכְרָעָה, אֶבְרְכָה לִפְנֵי יְיָ עֹשִׂי. וַאֲנִי תְפִלָּתִי לְךָ יְיָ, עֵת רָצוֹן, אֱלֹהִים בְּרָב חַסְדֶּךָ, עֲנֵֽנִי בֶּאֱמֶת יִשְׁעֶךָ.

Adon Olam אדון עולם

You are the Eternal God who ruled before the creation. At the time Your will directly determined what occurred, You were already ruling.

אֲדוֹן עוֹלָם אֲשֶׁר מָלַךְ, בְּטֶֽרֶם כָּל יְצִיר נִבְרָא. לְעֵת נַעֲשָׂה בְחֶפְצוֹ כֹּל, אֲזַי מֶלֶךְ שְׁמוֹ נִקְרָא.

And when all else has failed, You will still reign majestically. You were, You are, You will be in glory.

וְאַחֲרֵי כִּכְלוֹת הַכֹּל, לְבַדּוֹ יִמְלוֹךְ נוֹרָא. וְהוּא הָיָה, וְהוּא הֹוֶה, וְהוּא יִהְיֶה, בְּתִפְאָרָה.

You are only One. You do not rely upon or compare with any other. You exist without beginning or end. You know power that cannot be seen or experienced elsewhere.

וְהוּא אֶחָד וְאֵין שֵׁנִי, לְהַמְשִׁיל לוֹ לְהַחְבִּירָה. בְּלִי רֵאשִׁית בְּלִי תַכְלִית,
וְלוֹ הָעֹז וְהַמִּשְׂרָה.

You are my God. You are my Redeemer; my Rock when I am distressed; my confidence; my protection; my aide when I call on You.

וְהוּא אֵלִי וְחַי גֹּאֲלִי, וְצוּר חֶבְלִי בְּעֵת צָרָה. וְהוּא נִסִּי וּמָנוֹס לִי, מְנָת כּוֹסִי בְּיוֹם אֶקְרָא.

I place my soul in Your hands and trust You with it night and day. I also entrust You with my body. When I have Adonai, I shall never fear.

בְּיָדוֹ אַפְקִיד רוּחִי, בְּעֵת אִישַׁן וְאָעִירָה. וְעִם רוּחִי גְּוִיָּתִי, יְיָ לִי וְלֹא אִירָא.

Yigdal יגדל

We praise, exalt, and adore the living God! God was, God is, God will be evermore! God is unique in the unity of One: eternal, inconceivable is God.

יִגְדַּל אֱלֹהִים חַי וְיִשְׁתַּבַּח, נִמְצָא, וְאֵין עֵת אֶל מְצִיאוּתוֹ. אֶחָד וְאֵין יָחִיד כְּיִחוּדוֹ, נֶעְלָם, וְגַם אֵין סוֹף לְאַחְדּוּתוֹ.

No form, or shape even compares with the incorporeal One, blessed God. God was at creation. The Eternal One saw no beginning in heaven, or earth, but instead knows only a timeless existence.

אֵין לוֹ דְמוּת הַגּוּף וְאֵינוֹ גוּף, לֹא נַעֲרוֹךְ אֵלָיו קְדֻשָּׁתוֹ. קַדְמוֹן לְכָל דָּבָר אֲשָׁר נִבְרָא, רִאשׁוֹן וְאֵין רֵאשִׁית לְרֵאשִׁיתוֹ.

God is known as Sovereign of the Universe, teaching of Holy power to the beings crafted by the Holy One personally. God gave the gift of prophecy to those who experience God’s glory.

הִנּוֹ אֲדוֹן עוֹלָם לְכָל נוֹצָר, יוֹרֶה גְדֻלָּתוֹ וּמַלְכוּתוֹ. שֶֽׁפַע נְבוּאָתוֹ נְתָנוֹ, אֶל אַנְשֵׁי סְגֻלָּתוֹ וְתִפְאַרְתּוֹ.

No prophet ever yet has filled the place of Moses. Through him (the faithful in God’s house) God gave the law of truth to Israel.

לֹא קָם בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל כְּמֹשֶׁה עוֹד, נָבִיא וּמַבִּיט אֶת תְּמוּנָתוֹ. תּוֹרַת אֱמֶת נָתַן לְעַמּוֹ אֵל, עַל יַד נְבִיאוֹ נֶאֱמַן בֵּיתוֹ.

This Judge will not alter and be everlasting. God knows and heeds the secret thoughts of humanity: God saw the end before there even was a beginning. With love and grace does God bless the righteous; God treats the wicked with justice and mercy.

לֹא יַחֲלִיף הָאֵל וְלֹא יָמִיר דָּתוֹ, לְעוֹלָמִים, לְזוּלָתוֹ. צוֹפֶה וְיוֹדֵעַ סְתָרֵֽינוּ, מַבִּיט לְסוֹף דָּבָר בְּקַדְמָתוֹ. גּוֹמֵל לְאִישׁ חֶסֶד כְּמִפְעָלוֹ, נוֹתֵן לְרָשָׁע רָע כְּרִשְׁעָתוֹ.

At the end, God will redeem us. God will restore us to life. Praised by God’s glorious Name forever!

יִשְׁלַח לְקֵץ הַיָּמִין מְשִׁיחֵֽנוּ, לִפְדּוֹת מְחַכֵּי קֵץ יְשׁוּעָתוֹ. מֵתִים יְחַיֶּה אֵל בְּרֹב חַסְדּוֹ, בָּרוּךְ עֲדֵי עַד שֵׁם תְּהִלָּתוֹ.

Blessing Upon Arising אשר יצר

Blessed are You, Adonai our God, Ruler of the universe, who has formed humankind in wisdom and created in humankind many passages and vessels. It is well known before Your glorious throne, that if but one of these be opened, or one of those be closed, it would be impossible to exist and stand before You. Blessed are You, Adonai, who is the wondrous healer of all flesh.

These are the deeds for which there is no prescribed measure: leaving crops at the corner of a field for the poor, offering first fruits as a gift to the Temple, bringing special offerings to the Temple on the three Festivals, doing deeds of lovingkindness, and studying Torah.

אֵֽלּוּ דְבָרִים שֶׁאֵין לָהֶם שִׁעוּר: הַפֵּאָה וְהַבִּכּוּרִים וְהָרַאְיוֹן וּגְמִילוּת חֲסָדִים וְתַלְמוּד תּוֹרָה.

Eilu D'varim אלו דברים

These are the commandments which have no fixed measure: the corners of the field, the first fruits, the offerings brought on appearing before God at the three festivals, the practice of charity and the study of the Torah.—these are the things, of which a human enjoys the fruits in this world, while the stock remains for the world to come: viz., honoring father and mother, deeds of lovingkindness, timely attendance at the house of study morning and evening, hospitality to wayfarers, visiting the sick, dowering the bride, attending the dead to the grave, devotion in prayer, and making peace between one person and another; but the study of the Torah leads to them all.

אֵלּוּ דְבָרִים שֶׁאָדָם אוֹכֵל פֵּרוֹתֵיהֶם בָּעוֹלָם הַזֶּה וְהַקֶּרֶן קַיֶּמֶת לוֹ לָעוֹלָם הַבָּא, וְאֵלּוּ הֵן: כִּבּוּד אָב וָאֵם, וּגְמִילוּת חֲסָדִים, וְהַשְׁכָּמַת בֵּית הַמִּדְרָשׁ שַׁחֲרִית וְעַרְבִית, וְהַכְנָסַת אוֹרְחִים, וּבִקּוּר חוֹלִים, וְהַכְנָסַת כַּלָּה, וּלְוָיַת הַמֵּת, וְעִיוּן תְּפִלָּה, וַהֲבָאַת שָׁלוֹם בֵּין אָדָם לַחֲבֵרוֹ, וְתַלְמוּד תּוֹרָה כְּנֶגֶד כֻּלָּם.

Elohai Neshama אלהי נשמה

O my God, the soul which You gave me is pure; You did create it, You did form it, You did breathe it into me. You preserve it within me, and You will take it from me, but will restore it to me hereafter. So long as the soul is within me, I will give thanks to You, Adonai, my God and God of my ancestors, Sovereign of all works, God of all souls! Blessed are You, Adonai, who restores souls unto the dead.

אֱלֹהַי, נְשָׁמָה שֶׁנָּתַתָּ בִּי טְהוֹרָה הִיא. אַתָּה בְרָאתָהּ, אַתָּה יְצַרְתָּהּ, אַתָּה נְפַחְתָּהּ בִּי, וְאַתָּה מְשַׁמְּרָהּ בְּקִרְבִּי, וְאַתָּה עָתִיד לִטְּלָהּ מִמֶּנִּי, וּלְהַחֲזִירָהּ בִּי לֶעָתִיד לָבוֹא. כָּל זְמַן שֶׁהַנְּשָׁמָה בְקִרְבִּי, מוֹדֶה אֲנִי לְפָנֶיךָ, יְיָ אֱלֹהַי וֵאלֹהֵי אֲבוֹתַי, רִבּוֹן כָּל הַמַּעֲשִׂים, אֲדוֹן כָּל הַנְּשָׁמוֹת. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, הַמַּחֲזִיר נְשָׁמוֹת לִפְגָרִים מֵתִים.

V'Hi Ratzon ויהי רצון

And may it be Your will, Adonai our God and God of our ancestors, to accustom us to walk in Your Torah, and to make us cleave to Your commandments. O lead us not into sin, or transgression, iniquity, temptation, or disgrace; let not the evil inclination have sway over us; keep us far from a bad person and a bad companion: make us cleave to the good inclination and to good works: subdue our inclination so that it may submit itself to You: and let us obtain this day, and every day, grace, favor, and mercy in Your eyes, and in the eyes of all who behold us; and bestow lovingkindness upon us. Blessed are You, Adonai, who bestows lovingkindnesses upon Your people Israel.

וִיהִי רָצוֹן מִלְּפָנֶיךָ, יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ וֵאלֹהֵי אֲבוֹתֵינוּ, שֶׁתַּרְגִּילֵנוּ בְּתוֹרָתֶךָ, וְדַבְּקֵנוּ בְּמִצְוֹתֶיךָ, וְאַל תְּבִיאֵנוּ לֹא לִידֵי חֵטְא, וְלֹא לִידֵי עֲבֵרָה וְעָוֹן, וְלֹא לִידֵי נִסָּיוֹן, וְלֹא לִידֵי בִזָּיוֹן, וְאַל תַּשְׁלֶט בָּנוּ יֵֽצֶר הָרָע. וְהַרְחִיקֵנוּ מֵאָדָם רָע וּמֵחָבֵר רָע. וְדַבְּקֵנוּ בְּיֵצֶר הַטּוֹב וּבְמַעֲשִׂים טוֹבִים, וְכוֹף אֶת יִצְרֵנוּ לְהִשְׁתַּעְבֶּד לָךְ. וּתְנֵנוּ הַיּוֹם, וּבְכָל יוֹם, לְחֵן וּלְחֶסֶד וּלְרַחֲמִים בְּעֵינֶיךָ, וּבְעֵינֵי כָל רוֹאֵינוּ, וְתִגְמְלֵנוּ חֲסָדִים טוֹבִים. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, גּוֹמֵל חֲסָדִים טוֹבִים לְעַמּוֹ יִשְׂרָאֵל.

V'Hi Ratzon Milfanecha Sheh'tatzileini ויהי רצון מלפניך שתצילני

May it be Your will, Adonai my God and God of my anscestors, to deliver me this day, and every day, from arrogant people and from arrogance, from a bad person, from a bad companion and from a bad neighbor, and from any mishap or evil hindrance; from a hard judgment, and from a ruthless opponent, be they members of the covenant or not.

יְהִי רָצוֹן מִלְּפָנֶיךָ, יְיָ אֱלֹהַי וֵאלֹהֵי אֲבוֹתַי, שֶׁתַּצִּילֵנִי הַיּוֹם וּבְכָל יוֹם מֵעַזֵּי פָנִים וּמֵעַזּוּת פָּנִים, מֵאָדָם רָע, וּמֵחָבֵר רָע, וּמִשָּׁכֵן רָע, וּמִפֶּֽגַע רָע, וּמִשָּׂטָן הַמַּשְׁחִית, מִדִּין קָשֶׁה, וּמִבַּֽעַל דִּין קָשֶׁה, בֵּין שֶׁהוּא בֶן בְּרִית, וּבֵין שֶׁאֵינוֹ בֶן בְּרִית.

The Merit of the Patriarchs עקדה

After these events, God tested Abraham and said to him: “Abraham.” He said: “Here I am.” God said: “Take your son, your only one whom you love, Issac and go to the land of Moriah. There raise him up as a sacrifice upon one of the mountains which I will tell you." Abraham rose early in the morning, saddled his donkey and took his two young servants with him and Issac, his son. He split the wood for the offering and rose to go to the place which God would tell him.
On the third day, Abraham raised his eyes and saw the place from afar. Abraham said to his young servants: “Stay here with the donkey and I and the boy shall go that way. There we will pray [bow down] and then return to you.” Abraham took the wood for the offering and placed it upon Issac, his son, while he took the fire [light, flame or firestone] and the knife and the two of them walked together. Issac said to Abraham, his father–he said, “My father.” He said: “Here I am, my son.” He said: “Here is the fire and the wood but where is the sheep for offering?” Abraham said: “God will see to the sheep, my son.” And the two of them walked together.
They came to the place which God told him. Abraham built there an altar and arranged the wood and bound Issac his son and placed him at the altar upon the wood. Abraham sent forth his hand and took the knife to butcher his son. The angel of God called to him from heaven saying: “Abraham, Abraham!” He said: “Here I am.” The angel said: “Do not send forth your hand to the boy and don’t do a thing to him because now I know that you are a God-fearing man since you have not withheld your son, your only one from Me.” Abraham raised his eyes and saw, behold another ram trapped by the horns in the thicket. Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up instead of his son. Abraham called the name of the place, God Will See, of which it is said today, On God’s Mountain It Will Be Seen [a vision].
The angel of God called out to Abraham a second time from the heavens. He said: “On myself I swear according to God’s word that because you did this thing and did not withhold your son, your only one; I will bless you and multiply your seed as the stars in the heavens and like sand on the shore of the sea and your seed will inherit the gates of your enemies. All the nations of the earth will be blessed by your descendants as a result of your hearing my voice. Abraham returned to the young servants and they arose and went together to Be’er Sheva and Abraham remained in Be’er Sheva.

Ribono Shel Olam רבונו של אולם

This paragraph is omitted on Shabbat and festivals.

Sovereign of the universe! May it be your will, Adonai, our God, and the God of our ancestors, that you remember for our sake the covenant of our ancestors. Just as Abraham our forefather suppressed his mercy for his only some and wished to slaughter him in order to do your will, so may your mercy suppress your anger from upon us and may your mercy overwhelm your attributes. May you overstep with us the line of your law and deal with us, Adonai, our God, with the attribute of kindness and the attribute of mercy. in your great goodness may you turn aside your burning wrath from your people, your city, your land, and your heritage. Fulfill for us, Adonai, our God, the word you pledged through Moses, your servant, as it is said: "I shall remember my covenant with Jacob; also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham shall I remember, and the land shall I remember."

רִבּוֹנוֹ שֶׁל עוֹלָם, יְהִי רָצוֹן מִלְּפָנֶיךָ, יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ וֵאלֹהֵי אֲבוֹתֵינוּ, שֶׁתִּזְכָּר לנוּ בְּרִית אֲבוֹתֵינוּ. כְּמוֹ שֶׁכָּבַשׁ אַבְרָהָם אָבִינוּ אֶת רַחֲמָיו מִבֶּן יְחִידוֹ, וְרָצָה לִשְׁחוֹט אוֹתוֹ כְּדֵי לַעֲשׂוֹת רְצוֹנֶךָ, כֵּן יִכְבְּשׁוּ רַחֲמֶיךָ אֶת כַּעַסְךָ מֵעָלֵינוּ, וְיָגֽלּוּ רַחֲמֶיךָ עַל מִדּוֹתֶיךָ, וְתִכָּנֵס אִתָּנוּ לִפְנִים מִשּׁוּרַת דִּינֶךָ, וְתִתְנַהֵג עִמָּנוּ, יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ, בְּמִדַּת הַחֶסֶד וּבְמִדַּת הָרַחֲמִים. וּבְטוּבְךָ הַגָּדוֹל, יָשׁוּב חֲרוֹן אַפְּךָ מֵעַמְּךָ וּמֵעִירְךָ וּמֵאַרְצְךָ וּמִנַּחֲלָתֶךָ. וְקַיֶּם לָנוּ, יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ, אֶת הַדָּבָר שֶׁהִבְטַחְתָּֽנוּ עַל יְדֵי מֹשֶׁה עַבְדֶּךָ, כָּאָמוּר: וְזָכַרְתִּי אֶת בְּרִיתִי יַעֲקוֹב, וְאַף אֶת בְּרִיתִי יִצְחָק, וְאַף אֶת בְּרִיתִי אַבְרָהָם אֶזְכֹּר, וְהָאָֽרֶץ אֶזְכֹּר.

L'olam Y'hei Adam לעולם יהא אדם

At all times let a person revere God in private as in public, acknowledge the truth, and speak the truth in his or her heart; and let that person rise early and say: Sovereign of all worlds! [Daniel 9,18] Not because of our righteous acts do we lay our supplications before you, but because of your abundant mercies. What are we? What is our life? What is our piety? What is our righteousness? What our helpfulness? What our strength? What our might? What shall we say before you, Adonai our God and God of our ancestors? Are not all the mighty people as nothing before you, the people of renown as though they had not been, the wise as if without knowledge, and the persons of understanding as if without discernment? For most of their works are void, and the days of their lives are vanity before you, and the pre-eminence of humans over the beast is for nothing: for all is vanity.

Nevertheless we are your people, the children of your covenant, the children of Abraham, your friend, to whom you did swear on Mount Moriah; the seed of Isaac, his only son, who was bound upon the altar; the congregation of Jacob, your firstborn son, whose name you did call Israel and Jeshurun by reason of the love wherewith you did love him, and the joy wherewith you did rejoice in him.

It is therefore, our duty to thank, praise and glorify you, to bless, to sanctify and to offer praise and thanksgiving unto your Name. Happy are we! how goodly is our portion, how pleasant our lot, and how beautiful our heritage! Happy are we who, early and late, morning and evening, twice every day, declare:

V'Ahavta ואהבת

And you shall love Adonai your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. And these words, which I command you this day, shall be upon your heart: and you shall teach them diligently unto your children, and shalt talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk on the way, and when you lie own, and when you rise up. And you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, and they shall be for frontlets between your eyes. And you shall write them on the door-posts of your house, and upon your gates.

Atah Hu Ad Shelo Nivrah אתה הוא עד שלא נברא

You were the same before the world was created; you have been the same since the world was been created; you are the same in this world, and you will be the same in the world to come. Sanctify your Name upon them that sanctify it, yes, sanctify your Name throughout your world; and through your saving power raise up and uphold our strength. Blessed are you, Adonai, who sanctifies your Name before the whole world.

You are Adonai our God in heaven and on earth, and in the highest heavens. Of a truth you are the first and you are the last, and beside you there is no God. O gather them that hope in you from the four corners of the earth. Let all the inhabitants of the world perceive and know that you are God, you alone, over all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is therein; and which among all the works of your hands, whether among those above or among those beneath, can say unto you, What do you do? Our Parent who is in heaven, deal kindly with us for the sake of your great Name by which we are called; and fulfill unto us, Adonai our God, that which is written, [Zephaniah 3.20] At that time will I bring you in, and at that time will I gather you; for I will make you a name and a praise among all the peoples of the earth, when I bring back your captivity before your eyes, says Adonai.

Vayidaber Adonai El Moshe וידבר יי אל משה

God spoke to Moses saying: Make a laver of copper, and its base of copper, for washing; and place it between the Tent of Appointment and the Altar and put water there. Aaron and his sons are to wash their hands and feet from it. when they arrive at the Tent of Appointment they are to wash with water so that they do not die, or when they approach the Altar to serve, to burn a fire-offering to God. they are to wash their hands and feet so that they do not die; and this shall be an eternal decree for them -- for him and his offspring -- throughout their generations.

וַיְדַבֵּר יְיָ אֶל מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר. וְעָשִׂיתָ כִּיּוֹר נְחֽשֶׁת וְכַנּוֹ נְחֹֽשֶׁת לְרָחְצָה, וְנָתַתָּ אֹתוֹ בֵּין אֽהֶל מוֹעֵד וּבֵין הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, וְנָתַתָּ שָׁמָּה מָיִם. וְרָחֲצוּ אַהֲרֹן וּבָנָיו מִמֶּנּוּ, אֶת יְדֵיהֶם וְאֶת רַגְלֵיהֶם. בְּבֹאָם אֶל אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד יִרְחֲצוּ מַֽיִם וְלֹא יָמֻתוּ, אוֹ בְגִשְׁתָּם אֶל הַמִּזְבֵּחַ לְשָׁרֵת לְהַקְטִיר אִשֶּׁה לַייָ. וְרָחֲצוּ יְדֵיהֶם וְרַגְלֵיהֶם וְלֹא יָמֻתוּ, וְהָיְתָה לָהֶם חָק עוֹלָם, לוֹ וּלְזַרְעוֹ לְדֹרֹתָם.

Vayidaber Adonai...Tzav Et Aharon וידבר יי צו את אהרן

God spoke to Moses saying: Instruct Aaron and his sons saying: This is the teaching of the elevation-offering, it is the elevation-offering that stays on the pyre on the Altar all night until morning, and the fire of the Altar should be kept burning on it. The Priest should don his linen garment, and he is to don linen breeches upon his flesh; he is to puck up the ashes of what the fire consumed of the elevation-offering upon the Altar and place it next to the Altar. Then he should remove his garments and don other garments; then he should remove the ashes to the outside of the camp to a pure place. The fire on the Altar shall be kept burning on it, it may not be extinguished, and the Priest shall burn wood upon it every morning. He is to prepare the elevation-offering upon it and burn upon it the fats of the peace-offerings. A permanent fire should remain burning on the Altar; it may not be extinguished.

וַיְדַבֵּר יְיָ אֶל מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר. צַו אֶת אַהֲרֹן וְאֶת בָּנָיו לֵאמֹר, זֹאת תּוֹרַת הָעֹלָה, הִוא הָעֹלָה עַל מוֹקְדָה עַל הַמִּזְבֵּֽחַ כָּל הַלַּיְלָה עַד הַבֹּקֶר, וְאֵשׁ הַמִּזְבֵּחַ תּֽוּקַד בּוֹ. וְלָבַשׁ הַכֹּהֵן מִדּוֹ בַד, וּמִכְנְסֵי בַד יִלְבַּשׁ עַל בְּשָׂרוֹ, וְהֵרִים אֶת הַדֶּֽשֶׁן אֲשֶׁר תֹּאכַל הָאֵשׁ אֶת הָעֹלָה עַל הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, וְשָׂמוֹ אֵצֶל הַמִּזְבֵּחַ. וּפָשַׁט אֶת בְּגָדָיו, וְלָבַשׁ בְּגָדִים אֲחֵרִים, וְהוֹצִיא אֶת הַדֶּשֶׁן אֶל מִחוּץ לַמַּחֲנֶה, אֶל מָקוֹם טָהוֹר. וְהָאֵשׁ עַל הַמִּזְבֵּחַ תּֽוּקַד בּוֹ, לֹא תִכְבֶּה, וּבִעֵר עָלֶיהָ הַכֹּהֵן עֵצִים בַּבּֽקֶר בַּבֹּקֶר, וְעָרַךְ עָלֶיהָ הָעֹלָה, וְהִקְטִיר עָלֶיהָ חֶלְבֵי הַשְּׁלָמִים. אֵשׁ תָּמִיד תּוּקַד עַל הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, לֹא תִכְבֶּה.

Vayidaber Adonai...T'zav et B'nei Yisrael וידבר יי... צו את בני ישראל

And Adonai spoke unto Moses, saying, Command the children of Israel, and say unto them, My oblation, my food for my offerings made by fire, of a sweet aroma unto me, shall you observe to offer unto me in its due season. And you shall say unto them, This is the offering made by fire which you shall offer unto God; he-lambs of the first year without blemish, two day by day, for a daily burnt offering. The one lamb you shall offer in the morning, and the other lamb you shall offer at evening; and the tenth part of an ephah of fine flour for a meal offering, mingled with the fourth part of an hin of beaten oil. It is a continual burnt offering, which was ordained in mount Sinai for a sweet aroma, an offering made by fire unto God. And the drink offering thereof shall be the fourth part of an hin for the one lamb: in the holy place you shall pour out a drink offering of strong drink unto God. And the other lamb you shall offer at evening: as the meal offering of the morning, and as the drink offering thereof, you shall offer it, an offering made by fire, of a sweet aroma unto God.

V'shachat Oto ושחט אתו

He is to slaughter it on the north side of the Altar before God, and Aaron's sons the Priests are to dash its blood upon the Altar all around.

It is you, Adonai, our God, before whom our ancestors burned the incense-spices in the time when the Holy Temple stood, as you commanded them through Moses your prophet, as it is written in your Torah:

וְשָׁחַט אֹתוֹ עַל יֶרֶךְ הַמִּזְבּֽחַ צָפֽנָה לִפְנֵי יְיָ, וְזָרְקוּ בְּנֵי אַהֲרֹן הַכֹּהֲנִים אֶת דָּמוֹ עַל הַמִּזְבּֽחַ סָבִיב.

Vayomer Adonai El Moshe Kach ויאמר יי אל משה קח

God said to Moses: Take yourself spices -- Stacte, onycha, and galbanum -- spices and pure frankincense; they are all to be of equal weight. You are to make it into incense, a spice-compound, the handiwork of an expert spice-compounder, thoroughly mixed, pure and holy. You are to grind some of it finely and place some of it before the Testimony in the Tent of Appointment, where I shall designate a time to meet you; it shall be a holy of holies for you.
It is also written: Aaron shall burn upon it the incense-spices every morning; when he cleanse the lamps he is to bun it. And when Aaron ignites the lamps in the afternoon, he is to burn it, as a continual incense before God throughout your generations.

וַיֹּֽאמֶר יְיָ אֶל מֹשֶׁה, קַח לְךָ סַמִּים, נָטָף וּשְׁחֵלֶת וְחֶלְבְּנָה, סַמִּים וּלְבֹנָה זַכָּה, בַּד בְּבַד יִהְיֶה. וְעָשִׂיתָ אֹתָהּ קְטֹֽרֶת, רֹֽקַח, מַעֲשֵׂה רוֹקֵחַ, מְמֻלָּח, טָהוֹר, קֹֽדֶשׁ. וְשָׁחַקְתָּ מִמֶּנָּה הָדֵק, וְנָתַתָּה מִמֶּנָּה לִפְנֵי הָעֵדֻת בְּאֹֽהֶל מוֹעֵד אֲשֶׁר אִוָּעֵד לְךָ שָׁמָּה, קֹֽדֶשׁ קָדָשִׁים תִּהְיֶה לָכֶם. וְנֶאֱמַר: וְהִקְטִיר עָלָיו אַהֲרֹן קְטֹֽרֶת סַמִּים, בַּבֹּֽקֶר בַּבֹּֽקֶר בְּהֵיטִיבוֹ אֶת הַנֵּרֹת יַקְטִירֶנָּה. וּבְהַעֲלֹת אַהֲרֹן אֶת הַנֵּרֹת בֵּין הָעַרְבַּֽיִם יַקְטִירֶנָּה, קְטֹֽרֶת תָּמִיד לִפְנֵי יְיָ לְדֹרֹתֵיכֶם.

Talmud Torah on Korbanot (Sacrifices)

The rabbis taught: How is the incense mixture formulated? Three hundred sixty-eight maneh were in it: maneh for each day, half in the morning and half in the afternoon; and three extra maneh, from which the Kohen Gadol would bring both his handfuls on Yom Kippur. He would return them to the mortar on the day before Yom Kippur, and grind them exceptionally fine. The compound forming the incense consisted of balm, mocha, laudanum and frankincense, in quantities weighing seventy manehs each; of myrrh, cassia, spikenard and saffron, each sixteen manehs by weight; of costus twelve, of aromatic bark three, and of cinnamon nine manehs; of lye obtained from a species of leek, nine kabs; of Cyprus wine three seahs and three kabs: though, if Cyprus wine was not procurable, old white wine might be used: of salt of Sodom the fourth part of a kab, and of the herb Maaleh Ashan a minute quantity. R. Nathan says, a minute quantity was also required of the odoriferous herb Cippath, that grew on the banks of the Jordan; if, however, one added honey to the mixture, he rendered the incense unfit for sacred use, while he who, in preparing it, omitted one of its necessary ingredients, was liable to the penalty of death.

Rabban Simeon, son of Gamaliel, says the balm is a resin that exudes from the wood of the balsam tree. The lye obtained from a species of leek was rubbed over the onycha to improve it, while the Cyprus wine was used to steep it in, so that its odor might be more pungent. Even though urine is more suitable for that, nevertheless, they do not bring urine into the Temple out of respect.

It is taught, Rabbi Nassan says: As one would grind [the incense] another would say, 'Grind thoroughly, thoroughly grind,' because the sound is beneficial for the spices. If one mixed it in half-quantities, it was fit for use, but as to a third or a quarter -- we have not heard the law. Rabbi Yehudah said: This is the general rule -- In its proper proportion, it is fit for use in half the full amount; but if he left out any one of its spices, he is liable to the death penalty.

It is taught: Bar Kappara says: Once every sixty or seventy years, the accumulated leftovers reached half the yearly quantity. Bar Kappara taught further:Had one put a kortov of fruit-honey into it? Because the torah says: 'For any leaven or any fruit-honey, you are not to burn from them a fire-offering to God.'

[The following three verses are repeated three times each.]

God, Master of Legions, is with us, a stronghold for us is in the God of Jacob, Selah!
God, Master of Legions, praiseworthy is the person who trusts in you
God, save! May the Ruler answer us on the day we call!

You are a shelter for me; from distress you preserve me; with glad song of rescue, you envelop me, Selah! May the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasing to God, as in days of old and in former years.

Abaye listed the order of the Altar service based on the tradition and according to Abba Shaul: The arrangement of the large pyre for the incense-offering; the secondary pure of the incense-offering precedes the placement of two logs; the placement of two logs precedes the removal of ashes from the Inner Altar; the removal of ashes from the Inner Altar precedes the cleaning of five lamps [of the Menorah]; the cleaning of the five lamps precedes the [dashing of the] blood of the continual offering; the blood of the continual offering precedes the cleaning of the [other[ two lamps; the cleaning of the two lamps precedes the incense; the incense precedes the [burning of the] limbs; the limbs precede the meal-offering; the meal-offering precedes the bowls [of frankincense]; the bowls precede the afternoon continual offering, for it is said: 'And he is to arrange the elevation-offering upon it and burn the fats of the peace-offerings upon it,' -- 'upon it' you are to complete all the day's offerings.

Be beg you! With the strength pf your right hand's greatness, untie the bundled sins. Accept the prayer of Your nation; strengthen us, purify us, O Awesome One. Please, O Strong One, those who foster Your Oneness, guard them like the pupil of an eye. Bless them, purify them, show them pity, may Your righteousness always recompense them. Powerful Holy One with your abundant goodness guide your congregation. One and only Exalted One, turn to your nation, which proclaims your holiness. Accept our entreaty and hear our cry, O Knower of mysteries. Blessed is the name of God's glorious Kingdom for all eternity.

On the Sabbath day [the mussaf-offering is]: two male first-year lambs, unblemished; two tenth-ephah of fine flour for a meal-offering, mixed with olive oil, and its wine-libation. The elevation offering of the Sabbath myst be on its particular Sabbath, in addition to the continual elevation-offering and its wine-libation.

[1] What is the location of teh offerings? [Regarding] the most holy offerings, their slaughter is in the north. The slaughter of the bull and the he-goat of Yom Kippur is in the north and the reception of their blood in a service-vessel is in the north. Their blood requires sprinkling between the poles of the Holy Ark and toward the Curtain of the Holy of Holies and upon the Golden Altar. Every one of these applications of blood is essential. The leftover blood he would pour onto the western base of the Outer Altar; but if he failed to apply the leftover blood on the base, he has not prevented atonement.

[2] Regarding the bulls that are completely burned and he-goats that are completely burned, their slaughter is in the north and the reception of their blood in a service-vessel is in the north. Their blood requires sprinkling toward the Curtain and upon the Golden Altar. Every one of these applications is essential. The leftover blood he would pour onto the western base of the Outer Altar; but if he failed to apply it, he has not prevented atonement. Both these and those are burned in the place where the ashes are deposited.

[3] Regarding sin-offerings of the community and of the individual -- the communal sin-offerings are the following: the he-goats of Rosh Chodesh and festivals -- their slaughter is in the north and the reception of their blood in a service-vessel is in the north. Their blood requires four applications one on each of the four corners of the Altar. How is it done? He ascended the ramp, turned to the surrounding ledge and arrived at the southeast corner, the northeast, the northwest, and the southwest. The leftover blood he would pour out on the southern base. They are eaten within the Courtyard curtains, by males of the priesthood, prepared in any manner, on the same day and that night until midnight.

[4] The elevation-offering is among the most holy offerings. Its slaughter is in the north and the reception of its blood is in a service-vessel is in the north. its blood requires two applications that are equivalent to four. It requires flaying and dismemberment and it is entirely consumed by the fire.

[5] Regarding communal peace-offerings and personal guilt-offerings -- the guilt-offerings are as follows: the guilt-offering for thefts, the guilt-offering for misuse of sacred objects, the guilt-offering for violating a betrothed maidservant, the guilt-offering of at Nazirite, the guilt-offering of a metzora, and a guilt-offering in case of doubt -- their slaughter is in the north and the reception of their blood in a service-vessel is in the north. Their blood requires two applications that are equivalent to four. They are eaten within the Courtyard curtains, by males of the priesthood, prepared in any manner, on the same day and that night until midnight.

[6] The thanksgiving-offering and the ram of a Nazirite are offerings of lesser holiness. Their slaughter is anywhere in the Courtyard, and their blood requires two applications that are equivalent to four. They are eaten throughout the City [of Jerusalem] by anyone, prepared in any manner, on the same day and that night until midnight. The priestly portion separated from them is treated like them, except that that portion may be eaten only by the priests, their wives, children, and slaves.

[7] The peace-offerings are offerings of lesser holiness. Their slaughter is anywhere in the courtyard, and their blood requires two applications that are equivalent to four. They are eaten throughout the City [of Jerusalem] by anyone, prepared in any manner, for two days and one night. The priestly portion separated from them is treated like them, except that that portion may be eaten only by the priests, their wives, children and slaves.

[8] The firstborn and thith of animals and the Pesach-offering are offerings of lesser holiness. Their slaughter is anywhere in the Courtyard, and their blood requires a single application, provided he applies it above the base. They differ in their consumption: The firstborn is eaten by priests, and the tithe by anyone. They are eaten throughout the City of Jerusalem, prepared in any manner, for two days and one night. The Pesach-offering is eaten only at night and it may be eaten only until midnight; it may be eaten only by those registered for it; and it may be eaten only if roasted.

Rabbi Yishmael says: Through thirteen rules is the Torah elucidated; (1) Through a conclusion inferred from a lenient law to a strict one, and vice versa; (2) through tradition that similar words in different contexts are meant to clarify one another; (3) through a general principle derived from one verse, and a general principle derived from two verses; (4) through a general statement limited by a specification; (5) through a specification broadened by a general statement; (6) through a general statement followed by a specification followed, in turn, by another general statement -- you may only infer whatever is similar to the specification; (7) when a general statement requires a specification or a specification requires a general statement to clarify its meaning; (8) anything that was included in a general statement, but was then singled out from the general statement in order to teach something, was not singled out to teach only about itself, but to apply its teaching to the entire generality; (9) anything that was included in a general statement, but was then singled out to discuss a provision similar to the general category, has been singled out to be more lenient rather than more severe; (10) anything that was included in a general statement, but was then singled out to discuss a provision not similar to the general category, has been singled out both to be more lenient and more severe; (11) anything that was included in a general statement, but was then singled out to be treated as a new case, cannot be returned to its general statement unless Scripture returns it explicitly to its general statement; (12) a matter elucidated from its context, or from the following passage; (13) similarly, two passages that contradict one another -- until a third passage comes to reconcile them.

May it be your will, Adonai, our God and the God of our ancestors, that the Holy Temple be rebuilt, speedily in our days, and grant us our share in Your Torah, and may we serve You there with reverence as in the days of old and in former years.

Pesukei D'zimrah (Verses of Praise)

Mizmor Shir Chanukat Habayit L'David: Psalm 30 מזמור שיר חנכת הבית לדוד

A Psalm; a Song at the Dedication of the House; a Psalm of David.
I will extol you, Adonai; for you have drawn me up, and have not made my foes to rejoice over me. Adonai, my God, I cried unto you, and you healed me. Adonai, you brought up my soul from the grave: you have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit. Sing praise unto God, O you, God's loving ones, and give thanks to God's holy Name. For God's anger is but for a moment; God's favor is for a lifetime: weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes in the morning. As for me, I said in my prosperity, I shall never be moved. You, Adonai, of your favor have made my mountain to stand strong: you hid your face; I was confounded. I cried unto you, Adonai; and unto God I made supplication: What profit is there in my blood if I go down to the pit? Can the dust give thanks to you? Can it declare your truth? Hear, Adonai, and be gracious to me; Adonai, be my helper.(Reader) You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; you have loosened my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness: to the end that my glory may sing praise to you, and not be silent: Adonai my God, I will give thanks unto you forever.

Hodu L'Adonai Kiru b'Shemo הודו ליי קראו בשמו

Glory in God's holy Name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek God. Search for Adonai and God's strength; seek God's face evermore. Remember God's marvelous works that God has done; God's wonders, and the judgments of God's mouth; O you seed of Israel, God's servant, you children of Jacob, God's chosen ones. God is Adonai our God: God's judgments are in all the earth. Remember God's covenant for ever, the word which God commanded to a thousand generations; (the covenant) which God made with Abraham, and God's oath unto Isaac; and established it unto Jacob for a statute, to Israel for an everlasting covenant: saying, Unto you will I give the land of Canaan, as the lot of your inheritance: when you were but a few men in number; yes, few, and sojourners in it; and when they were going about from nation to nation, and from one kingdom to another people. God suffered no one to oppress them; yes, God rebuked kings for their sakes; (saying), Touch not mine anointed ones, and do my prophets no harm.
O sing unto Adonai, a new song: sing unto Adonai, all the earth. Sing unto Adonai, bless God'sName: proclaim God's salvation from day to day. Declare God's glory among the nations, God's wondrous works among all the peoples. For great is Adonai, and exceedingly to be praised: God is to be revered above all gods. For all the gods of the peoples are things of nought: but Adonai made the heavens. Splendor and majesty are before God: strength and beauty are in God's sanctuary. Ascribe unto Adonai, you families of the peoples, ascribe unto Adonai glory and strength. Give unto Adonai the glory due unto God's Name: bring an offering and come into God's courts. O worship Adonai in the beauty of holiness; tremble before God, all the earth. Say among the nations, Adonai reigns: the world also is set firm that it cannot be moved: God shall judge the peoples with equity. Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fullness thereof; let the plain exult and all that is therein; yes, let all the trees of the forest sing for joy, before Adonai, for God comes; for God comes to judge the earth: God will judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples in God's faithfulness. And say, "Save us, O God of our salvation, gather us and rescue us from the nations, to thank your holy Name and to glory in your praise!" Blessed is Adonai, the God of Israel from this world to the world to come. And let the entire people say, "Amen and praise to God!"
(Reader) Exalt Adonai, our God, and bow at God's footstool. God is holy! Exalt Adonai our God, and bow at God's holy mountain; for holy is Adonai our God.
God, the merciful one, is forgiving of iniquity and does not destroy; frequently, God withdraws God's anger, not arousing God's entire rage. You, Adonai -- withhold not our mercy from me; may your kindness and your truth always protect me. Remember your mercies, Adonai, and your kindnesses, for they are from the beginning of the world. Render might to God, whose majesty hovers over Israel and whose might is in the clouds. You are awesome, O God, from your sanctuaries, O God of Israel -- it is God who grants might and power to the people, blessed is God. O God of vengeance, Adonai, O God of vengeance, appear! Arise O Judge of the earth, render recompense to the haughty. Salvation is Adonai's, upon your people is your blessing, Selah. Adonai, Sovereign of Legions, is with us, a stronghold for us is the God of Jacob, Selah. Adonai, Sovereign of Legions, praiseworthy is the person who trusts in you. Adonai, save! May the Ruler answer us on the day we call.
Save your people and bless your heritage, tend them and elevate them forever. our soul longed for Adonai -- our help and our shield is God.(Reader) For in God will our hearts be glad, for in God's holy Name we trusted. May your kindness, Adonai, be upon us, just as we awaited you. Show us your kindness, Adonai, and grant us your salvation. Arise, assist us and redeem us by virtue of your kindness. I am Adonai, your God, who raised you from the land of Egypt, open wide your mouth and I will fill it. Praiseworthy is the people for whom this is so, praiseworthy is the people whose God is Adonai. As for me, I trust in your kindness; my heart will rejoice in your salvation.(Reader) I will sing to Adonai, for God dealt kindly with me.

Lamenatzeyach Mizmor l'David למנצח מזמור לדוד

[Psalm 19] For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament shows God's handiwork. Day unto day pour forth speech, and night unto night proclaim knowledge. There is no speech nor language; their voice cannot be heard. Their sound is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world; in them God set a tent for the sun. And God is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoices as a strong man to run his course. God's going forth is from the end of the heaven, and God's circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hidden from God's heat.—The teaching of Adonai is perfect, restoring the soul: the testimony of Adonai is sure, making wise the simple. The precepts of Adonai are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of Adonai is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of Adonai is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of Adonai are true, righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yes, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the droppings of the honeycomb. Moreover by them is your servant warned: in keeping them there is great reward. Who can discern God's errors? Clear me from hidden faults. Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be blameless, and I shall be clear from great transgression. (Reader) Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable before you, Adonai my Rock and my Redeemer.

L'David B'shanatoh לדוד בשנותו

[Psalm 34] A Psalm of David; when he changed his behavior before Abimelech who drove him away, and he departed.
I will bless Adonai at all times: God's praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in Adonai: the meek shall hear and rejoice. O magnify Adonai with me, and let us exalt God's Name together. I sought Adonai, and God answered me, and delivered me from all my fears. They looked unto God, and shone with joy: and their faces shall not be confounded. This sufferer cried, and Adonai heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of Adonai encamps around those that revere God, and delivers them. O consider and see that Adonai is good: happy is the person that takes refuge in God. O revere Adonai, you God's holy ones: for there is no want to them that revere God. Young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek Adonai shall not want any good. Come, you children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of Adonai. What person is he that delights in life, and loves many days that he may see good? Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it. The eyes of Adonai are towards the righteous, and God's ears are towards their cry. The face of Adonai is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. They cry, and Adonai hearkens, and delivers them out of all their troubles. Adonai is close unto them that are of a broken heart, and saves such as are of a contrite spirit. Many are the evil fortunes of the righteous: but Adonai delivers him out of them all. He guards all his limbs: not one of them is broken. Evil shall slay the wicked; and they that hate the righteous shall be held guilty. Adonai sets free the soul of God's servants; (Reader) and none that take refuge in God shall be condemned.

T'fillah L'Moshe תפלה למשה

[Psalm 90] A Prayer of Moses, the man of God.

Adonai, you have been a dwelling place unto us in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you gave birth to the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting you are God. You turn humankind back to dust, and sayt, Return, you children of mankind. For a thousand years in your sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night. You carry them away as with a flood; they are in a sleep; in the morning they are like grass which sprouts afresh. In the morning it blooms, and sprouts afresh; in the evening, it is cut down, and withers. For we are consumed by your anger, and in your wrath are we confounded. You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your countenance. For all our days are passed away in your wrath, we bring our years to an end like a tale that is told. The days of our years are threescore years and ten, or even by reason of strength fourscore years; yet is their pride but travail and nothingness; for it is soon gone by, and we fly away. Who knows the power of your anger, and your wrath according to the awe that is due unto you? So teach us to number our days, that we may get us a heart of wisdom. Return Adonai; how long?—and relent concerning your servants. O satisfy us in the morning with your lovingkindness; that we may exult and rejoice all our days. Make us rejoice according to the days wherein you have afflicted us, the years wherein we have seen evil. Let your work be made manifest unto your servants, and your majesty upon their children.

(Reader) And let the graciousness of Adonai our God be upon us: and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands.

Yoshev B'seter Elyon ישב בסתר עליון

[Psalm 91]

He that dwells in the shelter of the Most High abides under the shadow of the Almighty. I say of Adonai, God is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in whom I trust.—For God shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. God shall cover you with God's pinions, and under God's wings you shall take refuge: God's truth shall be a shield and armor. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day; of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor of the destruction that ravages at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, yet it shall not come close unto you. Only with your eyes shall you look on, and see the retribution of the wicked.—For you, Adonai, are my refuge.—You have made the Most High your dwelling place; there shall no evil befall you, neither shall any scourge come close to your tent. For God shall give God's angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. They shall bear you upon their hands, lest you strike your foot against a stone. you shall tread upon the lion and the adder; upon the young lion and the serpent you shall trample.—Because he has set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he knows my Name. When he calls upon Me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble: I will deliver him and honor him. (Reader) With length of days will I satisfy him, and will let him see my salvation. With length of days will I satisfy him, and will show him my salvation.

Halleluyah Hallelu Et Shem Adonai הללויה הללו את שם יי

[Psalm 135]
Praise Adonai. Praise the Name of Adonai; praise God, you servants of Adonai: you that stand in the house of Adonai in the courts of the house of our God. Praise Adonai; for Adonai is good: sing praises unto God's Name; for it is pleasant. For Adonai has chosen Jacob, and Israel for God's peculiar treasure. For I know that Adonai is great, and that our God is above all gods. Whatsoever Adonai pleases, God does, in heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps. God causes vapors to ascent from the ends of the earth, God makes lightnings for the rain; God brings forth the wind out of God's treasuries. It is God who smote the firstborn of Egypt, both of human and beast. God sent signs and wonders into the midst of you, O Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his servants. It is God who smote great nations, and slew mighty kings; Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og king of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan: and gave their land for an heritage, an heritage unto Israel God's people. Your Name, O Adonai, endures forever; your fame, O Adonai, throughout all generations. Surely Adonai shall judge the people, and relent towards God's servants. The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, the work of human hands. They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not; they have ears, but they hear not; neither is there any breath in their mouths. They that make them shall become like unto them; yes every one that trusts in them.(Reader) O house of Israel, bless Adonai: O house of Aaron, bless Adonai: O house of Levi, bless Adonai: you that fear Adonai, bless Adonai. Blessed be Adonai out of Zion, who dwells at Jerusalem. Praise Adonai.

To God who parted the Red Sea asunder: for God's lovingkindness endures forever: and made Israel to pass through the midst of it: for God's lovingkindness endures forever: But overthrew Pharaoh and his host in the Red Sea: for God's lovingkindness endures forever. To God who led the people through the wilderness: for God's lovingkindness endures forever. To God who smote great rulers: for God's lovingkindness endures forever: and slew mighty rulers: for God's lovingkindness endures forever.

Who remembered us in our low estate: for God's lovingkindness endures forever: and has delivered us from our adversaries: for the lovingkindness endureth for ever. (Reader) He giveth food to all flesh: for God's lovingkindness endures forever. O give thanks unto the God of heaven: for God's lovingkindness endures forever.

Ran'nenu Tzadikim Ba'Adonai רננו צדיקים ביי

[Psalm 33]
Rejoice in Adonai, O you righteous: praise is seemly for the upright. Give thanks unto Adonai with the lyre: sing praises unto God with the harp of ten strings. Sing unto God a new song; play skilfully with sounds of joy. For the word of Adonai is right; and all God's work is done in faithfulness. God loves righteousness and justice: the earth is full of the lovingkindness of Adonai. By the word of Adonai the heavens were made; and all the host of them by the breath of God's mouth. He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap: he lays up the floods in store-houses. Let all the earth revere Adonai: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of God. For God spoke, and it was; God commanded, and it stood fast. God annuls the counsel of nations, and balks the designs of heard throughout the generations. Praiseworthy is the nation whose God is Adonai, the people God chose for God's own heritage. From heaven, God looks down and sees all humankind. from God's dwelling place God oversees all inhabitants of earth. God fashions their hearts all together and comprehends all their deeds. A ruler is not saved by a great army, nor is a hero rescued by great strength. sham is the horse for salvation; despite its great strength it provides no escape. Behold, and eye of Adonai is on those that fear God, upon those who await God's kindness, to rescue their soul from death and to sustain them in famine. (Reader) Our soul longed for Adonai -- God is our help and our shield. For in God will our hearts be glad, for in God's holy name we trusted. May your kindness, Adonai, be upon us, just as we awaited you.

[Psalm 92]
A Psalm, a Song for the Sabbath Day. It is a good thing to give thanks unto God, and to sing praises unto God's Name, O Most High: to declare your lovingkindness in the morning, and your faithfulness every night, with an instrument of ten strings and with a harp, with solemn music upon the lyre. For you, Adonai, have made me rejoice through your work: I will exult in the works of your hands. How great are your works, Adonai: your thoughts are very deep. A brutish man knows it not, neither does a fool understand this: when the wicked sprang up as the grass, and all the workers of iniquity flourished, it was that they might be destroyed forever. But you, Adonai, are on high for evermore. For, lo, your enemies, Adonai, for, lo, your enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered. But my strength you have exalted, like that of the wild-ox: I am anointed with fresh oil. My eye has also seen the defeat of my enemies; my ears have heard the doom of them that rose up against me, doers of evil. (Reader) The righteous shall spring up like a palm-tree; and shall grow tall like a cedar in Lebanon. Planted in the house of Adonai, they shall blossom in the courts of our God. They shall still shoot forth in old age; they shall be full of sap and green: to declare that Adonai is upright; God is my Rock, and there is no unrighteousness in God.

Adonai Malach Geyut Lavesh Psalm 93 יהוה מלך גאות לבש

Adonai reigns; God is robed in majesty; Adonai is robed, yes, God is girded with strength: the world also is set firm, that it cannot be moved. Your throne is set firm from of old: you are from everlasting. The streams have lifted up, Adonai, the streams have lifted up their voice; the streams lift up their roaring. (Reader) Than the voices of many waters, mighty waters, breakers of the sea, more mighty is Adonai on high. Your testimonies are very sure: holiness becomes thine house, Adonai, for evermore.

יְיָ מָלָךְ גֵּאוּת לָבֵשׁ, לָבֵשׁ יְיָ עֹז הִתְאַזָּר, אַף תִּכּוֹן תֵּבֵל בַּל תִּמּוֹט. נָכוֹן כִּסְאֲךָ מֵאָז, מֵעוֹלָם אָֽתָּה. נָשְׂאוּ נְהָרוֹת יְיָ, נָשְׂאוּ נְהָרוֹת קוֹלָם, יִשְׂאוּ נְהָרוֹת דָּכְיָם.(Reader) מִקֹּלוֹת מַיִם רַבִּים אַדִּירִים מִשְׁבְּרֵי יָם, אַדִּיר בַּמָּרוֹם יְיָ. עֵדֹתֶיךָ נֶאֶמְנוּ מְאֹד לְבֵיתְךָ נָאֲוָה קֹּֽדֶשׁ, יְיָ לְאֹֽרֶךְ יָמִים.

Yehi Chevod Adonai L'Olam יהי כבוד יי לעולם

Let the glory of God endure for ever: let Adonai rejoice in God's works. Let the Name of Adonai be blessed from this time and for evermore. From the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof God’s Name is to be praised. Adonai is high above all nations, and God's glory above the heavens. Your Name, Adonai, endures for ever; your fame, Adonai, throughout all generations. Adonai has established a throne in the heavens; and God's kingdom rules over all. Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; and let them say among the nations, Adonai reigns. ADONAI IS RULER; ADONAI WAS RULER; ADONAI SHALL BE RULER FOR EVER AND EVER. Adonai is Ruler for ever and ever; the heathen are perished out of God's land. God brings the design of the heathen to nought; God has foiled the thoughts of the peoples. Many are the thoughts in a human’s heart; but the counsel of God, that shall stand. The counsel of God stands fast for ever, the thoughts of God's heart to all generations. For God spoke, and it was; God commanded, and it stood fast. For Adonai has chosen Zion; God has desired it for God's habitation. For God has chosen Jacob, Israel for God's peculiar treasure. For God will not cast off God's people, neither will God forsake God's inheritance. (Reader) And God, being merciful, forgives iniquity, and destroys not: yes, many a time God turns God's anger away, and does not stir up all God's wrath. Save, Adonai: may the Sovereign answer us on the day when we call.

יְהִי כְבוֹד יְיָ לְעוֹלָם, יִשְׂמַח יְיָ בְּמַעֲשָׂיו. יְהִי שֵׁם יְיָ מְבֹרָךְ, מֵעַתָּה וְעַד עוֹלָם. מִמִּזְרַח שֶׁמֶשׁ עַד מְבוֹאוֹ, מְהֻלָּל שֵׁם יְיָ. רָם עַל כָּל גּוֹיִם יְיָ, עַל הַשָּׁמַיִם כְּבוֹדוֹ. יְיָ שִׁמְךָ לְעוֹלָם, יְיָ זִכְרְךָ לְדֹר וָדֹר. יְיָ בַּשָּׁמַיִם הֵכִין כִּסְאוֹ, וּמַלְכוּתוֹ בַּכֹּל מָשָׁלָה. יִשְׂמְחוּ הַשָּׁמַיִם וְתָגֵל הָאָֽרֶץ, וְיֹאמְרוּ בַגּוֹיִם, יְיָ מָלָךְ. יְיָ מֶלֶךְ, יְיָ מָלָךְ, יְיָ יִמְלֹךְ לְעֹלָם וָעֶד. יְיָ מֶלֶךְ עוֹלָם וָעֶד, אָבְדוּ גוֹיִם מֵאַרְצוֹ. יְיָ הֵפִיר עֲצַת גּוֹיִם, הֵנִיא מַחְשְׁבוֹת עַמִּים. רַבּוֹת מַחֲשָׁבוֹת בְּלֶב אִישׁ, וַעֲצַת יְיָ הִיא תָקוּם. עֲצַת יְיָ לְעוֹלָם תַּעֲמֹד, מַחְשְׁבוֹת לִבּוֹ לְדֹר וָדֹר. כִּי הוּא אָמַר וַיֶּהִי, הוּא צִוָּה וַיַּעֲמֹד. כִּי בָחַר יְיָ בְּצִיּוֹן, אִוָּהּ לְמוֹשָׁב לוֹ. כִּי יַעֲקֹב בָּחַר לוֹ יָהּ, יִשְׂרָאֵל לְסְגֻלָּתוֹ. כִּי לֹא יִטֹּשׁ יְיָ עַמּוֹ, וְנַחֲלָתוֹ לֹא יַעֲזֹב.(Reader) וְהוּא רַחוּם יְכַפֵּר עָוֹן וְלֹא יַשְׁחִית, וְהִרְבָּה לְהָשִׁיב אַפּוֹ, וְלֹא יָעִיר כָּל חֲמָתוֹ. יְיָ הוֹשִׁיעָה, הַמֶּלֶךְ יַעֲנֵנוּ בְיוֹם קָרְאֵנוּ.

Ashrei Psalm 145 אשרי

Those who dwell in Your house are happy and will be forever praising You. Happy are those who are part of Your people. Happy is the people whose God is the Sovereign.

אַשְׁרֵי יוֹשְׁבֵי בֵיתֶךָ, עוֹד יְהַלְלֽוּךָ סֶּלָה. אַשְׁרֵי הָעָם שֶׁכָּכָה לּוֹ, אַשְׁרֵי הָעָם שֶׁיְיָ אֱלֹהָיו.

I will praise You, my God and Sovereign and will bless Your Name forever and ever. Every day I will bless You and praise Your Name forever and ever.

תְּהִלָּה לְדָוִד, אֲרוֹמִמְךָ אֱלוֹהַי הַמֶּלֶךְ, וַאֲבָרְכָה שִׁמְךָ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד. בְּכָל יוֹם אֲבָרְכֶךָּ, וַאֲהַלְלָה שִׁמְךָ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד.

Adonai is great and deserving of excessive praise. God’s greatness lasts throughout the generations. One generation shall describe Your holy acts to another, and shall declare Your acts mighty.

גָּדוֹל יְיָ וּמְהֻלָּל מְאֹד, וְלִגְדֻלָּתוֹ אֵין חֵקֶר. דּוֹר לְדוֹר יְשַׁבַּח מַעֲשֶׂיךָ, וּגְבוּרֹתֶיךָ יַגִּידוּ.

I will meditate on Your majestic glory, and Your marvelous deeds.

הֲדַר כְּבוֹד הוֹדֶךָ, וְדִבְרֵי נִפְלְאֹתֶיךָ אָשִׂיחָה.

People will speak of the might of Your tremendous acts and will recount Your greatness. They will speak of Your famous goodness, and will exult in Your righteousness.

וֶעֱזוּז נוֹרְאוֹתֶיךָ יֹאמֵרוּ, וּגְדֻלָּתְךָ אֲסַפְּרֶנָּה. זֶכֶר רַב טוּבְךָ יַבִּיעוּ, וְצִדְקָתְךָ יְרַנֵּנוּ.

Adonai is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and full of great lovingkindness. Adonai is good to all and exudes tender mercy through God’s holy work.

חַנּוּן וְרַחוּם יְיָ, אֶרֶךְ אַפַּיִם וּגְדָל חָסֶד. טוֹב יְיָ לַכֹּל, וְרַחֲמָיו עַל כָּל מַעֲשָׂיו.

All Your works will give thanks to You, O God, and Your loved ones will bless You.

יוֹדֽוּךָ יְיָ כָּל מַעֲשֶׂיךָ, וַחֲסִידֶיךָ יְבָרְכֽוּכָה.

They will speak of Your glory and Your power to make known to the world God’s mighty acts, and the majestic glory of the divine kingdom.

כְּבוֹד מַלְכוּתְךָ יֹאמֵרוּ, וּגְבוּרָתְךָ יְדַבֵּרוּ. לְהוֹדִיעַ לִבְנֵי הָאָדָם גְּבוּרֹתָיו, וּכְבוֹד הֲדַר מַלְכוּתוֹ.

Your sovereignty is everlasting. Your reign endures throughout all generations.

מַלְכוּתְךָ מַלְכוּת כָּל עוֹלָמִים, וּמֶמְשַׁלְתְּךָ בְּכָל דֹּר וָדֹר.

Adonai supports all who fall and raises up all those who are bowed down. The eyes of all remain fixed upon You and You give them their food when the time is right.

סוֹמֵךְ יְיָ לְכָל הַנֹּפְלִים, וְזוֹקֵף לְכָל הַכְּפוּפִים. עֵינֵי כֹל אֵלֶיךָ יְשַׂבֵּרוּ, וְאַתָּה נוֹתֵן לָהֶם אֶת אָכְלָם בְּעִתּוֹ.

You open Your hand and spread Your favor over all living creatures. Adonai is righteous in every way and works only through love.

פּוֹתֵחַ אֶת יָדֶךָ, וּמַשְׂבִּיעַ לְכָל חַי רָצוֹן. צַדִּיק יְיָ בְּכָל דְּרָכָיו, וְחָסִיד בְּכָל מַעֲשָׂיו.

Adonai is near to all who call in truth.

קָרוֹב יְיָ לְכָל קֹרְאָיו, לְכֹל אֲשֶׁר יִקְרָאֻהוּ בֶאֱמֶת.

Adonai’s reverent followers will have their desires fulfilled. God will hear their cries and will save them. All who love Adonai will be protected, but all the wicked will be destroyed.

רְצוֹן יְרֵאָיו יַעֲשֶׂה, וְאֶת שַׁוְעָתָם יִשְׁמַע וְיוֹשִיעֵם. שׁוֹמֵר יְיָ אֶת כָּל אֹהֲבָיו, וְאֵת כָּל הָרְשָׁעִים יַשְׁמִיד.

(Reader) My mouth shall express praise for Adonai. May all of humanity learn to bless God’s holy Name forever and ever. We will bless Adonai from this time forth and forevermore. Praise God!

(Reader) תְּהִלַּת יְיָ יְדַבֶּר פִּי, וִיבָרֵךְ כָּל בָּשָׂר שֵׁם קָדְשׁוֹ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד. וַאֲנַחְנוּ נְבָרֵךְ יָהּ, מֵעַתָּה וְעַד עוֹלָם, הַלְלוּיָהּ.

[Psalm 146]
Praise God. Praise God, O my soul: I will praise God, while I live: I will sing praises unto my God while I have my being. Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no help. When his breath goes forth, he returns to the earth; in that very day his designs perish. Happy is he that has the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in Adonai his God: who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is therein; who keeps truth for ever: who secures justice for the oppressed; who gives food to the hungry: God sets free the prisoners; God opens the eyes of the blind; God raises up them that are bowed down; God loves the righteous; God guards the strangers; God upholds the orphan and widow; but the way of the wicked God makes crooked. (Reader) God shall reign for ever; your God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise God.

[Psalm 147]
Praise God; for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant, and praise is seemly. God builds up Jerusalem; and gathers together the dispersed of Israel. God heals the broken in heart, and binds up their wounds. He counts the number of the stars: he calls them all by their names. Great is Adonai, and mighty in power; God's understanding is infinite. God upholds the meek: God brings the wicked down to the ground. Sing unto God with thanksgiving; sing praises upon the harp unto our God; who covers the heaven with clouds, who prepares rain for the earth, who makes grass to grow upon the mountains; who gives to the beast its food, and to the young ravens when they cry. God delights not in the strength of the horse, God takes no pleasure in the swiftness of a man. Adonai takes pleasure in them that fear God, in them that hope for God's lovingkindness. Extol God, O Jerusalem; praise your God, O Zion. For God has strengthened the bars of your gates; and has blessed your children within you. God makes peace in your borders; God satisfies you with the full-ripe wheat. God sends out God's commandment to the earth; God's word runs very swiftly. God gives snow like wool; God scatters hoar frost like ashes. He casts forth ice like morsels: who can stand before God's cold? God sends out God's word, and melts them: God causes God's wind to blow, and the waters flow. (Reader) God declares God's words unto Jacob, and statutes and judgments unto Israel. God has not dealt so with any other nation: and as for God's judgments, they do not know them. Praise Adonai.

Praise God, you heavens of heavens, and you waters that are above the heavens. Let them praise the Name of God, for God commanded, and they were created. God established them for ever and ever: God made a decree which none shall transgress. Praise Adonai from the earth, you sea-monsters and all deeps: fire and hail, snow and smoke; stormy wind, fulfilling God's word: mountains and all hills; fruit trees and all cedars: wild beasts and all cattle; creeping things and winged birds: rulers of the earth and all peoples; princes and all judges of the earth: both young men and maidens; old men and children: (Reader) let them praise the Name of Adonai; for God's Name alone is exalted: God's majesty is above the earth and heaven. And God has exalted the power of God's people, to the praise of all God's loving ones: even of the children of Israel, the people near unto God praise Adonai.

Praise God. Sing unto God a new song; God's praise in the assembly of those that love Adonai. Let Israel rejoice in his Maker: let the children of Zion be glad in their Soveriegn. Let them praise God's Name with the dance: let them sing praises unto God with the timbrel and harp. For Adonai takes pleasure in God's people: God adorns the meek with victory. Let those that love God triumph in glory: let them sing for joy upon their beds. High praises of God are in their throat, and a two-edged sword in their hand; to execute retribution upon the nations, and punishments upon the peoples:(Reader) to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron, to execute upon them the judgment which is written. God is the honor of all God's loving ones. Praise Adonai.

[Psalm 150]
Praise God. Praise God in God's sanctuary: praise God in the firmament of God's power. Praise God for mighty acts: praise God according to God's abundant greatness. Praise God with the sound of the horn: praise God with the harp and lyre. Praise God with the timbrel and dance: praise God with the clear-toned cymbals: praise God with the loud-sounding cymbals. (Reader) Let everything that has breath praise Adonai: praise God, let everything that has breath praise Adonai: praise Adonai.

Va'yevarech David et Adonai ויברך דויד את יי

It is customary to stand until after "Az Yashir" is completed.

[I Chronicles xxix. 10-13]
And David blessed Adonai in the presence of all the congregation: and David said, Blessed are you, Adonai, the God of Israel our parent, from everlasting to everlasting. Yours, O God, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is yours; yours, Adonai, is the kingdom, and the supremacy as head over all. Riches and honor come of you, and you rule over all; and in your hand are might and power; and in your hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all. Now, therefore, our God, we give thanks unto you, and praise you glorious Name.

[Nehemiah ix. 6-11]
You are Adonai, even you alone; you have made the heavens, the heavens of heavens, and all their host, the earth and all things that are thereon, the seas and all that is in them, and you give life to them all; and the host of heaven worship you. You are Adonai, the God, who did choose Abram, and brought him forth out of Ur of the Chaldees, and gave him the name of Abraham: and found his heart faithful before you: And you made a covenant with him to give the land of the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Amorite, and the Perizzite, and the Jebusite, and the Girgashite, even to give it unto his seed, and have performed your words; for you are righteous. And you saw the affliction of our ancestors in Egypt, and heard their cry by the Red Sea; and shewed signs and wonders upon Pharaoh, and on all his servants, and on all the people of his land; for you knew that they dealt arrogantly against them; and did make you a name, as it is this day. And you divided the sea before them, so that they went through the midst of the sea on the dry land; and their pursuers you did cast into the depths, as a stone into the mighty waters.

[Exodus xiv. 30—xv. 18]
(Reader) Thus God saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea shore. And Israel saw the great power which Adonai put forth against the Egyptians, and the people revered Adonai: and they believed in Adonai, and in Moses his servant.

Az Yashir Moshe אז ישיר משה  

Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto God, and spoke, saying,
I will sing unto Adonai, for God has been highly exalted: the horse and his rider God has thrown into the sea. Adonai is my strength and song, and God has become my salvation: this is my God, who I will glorify; my ancestor’s God, who I will exalt. God is a man of war: Adonai is his Name. Pharaoh’s chariots and his host God cast into the sea: and his chosen captains are sunk in the Red Sea. The floods cover them: they went down into the depths like a stone. Your right hand, Adonai, is glorious in power, your right hand, Adonai, dashes in pieces the enemy. And in the greatness of your majesty you overthrow them that rise up against you: you send forth your wrath, it consumes them as stubble. And with the blast of your nostrils the waters were piled up, the streams stood upright as an heap; the floods were congealed in the heart of the sea. The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil: my desire shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them. You did blow with your wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters. Who is like you, Adonai, among the mighty: who is like you, glorious in holiness, revered in praises, doing marvels? You stretched out your right hand, the earth swallowed them. You in your lovingkindness led the people whom you have redeemed: you guided them in your strength to your holy habitation. The peoples have heard it; they tremble: pangs have taken hold of the habitants of Philistia. Then were the dukes of Edom confounded; the mighty people of Moab, trembling takes hold of them: all the inhabitants of Canaan are melted away. Terror and dread fall upon them: by the greatness of your arm they are still as a stone; till your people pass over, Adonai, till the people pass over, that you have acquired. You will bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of your inheritance, the place, Adonai, which you have made for you to dwell in, the sanctuary, Adonai, which your hands have established. Adonai shall reign for ever and ever. ADONAI SHALL REIGN FOR EVER AND EVER. [The kingdom of Adonai endures forever and to all eternity.]
(Reader) For the kingdom is Adonai’s: and God is ruler over the nations. And saviors shall come up on Mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be Adonai's. AND ADONAI SHALL BE SOVEREIGN OVER ALL THE EARTH; IN THAT DAY SHALL ADONAI BE ONE AND GOD'S NAME ONE.

Nishmat Kol Chai נשמת כל חי

The breath of every living being shall bless your Name, Adonai our God, and the spirit of all flesh shall ever extol and exalt your fame, O our Sovereign. From everlasting to everlasting you are God; and beside you we have no Sovereign, O you who redeems and saves, set free and deliver, who support and pities in all times of trouble and distress; yes, we have no Ruler but you.

You are God of the first and of the last ages, God of all creatures, God of all generations, adored in innumerable praises, guiding your world with lovingkindness and your creatures with tender mercies. Adonai slumbers not, nor sleeps, God arouses the sleepers and awakens the slumberers; God makes the dumb to speak, sets free the prisoners, supports the falling, and raises up those who are bowed down.

To you alone we give thanks. Were our mouths full of song as the sea, and our tongues of exultation as the multitude of its waves, and our lips of praise as the wide-extended skies; were our eyes shining with light like the sun and the moon, and our hands were spread forth like the eagles of the air, and our feet were swift as the wild deer, we should still be unable to thank you and to bless your Name, O Adonai our God and God of our ancestors, for one thousandth or one ten thousandth part of the bounties which you have bestowed upon our ancestors and upon us. You redeemed us from Egypt, Adonai our God, and released us from the house of bondage; during famine you fed us, and sustained us in plenty; from the sword you rescued us, from pestilence you saved us, and from sore and lingering diseases you delivered us.

Hitherto your tender mercies have helped us, and your lovingkindnesses have not left us: forsake us not, O Adonai our God, for ever. Therefore the limbs which you have planted in us, and the spirit and soul which you have breathed into us, and the tongue which you have set in our mouths, lo, they shall thank, bless, praise, glorify, extol, reverence, hallow and do homage to your Name, O our Ruler. For every mouth shall give thanks unto you, and every tongue shall swear allegiance unto you; every knee shall bow to you, and whatsoever is lofty shall prostrate itself before you. All hearts shall revere you, and our innermost being shall sing unto your Name, according to the word that is written, All my bones shall say, Adonai, who is like you? Thou deliver the poor from those that are stronger than he, the poor and the needy from those that rob him. Who is like you, who is equal to you, who can be compared unto you, O God, great, mighty, and awful, most high God, Maker of heaven and earth? We will praise, laud and glorify you, and we will bless your holy Name, as it is said (A Psalm of David,) Bless Adonai, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless God's holy Name. (Reader) You are God in the vastness of your power, great in your glorious Name, mighty forever and revered by your awe-inspiring acts, the Ruler who sits upon a high and lofty throne.

All shall thank you, and all shall praise you, and all shall say, There is none holy like Adonai. All shall extol you forever, you Creator of all things, O God who opens every day the door of the gates of the East, and cleaves the windows of the firmament, leading forth the sun from its place, and the moon from its dwelling, giving light to the whole world and to its inhabitants whom you created by the attribute of mercy. In mercy you gave light to the earth and to them that dwell thereon, and in your goodness renew the creation every day continually; O Sovereign, who alone was exalted from aforetime, praised, glorified and extolled from days of old. O everlasting God, in your abundant mercies, have mercy upon us, God of our strength, Rock of our stronghold, Shield of our salvation, you Stronghold of ours! (Reader) There is none to be compared unto you, neither is there any beside you; there is none but you: who is like unto you? There is none to be compared unto you, O Adonai our God, in this world, neither is there any beside you, O our Ruler, for the life of the world to come; there is none but you, O our Redeemer, for the days of the Messiah; neither is there any like unto you, O our Savior, for the revival of the dead.

The community sings this prayer along with the reader.

God, the Master of all works is ever to be blessed by the mouth of everything that has breath. God’s greatness and goodness fill the universe, surrounded by knowledge and understanding. God is exalted above everything else holy and is adorned in glory above the celestial chariot. Purity and integrity lie before God’s throne, lovingkindness and tender mercy before glory. The luminaries that God created are good: they were formed with knowledge, understanding and discernment. God gave them might and power to rule in the midst of the world. They are full of luster, and they radiate brightness: beautiful is their lustre throughout all the world. They rejoice in their commencement, and are glad in their returning; they perform with awe the will of their Master. Glory and honour they render unto God’s Name, exultation and rejoicing at the fame of God’s sovereignty. God called unto the sun, and it shone forth in light: God looked, and ordained the figure of the moon. All the hosts on high render praise unto God, the Seraphim, the Ophanim and the holy Chayoth ascribing glory and greatness

La'El Asher Shavat לאל אשר שבת

To the God who rested from all works, and on the seventh day was exalted and sat upon a throne of glory. With beauty the day of rest was robed, and called the Sabbath day a delight. This is the great distinction of the Sabbath day, that God rested thereon from all work, when the Sabbath day itself offered praise and said “A Psalm, a song of the Sabbath day, It is good to give thanks unto Adonai”. Therefore let all God's creatures glorify and bless God; let them render praise, honor and greatness to the God and Sovereign who is Creator of all things, and who, in holiness, gives an inheritance of rest to the people of Israel on the holy Sabbath day. Your Name, O Adonai our God, shall be hallowed, and your fame, O our Ruler, shall be proclaimed in heaven above and on the earth beneath. Be you blessed, O our Savior, for the excellency of your handiwork, and for the bright luminaries which you have made: they shall glorify you for ever.

May you be blessed, our Rock, our Ruler and Redeemer, Creator of holy ones. May your name be praised forever, our Sovereign, creator of ministering angels. All of whose ministering angels stand at the summit of the universe and proclaim -- with awe, together, loudly -- the words of the living God and Ruler of universe. (Reader) They are all beloved, they are all flawless, they are all mighty, they all do the will of their Maker with dread and reverence. And they all open their mouths in holiness and purity, in song and hymn, and bless, praise, glorify, revere, sanctify, and declare the sovereignty of --

The Name of the Divine Ruler, the great, mighty and dreaded One, holy is God; and they all take upon themselves the yoke of the kingdom of heaven one from the other, and give leave one unto the other to declare the holiness of their Creator: (Reader) in tranquil joy of spirit, with pure speech and holy melody they all respond in unison, and exclaim with awe:
HOLY, HOLY, HOLY IS ADONAI OF HOSTS: THE WHOLE EARTH IS FULL OF GOD'S GLORY.
(Reader) And the Ophanim and the holy Chayot with a noise of great rushing, upraising themselves towards the Seraphim, thus over against them offer praise and say:
BLESSED BE THE GLORY OF ADONAI FROM GOD'S PLACE.

To the blessed God they offer melodious strains; to the Ruler, the living and ever-existing God, they utter hymns and make their praises heard; for God alone works mighty deeds, and makes new things; God is the Ruler over struggle, sowing righteousness, and reaping victory. God creates healing, and is revered in praises. Adonai is the God of wonders, who in goodness renews the creation every day continually; as it is said, (O give thanks) to God that makes great lights, for God's lovingkindness endures for ever. (Reader) O cause a new light to shine upon Zion, and may we all be worthy soon to enjoy its brightness. Blessed are you, Adonai, Creator of the luminaries.

Ahavah Rabbah אהבה רבה

You have loved us with abounding love, Adonai our God. You have shown us great and overflowing tenderness. O our Master, our Ruler, for our ancestors’ sake, who trusted in You, and whom You taught the statutes of life, be also gracious to us and teach us. O Merciful One, ever compassionate, have mercy on us. Put it into our hearts to understand and to discern, to mark, learn and teach, to heed, to do and to fulfill in love all the words of instruction in Your Torah. Enlighten our eyes in Your Torah, and let our hearts cling to Your commandments, and unify our hearts. Let us love and revere Your Name, so that we will never be put to shame. Because we have trusted in Your holy, great and revered Name, we shall rejoice and be glad in Your saving power. Bring us in peace from the four corners of the earth, and make us go upright to our land, for (Reader) You are a God who works salvation. You have chosen us from all peoples and tongues, and have brought us near to Your great Name forever in faithfulness, that we might in love give thanks to You and proclaim Your unity. Blessed are You, Adonai, who has chosen Your people Israel in love.

Sh'ma שמע

The first line of the Sh'ma is recited out loud and in unison, with the right hand covering the eyes.

Hear, O Israel: Adonai is our God, Adonai is one.

שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל, יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ, יְיָ אֶחָד.

In an undertone:

Blessed is God’s glory forever and ever.

בָּרוּךְ שֵׁם כְּבוֹד מַלְכוּתוֹ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד.

And you shall love Adonai your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. And these words, which I command you this day, shall be upon your heart: and you shall teach them diligently unto your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up. And you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, and they shall be for frontlets between your eyes. And you shall write them upon the door-posts of your house, and upon your gates.

And it shall come to pass, if you shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love Adonai your God, and to serve God with all your heart and with all your soul, that I will give the rain of your land in its season, the former rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your corn, and your wine, and your oil. And I will give grass in thy field for your cattle, and you shall eat and be satisfied. Take heed to yourselves, lest your heart be deceived, and you turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them; and the anger of Adonai be kindled against you, and God shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and you perish quickly from off the good land which Adonai gave you. Therefore shall you lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul; and you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, and they shall be for frontlets between your eyes. And you shall teach them your children, talking of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up. And you shall write them upon the doorposts of your house, and upon your gates: that your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, upon the land which Adonai swore unto your ancestors to give them, as the days of the heavens above the earth.

And Adonai spoke to Moses, saying. Speak to the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them a fringe upon the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of each corner a cord of blue: and it shall be for you for a fringe, that you may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of Adonai, and do them: and that you go not about after your own heart and your own eyes, after which you go astray: that you may remember and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God. I am Adonai your God, who brought you out of the Land of Egypt, to be your God: I am Adonai your God.

True and firm, established and enduring, right and faithful, beloved and precious, desirable and pleasant, revered and mighty, well-ordered and acceptable, good and beautiful is this Your word to us forever and ever. It is true, the God of the universe is our Sovereign, the Rock of Jacob, the Shield of our salvation: throughout all generations God endures and God’s Name endures. The majestic throne is established, and God’s faithfulness endures forever. God’s words also live and endure; they are faithful and desirable forever and for all eternity, as for our ancestors so also for us, our children, our generations, and for all the generations of the seed of God’s servant Israel.

Alike for former and later ages your word is good and endures forever and ever; it is true and trustworthy, a statute which shall not pass away. True it is that you are indeed Adonai our God, and the God of our Ancestors, our Sovereign, our ancestors’ Ruler, our Redeemer, the Redeemer of our ancestors, our Maker, the Rock of our salvation; our Deliverer and Rescuer from everlasting, such is your Name; there is no God beside you.

Rise for the Amidah at this point.

Who is like you among the mighty? Who is like you glorious and holy? Who is like you revered in praise and performing wondrous miracles? With a new song the redeemed people praised Your Name at the seashore. They all gave thanks in unison, and proclaimed Your sovereignty, and said: Adonai shall reign forever and ever!

מִי כָמֹֽכָה בָּאֵלִם יְיָ, מִי כָּמֹֽכָה נֶאְדָּר בַּקּֽדֶשׁ, נוֹרָא תְהִלֹּת, עֹֽשֵׂה פֶלֶא. שִׁירָה חֲדָשָׁה שִׁבְּחוּ גְאוּלִים לְשִׁמְךָ עַל שְׂפַת הַיָּם, יַֽחַד כֻּלָּם הוֹדוּ וְהִמְלִיכוּ וְאָמְרוּ: יְיָ יִמְלֹךְ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד.

Take three steps back while saying "tzur yisrael" in preparation for the Amidah.

Rock of Israel, arise to the help of Israel, and deliver according to your promise, Judah and Israel. Our Redeemer, the Master of hosts is God's Name, the Holy One of Israel. Blessed are you, Adonai, who has redeemed Israel.

צוּר יִשְׂרָאֵל, קֽוּמָה בְּעֶזְרַת יִשְׂרָאֵל, וּפְדֵה כִנְאֻמֶךָ יְהוּדָה וְיִשְׂרָאֵל. גֹּאֲלֵנוּ יְיָ צְבָאוֹת שְׁמוֹ, קְדוֹשׁ יִשְׂרָאֵל. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ גָּאַל יִשְׂרָאֵל.

Tzur Yisrael צור ישראל

The Amidah

Avot [v'Imahot] [אבות [ואמהות

Rise for the Amidah and face the Ark.

In some communities it is customary to take three steps backward, then three steps forward and remain standing with your feet together through the entire Amidah.

[In some communities, it is customary to insert the names of the matriarchs included here in brackets.]

Bow as you recite Baruch Atah and then straighten up.

Adonai, open my lips, and my mouth will declare Your praise.

Blessed are You, Adonai our God and God of our ancestors: Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, [Sarah, Rebecca, Leah, and Rachel]. The great, mighty and revered God, the most high God, who bestows lovingkindness, and is Master over all things; who remembers the pious deeds of the patriarchs and matriarchs, and in love will redeem us for their sake.

O Sovereign, Helper, Savior and Shield. Blessed are You, Adonai, the Shield of Abraham [and Sarah].

אֲדֹנָי שְׂפָתַי תִּפְתָּח וּפִי יַגִּיד תְּהִלָּתֶךָ.

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ וֵאלֹהֵי אֲבוֹתֵינוּ, אֱלֹהֵי אַבְרָהָם, אֱלֹהֵי יִצְחָק, וֵאלֹהֵי יַעֲקֹב, [אֱלֹהֵי שָּׂרָה, אֱלֹהֵי רִבְקָה, אֱלֹהֵי לֵאָה וֵאלֹהֵי רָחֵל,] הָאֵל הַגָּדוֹל הַגִּבּוֹר וְהַנּוֹרָא, אֵל עֶלְיוֹן, גּוֹמֵל חֲסָדִים טוֹבִים, וְקֹנֵה הַכֹּל, וְזוֹכֵר חַסְדֵי אָבוֹת, וּמֵבִיא גוֹאֵל לִבְנֵי בְנֵיהֶם, לְמַעַן שְׁמוֹ בְּאַהֲבָה.

מֶֽלֶךְ עוֹזֵר וּמוֹשִׁיעַ וּמָגֵן. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, מָגֵן אַבְרָהָם.

G'vurot גבורות

You, O God, are mighty forever, all life is Your gift, and amazing is your saving abilities.

Winter: You cause the wind to blow and the rain to fall.

Summer: You cause the wind to blow and the dew to fall.

You sustain the living with lovingkindness, and revitalize us all with life. You support the falling, cure the sick, free the captive, and keep Your faith with those who sleep in the dust. Who is like You, Doer of mighty acts? Who resembles You, O Sovereign, who dictates between life and death, offering us salvation?

Faithful are You in revitalizing us all with life. Blessed are You, Adonai, Source of all life.

אַתָּה גִּבּוֹר לְעוֹלָם אֲדֹנָי, מְחַיֵּה מֵתִים אַֽתָּה, רַב לְהוֹשִׁיעַ.

In winter say
מַשִּׁיב הָרֽוּחַ וּמוֹרִיד הַגֶּשֶׁם.

In summer say
מַשִּׁיב הָרֽוּחַ וּמוֹרִיד הַטַל.

מְכַלְכֵּל חַיִּים בְּחֶסֶד, מְחַיֵּה מֵתִים בְּרַחֲמִים רַבִּים, סוֹמֵךְ נוֹפְלִים, וְרוֹפֵא חוֹלִים, וּמַתִּיר אֲסוּרִים, וּמְקַיֵּם אֱמוּנָתוֹ לִישֵׁנֵי עָפָר, מִי כָמֽוֹךָ בַּֽעַל גְּבוּרוֹת וּמִי דּֽוֹמֶה לָּךְ, מֶֽלֶךְ מֵמִית וּמְחַיֶּה וּמַצְמִיחַ יְשׁוּעָה.

וְנֶאֱמָן אַתָּה לְהַחֲיוֹת מֵתִים. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, מְחַיֵּה הַמֵּתִים.

During the silent Amidah, continue with "Atah Kadosh".
During the Reader's repetition, "Kedusha" is recited at this point.

Kedushah קדושה

Remain standing with your feet together throughout the entire Kedushah.

Each section is recited by the Community and then repeated by the Chazzan.

In some communities, it is customary to rise up on one's toes when saying the lines "Kadosh, Kadosh, Kadosh," "Baruch K'vod" and "Yimloch Adonai."

We will sanctify Your Name in the world, even as they sanctify It in the highest heavens, as it is written by the hand of Your prophet: And they called to each other and said: holy, holy, holy is Adonai above all. The whole earth radiates God’s glory. Then with a noise of great rushing, mighty and strong, they make their voices heard, and, upraising themselves towards the Seraphim, they exclaim: blessed be the glory of Adonai from high places. From Your place shine forth, O our Sovereign, and reign over us, for we wait for You. When will You reign in Zion? Speedily, even in our days, go dwell there, and stay forever.

May You be magnified and sanctified in the midst of Jerusalem Your city throughout all generations and for all eternity. Let our eyes behold Your greatness, according to the word that was spoken in the songs of Your righteous servant David: Adonai will reign forever, Your God, O Zion, across all generations. Praise Adonai. Across all generations we will declare Your greatness, and for all eternity we will proclaim Your holiness. Your praise, O God, shall never depart from our mouths, for You are a great and holy God and Sovereign. Blessed are You, Adonai, the holy God.

Yismach Moshe ישמח משה

Moses rejoiced at the lot assigned to him, for You called him a faithful servant: You placed a crown of glory upon his head when he stood before You at Mount Sinai. In his hand he brought down the two tablets of stone, on which are written instructions to observe the Sabbath as it says in Your Torah:

יִשְׂמַח מֹשֶׁה בְּמַתְּנַת חֶלְקוֹ, כִּי עֶבֶד נֶאֱמָן קָרָאתָ לּוֹ. כְּלִיל תִּפְאֶרֶת בְּרֹאשׁוֹ נָתַתָּ (לּוֹ), בְּעָמְדוֹ לְפָנֶיךָ עַל הַר סִינָי. וּשְׁנֵי לוּחוֹת אֲבָנִים הוֹרִיד בְּיָדוֹ, וְכָתוּב בָּהֶם שְׁמִירַת שַׁבָּת, וְכֵן כָּתוּב בְּתוֹרָתֶךָ:

V'shamru ושמרו

And the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations, for an everlasting covenant. It is a sign between me and the children of Israel forever, that in six days Adonai made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day rested, and ceased from all work.

וְשָׁמְרוּ בְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל אֶת הַשַּׁבָּת, לַעֲשׂוֹת אֶת הַשַּׁבָּת לְדֹרֹתָם בְּרִית עוֹלָם. בֵּינִי וּבֵין בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל אוֹת הִיא לְעֹלָם, כִּי שֵׁשֶׁת יָמִים עָשָׂה יְיָ אֶת הַשָּׁמַיִם וְאֶת הָאָֽרֶץ, וּבַיּוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי שָׁבַת וַיִּנָּפַשׁ.

V'lo Na'tato ולא נתתו

And you did not bestow it, O Adonai our God, unto the other nations of the earth, nor did you, O our Ruler, make it the heritage of those who worship idols, nor do the unrighteous dwell in its rest; but unto your people Israel you did give it in love, unto the seed of Jacob whom you chose. The people that sanctify the seventh day, even all of them shall be satiated and delighted with your goodness, seeing that you found pleasure in the seventh day, and hallowed it; you called it the desirable of days, in remembrance of the creation.

וְלֹא נְתַתּוֹ יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ לְגוֹיֵי הָאֲרָצוֹת, וְלֹא הִנְחַלְתּוֹ מַלְכֵּנוּ לְעוֹבְדֵי פְסִילִים, וְגַם בִּמְנוּחָתוֹ לֹא יִשְׁכְּנוּ עֲרֵלִים. כִּי לְיִשְׂרָאֵל עַמְּךָ נְתַתּוֹ בְּאַהֲבָה, לְזֶרַע יַעֲקֹב אֲשֶׁר בָּם בָּחָרְתָּ. עַם מְקַדְּשֵׁי שְׁבִיעִי, כֻּלָּם יִשְׂבְּעוּ וְיִתְעַנְּגוּ מִטּוּבֶךָ, וּבַשְּׁבִיעִי רָצִיתָ בּוֹ וְקִדַּשְׁתּוֹ, חֶמְדַּת יָמִים אוֹתוֹ קָרָאתָ, זֵכֶר לְמַעֲשֵׂה בְרֵאשִׁית.

Eloheinu v'Elohei Avoteinu אלהינו ואלהי אבותינו

Our God and God of our ancestors, accept our rest; hallow us by Your mitzvot, and set Your Torah apart for us; satisfy us with Your goodness, and gladden us with Your salvation. Purify our hearts to serve You in truth. In Your love and favour, Adonai our God, let us inherit Your holy Sabbath; and may Israel, who sanctifies Your Name, rest on this day. Blessed are You, Adonai, who hallows the Sabbath.

אֱלֹהֵינוּ וֵאלֹהֵי אֲבוֹתֵינוּ, רְצֵה בִמְנוּחָתֵנוּ, קַדְּשֵׁנוּ בְּמִצְוֹתֶיךָ, וְתֵן חֶלְקֵנוּ בְּתוֹרָתֶךָ, שַׂבְּעֵנוּ מִטּוּבֶךָ, וְשַׂמְּחֵנוּ בִּישׁוּעָתֶךָ, וְטַהֵר לִבֵּנוּ לְעָבְדְּךָ בֶּאֱמֶת, וְהַנְחִילֵנוּ יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ בְּאַהֲבָה וּבְרָצוֹן שַׁבַּת קָדְשֶׁךָ, וְיָנֽוּחוּ בוֹ יִשְׂרָאֵל מְקַדְּשֵׁי שְׁמֶךָ. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, מְקַדֵּשׁ הַשַּׁבָּת.

Retsei רצה

Accept, Adonai our God, Your people Israel and their prayer. Receive in love and favor both the offerings of Israel and their prayer; and may the worship of Your people Israel be forever acceptable to You.

רְצֵה, יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ, בְּעַמְּךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל וּבִתְפִלָּתָם, וְהָשֵׁב אֶת הָעֲבוֹדָה לִדְבִיר בֵּיתֶךָ, וְאִשֵּׁי יִשְׂרָאֵל, וּתְפִלָּתָם בְּאַהֲבָה תְקַבֵּל בְּרָצוֹן, וּתְהִי לְרָצוֹן תָּמִיד עֲבוֹדַת יִשְׂרָאֵל עַמֶּךָ.

V'Techezenah ותחזינה

And let our eyes behold your return in mercy to Zion. Blessed are you, O Adonai, who restores your divine presence unto Zion.

וְתֶחֱזֶינָה עֵינֵינוּ בְּשׁוּבְךָ לְצִיּוֹן בְּרַחֲמִים. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, הַמַּחֲזִיר שְׁכִינָתוֹ לְצִיּוֹן.

Modim מודים

Bow as you recite the words "Modim Anachnu Lach."

We give thanks to You, for You are Adonai our God and the God of our ancestors forever and ever. You are the Rock of our lives, the Shield of our salvation throughout every generation. We give thanks to You and declare Your praise for our lives which are committed to Your service, and for our souls which are in Your control, and for Your miracles which are with us daily, and for Your wonders and Your blessings which are wrought at all times, evening, morning, and afternoon. O You who is all-good, whose mercies never fail; You, merciful Being, whose lovingkindness never ceases, we have place our hope in You.

מוֹדִים אֲנַחְנוּ לָךְ, שָׁאַתָּה הוּא, יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ וֵאלֹהֵי אֲבוֹתֵינוּ, לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד, צוּר חַיֵּינוּ, מָגֵן יִשְׁעֵנוּ, אַתָּה הוּא לְדוֹר וָדוֹר, נֽוֹדֶה לְּךָ וּנְסַפֵּר תְּהִלָּתֶךָ, עַל חַיֵּינוּ הַמְּסוּרִים בְּיָדֶךָ, וְעַל נִשְׁמוֹתֵֽינוּ הַפְּקוּדוֹת לָךְ, וְעַל נִסֶּיךָ שֶׁבְּכָל יוֹם עִמָּנוּ, וְעַל נִפְלְאוֹתֶיךָ וְטוֹבוֹתֶיךָ שֶׁבְּכָל עֵת, עֶרֶב וָבֽקֶר וְצָהֳרָיִם, הַטּוֹב, כִּי לֹא כָלוּ רַחֲמֶיךָ, וְהַמְרַחֵם, כִּי לֹא תַמּוּ חֲסָדֶיךָ, מֵעוֹלָם קִוִּינוּ לָךְ.

This Modim is recited during the repetition of the Amidah, while the Leader recites the Modim above.

We gratefully thank You, for it is You Who is God, our God and the God of all flesh, our Molder, the Molder of the Universe. Blessings and thanks are due Your great and holy Name for You have given us life and sustained us. So may You continue to give us life and sustain us and gather our exiles to the courtyards of Your Sanctuary, to observe Your decrees, to do Your will and serve you with all of our hearts. We give thanks to you for inspiring us to thank You. Blessed is the God of thanksgiving.

מוֹדִים אֲנַֽחְנוּ לָךְ, שָׁאַתָּה הוּא יְיָ אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ וֵאלֹהֵי אֲבוֹתֵֽינוּ, אֱלֹהֵי כָל בָּשָׂר, יוֹצְרֵֽנוּ, יוֹצֵר בְּרֵאשִׁית. בְּרָכוֹת וְהוֹדָאוֹת לְשִׁמְךָ הַגָּדוֹל וְהַקָּדוֹשׁ, עַל שֶׁהֶחֱיִיתָֽנוּ וְקִיַּמְתָּֽנוּ. כֵּן תְּחַיֵּֽנוּ וּתְקַיְּמֵֽנוּ, וְתֶאֱסוֹף גָּלֻיּוֹתֵֽינוּ לְחַצְרוֹת קָדְשֶֽׁךָ, לִשְׁמוֹר חֻקֶּֽיךָ וְלַעֲשׂוֹת רְצוֹנֶֽךָ, וּלְעָבְדְּךָ בְּלֵבָב שָׁלֵם, עַל שֶׁאֲנַֽחְנוּ מוֹדִים לָךְ. בָּרוּךְ אֵל הַהוֹדָאוֹת.

V'al Kulam ועל כלם

Bow as the blessing "HaTov Shimcha" is recited.

For all these, may your Name be blessed and exalted, our Ruler forever and ever.

And everything that lives will give thanks to You forever and praise Your Name in truth, O God, our salvation and our help. (Selah.) Blessed are You, Adonai, whose Name is all good, and to whom it is most appropriate to give thanks.

וְעַל כֻּלָּם יִתְבָּרַךְ וְיִתְרוֹמַם שִׁמְךָ מַלְכֵּנוּ תָּמִיד לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד.

וְכֹל הַחַיִּים יוֹדֽוּךָ סֶּלָה, וִיהַלְלוּ אֶת שִׁמְךָ בֶּאֱמֶת, הָאֵל יְשׁוּעָתֵנוּ וְעֶזְרָתֵנוּ סֶלָה. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, הַטּוֹב שִׁמְךָ וּלְךָ נָאֶה לְהוֹדוֹת.

Sim Shalom שים שלום

Grant peace, welfare, blessing, grace, lovingkindness and mercy to us and all Your people Israel. Bless us with the light of Your countenance; for, by the light of Your countenance, You have given us the Teaching of life, lovingkindness and righteousness, blessing, mercy, life and peace. May it be good in Your sight to bless Your people Israel at all times and in every hour with Your peace. Blessed are You, Adonai our God, who blesses Your people Israel with peace.

Oseh Shalom עשה שלום

Take three steps back and bow to the left, right and center as "Oseh Shalom" is recited.

May the One who makes peace in high places, make peace for us and for all Israel, and let us say: Amen.

עֹשֶׂה שָׁלוֹם בִּמְרוֹמָיו, הוּא יַעֲשֶׂה שָׁלוֹם עָלֵנוּ, וְעַל כָּל יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְאִמְרוּ אָמֵן

Kaddish Shalem קדיש שלם

Kaddish Shalem is recited by the Chazzan, with the community responding amen throughout.

Magnified and sanctified is God’s great name in the world created according to divine will. May God’s majesty reign during your lifetime and throughout your days, and during the life of all the house of Israel, speedily and soon, and let us say, Amen.
Let God’s great Name be blessed forever and for all eternity.

The Torah Reading Service

Ein Kamochah אין כמוך

Rise as the Torah service begins with the singing of Ein Kamocha.

There is none like You among the gods, O Holy One. There are no works like Yours. Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and Your rule will endure throughout all generations
Adonai is Sovereign. Adonai was Sovereign. Adonai shall be Sovereign forever and ever. Adonai will give strength to God’s people. Adonai will bless God’s people with peace.

אֵין כָּמֽוֹךָ בָאֱלֹהִים, יְיָ, וְאֵין כְּמַעֲשֶׂיךָ. מַלְכוּתְךָ מַלְכוּת כָּל עֹלָמִים, וּמֶמְשַׁלְתְּךָ בְּכָל דֹּר וָדֹר. יְיָ מֶלֶךְ, יְיָ מָלָךְ, יְיָ יִמְלֹךְ לְעֹלָם וָעֶד. יְיָ עֹז לְעַמּוֹ יִתֵּן, יְיָ יְבָרֵךְ אֶת עַמּוֹ בַשָּׁלוֹם.

Av Ha-rachamim אב הרחמים

Compassionate One, do good with Zion according to Your will; rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. For we trust you alone, O Ruler, God, exalted and uplifted, Master of Worlds.

אַב הָרַחֲמִים, הֵיטִיבָה בִרְצוֹנְךָ אֶת צִיּוֹן, תִּבְנֶה חוֹמוֹת יְרוּשָׁלָיִם. כִּי בְךָ לְבַד בָּטָחְנוּ, מֶלֶךְ אֵל רָם וְנִשָּׂא, אֲדוֹן עוֹלָמִים.

Vayehi Binsoa ויהי בנסע

Ark is opened as we begin “Vay’hi Binsoa.”

When the Ark set forward, Moses said, Rise up, O Holy One, and my enemies shall be scattered. For out of Zion shall go forth the Law, and the word of Adonai from Jerusalem. Blessed be the One who, in holiness, gave the Torah to the people Israel.

וַיְהִי בִּנְסֽוֹעַ הָאָרֹן וַיּֽאמֶר מֹשֶׁה, קוּמָה, יְיָ, וְיָפֻצוּ אֹיְבֶיךָ, וְיָנֻסוּ מְשַׂנְאֶיךָ מִפָּנֶיךָ. כִּי מִצִּיּוֹן תֵּצֵא תוֹרָה, וּדְבַר יְיָ מִירוּשָׁלָיִם. בָּרוּךְ שֶׁנָּתַן תּוֹרָה לְעַמּוֹ יִשְׂרָאֵל בִּקְדֻשָּׁתוֹ.

Brich Shemei בריך שמה

The following prayer is typically recited silently until "Bei Ana Racheitz."

Blessed be the Name of the Sovereign of the universe. Blessed be your crown and your abiding-place. Let your favor rest with your people Israel for ever: show them the redemption of your might in your holy temple. Bestow upon us the benign gift of your light, and in mercy accept our supplications. May it be your will to prolong our life in well-being. Let me also be numbered among the righteous, so that you may be merciful unto me, and have me in your keeping, with all that belong to me and to your people Israel. You are feed and sustain all; you rule over all; you rule over kings, for dominion is yours. I am the servant of the Holy One, who is blessed, before whom and before whose glorious Torah I prostrate myself at all times: not in humans do I put my trust, nor upon any angel do I rely, but upon the God of heaven, who is the God of truth,and whose (Reader) Teaching is truth, and whose prophets are prophets of truth, and who abounds in deeds of goodness and truth. In God I put my trust, and unto God's holy and glorious Name I utter praises. May it be your will to open my heart unto your Teaching, and to fulfill the wishes of my heart and of the hearts of all your people Israel for good, for life, and for peace. (Amen)

Sh'ma Yisrael שמע ישראל

Remove the Torah scroll from the ark and give it to the service leader.

The leader then faces the congregation as these two lines are recited responsively.

Hear, O Israel, Adonai is our God; Adonai is One.

ONE IS OUR GOD; GREAT IS OUR LORD; HOLY IS GOD'S NAME.

שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ, יְיָ אֶחָד.

אֶחָד אֱלֹהֵינוּ גָּדוֹל אֲדוֹנֵנוּ, קָדוֹשׁ וְנוֹרָא שְׁמוֹ.

The leader raises the Torah slightly and the community bows toward the ark as "Gadlu" is recited.

Praise the Holy One with me, and let us exalt the Name together.

גַּדְּלוּ לַייָ אִתִּי, וּנְרוֹמְמָה שְׁמוֹ יַחְדָּו.

The procession of the Torah to the reading table begins.

Lecha Adonai Hagedulah & Procession with the Torah לך יי הגדלה

The service leader turns to the right walks around the community, carrying the Torah to the reading table as the community responds:

Yours, Adonai, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is yours; yours, Adonai, is the kingdom, and the supremacy as head over all. Exalt Adonai our God, and worship in God's temple: holy is Adonai. Exalt Adonai our God, and worship at God's holy mount; for Adonai our God is holy.

Magnified and hallowed, praised and glorified, exalted and extolled above all be the Name of the Supreme Ruler of Rulers, the holy One, who is blessed, in the worlds which God created,—this world and the world to come,—in accordance with God's desire, and with the desire of them that fear God, and of all the house of Israel: the Rock everlasting, the God of all creatures, the God of all souls; who dwells in the wide-extended heights, who inhabits the heaven of heavens of old; whose holiness is above the Chayoth and above the throne of glory. Now,therefore, your Name, Adonai our God, shall be hallowed amongst us in the sight of all living. Let us sing a new song before God, as it is written, Sing unto God, sing praises unto God's Name, extol God who rides upon the heavens, whose name is Adonai, and rejoice before God. And may we see Gpd, eye to eye, when God returns to God's habitation, as it is written, For they shall see eye to eye, when Adonai returns unto Zion. And it is said, And the glory of Adonai shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together; for the mouth of God has spoken it.

May the compassionate One have mercy on the nation born by Them, and may They remember the covenant of the spiritually mighty. May the One rescue our souls from bad times, scold the Evil Inclination to leave those borne by the One, graciously make us an eternal remnant, and fulfill our requests in good measure for redemption and mercy.

Blessing of Torah Before Reading

The scroll of the Torah is undressed and placed upon the reading table.

The service leader calls upon each person receiving an aliyah by his/her hebrew name followed by their father/mother's name.

When called to the Torah, the service leader will point to where the upcoming reading of the Torah begins. Traditionally, the person receiving the aliyah will then touch the corner of their tallit or a piece of the Torah dressing to the margin of the upcoming reading.

Those who are called to the Torah for an Aliyah (the honor of blessing the Torah before and after the reading of the Scroll) say the following blessing before beginning:

Blessed is Adonai who is to be praised.

Blessed is Adonai who is to praised for ever and ever.

Blessed are you Adonai our God, Ruler of the universe who chose us from all the nations and gave us your Torah. Blessed are you Adonai, Giver of the Torah.

בָּרְכוּ אֶת יְיָ הַמְבֹרָךְ.

בָּרוּךְ יְיָ הַמְבֹרָךְ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד.

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, אֲשֶׁר בָּחַר בָּנוּ מִכָּל הָעַמִּים וְנָתַן לָנוּ אֶת תּוֹרָתוֹ. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, נוֹתֵן הַתּוֹרָה.

Blessing of the Torah After the Reading

After the Torah portion is read, the person called for the aliyah recites the following:

Blessed are you Adonai our God, Ruler of the universe who gave us a Torah of truth and through it gave us eternal life. Blessed are you Adonai, Giver of the Torah.

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, אֲשֶׁר נָתַן לָנוּ תּוֹרַת אֱמֶת, וְחַיֵּי עוֹלָם נָטַע בְּתוֹכֵנוּ. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, נוֹתֵן הַתּוֹרָה.

Mi Shebeirach מי שברך

God Who blessed our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Moses and Aaron, David and Solomon - may God bless and heal the sick person (name) son/daughter of (mother's name) because (name w/ mother's name) will contribute to charity on his/her behalf. In reward for this, may the Holy One be filled with compassion for him/her to restore his/her health, to heal, strengthen and revivify him/her. And may God send him a complete recovery from heaven for his/her 248 organs and 365 blood vessels, among the other sick people of Israel, a recovery of the body and spirit (though Shabbat/the Festival does not let us cry out, may a recovery come quickly) swiftly and soon. And let us say, Amen.

Chatzi Kaddish חצי קדיש

The Chatzi Kaddish is recited by the Chazzan, with the community responding amen throughout.

Magnified and sanctified be God's great Name in the world which God hath created according to God's will. May God establish God's kingdom during your life and during your days, and during the life of all the house of Israel, even speedily and at a near time, and say you, Amen.

Comm. and Reader.—Let God's great Name be blessed for ever and to all eternity.

Reader.—Blessed, praised and glorified, exalted, extolled and honored, magnified and lauded be the Name of the Holy One, who should be blessed; though God be high above all the blessings and hymns, praises and consolations, which are uttered in the world; and say you, Amen.

(Recited by the Chazzan and community in unison)
יְהֵא שְׁמֵהּ רַבָּא מְבָרַךְ לְעָלַם וּלְעָלְמֵי עָלְמַיָּא.
יִתְבָּרַךְ וְיִשְׁתַּבַּח וְיִתְפָּאַר וְיִתְרוֹמַם וְיִתְנַשֵּׂא וְיִתְהַדָּר וְיִתְעַלֶּה וְיִתְהַלָּל שְׁמֵהּ דְּקֻדְשָׁא בְּרִיךְ הוּא, לְעֵֽלָּא מִן כָּל בִּרְכָתָא וְשִׁירָתָא תֻּשְׁבְּחָתָא וְנֶחֱמָתָא, דַּאֲמִירָן בְּעָלְמָא, וְאִמְרוּ אָמֵן.

Haggbah (Raising the Torah) הגבה

The Torah scroll is raised for the congregation to see, exposing at least 3 columns in the scroll. While the Torah is raised, all say:

And this is the Torah which Moses set before the children of Israel, according to the commandment of Adonai by the hand of Moses.

It is a tree of life to them that grasp it, and of them that uphold it every one is rendered happy. Its ways are ways of pleasantness, and all its paths are peace. Length of days is in its right hand; in its left hand are riches and honor. It pleased Adonai, for God's righteousness’ sake, to magnify the Law and to glorify it.

וְזֹאת הַתּוֹרָה אֲשֶׁר שָׂם מֹשֶׁה לִפְנֵי בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, עַל פִּי יְיָ בְּיַד משֶׁה.

עֵץ חַיִּים הִיא לַמַּחֲזִיקִים בָּהּ, וְתֹמְכֶיהָ מְאֻשָּׁר. דְּרָכֶיהָ דַרְכֵי נֹעַם, וְכָל נְתִיבוֹתֶיהָ שָׁלוֹם. אֹרֶךְ יָמִים בִּימִינָהּ, בִּשְׂמֹאלָהּ עֹֽשֶׁר וְכָבוֹד. יְיָ חָפֵץ לְמַעַן צִדְקוֹ, יַגְדִּיל תּוֹרָה וְיַאְדִּיר.

The Torah is redressed with the tye, cover, and crown in preparation for the Haftarah reading.

Blessing of the Haftorah Before Reading

This blessing is recited by the individual who will recite the Haftarah for the community.

Blessed are you, Adonai our God, Ruler of the universe, who has chosen good prophets, and has found pleasure in their words which were spoken in truth. Blessed are you, Adonai, who has chosen the Torah, and Moses your servant, and Israel your people, and prophets of truth and righteousness.

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, אֲשֶׁר בָּחַר בִּנְבִיאִים טוֹבִים, וְרָצָה בְדִבְרֵיהֶם הַנֶּאֱמָרִים בֶּאֱמֶת, בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, הַבּוֹחֵר בַּתּוֹרָה וּבְמֹשֶׁה עַבְדּוֹ, וּבְיִשְׂרָאֵל עַמּוֹ, וּבִנְבִיאֵי הָאֱמֶת וָצֶדֶק.

The Haftarah portion is read in Hebrew or English.

Blessing of the Haftorah After the Reading

After the reading of the Haftorah, the following blessings are recited.

Blessed are you, Adonai, our God, Ruler of the universe, Rock of all worlds, righteous through all generations, O faithful God, who says and does, who speaks and fulfills, all whose words are truth and righteousness. Faithful are you, Adonai our God, and faithful are your words, and not one of your words shall return void, for you are a faithful and merciful God and Ruler. Blessed are you, Adonai, God, who is faithful in all your words.

Have mercy upon Zion, for it is the home of our life, and save her that is grieved in spirit speedily, even in our days. Blessed are you, Adonai, who makes Zion joyful through her children.

Gladden us, Adonai our God, with Elijah the prophet, your servant, and with the kingdom of the house of David, your anointed. Soon may he come and rejoice our hearts. Suffer not a stranger to sit upon his throne, nor let others any longer inherit his glory; for by your holy Name you swore unto him, that his light should not be quenched for ever. Blessed are you, Adonai, the Shield of David.

For the Torah, for the divine service, for the prophets, and for this Sabbath day, which you, Adonai, our God, has given us for holiness and for rest, for honor and for glory,—for all these we thank and bless you, Adonai our God, blessed be your Name by the mouth of every living being continually and for ever. Blessed are you, Adonai, who hallows the Sabbath.

Ashrei אשרי

I will extol you, my God, O Sovereign; and I will bless your Name for ever and ever. Every day will I bless you; and I will praise your Name for ever and ever. Great is Adonai, and exceedingly to be praised: and God's greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall laud your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts. On the majestic glory of your splendor, and on your marvelous deeds, will I meditate. And people shall speak of the might of your tremendous acts; and I will recount your greatness. They shall pour forth the fame of your great goodness, and shall exult in your righteousness. Adonai is gracious and merciful; slow to anger and of great lovingkindness. Adonai is good to all; and God's tender mercies are over all God's works. All your works shall give thanks unto you, Adonai; and your loving ones shall bless thee. They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom, and talk of your power; to make known to the human beings God's mighty acts, and the majestic glory of God's kingdom. Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures throughout all generations. Adonai upholds all that fall, and raises up all those that are bowed down. The eyes of all wait upon you; and you give them their food in due season. You open your hand, and satisfy every living thing with favor. Adonai is righteous in all ways, and loving in all works. Adonai is close unto all them that call upon God, to all that call upon God in truth. Adonai will fulfill the desire of them that revere God; God also will hear their cry, and will save them. Adonai guards all those that love God; but all the wicked will God destroy.(Reader) My mouth shall speak of the praise of Adonai; and let all flesh bless God's holy Name for ever and ever.

But we will bless Adonai from this time forth and for evermore. Praise Adonai.

Yehallelu יהללו

Service leader takes the Torah and recites the following as the community rises:

Let them praise the Name of Adonai; for God's Name alone is exalted:

God's majesty is above the earth and heaven; and God exalts the power of God's people, to the praise of all God's loving ones, even of the children of Israel, the people near unto God. Praise Adonai.

יְהַלְלוּ אֶת שֵׁם יְיָ, כִּי נִשְׂגָּב שְׁמוֹ לְבַדּוֹ.

(All respond) הוֹדוֹ עַל אֶֽרֶץ וְשָׁמָֽיִם. וַיָּֽרֶם קֶרֶן לְעַמּוֹ, תְּהִלָּה לְכָל חֲסִידָיו, לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל עַם קְרוֹבוֹ, הַלְלוּיָהּ.

Mizmor l'David מזמור לדוד

As the Torah is carried to the Ark, the community recites the following:

A psalm of David. Ascribe unto Adonai, O you children of might, ascribe unto Adonai glory and strength. Ascribe unto Adonai the glory due unto God's Name; worship Adonai in the beauty of holiness. The voice of Adonai is upon the waters: the God of glory thunders, even God upon the many waters. The voice of Adonai is powerful; the voice of God is full of majesty. The voice of God breaks the cedars; yes, Adonai breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon. God makes them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild-ox. The voice of Adonai hews out flames of fire; the voice of Adonai shakes the wilderness; Adonai shakes the wilderness of Kadesh. The voice of God makes the hind to calve, and strips the forests bare: and in God's temple everything says, Glory. Adonai sat enthroned at the Flood; yes, Adonai sits as Sovereign for ever. Adonai will give strength unto God's people; Adonai will bless God's people with peace.

מִזְמוֹר לְדָוִד, הָבוּ לַייָ בְּנֵי אֵלִים, הָבוּ לַייָ כָּבוֹד וָעֹז. הָבוּ לַייָ כְּבוֹד שְׁמוֹ, הִשְׁתַּחֲווּ לַייָ בְּהַדְרַת קֽדֶשׁ. קוֹל יְיָ עַל הַמָּיִם, אֵל הַכָּבוֹד הִרְעִים, יְיָ עַל מַיִם רַבִּים. קוֹל יְיָ בַּכּֽחַ, קוֹל יְיָ בֶּהָדָר. קוֹל יְיָ שֹׁבֵר אֲרָזִים, וַיְשַׁבֵּר יְיָ אֶת אַרְזֵי הַלְּבָנוֹן. וַיַּרְקִידֵם כְּמוֹ עֵגֶל, לְבָנוֹן וְשִׂרְיוֹן כְּמוֹ בֶן רְאֵמִים. קוֹל יְיָ חֹצֵב לַהֲבוֹת אֵשׁ. קוֹל יְיָ יָחִיל מִדְבָּר, יָחִיל יְיָ מִדְבַּר קָדֵשׁ. קוֹל יְיָ יְחוֹלֵל אַיָּלוֹת וַיֶּחֱשֹׂף יְעָרוֹת, וּבְהֵיכָלוֹ כֻּלּוֹ אֹמֵר כָּבוֹד. יְיָ לַמַּבּוּל יָשָׁב, וַיֵּשֶׁב יְיָ מֶלֶךְ לְעוֹלָם. יְיָ עֹז לְעַמּוֹ יִתֵּן, יְיָ יְבָרֵךְ אֶת עַמּוֹ בַשָּׁלוֹם.

U'Venucha Yomar ובנחה יאמר

As the Torah is placed into the Ark, the community recites the following:

And when it rested, he said, Return, Adonai, unto the ten thousands of the families of Israel. Arise, Adonai, unto your resting place; you, and the ark of your strength. Let your priests be clothed with righteousness; and let your loving ones shout for joy. For the sake of David your servant, turn not away the face of your anointed. For I give you good doctrine; forsake not my Teaching.

(Reader) It is a tree of life to them that grasp it, and of them that uphold it every one is rendered happy. Its ways are ways of pleasantness, and all its paths are peace. Turn us unto you, Adonai, and we shall return: renew our days as of old.

וּבְנֻחֹה יֹאמַר, שׁוּבָה, יְיָ, רִבְבוֹת אַלְפֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל. קוּמָה יְיָ לִמְנוּחָתֶךָ, אַתָּה וַאֲרוֹן עֻזֶּךָ. כֹּהֲנֶיךָ יִלְבְּשׁוּ צֶדֶק, וַחֲסִידֶיךָ יְרַנֵּנוּ. בַּעֲבוּר דָּוִד עַבְדֶּךָ, אַל תָּשֵׁב פְּנֵי מְשִׁיחֶךָ. כִּי לֶקַח טוֹב נָתַתִּי לָכֶם, תּוֹרָתִי אַל תַּעֲזֹבוּ.

(Reader) עֵץ חַיִּים הִיא לַמַּחֲזִיקִים בָּהּ, וְתֹמְכֶיהָ מְאֻשָּׁר. דְּרָכֶיהָ דַרְכֵי נֽעַם, וְכָל נְתִיבוֹתֶיהָ שָׁלוֹם. הֲשִׁיבֵנוּ יְיָ אֵלֶיךָ וְנָשֽׁוּבָה, חַדֵּשׁ יָמֵינוּ כְּקֶדֶם.

Musaf

Chatzi Kaddish חצי קדיש

The Chatzi Kaddish is recited by the Chazzan, with the community responding amen throughout.

Magnified and sanctified be God's great Name in the world which God created according to God's will. May God establish God's kingdom during your life and during your days, and during the life of all the house of Israel, even speedily and at a near time, and say you, Amen.

Let God's great Name be blessed for ever and to all eternity.

Blessed, praised and glorified, exalted, extolled and honored, magnified and lauded be the Name of the Holy One, who should be blessed; though God is high above all the blessings and hymns, praises and consolations, which are uttered in the world; and say you, Amen.

יִתְגַּדַּל וְיִתְקַדַּשׁ שְׁמֵהּ רַבָּא. בְּעָלְמָא דִּי בְרָא כִרְעוּתֵהּ, וְיַמְלִיךְ מַלְכוּתֵהּ בְּחַיֵּיכוֹן וּבְיוֹמֵיכוֹן וּבְחַיֵּי דְכָל בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל, בַּעֲגָלָא וּבִזְמַן קָרִיב, וְאִמְרוּ אָמֵן.
(Recited by the Chazzan and community in unison)
יְהֵא שְׁמֵהּ רַבָּא מְבָרַךְ לְעָלַם וּלְעָלְמֵי עָלְמַיָּא.
יִתְבָּרַךְ וְיִשְׁתַּבַּח וְיִתְפָּאַר וְיִתְרוֹמַם וְיִתְנַשֵּׂא וְיִתְהַדָּר וְיִתְעַלֶּה וְיִתְהַלָּל שְׁמֵהּ דְּקֻדְשָׁא בְּרִיךְ הוּא, לְעֵֽלָּא מִן כָּל בִּרְכָתָא וְשִׁירָתָא תֻּשְׁבְּחָתָא וְנֶחֱמָתָא, דַּאֲמִירָן בְּעָלְמָא, וְאִמְרוּ אָמֵן.

Avot אבות

Some communities choose to include the matriarchs in this prayer as well. They have been added in brackets.

Take three steps back and three steps forward while reciting "Adonai S'fatai tiftach"

Bow when reciting the "Baruch Atah" in the first blessing as well as when reciting the blessing "Magen Avraham."

Adonai, open my lips, and my mouth shall declare your praise.

Blessed are you, Adonai, our God and God of our ancestors, God of Abraham, God of Isaac, and God of Jacob, [Sarah, Rebecca, Leah, and Rachel,] the great, mighty and revered God, the most high God, who bestowes lovingkindnesses, and is Ruler of all things; who remembers the pious deeds of our ancestors, and in love will bring a redeemer to their children’s children for your Name’s sake.
O Sovereign, Helper, Savior and Shield. Blessed are you, Adonai, the Shield of Abraham [and Helper of Sarah.]

כִּי שֵׁם יְיָ אֶקְרָא, הָבוּ גֹֽדֶל לֵאלֹהֵינוּ.

G'vurot גבורות

You, O God, are mighty forever, all life is Your gift, and amazing is your saving abilities.

Winter: You cause the wind to blow and the rain to fall.

Summer: You cause the wind to blow and the dew to fall.

You sustain the living with lovingkindness, and revitalize us all with life. You support the falling, cure the sick, free the captive, and keep Your faith with those who sleep in the dust. Who is like You, Doer of mighty acts? Who resembles You, O Sovereign, who dictates between life and death, offering us salvation?

Faithful are You in revitalizing us all with life. Blessed are You, Adonai, Source of all life.

אַתָּה גִּבּוֹר לְעוֹלָם אֲדֹנָי, מְחַיֵּה מֵתִים אַֽתָּה, רַב לְהוֹשִׁיעַ.

In winter say
מַשִּׁיב הָרֽוּחַ וּמוֹרִיד הַגֶּשֶׁם.

In summer say
מַשִּׁיב הָרֽוּחַ וּמוֹרִיד הַטַל.

מְכַלְכֵּל חַיִּים בְּחֶסֶד, מְחַיֵּה מֵתִים בְּרַחֲמִים רַבִּים, סוֹמֵךְ נוֹפְלִים, וְרוֹפֵא חוֹלִים, וּמַתִּיר אֲסוּרִים, וּמְקַיֵּם אֱמוּנָתוֹ לִישֵׁנֵי עָפָר, מִי כָמֽוֹךָ בַּֽעַל גְּבוּרוֹת וּמִי דּֽוֹמֶה לָּךְ, מֶֽלֶךְ מֵמִית וּמְחַיֶּה וּמַצְמִיחַ יְשׁוּעָה.

וְנֶאֱמָן אַתָּה לְהַחֲיוֹת מֵתִים. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, מְחַיֵּה הַמֵּתִים.

During the silent Amidah, continue with "Atah Kadosh".
During the Reader's repetition, "Kedusha" is recited at this point.

Kedusha קדושה

Remain standing with your feet together throughout the entire Kedushah.

Each section is recited by the Community and then repeated by the Chazzan.

In some communities, it is customary to rise up on one's toes when saying the lines "Kadosh, Kadosh, Kadosh," "Baruch K'vod" and "Yimloch Adonai."

Reader.—We will revere and sanctify you according to the mystic utterance of the holy Seraphim, who sanctify your Name in holiness, as it is written by the hand of your prophet, And they called one unto the other and said,

Cong.—HOLY, HOLY, HOLY IS ADONAI OF HOSTS: THE WHOLE EARTH IS FULL OF GOD'S GLORY.

Reader.—God's glory fills the universe: God's ministering angels ask one another, Where is the place of God's glory? Those over against them say, Blessed—

Cong.—BLESSED BE THE GLORY OF ADONAI FROM GOD'S PLACE.

Reader.—From God's place may Adonai turn in mercy and be gracious unto a people who, evening and morning, twice every day, proclaim with constancy the unity of God's Name, saying in love, Hear—

Cong.—HEAR, O ISRAEL: ADONAI IS OUR GOD, ADONAI IS ONE.

Reader.—One is our God; Adonai is our Parent; Adonai is our King; Adonai is our Savior; and God in mercy will let us hear a second time, in the presence of all living (God's promise), “To be to you for a God.”

Cong.—I AM ADONAI YOUR GOD.”

Reader.—And in your Holy Words it is written, saying,

Cong.—ADONAI SHALL REIGN FOR EVER, YOUR GOD, O ZION, UNTO ALL GENERATIONS. PRAISE ADONAI.

Reader.—Unto all generations we will declare your greatness, and to all eternity we will proclaim your holiness, and your praise, O our God, shall not depart from our mouth for ever, for you are a great and holy God and Ruler. Blessed are you, O Adonai, the holy God.

You are holy, and Your Name is holy, and the holy praise You daily. Blessed are You, Adonai, the holy God.

Tikantah Shabbat תכנת שבת

You instituted the Sabbath, and favorably accepted its offerings; you commanded its special duties with the order of its drink offerings. They that delight in it shall inherit everlasting glory; they that enjoy its happiness merit eternal life; while such as love its teachings have chosen true greatness. Already from Sinai they were commanded concerning it; and you have also commanded us, O Adonai our God, to bring the additional offering of the Sabbath in due form. May it be your will, O Adonai our God and God of our ancestors, to lead us in joy unto our land, and to plant us within our borders, where we will prepare unto you the offerings that are obligatory for us, the daily offerings according to their rule; and the additional offering of this Sabbath day we will prepare and offer up unto you in love, according to the behest of your will, as you have prescribed for us in yourTorah through Moses your servant, from the mouth of your glory, as it is said:

תִּכַּנְתָּ שַׁבָּת, רָצִיתָ קָרְבְּנוֹתֶיהָ, צִוּֽיתָ פֵּרוּשֶׁיהָ עִם סִדּוּרֵי נְסָכֶיהָ. מְעַנְּגֶיהָ לְעוֹלָם כָּבוֹד יִנְחָלוּ, טוֹעֲמֶיהָ חַיִּים זָכוּ, וְגַם הָאוֹהֲבִים דְּבָרֶיהָ גְּדֻלָּה בָּחָרוּ, אָז מִסִּינַי נִצְטַוּוּ עָלֶיהָ. וַתְּצַוֵּנוּ, יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ, לְהַקְרִיב בָּהּ קָרְבַּן מוּסַף שַׁבָּת כָּרָאוּי. יְהִי רָצוֹן מִלְּפָנֶיךָ, יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ וֵאלֹהֵי אֲבוֹתֵינוּ, שֶׁתַּעֲלֵנוּ בְשִׂמְחָה לְאַרְצֵנוּ, וְתִטָּעֵֽנוּ בִּגְבוּלֵנוּ, וְשָׁם נַעֲשֶׂה לְפָנֶיךָ אֶת קָרְבְּנוֹת חוֹבוֹתֵינוּ, תְּמִידִים כְּסִדְרָם וּמוּסָפִים כְּהִלְכָתָם. וְאֶת מוּסַף יוֹם הַשַּׁבָּת הַזֶּה, נַעֲשֶׂה וְנַקְרִיב לְפָנֶיךָ בְּאַהֲבָה, כְּמִצְוַת רְצוֹנֶֽךָ, כְּמוֹ שֶׁכָּתַבְתָּ עָלֵֽינוּ בְּתוֹרָתֶךָ, עַל יְדֵי מֹשֶׁה עַבְדֶּךָ, מִפִּי כְבוֹדֶךָ, כָּאָמוּר:

Atah Yatzartah אתה יצרת

On Shabbat-Rosh Chodesh, this paragraph is recited as a substitute for "Tikantah Shabbat."

You formed your world from of old; you finished your work on the seventh day; you loved us and took pleasure in us, exalted us above all nations, hallowed us by your commandments, brought us near, O our Sovereign, unto your service, and called us by your great and holy Name. You, O Adonai our God, also gave us in love Sabbaths for rest and New Moons for atonement. But because we sinned against you, both we and our ancestors, our city has been laid waste, our sanctuary is desolate, our splendor has gone into exile, and the glory has been removed from the house of our life, so that we are not able to perform our obligations in your chosen house, in that great and holy house which was called by your Name, because of the hand of violence that has been laid upon your sanctuary. May it be your will, O Adonai our God and God of our ancestors, to lead us up in joy unto our land, and to plant us within our borders, where we will prepare unto you the offerings that are obligatory for us, the daily offerings according to their order, and the additional offerings according to their rule; and the additional offerings of this Sabbath day and of this New Moon we will prepare and offer up unto you in love, according to the behest of your will, as you prescribed for us in your Torah through Moses your servant, from the mouth of your glory, as it is said:

And on the Sabbath day two he-lambs of the first year without blemish, and two tenth parts of an ephah of fine flour for a meal offering, mingled with oil, and the drink offering thereof: this is the burnt offering of every Sabbath, beside the daily burnt offering and the drink offering thereof.

And in the beginnings of your months you shall offer a burnt offering unto Adonai; two young bullocks and one ram, seven he-lambs of the first year without blemish. And their meal offering and their drink offerings as has been ordained, three tenth parts of an ephah for each bullock, and two tenth parts for the ram, and one tenth part for each lamb, with wine according to the drink offering thereof, and a he-goat wherewith to make atonement, and the two daily offerings according to their enactment.

They that keep the Sabbath and call it a delight shall rejoice in your kingdom; the people that hallow the seventh day, even all of them shall be satiated and delighted with your goodness, seeing that you found pleasure in the seventh day, and hallowed it; you called it the desirable of days, in remembrance of the creation.

Our God and God of our ancestors, accept our rest; hallow us by your commandments, and grant our portion in your Torah; satisfy us with your goodness, and gladden us with your salvation; purify our hearts to serve you in truth; and in your love and favor, O Adonai our God, let us inherit your holy Sabbath; and may Israel, who sanctifies your Name, rest thereon. Blessed are you, Adonai, who hallows the Sabbath.

Retsei רצה

Accept, Adonai our God, your people Israel and their prayer; restore the service to the inner sanctuary of your house; receive in love and favor both the fire offerings of Israel and their prayer; and may the service of your people Israel be ever acceptable unto you.

And let our eyes behold your return in mercy to Zion. Blessed are you, Adonai, who restores your divine presence unto Zion.

V'Al Kulam ועל כלם

For all these, may your Name be blessed and exalted, our Ruler forever and ever.

And everything that lives will give thanks to You forever and praise Your Name in truth, O God, our salvation and our help. (Selah.) Blessed are You, Adonai, whose Name is all good, and to whom it is most appropriate to give thanks.

וְעַל כֻּלָּם יִתְבָּרַךְ וְיִתְרוֹמַם שִׁמְךָ מַלְכֵּנוּ תָּמִיד לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד.

Aleinu עלינו

Rise for Aleinu.

It is customary to bow at “va-anachnu korim” and stand up at “modim.”

It is our duty to praise the Ruler of all things, to ascribe greatness to the One who formed the world in the beginning. So we bend the knee and offer worship and thanks before the supreme Sovereign of sovereigns, the Holy One, who stretched forth the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth, the seat of whose glory is in the heavens above, and the residence of whose might is in the loftiest heights. Adonai is our God; there is none else: in truth Adonai is our Ruler; there is none else; as it is written in the Torah: “And you shall know this day, and lay it to your heart, that Adonai is God in heaven above and upon the earth beneath: there is none else."

We therefore place our hope in You, Adonai our God, that we may speedily behold the glory of Your might, when You will purify the earth, and righteousness will dominate. When the world will be perfected under the rule of the Almighty, and all the world’s children will call Your Name. When You will turn to Yourself all the evil-doers upon earth. Let all the inhabitants of the world perceive and know that to You every knee must bow, every tongue must swear allegiance. Before You, Adonai our God, let them bow and worship, and to Your glorious Name let them give honor. Let them all accept You and have You reign over them speedily, and forever and ever. The dominion is Yours, and for all eternity You will reign in glory. As it is written in Your Torah, “Adonai shall reign forever and ever.” And it is said, “Adonai shall be ruler over all the Earth: in that day, Adonai shall be One and God’s name shall be One.”

Al Tirah אל תירא

Do not fear sudden terror, or the holocaust of the wicked when it arrives. Plan a conspiracy and it will be annulled; speak your piece and it shall not stand, for God is with us. Even until your seniority, I remain unchanged; and even until your ripe old age, I shall endure. I created you and I shall bear you; I shall endure and rescue.

Mourner's Kaddish קדיש יתום

In some communities, only those in mourning or observing a yartzheit stand and recite the Mourner’s Kaddish. However, particularly since the Holocaust, some communities have developed the practice of everyone present reciting the Kaddish on behalf of those who have no one left to say Kaddish for them.

Therefore, each individual should stand or sit as is their personal custom.

The community responds amen throughout.

Mourner.—Magnified and sanctified be God's great Name in the world which God created according to God's will. May God establish God's kingdom during your life and during your days, and during the life of all the house of Israel, even speedily and at a near time and say you, Amen.
Cong. and Mourner.—Let God's great Name be blessed forever and to all eternity.

I shall compose pleasant psalms and weave hymns because for You shall my soul pine.

As I speak of Your glory, my heart yearns for Your love.

Therefore I shall speak of Your glories, and Your Name I shall honor with loving songs.

I shall relate Your glory though I see You not; I shall allegorize You, I shall describe You, though i know You not.

Through the hand of Your prophets, through the counsel of Your servants; You allegorized the splendrous glory of Your power.

Your greatness and strength, thehy described the might of Your works.

They allegorized You, but not according to Your reality, and they portrayed You according to Your deeds.

They symbolized You in many varied visions; yet You are a Unity containing all the allegories.

They envisioned in You agedness and virility and the hair of Your head as hoary and jet black.

Aged on judgment day and virile on the day of battle, like a man of war whose powers are many.

The hat of salvation was put on God's head; salvation for God, with God's right hand and arm.

With illuminating dew drops God's head is filled, his locks are the rains of the night.

God shall glory in me for God desires me, and God shall be for me a crown of pride.

A form of the very finest gold upon his head, and carved on his forehead in God's glorious, sacred Name.

For grace and glory the pride of God's splendor; God's nation crowns with prayers.

The tresses of God's head are like those of youthful days, His locks are jet black ringlets.

The Abode of righteousness is the pride of God's splendor; may it be elevated to God's foremost joy.

May God's treasured nation be in hand like a crown, and like a royal tiara the pride of God's splendor.

From infancy God bore them and affixed them as a crown because they are precious in God's eyes and were honored.

God's tefillin-splendor is upon me and my tefillin-splendor is upon God, and God is near to me when I call.

God is white and crimson, garments will be bloody red, when God tramples as in a press on the coming from Edom.

He showed the tefillin-knot to the humble [Moses], the likeness of God before his eyes.

God desires His people and will glorify the humble; enthroned upon praises, God glories with them.

The very beginning of Your word is truth - one read it from the Torah's start; the people that seeks You expounds each generation's fate.

Place the multitude of my songs before You, please; and my glad song bring near to You.

May my praise be a crown for Your head, and may my prayer be accepted like incense.

May the poor man's song be dear in Your eyes, like the song that is sung over Your offerings.

May my blessing rise up upon the head of the Sustainer - Creator, Giver of life, mighty Righteous One.

And to my blessing, nod Your head to me, and take it to Yourself like the finest incense.

May y prayer be sweet to You, for my soul shall pine for you.

Who can express the mighty acts of God? Who can declare all his praise?

Shir Shel Yom: Mizmor Shir l'Yom ha-Shabbat שיר של יום: מזמור שיר ליום השבת

A Psalm, a Song for the Sabbath Day.
It is a good thing to give thanks to Adonai, and to sing praises unto your Name, O Most High: to declare your lovingkindness in the morning, and your faithfulness every night, with an instrument of ten strings and with a harp, with solemn music upon the lyre. For you, Adonai, have made me rejoice through your work: I will exult in the works of your hands. How great are your works, Adonai: your thoughts are very deep. A brutish man knows it not, neither does a fool understand this: when the wicked sprang up as the grass, and all the workers of iniquity flourished, it was that they might be destroyed forever. But you, Adonai, are on high forevermore. For your enemies, Adonai, for your enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered. But my strength you have exalted, like that of the wild-ox: I am anointed with fresh oil. My eye also has seen the defeat of my enemies; my ears have heard the doom of those that rose up against me, doers of evil. (Reader) The righteous shall spring up like a palm-tree; they shall grow tall like a cedar in Lebanon. Planted in the house of Adonai, they shall blossom in the courts of our God. They shall still shoot forth in old age; they shall be full of sap and green: to declare that Adonai is upright; God is my Rock, and there is no unrighteousness in God.

מִזְמוֹר שִׁיר לְיוֹם הַשַּׁבָּת. טוֹב לְהֹדוֹת לַייָ, וּלְזַמֵּר לְשִׁמְךָ עֶלְיוֹן. לְהַגִּיד בַּבֹּֽקֶר חַסְדֶּךָ, וֶאֱמוּנָתְךָ בַּלֵּילוֹת. עֲלֵי עָשׂוֹר וַעֲלֵי נָבֶל, עֲלֵי הִגָּיוֹן בְּכִנּוֹר. כִּי שִׂמַּחְתַּנִי יְיָ בְּפָעֳלֶֽךָ, בְּמַעֲשֵׂי יָדֶיךָ אֲרַנֵּן. מַה גָּדְלוּ מַעֲשֶׂיךָ יְיָ, מְאֹד עָמְקוּ מַחְשְׁבֹתֶיךָ. אִישׁ בַּעַר לֹא יֵדָע, וּכְסִיל לֹא יָבִין אֶת זֹאת. בִּפְרֹחַ רְשָׁעִים כְּמוֹ עֵשֶׂב, וַיָּצֽיצוּ כָּל פֹּֽעֲלֵי אָֽוֶן, לְהִשָּׁמְדָם עֲדֵי עַד. וְאַתָּה מָרוֹם לְעֹלָם יְיָ. כִּי הִנֵּה אֹיְבֶיךָ, יְיָ, כִּי הִנֵּה אֹיְבֶיךָ יֹאבֵדוּ, יִתְפָּרְדוּ כָּל פֹּֽעֲלֵי אָֽוֶן. וַתָּֽרֶם כִּרְאֵים קַרְנִי, בַּלֹּתִי בְּשֶׁמֶן רַעֲנָן. וַתַּבֵּט עֵינִי בְּשׁוּרָי, בַּקָּמִים עָלַי מְרֵעִים תִּשְׁמַעְנָה אָזְנָי. (Reader) צַדִּיק כַּתָּמָר יִפְרָח, כְּאֶרֶז בַּלְּבָנוֹן יִשְׂגֶּה. שְׁתוּלִים בְּבֵית יְיָ, בְּחַצְרוֹת אֱלֹהֵינוּ יַפְרִיחוּ. עוֹד יְנוּבוּן בְּשֵׂיבָה, דְּשֵׁנִים וְרַעֲנַנִּים יִהְיוּ. לְהַגִּיד כִּי יָשָׁר יְיָ, צוּרִי וְלֹא עַוְלָתָה בּוֹ.

L'David Adonai Ori v'Yishi (for Elul) לדוד יי אורי וישעי

This prayer is recited from Rosh Chodesh Elul (the first day of Elul) through the holiday of Shemini Atzeret.

From David; God is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? God is my life's strength, whom shall I dread? When evil people approach me to devour my flesh, my tormentors and my foes against me - it is they who stumble and fall. Though an army would besiege me, my heart would not be afraid; though war would arise against me, in this I trust. One thing I asked of God, that I shall seek: That I dwell in the House of God all the days of my life; to behold the sweetness of God and to contemplate in God's Sanctuary. Indeed, God will hide me in Shelter on the day of evil; I will be concealed in God's tent, God will lift me upon a rock. Now my head is raised above my enemies around me, and I will slaughter offerings in the Tent accompanied by joyous song; I will sing and make music to God. God, head my voice when I call, be gracious toward me an answer me. In Your behalf, my heart has said, 'Seek My Presence'; Your Presence, God, do I seek. Do not hide Your presence from me, repel not your servant in anger. You have been my Helper, abandon me not, forsake me not, O God of my salvation. Though my father and mother have forsaken me, God will take me in. Teach me Your way, God, and lead me on the path of integrity, because of my watchful goes. Deliver me not to the wishes of my tormentors, for there have arisen against me false witnesses who breath violence. Had I not trusted that I would see the goodness of God in the land of life! Hope to God, strengthen yourself and God will give you courage, and hope to God.

יִתְגַּדַּל וְיִתְקַדַּשׁ שְׁמֵהּ רַבָּא. בְּעָלְמָא דִּי בְרָא כִרְעוּתֵהּ, וְיַמְלִיךְ מַלְכוּתֵהּ בְּחַיֵּיכוֹן וּבְיוֹמֵיכוֹן וּבְחַיֵּי דְכָל בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל, בַּעֲגָלָא וּבִזְמַן קָרִיב, וְאִמְרוּ אָמֵן.
(Recited by the mourners and congregation)יְהֵא שְׁמֵהּ רַבָּא מְבָרַךְ לְעָלַם וּלְעָלְמֵי עָלְמַיָּא.
יִתְבָּרַךְ וְיִשְׁתַּבַּח וְיִתְפָּאַר וְיִתְרוֹמַם וְיִתְנַשֵּׂא וְיִתְהַדָּר וְיִתְעַלֶּה וְיִתְהַלָּל שְׁמֵהּ דְּקֻדְשָׁא בְּרִיךְ הוּא, לְעֵֽלָּא מִן בִּרְכָתָא וְשִׁירָתָא תֻּשְׁבְּחָתָא וְנֶחֱמָתָא, דַּאֲמִירָן בְּעָלְמָא, וְאִמְרוּ אָמֵן.

Closing Songs

Ain K'Eloheinu אין כאלהינו

Adon Olam אדון עולם

You are the Eternal God who ruled before the creation. At the time Your will directly determined what occurred, You were already ruling.

אֲדוֹן עוֹלָם אֲשֶׁר מָלַךְ, בְּטֶרֶם כָּל יְצִיר נִבְרָא. לְעֵת נַעֲשָׂה בְחֶפְצוֹ כֹּל, אֲזַי מֶלֶךְ שְׁמוֹ נִקְרָא.

And when all else has failed, You will still reign majestically. You were, You are, You will be in glory.

וְאַחֲרֵי כִּכְלוֹת הַכֹּל, לְבַדּוֹ יִמְלוֹךְ נוֹרָא. וְהוּא הָיָה, וְהוּא הֹוֶה, וְהוּא יִהְיֶה, בְּתִפְאָרָה.

You are only One. You do not rely upon or compare with any other. You exist without beginning or end. You know power that cannot be seen or experienced elsewhere.

וְהוּא אֶחָד וְאֵין שֵׁנִי, לְהַמְשִׁיל לוֹ לְהַחְבִּֽירָה. בְּלִי רֵאשִׁית בְּלִי תַכְלִית,
וְלוֹ הָעֹז וְהַמִּשְׂרָה.

You are my God. You are my Redeemer; my Rock when I am distressed; my confidence; my protection; my aide when I call on You.

וְהוּא אֵלִי וְחַי גֹּאֲלִי, וְצוּר חֶבְלִי בְּעֵת צָרָה. וְהוּא נִסִּי וּמָנוֹס לִי, מְנָת כּוֹסִי בְּיוֹם אֶקְרָא.

I place my soul in Your hands and trust You with it night and day. I also entrust You with my body. When I have Adonai, I shall never fear.

בְּיָדוֹ אַפְקִיד רוּחִי, בְּעֵת אִישַׁן וְאָעִירָה. וְעִם רוּחִי גְּוִיָּתִי, יְיָ לִי וְלֹא אִירָא.

Yigdal יגדל

We praise, exalt, and adore the living God! God was, God is, God will be evermore! God is unique in the unity of One: eternal, inconceivable is God.

יִגְדַּל אֱלֹהִים חַי וְיִשְׁתַּבַּח, נִמְצָא, וְאֵין עֵת אֶל מְצִיאוּתוֹ. אֶחָד וְאֵין יָחִיד כְּיִחוּדוֹ, נֶעְלָם, וְגַם אֵין סוֹף לְאַחְדּוּתוֹ.

No form, or shape even compares with the incorporeal One, blessed God. God was at creation. The Eternal One saw no beginning in heaven, or earth, but instead knows only a timeless existence.

אֵין לוֹ דְמוּת הַגּוּף וְאֵינוֹ גוּף, לֹא נַעֲרוֹךְ אֵלָיו קְדֻשָּׁתוֹ. קַדְמוֹן לְכָל דָּבָר אֲשָׁר נִבְרָא, רִאשׁוֹן וְאֵין רֵאשִׁית לְרֵאשִׁיתוֹ.

God is known as Sovereign of the Universe, teaching of Holy power to the beings crafted by the Holy One personally. God gave the gift of prophecy to those who experience God’s glory.

הִנּוֹ אֲדוֹן עוֹלָם לְכָל נוֹצָר, יוֹרֶה גְדֻלָּתוֹ וּמַלְכוּתוֹ. שֶׁפַע נְבוּאָתוֹ נְתָנוֹ, אֶל אַנְשֵׁי סְגֻלָּתוֹ וְתִפְאַרְתּוֹ.

No prophet ever yet has filled the place of Moses. Through him (the faithful in God’s house) God gave the law of truth to Israel.

לֹא קָם בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל כְּמֹשֶׁה עוֹד, נָבִיא וּמַבִּיט אֶת תְּמוּנָתוֹ. תּוֹרַת אֱמֶת נָתַן לְעַמּוֹ אֵל, עַל יַד נְבִיאוֹ נֶאֱמַן בֵּיתוֹ.

This Judge will not alter and be everlasting. God knows and heeds the secret thoughts of humanity: God saw the end before there even was a beginning. With love and grace does God bless the righteous; God treats the wicked with justice and mercy.

לֹא יַחֲלִיף הָאֵל וְלֹא יָמִיר דָּתוֹ, לְעוֹלָמִים, לְזוּלָתוֹ. צוֹפֶה וְיוֹדֵעַ סְתָרֵינוּ, מַבִּיט לְסוֹף דָּבָר בְּקַדְמָתוֹ. גּוֹמֵל לְאִישׁ חֶסֶד כְּמִפְעָלוֹ, נוֹתֵן לְרָשָׁע רָע כְּרִשְׁעָתוֹ.

At the end, God will redeem us. God will restore us to life. Praised by God’s glorious Name forever!

יִשְׁלַח לְקֵץ הַיָּמִין מְשִׁיחֵנוּ, לִפְדּוֹת מְחַכֵּי קֵץ יְשׁוּעָתוֹ. מֵתִים יְחַיֶּה אֵל בְּרֹב חַסְדּוֹ, בָּרוּךְ עֲדֵי עַד שֵׁם תְּהִלָּתוֹ.
