הַנּוֹתֵן תְּשׁוּעָה | Prayer for the Royal Family of King George III (1810)

Source (Hebrew) Translation (English)

הַנּוֹתֵן תְּשׁוּעָה לַמְּלָכִים
וּמֶמְשָׁלָה לַנְּסִיכִים
מַלְכוּתוֹ מַלְכוּת כׇּל־עוֹלָמִים
הַפּוֹצֶה אֶת דָּוִד עַבְדּוֹ מֵחֶֽרֶב רָעָה.
הַנּוֹתֵן בַּיָּם דֶּֽרֶךְ
וּבְמַֽיִם עַזִּים נְתִיבָה.
May he that dispenseth salvation unto kings,
and dominion unto princes;
whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom;
who delivered his servant David from the destructive sword;
who maketh a way in the sea,
and a path through the mighty waters,

הוּא יְבָרֵךְ וְיִשְׁמוֹר וְיִנְצוֹר וְיַעֲזוֹר
וִירוֹמֵם וִיגַדֵּל וִינַשֵּׂא לְמַֽעְלָה
 
 
 
 
 
 
יָרוּם הוֹדוֹ.
bless, preserve, guard, and assist
 
our most gracious sovereign lord,
King GEORGE the third,
our most gracious Queen CHARLOTTE,
their royal highness GEORGE Prince of Wales,
the Princess DOWAGER of Wales,
and all the ROYAL FAMILY;

מֶֽלֶךְ מַלְכֵי הַמְּלָכִים
בְּרַחֲמָיו יְחַיֵֽהוּ וְיִשְׁמְרֵֽהוּ
וּמִכׇּל צָרָה וְיָגוֹן וָנֶֽזֶק יַצִּילֵה
may the supreme King of kings
through his infinite mercy preserve them, and grant them life
and deliver them from all manner of danger;

[מֶֽלֶךְ מַלְכֵי הַמְּלָכִים
יָרוּם וְיַגְבִּיהַּ כּוֹכַב מַֽעֲרַכְתָּם
וְיַֽאֲרִיכוּ יָמִים עַל מַמְלַכְתָּם][1] The Hebrew sourcetext corresponding to the English translation is absent in the prayerbook. We have added a reconstruction of the text based on earlier sources for clarity. –ANV 
וְיַדְבֵּר עַמִּים תַּֽחַת רַגְלַיו
וְיַפִּיל שׂוֹנְאָיו לְפָנָיו
וּבְכָל אֲשֶׁר תִּפְנֶה יַצְלִֽיחַ
may the supreme King of kings
aggrandize and highly exalt our sovereign Lord the king,
and grant him long and prosperously to reign;
[May he subdue nations beneath his sway,
and make his enemies fall before him;
and in whatsoever he undertaketh may he prosper.][2] An English translation corresponding to the Hebrew sourcetext is absent in the prayerbook. We have added it here for clarity. –ANV 

מֶֽלֶךְ מַלְכֵי הַמְּלָכִים
בְּרַחֲמָיו יִתֵּן בְּלִבּוֹ
וּבְלֵב כׇּל יוֹעֲצָיו וְשָׂרָיו
רַחֲמָנוֹת לַעֲשׂוֹת טוֹבָה עִמָּֽנוּ
וְעִם כׇּל יִשְׂרָאֵל
may the supreme King of kings
inspire him
and his council and the state of the kingdom
with benevolence towards us,
and all Israel our brethren;

בְּיָמָיו וּבְיָמֵֽינוּ
תִּוָּשַׁע יְהוּדָה
וְיִשְׂרָאֵל יִשְׁכּוֹן לָבֶטַח
וּבָא לְצִיּוֹן גּוֹאֵל
וְכֵן יְהִי רָצוֹן
וָנֺאמַר אָמֵן׃
in his days and in our days,
may Jehudah be saved,
and Israel dwell in safety,
and may the redeemer come unto Zion,
which God of his infinite mercies grant;
and let us say, Amen.
