אֱלֹהֵינוּ וֵאלֹהֵי אֲבוֹתֵינוּ
אַל תַּעַזְבֵנוּ
וְאַל תִּטְּשֵׁנוּ
וְאַל תַּכְלִימֵנוּ.
וְאַל תָּפֵר בְּרִיתְךָ אִתָּנוּ.
Our God, and the God of our ancestors,
Don’t forsake us;
And don’t cast us off;
And don’t put us to shame;
And don’t renege on your deal with us.

קָרְבֵנוּ לְתוֹרָתֶךָ.
לַמְּדֵנוּ מִצְוֹתֶיךָ.
הוֹרֵנוּ דְּרָכֶיךָ.
הַט לִבֵּנוּ לְיִרְאָה אֶת שְׁמֶךָ.
וּמוֹל אֶת לְבָבֵנוּ לְאַהֲבָתֶךָ.
וְנָשׁוּב אֵלֶיךָ בֶּאֱמֶת
וּבְלֵב שָׁלֵם.
וּלְמַעַן שִׁמְךָ הַגָּדוֹל
תִּמְחוֹל וְתִסְלַח לַעֲוֹנֵינוּ
כַּכָּתוּב בְּדִבְרֵי קָדְשֶׁךָ.
לְמַעַן־שִׁמְךָ יְהוָה
וְסָלַחְתָּ לַעֲוֺנִי כִּי רַב־הוּא׃ (תהלים כה:יא)
Draw us near to your Torah.
Teach us your commandments.
Show us your ways.
Incline our hearts to have awe for your name,
And circumcise our hearts to love you.
That we may return to you in truth,
And with a complete heart;
And for the sake of your name, the big one,
Pardon and forgive our immoralities,
According to the words of your holy one:
“Pardon my immoralities, YHVH!
On the strength of your name: for it is great.”[1]Psalms 25:11.

אֱלֹהֵינוּ וֵאלֹהֵי אֲבוֹתֵינוּ
סְלַח לָנוּ.
מְחַל לָנוּ.
כַּפֶּר לָנוּ.
Our God and the God of our ancestors

We are knuckleheads
But you are merciful and gracious.
We are stiff-necked
But you are lastingly patient.
We have lots of immorality
But you have lots of of mercy.
We — our days pass as a shadow.
But you — you are He whose years have no death.

אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ וֵאלֹהֵי אֲבוֹתֵֽינוּ
תָּבֹא לְפָנֶֽיךָ תְּפִלָּתֵֽנוּ,
וְאַל תִּתְעַלַּם מִתְּחִנָּתֵֽנוּ
שֶׁאֵין אֲנַֽחְנוּ עַזֵּי פָנִים וּקְשֵׁי עֹֽרֶף
לוֹמַר לְפָנֶֽיךָ
יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ וֵאלֹהֵי אֲבוֹתֵֽינוּ
צַדִּיקִים אֲנַֽחְנוּ וְלֹא חָטָֽאנוּ
אֲבָל אֲנַֽחְנוּ וַאֲבוֹתֵֽינוּ חָטָֽאנוּ:
Our God and God of our Ancestors,
Allow our prayers to come before you
And don’t absent yourself from our supplications
For we are not such stiff-necked knuckleheads
As to say before you,
YHVH, our God and God of our Ancestors
“We are righteous, and we have not sinned.”
Rather, us and our ancestors, we have sinned.

אָשַׁמְנוּ
בָּגַדְנוּ
גָּזַלְנוּ
דִבַּרְנוּ דֹפִי
הֶעֱוִינוּ
וְהִרְשַׁעְנוּ
We are guilty
We have betrayed

and We have done bad things

סַרְנוּ מִמִּצְוֹתֶיךָ וּמִמִשְׁפָּטֶיךָ הַטּוֹבִים
וְלֹא שָׁוָה לָנוּ:
וְאַתָּה צַדִּיק עַל כׇּל הַבָּא עָלֵינוּ.
כִּי אֱמֶת עָשִׂיתָ וַאֲנַחְנוּ הִרְשָׁעְנוּ:
We have turned aside from your good commandments and orders,
and that has not profited us.
But you are just concerning all that is come upon us,
for you have dealt most truly, but we have done badly.

הִרְשַׁעְנוּ וּפָשַׁעְנוּ לָכֵן לֹא נוֹשָׁעְנוּ
וְתֵן בְּלִבֵּנוּ לַעֲזוֹב דֶּרֶךְ רֶשַׁע
וְחִישׁ לָנוּ יֶשַׁע כַּכָּתוּב עַל יַד נְבִיאֶךָ
יַעֲזוֹב רָשָׁע דַּרְכּוֹ וְאִישׁ אָוֶן מַחְשְׁבוֹתָיו
וְיָשׁב אֶל יְהוָה וִירַחֲמֵהוּ
וְאֶל אֱלהֵינוּ כִּי יַרְבֶּה לִסְלוֹחַ:
We have done bad things, and we have transgressed, so we have not been saved.
And allow our hearts to abandon bad ways,
and hurry to us salvation. As it is written by the hand of your prophet:
Let the baddie abandon his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts;
And let him return to YHVH, for He will be merciful;
and to our God, for he pardons much.

אֱלֹהֵינוּ וֵאֱלֹהֵי אֲבוֹתֵינוּ.
מְחַל וּסְלַח לַעֲוֹנוֹתֵינוּ
בְּיוֹם (לשבת: הַשַּׁבָּת הַזֶּה וּבְיוֹם) צוֹם הַכִּפּוּרִים הַזֶּה
וְהֵעָתֵר לָנוּ בִּתְפִלָּתֵנוּ.
מְחֵה וְהַעֲבֵר פְּשָׁעֵינוּ מִנֶּגֶד עֵינֶיךָ.
וְכוֹף אֶת יִצְרֵנוּ לְהִשְׁתַּעְבֶּד־לָךְ.
וְהַכְנַע אֶת עָרְפֵּנוּ לָשׁוּב אֵלֶיךָ בֶּאֱמֶת.
וְחַדֵּשׁ כִּלְיוֹתֵינוּ לִשְׁמוֹר פִּקֻּדֶיךָ.
וּמוֹל אֶת לְבָבֵנוּ לְאַהֲבָה וּלְיִרְאָה אֶת שְׁמֶךָ.
כַּכָּתוּב בְּתוֹרָתֶךָ:
וּמָל יְהוָה אֱלהֶיךָ אֶת לְבָבְךָ
וְאֶת לְבַב זַרְעֶךָ
לְאַהֲבָה אֶת יְהוָה אֱלהֶיךָ
בְּכָל לְבָבְךָ
וּבְכָל נַפְשְׁךָ
לְמַעַן חַיֶּיךָ׃ (דברים ל:ו)
Our God and the God of our ancestors,
Forgive and pardon our immoralities
on this day of (on Shabbat: shabbat and on this day of) absolution,
let us petition you with our prayers.
Erase and overlook our transgressions which accost your eyes.
And humble our creativity, that it may be used in your service.
And subdue our stubbornness, to turn to you in truth.
And renew our innards to keep your orders.
And circumcise our hearts with love to awe your name
As it is written in your Torah:
“And YHVH your God will circumcise your heart
and the heart of your seed
to love YHVH your God
with all your heart,
and with all your soul,
for the benefit of your life.”[2]Deuteronomy 30:6.

הַזְּדוֹנוֹת וְהַשְּׁגָגוֹת אַתָּה מַכִּיר.
הָרָצוֹן וְהָאוֹנֶס הַגְּלוּיִם וְהַנִּסְתָּרִים.
לְפָנֶיךָ הֵם גְּלוּיִים וִידוּעִים.
Our evils and our missteps, you recognize
The voluntary and the coerced, the public and the secret.
Before you they are all revealed and known.

מָה אָנוּ.
מֶה חַיֵּינוּ.
מֶה חַסְדֵּנוּ.
מַה צִּדְקֵנוּ.
מַה יְשֵׁנוּ.
מַה כֹּחֵנוּ.
מַה גְּבוּרָתֵנוּ.
וּמַה נֹּאמַר לְפָנֶיךָ יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ וֵאלֹהֵי אֲבוֹתֵינוּ.
הֲלֹא כׇּל הַגִּבּוֹרִים כְּאַיִן לְפָנֶיךָ
וְאַנְשֵׁי הַשֵּׁם כְּלֹא הָיוּ
וַחֲכָמִים כִּבְלִי מַדָּע
וּנְבוֹנִים כִּבְלִי הַשְׂכֵּל.
כִּי רֹב מַעֲשֵׂיהֶם תּהוּ
וִימֵי חַיֵּיהֶם הֶבֶל לְפָנֶיךָ.
וּמוֹתַר הָאָדָם מִן הַבְּהֵמָה אָיִן כִּי הַכֹּל הָבֶל:
What are we?
What is our life?
What is our mercy?
What is our righteousness?
What is our saving?
What is our power?
What is our strength?
And what can we say before you, YHVH, our God and the God of our ancestors?
Are not the heroes like nothing before you?
Household names as if they had not existed?
Wise men, as if they were without knowledge?
And the intelligent, as if they were without understanding?
For the majority of their actions are null
And the days of their life void before you.
And the superiority of the human over the animal is nothing, for it’s all useless.

מַה נֹּאמַר לְפָנֶיךָ יושֵׁב מָרוֹם.
וּמַה נְּסַפֵּר לְפָנֶיךָ שׁוֹכֵן שְׁחָקִים.
הֲלֹא כׇּל הַנִּסְתָּרוֹת וְהַנִּגְלוֹת אַתָּה יוֹדֵעַ:
אַתָּה יוֹדֵעַ רָזֵי עוֹלָם.
וְתַעֲלוּמוֹת סִתְרֵי כׇּל חָי:
אַתָּה חוֹפֵשׂ כׇּל חַדְרֵי בָטֶן וּבוֹחֵן כְּלָיוֹת וָלֵב:
אֵין דָּבָר נֶעְלָם מִמֶּךָּ, וְאֵין נִסְתָּר מִנֶּגֶד עֵינֶיךָ:
What can we say before you who sits up top?
Or what can we tell before you who lives in the skies?
Isn’t it that, the secret and the public, you know?
You know the secrets of the world,
and the hidden mysteries of all living.
You search all the rooms of the belly and examine the kidneys and the heart.
There is nothing concealed from you, and none hidden from meeting your eyes.

וּבְכֵן יְהִי רָצוֹן מִלְּפָנֶיךָ יְהוָה אֱלהֵינוּ וֵאלֹהֵי אֲבוֹתֵינוּ,
שֶׁתִּסְלַח לָנוּ עַל כׇּל חַטֹּאתֵינוּ,
וְתִמְחָל לָנוּ עַל כׇּל עֲוֹנוֹתֵינוּ,
וּתְכַפֶּר לָנוּ עַל כׇּל פְּשָׁעֵינוּ:
May it be your will, YHVH, our God and the God of our ancestors
to pardon us for all our sins,
and to forgive us for all our immoralities
and to absolve for all our transgressions.

If there is anything that can be done about it, and if there is not a thing that can be done about it.
Those which are visible to us, and those which are not visible to us.
Those which are visible to us, we have already said them before you and acknowledged them to you.
And those which are not visible to us, before you they are visible and known.
As it is said in these words,
“The secret things are for YHVH, our God,
and the visible things are for us and our children until forever,
to do all the words of this Torah.”[3]Deuteronomy 29:28.
