Die dreizehn Glaubensartikel.
The thirteen articles of faith.
1. Ich glaube mit unverbrüchlicher Treue, daß der Schöpfer, gelobt sei sein Name, der Schöpfer und Regierer aller Wesen sei, der allein alles her-vorgebracht, alles geschehen lassen und auch alles entstehen lassen werde.
1. I believe with unbreakable faithfulness that the Creator, praised be his name, is the creator and governor of all beings, who alone has brought forth everything, has caused everything to happen and also has caused everything to come into being.[1] Isaiah 37:16, Isaiah 66:2, Nehemiah 9:6. 
2. Ich glaube mit unverbrüchlicher Treue, daß der Schöpfer, gelobt sei sein Name, einzig sei, daß keine Einheit in irgend einem Verhältnisse der seinen gleiche und daß ausschließend er unser Gott war, ist und sein werde.
2. I believe with unbreakable faithfulness that the Creator, blessed be his name, is unique, that no unity in any respect is like his, and that he was, is, and will be our God exclusively.[2] Deuteronomy 4:15, Isaiah 48:5. Miro also has Psalms 18:35 cited but this must be in error (perhaps Psalms 18:12 was intended?). Others cite Deuteronomy 6:4. 
3. Ich glaube mit unverbrüchlicher Treue, daß der Schöpfer, gelobt sei sein Name, kein Körper sei, daß kein menschlicher Begriff ihn erfassen und keine Bildliche Vorstellung ihn bezeichnen könne.
3. I believe with unbreakable faithfulness that the Creator, praised be his name, is not a body, that no human concept can grasp him and no figurative concept can designate him.[3] Miro has the following citation but it seems incorrect to me (Isaiah 25:18, 40). Others cite Deuteronomy 4:15, as with Article №2. 
4. Ich glaube mit unverbrüchlicher Treue, daß der Schöpfer, gelobt sei sein Name, der erste war, und der letzte sein werde.
4. I believe with unbreakable faithfulness that the Creator, blessed be his name, was the first and will be the last.[4] Isaiah 41:4, Isaiah 44:6. 
5. Ich glaube mit unverbrüchlicher Treue, daß der Schöpfer, gelobt sei sein Name, allein nur angebetet werden dürfe, und kein anderes Wesen anbetungswürdig sei.
5. I believe with unbreakable faithfulness that the Creator, blessed be his name, alone may be worshipped, and that no other being is worthy of worship.[5] Exodus 20:3-5. Miro also cites Exodus 22:3, but perhaps that is an error. Others cite Deuteronomy 4:19. 
6. Ich glaube mit unverbrüchlicher Treue, daß [daß] alle Verkündigungen der Propheten wahrhaft und unleugbar sind.
6. I believe with unbreakable faithfulness that all the proclamations of the prophets are true and undeniable.[6] Deuteronomy 18:15. 
7. Ich glaube mit unverbrüchlicher Treue, an die Weissagungen unseres Lehrers Moses (Friede mit ihm) und daß er der vorzüglichste aller frühern und spätern Propheten gewesen sei.
7. I believe with unbreakable faithfulness in the prophecies of our teacher Moses (peace be upon him), and that he was the most excellent of all the earlier and later prophets.[7] Numbers 12:6-8, Deuteronomy 34:10. 
8. Ich glaube mit unverbrüchlicher Treue, daß die vorhandene Lehre in ihrem gegenwärtigen Umfang und ihrer Vollkommenheit unserem Lehrer Moses überliefert worden sei.
8. I believe with unbreakable faithfulness that the existing doctrine in its present extent and perfection was handed down to our teacher Moses.[8] Miro’s text cites Joshua 6:6, but this appears incorrect to me and I am not certain what was intended. Others cite Numbers 16:28. 
9. Ich glaube mit unverbrüchlicher Treue, daß der Schöpfer, gelobt sei sein Name, diese Lehren unverändert lassen, und auch keine andere Lehre an ihre Stelle setzen werde.
9. I believe with unbreakable faithfulness that the Creator, blessed be His name, will leave these teachings unchanged and will not substitute any other teaching for them.[9] Deuteronomy 13:1 
10. Ich glaube mit unverbrüchlicher Treue, daß der Schöpfer, gelobt sei sein Name, alle Handlungen der Menschen kenne; denn es heißt: Er, der ihre Herzen gebildet, bemerkt auch ihre Handlungen. (Ps. 33,15)
10. I believe with unbreakable faithfulness that the Creator, blessed be his name, knows all the actions of men;[10] Deuteronomy 29:28, I Chronicles 28:9.  for it is said, He who forms their hearts also observes their actions. (Psalms 33:15)
11. Ich glaube mit unverbrüchlicher Treue daß der Schöpfer, gelobt sei sein Name, die Befolgung seiner Gebote belohne und die Uebertretung derselben bestrafe.
11. I believe with unbreakable faithfulness that the Creator, blessed be his name, rewards the keeping of his commandments and punishes the transgression of them.[11] Psalms 62:13, Jeremiah 32:19. 
12. Ich glaube mit unverbrüchlicher Treue, daß der Erlöser kommen werde, und sein säumiges Ausbleiben macht meine tägliche Erwartung nicht wanken.
12. I believe with unbreakable faithfulness that the Redeemer will come, and his failure to come does not diminish my daily expectation.[12] Habakkuk 2:3. 
13. Ich glaube an die Auferstehung der Todten, wenn der gnadenvolle Wille des Schöpfers es zulassen werde, — gepriesen werde sein Name, hochgelobt seine Erwähnung in unendlicher Ewigkeit. Auf deine Hilfe hoffe ich Ewiger. Ich harre Ewiger, auf deinen Beistand. Ewiger! auf deine Errettung vertraue ich.
13. I believe in the resurrection of the dead, if the gracious will of the Creator will allow it, — praised be his name, highly praised be his mention in infinite eternity. I hope for your help, Eternal One. I wait, Eternal One, for your help. Eternal! in your salvation I trust.

“Die dreizehn Glaubensartikel” was translated/adapted by Yehoshua Heshil Miro and published in his anthology of teḥinot, בית יעקב (Beit Yaaqov) Allgemeines Gebetbuch für gebildete Frauen mosaischer Religion. It first appears in the 1829 edition, תחנות Teḥinot ein Gebetbuch für gebildete Frauenzimmer mosaischer Religion as teḥinah №61 on pp. 87-89. In the 1835 edition, it appears as teḥinah №63 on pp. 110-112. In the 1842 edition, it appears as teḥinah №66 on pp. 115-117. I have added annotation from the 1829 edition not found in the 1835 edition.

We welcome corrections and improvements. The transcription of the German from Latin script in Fraktur type provided machine-readable text for a machine translation by DeepL, which we then proofread for accuracy. –Aharon Varady
