אֲרוֹמִמְךָ֣ אֱלוֹהַ֣י הַמֶּ֑לֶךְ
וַאֲבָרֲכָ֥ה שִׁ֝מְךָ֗ לְעוֹלָ֥ם וָעֶֽד׃
As I extol my sovereign God,

וְ֝לִגְדֻלָּת֗וֹ אֵ֣ין חֵֽקֶר׃
Call out the greatness of the Eternal
for there is no end to God’s goodness.

דּ֣וֹר לְ֭דוֹר יְשַׁבַּ֣ח מַעֲשֶׂ֑יךָ
וּגְב֖וּרֹתֶ֣יךָ יַגִּֽידוּ׃
Declair your deeds of praise generation to generation;
tell of your might.

וְדִבְרֵ֖י נִפְלְאוֹתֶ֣יךָ אָשִֽׂיחָה׃
Every dwelling honors Your splendor;
I will speak of Your wonders.

וֶעֱז֣וּז נוֹרְאֹתֶ֣יךָ יֹאמֵ֑רוּ
וגדולתיך [וּגְדוּלָּתְךָ֥] אֲסַפְּרֶֽנָּה׃
For even Your awesome deeds will say,
and Your magnitude will recount.

זֵ֣כֶר רַב־טוּבְךָ֣ יַבִּ֑יעוּ
וְצִדְקָתְךָ֥ יְרַנֵּֽנוּ׃
Great goodness of you is remembered
and your justice is uplifted

How gracious and compassionate is the Eternal,
slow to anger and great in mercy.

טוֹב־יְהוָ֥ה לַכֹּ֑ל
וְ֝רַחֲמָ֗יו עַל־כָּל־מַעֲשָֽׂיו׃
It is to all the Eternal is good;
and with compassion on all creation.

יוֹד֣וּךָ יְ֭הוָה כָּל־מַעֲשֶׂ֑יךָ
וַ֝חֲסִידֶ֗יךָ יְבָרֲכֽוּכָה׃
Just as we thank the Eternal for all Your deeds,
and the righteous give praises

כְּב֣וֹד מַלְכוּתְךָ֣ יֹאמֵ֑רוּ
וּגְבוּרָתְךָ֥ יְדַבֵּֽרוּ׃
Keep saying the honor of Your sovereignty,
and speaking of Your might.

לְהוֹדִ֤יעַ ׀ לִבְנֵ֣י הָ֭אָדָם גְּבוּרֹתָ֑יו
וּ֝כְב֗וֹד הֲדַ֣ר מַלְכוּתֽוֹ׃
Let might be known to all people,
and honored sovereignty endure.

מַֽלְכוּתְךָ֗ מַלְכ֥וּת כָּל־עֹֽלָמִ֑ים
וּ֝מֶֽמְשֶׁלְתְּךָ֗ בְּכָל־דּ֥וֹר וָדֽוֹר׃
May Your sovereignty reign all eternities,
and Your governance in each and every generation

סוֹמֵ֣ךְ יְ֭הוָה לְכָל־הַנֹּפְלִ֑ים
וְ֝זוֹקֵ֗ף לְכָל־הַכְּפוּפִֽים׃
Oh Eternal give uplift to all the fallen,
and upright for all bowed down

עֵֽינֵי־כֹ֭ל אֵלֶ֣יךָ יְשַׂבֵּ֑רוּ
וְאַתָּ֤ה נֽוֹתֵן־לָהֶ֖ם אֶת־אָכְלָ֣ם בְּעִתּֽוֹ׃
Patiently waiting are the eyes of all for You;
and You give to them their food in its time.

פּוֹתֵ֥חַ אֶת־יׇדֶ֑ךָ
וּמַשְׂבִּ֖יעַ לְכָל־חַ֣י רָצֽוֹן׃
Quickly open Your hand,
and satisfy for all life’s needs.

וְ֝חָסִ֗יד בְּכָל־מַעֲשָֽׂיו׃
Right in all ways is the Eternal’s justice,
and righteous in all deeds.

קָר֣וֹב יְ֭הוָה לְכָל־קֹרְאָ֑יו
לְכֹ֤ל אֲשֶׁ֖ר יִקְרָאֻ֣הוּ בֶאֱמֶֽת׃
So close is the Eternal to all who call,
for all who call in truth.

רְצוֹן־יְרֵאָ֥יו יַעֲשֶׂ֑ה
וְֽאֶת־שַׁוְעָתָ֥ם יִ֝שְׁמַ֗ע וְיוֹשִׁיעֵֽם׃
The wants of the awe-filled is fulfilled,
crying out is heard and saved

שׁוֹמֵ֣ר יְ֭הוָה אֶת־כָּל־אֹהֲבָ֑יו
וְאֵ֖ת כָּל־הָרְשָׁעִ֣ים יַשְׁמִֽיד׃
Ultimate guard is the Eternal to all love;
and all hate is destroyed.

תְּהִלַּ֥ת יְהוָ֗ה יְֽדַבֶּ֫ר־פִּ֥י
וִיבָרֵ֣ךְ כָּל־בָּ֭שָׂר שֵׁ֥ם קָדְשׁ֗וֹ לְעוֹלָ֥ם וָעֶֽד׃
Voice of my mouth praise the Eternal,
and all flesh bless the holy Name forever and ever.

וַאֲנַ֤חְנוּ ׀ נְבָ֘רֵ֤ךְ יָ֗הּ
מֵֽעַתָּ֥ה וְעַד־עוֹלָ֗ם

from now and forever,
Halelu-Yah.[3]Psalms 115:118.
