הָאֵל בְּתַעֲצֻמוֹת עֻזֶּךָ,
הַגָּדוֹל בִּכְבוֹד שְׁמֶךָ,
הַגִּבּוֹר לָנֶצַח וְהַנּוֹרָא בְּנוֹרְאוֹתֶיךָ,
הַמֶּלֶךְ הַיּושֵׁב עַל כִּסֵּא רָם וְנִשָּׂא.
Deus fortis in viribus fortitudinus tuæ,
magnus in gloria nominis tui,
fortis in æternum; & formidandus in formidabilitatibus tuis:
Rex sedens in solio excelso & elevato,

This is the short prayer, ha-El b’Taatsumōt Uzekha, in its Latin translation by Johann Stephan Rittangel as found in his translation of the Pesaḥ seder haggadah, Liber Rituum Paschalium (1644). “haEl b’Taatsumōt Uzekha” is part of the Birkat haShir and always follows after “Nishmat” and before “Shokhen Ad.” Macy Nulman in his Encyclopedia of Jewish Prayer (1992) notes the short passage is written in the style of Eleazar haQalir and is based on the verse in Deuteronomy 10:17.

Transcription of the Latin by Isaac Gantwerk Mayer, and of the Hebrew by Aharon Varady. Unfortunately, my Latin is not sufficient for completing a secondary translation. If you can make one, please contact us.

Caption: The Sun behind the Earth as seen from the Sun-Earth L2 point on 27th of September, 2010. This image is highly idealized: the Sun appears too dim, the Earth too bright, and the Earth's atmosphere is too thick, with the cloud cover removed. A human observer at the L2 point would only be able to see the blinding white annulus of the Sun. (credit: Melikamp, license: CC-BY-SA 3.0 Unported)
