ENGLISH TRANSLATION ON THESE PAGES:

The Merciful Being will forever reign over us. The Merciful Being will be exalted in Heaven and on Earth. The Merciful Being will be acclaimed by all generations to come, and enamored of us forever and in perpetuity, and glorified by us forever and until eternity. The Merciful Being should sustain us with dignity. The Merciful Being should break the yoke of oppression from our necks

and He should convey us boldly upright to our homeland.

The Merciful Being should send us a multi-dimensional blessing, to this house, and to this table at which we ate. The Merciful Being should send us the fondly remembered prophet Elijah; and He should tell us cheerful news of salvation and consolation.
