[V’-sham-ru v’-nei Yis-ra-eil,
L’-a-sot et ha-sha-bat
l’-do-ro-tam b’-rit o-lam] (2x)
Bei-ni u-vein b’-nei Yis-ra-el,
Ot hi l’-o-lam (chorus)
Ki shei-shet ya-min, a-sah A-do-nai,
Et ha-sha-ma-yim v’-et ha-a-retz (chorus)
U-va-yom hash-vi-I, sha-vat va-yi-na-fash,
sha-vat va-yi-na-fash (chorus)
The people of Israel shall keep Shabbat,
observing Shabbat throughout the ages as a covenant for all time.
It is a sign for all time between Me and the people of Israel.
For in six days Adonai made heaven and earth,
and on the seventh day God ceased from work and was refreshed.
