Blessed are You, Adonai our God, Sovereign of the Universe, Creator of the fruit of the vine.
Blessed are You Adonai our God, Sovereign of the Universe,
Who sanctified us with His commandments and was pleased with us.
And His holy Sabbath, with love and pleasure, He gave us for a heritage,
a commemoration of the work of creation.
For this day is the first of the days of holy convocations commemorating the exodus from Egypt.
For us have You chosen and us have You sanctified from among all the peoples.
And Your holy Sabbath with love and pleasure You gave us for a heritage.
Blessed are You, Adonai, Sanctifier of the Sabbath.
