Vehayu Limshisa Shosayich

והיו למשסה שוסיך

Edit SongDiscussionHistoryPrint

V’hayu lim’shisa shosai’yich,
V’rachaku kol m’valai’yich.
Yasis alai’yich Elohai’yich;
Kimsos chatan al kala.
Lecha dodi likrat kala, p’nei Shabbat n’kabelah!
והיו למשסה שוסיך ורחקו כל מבלעיך, ישיש עליך אלוקיך כמשוש חתן על כלה, לכה דודי לקראת כלה פני שבת נקבלה


And they that spoil thee shall be a spoil, and all that would swallow thee shall be far away: thy God shall rejoice over thee, as a bridegroo​m rejoiceth​​ over his bride.

Trans​lation from The Standard Prayer book by Simeon Singer (1915) (public domain)
