My help comes from HASHEM,
Who made heaven and earth.
He who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep.
HASHEM is your shade at your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night.
He shall preserve your soul.
HASHEM shall preserve your going out and your coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore.
“Let us go into the house of HASHEM.”
Our feet have been standing
Within your gates, O Jerusalem!
As a city that is compact together,
Where the tribes go up,
The tribes of HASHEM,
To the Testimony of Israel,
To give thanks to the name of HASHEM.
For thrones are set there for judgment,
The thrones of the house of David.
“May they prosper who love you.
Peace be within your walls,
Prosperity within your palaces.”
For the sake of my brethren and companions,
I will now say, “Peace be within you.”
Because of the house of HASHEM our G-d
I will seek your TOV (good).
SHALOM & Be Empowered!
