ShabbatKiddush-1st Para Hebrew


V’shamru v’nei Yisrael et HaShabbat,
laasot et HaShabbat l’dorotam b’rit olam.
Beini uvein b’nei Yisrael ot hi l’olam,
ki sheishet yamim asah Adonai
et hashamayim v’et haaretz,
uvayom hashvi-i shavat vayinafash.



The people of Israel shall keep Shabbat,
observing Shabbat throughout the ages as a covenant for all time.
It shall be 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.
