Achat Sha'alti me'eit Adonai,
otah avakeish;
shivti b'veit Adonai kol y'mei chayai,
lachazot b'noam Adonai ulvakeir b'heichalo.
אַחַת שָׁאַֽלְתִּי מֵאֵת יְיָ, אוֹתָהּ אֲבַקֵּשׁ, שִׁבְתִּי בְּבֵית יְיָ כָּל יְמֵי חַיַּי,
לַחֲזוֹת בְּנֹֽעַם יְיָ וּלְבַקֵּר בְּהֵיכָלוֹ.


One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
to behold the graciousn​ess of the Lord, and to visit early in His temple.
