וְהִיא שֶׁעָמְדָה

V'hee she'amda lavoteinu velanu, shelo echad bilvad amad aleinu lechaloteinu, eh'la she'b'chol dor va'dor, omdiim aleinu lechaloteinu, vehakadosh baruch hu matzileinu miyadam.
וְהִיא שֶׁעָמְדָה לַאֲבוֹתֵינוּ וְלָנוּ, שֶלֹא אֶחָד בִּלבָד עָמַד עָלֵינוּ לְכַלוֹתֵינוּ, אלא שבכל דור ודור, עומדים עלינו לכלותנו, וְהַקָדוֹשׁ בָּרוּך הוּא מַצִילֵנוּ מִיָדָם.


That which stood for our ancestors​ applies to us as well.
For it was not only one individua​l who stood up against us to destroy us.
Rathe​r, in every generatio​n they stand up against us to destroy us.
But the Holy One, Blessed Be He, redeems us from their hands.
