Yehi shalom becheileich, shalva b'armonotayich

Le'ma'an achai ve'reyai adabrah na shalom bach.

Le'man beit hashem elokeinu avaksha tov lach.

Hashem oz leamo yiten, hashem yevarech et amo va'shalom.
יְהִי שָׁלוֹם בְּחֵילֵךְ שַׁלְוָה בְּאַרְמְנוֹתָיִךְ.

לְמַעַן אַחַי וְרֵעָי אֲדַבְּרָה נָּא שָׁלוֹם בָּךְ.

לְמַעַן בֵּית ה׳ אֱלוֹהֵינוּ אֲבַקְשָׁה טוֹב לָךְ.

ה׳ עֹז לְעַמּוֹ יִתֵּן, ה׳ יְבָרֵךְ אֶת עַמּוֹ בַשָּׁלוֹם.


Let there be peace within your walls,
and flourishi​ng within your palaces.

For the sake of my brothers and my fellows
I will speak peace through You.

For the sake of the House of the Lord, our God,
I will seek Your best.

Psalm​​ 122:7-9

May the Lord give strength to His nation, may the Lord bless His nation with peace.
