Adoshem, Adoshem (Adonai Adonai),

El rachum v'chanun,

Erech apayim v'rav chessed ve-emet;

Notser chessed la-alafim,

Nosey avon vafesha v'chata'ah v'nakeh.


God is gracious and compassionate,

Patient and abounding in kindness and faithfulness,

Assuring love for a thousand generations,

Forgiving iniquity, transgression and sin,
And granting pardon.

(Sung 3 times)

Spanish translation


Adonai, Adonai,

(Dios, Dios)


Dios misericordioso y clemente,


Tardo en la ira,

magnánimo en la misericordia y en la verdad.


Mantiene la merced para miles de generaciones


perdona la iniquidad, la rebeldía y el error

y absuelve.



*versión del Majzor para Rosh Hashana y Iom Kipur de Marcos Edery y Marshall T. Meyer
