Kaddish 2

English Translation

Glorified and sanctified be God's great name
throughout the world which was created
according to God's will.

May God's kingdom be established in your
lifetime and during your days, and within
the life of the entire House of Israel, speedily
and soon; and let us say, Amen.

May God's great name be blessed forever
and to all eternity.

Blessed and praised, glorified and exalted,
extolled and honored, adored and lauded be
the name of the Holy One, who is ever to be
praised, though far above the eulogies and
songs of praise and consolation that human
lips can utter; and let us say, Amen.

May a great peace descend from heaven, and
abundant life be granted to us and all Israel;
and let us say, Amen.

May the Holy One who creates peace in the
heavens create peace for us, for all Israel and
all the world; and let us say, Amen.
