SHABBAT WORSHIP - V’SHAMRU

Kiddusha Rabba at the Shabbat Table

If you hold Back your feet on account of the Shabbat from doing whatever you please on My Set Apart day, If you call the Shabbat a delight and call the Set Apart One of the LORD honoured, if you honour it by not making your own way, seeking whatever you please, or speaking not in appropriately, then you will delight in the LORD, and I will let you ride up the heights of the earth, and I will feed you with the inheritance of your father Yaakov, for the mouth of the LORD has spoken.

16 וְשָׁמְר֥וּ בְנֵֽי־יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל אֶת־הַשַּׁבָּ֑ת לַעֲשֹׂ֧ות אֶת־הַשַּׁבָּ֛ת לְדֹרֹתָ֖ם בְּרִ֥ית עוֹלָֽם׃

Veshameru venei-Yisra'el et-haShabbat; la'asovt et-haShabbat ledorotam Berit olam.

17 בֵּינִ֗י וּבֵין֙ בְּנֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל אֹ֥ות הִ֖וא לְעֹלָ֑ם כִּי־שֵׁ֣שֶׁת יָמִ֗ים עָשָׂ֤ה יְהוָה֙ אֶת־הַשָּׁמַ֣יִם וְאֶת־הָאָ֔רֶץ וּבַיּוֹם֙ הַשְּׁבִיעִ֔י שָׁבַ֖ת וַיִּנָּפַֽשׁ׃ ס

Beini, uvein benei Yisra'el, ovt hi le'olam; ki-sheshet yamim, asah Adonai et-hashamayim ve'et-ha'aretz, uvayom hashevi'i, shavat vayinafash. 

16 Wherefore Benei Yisrael shall keep the Shabbat to observe it throughout their generations, a perpetual covenant.

17 It is a sign between Me and Benai Yisrael forever; for in six days Adonai made the heavens and earth, and on the seventh day He ceased and was refreshed.

V’shamru b'nei Yisrael et Ha'Shabbat, la’asot et Ha'Shabbat l’dorotam b’rit olam.

V’shamru b'nei Yisrael et Ha'Shabbat, la’asot et Ha'Shabbat l’dorotam b’rit olam.

Beini u’vein b’nei Yisrael ot hi l’olam, ot hi l'olam

V’shamru b'nei Yisrael et Ha'Shabbat, laasot et Ha'Shabbat l’dorotam b’rit olam.

ki sheishet yamim asah HASHEM (ADONAI) et hashamayim-et hashamayim v’et

haaretz,

V’shamru b'nei Yisrael et Ha'Shabbat, laasot et Ha'Shabbat l’dorotam b’rit olam.

u’vayom hashvi-i shavat vayinafash, shavat vayinafash, shavat vayinafash.

V’shamru b'nei Yisrael et Ha'Shabbat, laasot et Ha'Shabbat l’dorotam b’rit olam.

 

The people of Israel shall keep the Shabbat, observe the Shabbat as covenant

through generations forever.

It is a sign between Me and Israel forever, forever.

For in six days HASHEM (ADONAI) made the heaven and the earth,

And on the seventh day G-d ceased from work and was refreshed.

Foreigners who are joined to the LORD, to serve Him and to Love the Name of the LORD, to be His servants, everyone who keeps from desecrating the Shabbat, and those who hold tightly to My Covenant - I will bring them to my Set Apart mountain and I will make them glad in My House of Prayer; their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be favourable on My Altar, for my House will be called a house of Prayer for all Nation.
