HEBREW:

Psalm 23

This psalm speaks of God’s protection and care, especially during death. Both Jews and Christians use this psalm as a hymn. For Jews, Psalm 23 is often recited during Shabbat and other religious occasions.

ENGLISH:

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

HEBREW:

El Moley Rachamin

ENGLISH:

O God, full of mercy, Who dwells on high,
Grant proper rest on the wings of the Divine Presence –
In the lofty levels of the holy and the pure ones,
Who shine like the glow of the firmament –
For the soul of (…….) who has gone on to his world,
Because, without making a vow,
I will contribute to charity in remembrance of his soul.
May his resting place be in the Garden of Eden –
Therefore may the Master of Mercy
Shelter him in the shelter of His wings for Eternity,
And may He bind his soul in the Bond of Life.

The Lord is his heritage,
And may he repose in peace on his resting place.
Amen.
