May it be your will, Our God, that we lie down in peace, and that we rise to life renewed. Hear, Israel, the Eternal is our God, the Eternal God is One. Blessed is God's glorious majesty for ever and every. May it be your will, Our God, that we lie down in peace, and we rise up to life renewed.

Hebrew for "hear," the first word and name of the central Jewish prayer and statement of faith.
