We ask Your blessing, O God, for the State of Israel,
For the Land of Israel, and for the people of Israel.
Bless those who defend the Land and protect its people."
Bless its leaders with wisdom, courage, and dedication.
May they be resolute in the face of challenge,
And unwavering in the pursuit of peace.
May Israel be a beacon of hope for the oppressed,
A source of inspiration to all who are free.
Fulfill in our day the ancient promise,
"Zion shall be redeemed through justice,
And its inhabitants through righteousness." Amen.
