Le'ma'an achai ve'reyai adabrah na shalom bach.
Le'man beit hashem elokeinu avaksha tov lach.
Hashem oz leamo yiten, hashem yevarech et amo va'shalom.
לְמַעַן אַחַי וְרֵעָי אֲדַבְּרָה נָּא שָׁלוֹם בָּךְ.
לְמַעַן בֵּית ה׳ אֱלוֹהֵינוּ אֲבַקְשָׁה טוֹב לָךְ.
ה׳ עֹז לְעַמּוֹ יִתֵּן, ה׳ יְבָרֵךְ אֶת עַמּוֹ בַשָּׁלוֹם.
