He Who blessed our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob
- may He bless the fighters of the Israel Defense Force,
who stand guard over our land and the cities of our God from
the border of the Lebanon to the desert of Egypt, and from
the Great Sea unto the approach of the Aravah, on the land,
in the air, and on the sea.
May Hashem cause the enemies who rise up against us to be
struck down before them. May the Holy One, Blessed is He,
preserve and rescue our fighting men from every trouble and
distress and from every plague and illness, and may He send
blessing and success in their every endeavor.
May He lead our enemies under their sway and may He grant
them salvation and crown them with victory. And may there be
fulfilled for them the verse:
For it is Hashem, your God, Who goes with you to battle your
enemies for you to save you.
Now let us respond: Amen.
