I shall lift up a cup of salvations

and I shall call out in the name of the Lord

nederai la’HaShem a’shalem
I shall pay my vows to the Lord

negdah nah l’khol amo
in the presence of all His people

yakar b’aynay Hashem
Difficult in the eyes of the Lord

hamavta la’khaseedav

Please, O Lord, for I am

avdekha, anee avdekha
Your servant; I am Your servant

ben amatekha p’takh-ta l’moserai
the son of Your maidservant; You have released my bonds
