א   [שִׁיר הַמַּעֲלוֹת, לְדָוִד:]1
   יְהוָה, לֹא-גָבַהּ לִבִּי--
   וְלֹא-רָמוּ עֵינַי; וְלֹא-הִלַּכְתִּי,
   בִּגְדֹלוֹת וּבְנִפְלָאוֹת מִמֶּנִּי.
ב   אִם-לֹא שִׁוִּיתִי, וְדוֹמַמְתִּי--
   נַפְשִׁי:
   כְּגָמֻל, עֲלֵי אִמּוֹ;
   כַּגָּמֻל עָלַי נַפְשִׁי.
ג   יַחֵל יִשְׂרָאֵל, אֶל-יְהוָה-- מֵעַתָּה, וְעַד-עוֹלָם.

Adonai, Adonai,

א   [שִׁיר הַמַּעֲלוֹת, לְדָוִד:]1
  הִנֵּה מַה-טּוֹב, וּמַה-נָּעִים-- שֶׁבֶת אַחִים גַּם-יָחַד.
ב   כַּשֶּׁמֶן הַטּוֹב, עַל-הָרֹאשׁ--
  יֹרֵד, עַל-הַזָּקָן זְקַן-אַהֲרֹן:
  שֶׁיֹּרֵד, עַל-פִּי מִדּוֹתָיו.
ג   כְּטַל-חֶרְמוֹן-- שֶׁיֹּרֵד, עַל-הַרְרֵי צִיּוֹן:
  כִּי שָׁם צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-הַבְּרָכָה--
  חַיִּים, עַד-הָעוֹלָם.
