Translation:

Glorified and sanctified be God’s great name throughout the world
which God has created according to God's will.

May God establish God's kingdom in your lifetime and during your days,
and within the life of the entire House of Israel, speedily and soon;
and say, Amen.

May God's great name be blessed forever and to all eternity.

Blessed and praised, glorified and exalted, extolled and honored,
adored and lauded be the name of the Holy One, blessed be God,
beyond all the blessings and hymns, praises and consolations that
are ever spoken in the world; and say, Amen.

May there be abundant peace from heaven, and life, for us
and for all Israel; and say, Amen.

God who creates peace in God's celestial heights,
may God create peace for us and for all Israel;
and say, Amen.
