נוֹדרה לְעֵין הַחַיִים עַל הָאָרֶץ וְעַל הַמָזוֹן
נִשְׁמוֹר עַל הָאָרֶץ וְהִיא תְקַיימֵינוּ
וּנְבַקֵשׁ מָזוֹן לַשֹׂבַע לְכָל יוֹשְׁבֵי תֵבֵל

Nodh le‘in hakhayim ‘al h’rts ve‘al hamzon.
Nishmor ‘al h’rts vehi’ teqaiminu.
Unevaqsh mzon lasova‘ lechl yoshvi tvl.

[Let us acknowledge the source of life for the earth and its nourishment.
May we protect the earth that it may sustain us,
and let us seek sustenance for all who inhabit the world.]
