    This kavanah, or meditational prayer, offers more than one blessing. There is a blessing Israel and another for the betterment of the nations of the world. Our fate is very much tied to that of the rest of the people on Earth, so we are to pray this prayer with the goal of becoming better people, as we aren’t the only people that benefit from our enrichment. We become better people so we can be better to others! That’s why the last verse is so strong:

     

    “Bless us, our G-d; so that all the ends of the earth will be amazed by you.”

     

    Shiviti is a form of artwork using Hebrew Letters and Torah Text to create a "protection shield". I hope this shield protects you. 

     

    For the conductor, on neginoth; a psalm, a song.
    God will be gracious to us and bless us; He will cause His countenance to shine with us forever.
    That Your way should be known on earth, Your salvation among all nations.
    Peoples will thank You, O God; peoples will thank You, yea, all of them.
    Kingdoms will rejoice and sing praises, for You will judge peoples fairly, and the kingdoms-You will lead them on earth forever.
    Peoples will thank You, O God; peoples will thank You, yea, all of them.
    The earth gave forth its produce; God, our God, will bless us.
    God will bless us, and all the ends of the earth will fear Him.
