May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine upon us, that your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations.   May the people praise you, O God; may all the people praise you.  May the nation be glad and sing for joy, for you rule the people justly and guide the nat5ions of the earth.  May the people praise you, O God; May all the people praise you, then the land will yield its harvest, and God, Our God, will bless us.  God will bless us, and all the ends of the earth will fear him.
