O Yahweh, Almighty Elohim of our fathers, Avraham, Yitschaq, and Ya’aqov, and of their righteous seed; who made heaven and earth, with all the ornament thereof; who bound the sea by the word of your commandment; who shut up the deep, and sealed it by your terrible and glorious Name; whom all men fear, and tremble before your power; for the majesty of your esteem cannot be borne, and your angry threatening toward sinners is importable: but your compassionate promise is immeasurable and unsearchable; for you are Yahweh Tsevaot, of great compassion, longsuffering, very much loving-kindness, and repents of the evils of men.
You, O Elohim, according to your great goodness have promised repentance and forgiveness to them that have sinned against you: and of your infinite loving-kindness have appointed repentance unto sinners, that they may be saved.
You therefore, O Yahweh, that are the Elohim of the just, have not appointed repentance to the just, as to Avraham, Yitschaq, and Ya’aqov, which have not sinned against you; but you have appointed repentance unto me that am a sinner: for I have sinned above the number of the sands of the sea.
My transgressions, O Yahweh, are multiplied: my transgressions are multiplied, and I am not worthy to behold and see the height of heaven for the multitude of my iniquities.
I am bowed down with many iron bands, that I cannot lift up my head, neither have any release: for I have provoked your wrath, and done evil before you: I did not your will, neither have I kept your commandments: I have set up abominations, and have multiplied offences.
Now therefore I bow the knee of my heart, beseeching you of favor.
I have sinned, O Yahweh, I have sinned, and I acknowledge my iniquities: wherefore, I humbly beg you, forgive me, O Yahweh, forgive me, and destroy me not with my iniquities!
Be not angry with me forever, by reserving evil for me; neither condemn me to the lower parts of the earth.
For you are Elohim, even the Elohim of them that repent; and in me you will show all your kindness: for you will save me, that am unworthy, according to your great mercy.
Therefore I will praise you forever all the days of my life: for all the powers of the heavens do praise you, and yours is the honor and esteem forever and ever.
