VESHAMRU 

Veshamru bnei Yisrael et hashabat
La'asot et hashabat ledorotam,
Brit olam.

Beini uvein bnei Yisrael,
Ot hi le'olam,

Ki sheshet yamim asa Adonai
Et hashamaim ve'et ha'aretz,
Uvayom hashvi'i
Shavat vayinafash.

AND THEY SHALL KEEP 

And they shall keep - the children of Israel - the Sabbath
Make Shabbat in all generations,
As an everlasting covenant.

It shall forever be a sign,
Between Me and the children of Israel

That for six days the Lord laboured
Over the heavens and the Earth,
And on the seventh day,
He rested and was refreshed.
