The Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic

Abwoon d’bwashmaya,
Nethqadash shmakh,
Teytey malkuthakh.
Nehwey tzevyanach aykanna d’bwashmaya aph b’arha.
Hawvlan lachma d’sunqanan yaomana.
Washboqlan khaubayn (wakhtahayn)
aykana daph khnan shbwoqan l’khayyabayn.
Wela tahlan l’nesyuna.
Ela patzan min bisha.
Metol dilakhie malkutha wahayla wateshbukhta l’ahlam almin.
Amen.

Translation into English provided by Dr. Errico, one of the most renowned and prolific Aramaic scholars in the world.

Our Father who is everywhere
Your name is sacred.
Your kingdom is come.
Your will is throughout the earth
even as it is throughout the universe
You give us our needful bread from day to day,
And you forgive us our offenses
even as we forgive our offenders.
and you let us not enter into materialism.
But you separate us from error.
Because yours are the kingdom, the power and the song and praise.
From all ages, throughout all ages.
(Sealed) in faith, trust and truth.

The Beautiful expression of the Lord’s prayer shared is with us by the group Ionnah and our hearts go out to them full of gratitude for their exceptional work and heart-filled artistry.
