The sixth day. And the heavens and the earth and all that filled them were complete. And on the seventh day God completed the labor He had performed, and He refrained on the seventh day from all the labor which He had performed. And God blessed the seventh day and He sanctified it, for He then refrained from all his labor—from the act of creation that God had performed. Permit me, distinguished ones, rabbis, guests, and colleagues: Blessed are You, the Lord our God, King of the Universe, Creator of the fruit of the vine. (Amen). Blessed are You, the Lord our God, King of the Universe, Who sanctified us with His commandments, and hoped for us, and with love and intent invested us with His sacred Sabbath, as a memorial to the deed of Creation. It is the first amongst the holy festivals, commemorating the exodus from Egypt. For You chose us, and sanctified us, out of all nations, and with love and intent You invested us with Your Sabbath. Blessed are You, Sanctifier of the Sabbath. (Amen)
