! SPECIAL NOTICE !
1.- A word deserves special notice:

The Hebrew word for "O Lord" is Adonai
( block No. 3 ). The prayer book uses the symbol sign adonai as a substitution for the holy name.
In the Bible it is spelled adonai = Jehovah

2.- A letter deserves special notice:

For the last letter ch=chaf in words No.1 =Baruch and, No. 5 =Melech there is not English equivalent.

Click on the Hebrew word to listen to the sound.
