Psalm 92: 1,4

Mizmor shir l'yom hashabbat.
Tov l'hodot L'Adonai
ulzamer l'shimcha elyon.
L'hagid baboker chasdecha
veemunat' cha baleilot.
Alei asor valei navel,
alei higayon b'chinor.
Ki simachtani Adonai
b'faalecha b'maasei yadecha aranein.

How good it is to give thanks to you Lord,
to sing praises unto thy name, O Lord most high;
to declare thy loving kindness every morning,
and thy faithfulness by night,
with the sound of the ten string lyre,
with music of lute and harp.
Thou hast made me glad through thy work, O Lord,
I will rejoice in the works of thy hands.

In the transliteration of the Hebrew text, most of the sounds are to be pronounced as in English, while taking particular note of the following:

  1. ch is always pronounced as in Scottish “loch,” e.g. b'chinor
  2. The apostrophe (') is used to indicate a reduced vowel similar to the“e” in courtesy, e.g. l'hodot
  3. Both a and ah are pronounced as the “a” in Italian “mano,” e.g. hashabbat
  4. ai is pronounced as the “y"”in “sky,” e.g. Adonai
  5. e is pronounced as in “met,” e.g. navel
  6. ei is pronounced as the “ey” in “they,” e.g. valei
  7. i is pronounced as the “ee” in “feet,” e.g. shir
  8. o is pronounced as in “for,” e.g.l'yom
