Gevurot -

Printer-Friendly Version

Praising the One who revives the dead

The second blessing of the weekday Amidah is called Gevurot ("mighty deeds"), and offers praise to God as the ultimate Power in the universe as demonstrated by the resurrection from the dead.

Blessing Two: Gevurot (mighty deeds)


You, O Lord, are mighty forever, You are the Reviver of the dead, You are greatly able to save.* You sustain the living in lovingkindness, You revive the dead with great compassion, You support the falling, heal the sick, set free the bound and keep faith with those who sleep in the dust. Who is like You, O Master of mighty deeds? Who compares to You, a king who puts to death and restores to life, and brings forth salvation? And You are faithful to revive the dead. Blessed are You, O Lord, who revives the dead.

From the end of Sukkot until the eve of Passover, the phrase: "You cause the wind to blow and the rain to fall" is inserted here.
