Aleinu l'shabei-ach la-adon hakol, lateit g'dulah l'yotzeir bereishit, shelo asanu k'goyei ha-aratzot, v'lo samanu k'mishp'chot ha-adamah, shelo sam chelkeinu kahem, v'goraleinu k'chol hamonam.
It is our duty to praise the Master of all, to ascribe greatness to the Molder of primeval creation, for He has not made us like the nations of the lands and has not emplaced us like the families of the earth; for He has not assigned our portion like theirs nor our lot like all their multitudes.

Sheheim mishta-chavim l'hevel varik u-mitpal'lim el eyl lo yoshia.
(For they bow to vanity and emptiness and pray to a god which helps not.--Yeshayahu 45:20)

V'anachnu kor'im u-mishtachavim u-modim, lifney melech malchei ham'lachim Hakadosh baruch hu.
But we bend our knees, bow, and acknowledge our thanks before the King Who reigns over kings, the Holy One, Blessed is He.

Shehu noteh shamayim v'yoseid eretz, u-moshav y'karo ba-shamayim mima-al, ush-chinat uzo b'gavhei m'romim.
He stretches out heaven and establishes earth's foundation, the seat of His homage is in the heavens above and His powerful Presence is in the loftiest heights.

Hu Elokeinu eyn od. Emet malkeinu, efes zulato, kakatuv b'torato: V'yadata ha-yom, vaha-sheivota el l'vavecha, ki Hashem hu ha-Elokim ba-shamayim mima-al, v'al ha-eretz mitachat, ein od.
He is our G-d and there is none other. True is our King, there is nothing beside Him, as it is written in His Torah: 'You are to know this day and take to your heart that Hashem is the only G-d--in heaven above and on the earth below--there is none other.
(Devarim 4:39)

Al kein n'kaveh l'cha Hashem Elokeinu lirot m'heirah b'tiferet uzecha, l'ha-avir gilulim min ha-eretz, v'ha-elilim karot yikareitun, l'takein olam, b'malchut Shakai.
Therefore we put our hope in You, Hashem our G-d, that we may soon see Your mighty splendor, to remove detestable idolatry from the earth, and false gods will be utterly cut off, to perfect the universe through the Almighty's sovereignty.

V'chol b'nei vasar yikr'u vishmecha, l'hafnot eylecha kol rish-ei eretz.
Then all humanity will call upon Your Name, to turn all the earth's wicked toward You.

Yakiru v'yeid'u, kal yosh'vey teiveil, ki l'cha tichra' kol berech, tishava' kol lashon.
All the world's inhabitants will recognize and know that to You every knee should bend, every tongue should swear.
(Yeshayahu 45:23)

L'faneka Hashem Elokeinu yichr'u v'yipolu, v'lichvod shimcha y'kar yiteinu, vikab'lu chulam et ol malchutecha, v'timloch aleyhem m'heirah l'olam va-ed.
Before You, Hashem, our G-d, they will bend every knee and cast themselves down and to the glory of Your Name they will render homage, and they will all accept upon themselves the yoke of Your kingship that You may reign over them soon and eternally.

Ki hamalchut shelcha hi ulol'mei ad timloch b'chavod, kakatuv b'toratecha: Hashem yimloch l'olam va-ed.
For the kingdom is Yours and You will reign for all eternity in glory as it is written in your Torah: Hashem shall reign for all eternity.
(Shemot 15:18)

V'ne-emar: V'haya Hashem l'melech al kol ha-eretz, ba-yom hahu yih'yeh Hashem echad, ushmo echad.
And it is said: Hashem will be King over all the world--on that day Hashem will be One and His Name will be One.
(Zecharya 14:9)
