"Blessing for Studying Torah" (in Hebrew)

One of the things I like most about the Delitzsch Hebrew Gospels are its prayers. 

This one is called "Blessing for Studying Torah." It's a lovely prayer. I have begun using it regularly. 

In Jewish practice, it is recited before Torah study of any kind. For Messianic Jews, this would include the New Testament of course. Please forgive my American pronunciation! 

The English is:

Blessed are you, O LORD, King of the universe,

who chose us from all of the peoples

and gave to us his Torah.

Blessed are you, O LORD, who gives the Torah. 

Have a lovely evening!
