The Original “Our Father”

Here follows the original Our Father as would have been spoken by Yeshua Meshiach (Jesus Christ) in the Galilean Aramaic dialect of his time.

Abwun d’bwaschmaya
Nethkadasch schmah
Tete malkutach
Nehwe tzevyanach aikana
D’bwaschmaya af b’arha
Hawvlan lachma d’sunkanan yaomana
Waschboklan chauben wachtahen aikana
Daf chnan schwoken l’chaiyaben
Wela tachlan l’nesyuna
Ela patzan min bischa
Metol dilachie malkutha wahaila
Wateschbukta l’ahlam almin


The rough translation follows. Please note that Aramaic was a very mystical language with many layers of interpretation and the translation below does not, in any way, reflect a direct or word-for-word (transliteration) approach.

O Thou, from whom the Breath of Life comes; Who fills all realms (of light and vibration)
May your light be experienced in my utmost holiest (soul)
Your Heavenly Domain (Kingdom) approaches
Let your will come true
In the universe (all that vibrates and is of light) just as on earth (all that is material and dense)
Give us wisdom for our daily need
Detach the fetters of faults that bind us
As we let go of the guilt of others (upon us and in general)
Let us not be lost in superficial things
But let us be freed from that which keeps us from our true purpose
From you comes the all-working will (it is your kingdom), the lively strength to act (power)
The song that beautifies all and renews itself from age to age (glory, forever)

Sealed in Trust, Faith and Truth.
(I confirm with my entire being)
