The Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic

Used with permission from the beloved India Jiva

Ancient Aramaic and Hebrew are beautiful, soft and musical, not gutteral.

B’eh b’shem Isho

In the name of Isho,



Understanding “merciful” in the first line.

Isho is a cognate of Yeshua which means “Salvation”.

It takes 53 seconds to say the Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic, even less in English. Isho started every day with prayer so He was always prepared spiritually. Isho was not married. If you are married, see the Spiritual Couples page. It is different for couples and God wants you to be happy about prayer.
