Selichah - Blessing Six of the Amidah

Selichah -

Printer-Friendly Version

Forgive us, our Father, for we have sinned

The six blessing of the weekday Amidah is called Selichah ("forgiveness") and functions as a confession of sin before the LORD. Note that this part of the Amidah is only recited during weekdays (the Shabbat and Holiday versions skip this prayer).


Blessing Six: Selichah


Forgive us, our Father, for we have sinned; pardon us, our King, for we have rebelled; for You are a pardoner and a forgiver. Blessed are you, Lord, the gracious One who abundantly forgives.
