10b  Blessed be thou, Lord God of Israel our Father, for ever and ever.
11  Thine, O Lord is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art exalted as head above all.
12  Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.
13  Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious Name.
