comment Wishes to a mourner in addition to “Hamokom Yenachem Eschem”
@Gershon, I have no idea why or when it was added. Note that the Yiddish phrase is not an exact translation of the Hebrew verse. I suspect that the Yiddish variant was the original (or an original) and was added because many people simply did not know Hebrew. Then in Israel in many communities the trend reversed - many people do not speak Yiddish, so a suitable substitute from Tanach was found. This is just a conjecture.
