I have just started learning Hebrew and I found a transliteration for the after meal blessing which includes Adonai and Adonoy; what is the difference between the two?

“Baruch ha-gever asher yivtach ba'Adonai ve-haya Adonoy mivtacho.”

I apologize if this was asked with specific words in Hebrew but it is beyond my understanding at the moment.

  • Where did you find this transliteration (and where is this part of an after meal blessing)? This is from Jeremiah 17:7 which is used in the Uva L'tziyon.

    These two words are identical, and your transliteration is inconsistent. @rosends See: sefaria.org.il/… Commented Mar 15, 2020 at 18:49
  • @Kazibácsi thanks -- I was thinking he meant the blessing, itself and was confused.

If one looks at the Hebrew of the letters of Hashem's name [in בּרכּת המזון in the section of יראו את] are exactly the same. The difference in translation is just some people arguing how it is spelled but it makes no difference.

  • I removed the bit at the end which is completely irrelevant to the question at hand. Please try to make sure your answers stay on topic.
