בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה אֲדֹנָי אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם הַגּוֹמֵל לְחַיָּבִים טוֹבוֹת שֶׁגְּמָלַנִי כֹּל טוֹב

Barukh atah adonai eloheinu melekh ha'olam, ha-gomel l’khayavim tovot sheg’malani kol tov.

(Feminine G-d language)

בְּרוּכָה אַתְּ יָהּ אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם הַגּוֹמֶלֶת לְחַיָּבִים טוֹבוֹת שֶׁגְּמָלַנִי כֹּל טוֹב

Brukhah at yah eloheinu ruakh ha'olam, ha'gomelet l’khayavim tovot, sheg’malani kol tov.

Blessed are You, O Lord our God, ruler of the Universe, who bestows kindness on those who are committed, and who has granted to me all kindness.


(Feminine recipient of blessing in parenthesis) מִי שְגָמָלְךָ (שְגָמָלֵך) כֹּל טוֹב הוּא יִגְמָלְךָ (יִגְמְלֵךְ) כֹּל טוֹב סֶלָה
