Hebrew term or phrase: baruch ata adonai elohanu meloch haalom / viahafta et adonai elohenu
well, my friend wrote these to me and I don't know what they mean. They are two phrases seperated by the slash. Thank you for your help, and if you can't, then thank you for your time.

Blessed you...


Explanation:
This is a Hebrew prayer.
Baruch ata adonai, elohenu melech ha olam...
\"(be) blessed you, the Lord, our God, king of the world...\"

viahafta et adonai elohenu...
the firs word is mispelled, should read viahavta et adonai elohenu...
the verb is lehehov, to love, the tense is past, but in the Hebrew Bible the past tense has also a meaning of future.
Therefore: \"and you will love the Lord, our God...\"
