The third blessing is "Bohnay Y'rusholoyim".
Both King David and King Solomon set down the words of thisblessing. King David wrote "on Yisroel, Your nation, and onJerusalem,Your city." King Solomon continued "on Yourgreat and holy House...". The "brocha" is a littledifferent now, than it was in the times of King David. In KingDavid's time, the "brocha" was that Jerusalem shouldcontinue to have peace. Today, because we are in exile, theprayer is that Jerusalem and the Bays Hamikdosh should beREbuilt.
