>Thank you so  much.  No, this is not a joke at all.  We are desperate to help

HH: Yetzer hara means "the evil impulse."  The word shabuim could be a 
plural for shabua' meaning "weeks" or possibly "sevens." The last line 
means "Blessed are you, Lord our God, king, God Almighty." Soren Holst 
is the name of a poster who knows Hebrew, I believe. He is an author of 
a book:

Holst, Soren. Verbs and War Scroll: Studies in the Hebrew Verbal System and
the Qumran War Scroll. Kobenhavn: Det Teologiske Fakultet, Kobenhavns
Universitet, 2004.

The rest of the words are Soren's email address:

Søren Holst sh at teol.ku.dk

I found that searching under Soren Holst's name:

[ANE] Fred Cryer
Søren Holst sh at teol.ku.dk Sun, 3 Mar 2002 16:37:19 +0100 ... me morally 
responsible for everything else published in it). cordially Soren Holst 

The email address is:  sh at teol.ku.dk

The sh stands for Soren Holst evidently.
