The phrase also appears in the orthodox Jewish prayer book. The expression does not appear in Hebrew literature before the rebirth of modern Hebrew in the last century.
In modern Hebrew it is commonly used in contexts such as ynet. I venture to guess that the expression migrated from the Arabic to the Jewish colloquial in Andalusia and from there to the Yiddish. A quote from Arabic literature of the period might answer the question more conclusively. In any event, the expression is loaned in English. The expression can be used to indicate true heartfelt agreement and can also be used sarcastically or wryly as in "would that it were so", or "insha'alah".
The prayer of the poor goes from their lips to the ears of God , and His judgment comes speedily. Idiom expressing a wish that the desires of the person to whom the saying is spoken will come true.

I'm Jewish but was brought up outside the community. When my friends use it, it takes on the meaning of "You said it!
You hit the nail on the head! It's not hard to conclude that the phrase is one of the Yiddishisms that has entered mainstream American culture.

This eminent publisher and translator insists stringently that only persons of a moral character can expect success in the use of the foregoing method. Selig: Gottfried Selig , publisher of the German Leipzig periodical Jude, about Jewish customs and practices.
It cannot be denied that true, wise and enlightened Kabbalists lived at one time, and that some still live. But such do not wander from place to place, offering their art for sale, in order that they may accumulate wealth, but they are satisfied to remain quietly in the pillared palace of Solomon, where they are constantly employed in gathering divine wisdom, so that as they express it , they may finally become worthy to receive the hidden gifts from above.
When I once asked him why he refused to write a desired amulet for a noble lord, who offered him a large sum for his services, he answered me with an adage from the well-known Pirke Awoth Extract or Fragment from the Fathers : "Deitschtammasch Betaggo Chalof," that is to say, "whosoever accepts the crown for his reward, will perish suddenly. Not for all the money in the world would I do such a thing.
For my necessary support I do not feel any concern, for the Almighty has methods to support me if I trust in Him. Why, he even cares for the sparrow. Let this suffice for this one kind of men. But that Kabbalists live and still live, who engaged in experiments, and who performed wonderful works, and who will yet do wonderful things, is also an undeniable fact, unless we are prepared to condemn all that was ever said upon this subject by renowned men of wisdom.
From My Lips to God's Ears by M.A. Walker
The celebrated and well-known Prussian Hussar, Lord of Archenwood declares, in a description of London, that there lives a man in that city, whose name is Doctor Falcon, who is known to be a great Kabbalist, and who is visited and consulted by the most honorable and intelligent people of London.
He states further, that this same Dr. I confidently hope and trust, and I can assert without hesitation, that my little book cannot have a tendency to foster superstition. Before concluding my preface, it is necessary to give the reader some instruction concerning the arrangement of this volume. This fact should not prevent any one from purchasing the book. Because all the words printed in Hebrew and Chaldaic, which are intended to be impressed Upon the mind, are also printed in English in plain terms, and they have been carefully translated.
So far as the Hebrew passages are concerned, the meaning of each passage and experiment follows immediately in English, or it is placed beneath the Hebrew expression. It is universally known and acknowledged, that we are named after the most holy name of the Ruler of the World, and that we receive the holy Decalogue or the written law from him.
It is further well known that in addition to the laws which he gave to Moses engraved upon stone, he also gave to him certain verbal laws, by which, through his protracted stay upon the mountain Sinai, where all doctrines, explanations of mysteries, holy names of God and the angels, and particularly how to apply this knowledge to the best interest of man, were entrusted to him.
All these doctrines, which God pronounced good, but which were not generally made known, and which in the course of time were called The Kabbalah, or Traditions, Moses communicated, during his life, to Joshua, his successor. Joshua handed them over to the elders, the elders gave them to the judges, and from the judges they descended to the prophets. Therefore do we know that in the Thora are many names of the Most High and his angels, besides deep mysteries, which may be applied to the welfare of man, but which, on account of the perverseness of humanity and to guard against their abuse, have been hidden from the great mass of human beings.
Everything that I have here stated is as clear as the Sun, and needs no further proof, and it is equally clear and incontrovertible that the All-merciful gave the Thora in the beginning to promote the best interests of the soul and the body of man at the same time. On this account, the expression. And Solomon says in his Proverbs vi. Our wise men declare, "He who will daily live closer to God, who deserves to unite his soul with Him, and who is willing to live in the closest communion with him, should often pray the Psalms with fervor and devotion.
Happy the man who does this daily and hourly, for his reward will be great. We can, therefore, implicitly trust in the doctrines of the enlightened Kabbalists, when they assert that the Almighty accorded equal talents and powers to the Psalms as he did to the Thora, and that in them many names of the Most High Majesty of God and his angels, besides, many mysteries, are hidden. Yes, dear reader, you must not doubt.
Through a pious life and by a rational use of the Psalms you may obtain the grace of God, the favor of princes and magistrates and the love of your fellow-men. But the correctness of it is also established by the teachings of the Talmud and of the old wise men, who assure us, that many of our famous forefathers availed themselves of apparently supernatural means from time to time, to protect their best interests.
The truth of this I can establish by the most trustworthy witnesses; yea, I could even mention some great men, who, by a proper use of the Psalms, performed great works. Such examples are rare. Let it suffice. As for example, to cast out evil spirits, to relieve deep melancholy and to cure grievous diseases; to set free prisoners who have been unjustly imprisoned; to arrest and resist enemies, opponents, murderers, and highway robbers; to quench the fiercest fires; to resist floods of water, to defend innocence and to reveal, it, and to foster good fortune, well-being and peace in a general manner.
Read the treatise on this subject, of the excellent Rabbi Schimschon bar Abraham, in his book entitled Responsiones Raschaba. Do not, however, be discouraged for I am really endeavoring to promote your best interests and shield you from harm. If you are willing to avail yourself of the means indicated, I warn you not to attempt it in a case of extreme necessity, and when there is no other help at hand.
The ordained Psalm, for this or the other undertaking, besides the appropriate prayer, you must pray with a broken and contrite heart to God, and in addition to this, keep in mind the added holy name with its letters, which are given the wise Kabbalists. At the same time you must have your undertaking continually before your eyes.
I must say to you, if you wish to console yourself with this help, that you must live in such a manner that no crime or willful sin can trouble your conscience, for it is well known, that the prayer of the ungodly is not acceptable to God. And herewith I commit you to the protection of the Most High. Psalm 1. The holy name is called , Eel Chad , which signifies, great, strong, only God, and is taken from the four following words: Aschre , verse 1; Lo , verse 4; Jatzliach , verse 3; Vederech , verse 6.
Admonition of the Translator. He can pray, read and write everything in his mother tongue; only the holy name of God and the angels that may occur in the experiment, must, under all circumstances, be written and retained in the mind in the Hebrew tongue for they must in no case be uttered , because, on the contrary, a wrong direction might otherwise easily be given to the experiment, and consequently it would lose all its holiness, worth, and efficiency.
With this pronunciation we must all be well satisfied, and, therefore, I must write all similar words and names, from the letters of which the holy names are taken, in Hebrew. In order, however, that the reader may read all similar occurring names and words in his mind and retain them, I have written all the Hebrew words with English letters together with their meaning. Psalm 2. The words, the letters of which constitute this holy name, are taken from Rageschu , verse 1; 4 Nossedu , verse 2; and Jozer , 5 verse 9. EE: Jozes.

The holy name is: 6 Adon Lord , and is found in the words: Weattae verse 3; Baadi , verse 3; Hekizoti , verse 5; and Hascheini , verse 7. The prayer is as follows: Adon Lord of the world may it please thee to be my physician and helper.
Heal me and relieve me from my severe headache and backache, because I can find help only with Thee, and only with Thee is counsel and action to be found. S reads "ShDVN" rascal which is clearly an error. Psalm 4. The prayer is as follows: May it please Thee, oh, Jiheje , to prosper my ways, steps and doings.

The prayer is as follows: Jehovah my Father, may it please Thee, for the sake of the great, mighty, holy and adorable name, Jeschajah Baal Hatschna , that is, Help is with the Lord, for he is the Lord of help, he can help, which name is contained in this Psalm, heal me from my diseases, infirmities, and from the pain of my eyes, for thine is the power and the help, and thou alone art mighty enough to help; of this I am certain, and therefore I trust in thee.
Further it is said: If a traveler encounters danger by land or sea, he shall, when there is no other help to hope for, pray this Psalm seven times, and each time with full confidence in the mighty and sure help of the Almighty, and add thereto: Jeschajah , Lord of help! Hear me for the sake of thy great and most holy name, for thine is the power and the help. Psalm 7. EE: "Al bam, and the letters must be transposed. S misreads IDNI.

If you have a case to decide before the court, and you have reasons to fear an unfavorable or partial verdict, then pray this Psalm slowly before you appear in the presence of the judge, thinking at the same time of Eel Elijon and of the righteousness of your cause, and as you approach the judge pray as follows: Oh, Eel Elijon!
Give unto my words power and strength and let me find favor. Psalm 8. The prayer reads as follows: May it please thee, Oh Rechmial Eel to grant that I may obtain love, grace, and favor in the eyes of men according to thy holy will. Psalm 9. This Psalm should also be prayed against the power and malignity of enemies. In the first instance write this Psalm, with its holy name, upon pure parchment, with a new pen, and hang it around the patient's neck.

Finally, it is said, that the daily praying of this Psalm will change enemies into friends, and will disperse all pain and sorrow. TEXT Psalm The prayer is as follows: May it be thy holy will, Oh, Jah, Jenora, to make my journey prosperous, to lead me in pleasant paths, to protect me from all evil, and to bring me safely back to my loved ones, for thy mighty and adorable name's sake.

No man will be able to attack him or to injure him, and no gun can harm him. This wonderful saying is as follows: See and know, that I am He! I am He, and besides me there is no other God.

For I stretch out my hand toward heaven that is, I swear by heaven , and say: I am He that liveth forever. Who is like unto thee; a people whose help is Jehovah.

Man, as the highest individuality on the earth, which served the ancients as the centre of the universe, reflects in his being as a microcosm, the macrocosm.
In that place it is said: Three principal letters, Aleph, Mem, Schin , correspond in the earth with air, water and fire; in man with the breast, belly, and head; in the year with mild temperature, cold and heat. The remaining twelve simple letters correspond in the world with Aries, the Bull, the Twins, the Crab, the Lion, the Virgin, the Balance, the Scorpion, the Bowman, the Goat, the Waterman, the Fishes; in man, the organs of sight, hearing, smelling, speaking, tasting, copulating, to put things in motion the hands , to feel anger, to laugh, and to sleep; and in the year to the twelve months.
The spheres of the stars is like a king in the country; the heart of man is like unto a king in battle. S: Das Buch Jezira. EE: Jeziro. This is one of the earliest and most important of the books of the Kabbalah. While it is not a section of the Talmud, it is mentioned therein Sanhedrin 65b. The Tali, the ecliptic, and the heart, are the points of concentration and digression of the primum movens 3 of the Macro- 4 and Microcosm. The Tali, already mentioned, is declared by all the ancients, and among others by Rabbi Jehuda Hallewi, 5 "to be the Dragon known in astronomy which the Arabs call Goshar.
The Gymnosophists termed the distance of the Moon at the point of her intersection in the ecliptic, Patona Chandera: "The offended dragon" which, however, seems impossible, for the book of Yetzirah gives the Tali as the primum movens First Mover of the whole universe. Accordingly the Tali can be nothing else than the world serpent Seschat Adiseschen Wasughi 7 of the ancient Hindus, which served them as a symbol of the Divine protection and of eternity.
EE: Primum mevens. EE follows S in reading "Makro. Jehuda Hallewi Jewish poet, physician, and philosopher. EE: Hallawi. EE: Bashar. Also spelled "Vasuki. EE: Adischen Wasughl. We have much less to do with the question how man as the Microcosm, through his spiritual powers, which he can bring into action through his will and through the mighty word operates on the whole universe, than with the physical and especially with the magical influence of the whole universe upon man as the part of nature.
Admitting this constant struggle of man with surrounding nature, the book of Yetzirah compares as already stated, the heart, as the fountain of life, to a king in battle, who in the beginning overpowers and subdues his enemies, but who notwithstanding, succumbs to the strife in the end.
Among these may be classed, menstruation in women, the different phases of worm diseases according to the different phases of the Moon, the increase and decrease of certain cutaneous diseases, etc. Reil 9 mentions, that the influence of the Moon in causing dysentery has been recognized by many eminent physicians, who, it is said, have observed that the attacks of dysentery are more frequent in new moon and full moon than at any other periods. The Brahmins also give warning against the new moon. Kant says: "It is a strong argument in favor of the hypothesis, that the Moon influences diseases, from the fact that the deaths from fever in Bengal were greatly multiplied during an eclipse of the Sun, etc.
The influence of the light of the Sun and the Moon upon humanity must have been evident in the earliest period, and it was soon admitted that it affected mightily both the well-being of man, and his frame of mind, as well as the exhibitions of the various temperaments.
Acknowledging the injurious effects of the Sun and Moon, the Psalmist says: "The Sun will not harm by day, neither the Moon by night. Abaii 11 says: The prophet speaks of the healing Sun, for the rays of the Sun possess healing powers. The Talmud says: "God hung a precious stone around the neck of Abraham; all they that were sick and gazed thereon became well.
But the Ancients also recognized a physical influence of the rest of the planets and the whole host of stars upon man. God said: No, thy son shall be thy heir. Then spake God and said: Get thee away from thy astrology, the Israelite is not subjected to the constellations.
On the writing table of Rabbi Jehoschua ben Levi 13 was found written, says the Talmud: "Whoever is born on Sunday will be distinguished above others. Light and darkness were created on the Sabbath. He who is born on Monday will always be a passionate man, for on this day the waters were divided. Whoever is born on Tuesday will become rich and given to pleasure; on this day all herbs were created.
Whoever is born on Wednesday will be wise and happy: on this day the stars of the firmament were created. He who is born oh Thursday will be constantly employed in works of love. Whoever is born on Friday will become active in good works. Whoever is born oft the Sabbath will also die on the Sabbath, because the Sabbath was desecrated on his account. Raba, the son of 14 Rabbi Schila adds: He will be called holy. Rabbi Chanina 15 said to his pupils: Go to the son of Levi, and say: Not the constellation of the day has an influence but the stars of the hour of birth. He that is born under the influence of the Sun is gifted with beauty, eats and drinks of his own possessions, but his secrets will become known; should he become a thief, he will be unlucky.
He who is born under the influence of the Moon will learn to bear hardships. He builds and moves in, moves in and builds, eat and drinks of the possessions of the stranger; his secrets remain hidden, and as a thief he will be fortunate.
