#One should say the words "Vaya'avor Hashem Al Panav" together with the Shaliach Tzibbur quietly and then say the Yud Gimmel [[Middot]] HaRachamim aloud.<ref>Chazon Ovadyah (Yamim Noraim, pg 32) based on the Arizal </ref>#One should be careful to pause in between the two names of Hashem in the Yud Gimmel [[Middot]] HaRachamim.<ref>Kaf Hachaim 131:20, Ben Ish Chai Parashat Ki Tisa Halacha 11, Chazon Ovadyah (Yamim Noraim, p. 32), Yalkut Yosef (Moadim p. 14, 5748 edition) </ref># One should bow slightly when saying "Hashem , Hashem" in the Yud Gimmel [[Middot]] HaRachamim.<ref>Chazon Ovadyah (Yamim Noraim pg. 32) .
