KI TAVO'U EL HA'ARETZ 

Ki-tavo'u el ha'aretz
Uneta'tem kol etz t'chilah,
Venatan ha'etz pir'yo
Veha'aretz yevulah.

Et linto'a ilanot (x2)
Et linto'a velivnot.

Viy'shavtem ish tachat gafno
Vetachat te'einato,
Vih'yitem ke'etz shatul
Al-palgei mayim.

Et linto'a...

Uv'nitem chorvot 'olam
Shomemot tekomemu,
Vich'yitem al-admat'chem
Lavetach ule'olam.

Et linto'a......





AND WHEN YOU SHALL COME INTO THE LAND 

And when you shall come into the land,
And have first planted all manner of trees,
Then shall the trees yield each its fruit
And the land its harvest.

A time to plant trees
A time to plant and to build.

And you shall sit every man under his vine
And under his fig-tree,
And you shall be like a tree, planted
By streams of water.

A time to plant

And you shall rebuild the old wastes,
You shall raise up the former desolations,
And you shall live upon your land
In security forever more.

A time to plant....
