MI HA'ISH

Mi-ha'ish, hechafetz chayim;
Ohev yamim, lir'ot tov.
Netzor leshon'cha meira';
Us'fateh'cha, midaber mirmah.
Sur mera' va'aseih-tov;
Bakesh shalom verodfeihu.

WHO IS THE MAN

Who is the man, who desires life
And loves days, to see good (in them)?
Guard your tongue from evil,
And your lips from speaking deception.
Turn away from evil and do good;
Seek peace and pursue it.

 

מִי-הָאִישׁ

מִי-הָאִישׁ, הֶחָפֵץ חַיִּים;
אֹהֵב יָמִים, לִרְאוֹת טוֹב.
נְצֹר לְשׁוֹנְךָ מֵרָע;
וּשְׂפָתֶיךָ, מִדַּבֵּר מִרְמָה.
סוּר מֵרָע, וַעֲשֵׂה-טוֹב;
בַּקֵּשׁ שָׁלוֹם וְרָדְפֵהוּ.
