OD EVNECH 
 

Od evnech venivnet
Ir Tziyon letif'eret.
Od yishama bechutzotayich
Zemer chatanim.

Od yasisu bach masos
Hamitavlim alayich,
Lo yosif lavo bach od
Arel vetamei.

Lach nishba ani bi'y'mini,
Otach entzor lead bezichroni.
Kach shanim alpayim
Lach shar bim'lo g'roni.

Od yishama bein chomotayich
Shir shehayu halevi'im
Bamikdash al hadochan
Yom yom kach sharim.

LeDavid, Livnei Korach,
UMizmor leAssaf.
El nekamot, Al hagittit,
Malach geiut laveish.

Lach nishba ani bi'y'mini

I WILL YET BUILD YOU 
Yet I'll Build You and You Will be Built 

I will yet build you and you shall be built,
A city of Zion in splendour.
The singing of bridegrooms
Will again be heard within your courtyards.

People will again rejoice with you -
All those who mourn for you;
No longer will there come within you
The uncircumcised and impure.

I swear to you by my right hand,
That I will guard you in my memory for eternity.
Thus for two millennia
Have I sung to you in full voice.

Within your walls will again resound
The song that once
The Levites sang each day,
On the Temple podium.

"To David", "To the sons of Korach",
And "A hymn to Assaf".
"Lord of Vengeance", "Upon the Gittit",
"He reigns, dressed in majesty".

I swear to you by my right hand
