ESHET CHAYIL 

Eshet chayil mi yimtza
verachok mip'ninim michrah
batach bah lev ba'alah
veshalal lo yech'sar.
Gemalat'hu tov ve'lo ra
kol yemei (yemei) chayeiha
darshah tzemer ufish'tim
vata'as bechefetz kapeiha

Haytah ka'oniot socher
mimerchak tavi lach'mah
vetakam be'od lailah
vatiten teref leveitah
vechok lena'aroteiha
zam'mah sadeh vatikachehu
mipri chapeiha nat'ah karem
chag'rah be'oz motneiha
vate'ametz zro'oteiha.

A WOMAN OF VALOUR 

Who can find a wife of valour
For her worth is far above jewels
Her husband has full confidence in her
And lacks no value.
She brings him good, not harm,
All the days of her life
She selects wool and flax
And works with eager hands

She is like the merchant ships,
She brings her food from afar.
She gets up while it is still night
She gives food for her family
And portions for her servant girls
She considers a field and takes it
By the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard
She works by the strength of her own hips
Her arms are strong for her tasks

ESHES CHAYIL

Eshes chayil mi yimtzo
verochoik mip'ninim michro
botach boh leiv ba'aloh
vesh'lol lo yech'sor.
Gemolas'hu toiv ve'loi ro
kol yemei, yemei chayeiho
darshah tzemer ufish'sim
veta'as bechefetz kopeiha

Haytah ke'onios soichar
mimerchak tavi loch'mo
vetakem be'od lailoh
vetiten teref leveiso vechok lene'aroseiha
zimemo sadeh vetikchehu
mipri kapeiho not'o kerem
chogoro be'oz motneiho
vete'amez zro'oseiho.
