IM ESHKACHECH 
YERUSHALAIM 

Im eshkachech Yerushalayim,
Tishkach yemini.
Tid'bak leshoni lechiki,
Im-lo ezkereichi:
Im-lo a'aleh et Yerushalayim
al rosh simchati...
Ha'omrim:
"Aru, aru— ad hayessod bah!"

IF I FORGET THEE 
JERUSALEM 

If I forget thee, O Jerusalem,
Let my right hand forget her cunning.
Let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth,
If I remember thee not;
If I set not Jerusalem
above my chiefest joy.
(Against) who said:
'Rase it, rase it, even to its very foundation.'

 
אִם-אֶשְׁכָּחֵךְ יְרוּשָׁלִָם
Hebrew words

אִם-אֶשְׁכָּחֵךְ יְרוּשָׁלִָם--
תִּשְׁכַּח יְמִינִי.
תִּדְבַּק-לְשׁוֹנִי, לְחִכִּי--
אִם-לֹא אֶזְכְּרֵכִי:
אִם-לֹא אַעֲלֶה, אֶת-יְרוּשָׁלִַם--
עַל, רֹאשׁ שִׂמְחָתִי.
...
הָאֹמְרִים, עָרוּ עָרוּ-- עַד, הַיְסוֹד בָּהּ.
