Migov ri-cavon vay afar
Badam uvayeza
Yukam lanu geza
Gaon venadiv ve aksar
Betar ha-nilkada, Yodefet, Masada
Taromna beoz ve-Hadar

Ivri gam be oni ben sar
Im eved im helech
No sarta be melech
Beketer David ne etar
Baor u-va-seter
Zachor et ha-keter
Ateret gaon ve-Tagar

Al kol ma-atzur umetzar
Im ta-al o-teret
Ve lahav ha-meter
Sa esh le-hazit
"Ein Davar"
Ki sheket hu refesh
Hafker dam va-nefesh
lema-an hahod hanistar

La-amut o likbosh et hahar
Yodefet Masada Betar
From the pit of decay and dust
With blood and sweat
Shall arise a race
Proud generous and cruel
Captured Betar, Yodefet, Masada
Shall arise again In all their stregnth and glory

Even in poverty a Jew is a prince
Whether slave or tramp
You have been created the son of kings
Crowned with the diadem of David
Whether in light or in darkness
Always remember the crown
The crown of pride and Tagar

Through all obstacles and enemies
Whether you go up or down
In the flames of revolt
Carry the flame to kindle
"Never mind"
For silence is filth
Worthless is blood and soul
For the sake of the hidden glory

To die or conquer the hill
Yodefet, Masada, Betar



Note: Betar is a Zionist youth movement founded by Zev Jabotinsky
