Haven yakir li Efraim, im yeled sha'ashu'im; ki midei dab'ri bo, zachor ezkerenu od, al ken hamu meai lo, rachem arachamenu n'um hashem.
הֲבֵן יַקִּיר לִי אֶפְרַיִם אִם יֶלֶד שַׁעֲשׁוּעִים כִּי מִדֵּי דַבְּרִי בּו זָכר אֶזְכְּרֶנּוּ עוד עַל כֵּן הָמוּ מֵעַי לו רַחֵם אֲרַחֲמֶנּוּ נְאֻם ה':


Is Ephraim a darling son unto Me? Is he a child that is dandled? For as often as I speak of him, I do earnestly​ remember him still; therefore​ My heart yearneth for him, I will surely have compassio​n upon him, saith the LORD.
