HaTikva – The Israeli National Anthem with Translation

Israeli National Anthem – HaTikva (The Hope)Israeli Flag - HaTikva The Israeli National Anthem

 

As long as the Jewish spirit is yearning deep in the heart,

With eyes turned toward the East, looking toward Zion,

Then our hope – the two-thousand-year-old hope – will not be lost:

To be a free people in our land,

The land of Zion and Jerusalem.

 

Kol ode balevav
P’nimah –

Nefesh Yehudi homiyah

Ulfa’atey mizrach kadimah
Ayin l’tzion tzofiyah.

Ode lo avdah tikvatenu
Hatikvah bat shnot alpayim:

L’hiyot am chofshi b’artzenu –
Eretz Tzion v’Yerushalayim.

 

כֹּל עוֹד בַּלֵּבָב פְּנִימָה
נֶפֶשׁ יְהוּדִי הוֹמִיָּה,
וּלְפַאֲתֵי מִזְרָח, קָדִימָה,
עַיִן לְצִיּוֹן צוֹפִיָּה,

עוֹד לֹא אָבְדָה תִּקְוָתֵנוּ,
הַתִּקְוָה בַּת שְׁנוֹת אַלְפַּיִם,
לִהְיוֹת עַם חָפְשִׁי בְּאַרְצֵנוּ,
אֶרֶץ צִיּוֹן וִירוּשָׁלַיִם.
