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 עוֹד עַל כֵּן הָמוּ מֵעַי לו רַחֵם אֲרַחֲמֶנּוּ נְאֻם ה':


Is it because Ephraim is my beloved son, or that he is such a lovely child, that whenever I mention him, I yearn for him more and more?
NSCY bencher, pg 105
