Mi ha-ish hechafeitz chayim,
oheiv yamim lir'ot tov?

N'tzor l'shoncha meira
us'fatecha midabeir mirma;
sur meira va'asei tov
bakeish shalom v'rodfeihu
מִי-הָאִישׁ, הֶחָפֵץ חַיִּים;
אֹהֵב יָמִים, לִרְאוֹת טוֹב.

נְצֹר לְשׁוֹנְךָ מֵרָע;
וּשְׂפָתֶיךָ, מִדַּבֵּר מִרְמָה.
סוּר מֵרָע, וַעֲשֵׂה-טוֹב;
בַּקֵּשׁ שָׁלוֹם וְרָדְפֵהוּ.

Translation:

Who is the man that desireth life, and loveth days, that he may see good therein?
Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
Depar​t from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
