Keneged Arba Banim by Naomi Shemer

Haggadah Section: -- Four Children

ביום בהיר ונהדר 

יצאו מתוך ההגדה

 חכם ותם רשע גדול

 וזה שלא ידע לשאול

 חכם ותם רשע גדול וזה שלא ידע לשאול


וכשארבעת האחים 

יצאו לנוע בדרכים

 מיד מכל ארבע רוחות 

פרחים הגיעו וברכות 

מיד מכל ארבע רוחות פרחים הגיעו וברכות


פגש חכם בחכמה

 אהב התם את התמימה

 והרשע בתור אישה

 תפס מרשעת איומה

 והרשע בתור אישה תפס מרשעת איומה 

וזה שלא ידע לשאול

 לקח את היפה מכל 

שילב ידו בתוך ידה

 וחזר איתה להגדה 

שילב ידו בתוך ידה וחזר איתה להגדה


לאן הובילו הדרכים?

 היכן ארבעת האחים? 

בשיר שלנו ידידי 

אסור לשאול יותר מדי 

בשיר שלנו ידידי אסור לשאול יותר מדי.

The Four Brothers 

A song by Naomi Shemer

On a wonderful clear day

Out of the Haggadah came 

The wise and the innocent, the wicked

And the one who didn't know how to ask.

And when the four brothers

Began to travel the byways,

Immediately from everywhere came

Greetings and flowers.

The wise met the wise girl

The innocent loved the innocent girl

And the wicked for a wife

Caught himself a wicked girl.

And the one who didn't know how to ask

Found the most beautiful girl,

He took her hand in his

And came back with her to the Haggadah.

Where did the byways lead?

Where are the four brothers?

My friend, in our song

You mustn't ask too much …
