Proverbs 12: 11-12
He that tilleth his ground shall have plenty of bread; but he that followeth after vain things is void of understanding.

Transliteration from Hebrew:
Shma bni musar avicha
Ve’al titosh torat imecha.
Ki, livyat chen hem leroshecha
Ve’anakim, legargerothecha.

Oved admato yisba lachem
Umeradef reikim yisba rish.

Lema’an telech, bederech tovim
Ve’orchot tzadikim tishmor.
Ki yesharim yishkenu aretz
Utmimim yirtzu ba.

Or tzadikim yismach
Vener resha’im yid’ach
Netzor bni mitzvat avicha
Ve’al titosh torat imecha.
