Immanuel Frances (1618? – 1710?)
Epitaphs

In Memory of a Woman with a Jealous Husband:
If you’re viewing this grave, these words on my shrine,
Be very careful, sirs, not to draw near it;
If he saw a man here, that husband of mine
Would be overcome by jealousy’s spirit.

עמנואל פראנשיס

לאשת איש קנאי ובשמה
רוֹאִים בְּצִיּוּן זֶה, אֲשֶׁר אֶצְלִי,
הִשָּׁמְרוּ לָכֶם קְרֹב אֵלָיו,
כִּי אִם אֱנוֹשׁ פֹּה יֶחֱזֶה בַּעְלִי,
רוּחַ קְנָאוֹת יַעֲבֹר עָלָיו.
י

Transliteration/תעתיק:

Ro’ím be-tziyún zeh, ‘ashér ‘etzlí,
Hishamrú lakhém keróv ‘eiláv,
Ki ‘im ‘enósh poh yeḥezú baʕlí,
Rúaḥ kena’ót yaʕavór ʕaláv.
