Immanuel Frances (1618? – 1710?)
Epitaphs

In Memory of a Miser:
Hungry, despite all the wealth I had hoarded,
I came to this pit, but never felt shorted;
For after, I know, all men breathe their last breath
Not one of them eats in the shadow of death.

עמנואל פראנשיס

לכלי ובשמו
רָעֵב, וְאִם הוֹן רַב כְּבָר גָּנַזְתִּי,
בָּאתִי לְשׁוּחָה זֹאת, וְלֹא רָגַזְתִּי,
כִּי אֵדְעָה כִּי אַחֲרֵי הַמָּוֶת
לֹא יֹאכְלוּ אִישִׁים בְּגֵיא צַלְמָוֶת.
י

Transliteration/תעתיק:

Raʕéiv, ve-ím hon rav kevár ganázti,
Báti le-shuḥáh zot, ve-ló ragázti,
Ki ‘eidʕáh ki ‘aḥaréi ha-mávet
Lo yokhlú ‘ishím be-géi tzalmávet.
