If I Forget Thee, Jerusalem Analysis

If I forget thee, Jerusalem,

Then let my right be forgotten.

Let my right be forgotten, and my left remember.

Let my left remember, and your right close

And your mouth open near the gate.



I shall remember Jerusalem

And forget the forest -- my love will remember,

Will open her hair, will close my window,

will forget my right,

Will forget my left.



If the west wind does not come

I'll never forgive the walls,

Or the sea, or myself.

Should my right forget

My left shall forgive,

I shall forget all water,

I shall forget my mother.



If I forget thee, Jerusalem,

Let my blood be forgotten.

I shall touch your forehead,

Forget my own,

My voice change

For the second and last time

To the most terrible of voices --

Or silence.

.: :.

There are errors in the translation. The most severe error is the word "hair", whereas the Hebrew word is "gate"! The whole difference between the two is a dot on the right or on the left side of the letter shin.
