    Hello!

    Could you please help me translate this verse (אֶל קוֹלֵךְ כִּי עָרֵב מַה-נַּפְשִׁי כָלָתָה) ?

    Context:
    שָׁלוֹם רָב שׁוּבֵךְ, צִפֹּרָה נֶחְמֶדֶת
    מֵאַרְצוֹת הַחֹם אֶל-חַלּוֹנִי -
    אֶל קוֹלֵךְ כִּי עָרֵב מַה-נַּפְשִׁי כָלָתָה
    בַּחֹרֶף בְּעָזְבֵךְ מְעוֹנִי

    Thank you!

    Hebrew
    כי = that, which is
    ערב = something that causes pleasure
    מה - so much, (compare to expression like מה יפית = how beautiful you are)
    כלתה - yearned for

    Together: to your voice which is pleasant my soul yearned so much.
