Isaiah 2:4, lines 2 and 3:

wa-kittetu harbotâm le-ittîm   wa-hamîtôtêhem le-mazmerôt
lô-yissâ goy el-goy hereb         we-lô-yilmedu 'ôd milkhâmâh

[approximate transliteration from the Biblia Hebraica]

and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more (KJV)

Unfortunately my browser has no facilities for a correct scientific transliteration but I think the simplified lines above will do.

Sing and enjoy
