Hello,

I'm looking for hebrew phrases about determination, being a warrior, perseverance, rising up, overcoming adversity, things of that nature.

Any phrases, paragraphs, whatever, about those things individually or in combination.

Would really appreciate it!

Thanks!

Are you referring to Modern Hebrew or Classic Hebrew based on biblical or religious texts?

Good point!

@M90: I can't give you any phrases but, if you're interested, I can give you Hebrew names (both Modern and Classic) that mean the words and phrases that you've listed.

Welcome to the Judaism forum!

For modern phrases I would suggest you follow The Jerusalem Post editor Liat Collins' regular "Say What" for current Hebrew phrases and their English translation.

I looked through that page, none of those really hit the message I'm looking for. Unless I missed something...

Tehillim is the book of Psalms. the whole book. All 150 Psalms.
the whole book is on the topic you mentioned.

What is the purpose of the "message you are looking for" ? In what context do you seek to use these quotes?
It sounds like you have something specific in mind. What is it? And why do they need to be in Hebrew?

i'm curious
