A selection of the Mi Yodeya series is being prepared for the hagadah mi yodeya

14 are the books of the Rambam.
15 were the cubits of the Flood.
16 are the maneh of the myrrh.
17 were the Yovel cycles.
18 are the years before marriage.
19 are the years of the calendar.
20 is the age of the Draft.
21 are the days between the straits.
22 are the lines in a mezuzah.
23 are the judges of a small high court.
24 are the divisions of the kohanim.
25 are the letters of Sh'ma.
26 is the gematriya of the Tetragrammaton.
27 are the letters (including final forms).
28 are the "time"s in Koheles.
29 is the height of the red line.
30 is the age of strength.

The only problem is that this list is in English and I customarily recite the first thirteen in the language as they are found in my regular Hagadah. (Some Hebrew-Aramaic hybrid.)

So how do I say these ones in Hebrew (in the same Hebrew-Aramaic style as the rest of the song)?

    I feel like this is the type of question that should be closed, but can't think of any specific reason to close... – רבות מחשבות Mar 18 '18 at 4:03

I will first try transliteration and then use the hebrew keyboard from edit. Obviously someone from Eretz Yisrael would do better.

    I think the OP wants the numbers too. – Monica Cellio Apr 15 '16 at 22:42
  • Is this in pure Hebrew or the Hebrew-Aramaic hybrid found in the rest of the song? – user11667 Apr 17 '16 at 3:17
  • The gender of the numbers should be consistent: ארבעה עשר. Also it seems to me that technically 19 is שנות המחזור הקטן - there are several cycles in the calendar. Also חוט הסקרא - and maybe גובה or מפלס. I don't think עלייה is very clear. And the best of luck if you want to reach the end before זמן קריאת שמע של שחרית. – Epicentre Apr 17 '16 at 5:49
  • @Epicentre The OP asked for this. – sabbahillel Apr 17 '16 at 11:39
  • 24 should be mishmarot. The Beit av is a seventh of each mishmar who served on a particular day of the week that the mishmar served. – Ze'ev wants SE to do teshuva Jul 20 '17 at 3:38
