ViewMate gravestone help requested #translation


Dubin, David M. MD
 

H(ere) L(ies)
Our dear father
Straight of heart, honored and flawless
He supported the poor all his days
He honored the holy with his intellect
He walked faithfully in god’s path
Pure and esteemed, crown of our head
Cherished father, our hearts’ glory 
Yaakov (=Jacob) Zev
son of Benjamin Beinish
died 21 Shevat (5)704

Then the boilerplate abbreviation “may his soul be bound in the bonds of (everlasting) life”

I can read his name as follows:

Yakov Zev son of Benjamin Beinish

Hope this helps.

Friends,

Please translate the Hebrew on my great grandfather's gravestone. It looks like a poem with the first letter of each line spelling his name in Hebrew at:
