Do koni ma choser
delo koni ma koni
Zeh maamar shenemar bemaarovo

Didoh bei kulo bei
Deloi doh bei ma bei
Zeh maamar shenemar bemaarovo

Translation:
If one bought (religion), what will be missing?
If one did not buy it, what did they buy?

This idiom was said in the “west.”*

Whoever has it (religion) in him, has it all.
Whoever has it not in him, what does he have?

This idiom was said in the “west.”*

*=West in this case (the Talmud Bavli) usually means Eretz Yisrael, which is west of Bavel. However, I saw somewhere else that this phrase might refer to Moshe Rabbeinu in the desert.
