And Isaac went forth

To meditate in the shaded field of his burial place
In his Torah (scholarship), his wisdom and all of his righteousness
The Rabbi Rav Yitzchak the son of R. Yechezkel, may his memory
         be for blessing
[Sh]apr ik
He departed with a good name on the 16 of Kislev
5657 (1897).  May his memory be for blessing

 

-----
The second line is a reference to Genesis 24:63.  This the prelude to when Isaac meets Rebecca wherein it states and Isaac went out to meditate in the field
