Hebrew term or phrase: Calm Bayta
The word sounds like "calm bayta". The first part of the word has a frothy vowel sound. I think the work has something to do with a house or form of a house. I believe it's a hebrew word. I would like the english translation.

May God bless you Richly,
Helena
English translation:come home; go home;
Explanation:
The word Bayita in hebrew has a connotation of actio towards a house. The word calm is difficult to asociate with bayita. could you provide a context for the phrase. it would facilitate combining the two words

home, house


Explanation:
It sounds as though the word is "habayta," which is the word "home" or "bayit" used as an object, as in "Go Home," or "Lech habayta." it can also mean "to the house," as in "Bring it to the house," or "Tavi et zeh habayta."

"Lijke the shock of a kick"


Explanation:
It sounds more like
כהלם בעיטה = Ke-helem beita

In such a case it means:

"Like the shock of a kick"

Else, more context would help.

Good luck!

bathtub or bathroom


Explanation:
the work is probably "ambatya" and not "calm batya" - the work itself means bathtub but is used to refer to a bathroom that has a bathtub in it (even if the toilet is separate). it is used only when there is a bathtub - if there is only a shower, it is called something else.
