saying “human being” in Hebrew

בן אדם
 
The full term for human being in Hebrew is בֶּן אָדָם (ben ah-DAHM) – literally, son of Adam. The term refers to males and females alike, such that you might correctly say הִיא בֶּן אָדָם טוֹב (hee ben ah-DAHM tohv) – she is a good person.
 
Oftentimes, בן אדם gets shortened to simply אדם. You might also say, היא אדם טוב – she is a good Adam
 
In English it sounds really awkward. But in Hebrew it’s natural.
