Hello. I have a couple quick questions about a passage from the paq'batlh.

{tlhIngan wo' nur ghob je
HoSmoH quvvam
che'DI' molor nur ghob je pujchoHpu'}

With it, I restore pride and values
Of the Klingon Empire, for under Molor,
They have grown weak and faint.

(paq'raD 16:7-9)

Shouldn't the third line read:

che'DI' molor, pujchoHpu' nur ghob je

Or am I missing something?

And a quick time question. In the third sentence, this particular
combination of {DI'-choH-pu'} means that in the time span of Molor's reign,
the weakening of {nur} and {ghob} started and then finished, correct? If
so, I find this particular usage of grammar very cool.
