Just noticed this line in /paq'batlh:/

    DaH mararchuq
         mayIntaHvIS
         wa' Dol bIH qa''e' porgh'e' je

    We are now connected,
         Spirit and body are one,
         Until our time comes.

What's of interest is the sentence *wa' Dol bIH qa''e' porgh'e' je.* 
This demonstrates clearly that when you've got a "to be" sentence with a 
topic as well as a noun, the pronoun agrees with the topic, not the 
first noun. *wa' Dol* is singular; *qa''e' porgh'e' je* is plural. *bIH* 
is plural. It's not *wa' Dol 'oH qa''e' porgh'e' je.*
