[tlhIngan Hol] According to Matthew chapter 6

Before I proceed by posting the 6th chapter, there is something I
would like to say.

At another thread, earlier I wrote:

The english translation, doesn't match the klingon; and this happened
because I was in a hurry, hungry, tired, and getting sloppy, I wrote
the first thing that came to mind.

However, as far as the translation of the new testament is concerned,
things are quite different.

A great deal of thought has been put in every line, and every line has
been checked and then checked again, against the original Greek text,
which is my intention to translate as accurately as possible.

Of course, there may be grammar mistakes e.g. a wrong verb prefix, but
unless there is an *obvious* mistake in grammar, then *everything* is
written the way it is, *intentionally*.

And I will mention three examples to demonstrate my point.

1. At some paragraphs, the klingon starts by jesus addressing multiple
people (as evidenced by the {tlhIHvaD jIjatlh..}), and two lines
later, jesus gives instructions to one person. This is not sloppiness
on my part, but something intentional, since this happens in the
original Greek passage too.

2. At this chapter (the 6th), at the 6th line the klingon goes {qoD
pa' yI'el}, for "enter the room of the interior", which is intentional
for reasons which are too numerous to mention (but if someone is
interested, I'd by happy to do so).

3. At this chapter (the 6th), at line 27, the klingon goes {yInDaj
DISmeyvaD wa' vI' wejmaH wa' 'uj chellaH'a' nuv ?} for "is a person
able to add to the years of his life 1.31 'uj ?". Someone could start
saying "how can someone add to his life, a length of linear measure" ?
But this is intentional, since the original Greek goes, "who among you
can add a cubit to his age ?".

So, what I'm trying to say, is that as far as this translation goes,
I'm not fooling around, everything is written after a great deal of
thought and headache, and unless something is an obvious mistake in
grammar, everything, and I mean *everything* is written intentionally.

I don't care what a klingon would and would not say. This translation
*will* be completed, and it *will* be the closest translation possible
to the original Greek.

And unless klingons spoke new testament greek, they can go ngagh'egh,
I never liked them anyway.

(not a christian thing to say..)

oh well, no one is perfect..
