[tlhIngan Hol] According to Matthew chapter 1 (quotations punctuated)

Some time ago, when I started translating the Gospel of Matthew, I
didn't know how to punctuate quotations.

So, now that I think I know, I decided before proceeding with the
fourth chapter, to repost the first three chapters, with the
quotations punctuated.

I decided to punctuate quotations by using >>> quotation <<<, because
I like >>> quotation <<< more than <<< quotation >>>. And I decided to
use triple angled brackets, because in a long passage they stand out
more than single ones.

However..

There are parts, where within a quotation there are other quotations,
e.g, when a parable is spoken, and inside that parable there are
dialogues.

I decided that for there, I will use single angle brackets i.e. > quotation <.

Anyways, I've decided all the above, and bIQ'a'Daq 'etlh vIvo'pu'. jIwuq rIntaH.

And after all this klingon crap, here is the first chapter..
