It seems like Maltz was looking into the future, because in the second
episode of LDS, there was a song that included that old word.
The phrase was translated in 2019, before the new words was discovered.
LDS premiered mid 2020, which is after the word was revealed.

nach Hom was used for ages as a translation for "skull" before we learned DughrI'. I think it's in Hamlet.
