If *I* am not the one to translate the Hippocratic Oath, being greek AND a
medical doctor AND a klingon language fan, then who the jay' will???


I swear by Apollo Healer, by Asclepius, by Hygieia, by Panacea, and by all
the gods and goddesses, making them my witnesses, that I will carry out,
according to my ability and judgment, this oath and this indenture.

To hold my teacher in this art equal to my own parents; to make him partner
in my livelihood; when he is in need of money to share mine with him; to
consider his family as my own brothers, and to teach them this art, if they
want to learn it, without fee or indenture; to impart precept, oral
instruction, and all other instruction to my own sons, the sons of my
teacher, and to indentured pupils who have taken the Healer’s oath, but to
nobody else.

I will use those dietary regimens which will benefit my patients according
to my greatest ability and judgment, and I will do no harm or injustice to
them. Neither will I administer a poison to anybody when asked to do so,
nor will I suggest such a course. Similarly I will not give to a woman a
pessary to cause abortion. But I will keep pure and holy both my life and
my art. I will not use the knife, not even, verily, on sufferers from
stone, but I will give place to such as are craftsmen therein.

Into whatsoever houses I enter, I will enter to help the sick, and I will
abstain from all intentional wrong-doing and harm, especially from abusing
the bodies of man or woman, bond or free. And whatsoever I shall see or
hear in the course of my profession, as well as outside my profession in my
intercourse with men, if it be what should not be published abroad, I will
never divulge, holding such things to be holy secrets.

Now if I carry out this oath, and break it not, may I gain for ever
reputation among all men for my life and for my art; but if I break it and
forswear myself, may the opposite befall me.
