Anthony's right.

Does using a dictionary count as cheating? I worked it out to chapter and verse, but I don't want to spoil it.

I prefer butter on my rolls.

I wonder if whoever gets this right should probably be a bit embarrased, as he admits to speaking fluent Ubbi-Dubbi.

The vocalisations give it away, it's Klingon.

I don't know if it bothers me more that I know this is Klingon Bible or that I am geeek enuff to recognize it...

Is it Shakespeare? After all, Shakespeare is always best in the original Klingon (Star Trek VI).

Since Kim is asking who said it, the correct answer would be that Satan said this to God, concerning Job. Probably not in Klingon, though.

Fortunately Klingon grammar is identical to English so it's easy to translate, especially once you get that Job is Job and not Klingon for some other word. :)

This is from the new translation of the scriptures by the charismatics who claim that it is the true language spoken in heaven by God himself. It is the original language which all language has its roots in. A team of 10 charismatics went back to Mt. Sinai and were up in the mountain for double the time that Moses was- they didn't even have to have their eyes covered because their holiness had reached a point of perfection.

No, it had to be a team of 12 charismatics not 10. They were chosen for the task because they had mastered Wesley's quest.

I forgot to add that the verse (which is hidden in the book of James-but which comes to light in the new translation) explains that we really do not need a mediator if we have committed less than 10 sins in a year.

I am carrying on a dialog within myself which nobody probably cares about but which I am getting a kick out of. Only those who speak in tongues are able to read this new translation and the verse in James is prophesied about in the book of Joel in the Old Testament. This also becomes more clear in the new translation. There are other verses interspersed throughout the new translation which deepen one's understanding of and makes more clear this possibility of non-mediation so the Calvinist's and Lutheran's cannot accuse the Charismatics of using faulty scriptural interpretation techniques.

Also, God's face is revealed to these new bible translators as the preface explains to us as God walked towards them rather then the backwards walk away from Moses. God also was described as breaking bread with the team on several occasions which dispels the myth that God is really not our buddy. He really is a nice guy once you get to know Him better.

Anticipating the Calvinist's question that is seems like a contradiction to have "perfected Wesley's quest" while still allowing for 10 sins per year the translators rather flippantly explain that it is close enough to perfection and leave it at that.
