A Klingon Word From the Word

I'd like to start a series of reflections on the Scriptures, using my experimental Klingon Bible, the Klingon Language Version as a source of things to write about.

Long term, I'm hoping to make this into a podcast, patterned after "A Word from the Word".

As I've noted elsewhere, the KLV is not a true translation of the scriptures, but a relexification - a word for word replacement - based on the World English Bible. While resulting in grammatically incorrect Klingon, this Bible and the lexicon developed for this version was an interesting way to examine and think about the words in God's Word. I hope the words reflected here lead you into the "Hemey vo' QaQtaHghach" (the paths of righteousness).
