I'm sure some of you have played the computer game "Diablo I" by Blizzard Entertainment. Along with sundry other dark quotes, the game manual contains the following, purportedly from the Egyptian Book of the Dead: I am yesterday, today and tomorrow, and I have the power to be born a second time. I am the divine hidden soul who created the Gods and gives sepulchral meals to the denizens of the deep, the place of the dead, and heaven... Hail, lord of the shrine that stands in the centre of the earth. He is I and I am he! Back in 2003, I thought this was an excellent passage to translate into Angosey. Tonight, I retranslated it using modern grammar and vocabulary, and I've posted it in case anyone else wants to take a crack at it too! Here's my somewhat pathological interlinear.
