"LORD, HAVE MERCY" in your languages
« on: August 08, 2015, 12:28:23 PM »
What do you say "Kyrie eleison/Gospodi pomiluj" in your native language?
Let share from me. I say "Tuhan kasihanilah"  (Indonesian)  :)
Selamatkanlah Tuhan umat-Mu, dan berkatilah warisan milik Mu. Menangkanlah Gereja-Mu melawan musuh-musuhnya. Dan anggotanya lindungilah dengan kuasa Salib Palang-Mu
خلص يا رب شعبك وبارك ميراثك. وامنح ملوكنا المؤمنين الغلبة على البربر، واحفظ بقوة صليبك جميع المختصين بك

You use the formal in Dutch?
Be comforted, and have faith, O Israel, for your God is infinitely simple and one, composed of no parts.

It has a Statenvertaling-ring to it. I like that.

Besides, the archaic form is metrical (being iambic - Hēerĕ hēb gĕnādĕ) and thus has a better 'flow'. The modern version (Hēer hēb gĕnādĕ) isn't metrical.

Grammar question: if you were using gij instead, would you still include the pronoun with the imperative?

I'd use the (now obsolete) subjunctive mood instead with gij. "Moge Gij genade met mij hebben, o Heer." 

Gij + the imperative mood doesn't sound very natural.

Read the updated post, btw. I elaborated a bit.

Spanish:  Señor, ten piedad.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Not my language, but a local language anyway. Swedish: Härre förbarma.

the people on this forum have to stop taking themselves so seriously. None of us are some modern-day Athanasius, we all just have nothing better to do.

In Bulgarian it is Gospodi pomilui.
That would be the same for Church slavic, except the G is pronounced as an "h".

Actually, it is the same, as in some pronunciation variants of Church Slavonic "g" is pronunced as "g"; moreover, even in other variants it's not clear "h", but something between "h" and "g", a bit similar to Arabic ه
