In Ge'ez it is "Egzee'o tesahalene"

In Amharic it is "Abetu maren" or "Abetu yikir belen"

In a Coptic Church you hear it in three languages (other than English):

Arabic:  Ya Rabo Irham!
Greek:  Kyrie Eleison (yes we Copts say this a lot)
Coptic:  Efnouti Nai Nan (rarely said)

God bless.

Classical Armenian:

Der voghormya

The gh is kind of like a French r, but it's more of a glide.

Technically isn't "Ef Nooti Nai Nan" (the) God have mercy on us, with "Lord have mercy" being "Ep Chois Nai Nan" (with both used liturgically)?

Actually come to think of it, you're right.  My bad...it's Ep Chois Nai Nan.

Thanks Jonathan;

Even in the Ethiopian Church we use 'Chois Nai Nan' Followed by "keri'ye,liasone" albeit only during holy week prostrations. It is redundant.

In Spanish, it is "Señor ten piedad".  Wink

Related: Je nai nan in Spanish and 5 other languages, courtesy of the Coptic mission to the faithful in Bolivia, where now over 400 native Bolivians attend liturgy regularly at the Cathedral of St. Mary and St. Mark in the capital city of La Paz.

I hope you guys are as excited to add more "non-traditional" languages to this thread as I am.  Smiley

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
