Great! I really like looking at different translations in our conlangs. Here's the Xara version: 'lu Xara ha oras jilan xam Ixo Mixiha-ir ne xi a oras jilan xam isir.' (if Xara past-tense be-it good enough Jesus Christ-for then affirmative present-tense be-it good enough me-for) Proper names in Xara, including those of countries and languages, use the word in the original language of that place/ person, normalised in the Xara sound system. Hence, I've used the Aramaic version of Jesus' full name. xo kaxalme jilfejan, (with best wishes,) Jim. ------------------
