Re: If English was good enough for Jesus ... (was Re: slowness...)

In Gevey:

Mik iñgleske nedz jaakra ë zharhi-skone, mañ ke nets te ë zharhi-skone

  mik - if (switch conjunction)
  iñgleske - English (subject noun)
  nets - for (possessive coordinating conjunction)
  jaakra - god (subject noun)
  ë - is (equative verb)
  skone - good (adjective)
  zharhi - just enough, perfect (selective adjective anchor pronoun)
  man - then (switch conjunction)
  ke - it (subject personal pronoun)
  te - I (subject personal pronoun)

Of course, the citizens of Gevilla would certainly disagree: God would
naturally speak "gheve" - English being just some mad constructed
language invented by a small group of acedemics and their drinking
friends who should know better.
