Care to Translate ?

Wanaadi tameedä soto cumjumma'to jooje, chääjäcäinchädäiñe Tönnedö yäätonno 'jemjönö tu'ene'jödöödä. Iiñedö ecaanö’nei annamjö'da na'de, yeichö töwaatamemjönö töweiye na.

This is what the Ye'kwana language looks like when written.
Any one want to venture a guess as to what this could mean?
I will give you three clues.

1) It is a verse from the Bible.

2) It is from the New Testament.

3)




Give it a try! Leave your best guess as a comment!

Asking me to quote the Bible is asking a bit much but is it "and he so loved the world he gave his only son" or some such?

Jackie said...

Wow...Rancher...way to go you. John 3:16 is my guess as well.

Mountain Mama said...

Sorry I don't have a clue either. I would have guessed John 3:16 just because I love it.
"For God so loved the world
that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish but have everlasting life."
What a perfectly beautiful promise!

Kim said...

John 3:16?

~Ginger said...

My guess was the same as those above...your picture helped. Are we right?

Dawn said...

I was going to say the same. Could it be because it's the verse we all learn first in our lives??

Gorgeous sunsets below!

I'm going to venture out on a limb and go with: Momma Roar is a great blogger and has really cute kids?


ha ha ha

Okay, really, John 3:16 (I'm such a follower(

Penless Thoughts said...

God so loved the world :o) YES HE DID AND DOES

Okay I was gonna say John 3:16 but looks like everyone is going in that direction. sooooo...let's see,...how about Romans 10:9?

That if thou shalt believe in thine heart...

The sunsets are beautiful!! What is the name of the waterfall, I think it's the highest one in Venezuela? Angel Falls, maybe? It is absolutely breathtaking! have you had the pleasure of seeing it in person?

Kitty said...

I would say John 3:16, just because of the heart shaped earth?

The pictures of the sunsets are gorgeous, too. You live in an amazing place!!

Becky said...

I was going to guess John 3:16 too, but only because of the picture. There is not one word in there that looks like any language I have ever heard or seen.

Tina said...

I guess the same as all above, and you have been tagged by me for the real mum meme! :):)

Jungle Mom said...

Congratulations ! Rancher, You know more Bible then you let on, huh?

Nspiredbyfaith, I have not seen Angel Falls, but my husband flew there once. I have seen Jimmy Angels plane. He was the American that discovered the falls. Well, except for the Pemon Indians who of course already knew about it!
