  5. Ar Yehóva5 undulendë tirien i osto ar i mindon ya Atani carastaner,
  6. Ar equë Yehóva, "Yé, naltë er lië, ar illi mici te samir er lambë ar si ná i minya nat ya cariltë; sí munta ya meriltë carë nauva tien úcárima6."
  7. Tula, alvë undulelya ar carë rúcinë lambeltar, i lá hanyuva quén lambë exëo."
  8. Sië Yehóva vintanë te tó ter palúrë cemeno, ar pustaneltë carasta i osto.
  9. Etta mo antanë san i essë Vável7, an tassë Yehóva carnë rúcinë lambi i quanda cemeno, ar tó vintanes te ter cemen.

Notes

  1. Sinear·nóressë: Quenyarized Shinear in a construction after the attested "Elenna·nóressë."
  2. yuhtaneltë: "they used." "Yuhta-" is from the primitive root YUK, cognate with "Noldorin" "iuitho."
  3. morihimma: bitumen, that is, a black, sticky gum-like substance like asphalt that can, apparently, be used as mortar. It's a compound of "mori" + "himma," which is derived from himya-, to adhere, root KHIM. "Himma" is glue, or gum, or resin, in other words, any kind of sticky goop.
  4. telarhimma: mortar. "telar" (brick) + "himma" as above.
  5. Yehóva: Quenyarization of Hebrew "YHWH."
  6. úcárima: ú (not) + cár (root "car-," "to do") + ima (adjectival suffix meaning –able); impossible, not doable.
  7. Vável: Quenyarization of Babel.
