I'm trying to find the proper translation of two phrases. I am a recovering alcoholic and would like some reminders that I can keep out in the open that most won't be able to read.
1. Honor thy family
2. Temptation is for the weak
Thank you so much....in advance :)
here are the translations you asked me:
1-“Tuam honora familiam” as well as “Tuam cole familiam” (Honor thy family)
2-“Debilium est temptatio “ (Temptation is for the weak)
Please read more below.
All the best,
-Honor = HONORA (2nd.person singular, present imperative of HONORO, I honor) or COLE (2nd.person singular, present imperative of COLO, I honor)
-thy =TUAM (accusative feminine singular of the possessive TUUS agreed with FAMILIAM)
-family =FAMILIAM (direct object, accusative singular of the feminine noun FAMILIA, 1st. declension)
-Temptation =TEMPTATIO (subject in the nominative case, 3rd declension)
-is =EST (3rd person singular, present indicative of SUM, I am)
-for the weak = DEBILIUM (genitive plural of DEBILIS, 3rd.declension)
As you can see, Latin word order is different from English for in Latin syntactical relationships are indicated by the endings, not by the order of the words.
