Old Georgian phrases and sentences 57 (Isa 5:22)   Leave a comment

In the previous post we had the word თაფლუჭი. Here is another occurrence of the word in Isa 5:22 (Oshki).

First, the Old Greek has

οὐαὶ οἱ ἰσχύοντες ὑμῶν οἱ τὸν οἶνον πίνοντες καὶ οἱ δυνάσται οἱ κεραννύντες τὸ σικερα

The Old Georgian version reads

ვაჲ ძლიერთა მაგათ თქუენთა რომელნი ღჳნოსა სუმენ, და მძლავრნი იგი თქუენნი <რომელნი> იწდევენ თაფლუჭსა

  • მაგ- is the obl. stem for ეგე
  • სუმ-ენ pres 3pl სუმა to drink (aor 3pl is სუ-ეს, NB no -მ-)
  • მძლავრი strong, mighty
  • ი-წდევ-ენ pres 3pl წდევა to pour
  • თაფლუჭი mead (cf. თაფლი honey)

Until next time, გაგიმარჯოთ! Prost!
