Klingon Bible

I was looking for Latin dictionaries to add to my link page, and came across a biblical translation tool to compare the Latin Vulgate with 5 other translations.  At the bottom of the page was an additional translation tool for translating the Bible into  several other versions, including Esperanto and Klingon.  The Bible in Klingon? After laughing hysterically, I tried the links, but they were all broken.  But surely someone somewhere has translated the Bible into Klingon, right?

Sure enough, this translation tool will, among other things, give various Bible verses in parallel translations of the Klingon Language Version, World English Bible, Mando’a Language Version, King James Version, Douay Rheims Version (Roman Catholic), and the Vulgate Version. There is also a Klingon English lexicon and an automated word lookup tool for phrases like “Where do you keep the chocolate?” in Klingon, Romulan, and Vulcan, along with an explanation of why translation tools don’t work.

For those in a meditative mood, there are also several podcasts at the bottom with actual Christian religious meditations based on Klingon translation of words in the 23rd Psalm.  “The paths of righteousness” becomes “mid-course correction” ,  “worst case scenario” is “the shadow of death”, and “restores my soul” is “rebuilt-like new”.

Whoever you are, MrKlingon, thanks for the laugh.
