EXPLANATION OF THE GLOSSING SYSTEM
(to understand how I describe the signs in this translation).
1. (Role play Jesus) ME FORGET (2h)YOU MY PEOPLE, NEVER.
MY HANDS HAVE YOUR"all" PICTURE CARVED-ON-lf&rt-PALM.
ME FORGET (2h)YOU, NEVER.
LEFT-ALONE (2h)YOU LIKE PARENT GONE, NOT-THAT.
FORGET, IMPOSSIBLE. WHY? ME CHERISH (2h)YOU.
2. MOTHER FORGET TOGETHER BABY? CAN'T.
WOMAN PREGNANT NOT LOOK-FORWARD BABY BORN, NO-NO.
MAYBE SELECT-FEW CAN. YES, MAYBE SELECT-FEW CAN.
BUT ME, IMPOSSIBLE. WHY?
ME CHERISH (2h)YOU. (Repeat first verse.)
Notes: CARVED-ON-lf&rt-PALM - Look at palm while FT of [A dot] carves a picture on the dominant palm, then switch dominance and carve on the ND palm.
LEFT-ALONE - (2h), POs ><, FOs away, descend in the place where the person or thing is left.
GONE - [5^], PO > face, FO up, moves dowards and closes to a [O^], while the NDH is a [B], PO > singer, FO > DS held further away and in neutral space.
NOT-THAT - (2h), POs away, FOs up, wave from side to side symmetrically.
CHERISH - (2h)[5:], hold FTs by the sides of the chin and move down while maintaining contact and closing to (2h)[S].
NO-NO - , PO away, FO up, is shaken side to side with hu.
SELECT-FEW - [S], PO down, FO away flicks out index finger > NDS, > center, > DS to indicate that there are some but not many.
1. I will never forget you, my people; I have carved you on the palm of my hand. I will never forget you; I will not leave you orphaned. I will never forget my own.
2. Does a mother forget her baby? Or a woman the child in her womb? Yet even if these forget, yes, even if these forget, I will never forget my own.
