so I am currently working on a translation of the Bible in Dovahzul using the legacy dictionary. And I am translating from the Hebrew. The verse is Genesis 6:4. The Hebrew word is ?ha-nephiliym? which is translated in several ways, generally relating to the Hebrew word ?la-nefil? meaning ?to fall? either meaning ?they who fall upon their enemies? or ?they who have fallen? they also seem to use the word to mean ?giants?. My question is for dovah, which should I use? Transliteration ?nefiliim?? Or loan translation, ?hotte?, ?mahlaanikke?, or ?mahikke??

@Liis to Fall upon means to attack.

Here's how I've currently translated the verse in question:
Runic:
[Nefiliim lost ko gol ko daar sulle, ahrk mindin daar ahk, fod kulle do Ra meyz wah monne do jul, ahrk nust kiin kiir wah niin, Nust lost zoklot muz do lein.]
Roman:
"Nefiliim lost ko gol ko daar sulle, ahrk mindin daar ahk, fod kulle do Ra meyz wah monne do jul, ahrk nust kiin kiir wah niin, Nust lost zoklot muz do lein."

I personally think it's fine to leave it as "Nefiliim".

Oh wow, I'm glad I came across this. I agree with Liis, especially since it's a Hebrew-specific title given to them, even if they're giants.

Kogaan! I ended up going with transliteration.
