Friulian language series: Esodo 12, lis plais dal Egjit

In addition to the tenth plague of Egypt, which is la muart dai prins nassûts (the death of firstborns), the twelfth chapter of the book of Exodus treats of such matter: la pasche (the passover); la fieste dal pan cence levan (the feast of bread without leaven); ordins a rivuart de pasche (orders in regard unto the passover); ur puàrtin vie dut ai egjizians (they bear away all from the Egyptians); a partissin, prime conte (they depart, first recounting); lis regulis su la pasche (the rules of the passover). It is in this chapter that the departure of the Israelites from Egypt begins: Israel al partìs dal Egjit (Israel departeth from Egypt).

Vocabulary: (to say), il mês (month), il prin (first), un an (year), fevelâ (to speak), dut (all), la int (people), cussì (so), dîs (ten), ognidun (each), proviodisi (to provide oneself), il cjâf (head), il besteam (cattle), minût (little), la famee (family), la cjase (house), masse (too), piçul (little), un nemâl (animal), il trop (flock), metisi (to put oneself), jessi a stâ (to dwell), plui dongje (nearest), seont (according unto), il numar (number), la bocje (mouth), sielgi (to select), daûr che (accordingly as), podê (to be able), mangjâ (to eat), il mascjo (male), cence (without), nissun (not any), la pecje (blemish), un an (year), framieç di ({from} amongst), i rocs (sheep), lis cjavris (goats).

Verses 1-2: Il Signôr i disè a Mosè e a Aron in Egjit (the Lord said unto Moses and Aaron in Egypt): chest mês al sarà par vualtris (this month shall be for you) il prin di ducj i mês dal an (the first of all the months of the year).

Verse 3: Feveliur a dute la int di Israel (speak unto all the people of Israel) e dîsiur cussì (and say unto them so): *ai dîs di chest mês* (on the tenth of this month), ognidun che +si proviodi+ (let each provide himself) un cjâf di besteam minût par famee (a head of little cattle by family), un cjâf di besteam minût par cjase (a head of little cattle by house). — *Friulian here employs the cardinal numeral dîs (ten) where English employs the ordinal numeral tenth. Taken very literally, ai dîs di chest mês translates as at the ten of this month. Similar instances of this are found in verses 6 and 18. +Si proviodi is the third-person singular of the coniuntîf presint of the reflexive proviodisi. Consider: ognidun si proviôt (each provideth himself); che ognidun si proviodi (let each provide himself). The root of the verb proviodi (to provide) is viodi (to see), unto which pro has been prefixed. The complete conjugation of viodi in the presint indicatîf is presented below.

Verse 4: Se la famee e je masse piçule (if the family be too little) par un nemâl dal trop (for an animal of the flock), si metarà cun chel (it shall put itself with that one) che al è a stâ plui dongje (which dwelleth nearest), seont il numar des bocjis (according unto the number of mouths). O sielzarês un nemâl dal trop (ye shall select an animal from the flock) daûr che ognidun *al pò mangjânt* (accordingly as each is able to eat thereof). — *Observe: mangjâ (to eat); mangjânt (to eat thereof). Al pò (variant of al pues) is the masculine, third-person singular of the presint indicatîf of the verb podê.

Verse 5: Il nemâl dal trop al sarà un mascjo (the animal of the flock shall be a male), cence nissune pecje (without any blemish), di un an (of one year {of age}). Lu sielzarês (ye shall select it) framieç dai rocs o des cjavris (from amongst the sheep or the goats).

Lâ a mont is employed nominally in the text of this verse (il lâ a mont), which I have rendered as the setting, but it translates very literally as the going unto {the} mount.

Verse 7: O cjolarês une zumiele dal so sanc (ye shall take a cupped-handsful of its blood) e lu metarês su lis dôs antis e sul frontâl (and shall put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel) des cjasis là che lu mangjarês (of the houses where ye will eat it).

Verse 9: No vês di mangjâle ni crude (ye are to eat it neither raw) ni bulide ta l’aghe (nor boiled in water), ma rustide tes boris (but roasted over the embers), cul cjâf, cu lis talpis e cu la bultrime (with its head, its legs and its entrails).

Verse 10: Nol à di vanzânt nuie (not a thing thereof is to be remanent) pal indoman (for next day). Se ant reste pal indoman (if thereof remain for next day), le brusarês tal fûc (ye shall burn it in fire).

Verse 13: Il sanc al sarà par vualtris (the blood will be for you) un segnâl su lis cjasis (a sign on the houses) là che o sês a stâ (where ye dwell). Viodint chest segnâl (in seeing this sign), jo o passarai dret (I shall pass over) e vualtris no us sfiliarà il flagjel de distruzion (and you, the scourge of destruction will not brush up against you) cuant che o vuaiarai l’Egjit (when I shall strike down Egypt).

Verse 20: Vualtris no vês di cerçâ pan jevât (ye are not to have a taste of arisen bread), ma pardut là che o sarês a stâ (but wheresoever ye will dwell), o mangjarês dome pan cence levan (ye shall eat but bread without leaven).

Consider: cheste usance e vûl dî… (this custom meaneth…); ce vuelie dî cheste usance? (what meaneth this custom?). The masculine interrogative equivalent is vuelial, from al vûl. Consider: chest sacrifici al vûl dî… (this sacrifice meaneth…); ce vuelial dî chest sacrifici? (what meaneth this sacrifice?).
