Mo patro in kelu | Lord's Prayer | Vater unser

mo patro in kelu
sankten tu nomu
tu regnu vene
tu volu faze
in kelu i sur teru
done-mi mu panu tagus 
i pardone mi debi
as mi pardone mi deberi
i ne duze-mi in tentu
mas libere-mi du malu

Wikipedia. In the course of Christianization, one of the first texts to be translated between many languages has historically been the Lord's Prayer, long before the full Bible would be translated into the respective languages. Since the 16th century, collections of translations of the prayer have often been used for a quick comparison of languages. 

Eulingu follows simple rules which we like to share with you looking closer at the 'Lord's Prayer':

mo patro in kelu - our father (who art) in heaven

Both 'mo' (my/our) and 'patro' (father) carry the same ending '-o' for consistency and for indicating a masculine term. In contrast 'in kelu' (in heaven) is using the neuter ending 'u'.

sankten tu nomu - hallowed be thy name

The verb 'sankten' (hallowed) is comprised of 'sankt + e + n'. While the suffix 'e' is generally expressing 'action' (mu faze - I make), in this case the final 'n' renders the active verb passive.

tu regnu vene - thy kingdom come
tu volu faze - thy will be done
in kelu i sur teru - on earth as it is in heaven

The terms 'regnu' (reign/kingdom), 'volu' (will), 'kelu' (heaven) and 'teru' (earth) all end with the neuter 'u'. Therefore the preciding word expressing possession has to finish with the identical vowel (tu regnu - your kingdom, tu volu - your will, mu lingu - my/our language).

done-mi mu panu tagus - give us (this day) our daily bread
i pardone mi debi - and forgive (us) our trespasses
as mi pardone mi deberi - as we forgive thoses who trespasses against us 
i ne duze-mi in tentu - and lead us not into temptation
mas libere-mi du malu - but deliver us from evil

The actual meaning of 'mi' (we/my/our) depends on its surroundings as the 'm' indicates person (mu - I/mi - we) while the 'i' expresses the plural (in contrast to the singular and neuter 'u').

In 'done-mi' (give us) we make further use of 'mi'. By adding '-mu/-mi' (myself/ourselves), '-tu/-ti' (yourself/yourselves), '-sa/-so/-su/-si' (himself/herself/itself/themselves) to a verb, we reflect the action towards us (most of the time due to the lack of an actual object):

Mu lave-mu - I wash myself (but: mu lave mu korpu - I wash my body)
Tu ame-tu - you love yourself
Sa/so/su braze-sa/so/su - she/he/it embraces herself/himself/itself
Mi beve-mi a mortu - we drink ourselves to death (but: mi ame mi viti - we love our lives)
Ti libere-ti - you liberate yourselves
Si pardone-si - they forgive themselves

Otri eksempli:
Mu skribe mu libru primus - I write my/our first book
Mi manje mu panu tagus - We eat our/my daily bread
Mu kantete mi kanti primis in Paris - I sang my/our first songs in Paris
Mi parlele kon mi amikai in London - We will speak with our/my 'female' friends in London

done-mi mu panu tagus - give us (this day) our daily bread

The only adjective is formed with 'us' in 'panu tagus' (daily bread) with 's' indicating quality (adjective/adverb). The adjective normally follows the term.

as mi pardone mi deberi - as we forgive thoses who trespasses against us 

A 'doer' can be built by adding 'r' or 'ri' (plural) to a verb - in this case 'debe' (to owe/to be in debt) - so we end up with 'deber' (debitor) and/or 'deberi' (debitors).

i ne duze-mi in tentu - and lead us not into temptation

Negation is found in 'ne duze-mi' (lead us not/do not lead us) with 'ne' turning 'duze-mi' (lead us) into 'ne duze-mi' (lit. not lead us/ourselves).

Lu EU/UE in brevu | The EU in brief | L’UE en bref

The European Union is a unique economic and political union between 28 European countries that together cover much of the continent.

The EU was created in the aftermath of the Second World War. The first steps were to foster economic cooperation: the idea being that countries that trade with one another become economically interdependent and so more likely to avoid conflict.

The result was the European Economic Community (EEC), created in 1958, and initially increasing economic cooperation between six countries: Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. Since then, a huge single market has been created and continues to develop towards its full potential.

From economic to political union
What began as a purely economic union has evolved into an organization spanning policy areas, from climate, environment and health to external relations and security, justice and migration. A name change from the European Economic Community (EEC) to the European Union (EU) in 1993 reflected this.

The EU is based on the rule of law: everything it does is founded on treaties, voluntarily and democratically agreed by its member countries.

The EU is also governed by the principle of representative democracy, with citizens directly represented at Union level in the European Parliament and Member States represented in the European Council and the Council of the EU.

Mobility, growth, stability and a single currency
The EU has delivered more than half a century of peace, stability and prosperity, helped raise living standards and launched a single European currency: the euro. In 2012, the EU was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for advancing the causes of peace, reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe.

Thanks to the abolition of border controls between EU countries, people can travel freely throughout most of the continent. And it has become much easier to live, work and travel abroad in Europe.

The single or 'internal' market is the EU's main economic engine, enabling most goods, services, money and people to move freely.
