Re: Job 1.1-10 translation

toki! - How would you say 'to bless (someone)'? I have used 'toki e nimi sewi tawa' in 5., but it feels a bit unclear/awkward. I also tried just using 'pona' transitively in 10.

Re: nasin toki pi toki pona

toki! I updated my Toki Pona grammar — nasin toki pi toki pona . I did some clean-up and switched to English only and I put more focus on the dictionary.
