Well, until you post the correct answer along with where this quote comes from, everyone has the chance to claim the victory.

I don't know about some others, but I'd like a hint.

You could, for example, translate that dakryous there.

That's exactly the one I would like to keep hidden as long as possible. Would you mind picking something else?

Well, I can tell you it's a noun. A plural noun. And it is the object of the sentence (of "ymeis", that it). That much has to suffice.

I guess it must be this:

Dakryous myriona ymeis ekcheeite; kai _____ peribalousin _______ kata ymas, kai ekbalousin ymas exo, ina mete echo tou odyrmou ymon metabesetai dia ton oron.

"Tears unnumbered ye shall shed; and the Valar will fence Valinor against you, and shut you out, so that not even the echo of your lamentation shall pass over the mountains"

(Since I work in a medical profession I recognized "Dacryo" as refering to tears )

Thank you, Legate! Btw, this was interesting, I didn't know what "Koine Greek" was, and so I looked it up . It's amazing how many languages you know!!
Unfortunately I am not able to bring something so exotic, and am lazy to boot, so it'll be plain German today. (If too easy, I'll bring up Swissgerman again next time )

There were a few passages where I thought it might be, and that was the second I checked. Well, somehow I missed that particular quote there, and had then no idea where to look for.

It's that, and don't look at me. I admit taking it from the Swedish translation instead of translating myself. *insert angelic smilie*

After a long and hard work, and with a little help from a walking dictionary called Aganzir, I have it. I asked just for a few words, though, I think three or so (tule, muuta/muut and kuule). Otherwise, there were just confirmations whether my finds were correct (and mostly, they were not).

You can see the parts through which my thought process went, from:
Quote:
Gimli stabbed his axe into the tree. "This cart is not going anywhere," he said. "Come! Let us go! Others are fishing/eating sheep (not sure on this one) meanwhile."
Through more concrete:
Quote:
Gimli did something. "I don't hear other? else? something something." he said. "Come! Let us (go or something). Others something."

The first quote is, of course, right but the second one made me laugh hysterically. But anyway, it's your thread.

Oh my, now what was the original quote *tries to decipher - oh, how good I wrote the Greek script there...*¨

Aaah yeees, I know now!

hémeis/hémon - a form of "we" or "us" (the second being "our")
hodou - road or way
chóra - land

And again, I will suggest you try to look for words which, or whose parts would seem familiar to you. Right now I see at least two, one of which is quite obvious, another has a root inside it which can be thought of... possibly.

I haven't forgotten this, I keep looking at it from time to time .
I found or guessed several words (those you gave I had already found) but others remain mysterious and the whole thing doesn't ring a bell.
(It took some time til I found that it has nothing to do with Háma!)

Here's what I get until now:

Simultaniously (....) we carried of the road (....) setting of the sun and from afar found (....) land where heart... (....) both stop again (....)

Perhaps someone else can make sense of this...

It's actually very good and very close. I am sure someone could see the original quote in that.

Now you confirmed my guesses and I look at it again, it suddenly does ring a bell!!
Is it the end of the Ent & Entwife song?

Thank you, Legate!

Since Aganzir's German is too good I'll try Swiss-German dialect to make it more challenging.

White Tree A tad too challenging . . .

I see a lot of German, a bit of French, and a swarm of things that I need to check avec meinen Freundins großes Wörterbuch.

Came as far as this: I am sure that you have all heaviest ... I pity [snails?] and all who their houses on their back carry.

Frodo to Sam: "I am sure you have given me all the heaviest stuff. I pity snails, and all that carry their homes on their backs."

A funny dialect with some near-Dutch sounding words.

Well done, Cailin!
Swiss German dialect has some things in common with Dutch, like the guttural "ch" sound.

New quotation

''Blijf hier maar zitten ... en kijk uit over de landen waar kommer en kwel zal neerkomen op degenen die jij aan mij hebt uitgeleverd. Want jij hebt het gewaagd me te bespotten.''

Hopefully in the future I'll have time to translate a part into another language, but as I have no time at the moment, this is what you're getting.
