And this is why translation is a LOT more than just word glossing.

And, more apropos to BGreek, why glossing words (which I suspect
is what you meant to say) does NOT give a full understanding of
the meaning of the Greek.  There's more going on in Greek (or
any language for that matter) than just the streaming of words.
