i love jesus
Ek is lief vir Jesus


Explanation:
Normal = Ek is lief vir Jesus
Archaic = Ek bemin Jesus
The English verb "love" or "to love" in Afrikaans has no direct, transitive verb form (except for the archaic). The non-existant transitive form is sometimes encountered in badly translated advertisements, eg "Ek lief Melrose" (I love Melrose).

Example sentence(s):
  • Ek is lief vir Jesus
  • Ek bemin Jesus (archaic)
