English to Japanese translations [Non-PRO] Art/Literary
Explanation: The above Japanese phrase is slightly abbreviated. The full phrase would read: Watashi wo sabakeru no wa, kami
nomi de shika nai. By leaving off the "de shika nai", the phrase becomes more
powerful, as if spoken in a heated argument in which the speaker is shouting something to the effect of: "You have no right to judge me! Only God has can judge me!" H. SLOVIC
