English to Thai translations [Non-PRO]
English term or phrase:Worship in spirit and in truth
Explanation: ÊÑ¡¡ÒÃÐ (pronounced sak-kar-ra)means to worship or to respect, while ÈÃÑ·¸Ò literally means the faith or to be faithful.
¾ÃÐÇÔÒ³(pronounced pra-win-yarn) means the Holy Spirit.
ÊÑ¨¨Ð (pronounced sat-ja) means the truth translated into Thai in a literary style.
Explanation: The preceding answers take the word "spirit" to mean the Holy Spirit. John 4:23, your apparent source, refers instead to the attitude of the worshipper. There may be a literary or sacerdotal phrase that's better than ã¨¨ÃÔ§ to convey sincerity and conviction. I feel that ÊÑ¡¡ÒÃÐ and ºÙªÒ imply worship through offerings, while the phrase ¨§ÈÃÑ·¸Ò conveys worship as focusing or concentrating one's faith. Amber, if you need this (or one of the other answers) in English transliteration (along with my usual pronunciation rant,) just ask.
