YHVH Translation Masterpost

For all your YHVH needs. YHVH and friends dialogues and descriptions from Megami Tensei II, Shin Megami Tensei II and Shin Megami Tensei IV Final. I know the dialogues have been translated before, but I made my own versions for other reasons, so I might as well put them here (awkward archaic speech included).

More info on: Kagutsuchi, Doi commenting on his YHVH designs in SMT4F, The Great Will.

More under the cut!

Megami Tensei II

Voice: Beings who begrudge your God, turn away! Your souls are not soiled yet!

Voice: Beings born out of earth! Know that my destruction is the destruction of this world!

YHVH: My sons, ye have finally come! I know well how ye have been tempted by demons.

YHVH: Even so, it was inevitable.
YHVH: Sons, I shall give ye one last chance.

YHVH: Will ye not let go of those accursed beings and prosper as my servants? If not so, will ye be stricken by my lightning and fall into Hell?

YHVH: Curse thee! Curse thee! Ye shall burn in the eternal flames of Hell until the end of the world!

YHVH: How could this happen?! How could I be beaten into earth by my own creation?

YHVH: And yet, perhaps this is for the best. If this be your choice…

YHVH: I have one last word for ye. I am but one part of an incorporeal entity which controls countless universes. There are much stroger aggregations of consciousness than this universe.

YHVH: Hear? This is not the end. Pitifully, ye have chosen an even more painful path…

 

Shin Megami Tensei II

Sabaoth: The only ones who can board the Ark are humans with the necessary abilities to live in the new world. Then why are you here? Even though we called for the most gifted men who would revere and obey God in order to have a new world that will not be destroyed by malice and violence. Sinners who only revel in destruction and murder and continue fusing demons through heretical means cannot board the Ark!

Shaddai: So you’ve come…Demon child…born of the defiance of God’s established rules of life. Born from such a foolish experiement to create a Messiah! Twisting the life created by God is both conceited and inordinate. I, Shaddai, the supreme king of existence, will not allow this!

Elohim: Born against the will of God, summoning and using demons, going from fight to fight. Why, if it isn’t the demon child himself! Listening to the voice of demons, having demons flock around you, holding the blade of demons in your hand. You want to rise against me, demon child? Then be gone!

YHVH (Law)

Voice: Satan! Well done. Thou hast accompanied Aleph to me.

Voice: Aleph! Thou hast fought well.

Voice: Hiroko! Thou hast fought well.

Voice: All thy battles took place for the sake of my deeds.

YHVH: Praise my name! There is no one to rival my glory. Praise my name! Aleph, Hiroko, ye have done well in reaching me. Ye are surely the true saviours. And, Satan. Thou hast conducted my judgement well. The world illuminated by the Megiddo Arc shall before long be filled with my servants and prosper.

YHVH: Judge Satan! Thou sayest thou shalt judge me, thou created being! If that be so, ye shalt be stricken by my lightning and fall in Hell! Burn in the eternal flames of Hell! Ye demons! Ye humans who walk by the side of demons!

YHVH’s voice: Being judged by my own creation means that ye have already let go of my hand. Think ye that ye shall be able to find your way without the help of my unseen hand? Remember well. Humans can live with nothing to trust or rely on. But humans are not strong. Every time humans shall seek my help, the great will of the Universe shalt bring me forth countless times…

YHVH (Neutral)

Voice: Who was it? Who was the one who defeated Satan? Come forth and show thyself.

Voice: Defeated my messenger Satan…

Voice: Defeated my avatars, Sabaoth, Shaddai, Elohim…

Voice: Ye accursed beings, who have toyed with countless lives…

YHVH: Praise my name! There is no one to rival my glory. Praise my name! Ye have finally showed to me. Accursed child of man, Aleph! Thou art a wicked human, a created being that cannot go against my law. Hiroko! Thou hast offered thy body to create an accursed human. Not only have ye both violated my laws, ye have even come to stand before me. The many sins ye have committed are worth certain death. Still, after that irredeemable death, after the continuous persecutions in Hell, your reincarnations shall be stricken by calamities and divine retribution until the very last!

YHVH’s voice: Ye accursed humans! Ye have finally committed the ultimate sin. Now there is nothing left for ye who have destroyed me, the Creator, the father of all, nothing to trust, nothing to rely on. Ye have even killed the Demon King Lucifer. What shall ye do by yourselves? Remember well. Humans can live with nothing to trust or rely on. But humans are not strong. Every time humans shall seek my help, the great will of the Universe shalt bring me forth countless times…

YHVH (Chaos)

Voice: Who was it? Who was the one who defeated Satan? Come forth and show thyself.

Voice: Defeated my messenger Satan…

Voice: Defeated my avatars, Sabaoth, Shaddai, Elohim…

Voice: Ye accursed beings, who have toyed with countless lives…

YHVH: Praise my name! There is no one to rival my glory. Praise my name! Lucifer! Thou hast finally showed thyself to me together with Aleph and Hiroko. Going against my command and having Kuzuryuu conduct not the great destruction, but the destruction only of Millennium hath destroyed the last speck of the pride of the former archangels.

YHVH: Humans, demons…in the end, they are all my creations. Your blades cannot even scratch me. If that be so, ye shall be stricken by my lightning and fall in Hell! Burn in the eternal flames of Hell! Ye demons! Ye humans who walk by the side of demons!

YHVH’s voice: It is your victory. The Creator defeated by his own creations shall now vanish. I cannot bear to see the world that used to move under my law descend into chaos. Who shall be the leader of the new but chaotic world? Lucifer? Shall Aleph and Hiroko be worshipped as saviours? Remember well. Humans can live with nothing to trust or rely on. But humans are not strong. Every time humans shall seek my help, the great will of the Universe shalt bring me forth countless times…

 

Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse

YHVH First Form: The actual One God of monotheism. The One God praised by Judaism, Christianity and Islam. He is the omnipotent existence that created heaven and earth and made man in his own image, but this also means that together with the angels, his avatars, he also gave birth to demons. By giving humans bodies of flesh and bone, their lives and fears were repeated in the endless cycle of death and rebirth, restricting their range of observation.

YHVH Second Form: The first form was the head of the first man, Adam, created in his own image. However, the second form turns into a strange chimera that resembles a demon. The goat wanted by god in the Scriptures, the snake that tempted Eve in Eden or the swarm of locusts that appeared in the Exodus, threatening the Pharaoh if he refused to free the Jews, all can be seen in this form. Each part of the chimera is connected to the other.

***I used the term ‘avatars’ for Sabaoth, Shaddai, Elohim and the angels, but the original Japanese term is ‘bunrei‘ (分霊), quite literally ‘parts of the spirit’.
