comment What does Mot Yumat mean?
I don't see it. I think we might be talking about two different things. But I guess if I really want the issue addressed I'll put it in a separate question.

comment What does Mot Yumat mean?
To your first point, "die" vs. "deaded" doesn't bother me since death events' activeness inherently don't align grammatically and realistically. Given that the infinitive absolute "mos" frames the cognate accusative "yumas" in a way we simply don't do in English I can see altering it somehow strictly in the interest of precision to distinguish from "yumas" alone. "Death he shall die" perhaps, or even "dead he shall be deaded", but the addition of "surely" seems like an overstatement.

Do you have a source for "he shall surely die" being a translation?
