Hi all,

I need some help with translation of text on this wall hanging. I purchased it off a member of the Korean diplomatic staff who was in a hurry to leave - about two years back. The piece itself is about three feet by maybe two feet (?) in dimensions and quite heavy. By my reckoning it is between seven to ten kgs in weight. It is a wall hanging for sure (heavy iron rings on top). At the time of transaction I was told it translates to ''God Bless You'' but there was a genuine language barrier so conversation was halting.

I was going to get it fashioned into a low slung table but at this point of time, I just need to understand what does it say.

Google does not have a Korean to English translator and even if it did, these are pictograms.

Any help appreciated. I know this isn't fit for Arts in India but I cant find something better. If I don't hear anything in a few days, I'll delete this.

thank you!
Vaibhav

It's all Greek to me, but Benglish will do

Hmm…. Google Translate does have Korean to English !

But not sure how you can transcribe your text onto it.

Thank you. The firewall at work is blocking the link you've shared TD. Will look at it from home maybe.

That'd be a great great help GP. I'm not too confident of doing this thing correctly myself.

p.s. Feel free to PM me if the result is too embarrassing for public domain.

vaibhav do you have a smartphone with the google translate app? You can use it to take a photo of the piece and translate. I used it on the photo you posted and it wont recognise some of the characters, possibly because of the angle.

Partial translation from the app: Geupmal below you travel you in the Lord to him Papa rawa aspects tatoi.g_i (sic)

Might make more sense with all of it.

It is Proverb 16 1-3 from the Bible and states:-

Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.

I hope this helps.
