deep darkness

The Hebrew that is translated as “deep darkness” in English is emphasized in Sar with the ideophone (a word that expresses what is perceived by the five senses) nding (“You threw us out to bring us down into nding darkness”), Nding “means dense, thick, insensitive, immobile, impenetrable. Examples: very thick porridge, a place plunged into deep darkness, thick clouds, stagnant water, dense dust, standing still without speaking, having heavy eyes, feeling heavy, having a heavy head, a place that’s crowded with people, a door tightly closed.” (Source: Ngarbolnan Riminan in Le Sycomore 2000, p. 20ff.).
