Fans Have Translated Game of Thrones’ Melisandre’s Prayer

Written by


During this week’s most recent episode of Game of Thrones, a certain prayer has changed the course of the show completely. Now a group of Reddit fans have managed to translate the Valyrian prayer to English.

Spoilers ahead!

In the episode, Melisandre uses a Valyrian resurrection prayer to bring Jon Snow back to life.

Zyhys oñoso jehikagon Aeksiot epi, se gis hen syndrorro jemagon.
We ask the Lord to shine his light, and lead a soul out of darkness.

Zyhys perzys stepagon Aeksio Oño jorepi, se morghultas lys qelitsos sikagon.
We beg the Lord to share his fire, and light a candle that has gone out.

Hen syndrorro, oños. Hen ñuqir, perzys. Hen morghot, glaeson.
From darkness, light. From ashes, fire. From death, life.

David J. Peterson, the creator of the High Valyrian language used on Game of Thrones, has posted the full official translation to his Tumblr blog.

Now that you know, we don’t suggest you try this on your dead animals.

New episodes of Game of Thrones Season 6 air every Sunday at 9PM, only on HBO.

Summers span decades. Winters can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun.It will stretch from the south, where heat breeds plots, lust and intrigues; to the vast and savage eastern lands; all the way to the frozen north, where an 800-foot wall of ice protects the kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men…all will play the ‘Game of Thrones.’

George R.R. Martin’s best-selling book series “A Song of Ice and Fire” is brought to the screen as HBO sinks its considerable storytelling teeth into the medieval fantasy epic. It’s the depiction of two powerful families — kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars and honest men — playing a deadly game for control of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, and to sit atop the Iron Throne. Martin is credited as a co-executive producer and one of the writers for the series, which was filmed in Northern Ireland and Malta.
