    My username is taken from the Hebrew in Isaiah 62:7. It means, "a praise in the Earth." Not me, Jerusalem. I have hope that the day will come and I will see it when Jerusalem is transformed from a "cup of trembling" into the best place on the planet to bring glory to God's reputation. Oh, and my initials are T. B.

    If you knew the movie you would know that CDM gives his entire share to Clint Eastwood at the end and then departs, happy that he has avenged his sister. He is originally a colonel and is best with a rifle. He is presumably sufficiently wealthy that he doesn't need the money.

    Always sounded like Scotty to me and made me wonder if 3:16 was from your own book or something.

After having killed the villain in a duel to that tune, CDM takes the medallion back from the villain. Representative of taking souls back from the devil, in my mind.

    If you speak spanish or have studied it, this is basic pronunciation. Not that there's anything wrong with the way you pronounce it. Even though it is wrong. That's okay. No problem. Just thought you might like to know.
    No it's not. Listen to the Spanish man in the video I linked. B and V are somewhat interchangeable in Spanish but not the G.

    All the four people at your link pronounce it with a G as well though the sound is a bit less clear than in the video I linked previously.

    The spanish E is somewhere between the E in eel and the E in ellen

    The o doesnt have an implicit w at the end, its blunt
