That's easy, the second.  That's because the first is grammatically
incorrect. {{:-)  It needs to be:  ghorgh 'oHpu' may''e'.

Aside from that, I think I'd still tend to favour the second.  This
is one case where I do tend to agree with those who try to limit the
use of "to be" in tlhIngan Hol.  But this is just a gut feeling,
nothing more.
