I'll let the BG correct/explain what you have here. However, some food for 
thought on this phrase: at the qep'a' this past week, I heard someone 
translate this phrase as:
{woQwayj yIvuv}
The -wayj part is -wIj, except pronounced differently (to resemble the 
pronunciation of "authoritahh")
Obviously, there isn't only one exact way to translate the phrase; there 
are different nuances that I'm sure the BG will mention.
