Be aware that ngup is "authority" only when used as slang... and being

The real word for authority is woQ.

pevuvchoHtaH, I read this as your telling them to continuously change
into a
state of respecting.  Altho technically it could read as changing to
continuously respecting, and the suffix types forces the -choH to come
first.  But I agree with what taD wrote, leaving off both suffixes.

The prefix pe-, the imparitive for "you" (plural), but with no object.
sentence has an object, so it gets the prefix yI-.

woQwIj yIvuv.

I don't know how this is used; but it doesn't have to be a command.  Is
making a statement which is apparently proclaiming future actions?

woQwIj bovuv - "You will respect my authority."
woQwIj bovuvbej - "You will certainly respect my authority."
(in a threatening/wishful manner)
