You try, that is what counts.

baj is a verb, "earn".
Hem is also a verb, "be proud".

We also have Qu' "duty, task, mission".  Sometimes we use it to refer to our
jobs.  yaH "duty station", sometimes we use this for our place of work.

Hem is "be proud", not "be proud of".  For this we will use the suffix -mo.
This can be found on page 28 of the dictionary.

For "his" we use the suffix -Daj.

Qu'Dajmo' Hem SuvwI'.  "The warrior was proud because of his duty."

What does it mean "He went on from hour to hour, day to day"?  Is this the
same as, "He worked every hour, every day"?
ghoS refers to physically traveling from one place to another.

Hoch jaj, Hoch rep, vum.  "He worked every hour, every day."

I'm not sure how to say "moody", but we do have "passionate".
Remember that naj is the verb "dream", not a noun.

tlhoy najbogh SuvwI' nong  "A passionate warrior that dreams too much."

SoH means "you".  Where you wrote /nong SoH/, it is "you are passionate."
