The Eskimo Language for Forgiveness


Today’s word is not Hebrew or Greek, it’s Eskimo! The word is issumagijoujunnainermik. When missionaries first shared the gospel with the Eskimos, they couldn’t find any word in the Eskimo language for forgiveness. So, they took a number of Eskimo words and joined them to form a new word—Issu-magi-jou-jun-nai-ner-mik—and it became the Eskimo word for forgiveness. The individual words are “Not-being-able-to-think-about-it-anymore.”
