On Hunting

(Bahá'u'lláh, Kitáb-i-Aqdas, para.60)

   Aavarahuaruvit aturlugin huraan timiat angunahuarutauyun, turhulajavat Atia Godim maliktinnahuarupkin aavaqtarnik; huraaqqatta ilingnut naamangniaqtuq, nalvaaraluaqtillugu tuquhimayuq. Ilumun, Ilihimayuqyuanguyuq, Qangirhimayuqyuanguyuq. Tuharitti, kihimi, aavaqpallaangiluhi. Pihugluhi pittiarnirmi aajjikkiingnirmilu tamainnut. Uqautiyaatin Qaummaqviata Naunaiqtirnium, ilitturiyaarni.
   If ye should hunt with beasts or birds of prey, invoke ye the Name of God when ye send them to pursue their quarry; for then whatever they catch shall be lawful unto you, even should ye find it to have died. He, verily, is the Omniscient, the All-Informed. Take heed, however, that ye hunt not to excess. Tread ye the path of justice and equity in all things. Thus biddeth you He Who is the Dawning-place of Revelation, would that ye might comprehend.
