Love Binds Them All Together

Love Binds Them All Together in Japanese is 愛は全てを完全に結ぶ帯である which is read ai wa subete wo kanzen ni musubu obi de aru.

Love Binds Them All Together is the perfect wedding gift or anniversary gift.

The Japanese sentence ai wa subete wo kanzen ni musubu obi de aru is from Colossians 3:14 and means "Love Binds Them All Together". At Takase Studios we have three Japanese Bibles which we use for the translations. The subject is (read ai) which is indicated by the grammatical element は (read "wa" in this case). The object is 全て (read subete) meaning "all" which is indicated by the grammatical element を read "wo". 完全 (read kanzen) means perfectly with the grammatical element に (read "ni") which follows. The verb is the complex 結ぶ帯である which combines 結ぶ (read musubu) meaning "to bind" (read obi) meaning "belt" and the final である (read dearu) acts like the verb "to be".
