Q&A Asked about Nefarious

Apr. 26, 2023
What is the meaning of the Latin words at the end of Nefarious? What are the final words spoken after the credits played?
May. 7, 2023 The first line, "Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin," comes from the Bible, specifically the Book of Daniel. It carries the meaning of "Numbered, numbered, weighed, divided." The subsequent lines: "Autem stultus es" translates to "However, you are foolish" in English. "Autem" means "however" or "but," and "stultus" means "foolish," while "es" is the second person singular form of the verb "to be" in Latin. "Ut non comprehendias" means "So that you may not understand" in English. "Ut" translates to "so that" or "in order that," "non" means "not," and "comprehendias" is the second person singular present subjunctive form of the verb "to comprehend" or "to understand." "Continuendum est" translates to "It must be continued" in English. "Continuendum" is the neuter gerundive form of the verb "to continue," and "est" means "it is" or "it must be." A possible interpretation is: "Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin. However, you are foolish so that you may not understand. It must be continued."
