Did anyone translate "What lies in the shadow of the statue?"

I don't speak Latin or Egyptian or whatever language that is.  Did anyone figure out the answer?

According to Lostpedia Richard said "He who will protect/save us all" in Latin.  I'm curious what Jacob and Illana said to each other in the hospital.

Well, if he dies, can he really protect/save "us all?"

Yes he can, when Jack and the other Losties (Jacob's Esau-butt-kicking "dream team") zoom to the year 2007 after the hydrogen bomb explodes in 1977, and save Jacob!

My screen showed subtitles. Didn't yours?

Nurse:  How are you feeling?  Are you thirsty?  There's someone here to see you.  I explained your condition to him...   But he insisted on seeing you anyway.  You've had no visitors.  It will be good for you.
Jacob:  I'm sorry I couldn't make it sooner.
Ilana:  I'm very happy to see you.

It seems they know each other.

Mine had it too SOL.

He who will protect/save us all.  Ben?  Taken literally, he definitely lies.

Shadow of the Statue
« Reply #24 on: May 14, 2009, 06:45:53 PM »
When asked what lies in the shadow of the statue, Richard replied "Ille qui nos omnes servabit," Latin for "He who shall protect/save us all." At the end, the only thing I saw lying near the statue was Locke's body. DOes that mean Locke is the key to the riddle? Locke will save them all? Any thoughts?

Locke was my guess *nod*. They actually had his body laying on the ground...they didn't need to dump it out, they could have just opened the lid like they did for Lapidus (or however it's spelled lol). Did it for dramatic purposes of course, but maybe also to emphasize the "llies" part of the question lol.

So who will be the one to "save us all"? Jacob obviously can't anymore. The Locke impersonator doesn't seem like such a good guy... who will save them all? Who will be in charge now?

The answer deffinitely implies Jacob, I don't see how this is really up for debate. I mean, Jacob lives (lived) in the base of the statue, and if we want to play the little word game/riddle, technically, he would always be in the shadow of the statue, because he's under it. As for it being Locke, well, right now, he's dead, so it can't be him. Plus, when the others came up with this riddle, LOCKE WASN'T THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good point. Jacob is the answer to the riddle so he will have to be the one to save them. I am guessing his work in getting Jack and Co the island and having them in 1977 blasting their way to the future will be how Jacob saves everyone.

Possible, but the thing is, the answer to the riddle, is just that, the answer. The answer doesn't HAVE to be true, you know?? It's merely just an identifying phrase. The answer could have been "Purple Monkey Dishwasher". Now that Jacob is "dead" (being stabbed in the heart, and lit on fire is pretty definitive in my book, LOL) they aren't going to change the answer to the riddle.
