Lets analyze this:
 1) In hebrew, "Dayan Hoemes" -emes is referring to the "Dayan" not the Din. Therefore, the simple meaning is, blessed is the true judge, meaning only He is the true judge of the world. Ie he is the "real" judge, all others are merely fulfilling his judgement, like puppets in the hands of the marionette.

2) "He Judges the truth", you would need to add wording to explain this.-You cant judge the "truth". You can have true justice. Judging "Truthfully" is meaningless.

I think il go with 1.
I hear will ask my LOR

Abomination
The Hebrew word used in the Torah/Old Testament to describe gay relationships. But then again you may(should?) know this already!

Oilum/Oilem = Crowd

I don't think the Oilum here is capable of separating the two.

By the way, I recently saw this book and I would highly recommend it to any of our Yiddish/Hebrew (a.k.a. Yeshivish) challenged friends.

BTW. For all the funniness of the book itself, it has an excellent introduction.

...and dishonesty in business. And remarrying your spouse after marrying someone else.
