take his life into his ha

NHKからの抜粋です The man says Goto took his life into his own hands by seeking out Islamic State. 対応する日本語記事は、行の配置が一致しているとすれば、次です: 「彼は自分の命に責任を持ちながら、みずから向かった」としています。 "take life"は命を奪うことだと思います。するとこれは自殺した、とも読めるのですが、どうでしょうか。 注目されている部分です: Another Syrian man has said he invited Goto to his home in northern Syria several months ago. He says on a Facebook page that he asked Goto not to go to areas controlled by Islamic State. He says he warned him that even Muslims are not safe with the group, and that a non-Muslim would be killed or captured. The man says Goto took his life into his own hands by seeking out Islamic State. He says he prays for Goto's safe return. 「無事に戻るよう強く祈っている」 シリア北部に入った後藤健二さんを数か月前に自宅に招いたというシリア人の男性は、フェイスブックのページで、「イスラム教徒でも安全ではないのに、イスラム教徒ではない後藤さんが『イスラム国』のところに行ったら、殺されるか、捕らえられることになるので、『行かないでくれ』と頼んだ」とし-たうえで、「彼は自分の命に責任を持ちながら、みずから向かった」としています。 そして、「無事に戻るよう強く祈っています」と、後藤さんの解放への願いをつづっています。

1。 下記に take one's life in one's hands は、「生命を危険にさらす、命懸けである」と訳してあります。 http://eow.alc.co.jp/search?q=take+in+hands 2。The man says Goto took his life into his own hands by seeking out Islamic State.  の全訳は   「その男は、イスラム国を探し求めることによって、後藤は、自分の生命を危険に曝した、と言った」  になります。 3。区切りを、he took his life より、広くとって he man took his life into his own hands までを一区切りにすれば、原意がはっきりすると思います。

take his life / となるのでなく、 take O into his own hands でひとまとまりです。 take O to ~で「O を~へ連れていく、持っていく」という形もありますし、 take O into consideration/account で「O を考慮に入れる」 という表現もあります。 take matters into one's own hands で「自分の手でことを運ぶ」 のように用いられます。 ここでは life なので、「命を自らの手にゆだねる」のような表現になっています。 さらに by ~ing がつづき「~することによって」ですので、 イスラム国に向かうことによって、命を自らの手にゆだねる この by ~ing は「イスラム国に向かう、ということはすなわち、命を自らの手にゆだねる、 ということだよ、という響きを表わします。 by ~ing はよく使われる表現ですが、文字通り訳すと日本語では意味が感じにくい表現です。

A video posted late Saturday, Japan time, shows a still image of hostage Kenji Goto holding a photo of another Japanese hostage Haruna Yukawa. An audio recording that accompanies the video plays the voice of a man who claims to be Goto. He says the militants killed Yukawa. He says the group is offering to free him in exchange for the release of a woman called Sajida al-Rishawi. Media and other sources in the Middle East say Rishawi was given a death sentence for her involvement in the 2005 bombings in the Jordanian capital of Amman. More than 50 people died. Jordanian authorities alleged the coordinated bomb attacks were the doing of the then leader of Al-Qaeda in Iraq, Abu al-Zarqawi. Al-Qaeda in Iraq is the predecessor of Islamic State, which established itself in Syria as civil war was raging across the country. The Islamic State last month captured a Jordanian air force pilot taking part in air raids against the group. Middle Eastern media say Jordanian officials may be considering the option of freeing Rishawi in exchange for the pilot.

  • on his own terms

    My grandfather passed away three years ago. It was the first death in the family I’ve experienced. I was absolutely in bits when he died. He was very healthy all of my life until that point. He had an ongoing “flu” for a couple weeks that turned out to be cancer, and he passed within a month of letting all of the immediate family know about the diagnosis. He did not opt for treatment that would have lengthened his life, which I absolutely am grateful for. He passed on his own terms in his home. He passed on his own terms「自分が思うがままに死んだ」?でしょうか?どういうことでしょうか?よろしくお願いします

The group threatens to kill them unless Japan pays 200 million dollars within 72 hours of the video's release. The deadline ends soon.

  • すごーく長いので、出来たら訳をお願いしたいです

    He is an interesting man, but there has been obscurity and misery in his life. He has faced some long and hard past ordeal, or unfavorable circumstances or darkness of spirit has shadowed him and dogged his footsteps. He is stalwart and hardened by the struggle, and a little fatalistic and guided often on his course by his instincts as to what will bring him luck and what wont. He knows what direction he wants to follow in life and struggles against adversities in a dignified way. But he is an unsettled man with a changing unreliable life and a restless determination to rise about him. One who is never at rest or at peace but always on the move. He has a receptive mind, a wild energy and life of much turmoil and contradiction. An ambitious man, but with many impractical dreams, who fools himself into thinking he is capable of achieving more than he can, and so no matter how hard he tries, how successful he is. his goals remain always distant, out of reach or just beyond his capability. He is one of life's takers, not one of life's givers. He takes what's given for granted and exploits it in any way he can, to get further gains. To heap up favours or wealth, a grasping nature, that when given something, extracts more, but gives little or nothing back. He ceases opportunities where he can. Lives by his wits exploits his own reserves, but fails to learn from his bad luck and failures. すみません。やはり長すぎますね・・

  • 英語の文法ミス指摘してください

    I like this story because there are many points, which makes me thinking about what human-being happiness is many times. Even though, Robert has a physical disability, he enjoys his life more than me. He did not imply negative contents of his physical disability. On the contrary, he has great pride in himself. For example, when the wife offered him to move his staff to his room, he said, “it can go up when I go up”. He declined her gentle offer because he wanted to do whatever he could do it by himself because of his pride. Also, he alway tries enjoying his life. When the husband offers blind man to smoke together, he accepts that offer, and he said, “There is a first time for everything”. Although it was a first time to smoke, He didn't to hesitate to do it. He likes doing new challenge, which is worth doing. That is why he enjoys his life.
