Anyone know aramaic, or write it fluently?

The phrase "Trust in the LORD" - we can have a bit of variation depending on your preference. Firstly, let's talk about the fonts.

Aramaic has been traditionally written in several different fonts. Do you want to emulate what most likely was written during the time of Christ? Or how about the earliest script we know of? Or the latest modern script? Or one of the various "Hebrew" script? You have lots of choices.

Secondly, when you say "trust" - are you speaking to a 2nd person singular or plural? Or a 3rd person singular or plural? Or is this an imperative, being spoken to you by someone else in the singular .... or the plural?

Third - what word do you want to use for "Lord" - there is a version that is reserved in Aramaic for God alone and actually incorporates His Name. Then there is a more generic "Lord."
