    How would you translate "бью челом", "не вели казнить"?
    Literary translation?

    That is what Lingvo says about the first phrase

    чело - forehead, brow •• бить челом кому-л. — или to ask smb. humbly; to go cap in hand to smb


    не вели казнить - not oreder to panish capitally
    Единственное, что люди любят давать бесплатно - это советы.
