Gigero ot ma wiye ocudo malo i Babel

  1. Lobo ducu onoŋo tye ki leb acel, ki lok bene onoŋo lam.
  2. Ka dano gucako dak nia ki tuŋ wokceŋ, gunoŋo lobo mubedo bar i lobo Cinar, ci gubedo iye kunnu.
  3. Ka gucako lok kakengi ni, “Wubin, wek watimu matafali, wawaŋgi woko matek.” Ci gutiyo ki matafali ma ka got, ki odok macol lamwon kingi.
  4. Dok guwaco ni, “Wubin, wek wageru gaŋwa, ki ot ma wiye ocudo malo ogudo polo, wek wamiyu nyiŋwa oyweki, wek pe waket woko ata i wi lobo ducu.”
  5. Ka Rwot olor piny ka neno gaŋ ki ot ma wiye ocudo malo ma litino pa dano gugero,
  6. Rwot owacci, “Nen, guribbe rok acel, ki lebgi bene acel; man aye pud acakki gin ma gibitiyo, dok gin ma gibitamo pi tiyone pe doŋ biloyogi.
  7. Wubin waloru piny, warbu legbi woko, wek ŋat acel acel pe oniaŋ leb pa wadi.”
  8. Kit meno Rwot okeyogi woko nia ki kunnu, guromo lono ducu, ci guweko gero gaŋ meno.
  9. Mumiyo nyiŋe gucako ni Babel, pien kenyo aye Rwot orubo iye leb ducu ma i lobo, dok Rwot okeyogi woko nia ki kunnu, guromo lobo ducu.
