The Tower of Babel (Genesis 11: 1-9)

Caribbean Javanese

Bujare Manungsa

Mbijèn-mbijèné manungsa kabèh pada tunggal tembung, tegesé mbijèn namung ènèng basa sidji. Kadung wong-wong pada manggon ning negara Sinéar, ning kono terus pada kepéngin nggawé kuta sing gedé, supaja kabèh bisa manggon dadi sidji lan ora usah pada pentjar. Kuta sing arep digawé iki kudu ènèng omahé sing duwur mbanget, sampèk putjuké mèh sundul langit. Mulané wong-wong ija terus pada molai nggawé watu lan pada sambatan ngerdjani omah Gusti Allah weruh wong-wong pada mempeng njambut gawé. Dèkné terus rasan-rasan: “Wah, lah saiki waé wis pada nduwé akal kaja ngono? Lah mbésuk gèk keprijé? Apa karepé bakal keturutan.“ Gusti Allah terus ngomong: „“Hajuk wong-wong dibingungké, bèn ora bisa dunung marang sak pada-pada !“ Kekarepané Gusti ija terus klakon tenan. Wong-wong malih ora bisa dunung lan ngerti apa sing diomong karo lijané. Dadiné sing pada nggawé omah duwur ija ora bisa dadi. Kabèh terus pada bujar lan pentjar rata ing sak lumahé bumi. Mulané kutané terus didjenengké Babel, mergané ning kono wong-wong molai ora dunung omongané lijané.
