Gapapaiwa

Babilon damsi numa ivowai da ighe kirakai

  1. Karenai dobu kudubina kamonai wawaya peyarisi i gamo ma i sisiya na sago.
  2. Ma wawaya viya ibaba inae ku warere sago maramatanai ma nani dobunai ivivi makiiyana. Dobuna kana vava Babilon.
  3. Ma dughu kamonai ivona bo, “Tanae, dobodobo tavopasipasi ma takapuna da ina pakora, ini wakima.” Nani dobunai wakima vaghata kegha, tuna kubiine dobodobo pakorisi itura numa vowana kubiine. Ma bade pasi dumadumana* gwabisiyai da dobodobo wakimisi ita pasitatana.
  4. Ma nani murinai ivona bo, “Tanae, kwanatu ghamana tayamoni ma kamonai na numa sago gurina tavowai ina ghae ku kunuma. Nakanani taberai da kata vava ina rakata ma ke meyani tibogebogeta ku dobu bogii ma bogiiyai.”
  5. Ma kegha, Bada ioru da ita rugenarisi, kwanatuna ma numa gurina iyamoyamoni na ita kitai.
  6. Ma ivona bo, “Weni damsi gamo sago kava isisiya da ivi sagosi. Ma weni berana ivi karei da eberaberai na karakava kesago aviyavisina ina tarapotesi.
  7. Toru da weni wawayisi i gamo tavirai da ke kovokovoghina ini akovavivirana.”
  8. Vaghina ma Bada ikiivisawarisi da Babilon ikiibutawei inae da dobu ine yavui. Ma kwanatuna iyamoyamoni na ivoterei.
  9. Nani kwanatunai ivi notaragharaghisi da gamo bogii ma bogiiyai ivivi sisiya, tuna kubiine kana vava vuna na ‘Babel†.’ Ma wawayisi ikiivisawarisi da ivi bogebogesi inae da dobu bogii ma bogiiyai imakii yavui.

11:9: ‘Babel’ Hibru damsi gamosiyai ‘babel’ iyamna ‘notaragharagha.’
