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

客家話 (Hakka)

  1. 該當時通天下都一樣口音頭恰倒人由東片徒居、
  2. 在示拿地遇倒一處坪地、就在該里住、
  3. 汝對佢、佢對汝話、好來、等吾等愛打磚當石、用地油當灰泥、
  4. 又話、等吾等好起座城、俾吾等住、做座塔來、其頂愛頂上天、愛傳下名聲、免致散開通地面去、
  5. 主就下來、看下世間人起嘅城同塔、
  6. 主就話、佢等合為一族、盡都共一樣口音、今又起做咁嘅、今下凡佢等想出來做嘅、都禁佢等唔住來、
  7. 等吾等下去、在該里來紊亂佢等嘅口音、等佢等通話唔倒、
  8. 主就在該里趕佢等、散去通地面、佢等就停開起城嘅工夫、
  9. 因爲主在該里亂開普天下嘅口音、又在該里趕散人、散下通地面去開、因此就安該城巴別、
