Toenanoe bana hăla ka pa'iwa, na dangoe na na ndaungoe na I Noak, tiloe ngahoe lima kamboeloe da. Toenanoe bana meti ka, hiwa ngahoe lima kamboeloe ndaungoe na.

Tăka hili ndaningoe pa na haätoe mahama dangoe na na nadungoe na I Noak. Toenanoe baba meti ka I Noak ndena ătăloe padangoe ă pa na tau, hama na ămang, ba ndena dangoe mboe na ndaungoe na; ningoe 400 ă, ningoe 300 ă, tăka ndedi nggi mandai na 200 mboea ndaungoe na.

Na manggawang noena, hangia ă nang na hiloe na mboeloe ndăba na na tau, hau tana hau tana. Na ngéa pangéangoe da bada kăhang, la tana Sinear, la karaha lokoe Prat. Toenanoe hida pakakandja da eti da: tawoeloe ja na paraingoe bokoel; la padoea tawoeloe oema djangga, na kapoekana kana toăma la awang; djéa ja noena kana namoe nda ana handădik, handalar; ka ămboe tanjalang la hau tana hau tana.

Tăka I Ala, na tanda toengoe noe ndena bihoe ja, bana peȧka ndja ămang: măta kai woroe kai bămbăroe, ămbi mboeta doe, kana kada ndăbang na tana.

Tăka poeroe na nja ka I Ala, hina pakoroe nja na biloe da, loepa ndena pinja na papeȧka na dăngoe angoe da patau lai noe.

Ba toenakanoe, ba ndeda papingoe pa hiloe, hida pa'ihang la hau tana hau tana, ndeda hăla ja pa na paraingoe da, bada woeloe ja.
