Tjandi am Babēl

An somoi-ai i sonop wangko' ja sē tow makatajango ka'i a si Tjasoeroean. Sēra loemopao in tita i Tjasoeroean wo toemawoi sē itjasalē' in atēēra lēwo'. Aitjoea i Tjasoeroean ja in sē soeroe i Noh toemiroewoka in tja'iomba'an; ta'an sēra ja ra'itja masalē'. Sē kete-keteren toemo'tolo merēnta sē lembitje'; si tjatarē nima-ise-isek sē kakēlē ja si Nimrod. En toe'oer im balē am pinaperēntana ja Babēl, kaoesoeian an tana' Sinēar.

Awoja an iitoe sē tow toemo'tolo mēma' esa walē a si lopa'na an tembir in dojongan i Efrat; wo sēra mengkoeanan in tana'i: „Karengana kita mēma' esa tjandi isoear i langit, wo sama' kita mindo-mio' ngaram bangko' wo kita ra'itja itjaserar am bawo in tana'.” Ang karapi im bendoe nimangakar sēra e nimeto'or si tjandi itoe, am pa'pa' sēra karengan matoenoe watoe, ēn ambitoe ja ra'itja wana. Janta'an em basa i Tjasoeroean en dangka' ēm basa ē tow; sēra ra'itja iwajana e mengēnē-ngēnēt in tjawēra'-anēra. Anaitoe kemoen i Tjasoeroean e noewoe' iaka-akar sē tow matawoi ra'io mengkailekan i noewoe'; anaē sēra mena' e mato'or in tjandi wo sēra matalitjoer iaka-akar sē tow itjaserar am bawo in tana' tanoeo in tarēpē'. Sē soeroe i Sēm nimento' an Asia, sē soeroe i Ham nimako-mēko an tana' Afrika; ja sē soeroe i Jafēt nimento' an Eropa.
