Ka jingtei ia Ka Babel

  1. Bad ka pyrthei baroh ka la long kawei ka tien, bad kawei ka jingkren.
  2. Ka la jia ruh, haba ki nang ialeit kynriah noh na mihngi, ba ki la shem ia ka dew madan heh ha ka ri Shinar; bad hangta ki la iashong duh.
  3. Bad ki la ia ong paralok hi, Ia, ngin iathaw ia ki maw it, bad ngin iathang bha ia ki. Te ki maw it ki la don ha ka jaka ki maw, bad ka bsiang ka la don ha ka jaka ka sorki.
  4. Ki la ia ong ruh, Ia, ngin iatei ia ka nongbah kawei ia lade bad ia ka kut ruh kawei, kaba ka kliar jong ka kan kot haduh ka bneng; bad to ngin iathaw nam ia lade, bah ioh yn pynsakma kylleng ia ngi ha khmat ka pyrthei baroh.
  5. Bad U Trai u la wan hiar ia kaban khmih ia kata ka nongbah bad ia kata ka kut, ia kaba ki la lah iatei ki khun bynriew.
  6. U Trai u la ong ruh, Ha khmih, ki briew ki long uwei u paidlang, bad ki don baroh tang kawei ka ktien; bad ia kane ki iasdang ban leh: te mynta kaei kaei ruh em kann ym khang ia ki ban leh: te mynta kaei kaei ruh em kan ym khang ia ki ban leh, ia kaba ki la lah iathmu keiñ.
  7. Ia, ngin ialeit hiar, bad ngin iapynbakla ia ka ktien jong ki hangta, ba kin ym iasngewthuh shuh ia ka ktien paralok hi.
  8. Kumta U Trai u la pynsakma ia ki kylleng nangta ha khmat ka pyrthei baroh; te ki la iapep noh na kaban iatei ia kata ka nongbah.
  9. Namarkata la khot Babel ia ka; naba U Trai u la pynbakla nangta ruh U Trai u la pynsakma ia ki kylleng ha khmat ka pyrthei baroh.
