  2. E diyakindi, o bâ-ba tamwakidi o mbuhwa, ka bâ-ba duwa unhanjiboka o ehe ya Shainar; ka bâ-ba diya omĕ.
  3. Ka bâ-ba kala upâkwĕ n‘ upâkwĕ, na, Okani, ho hanemi brik, na hwĕ-hwa tumba beâ bwamu. Brik be diyakindi mabâdâ o bâ-ba jadi.
  4. Ka bâ-ba vâ, na, Okani, ho long-kiyeni hwĕ mĕtĕ mboka enĕnĕ, na elongo ya hâkâ ’aju e didi e kâbâkidĕ oba, na hwĕ-bwa ha hwĕ dina, o banga hwa vanjangana o ibati ja he yĕhĕpi.
  5. Ka Jĕhova a huba ka yĕnĕ mboka tĕ enĕnĕ, na elongo yĕ ya bana ba bato e longakidi.
  6. Ka Jĕhova a vâ, na Umbwaki-yate, bato ba te umbâkâ, na bâ bĕhĕpi ba te ’tomba yâkâ; na ekae ndi eabu e yalidĕ o ha; o ’bĕ na elombo e ka himbidĕ bâ nyang‘ ’abu e vahakĕ o ha.
