1-9. Jakalbaku bama wubulku kuku nyubunku balkawan. Juma jana bulmbuyman, yalaman, “Ngana wawu kari ngami-ngamimanka. Ngana muruku bunday, ngana junkurrjimal. Ngana town yalbay balkanka, bayan wubul bajaku ngaranka. Ngana bayan nyubun dindarranga ngaral, jarra-jarra bajaku yala manjal.” Yinyamun jana bayan ngaral-ngaranda, God wangkar-wangkarmun kadan, bayan nyajinka. Godungku nyuluku yalaman, “Ngayu binal jananka bamanka. Jana nganya kari kuku-nyajil, jana wawu janankaku junjuy-junjuy yalbay balkanka. Ngayu wawu kari jana bulmbuymanka.” Yinyaynka Godungku kuku walu-yindu walu-yindu bamanda dajin. Yinyamun jana walu-ngangkan-ngangkarin kukuku, jana binal kari. Yinyaynka jana bayan yalbay kari kunbay-manin, kari ngaran baja. Godungku bama ngami-ngami-bungan, yiringkurrku yungan bubungu yindu-yinduymbu. Jananga kuku wubulmarin. Yinyaynka jana yinya town burri dajin, Babylon.
