Sample text (John 3:16)

क्याकी भण्याँ परमेश्वरले संसारलाई यिसो प्रेम अर्यो, कि उनले आफनो एकै चेलो दियो, कि उनमि विश्वास अद्द्या कोई लगइ नाश जन हऊन् , तर तइले अनन्त जीवन पाउ |

Transliteration

kyākī bhaṇyā pareśwarle sasārlāī yiso prem aryo, ki unle āphno ekai celo diyo,ki unmi viswās addyā koī lagai nāś jan haūn,tar taile anant jīwan pāū.

Translation

For God so loved the world,that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
