(Matthew 6: 9-13)

9. God ara nu heaven morono.
Nunge imbi penga.
10. Nunge kombum opili jeh.
Nunge pileli ulu heaven lemoma kape maina waiye lepili
11. Kine kere langi namilim tiwiyo
12. Linoga kalaroma kape,
lino teko kendirimele imbomaga kalaroma kape,
palima lilgo lendewiyo
13. Lino manda manjil ulu engenil marega nah meko ola puwiyo.
Kurowalo muni lino tepa kenjibelo muga pah nuni nokowiyo.
Nunge imbipengamu Jesus. (Amen.)

9 Eno Gote kinye ungu ningeindo i teko nengei,

Mulu Kombu Ara Gote,
imboma nunge imbi wengenderimu nengei.
10 Mulu kombu nokorono mele mai kombu aku teko nokowi.
Mulu kombu ungu tenge peremo,
mai kombu aku teko tenge pepili.
11 Kinye lino kere tiko molowi.
12 Imbomani lino teko kenjinge uluma
tiye kolomolo mele,
Linonga ulu kerima liko ltendewi.
13 Lino manda manjili uluma ombalo wali tiye naa kolowi.
Iye kerimunga kina wendo liwi.
Nu linonga iye nomi penga pa telina morono.
Molorunu mele molko kau puruno.
I paa.
ningo aku teko Gote kinye nengei.
