9 'Geka pitenana ona laupali ona pa,

Amiyai, tam hoi yada e memae.
Gowam to wiyateyateya.
Om ani taniwaga una wogeleteya.
10 Om nugotuhu to dewaya hoi hipuli
mei yada tu miyena he dewedeweya pite.
11 I yam iyeta geka binei una weliyai.
12 I apapoe una paligigilihi po mei iyawoi tu wiapapoeniyai to paligigilihi.
13 Ma ega una palihaliyai po ludadana baneihi tona ialonihi.
Ma apapoe uyahinei tam una haloiyai,
[babana tam om ani taniwaga po om manini po om wasawasa amalai po houga tuwetuwenai.
Moina.]
