3 Same ting wit da older wahines. Teach dem fo ack da way da peopo dat stay spesho fo God suppose to ack. Tell um, “No talk stink behind da odda guyʼs back, an no love da booze too much so you gotta drink all da time an no can stop.” Tell um no make lidat, but tell um fo teach ony da good kine tings, 4 so den dey can teach da younga wahines fo tink how fo show love an aloha fo dea husban an dea kids, 5 an how fo take charge a how dey live, an how fo be clean inside an no mo bad kine stuff inside jalike God, an how fo take care dea house, an how fo be good kine peopo, an how fo show respeck fo dea husban an let him be da leada. So den, if dey do dis, nobody goin talk bad bout da tings dat God say.
6 Same ting wit da younga guys inside da church. Go give dem good kine words fo help um fo take charge a how dey live. 7 Wateva you do, do good kine stuff fo show dem how dey suppose to ack. Wen you teach, make shua wat you say an wat you do say da same ting.

Den, if get one guy dat no like wat you say, he goin come all shame, cuz he no can say us guys do bad kine stuffs.
9 Da slave guys inside da church, tell um dey gotta do everyting dea boss say an no talk back, fo make dea boss feel good inside, 10 an no cockaroach da bossʼs stuffs. Mo betta dey show da boss he can trus um fo do good job everytime. If da slave guys make lidat, den wen peopo tink bout wat us guys teach, all da kine stuff dat we teach goin look real good, like wen we talk bout how God get us outa da bad kine stuff we stay in.
11 How come us guys gotta make lidat?

He teach us fo take charge a how we live, fo do da right tings, an fo do da kine stuff dat he like, hea inside da world nowdays. 13 Same time us guys stay good inside cuz we wait an trus dat our Boss Jesus Christ goin come back. Goin be awesome. Jesus, he wen take us outa da bad kine stuff we stay do. He God, you know, an he get power ova everyting! 14 He wen give himself fo mahke fo us, so he can cut us guys loose from all kine pilau stuff an from broke Godʼs rules, an make us clean inside.
