He wen get outa da ocean okay, but da gods no goin let um stay alive.” 5 But Paul wen shake da snake from his hand inside da fire, an notting wen happen to Paul. 6 Da peopo wen tink he goin swell up o mahke fast.

An den we wen go way from dea fo go Rome. 15 Da bruddas ova dea wen hear dat we stay coming, an dey wen come to da Appius Market an da Three Taverns fo meet us. Wen Paul wen spock dem, dat wen kokua him, an he wen tank God.
16 We wen go inside Rome, an dey wen let Paul stay inside one place by himself, an one army guy wen guard um.
17 Afta three days Paul wen tell da leadas fo da Jewish peopo fo come. Wen dey wen come, Paul wen tell um, “My bruddas, I neva do notting agains our peopo o agains our ancesta guys ways. But dey wen bus me inside Jerusalem an hand me ova to da Rome guys. 18 Da Rome guys wen aks me plenny stuffs, an dey wen like let me go, cuz I neva do notting dat say I gotta mahke. 19 But da Jewish guys neva like dem fo let me go, so den, I wen say I gotta come in front da Big King Cesar.

But first Paul wen say, “Godʼs Spesho Spirit wen tell yoa ancesta guys da trut! Isaiah wen talk fo him 26 an say,

Dass wat Isaiah wen say.”
