You Guys Goin Cry Inside, An Afta Dat, You Goin Stay Good Inside
16 “In litto wile, you guys no goin see me. Den litto wile moa, you guys goin see me.”
17 Den some a da guys he wen teach wen tell each odda, “Eh, wass he talking bout? He say, ‘In litto wile, you guys no goin see me. Den litto wile moa, you guys goin see me.’ An how come he say, ‘Cuz I going to my Fadda’?” 18 So dey wen say, “Wass dis he mean, ‘In litto wile’? We donno wat he talking bout.”
19 Jesus know dey like aks him question, so he tell um, “I wen say, ‘In litto wile you guys no goin see me. Den litto wile moa, an you guys goin see me.’ Dat wat you aksing each odda bout? 20 Dass good you aks! An I like tell you guys dis too: you guys goin cry an come sad inside, but da peopo hea inside da world, dey goin stay good inside. You guys goin be crying inside, but afta, you guys goin stay good inside. 21 You know, wen one wahine goin born one baby, she sad cuz she stay suffa. But afta da baby born, she no tink bout dat no moa. Den she stay good inside cuz one baby wen born hea inside dis world. 22 Same ting wit you guys: Now, you guys stay sad an crying inside, but bumbye I goin see you guys again, an den you guys goin stay good inside. Dat time, no goin get nobody can make you feel bad again.
23 “Wen dat time come, you guys no goin need aks me bout notting. Dass right!

Aks now, an you guys goin get um, so you guys can stay good inside to da max.
