I’ve been reading through the Pauline Letters and was in 1 Timothy this morning. Sometimes I like checking passages out in other versions – Da Jesus Book (the Hawai’i Pidgin Bible) is often a favorite:
We all say dis:
Da stuff bout God, dat befo time was secret, dass importan fo real kine.
Christ wen come, wit one body jalike us.
Godʼs Spirit wen show proof dat Christ stay right.
Da angel guys from God wen see him.
His guys wen teach da diffren peopos all ova da world bout him.
Get peopo inside da world dat trus him.
God wen take him back to da awesome place inside da sky.
– Numba 1 Fo Timoty 3:16 – da Jesus Book

Ha! I served as a short term missionary to Molokai, Hawaii for a summer college ministry. I remember coming across the “Pidgin Book” Bible in some second hand store and getting a good chuckle out of it…I wish I had bought it now!
Thanks for the comment! I got a “hard copy” at a Christian Bookstore in the International Marketplace in Honolulu. I use it sometimes, but the YouVersion app has Da Jesus Book as one of their downloadable versions now. Blessings!
