Dichoso y taotao, ni ti mamomocat gui pinagat y manaelaye, ni y ti sumasaga gui chalan manisao, ni y ti matatachong gui siyan
ayo sija y manmanmofefea. Lao guiya lay Jeova, ayo y minagofña, ya y layña jajaso, jaane yan puenge.
Ya taegüijeja y trongcon jayo ni y matanme gui oriyan sadog, ya guaja tinegchaña gui tiempoña, ya y jagonña ti umalayo;
ya todo y finatinasña mumemegae.

Lao ti taegüine y manaelaye; lao parejo yan y paja ni y güinaefe ni y manglo. Sa enao na ti mangajujulo y manaelaye gui sentensia; ni y manisao gui y inetnon manunas. Sa si Jeova jatungo y chalan
