GENESIS: KAWATASAN KARENG ATLUNG AMANU
(KAPAMPANGAN, PORTUGES, AMPONG TAGALOG)*
(Kapampangan)
ENESIS
I Kain taganang balu nang balu
e mapamangan gule ing Apung Ginu

Ing kayang salada e mepansin at metakman
pauli ning derang nang Abel a sidsad keng nyaman

Metung yang batu ampong metung a kerot ing kayang tatalnan
migtalungku ya i Kain keng lalam ning metung a tanaman

Tutung sinawa ne mu naman i Kain ampong mesumami
anya oyta pepalaklak ne i Abel kareng danupan a buwitri
(Portuges)
GÊNESE
O Caim soube completamente
que o Deus não é um vegetariano

A salada dele foi desprezada
em favor de churrascos de Abel

Estava segurando uma pedra e uma cenoura
ele sentou debaixo duma árvore

Ele teve já bastante disso
ele alimentou Abel aos abutres
(Tagalog)
HENESIS
Alam na alam ni Kain
sa gulay ang Diyos ay di palakain

Ang kanyang salada ay di man lang tinikman
dahil sa inihaw ni Abel na ubod sa linamnam

Tangan-tangan ay isang karot at isang bato
naupo si Kain sa lilim ng isang puno

Napuno na't lahat si Kain
kaya't si Abel sa mga buwitre'y pinakain

About the author. Papa Osmubal is Oscar Balajadia of Magalang (Well, don't get fooled by that name), now a Macau resident (Sorry, where?) and married to a Chinese local (How? How come? Why?). He has been a Catholic seminarian (OK, he once opened a book at an exam in Latin and Romance Languages—but who in frigging hell did not?), a Catholic missionary (Oh, the rosary is the answer to our country's economic problems and to your alcoholism and addiction to nicotine!), a bookstore staffer (Yes, sir, listen here, we know it is urgent, so your book is on its way from Guangzhou and will be here in 8 months!), a librarian (Oh, it's Friday the 13th and I am not putting 666 as Dewey call number on this bloody book!), and a teaching assistant (OK, pal, I know you prepared for the exams so I will check and mark them!). He is currently a teacher (yawn) and has an M.A. in English Studies (yawn even more, nod off, and then snore) from the University of Macau (sorry again, where?).
