Holy Scripture in Hiligaynon dialect translated to English language

Kay bangud sa bugay naluwas kamo paagi sa pagtoo;
For because by grace saved  you  by       faith
For by grace you were saved by faith;

Kag ini indi inyo kaugalingon nga buhat,
and this not your(pl.) self   's  work
and this not your own work

ini amo ang dolot sang Dios-
this is the gift  of   God
this is the gift of God-

indi bangud sa mga buhat,
not  because by works
not because of works,

basi ang bisan sin-ong tawo magpabugal.
lest the    whoever    person caused to pride
lest any man should be proud.

- Mga Taga-Efeso 2:8-9
- Ephesians 2:8-9

Kay may isa ka Dios,
For there's one(no.) God
For there is one God.

kag may isa ka manugpatunga
and there's one(no.) middle person
and there is one mediator

sa Dios kag sa mga tawo,
to God  and to (pl.) man
between God and men,

ang tawo nga si Cristo Jesus,
the man  that's (person) Christ Jesus
the man Christ Jesus,

- 1 Timoteo 2:5
- 1 Timothy 2:5
