Still yet, da younga brudda, he goin come mo importan den da odda one. Da peopo dat goin come from him, goin get mo plenny, dey goin be plenny diffren peopos.”

Dey goin tell dea kids, ‘I like God make you come jalike Efraim an Manasseh!’-” Dass how Israel wen make fo Efraim like he mo importan den his older brudda Manasseh.
