He goin come da numba three leada fo da Babylon peopo.”
8Den all da king's smart guys come inside look, but dey no can read da writing o tell da king wat stay mean. 9So King Belshazzar come even mo scared, an his eyes come mo big. Da ali`i guys no can tink.
10Da king mudda hear da noise from da king an da ali`i guys. She go inside da place wea dey get da party. She tell, “King Belshazzar, I like you stay alive foeva! No worry!

Wen da king like somebody fo die, he kill um. Wen he like keep somebody alive, he keep um alive. Wen he like make somebody come mo importan, he make um mo importan. Wen he like make somebody come not importan, he make dem come not importan.

Az why God throw him out fo be da king, an da peopo no show respeck fo him no moa. 21Da peopo no let him stay wit dem no moa. He get da head fo tink jalike one animal.
