Strecht on the back o that the Spirit drave him awà tae the muirs, an there he bade the feck o sax ouks, tempit aa the time bi Sautan; an tho he hed nane but the wild beass tae neipour him, the angels fetteclt him.
1 IN THE BEGINNIN o aa things the Wurd wis there erse, an the Wurd bade wi God, an the Wurd wis God. He wis wi God i the beginnin, an aa things cam tae be throu him, an wiout him no ae thing cam tae be. Aathing at hes come tae be, he wis the life in it, an that life wis the licht o man; an ey the licht shines i the mirk, an the mirk downa slocken it nane.
