People here in Texas have trouble with King James and all those Shalls
and Shall Nots in the Ten Commandments. Folks here just aren't use to
talking in those terms. So, some folks out in West Texas got together
and translated the Greek into "King Ranch" language.
10 Commandments, Cowboy-Style, posted on the wall at Cross Trails
Church in Fairlie, Texas.
1 Just One God.
2 Honor yer Ma & Pa.
3 No tellin' tales or gossipin'.
4 Git yerself to Sund'y Pray'r Meetin'.
5 Put Nuthin' before God.
6 No follin' around with another fella's gal.
7 No murdrin'
8 Watch yer mouth.
9 Don't take what ain't yers.
10 Don't be hankrin for yer buddy's stuff
Now that's kinda plain 'n simple, doncha think? Y'all hav a good day
now! Ya heer?
