True, Honorable, and Right

Share |
As I continue to meditate on the good, clean, and true things, I'm reading Philippians 4:8 again, but I've turned to the Gullah language text from De Nyew Testament for more enlightenment.

Me Christian bredren, las ob all, A da tell ya, mus keep on da study bout jes dem thing wa good mo den all an wa people oughta gii praise fa. Study bout dem ting wa true, dem ting wa honorable, dem ting wa right een God eye, dem ting wa ain neba mek people sin, dem ting wa mek ya wahn fa lob um, an dem ting wa people know fa be good fa true. Do dem ting A done laan oona (you). Mus do wa A beena tell ya fa do an wa ya see dat A da do. An God wa da gii we peace, e gwine be dey wid oona.


Here's the King James Version:

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
