The incorrect 10 Commandments in Ilonggo (Hiligaynon)

I photographed this giant Ten Commandments tablet at the St. Nicolas of Tolentino Parish in Guimbal, Iloilo. Locals simply this church as Guimbal church.

Though the incorrect part is the second commandment, in English should be “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, in the water or under the earth.” But since it contradicts the Catholic church practice, they had to revise.

Anyway here it is, all the words are written in Hiligaynon, the local language of the island.

Ang Napulo ka Sugo sang Dios

1. Magtuo ka sa Dios kag magsimba sa iya lamang.
2. Dili mo paghingalanan ang Ngalan sang Dios sa walay kapuslanan.
3. Pakasantuson mo ang adlaw sang Ginoo
4. Tahura ang Imo Amay kag iloy.
5. Dili ka magpatay.
6. Dili ka magpakasala batok sa pagkaulay.
7. Dili ka magpangawat.
8. Dili ka magbutig.
9. Dili ka magkaluyag sa asawa sang imo isigkatawo.
10. Dili ka magkaibog sang mga manggad sang imo isigkatawo.
