    There are many similar Bibles out there, I mentioned one ages ago, the LOLcat Bible.

    This one's pretty good too, actually. 🙂

    It sounds really similar to Jamaican to me though.

    I think the Hawai'i pidgin is in some sense authentic.

    Immediately at LOLcat I see this: " An Ceiling Cat sawed teh lite, to seez stuffs, An splitted teh lite from dark but taht wuz ok cuz kittehs can see in teh dark An not tripz over nethin."

    By similar, I just meant it is an alternative text, quite the same as the original in meaning. It's more of a 'put-on', than anything else. It's meant to be humorous, as are most of these types of 'bibles'.

    If, however, you find more meaning in one of these alternates, then more blessings upon you. God does indeed work in mysterious ways.
