१) पृथ्वि सकभिनं छपुं  वङाव, समस्त लोकयातं, सत्यचर्य्या गुलि बाखा ल्हाङाव, थुयकिव, ग्वम्हं चर्य्या  थुयाव मानय या

Then you go out everywhere in the world and tell all the people the story of the truthful path; those that understand and believe shall be saved and go to Vaikuntha heaven, those that do not will surely go to hell, such are the words of Jesus.

Mark 16:15-16
King James Version

15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
