Friday Fun - Hillbilly's Ten Commandments


Some people in Tennessee have trouble with all those "shalls" and "shall nots" in the Ten commandments. Folks around these here parts just ain't used to talkin' in those terms. 

So.....some folks in middle Tennessee got together and translated the "King James" into "Jackson County" language....no joke, read on.....

The Hillbilly's Ten Commandments 

(posted on the wall at Cross Trails Church in Gainesboro, TN)

(1) Just one God

(2) Honor yer Ma and Pa
(3) No tellin' tales or gossipin'
(4) Git yourself to Sunday meetin'
(5) Put nothin' before God
(6) No foolin' around with another fellow's gal
(7) No killin'
(8) Watch yer mouth
(9) Don't take what ain't yers
(10) Don't be hankerin' for yer buddy's stuff

Now that's kinda plain an' simple, don't ya think? 

 
Y'all have a nice day.  

Friday Blessings to each of you!!!

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
