But people wey write Bible no be like that, dem even write the time wey other people win dem for war. Dem still write their own mistake. For example, Moses write the big mistake wey e make, and wetin God do am. (Numbers 20:2-12) As the people wey write Bible talk true, e make us know sey Bible come from God and we fit trust am.
