|For it is so written in|
The Cockney Bible is a translation of some of the books of the Bible into Cockney rhyming slang. At present it contains nine stories from the Old Testament and the Gospel according to Mark. It was written by Mike Coles, the head of Religious Education at Sir John Cass Church of England secondary school in Stepney, East London and was published on 16 May 2001.
It met with approval from the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Rev. George Carey, who said at the time, "The Bible in Cockney takes the Bible out of the formal church setting, and puts it back into the marketplace, into the streets where it originally took place. This version puts energy and passion back into the stories. If it manages to get people reading the Bible who would not normally do so, then it has achieved an invaluable work." 
Here's the Lord's Prayer in Cockney: 
“”Hello, Dad, up there in good ol’ Heaven,
Your name is well great and holy, and we respect you, Guv.
