You can use the innerText property of your paragraph to change its text content. This is done this way:

newParagraph.innerText = "JavaScript is enabled";

I'd recommend you take another look at the preceding videos, to make sure you got everything right, as traversing and manipulating the DOM is an important part of JavaScript and will often be used in the future.
