||James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.
||Jamys sharvaant Yee as nyn Jiarn Yeesey Creest, gys y daa heeloghe jeig ta skeaylt fud y theihll, bea as slaynt.
||My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
||My vraaraghyn, jeeagh-jee er myr oyr dy ard-voggey tra huittys shiu ayns caghlaaghyn dy heaghyn;
||Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
||Toiggal shoh, dy vel prowal nyn gredjue gobbraghey meenid.
||But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
||Agh cur-jee slane raad da meenid dy jannoo e obbyr hene, dy vod shiu ve slane ynrick, gyn ve ergooyl ayns nhee erbee.
||If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
||My ta veg euish feme creenaght, lhig da geearree er Jee, ta coyrt dy feoilt da dy chooilley ghooinney, as nagh vel mooaraghey, as bee eh er ny choyrt da.
||But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
||Agh lhig da geearree ayns credjue, fegooish lheaystey; son t'eshyn ta lheaystey ['sy chredjue] goll-rish tonn ny marrey, immanit lesh y gheay noon as noal.
||For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
||Son ny lhig da'n dooinney shen smooinaghtyn dy vow eh nhee erbee veih'n Chiarn.
||A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
||Ta dooinney dy aigney ghooble neuhickyr ayns ooilley e raaidyn.
||Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted:
||Lhig da'n braar jeh stayd injil goaill boggey ayns dy vel eh er ny hroggal seose,
||But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.
||Agh y verchagh ayns dy vel eh er ny injillaghey; son myr blaa yn aiyr nee eh lheïe ersooyl.
||For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.
||Son cha vel y ghrian ny sleaie er nirree lesh chiass loshtee, agh t'ee fioghey yn faiyr, as ta'n blaa echey tuittym, as aalid yn chummey echey goll naardey: myr shen myrgeddin nee yn dooinney berchagh shymley ersooyl ayns e raaidyn.
||Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
||S'maynrey yn dooinney ta gymmyrkey fo seaghyn; son tra vees eh er ny phrowal, yiow eh yn attey dy vea, ta'n Chiarn er ghialdyn dauesyn ta graihagh er.
||Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
||Ny lhig da dooinney erbee gra tra t'eh er ny violaghey, Ta mee miolit liorish Jee: son ta Jee erskyn miolagh gys olk, chamoo t'eh miolaghey dooinney erbee.
||But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
||Agh ta dagh dooinney miolit, tra t'eh er ny hayrn ersooyl liorish e haynt hene, as cleaynit.
||Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
||Eisht tra ta saynt er ghientyn, t'eh gymmyrkey magh peccah: as ta peccah, tra te cooilleenit gymmyrkey magh baase.
||Do not err, my beloved brethren.
||Ny bee-jee mollit, my chaarjyn ghraihagh.
||Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
||Ta dy chooilley ghioot mie, as dy chooilley ghioot firrinagh veih'n yrjey, as cheet neose veih Ayr y toilshey, marish nagh vel caghlaa erbee, ny scadoo dy hyndaa.
||Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
||Jeh e aigney hene ren eh shinyn y gheddyn, liorish goo ny firrinys, dy voddagh shin ve myr ny chied-vessyn jeh e chretooryn.
||Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
||Shen-y-fa, my vraaraghyn ghraihagh, lhig da dy chooilley ghooinney ve arryltagh dy chlashtyn, lhiastey dy loayrt, moal gys corree:
||For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
||Son cha vel corree dooinney gobbraghey cairys Yee.
||Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
||Shen-y-fa cur-jee dy lhiattee dy chooilley neu-ghlennid, as rouyr dy olkys, as gow-jee lesh meenid yn goo ta fraueit ayndiu, ta fondagh dy hauail nyn anmeenyn.
||But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
||Agh bee-jee shiuish jeantee jeh'n goo, as cha nee ny-lomarcan clashtyn rish, molley shiu hene.
||For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
||Son my ta fer erbee ta clashtyn y goo, as gyn dy yannoo eh, t'eh casley rish dooinney cur-my-ner yn eddin dooghyssagh echey ayns gless.
||For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
||Son yeeagh eh er hene, as hie eh roish, as chelleeragh yarrood eh cre'n keint dy ghooinney v'eh.
||But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
||Agh quoi-erbee ta jeeaghyn dy dowin ayns leigh yn seyrsnys firrinagh, as tannaghtyn ayn; nagh vel jarrood ny t'eh dy chlashtyn, agh fer ta jannoo yn obbyr, bee'n dooinney shoh bannit ayns e yannoo.
||If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.
||My ta dooinney erbee nyn mast' eu ta ayns fakin dy ve crauee, as nagh vel smaghtaghey e hengey, agh moylley yn cree echey hene, ta craueeaght yn dooinney shoh fardail.
||Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
||Craueeaght firrinagh as glen kiongoyrt rish Jee, dy jarroo yn Ayr, shoh eh, Dy ghoaill kiarail jeh cloan gyn ayr as mraane-treoghe ayns nyn seaghyn, as dy reayll eh hene glen veih broïd y theihll.
