And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,


Loayr rish slane sheshaght chloan Israel, as abbyr roo, Bee-jee shiuish casherick: son ta mish y Chiarn y Jee eu casherick.

Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy.

As my vees eh er ny ee eddyr er y trass laa, te feohdoil; cha bee soiagh jeant jeh.

And if it be eaten at all on the third day, it is abominable; it shall not be accepted.
