Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the Lord your God.


Nee shiu freayll my ghooneeyn, as cur onnor da my ynnyd casherick. Mish y Chiarn.

Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the Lord.


My nee shiu shooyl ayns my lattyssyn, as freayll m'annaghyn, as jannoo ad;

If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them;


Eisht ver-yms fliaghey diu 'syn imbagh cooie, as ver y thalloo magh e bishagh, as nee biljyn y vagher gymmyrkey nyn mess.

As nee n bwoalley eu roshtyn gys y fouyr-feeyney, as y fouyr-feeyney gys y traa-correy: as bee nyn saie arran eu, as nee shiu baghey dy sauchey ayns y cheer.

As ver-yms shee 'sy cheer eu as nee shiu lhie sheese, as cha bee aggle erbee erriu: as eiyr-ym ersooyl drogh-veishtyn ass y cheer, chamoo hed y cliwe [caggee] trooid y cheer.

And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land.


As hed shiuish er eiyrt's nyn noidyn, as tuittee ad rhymbiu liorish y chliwe,

And five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword.


Son neem's soiaghey jiuish, as jannoo shiu messoil, as bishaghey shiu, as niartaghey my chonaant riu.

I am the Lord your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that ye should not be their bondmen; and I have broken the bands of your yoke, and made you go upright.


Agh mannagh jean shiu m'y chlashtyn, as nagh gooilleen shiu ooilley ny oardaghyn shoh;

But if ye will not hearken unto me, and will not do all these commandments;


As my nee shiu soiaghey beg jeh my lattyssyn, as cur-cooyl rish my vriwnyssyn, as nagh jean shiu cooilleeney m'annaghyn, agh brishey my chonaant;

And if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul abhor my judgments, so that ye will not do all my commandments, but that ye break my covenant:


Shoh myrgeddin neem's y yannoo riuish, ver-yms lhiam erriu atchim, consumption, as crayn-losht, ver naardey'n soilshey, as cur sneih er y chree; nee shiu cuirr nyn sheel ayns fardail, son nee nyn noidyn gee eh.

I also will do this unto you; I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.


As nee'm soiaghey m eddin nyn 'oï, as bee shiu er nyn stroie roish nyn noidyn. as nee ad reill harrish-diu, as nee shiu roie er-chea, tra nagh bee fer erbee er nyn eiyrt's.

As brish-yms mooaralys nyn booar; as nee'm yn aer harrish nyn ghing myr yiarn, as yn ooir eu myr prash:

And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass:


As bee'n niart eu baarit ayns fardail son cha jean y thalloo eu cur magh e bishagh, ny biljyn y thallooin nyn mess.

And your strength shall be spent in vain: for your land shall not yield her increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruits.

Then will I also walk contrary unto you, and will punish you yet seven times for your sins.

As tra ta mish er vrishey lorg nyn arran, nee jeih mraane gaarlaghey nyn arran 'syn un oghe, as ver ad diu nyn arran reesht liorish towse: as nee shiu gee, as cha bee shiu jeant magh.

And when I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver you your bread again by weight: and ye shall eat, and not be satisfied.


As mannagh jean shiu, son ooilley shoh, cur geill dooys agh tannaghtyn kinjagh mee-viallagh;

Then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins.


As bee shiu eginit dy ee feill nyn mec, as feill nyn inneenyn.

And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat.

And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images, and cast your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, and my soul shall abhor you.


As ver-yms naardey nyn ard-valjyn, as stroie-ym ny chiambleyn eu: as cha jean-ym soiagh jeh nyn ourallyn-millish.

And I will make your cities waste, and bring your sanctuaries unto desolation, and I will not smell the savour of your sweet odours.


As neem's y cheer eu follym-faase: as nee nyn noidyn cummal ayn, as gowee ad yindys.

Eisht yiow yn thalloo ny dooneeyn dy aash, choud as te ny lhie treigit, as shiuish ayns cheer nyn noidyn; eisht yiow'n thalloo fea dy gheddyn e ghooneeyn.

Then shall the land enjoy her sabbaths, as long as it lieth desolate, and ye be in your enemies' land; even then shall the land rest, and enjoy her sabbaths.


Choud as te ny lhie bane, bee aash echey, er-yn-oyr nagh dooar eh aash e ghooneeyn, as shiuish cummal ayn.

As long as it lieth desolate it shall rest; because it did not rest in your sabbaths, when ye dwelt upon it.


As orroosyn vees faagit bio jiuish, ver-yms annooinid cree ayns cheer nyn noidyn; as nee feiyr duillag criht ad y agglaghey; as nee ad chea, myr veih'n chliwe: as nee ad tuittym, tra nagh bee fer er nyn eiyrt's.

And upon them that are left alive of you I will send a faintness into their hearts in the lands of their enemies; and the sound of a shaken leaf shall chase them; and they shall flee, as fleeing from a sword; and they shall fall when none pursueth.


As nee ad tuittym harrish y cheilley myr roish y chliwe, tra nagh vel fer erbee er nyn eiyrt's: as cha bee veg y vree ayndiu dy hassoo roish nyn noidyn.

If they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against me, and that also they have walked contrary unto me;


As dy vel mish neesht er choyrt-cooyl roosyn, as er chur lhiam ad gys cheer nyn noidyn; my vees eisht nyn greeaghyn mee-vialagh er nyn injillaghey, as ad dy ghoaill-rish kerraghey nyn beccaghyn:

And that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity:

Yn thalloo neesht ta treigit lioroo, yiow eh e ghooneeyn (e aash,) choud as te ny lhie feayn nyn vegooish: as nee ad goaill-rish kerraghey nyn beccaghyn; eer er-yn-oyr, dy dug yn annym oc feoh da my lattyssyn.

The land also shall be left of them, and shall enjoy her sabbaths, while she lieth desolate without them: and they shall accept of the punishment of their iniquity: because, even because they despised my judgments, and because their soul abhorred my statutes.


Agh ny-yeih, tra vees ad ayns cheer nyn noidyn, cha jean-ym ad y hilgey ersooyl, chamoo ver-ym feoh daue, dy stroie ad dy bollagh, dy vrishey my chonaant roo: son mish y Chiarn y Jee oc.

And yet for all that, when they be in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly, and to break my covenant with them: for I am the Lord their God.


Agh nee'm er y ghraih oc, cooinaghtyn er conaant nyn shenn-ayryn, ad chur mish lhiam magh ass cheer Egypt, ayns shilley ny ashoonee, dy ve yn Jee oc: Mish y Chiarn.

But I will for their sakes remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the heathen, that I might be their God: I am the Lord.
