As gow-jee tastey jeh'n cheer, cre te, as y pobble ta cummal ayn, vel ad lajer, ny faase, beggan ny mooarane:

And see the land, what it is, and the people that dwelleth therein, whether they be strong or weak, few or many;


As cre ta'n thalloo t'ad cummal er, vel eh mie ny sie, as cre ta ny ard-valjyn t'ad cummal ayndoo, nee ayns cabbaneyn, ny cashtallyn lajer;

And what the land is that they dwell in, whether it be good or bad; and what cities they be that they dwell in, whether in tents, or in strong holds;

And what the land is, whether it be fat or lean, whether there be wood therein, or not. And be ye of good courage, and bring of the fruit of the land. Now the time was the time of the firstripe grapes.

And they came unto the brook of Eshcol, and cut down from thence a branch with one cluster of grapes, and they bare it between two upon a staff; and they brought of the pomegranates, and of the figs.


Va'n ynnyd er ny enmys coan Eshcol, er coontey thummyd ny berrishyn feeyney, ren cloan Israel giarey sheese veih shen.
