When the Lord thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou;


As erreish da'n Chiarn v'er livrey ad dhyt: nee oo nyn mwoalley, as nyn stroie dy bollagh, cha jean oo conaant erbee roo, ny myghin y hoilshaghey daue:

And when the Lord thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them:


Chamoo jean poosaghyn roo; cha der oo dty inneen da'n mac echeysyn, chamoo nee oo yn inneen echeysyn y ghoaill da dty vac.

Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.


Son cleaynee ad dty vac voym's, dy hirveish jeeghyn joarree: myr shoh vees corree yn Chiarn er ny oaddey nyn 'oï, as stroie eh shiu doaltattym.

For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the Lord be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly.


Agh shoh myr nee shiu dellal roo, nee shiu nyn altaryn y stroie, as ny jallooyn oc y lhieggal, as ny keylljyn oc y yiarey sheese, as ny jallooyn grainnit oc y lostey lesh aile.

But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with fire.


Son pobble casherick shiuish gys y Chiarn nyn Yee: ta'n Chiarn nyn Yee er reih shiu dy ve ny phobble er-lheh da hene erskyn dy chooilley ashoon t'er feaï ny crooinney.

For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.


Cha nee son dy row shiuish ny shlee ayns earroo, dy hoie yn Chiarn e ghraih erriu, ny dy ren eh nyn reih (son va shiuish yn ashoon by-loo jeh dy chooilley ashoon)

The Lord did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:


Agh son dy row eh aigney mie yn Chiarn dy choyrt graih diu, as dy chooilleeney yn breearrey ren eh da ny ayraghyn eu, ta'n Chiarn er choyrt lesh shiu magh lesh laue niartal, as er livrey shiu ass thie ny bondiaght, veih laue Pharaoh ree Egypt.

But because the Lord loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the Lord brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.


Toig er-y-fa shen, dy nee yn Chiarn dty Yee, yn ynrickan Jee, yn Jee firrinagh, ta cooilleeney conaant, as myghin roosyn ta graihagh er, as freayll e annaghyn, gys thousane sheeloghe

Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;


As goaill kerraghey orroosyn ta dwoaie oc er, gys nyn eddin, dy stroie ad; cha bee eh liastey ayns briwnys n'oïsyn ta dwoaiagh er, nee eh cooilleeney eh dy foshlit.

And repayeth them that hate him to their face, to destroy them: he will not be slack to him that hateth him, he will repay him to his face.


Nee oo er-y-fa shen freayll ny annaghyn, as ny slattyssyn, as ny briwnyssyn ta mee dy harey dhyt yn laa jiu dy chooilleeney.

Thou shalt therefore keep the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which I command thee this day, to do them.


Shen-y-fa hig eh gy-kione, my eaishtys shiu rish ny briwnyssyn shoh, dy reaylley as dy yannoo ad; dy jean y Chiarn dty Yee freayll rhyt's yn conaant as y myghin vreear eh da dty ayraghyn.

Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the Lord thy God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which he sware unto thy fathers:


As ver eh graih dhyt, as nee eh dty vannaghey, as dty vishaghey: ver eh myrgeddin bannaght er sluight dty vreïn, as mess dty hallooin arroo as feeyn, as ooil as bishaght dty helloo, as dty hioltaneyn keyrragh, ayns y cheer vreear eh da dty ayraghyn dy choyrt dhyt.

And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee.


Bee oo bannit erskyn dy chooilley ashoon: cha bee edyr fyrrynagh ny bwoirrinagh gennish ny mast' eu hene, ny mastey nyn maase.

Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle.


As nee yn Chiarn scughey voïd dy chooilley hingys, as cha der eh ort veg jeh doghanyn eajee ny Egyptianee (myr honnick oo hene) agh ver eh ad orroosyn ooilley ta dwoaiagh ort.

And the Lord will take away from thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee; but will lay them upon all them that hate thee.


As nee oo stroie ooilley ny ashoonyn, nee'n Chiarn dty Yee y livrey hood: cha bee chymmey ec dty hooill orroo: chamoo nee oo shirveish ny jeeghyn oc; son bee shen ny ribbeh dhyt.

And thou shalt consume all the people which the Lord thy God shall deliver thee; thine eye shall have no pity upon them: neither shalt thou serve their gods; for that will be a snare unto thee.


My jir oo ayns dty chree, Ta ny ashoonyn shoh ny shlee na mish, kys oddym's ad y eiyrt magh?

If thou shalt say in thine heart, These nations are more than I; how can I dispossess them?


Ny bee aggle ort roue: agh cooinee dy mie, cre ren y Chiarn dty Yee rish Pharaoh, as rish ooilley Egypt;

Thou shalt not be afraid of them: but shalt well remember what the Lord thy God did unto Pharaoh, and unto all Egypt;


Ny prowallyn mooarey honnick dty hooillyn, as ny cowraghyn, as ny yindyssyn, as y laue niartal, as y roih sheeynt magh, lhieu ren y Chiarn dty Yee uss y chur lesh magh: y lheid cheddin nee'n Chiarn y Jee ayd's rish dy chooilley ashoon, roue ta aggle ort.

The great temptations which thine eyes saw, and the signs, and the wonders, and the mighty hand, and the stretched out arm, whereby the Lord thy God brought thee out: so shall the Lord thy God do unto all the people of whom thou art afraid.


Marish shoh, ver y Chiarn dty Yee yn shellan-nieunagh nyn mastey, derrey vees adsyn vees er-mayrn, as nee follaghey ad hene voïds, er nyn stroie.

Moreover the Lord thy God will send the hornet among them, until they that are left, and hide themselves from thee, be destroyed.


Cha bee aggle ort roue: son ta'n Chiarn dty Yee ny mast'eu, ny Yee pooaral, as atchimagh.

Thou shalt not be affrighted at them: for the Lord thy God is among you, a mighty God and terrible.


As nee yn Chiarn dty Yee ny ashoonyn shoh y ghoaill jeh ny veggan as ny veggan: cha vel oo dy stroie ad ooilley ec keayrt, er-aggle dy jean beishtyn feïe y vagher bishaghey ort.

And the Lord thy God will put out those nations before thee by little and little: thou mayest not consume them at once, lest the beasts of the field increase upon thee.


As nee'n Chiarn dty Yee ad y livrey hood, as ad y stroie lesh toyrt-mow niartal, derrey vees ad dy bollagh er nyn astyrt.

But the Lord thy God shall deliver them unto thee, and shall destroy them with a mighty destruction, until they be destroyed.


As nee eh ny reeaghyn oc y livrey gys dty laue, as nee uss dolley nyn enmyn fo niau: cha jarg dooinney jeu shassoo royd, derrey t'ou er stroie ad.

And he shall deliver their kings into thine hand, and thou shalt destroy their name from under heaven: there shall no man be able to stand before thee, until thou have destroyed them.


Jallooyn grainnit ny jeeghyn oc nee shiu lostey lesh aile; cha der oo saynt da'n argid ny yn airh t'orroo, dy ghoaill eh dhyt hene, er-aggle dy bee oo er dty hayrn ayns ribbeh liorish; son te feohdoil da'n Chiarn dty Yee.

The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire: thou shalt not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor take it unto thee, lest thou be snared therin: for it is an abomination to the Lord thy God.


Chamoo ver oo lhiat red erbee mollaghtagh stiagh ayns dty hie, er-aggle dy bee oo hene ny red mollaghtagh casley rish: agh ver oo veih dty chree feoh da, as dy dwoaiagh scarrey rish, son red custey eh.

Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing.
