The Bible


Cha bee ec ny saggyrtyn ny Leviteyn, as slane tribe Levi, ayrn ny eiraght erbee marish Israel: nee ad beaghey er oural y Chiarn jeant lesh aile, myr nyn eiraght,

The priests the Levites, and all the tribe of Levi, shall have no part nor inheritance with Israel: they shall eat the offerings of the Lord made by fire, and his inheritance.


Shen-y-fa cha bee eiraght erbee oc mastey nyn mraaraghyn: ta'n Chiarn yn eiraght oc, myr t'eh er ghra roo.

Therefore shall they have no inheritance among their brethren: the Lord is their inheritance, as he hath said unto them.


As shoh vees cair y taggyrt veih'n pobble, vouesyn ta chebbal oural, edyr eh dy ve dow ny keyrrey: as ver ad da'n taggyrt y slhingan, as y kione, as y mynnagh.

And this shall be the priest's due from the people, from them that offer a sacrifice, whether it be ox or sheep; and they shall give unto the priest the shoulder, and the two cheeks, and the maw.


Yn chied-vess myrgeddin jeh dty arroo, jeh dty feeyn, as Jeh dty ooil, as y chied loamrey jeh dty chirree ver oo da.

The firstfruit also of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the first of the fleece of thy sheep, shalt thou give him.


Son ta'n Chiarn dty Yee er reih eshyn ass ooilley dty hribeyn, dy yannoo shirveish kinjagh ayns ennym y Chiarn, eh hene as e vee son dy bragh.

For the Lord thy God hath chosen him out of all thy tribes, to stand to minister in the name of the Lord, him and his sons for ever.


As my hig Levite voish veg jeh dty yiattyn ass ooilley Israel, raad v'eh cummal, as cheet dy arryltagh gys yn ymmyd nee'n Chiarn y reih;

And if a Levite come from any of thy gates out of all Israel, where he sojourned, and come with all the desire of his mind unto the place which the Lord shall choose;


Eisht nee eh shirveish ayns ennym y Chiarn e Yee, myr ta ooilley e vraaraghyn ny Leviteyn dy yannoo, ta ayns shen shassoo kiongoyrt rish y Chiarn.

Then he shall minister in the name of the Lord his God, as all his brethren the Levites do, which stand there before the Lord.


Bee'n beaghey oc co-chorrym, cheumooie ny ta cheet stiagh huggey liorish creck e eiraght.

They shall have like portions to eat, beside that which cometh of the sale of his patrimony.


Tra vees oo er jeet gys y cheer ta'n Chiarn dty Yee er choyrt dhyt, cha nynsee oo dy yannoo lurg cliaghtaghyn eajee ny ashoonyn shen.

When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.


Cha bee ry-gheddyn ny mast' eu unnane erbee ta cur er e vac ny e inneen dy gholl trooid yn aile, ny jannoo faishnys, ny coyrt geill da traaghyn, ny fir-obbee, ny buitch.

There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.


Ny fer-druiagh, ny fer lesh lhiannan-shee, ny fer ta jannoo oalys, ny fer ta shirrey coyrle jeh ny merriu.

Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.


Son ta ooilley ny ta geiyrt er ny reddyn shoh feohdoil da'n Chiarn: son kyndagh rish ny cliaghtaghyn feohdoil shoh, ta'n Chiarn dty Yee dy eebyrt ad magh royd.

For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.


Nee oo lhiantyn dy ynrick gys y Chiarn dty Yee.

Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God.


Son deaisht ny ashoonyn shoh, t'ou dy gheddyn son eiraght, roosyn ta coyrt geill da traaghyn, as rish fir-obbee: agh er dty hon's, cha vel y Chiarn dty Yee lowal dhyt's dy yannoo y lheid.

For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the Lord thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.


Phadeyr nee'n Chiarn dty Yee troggal seose dhyt veih ny mast' eu, jeh dty vraaraghyn, casley rhym's, rishyn nee shiu geaishtagh.

The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;


Cordail rish ooilley ny deearree oo er y Chiarn dty Yee ayns Horeb, ayns laa yn chaglym, gra, Ny lhig dou clashtyn reesht coraa'n Chiarn my Yee; chamoo lhig dou fakin yn aile mooar shoh arragh, nagh voym baase.

According to all that thou desiredst of the Lord thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the Lord my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not.


As dooyrt y Chiarn rhym, T'ad er loayrt dy mie ayns ny t'ad er ghra.

And the Lord said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken.


As Phadeyr neem's troggal seose daue veih mastey nyn mraaraghyn, easley rhyt's, as ver-yms my ghoan ayns e veeall, as loayree eshyn roo ooilley neem's y harey da.

I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.


As hig eh gy-kione, quoi-erbee nagh neaisht rish my ghoan nee eshyn 'loayrt ayns yn ennym aym's, goym's cooilleeney er.

And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.


Agh y phadeyr ghoys er dy loayrt fockle ayns m'ennym's, nagh vel mish er harey da dy loayrt, ny loayrys ayns ennym jeeghyn joarree, bee eer y phadeyr shen er ny stroie.

But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.


As my jir oo ayns dty chree, Kys yiow mayd fys er y goo, nagh vel y Chiarn er loayrt?

And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the Lord hath not spoken?


Tra ta phadeyr loayrt ayns ennym y Chiarn, as mannagh jig yn red gy-kione, ny ve cooilleenit, shen y red nagh vel y Chiarn er loayrt, agh ta'n phadeyr er loayrt eh dy daaney er e chione hene: cha bee aggle ort roish.

When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.
