The Bible


Tra ta dooinney er phoosey ben, as my te myr shen nagh my-haittyn lesh ee, er-yn-oyr dy vel eh er gheddyn neu-ghlennid ennagh aynjee: eisht lhig da screeuyn-scarree 'yannoo, as y choyrt jee eh ny laue, as chyndaa ee magh ass e hie.

When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.


As tra t'ee scarrey rish e hie, foddee ee goll, as ve son ben da dooinney elley.

And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's wife.


As mannagh my-haittyn lesh y dooinney stierree ee, as eh dy choyrt screeuyn-scarree jee ayns e laue, as chyndaa ee ass e hie, ny my yiow'n dooinney stierree baase, ghow ee son ben;

And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife;


Cha vod e chied dooinney, hug ee ersooyl, goaill ee reesht dy ve son ben da, lurg j'ee ve fo yn lhiettal shoh: son ta shen eajee kiongoyrt rish y Chiarn, as cha dayrn oo peccah er y cheer, ta'n Chiarn dty Yee dy choyrt dhyt son eiraght.

Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before the Lord: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.


Tra ta dooinney noa-poost, cha jed eh magh gys y chaggey, chamoo vees currym erbee er ny choyrt er: agh bee eh seyr ec y thie son un vleïn, as nee eh gerjaghey e ven t'eh er ghoaill.
