Nish lurg baase Voses sharvaant y Chiarn haink eh gy-kione, dy loayr y Chiarn rish Joshua mac Nun, shirveishagh Voses, gra,

Now after the death of Moses the servant of the Lord it came to pass, that the Lord spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister, saying,


Ta Moses my harvaant marroo; nish er-y-fa-shen trog ort, gow harrish yn awin shoh Jordan, uss, as ooilley yn pobble shoh, gys y cheer ta mee dy choyrt daue, dy jarroo da cloan Israel.

Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel.


Dy chooilley voayl ver shiu boyn nyn goshey er, shen ta mee er choyrt diuish, myr dooyrt mee rish Moses.

Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.


Veih'n assagh as Lebanon shoh, eer gys yn awin vooar, yn awin Euphrates, ooilley cheer ny Hittiteyn, as gys yn aarkey vooar lesh lhie ny greïney vees cagliagh y cheer eu.

From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast.


Cha bee dooinney erbee abyl dy hassoo royd ooilley laghyn dty vea: myr va mee marish Moses, shen myr bee'm mayrts: cha jeanym falleil, ny treigeil oo.

There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.


Bee dunnal as jeh cree mie; son da'n pobble shoh nee oo rheynn son eiraght yn cheer, loo mee da nyn ayraghyn dy choyrt daue.

Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.


Ynrycan bee jeh cree mie as feer dunnal, dy vod oo cur tastey dy yannoo cordail rish ooilley'n leigh hug Moses my harvaant ayns currym dhyt: ny chyndaa veih gys y laue yesh ny gys y laue hoshtal, dy vod oo bishaghey cre-erbee yn raad t'ou goll.

Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest.


Bee'n lioar shoh jeh'n leigh dy kinjagh ayns dty veeal; as bee dty smooinaghtyn dowin ayn oie as laa, dy vod oo tastey y ghoaill dy yannoo cordail rish ooilley ny ta scruit ayn: son eisht hig dty chooishyn dy mie lhiat, as bee oo er dty vannaghey.

This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.


Nagh nee mish t'er choyrt sarey dhyt? Bee dunnal as creeoil; ny bee aggle ort, chamoo bee mettey: son ta'n Chiarn dty Yee mayrt cre-erbee yn raad t'ou chyndaa.

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.


Eisht hug Joshua sarey da leeideilee yn pobble, gra,

Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying,


Gow jee trooid y champ, as cur-jee currym da'n pobble, gra, Fow-jee aarloo dy chooilley nhee ta ymmyrchagh; son cheusthie jeh three laa hed shiu harrish yn Jordan shoh, dy gholl stiagh as dy ghoaill diu hene yn cheer, ta'n Chiarn yn Jee eu dy choyrt diu myr eiraght.

Pass through the host, and command the people, saying, Prepare you victuals; for within three days ye shall pass over this Jordan, to go in to possess the land, which the Lord your God giveth you to possess it.


As rish ny Reubeniteyn, as rish ny Gaditeyn, as rish lieh-tribe Vanasseh, loayr Joshua, gra,

And to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to half the tribe of Manasseh, spake Joshua, saying,


Cooinee-jee er ny goan ren Moses sharvaant y Chiarn coyrt ayns currym diu, gra, Ta'n Chiarn y Jee eu er choyrt diuish fea, as er choyrt diu yn thalloo shoh.

Remember the word which Moses the servant of the Lord commanded you, saying, The Lord your God hath given you rest, and hath given you this land.


Nee ny mraane, yn chloan, as y maase eu, tannaghtyn ayns y cheer hug Moses diu cheu shoh dy Yordan; agh hed shiu hene roish nyn mraaraghyn armit, ooilley ny deiney caggee niartal, as coon jee lhieu,

Your wives, your little ones, and your cattle, shall remain in the land which Moses gave you on this side Jordan; but ye shall pass before your brethren armed, all the mighty men of valour, and help them;


Derrey vees y Chiarn er choyrt fea da nyn mraaraghyn, myr t'eh er choyrt diuish, as derrey t'adsyn myrgeddin er ghoaill possession jeh'n cheer ta'n Chiarn yn Jee eu dy choyrt daue: eisht nee shiuish chyndaa gys cheer yn eiraght eu hene, as soylley 'ghoaill jeh, ren Moses, sharvaant y Chiarn, coyrt diu er y cheu shoh dy Yordan, lesh irree ny greïney.

Until the Lord have given your brethren rest, as he hath given you, and they also have possessed the land which the Lord your God giveth them: then ye shall return unto the land of your possession, and enjoy it, which Moses the Lord's servant gave you on this side Jordan toward the sunrising.


As dreggyr ad Joshua, gra, Ooilley ny t'ou dy harey dooin nee mayd jannoo, as raad erbee ver oo shiu nee mayd goll.

And they answered Joshua, saying, All that thou commandest us we will do, and whithersoever thou sendest us, we will go.


Myr hug shiu biallys da Moses ayns dy chooilley nhee, myr shen nee mayd geaishtagh rhyts: as dy row yn Chiarn dty Yee mayrt, myr v'eh marish Moses.

According as we hearkened unto Moses in all things, so will we hearken unto thee: only the Lord thy God be with thee, as he was with Moses.


Quoi-erbee nee girree magh noi dty harey, as nagh der geill da dty ghoan ayns ooilley ny t'ou dy oardagh, bee eh er ny choyrt gy-baase: agh bee uss dunnal as jeh

Whosoever he be that doth rebel against thy commandment, and will not hearken unto thy words in all that thou commandest him, he shall be put to death: only be strong and of a good courage.
