Shoh eisht va cronney tribe cloan Yudah lurg ny kynneeyn oc, gys ardjyn Edom; va faasagh Zin my-yiass yn chagliagh sodjey magh lesh y sheear-ass.

This then was the lot of the tribe of the children of Judah by their families; even to the border of Edom the wilderness of Zin southward was the uttermost part of the south coast.


As va'n chagliagh shiar-ass oc veih oirr yn aarkey-sailjey, veih'n baïe ta lhie lesh y jiass:

And their south border was from the shore of the salt sea, from the bay that looketh southward:


As hie eh magh my-yiass gys Maalehacrabbim, as roie eh er-lhongst gys Zin, as hie eh seose er y cheu jiass gys Kadesh-barnea; goll er y hoshiaght gys Hezron, as seose gys Adar, as ghow eh combaase gys Karkaa:

And it went out to the south side to Maalehacrabbim, and passed along to Zin, and ascended up on the south side unto Kadeshbarnea, and passed along to Hezron, and went up to Adar, and fetched a compass to Karkaa:


Veih shen hie eh lesh Azmon, roshtyn gys awin Egypt; cagleeyn y cheer cheddin va ec yn aarkey. Shoh vees y chagliagh jiass eu.

From thence it passed toward Azmon, and went out unto the river of Egypt; and the goings out of that coast were at the sea: this shall be your south coast.


As va'n faarkey-sailjey choud as beeal Yordan yn chagliagh har. As va'n chagliagh twoaie, veih baïe yn aarkey, ec beeal Yordan:

And the east border was the salt sea, even unto the end of Jordan. And their border in the north quarter was from the bay of the sea at the uttermost part of Jordan:

And the border went up to Bethhogla, and passed along by the north of Betharabah; and the border went up to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben:


As hie'n chagliagh seose lesh Debir veih coan Achor, as myr shen my-hwoaie, lesh Gilgal, ta er y raad seose gys Adummim, ta er cheu-jiass yn awin: as hie'n chagliagh lesh ushtaghyn Enshemesh, as ren eh jerrey ec Enrogel:

And the border went up toward Debir from the valley of Achor, and so northward, looking toward Gilgal, that is before the going up to Adummim, which is on the south side of the river: and the border passed toward the waters of Enshemesh, and the goings out thereof were at Enrogel:


As hie'n chagliagh seose rish coan mac Hinnom, gys cheu-jiass y Jebusite, ta shen Jerusalem: as hie eh seose gys mullagh y clieau erskyn coan Hinnom sheear, ta ec kione-twoaie coan ny foawir:

And the border went up by the valley of the son of Hinnom unto the south side of the Jebusite; the same is Jerusalem: and the border went up to the top of the mountain that lieth before the valley of Hinnom westward, which is at the end of the valley of the giants northward:


As va'n chagliagh tayrnit veih mullagh y chronk gys farrane ushtey Nephtoah, as rosh eh gys ard-valjyn cronk Ephron, as va'n chagliagh er ny hayrn gys Baalah, ta Kirjathjearim:

And the border was drawn from the top of the hill unto the fountain of the water of Nephtoah, and went out to the cities of mount Ephron; and the border was drawn to Baalah, which is Kirjathjearim:


As hie'n chagliagh mygeayrt veih Baalah lesh y sheear gys cronk Seir, as veih shen derrey slyst cronk Jearim (ta Chesalon) er y twoaie, as hie eh sheese gys Beth-shemesh, as veih shen gys Timnah:

And the border compassed from Baalah westward unto mount Seir, and passed along unto the side of mount Jearim, which is Chesalon, on the north side, and went down to Bethshemesh, and passed on to Timnah:


As hie'n chagliagh magh my-hwoaie, gys lhiattee Ekron: as va'n chagliagh er ny hayrn gys Shicron, as roie eh jeeragh magh gys cronk Baalah, as hie eh magh gys Jabneel; as va kione sodjey magh y chagliagh ec yn aarkey.

And the border went out unto the side of Ekron northward: and the border was drawn to Shicron, and passed along to mount Baalah, and went out unto Jabneel; and the goings out of the border were at the sea.


As va'n chagliagh heear gys coast yn aarkey mooar. Shoh ayrn cloan Yudah ooilley mygeayrt, cordail rish nyn gynneeyn.

And the west border was to the great sea, and the coast thereof. This is the coast of the children of Judah round about according to their families.

As ren Othniel mac Kenaz, braar Caleb, goaill eh: as hug eh da Achsah e inneen son ben.

And Othniel the son of Kenaz, the brother of Caleb, took it: and he gave him Achsah his daughter to wife.

And it came to pass, as she came unto him, that she moved him to ask of her father a field: and she lighted off her ass; and Caleb said unto her, What wouldest thou?


As dreggyr ish, Cur dou dty vannaght myr t'ou er choyrt dou thalloo chirrym, cur dou myr-geddin thalloo farraneagh. As hug eh jee ny farraneyn heose as heese.
