And Joshua said unto all the people, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time, even Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor: and they served other gods.


As ghow mee nyn ayr Abraham veih'n cheu elley jeh'n awin, as leeid mee eh trooid ooilley cheer Chanaan, as vishee mee yn sluight echey, as hug mee Isaac da.

And I took your father Abraham from the other side of the flood, and led him throughout all the land of Canaan, and multiplied his seed, and gave him Isaac.

As hug mee lhiam ny ayraghyn euish ass Egypt: as haink shiu gys yn aarkey; as hie ny Egyptianee er-eiyrt's nyn ayraghyn lesh fainee as markee gys yn Aarkey-jiarg.

And I brought your fathers out of Egypt: and ye came unto the sea; and the Egyptians pursued after your fathers with chariots and horsemen unto the Red sea.


As tra deïe ad gys y Chiarn, hug eh dorraghys eddyr shiuish as ny Egyptianee, as hug eh lesh yn aarkey orroo, as choodee eh ad; as ta ny sooillyn eu er vakin ny ren mee ayns Egypt: as ren shiu cummal ayns yn aasagh ry-foddey dy hraa.

And when they cried unto the Lord, he put darkness between you and the Egyptians, and brought the sea upon them, and covered them; and your eyes have seen what I have done in Egypt: and ye dwelt in the wilderness a long season.

And I brought you into the land of the Amorites, which dwelt on the other side Jordan; and they fought with you: and I gave them into your hand, that ye might possess their land; and I destroyed them from before you.


Eisht hrog Balak mac Zippor, ree Voab, dy chaggey noi Israel, as hug eh fys er Balaam mac Beor dy ghwee mollaght erriu:

Then Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, arose and warred against Israel, and sent and called Balaam the son of Beor to curse you:


Agh cha jinnin's geaishtagh rish Balaam, shen-y-fa ren eh shiu dy kinjagh y vannaghey: myr shoh ren mee shiu y livrey ass e laue.

But I would not hearken unto Balaam; therefore he blessed you still: so I delivered you out of his hand.

And you went over Jordan, and came unto Jericho: and the men of Jericho fought against you, the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Girgashites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; and I delivered them into your hand.


As hug mec yn pheisteig-nieunagh reue, ren ad y eiyrt magh rhymbiu, eer yn daa ree jeh ny Amoriteyn; agh cha nee lesh y chliwe ayd's, ny lesh dty vhow.

And I sent the hornet before you, which drave them out from before you, even the two kings of the Amorites; but not with thy sword, nor with thy bow.

And I have given you a land for which ye did not labour, and cities which ye built not, and ye dwell in them; of the vineyards and oliveyards which ye planted not do ye eat.

Now therefore fear the Lord, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the Lord.


Agh my te noi nyn aigney dy hirveish yn Chiarn, reih-jee yn laa jiu quoi nee shiu y hirveish; edyr ny jeeghyn ren ny ayraghyn eu shirveish cheu elley jeh'n awin, ny jeeghyn ny Amoriteyn 'sy cheer oc ta shiu cummal: agh er my hon hene as my lught-thie, shirveish mayd y Chiarn.

And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.


As dreggyr y pobble, as dooyrt ad, Ny lhig eh Jee dy dreigagh shin y Chiarn, dy hirveish jeeghyn elley;

And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should forsake the Lord, to serve other gods;

For the Lord our God, he it is that brought us up and our fathers out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and which did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way wherein we went, and among all the people through whom we passed:


As ren y Chiarn geiyrt magh roin ooilley'n pobble, eer ny Amoriteyn cummaltee'n cheer: shen-y-fa nee mayd myrgeddin shirveish y Chiarn; son eshyn y Jee ain.

And the Lord drave out from before us all the people, even the Amorites which dwelt in the land: therefore will we also serve the Lord; for he is our God.


As dooyrt Joshua rish y pobble, Cha vod shiu shirveish y Chiarn: son t'eh ny Yee casherick, t'eh ny Yee eadolagh; cha leih eh diu nyn mee-viallys, ny nyn beccaghyn.

And Joshua said unto the people, Ye cannot serve the Lord: for he is an holy God; he is a jealous God; he will not forgive your transgressions nor your sins.

If ye forsake the Lord, and serve strange gods, then he will turn and do you hurt, and consume you, after that he hath done you good.

Nish er-y-fa shen, (as eshyn,) cur-jee ersooyl ny jeeghyn joarree ta ny mast'eu, as lhig da ny creeaghyn eu lhiantyn gys y Chiarn Jee Israel.

Now therefore put away, said he, the strange gods which are among you, and incline your heart unto the Lord God of Israel.


As dooyrt y pobble rish Joshua, Yn Chiarn y Jee ain nee mayd shirveish, as da e choraa ver mayd biallys.

As ren Joshua ny goan shoh y scrieu ayns lioar leigh Yee, va ayns cabbane-agglish y Chiarn, as ghow eh clagh vooar, as hoie eh seose eh ayns shen fo billey-darragh.

And Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God, and took a great stone, and set it up there under an oak, that was by the sanctuary of the Lord.


As dooyrt Joshua rish ooilley'n pobble, Cur-my-ner bee'n clagh shoh son feanish eddyr shin; son te er chlashtyn ooilley ny goan ta'n Chiarn er loayrt rooin: bee eh er-y-fa shen son feanish diu, nagh jean shiu gobbal yn Jee eu.

And Joshua said unto all the people, Behold, this stone shall be a witness unto us; for it hath heard all the words of the Lord which he spake unto us: it shall be therefore a witness unto you, lest ye deny your God.


Eisht lhig Joshua da'n pobble goll rhymboo, dy chooilley ghooinney gys e eiraght.

So Joshua let the people depart, every man unto his inheritance.
