The Bible


Nish haink eh gy-kione lurg shoh, dy-dooar Nahash ree cloan Ammon baase, as ren e vac reill ny ynnyd.

Now it came to pass after this, that Nahash the king of the children of Ammon died, and his son reigned in his stead.


As dooyrt David, Neem's m'aigney mie y hoilshaghey da Hanun, mac Nahash, er-yn-oyr dy yeeagh e ayr kenjallys dooys. As hug David chaghteryn dy gherjaghey eh son baase e ayrey: eisht haink sharvaantyn Ghavid gys cheer cloan Ammon, gys Hanun, dy gherjaghey eh.

And David said, I will shew kindness unto Hanun the son of Nahash, because his father shewed kindness to me. And David sent messengers to comfort him concerning his father. So the servants of David came into the land of the children of Ammon to Hanun, to comfort him.


Agh dooyrt princeyn cloan Ammon rish Hanun, Vel uss smooinaghtyn dy vel David kiarail onnor da dty ayr ayns coyrt fir-gherjee hood? nagh nee son dy ronsaghey, ry-hoi stroie, as dy scrial magh y cheer ta e haghteryn er jeet?

But the princes of the children of Ammon said to Hanun, Thinkest thou that David doth honour thy father, that he hath sent comforters unto thee? are not his servants come unto thee for to search, and to overthrow, and to spy out the land?


Shen-y-fa ghow Hanun chaghteryn Ghavid, as ren eh baarey ny faasaagyn jeu, as yiare eh ny garmadyn jeu ayns y vean kiart rish nyn gurpyn, as hug eh ad ersooyl.

Wherefore Hanun took David's servants, and shaved them, and cut off their garments in the midst hard by their buttocks, and sent them away.


Eisht ve er ny insh da David, kys va ny deiney shirveishit: as chur eh chaghteryn ny whail oc, (son va lane nearey er ny deiney). As dooyrt y ree, Fuirree-jee ec Jericho derrey vees ny faasaagyn eu er n'aase, as eisht tar-jee hym's.

Then there went certain, and told David how the men were served. And he sent to meet them: for the men were greatly ashamed. And the king said, Tarry at Jericho until your beards be grown, and then return.


As tra dennee cloan Ammon dy row ad dy mooar er vrasnaghey David, hug Hanun as cloan Ammon thousane talent dy argid dy ailley daue fainee as markee veih Mesopotamia, as veih Syria-maachah, as veih Zobah.

And when the children of Ammon saw that they had made themselves odious to David, Hanun and the children of Ammon sent a thousand talents of silver to hire them chariots and horsemen out of Mesopotamia, and out of Syriamaachah, and out of Zobah.


Myr shen d'aill ad daa housane jeig as feed dy gheiney, marish fainee, as ree Maachah as e phobble, haink as ren campal roish Medeba. As haggil cloan Ammon ad-hene cooidjagh veih nyn ard-valjyn, as ghow ad y magher-caggee.

So they hired thirty and two thousand chariots, and the king of Maachah and his people; who came and pitched before Medeba. And the children of Ammon gathered themselves together from their cities, and came to battle.


As tra cheayll David jeh, hug eh magh Joab, as ooilley ny deiney niartal caggee marish.

And when David heard of it, he sent Joab, and all the host of the mighty men.


As haink cloan Ammon magh, as hayrn ad seose ayns order caggee kiongoyrt rish giat yn ard-valley: as va ny reeaghyn haink dy chooney lhieu, er-lheh orroo hene 'sy vagher.

And the children of Ammon came out, and put the battle in array before the gate of the city: and the kings that were come were by themselves in the field.


Nish tra honnick Joab dy row'n caggey n'oï, roish as ny yei, hayrn eh magh ooilley reih deiney Israel, as hug eh ad ayns order-caggee noi ny Syrianee.

Now when Joab saw that the battle was set against him before and behind, he chose out of all the choice of Israel, and put them in array against the Syrians.


As y chooid elley jeh'n pobble, hug eh fo currym Abishai e vraar, dy chur eddin da cloan Ammon.

And the rest of the people he delivered unto the hand of Abishai his brother, and they set themselves in array against the children of Ammon.


As dooyrt eh, My ta ny Syrianee ro lajer er my hon, eisht nee uss cooney lhiam's; agh my ta cloan Ammon ro lajer er dty hon's, eisht neem's cooney lhiat's.

And he said, If the Syrians be too strong for me, then thou shalt help me: but if the children of Ammon be too strong for thee, then I will help thee.


Bee jeh cree mie, as lhig dooin caggey myr deiney dunnal, son y pobble ain, as son ard-valjyn nyn Yee: as lhig da'n Chiarn jannoo shen ny ta mie ayns e hilley.

Be of good courage, and let us behave ourselves valiantly for our people, and for the cities of our God: and let the Lord do that which is good in his sight.


Myr shen hayrn Joab as y pobble va mârish, er-gerrey dy chaggey noi ny Syrianee, as roie ad er-chea kiongoyrt rish.

So Joab and the people that were with him drew nigh before the Syrians unto the battle; and they fled before him.


As tra honnick cloan Ammon dy row ny Syrianee er choyrt cooyl, hyndaa adsyn myrgeddin roish Abishai e vraar, as hie ad stiagh gys yn ard-valley. Eisht haink Joab gys Jerusalem.

And when the children of Ammon saw that the Syrians were fled, they likewise fled before Abishai his brother, and entered into the city. Then Joab came to Jerusalem.


As tra honnick ny Syrianee dy dug Israel y chooid smessey daue, hug ad chaghteryn, as hayrn ad magh ny Syrianee va cheu elley jeh'n awin: as va Shophach, captan sheshaght-caggee Hadarezer, er y chione oc.

And when the Syrians saw that they were put to the worse before Israel, they sent messengers, and drew forth the Syrians that were beyond the river: and Shophach the captain of the host of Hadarezer went before them.


As ve inshit da David: as haggil eh ooilley Israel, as hie eh harrish Jordan, as haink eh orroo, as hug eh yn cheshaght ayns order-caggee nyn 'oï, as tra va David er n'yannoo shoh, ren ny Syrianee caggey rish.

And it was told David; and he gathered all Israel, and passed over Jordan, and came upon them, and set the battle in array against them. So when David had put the battle in array against the Syrians, they fought with him.


Agh roie ny Syrianee er-chea roish Israel; as varr David jeh ny Syrianee shiaght thousaneyn dy gheiney fainagh, as da-eed thousane coshee, as varr eh Shophach captan y cheshaght-chaggee.

But the Syrians fled before Israel; and David slew of the Syrians seven thousand men which fought in chariots, and forty thousand footmen, and killed Shophach the captain of the host.


As tra honnick deiney Hadarezer, dy row'n varriaght ec Israel, ren ad shee rish David, as haink ad dy ve fo e reill: chamoo by-loys da ny Syrianee dy chooney lesh cloan Ammon ny sodjey.

And when the servants of Hadarezer saw that they were put to the worse before Israel, they made peace with David, and became his servants: neither would the Syrians help the children of Ammon any more.
