And David assembled all the princes of Israel, the princes of the tribes, and the captains of the companies that ministered to the king by course, and the captains over the thousands, and captains over the hundreds, and the stewards over all the substance and possession of the king, and of his sons, with the officers, and with the mighty men, and with all the valiant men, unto Jerusalem.


Eisht hass David y ree seose, as dooyrt eh, Eaisht-jee rhym, my vraaraghyn, as my phobble, Er my hon's, ve ayns my chree dy hroggal thie dy shickyr son arg conaant y Chiarn, as son stoyl-choshey nyn Yee, as ren mee kiarail ro-laue son yn obbyr:

Then David the king stood up upon his feet, and said, Hear me, my brethren, and my people: As for me, I had in mine heart to build an house of rest for the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and for the footstool of our God, and had made ready for the building:


Agh dooyrt Jee rhym, Cha nee uss nee thie y hroggal son m'ennym's, er-yn-oyr dy vel uss er ny ve dooinney caggee, as er gheayrtey fuill.

But God said unto me, Thou shalt not build an house for my name, because thou hast been a man of war, and hast shed blood.


Ny-yeih, ta'n Chiarn Jee Israel er my reih, roish ooilley thie m'ayrey, dy ve ree harrish Israel son earishyn liauyrey, son t'eh er reih Judah dy ve yn ard tribe; as jeh tribe Yudah, thie m'ayrey: as mastey mec m'ayrey ghow eh taitnys aynyms, dy yannoo mee my ree harrish ooilley Israel:

Howbeit the Lord God of Israel chose me before all the house of my father to be king over Israel for ever: for he hath chosen Judah to be the ruler; and of the house of Judah, the house of my father; and among the sons of my father he liked me to make me king over all Israel:


As jeh ooilley my vec (son ta'n Chiarn er choyrt dou ymmodee mec) t'eh er reih Solomon my vac, dy hoie er stoyl-reeoil reeriaght y Chiarn harrish Israel.

And of all my sons, (for the Lord hath given me many sons,) he hath chosen Solomon my son to sit upon the throne of the kingdom of the Lord over Israel.


As dooyrt eh rhym, Solomon dty vac, eshyn nee troggal my hie as my chooyrtyn: son ta mee er reih eh dy ve my vac, as beem's ayr dasyn.

And he said unto me, Solomon thy son, he shall build my house and my courts: for I have chosen him to be my son, and I will be his father.


As neem's y reeriaght echeysyn y niartaghey son dy bragh, my nee eh tannaghtyn dy chooilleeney my annaghyn, as my vriwnyssyn, myr ec y laa jiu,

Moreover I will establish his kingdom for ever, if he be constant to do my commandments and my judgments, as at this day.


Nish er-y-fa shen ayns shilley ooilley Israel as pobble y Chiarn, as ayns clashtyn y Jee ain, freill-jee as shir-jee lurg ooilley annaghyn y Chiarn y Jee eu: dy vod shiu freayll y cheer mie shoh ayns nyn gummal, as faagail eh son eiraght da nyn gloan nyn yei son earishyn foddey beayn.

Now therefore in the sight of all Israel the congregation of the Lord, and in the audience of our God, keep and seek for all the commandments of the Lord your God: that ye may possess this good land, and leave it for an inheritance for your children after you for ever.


As uss Solomon, my vac, toig aigney Yee dty ayrey, as jean eh y hirveish lesh cree firrinagh, as lesh aigney arryltagh: son ta'n Chiarn ronsaghey magh dy chooilley chree, as toiggal ooilley ny smooinaghtyn t'ayndoo. My t'ou dy hirrey eh, bee eh er ny gheddyn liort; agh my hreig-ys oo eh, nee eh dty hreigeil son dy bragh.

And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the Lord searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.


Cur tastey nish; son ta'n Chiarn er reih oo dy hroggal thie son yn ynnyd casherick: bee creeoil, as jean eh.

Take heed now; for the Lord hath chosen thee to build an house for the sanctuary: be strong, and do it.


Eisht hug David da Solomon e vac pattern jeh porch y chiamble, as jeh ny shamyryn mygeayrt-y-mysh, as jeh ny thieyn-tashtee, as jeh ny shamyryn syrjey, as jeh ny parlaryn cheu-sthie, as jeh ynnyd y stoyl-myghin.

Then David gave to Solomon his son the pattern of the porch, and of the houses thereof, and of the treasuries thereof, and of the upper chambers thereof, and of the inner parlours thereof, and of the place of the mercy seat,


As cummey jeh ooilley ny hug spyrryd Yee roish, jeh cooyrtyn thie'n Chiarn, as jeh ooilley ny shamyryn mygeayrt, jeh ny thieyn-tashtee casherick, as jeh thieyn-tashtee yn chooid chasherick:

And the pattern of all that he had by the spirit, of the courts of the house of the Lord, and of all the chambers round about, of the treasuries of the house of God, and of the treasuries of the dedicated things:


Myrgeddin son coorseyn ny saggyrtyn as ny Leviteyn, as son ooilley obbyr shirveish thie'n Chiarn, as son ooilley siyn y chirveish ayns thie'n Chiarn.

Also for the courses of the priests and the Levites, and for all the work of the service of the house of the Lord, and for all the vessels of service in the house of the Lord.

Even the weight for the candlesticks of gold, and for their lamps of gold, by weight for every candlestick, and for the lamps thereof: and for the candlesticks of silver by weight, both for the candlestick, and also for the lamps thereof, according to the use of every candlestick.


As liorish towse hug eh airh son buird yn arran casherick, son dagh boayrd, as myrgeddin argid son dagh boayrd argid.

And by weight he gave gold for the tables of shewbread, for every table; and likewise silver for the tables of silver:


Airh ghlen myrgeddin son ny aalyn, as ny meilaghyn, as ny cappanyn: as son ny basonyn airh hug eh airh liorish towse son dagh bason, as myrgeddin argid liorish towse son dagh bason argid:

Also pure gold for the fleshhooks, and the bowls, and the cups: and for the golden basons he gave gold by weight for every bason; and likewise silver by weight for every bason of silver:

And for the altar of incense refined gold by weight; and gold for the pattern of the chariot of the cherubims, that spread out their wings, and covered the ark of the covenant of the Lord.


Ooilley shoh dooyrt David, ren y Chiarn soilshaghey dou ayns scrieu lesh e laue marym eer ooilley obbraghyn y pattern shoh.

All this, said David, the Lord made me understand in writing by his hand upon me, even all the works of this pattern.

And David said to Solomon his son, Be strong and of good courage, and do it: fear not, nor be dismayed: for the Lord God, even my God, will be with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee, until thou hast finished all the work for the service of the house of the Lord.


As cur-my-ner, bee coorseyn ny saggyrtyn as ny Leviteyn mayrt son dy chooilley hirveish ayns thie Yee: as bee mayrt son dy chooilley horch dy obbyr, dy chooilley ghooinney schleioil as aggindagh, son dy chooilley horch dy hirveish: bee ny princeyn myrgeddin as ooilley'n pobble dy slane fo dty reill.

And, behold, the courses of the priests and the Levites, even they shall be with thee for all the service of the house of God: and there shall be with thee for all manner of workmanship every willing skilful man, for any manner of service: also the princes and all the people will be wholly at thy commandment.
