And after certain years he went down to Ahab to Samaria. And Ahab killed sheep and oxen for him in abundance, and for the people that he had with him, and persuaded him to go up with him to Ramothgilead.

Therefore the king of Israel gathered together of prophets four hundred men, and said unto them, Shall we go to Ramothgilead to battle, or shall I forbear? And they said, Go up; for God will deliver it into the king's hand.


Agh dooyrt Jehoshaphat, Nagh vel ayns shoh phadeyr erbee elley lesh y Chiarn, dy vod mayd briaght jeh-syn?

But Jehoshaphat said, Is there not here a prophet of the Lord besides, that we might enquire of him?

As dooyrt Jehoshaphat, Ny lhig da'n ree gra shen.

And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, There is yet one man, by whom we may enquire of the Lord: but I hate him; for he never prophesied good unto me, but always evil: the same is Micaiah the son of Imla. And Jehoshaphat said, Let not the king say so.

As ren ooilley ny phadeyryn phadeyrys er yn aght cheddin, gra, Gow seose noi Ramoth-gilead, as aïgh mie lhiat: son nee'n Chiarn y livrey eh gys laue y ree.

And all the prophets prophesied so, saying, Go up to Ramothgilead, and prosper: for the Lord shall deliver it into the hand of the king.

Eisht haink spyrryd magh, as hass eh kiongoyrt rish y Chiarn, as dooyrt eh, Cleaynee-yms eh. As dooyrt y Chiarn rish, Cre lesh?

Then there came out a spirit, and stood before the Lord, and said, I will entice him. And the Lord said unto him, Wherewith?


As dooyrt eh, Hem's magh, as bee'm my spyrryd breagagh ayns beeal ooilley e adeyryn. As dooyrt y Chiarn, Cleaynee oo eh, as hig eh lhiat myrgeddin: Immee, as jean myr shen.

And he said, I will go out, and be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And the Lord said, Thou shalt entice him, and thou shalt also prevail: go out, and do even so.

Now the king of Syria had commanded the captains of the chariots that were with him, saying, Fight ye not with small or great, save only with the king of Israel.

And it came to pass, when the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat, that they said, It is the king of Israel. Therefore they compassed about him to fight: but Jehoshaphat cried out, and the Lord helped him; and God moved them to depart from him.


Son haink eh gy-kione, tra ghow captanyn ny fainee tastey nagh nee ree Israel v'ayn, dy hyndaa ad back veih chionney er.
