The Bible


Va Jotham queig bleeaney as feed d'eash, tra ren eh toshiaght dy reill, as ren eh reill shey bleeaney jeig ayns Jerusalem: va ennym e voir myrgeddin Jerushah, inneen Zadek.

Jotham was twenty and five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem. His mother's name also was Jerushah, the daughter of Zadok.


As ren eh shen ny va cairagh ayns shilley'n Chiarn, cordail rish ooilley ny ren e ayr Uzziah: ny-yeih cha jagh eh stiagh ayns chiamble y Chiarn. As cha row'n pobble foast 'sy raad chair.

And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father Uzziah did: howbeit he entered not into the temple of the Lord. And the people did yet corruptly.


Hrog eh giat ard thie'n Chiarn, as ren eh mooarane obbyr er voalley Ophel.

He built the high gate of the house of the Lord, and on the wall of Ophel he built much.


Hrog eh myrgeddin ard-valjyn ayns sleityn Yudah: as ayns ny keylljyn hrog eh cashtallyn as tooryn.

Moreover he built cities in the mountains of Judah, and in the forests he built castles and towers.


Ren eh caggey myrgeddin rish ree ny Ammoniteyn, as hooar eh yn varriaght orroo. As hrog eh keesh jeh Amnon yn vleïn cheddin, keead talent d'argid, as jeih thousane towse dy churnagh, as jeih thousane dy oarn. Wheesh shoh d'eeck cloan Ammon da, chammah yn nah vleïn as y trass.

He fought also with the king of the Ammonites, and prevailed against them. And the children of Ammon gave him the same year an hundred talents of silver, and ten thousand measures of wheat, and ten thousand of barley. So much did the children of Ammon pay unto him, both the second year, and the third.


Myr shoh haink Jotham dy ve niartal, er-y-fa dy row e raaidyn kiart kiongoyrt rish y Chiarn e Yee.

So Jotham became mighty, because he prepared his ways before the Lord his God.


Nish y chooid elley jeh obbraghyn Yotham as ooilley e chaggaghyn, as e raaidyn, cur-my-ner t'ad scruit ayns hoar reeaghyn Israel as Judah.

Now the rest of the acts of Jotham, and all his wars, and his ways, lo, they are written in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah.


V'eh queig bleeaney as feed d'eash, tra ren eh toshiaght dy reill, as ren eh reill shey bleeaney jeig ayns Jerusalem.

He was five and twenty years old when he began to reign, and reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem.


As chaddil Jotham marish e ayraghyn, as d'oanluck ad eh ayns ard-valley Ghavid: as ren Ahaz e vac reill ayns e ynnyd.

And Jotham slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the city of David: and Ahaz his son reigned in his stead.
