The Bible


Nish, lurg da Ezra v'er ghoaill padjer, as er ghoaill-rish yn peccah shoh, dobberan, as lhie er y thalloo, kiongoyrt rish thie Yee, haggil huggey ass Israel sheshaght feer vooar dy gheiney, as mraane, as cloan: son ren y pobble keayney dy sharroo.

Now when Ezra had prayed, and when he had confessed, weeping and casting himself down before the house of God, there assembled unto him out of Israel a very great congregation of men and women and children: for the people wept very sore.


As dreggyr Shechaniah mac Jehiel, fer jeh mec Elam, as dooyrt eh rish Ezra, Ta shin er n'yannoo peccah noi'n Jee ain, as er n'ghoaill mraane joarree jeh pobble y cheer: nish ta treishteil foast ayns Israel, mychione y chooish shoh.

And Shechaniah the son of Jehiel, one of the sons of Elam, answered and said unto Ezra, We have trespassed against our God, and have taken strange wives of the people of the land: yet now there is hope in Israel concerning this thing.


Nish er-y-fa shen, lhig dooin conaant y yannoo rish y Jee ain, dy chur ersooyl ooilley ny mraane, as y chloan ta ruggit jeu, cordail rish coyrle my hiarn, as y choyrle ocsyn t'er-creau ec sarey'n Jee ain: as lhig da ve jeant cordail rish y leigh.

Now therefore let us make a covenant with our God to put away all the wives, and such as are born of them, according to the counsel of my lord, and of those that tremble at the commandment of our God; and let it be done according to the law.


Trog ort, son ta'n chooish shoh bentyn dhyt: bee mayd myrgeddin mayrt; bee dunnal, as jean eh.

Arise; for this matter belongeth unto thee: we also will be with thee: be of good courage, and do it.


Eisht dirree Ezra, as hug eh er ny ard-saggyrtyn, ny Leviteyn, as ooilley Israel loo, dy jinnagh ad cordail rish y goo shoh. As ren ad breearrey.

Then arose Ezra, and made the chief priests, the Levites, and all Israel, to swear that they should do according to this word. And they sware.


Eisht dirree Ezra seose kiongoyrt rish thie Yee, as hie eh stiagh ayns shamyr Yohanan mac Eliashib; as tra haink eh gys shen cha d'ee eh arran, chamoo d'iu eh ushtey son ren eh dobberan kyndagh rish drogh-yannoo cloan y chappeeys.

Then Ezra rose up from before the house of God, and went into the chamber of Johanan the son of Eliashib: and when he came thither, he did eat no bread, nor drink water: for he mourned because of the transgression of them that had been carried away.


As ren ad fockley magh order, trooid Judah as Jerusalem, da ooilley cloan y chappeeys, dy haglym ad-hene cooidjagh ec Jerusalem;

And they made proclamation throughout Judah and Jerusalem unto all the children of the captivity, that they should gather themselves together unto Jerusalem;


As quoi-erbee nagh d'arragh cheu-sthie jeh three laa, cordail rish coyrle ny princeyn as y chanstyr, dy beagh ooilley e chooid goit seose, as eh-hene giarit magh veih sheshaght cloan y chappeeys.

And that whosoever would not come within three days, according to the counsel of the princes and the elders, all his substance should be forfeited, and himself separated from the congregation of those that had been carried away.


Eisht haggil ooilley deiney Yudah as Venjamin ad-hene cooidjagh ec Jerusalem, cheu-sthie jeh three laa: ve er y nuyoo vee, as y feedoo laa jeh'n vee, as hoie ooilley'n pobble ayns straid thie Yee, er-creau son y chooish shoh, as son y fliaghey trome.

Then all the men of Judah and Benjamin gathered themselves together unto Jerusalem within three days. It was the ninth month, on the twentieth day of the month; and all the people sat in the street of the house of God, trembling because of this matter, and for the great rain.


As hass Ezra yn saggyrt seose, as dooyrt eh roo, Ta shiu er vrishey'n leigh, liorish goaill mraane joarree, dy vishaghey peccah Israel.

And Ezra the priest stood up, and said unto them, Ye have transgressed, and have taken strange wives, to increase the trespass of Israel.


Nish er-y-fa shen, gow-jee rish nyn beccaghyn gys y Chiarn, Jee nyn ayraghyn, as jean-jee e aigney, as scar-jee shiu hene veih pobble y cheer, as veih mraane joarree.

Now therefore make confession unto the Lord God of your fathers, and do his pleasure: and separate yourselves from the people of the land, and from the strange wives.


Eisht dreggyr ooilley'n cheshaght, as dooyrt ad lesh ard choraa, Myr t'ou er ghra shen myr shegin dooin jannoo.

Then all the congregation answered and said with a loud voice, As thou hast said, so must we do.


Agh ta'n pobble ymmodee, as ta'n emshyr feer fliugh, as cha vel shin abyl shassoo mooie, chamoo ta shoh obbyr laa ny jees, son ta shin ymmodee t'er ny ve kyndagh 'sy chooish shoh.

But the people are many, and it is a time of much rain, and we are not able to stand without, neither is this a work of one day or two: for we are many that have transgressed in this thing.


Lhig da nish fir-reill y slane sheshaght shassoo dy vriwnys, as lhig dauesyn ooilley t'er ghoaill mraane joarree ayns ny ard-valjyn ain cheet ec y traa pointit, as maroosyn shanstyr dy chooilley ard-valley, as ny briwnyn, derrey vees jymmoose hrome y Jee ain son y chooish shoh chynda?t voïn.

Let now our rulers of all the congregation stand, and let all them which have taken strange wives in our cities come at appointed times, and with them the elders of every city, and the judges thereof, until the fierce wrath of our God for this matter be turned from us.


Jonathan mac Asahel, as Jahaziah mac Tikvah, va ny ynrycan briwnyn ayns y chooish shoh; as ren Meshullam as Shabbethai y Levite cooney lhieu.

Only Jonathan the son of Asahel and Jahaziah the son of Tikvah were employed about this matter: and Meshullam and Shabbethai the Levite helped them.


As ren cloan y chappeeys myr shen: as ren Ezra yn saggyrt marish paart jeh'n chanstyr son thie nyn ayraghyn, as dagh unnane oc liorish nyn ennym v'er nyn bointeil, soie sheese er y chied laa jeh'n jeihoo vee dy eysht y chooish.

And the children of the captivity did so. And Ezra the priest, with certain chief of the fathers, after the house of their fathers, and all of them by their names, were separated, and sat down in the first day of the tenth month to examine the matter.


As hug ad jerrey er, roosyn ooilley v'er ghoaill mraane joarree, er y chied laa jeh'n chied vee.

And they made an end with all the men that had taken strange wives by the first day of the first month.

And among the sons of the priests there were found that had taken strange wives: namely, of the sons of Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and his brethren; Maaseiah, and Eliezer, and Jarib, and Gedaliah.


As hug ad nyn laueyn, dy jinnagh ad ersooyl nyn mraane, as myr v'ad oolee, heb ad rea jeh'n chioltane son nyn loght.

And they gave their hands that they would put away their wives; and being guilty, they offered a ram of the flock for their trespass.
