Also that day they offered great sacrifices, and rejoiced: for God had made them rejoice with great joy: the wives also and the children rejoiced: so that the joy of Jerusalem was heard even afar off.


Ec y traa shen, va paart pointit harrish ny shamyryn, son ny tashtaghyn, son ny chebballyn, son ny chied-vessyn, as son ny jagheenyn, dy haglym stiagh ayndoo ass magheryn ny ard-valjyn, ny keeshyn cordail rish y leigh, da ny saggyrtyn as Leviteyn: son ghow Judah boggey jeh ny saggyrtyn as Leviteyn ny shirveishee.

And at that time were some appointed over the chambers for the treasures, for the offerings, for the firstfruits, and for the tithes, to gather into them out of the fields of the cities the portions of the law for the priests and Levites: for Judah rejoiced for the priests and for the Levites that waited.

And both the singers and the porters kept the ward of their God, and the ward of the purification, according to the commandment of David, and of Solomon his son.


Son ayns laghyn Ghavid as Asaph 'sy chenn earish, va mainshtyryn harrish ny fir-chiaullee, ayns ny arraneyn oc dy voylley as toyrt-booise gys Jee.

For in the days of David and Asaph of old there were chief of the singers, and songs of praise and thanksgiving unto God.
