The Bible


Er yn oie shen cha daink cadley er y ree, as doardee eh lioar recortyssyn y reeriaght dy ve er ny choyrt, lesh huggey, as v'ad lhaiht ayns clashtyn y ree.

On that night could not the king sleep, and he commanded to bring the book of records of the chronicles; and they were read before the king.


As ve er ny gheddyn scruit, dy row Mordecai er hoilshaghey mychione Bigthana as Teresh, jees jeh shamyrderyn y ree, va currym y dorrys orroo, hug nyn goyrle dy cheilley dy chur ree Ahasuerus gy-baase.

And it was found written, that Mordecai had told of Bigthana and Teresh, two of the king's chamberlains, the keepers of the door, who sought to lay hand on the king Ahasuerus.


As dooyrt y ree, Lesh cre'n ooashley as onnor ta Mordecai er ny ve cooilleenit son shoh? Eisht dooyrt fir-oik y ree va mygeayrt-y-mysh, Cha vel veg jeant er e hon.

And the king said, What honour and dignity hath been done to Mordecai for this? Then said the king's servants that ministered unto him, There is nothing done for him.


As dooyrt y ree, Quoi t'ayns y chooyrt? (nish va Haman er jeet gys y chooyrt mooie jeh thie yn ree, dy loayrt rish y ree, son Mordecai dy ve croghit er y chriy v'eh er chiarail ny chour.

And the king said, Who is in the court? Now Haman was come into the outward court of the king's house, to speak unto the king to hang Mordecai on the gallows that he had prepared for him.


As dooyrt fir-oik y ree rish, Cur-my-ner ta Haman ny hassoo 'sy chooyrt. As dooyrt y ree, Lhig da cheet stiagh.

And the king's servants said unto him, Behold, Haman standeth in the court. And the king said, Let him come in.


Er shoh haink Haman stiagh: as dooyrt y ree rish, Cre vees jeant rish y dooinney, s'gooidsave lesh y ree dy hroggal gys y stayd smoo dy ard-ooashley? (nish smooinee Haman ayns e chree, Quoi ayns smoo ghoghe y ree taitnys dy hroggal gys ard-ooashley syrjey na mee hene?)

So Haman came in. And the king said unto him, What shall be done unto the man whom the king delighteth to honour? Now Haman thought in his heart, To whom would the king delight to do honour more than to myself?


As dreggyr Haman y ree, Da'n dooinney ta'n ree aggindagh dy hoilshaghey yn onnor shoh,

And Haman answered the king, For the man whom the king delighteth to honour,


Lhig da'n coamrey reeoil, lheid as ta'n ree cliaghtey ceau, ve er ny choyrt lesh, as cabbyl-markiagh y ree, as y crown reeoil t'er e chione:

Let the royal apparel be brought which the king useth to wear, and the horse that the king rideth upon, and the crown royal which is set upon his head:


As lhig da'n coamrey shoh, as y cabbyl ve livreit da fer jeh princeyn s'ooasle y ree, dy choamrey yn dooinney lesh, ayn ta'n ree er ghoaill taitnys dy hroggal gys yn ard-ooashley shoh, as cur-jee lhieu eh markiagh trooid straidyn yn ard-valley, as fockley magh roishyn, Shoh myr vees jeant son y dooinney s'gooidsave lesh y ree dy choamrey lesh ooashley.

And let this apparel and horse be delivered to the hand of one of the king's most noble princes, that they may array the man withal whom the king delighteth to honour, and bring him on horseback through the street of the city, and proclaim before him, Thus shall it be done to the man whom the king delighteth to honour.


Eisht dooyrt y ree rish Haman, Jean siyr, as gow yn coamrey, as y cabbyl, myr t'ou hene er ghra, as jean eer myr shoh rish Mordecai yn Ew, ta ny hoie ec giat y ree: ny lhig da veg ve faagit gyn jannoo jeh ny t'ou er ghra.

Then the king said to Haman, Make haste, and take the apparel and the horse, as thou hast said, and do even so to Mordecai the Jew, that sitteth at the king's gate: let nothing fail of all that thou hast spoken.


Eisht ghow Haman yn coamrey as y cabbyl, as choamree eh Mordecai, as hug eh lesh eh er mooin chabbyl trooid straidyn yn ard-valley, as ren eh fockley magh roish, Myr shoh vees eh jeant rish y dooinney, ayn ta'n ree goaill taitnys dy hroggal yn ard-ooashley shoh.

Then took Haman the apparel and the horse, and arrayed Mordecai, and brought him on horseback through the street of the city, and proclaimed before him, Thus shall it be done unto the man whom the king delighteth to honour.


As haink Mordecai reesht gys giat y ree: agh ren Haman siyr gys e hie, dobberan, as lesh e chione coodit.

And Mordecai came again to the king's gate. But Haman hasted to his house mourning, and having his head covered.


As dinsh Haman da Zeresh e ven, as da ooilley e chaarjyn, dy chooilley nhee v'er daghyrt da. Eisht dooyrt e gheiney creeney, as Zeresh e ven, rish, My ta Mordecai jeh sluight ny Hewnyn, roishyn t'ou er n'yannoo toshiaght dy huittym, cha vod oo cosney er, agh tuittee oo son shickyrys fosyn.

And Haman told Zeresh his wife and all his friends every thing that had befallen him. Then said his wise men and Zeresh his wife unto him, If Mordecai be of the seed of the Jews, before whom thou hast begun to fall, thou shalt not prevail against him, but shalt surely fall before him.


As choud as v'ad foast loayrt rish, haink shamyrderyn y ree, as ayns siyr dy chur lhieu Haman gys ny cuirraghyn va Esther er gheddyn aarloo.

And while they were yet talking with him, came the king's chamberlains, and hasted to bring Haman unto the banquet that Esther had prepared.
