The Bible


Myr shen haink y ree as Haman gys ny cuirraghyn, marish Esther yn ven-rein.

So the king and Haman came to banquet with Esther the queen.


As dooyrt y ree reesht rish Esther er y nah laa, ec y yien-feeyney, Cre ta dty yeearree, ven-rein Esther? as bee eh ayd: as cre ta dty aghin? as bee eh cooilleenit gys eer yn derrey lieh jeh'n reeriaght.

And the king said again unto Esther on the second day at the banquet of wine, What is thy petition, queen Esther? and it shall be granted thee: and what is thy request? and it shall be performed, even to the half of the kingdom.


Eisht dreggyr Esther yn ven-rein, as dooyrt ee, My ta mee er gheddyn foayr ayns dty hilley's, O ree, as my s'gooidsave lesh y ree, lhig da my vioys 've aym er my accan, as my phobble er my aghin.

Then Esther the queen answered and said, If I have found favour in thy sight, O king, and if it please the king, let my life be given me at my petition, and my people at my request:


Son ta shin creckit, mish as my phobble, dy ve stroit, dy ve coyrt gy-baase, as dy herraghtyn: agh dy beagh shin creckit son deiney bondiaght, as mraane bondiaght, cha beign er vosley my veeal, ga nagh voddagh y noid lhiasaghey 'yannoo da'n ree son y coayll.

For we are sold, I and my people, to be destroyed, to be slain, and to perish. But if we had been sold for bondmen and bondwomen, I had held my tongue, although the enemy could not countervail the king's damage.


Eisht dreggyr ree Ahasuerus, as dooyrt eh rish Esther yn ven-rein, Quoi eh-hene? as c'raad t'eh sloys da ayns e chree dy yannoo shoh?

Then the king Ahasuerus answered and said unto Esther the queen, Who is he, and where is he, that durst presume in his heart to do so?


As dooyrt Esther, Yn noid, as y tranlaasagh, yn Haman custey shoh: eisht huitt aggle er Haman fenish y ree as y ven-rein.

And Esther said, The adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman. Then Haman was afraid before the king and the queen.


As dirree yn ree veih'n yien-feeyney ayns e eulys, as hie eh gys garey yn phlaase; as hass Haman seose dy yannoo aghin son e vioys gys Esther yn ven-rein: son honnick eh dy row olk kiarit n'oi liorish y ree.

And the king arising from the banquet of wine in his wrath went into the palace garden: and Haman stood up to make request for his life to Esther the queen; for he saw that there was evil determined against him by the king.


Eisht haink y ree ass garey yn phlaase gys room y yien-feeyney, as va Haman er duittym er y chouch er va Esther ny soie. Eisht dooyrt y ree, Vel eh son goaill er-êgin yn ven-rein myrgeddin roish my hooillyn ayns my hie hene? Cha row yn fockle ny sleaie ass beeal y ree nagh choodee ad eddin Haman.

Then the king returned out of the palace garden into the place of the banquet of wine; and Haman was fallen upon the bed whereon Esther was. Then said the king, Will he force the queen also before me in the house? As the word went out of king's mouth, they covered Haman's face.


As dooyrt Harbonah, fer jeh shamyrderyn y ree, kiongoyrt rish y ree, Cur-my ner ta'n chriy jeh jeih cubityn as da-eed er yrjid, va Haman er hroggal son Mordecai v'er hoilshaghey yn olk va kiarit noi yn ree, ny hassoo roish thie Haman. Eisht dooyrt y ree, Crogh-jee eh-hene er.

And Harbonah, one of the chamberlains, said before the king, Behold also, the gallows fifty cubits high, which Haman had made for Mordecai, who spoken good for the king, standeth in the house of Haman. Then the king said, Hang him thereon.


Myr shen hrogh ad Haman er y chriy v'eh er chiarail son Mordecai. Eisht va jymmoose y ree er ny veeinaghey.

So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king's wrath pacified.
