The Bible


Nish ayns y nah vee yeig (ta shen yn vee Adar) er y trass laa yeig jeh'n vee cheddin, myr va'n traa tayrn er-gerrey, dy row sarey as decree yn ree dy ve cooilleenit, er y laa va noidyn ny Hewnyn treishteil dy gheddyn barriaght harrystoo, (ga dy row eh kiarit er aght elley, dy row ec ny Hewnyn laue yn eaghtyr harrish nyn noidyn.)

Now in the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar, on the thirteenth day of the same, when the king's commandment and his decree drew near to be put in execution, in the day that the enemies of the Jews hoped to have power over them, (though it was turned to the contrary, that the Jews had rule over them that hated them;)


Haggil ny Hewnyn ad-hene cooidjagh ayns nyn ard-valjyn, trooid magh ooilley rheamyn ree Ahasuerus, dy gholl laue roosyn va son cur mow ad; as cha dod dooinney erbee shassoo roue: son huitt yn aggle oc er dy chooilley phobble.

The Jews gathered themselves together in their cities throughout all the provinces of the king Ahasuerus, to lay hand on such as sought their hurt: and no man could withstand them; for the fear of them fell upon all people.


As ren ooilley fir-reill ny rheamyn, as ny kiannoortyn, as ny briwnyn, as offishearyn y ree, cooney lesh ny Hewnyn: er-yn-oyr dy row aggle Vordecai er duittym orroo.

And all the rulers of the provinces, and the lieutenants, and the deputies, and officers of the king, helped the Jews; because the fear of Mordecai fell upon them.


Son va Mordecai pooaral ayns thie yn ree, as hie goo jeh magh trooid ooilley ny cheeraghyn: son daase y chooilley shoh Mordecai ny smoo as ny smoo.

For Mordecai was great in the king's house, and his fame went out throughout all the provinces: for this man Mordecai waxed greater and greater.


Myr shoh woaill ny Hewnyn ooilley nyn noidyn lesh foyr y chliwe, as lesh cragh, as toyrt-mow, as ren ad cre bailloo rish nyn noidyn.

Thus the Jews smote all their enemies with the stroke of the sword, and slaughter, and destruction, and did what they would unto those that hated them.


As ayns Shushan y phlaase, varr as stroie ny Hewnyn queig cheead dooinney.

And in Shushan the palace the Jews slew and destroyed five hundred men.


As Parshandatha, as Dalphon, as Aspatha,

And Parshandatha, and Dalphon, and Aspatha,


As Poratha, as Adalia, as Aridatha,

And Poratha, and Adalia, and Aridatha,


As Parmashta as Arisai as Aridai, as Vajezatha,

And Parmashta, and Arisai, and Aridai, and Vajezatha,


Jeih mec Haman mac Hammedatha, noid ny Hewnyn, ren ad y varroo; agh er y spooilley cha dug ad nyn laue.

The ten sons of Haman the son of Hammedatha, the enemy of the Jews, slew they; but on the spoil laid they not their hand.


Er y laa shen, va'n earroo ocsyn va stroit ayns Shushan y phlaase, er ny choyrt stiagh gys v ree.

On that day the number of those that were slain in Shushan the palace was brought before the king.


As dooyrt y ree rish Esther yn ven-rein, Ta ny Hewnyn er varroo as er stroie queig cheead dooinney ayns Shushan y phlaase, as jeih mec Haman; cre t'ad er n'yannoo ayns rheamyn elley yn ree? nish cre ta dty accan? as bee eh ayd: as cre sodjey t'ou dy yeearree? as bee eh cooilleenit.

And the king said unto Esther the queen, The Jews have slain and destroyed five hundred men in Shushan the palace, and the ten sons of Haman; what have they done in the rest of the king's provinces? now what is thy petition? and it shall be granted thee: or what is thy request further? and it shall be done.


Eisht dooyrt Esther, My s'gooidsave lesh y ree, lhig da ve lowit da ny Hewnyn t'ayns Shushan dy yannoo mairagh, cordail rish decree yn laa shoh, as lhig da jeih mec Haman ve croghit er y chriy.

Then said Esther, If it please the king, let it be granted to the Jews which are in Shushan to do to morrow also according unto this day's decree, and let Haman's ten sons be hanged upon the gallows.


As doardee yn ree shen dy ve jeant: as haink y decree magh ayns Shushan, as hrogh ad jeih mec Haman.

And the king commanded it so to be done: and the decree was given at Shushan; and they hanged Haman's ten sons.


As haggil ny Hewnyn v'ayns Shushan ad-hene cooidjagh, er y chiarroo laa yeig myrgeddin jeh'n vee Adar, as varr ad three cheead dooinney ayns Shushan: agh er y spooilley cha dug ad laue.

For the Jews that were in Shushan gathered themselves together on the fourteenth day also of the month Adar, and slew three hundred men at Shushan; but on the prey they laid not their hand.


Agh ny Hewnyn elley v'ayns rheamyn y ree, haggil ad ad-hene cooidjagh, as hass ad seose son nyn mioys, as va fea oc veih nyn noidyn, as varr ad jeh nyn noidyn three-feed as queig thousaneyn jeig; agh cha dug ad laue er y spooilley.

But the other Jews that were in the king's provinces gathered themselves together, and stood for their lives, and had rest from their enemies, and slew of their foes seventy and five thousand, but they laid not their hands on the prey,


Er y trass laa yeig jeh'n vee Adar, as er y chiarroo laa yeig jeh'n vee cheddin, ghow ad fea, as ren ad eh laa son cuirraghyn as gien mie.

On the thirteenth day of the month Adar; and on the fourteenth day of the same rested they, and made it a day of feasting and gladness.


Agh haggil ny Hewnyn va ec Shushan cooidjagh er y trass laa yeig as er y chiarroo laa yeig jeh'n vee cheddin, as er y wheiggoo laa yeig ghow ad fea, as ren ad eh laa son cuirraghyn as gennallys.

But the Jews that were at Shushan assembled together on the thirteenth day thereof, and on the fourteenth thereof; and on the fifteenth day of the same they rested, and made it a day of feasting and gladness.


Er shoh ren Hewnyn ny baljyn-cheerey, as cummaltee ny baljyn-foshlit, yn chiarroo laa yeig jeh'n vee Adar, laa son gennallys, as cuirraghyn, as ard feailley, as dy stowal giootyn er y cheilley.

Therefore the Jews of the villages, that dwelt in the unwalled towns, made the fourteenth day of the month Adar a day of gladness and feasting, and a good day, and of sending portions one to another.


As scrieu Mordecai ny reddyn shoh, as hug eh screeunyn gys ooilley ny Hewnyn v'ayns ooilley rheamyn ree Ahasuerus, chammah foddey as gerrit,

And Mordecai wrote these things, and sent letters unto all the Jews that were in all the provinces of the king Ahasuerus, both nigh and far,


Shoh dy gholl myr leigh ny mast' oc, ad dy reayll yn chiarroo laa yeig jeh'n vee Adar, as y wheiggoo laa yeig jeh'n vee cheddin dy chooilley vlein;

To stablish this among them, that they should keep the fourteenth day of the month Adar, and the fifteenth day of the same, yearly,


Son dy dooar ny Hewnyn er ny laghyn shen fea veih nyn noidyn, as dy row yn vee shen er ny hyndaa veih trimshey gys gennallys, as veih dobberan, gys laa bannee: dy yannoo laghyn dy chuirraghyn as gien mie, as dy choyrt giootyn yn derrey yeh gys y jeh elley, as cooney gys ny boghtyn.

As the days wherein the Jews rested from their enemies, and the month which was turned unto them from sorrow to joy, and from mourning into a good day: that they should make them days of feasting and joy, and of sending portions one to another, and gifts to the poor.


As chiare ny Hewnyn dy yannoo myr v'ad er n'ghoaill toshiaght, as myr va Mordecai er scrieu huc.

And the Jews undertook to do as they had begun, and as Mordecai had written unto them;


Er-yn-oyr dy row Haman, mac Hammedatha yn Agagite, ard noid ooilley ny Hewnyn, er chiarail olk noi ny Hewnyn dy stroie ad, as dy row eh er cheau Pur (ta shen yn lot) dy chur mow as dy yiarey ad jeh.

Because Haman the son of Hammedatha, the Agagite, the enemy of all the Jews, had devised against the Jews to destroy them, and had cast Pur, that is, the lot, to consume them, and to destroy them;


Agh tra haink Esther fenish y ree, doardee eh liorish screeunyn, dy beagh yn olk v'eh er chiarail noi ny Hewnyn chyndait er e chione hene, as dy beagh eh-hene as e vec croghit er y chriy.

But when Esther came before the king, he commanded by letters that his wicked device, which he devised against the Jews, should return upon his own head, and that he and his sons should be hanged on the gallows.


Er-y-fa shen, denmys ad ny laghyn shen Purim, lurg ennym Pur, er coontey ooilley focklyn y screeuyn shoh, as shen ny v'ad er n'akin mychione y chooish shoh, as ny va er jeet orroo,

Wherefore they called these days Purim after the name of Pur. Therefore for all the words of this letter, and of that which they had seen concerning this matter, and which had come unto them,


Doardee ny Hewnyn, as ghow ad orroo hene, as er nyn sluight, as er ooilley ny ren lhiantyn huc; nagh lhiggagh ad sheese yn daa laa shoh, dy reayll ad feailley cordail rish yn order, as cordail rish yn traa pointit dy chooilley vlein;

The Jews ordained, and took upon them, and upon their seed, and upon all such as joined themselves unto them, so as it should not fail, that they would keep these two days according to their writing, and according to their appointed time every year;


As dy beagh ny laghyn shoh er nyn vreayll ayns imraa as cooinaghtyn, trooid dy chooilley heeloghe, ayns dy chooilley lught-thie, as dy chooilley rheam, as dy chooilley ard-valley: as nagh row ny laghyn shoh jeh Purim dy ve lhiggit sheese mastey ny Hewnyn, ny yn chooinaghtyn jeu dy herraghtyn veih nyn sluight.

And that these days should be remembered and kept throughout every generation, every family, every province, and every city; and that these days of Purim should not fail from among the Jews, nor the memorial of them perish from their seed.


Eisht scrieu Esther yn ven-rein, inneen Abihail, as Mordecai yn Ew, lesh slane pooar, dy choyrt ayns bree yn screeuyn elley shoh son Purim.

Then Esther the queen, the daughter of Abihail, and Mordecai the Jew, wrote with all authority, to confirm this second letter of Purim.


As hug eh ny screeunyn magh gys ooilley ny Hewnyn v'ayns ny shey-feed as shiaght rheamyn jeh reeriaght Ahasuerus, lesh goan dy hee as dy hickyrys;

And he sent the letters unto all the Jews, to the hundred twenty and seven provinces of the kingdom of Ahasuerus, with words of peace and truth,


Dy reayll ny laghyn shoh jeh Purim, ayns nyn imbagh cooie, myr va Mordecai yn Ew, as Esther yn ven-rein er choyrt currym orroo, as myr v'ad er n'oardaghey er nyn son hene, as son nyn sluight er coontey yn trostey as y dobberan oc.

To confirm these days of Purim in their times appointed, according as Mordecai the Jew and Esther the queen had enjoined them, and as they had decreed for themselves and for their seed, the matters of the fastings and their cry.


As va ny cooishyn shoh mychione Purim jeant mie liorish decree Esther: as ve currit er recort.

And the decree of Esther confirmed these matters of Purim; and it was written in the book.
