The Bible


Cooin lhiam, Hiarn, son cha vel un dooinney crauee faagit: son cha vel y vooinjer ynrick agh goan mastey cloan gheiney.

Help me, Lord, for there is not one godly man left: for the faithful are minished from among the children of men.


T'ad taggloo jeh fardail dagh unnane rish e naboo: cha vel ad agh brynneraght lesh nyn meillyn, as jannoo molteyrys ayns nyn gree dooble.

They talk of vanity everyone with his neighbour: they do but flatter with their lips, and dissemble in their double heart.


Ver y Chiarn mow ooilley ny meillyn molteyragh: as y chengey ta loayrt goan mooaralagh;

The Lord shall root out all deceitful lips: and the tongue that speaketh proud things;


Adsyn ta er ghra, Lesh nyn jengey yiow mayd barriaght; shin hene lhisagh loayrt; quoi ta ny hiarn harrin?

Which have said, With our tongue will we prevail: we are they that ought to speak, who is lord over us?


Nish er graih seaghyn vee-gherjoil ny ymmyrchee: as er son osnaghyn trommey ny boghtyn:

Now for the comfortless troubles' sake of the needy: and because of the deep sighing of the poor,


Trog-ym orrym ta'n Chiarn dy ghra; as ver-ym feaysley da dagh unnane veih-syn ta gatt n'oï, as ver-ym eh gys fea.

I will up, saith the Lord: and will help every one from him that swelleth against him, and will set him at rest.


Ta goan y Chiarn goan glen: dy jarroo myr yn argid, ta er ny ghlenney veih'n ooir, as er ny lheïe shiaght keayrtyn ayns yn aile.

The words of the Lord are pure words: even as the silver, which from the earth is tried, and purified seven times in the fire.


Nee oo ad y reaylley, O Hiarn: nee oo adsyn y choadey veih'n sheeloghe shoh son dy bragh.

Thou shalt keep them, O Lord: thou shalt preserve him from this generation for ever.


Ta ny mee-chrauee gimmeeaght er dy chooilley heu: tra t'adsyn er nyn soiaghey seose, ta cloan gheiney er nyn goyrt fo-chosh.

The ungodly walk on every side: when they are exalted, the children of men are put to rebuke.
