The Bible


Caid nee oo my yarrood, O Hiarn, nee son dy bragh? caïd nee oo follaghey dt'eddin voym?

How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord, for ever: how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?


Caïd nee'm coyrle y hirrey ayns m'annym, as ve cha seaghnit ayns my chree; caïd vees my noidyn boggyssagh harrym?

How long shall I seek counsel in my soul, and be so vexed in my heart: how long shall mine enemies triumph over me?


Smooinee orrym, as eaisht rhym, O Hiarn my Yee: soilshee my hooillyn, nagh gadlym ayns baase.

Consider, and hear me, O Lord my God: lighten mine eyes, that I sleep not in death.


Er-aggle dy jir my noid, Ta mee er gheddyn y varriaght er: son my vee'm er my hilgey sheese, nee adsyn ta dy my heaghney boggey 'ghoaill jeh.

Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him: for if I be cast down, they that trouble me will rejoice at it.


Agh ta my hreishteil ayns dty vyghin. as nee my chree boggey 'ghoaill ayns dty haualtys.

But my trust is in thy mercy: and my heart is joyful in thy salvation.


Neem's arrane y ghoaill jeh'n Chiarn, son dy vel eh er ghellal rhym er aght cha graihagh: dy jarroo ver-ym moylley da ennym y Chiarn smoo ard.

I will sing of the Lord, because he hath dealt so lovingly with me: yea, I will praise the Name of the Lord Most Highest.
