The Bible


Ta ny niaughyn fockley magh gloyr Yee: as ta'n aer soilshaghey obbyr e laueyn.

The heavens declare the glory of God: and the firmament sheweth his handywork.


Laa lurg laa te er ny hoilshaghey: as ta oie lurg oie cur toiggal jeh.

One day telleth another: and one night certifieth another.


Cha vel eddyr goan ny glare: raad nagh vel ny coraaghyn oc er nyn glashtyn.

There is neither speech nor language: but their voices are heard among them.


Ta'n sheean oc er gholl magh gys dy chooilley heer: as ny goan oc gys ny ardjyn sodjey magh jeh'n theihll.

Their sound is gone out into all lands: and their words into the ends of the world.


Ayndoo t'eh er hoiaghey cabbane son y ghrian; ta cheet magh myr dooinney-poosee ass e hiamyr, as goaill boggey myr dooinney lajer dy roie e choorse.

In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun: which cometh forth as a bridegroom out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a giant to run his course.


T'eh goll magh veih'n ayrn sodjey jeh'n aer, as goaill combaase mygeayrt ny ardjyn echey reesht: as cha vel nhee erbee follit veih'n chiass echey.

It goeth forth from the uttermost part of the heaven, and runneth about unto the end of it again: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.


Ta leigh yn Chiarn ny leigh gyn-foill, niartaghey yn annym: ta recortyssyn y Chiarn shickyr, as coyrt creenaght da'n vee-hushtagh.

The law of the Lord is an undefiled law, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, and giveth wisdom unto the simple.


Ta slattyssyn y Chiarn jeeragh, as coyrt boggey da'n chree: ta sarey yn Chiarn ynrick, as coyrt soilshey da ny sooillyn.

The statutes of the Lord are right, and rejoice the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, and giveth light to the eyes.


Ta aggle y Chiarn glen, as farraghtyn son dy bragh: ta briwnyssyn y Chiarn firrinagh as cairagh ooilley dy cheilley.

The fear of the Lord is clean, and endureth for ever: the judgements of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether.


Ny smoo t'ad dy v'er nyn yeearree na airh, dy jarroo, na mooarane airh ghlen: ny s'miljey neesht na mill, as y khere-volley.

More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey, and the honey-comb.


Lioroosyn myrgeddin ta dty harvaant ynsit: as ayns freaylley ad ta leagh vooar.

Moreover, by them is thy servant taught: and in keeping of them there is great reward.


Quoi oddys ginsh earroo e loghtyn? O glen mee veih my pheccaghyn follit.

Who can tell how oft he offendeth: O cleanse thou me from my secret faults.


Freill dty harvaant myrgeddin veih peccaghyn dy ghaanys, nagh vow ad barriaght harrym: myr shen bee'm seyr, as gyn loght veih'n peccah trome.

Keep thy servant, also from presumptuous sins, lest they get the dominion over me: so shall I be undefiled, and innocent from the great offence.


Lhig da goan my veeal, as smooinaghtyn my chree: ve dy kinjagh booisal ayns dty hilley

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart: be alway acceptable in thy sight,


O Hiarn: my niart as my Er-kionnee.

O Lord: my strength, and my redeemer.
