The Bible


Bee uss my vriw, O Hiarn, son ta mee er n'ymmyrkey mee hene gyn loght: ta my varrant neesht er ny ve er y Chiarn, er-y-fa shen cha duittym.

Be thou my Judge, O Lord, for I have walked innocently: my trust hath been also in the Lord, therefore shall I not fall.


Feysht mee, O Hiarn, as prow mee: ronsee my veeghyn as my chree.

Examine me, O Lord, and prove me: try out my reins and my heart.


Son ta dty chenjallys-ghraihagh kinjagh roish my hooillyn; as nee'm gimmeeaght ayns dty irrinys.

For thy loving-kindness is ever before mine eyes: and I will walk in thy truth.


Cha vel mee er vaghey marish sleih foalsey: chamoo nee'm sheshaght rish y vooinjer volteyragh.

I have not dwelt with vain persons: neither will I have fellowship with the deceitful.


Ta feoh er ve aym er chymsagh cooidjagh yn drogh 'leih; as cha soie-ym mastey ny mee-chrauee.

I have hated the congregation of the wicked: and will not sit among the ungodly.


Niee-ym my laueyn ayns ?nid, O Hiarn: as myr shen hem gys dty altar;

I will wash my hands in innocency, O Lord: and so will I go to thine altar;


Dy voddym fockley magh yn coraa dty wooise: as soilshaghey ooilley dty obbraghyn yindyssagh.

That I may shew the voice of thanksgiving: and tell of all thy wondrous works.


Hiarn, ta mee er ve graihagh er cooyrtyn dty hie: as ynnyd cabbane-agglish dty ooashley.

Lord, I have loved the habitation of thy house: and the place where thine honour dwelleth.


O ny jeigh seose m'annym marish ny peccee: ny my vioys marish y vooinjer folley;

O shut not up my soul with the sinners: nor my life with the blood-thirsty;


Ayns ny laueyn oc ta mee-chairys: as ta nyn laue yesh lane dy yiootyn.

In whose hands is wickedness: and their right hand is full of gifts.


Agh er my hon's, nee'm gimmeeaght gyn loght: O livrey mee, as bee myghinagh dou.

But as for me, I will walk innocently: O deliver me, and be merciful unto me.


Ta my chass shassoo dy kiart: ver-ym moylley da'n Chiarn ayns chaglym cooidjagh y pobble.

My feet standeth right: I will praise the Lord in the congregation.
