The Bible


Yn Chiarn my hoilshey as my haualtys; quoi roish eisht ghoym aggle: yn Chiarn niart my vea; quoi roish eisht vee'm agglagh?

The Lord is my light, and my salvation; whom then shall I fear: the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom then shall I be afraid?


Tra haink ny olkyssee, dy jarroo my noidyn as my hranlaasee orrym dy my stroie: ren ad snapperal as tuittym.

When the wicked, even mine enemies, and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh: they stumbled and fell.


Ga dy beagh sheshaght-caggee dy gheiney soit m'oï, foast cha bee my chree agglagh: as ga dy jinnagh caggey girree seose m'oï, foast ver-ym my varrant ersyn.

Though an host of men were laid against me, yet shall not my heart be afraid: and though there rose up war against me, yet will I put my trust in him.


Un red ta mish er hirrey er y Chiarn, shen nee'm y yeearree: dy jarroo dy voddym baghey ayns thie yn Chiarn ooilley laghyn my vea, dy akin aalid eunyssagh y Chiarn, as dy haaghey e hiamble.

One thing have I desired of the Lord, which I will require: even that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the fair beauty of the Lord, and to visit his temple.


Son ayns traa my heaghyn follee eh mee ayns e chabbane; dy jarroo ayns boayl keillit e ynnyd-vaghee nee eh m'y ollaghey, as m'y hoiaghey seose er creg chloaie.

For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his tabernacle: yea, in the secret place of his dwelling shall he hide me, and set me up upon a rock of stone.


As nish troggee eh seose my chione: erskyn my noidyn mygeayrt-y-moom.

And now shall he lift up mine head: above mine enemies round about me.


Shen-y-fa neem's oural y hebbal ayns e ynnyd casherick lesh ard-ghennallys: nee'm arrane y ghoaill, as soilshaghey magh moylley yn Chiarn.

Therefore will I offer in his dwelling an oblation with great gladness: I will sing, and speak praises unto the Lord.


Eaisht rish my choraa, O Hiarn, tra ta mee geamagh hood's: jean myghin orrym, as clasht rhym.

Hearken unto my voice, O Lord, when I cry unto thee: have mercy upon me, and hear me.


Ta my chree er yannoo imraa jeed's; Shirr-jee my eddin: Dt' eddin, Hiarn, neem's y hirrey.

My heart hath talked with thee: Seek ye my face; Thy face, Lord, will I seek.


O ny follee dty eddin voym: chamoo jean dty harvaant y hyndaa ersooyl ayns jymmoose.

O hide not thou thy face from me: nor cast thy servant away in displeasure.


T'ou er ny ve my chemmyrk: ny faag mee, chamoo jean m'y hreigeil, O Yee my haualtys.

Thou hast been my succour: leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.


Tra ta my ayr as my voir dy my hreigeil, ta'n Chiarn dy my ghoaill seose.

When my father and my mother forsake me: the Lord taketh me up.


Ynsee dooys dty raad, O Hiarn: as leeid mee ayns y raad cair, kyndagh rish my noidyn.

Teach me thy way, O Lord: and lead me in the right way, because of mine enemies.


Ny livrey mee seose gys aigney my noidyn: son ta feanishyn foalsey er n'irree seose m'oï, as lheid as ta loayrt aggair.

Deliver me not over into the will of mine adversaries: for there are false witnesses risen up against me, and such as speak wrong.


Va mee dy bollagh er choayl my chree: agh dy vel mee dy shickyr credjal dy akin kenjallys y Chiarn ayns cheer ny bioee.

I should utterly have fainted: but that I believe verily to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.


O jean uss farkiaght er caa yn Chiarn; bee dunnal, as nee eh gerjaghey dty chree, as cur uss dty hreishteil ayns y Chiarn.

O tarry thou the Lord's leisure: be strong, and he shall comfort thine heart; and put thou thy trust in the Lord.
