The Bible

My heart is inditing of a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made unto the King.


Ta my hengey myr fedjag-screeuee: yn scrudeyr tappee.

My tongue is the pen: of a ready writer.


T'ou ny s'aalin na cloan gheiney: lane dy ghrayse ta dty veillyn, er-y-fa dy vel Jee er dty vannaghey son dy bragh.

Thou art fairer than the children of men: full of grace are thy lips, because God hath blessed thee for ever.


Kiangle dty chliwe gys dty lheayst, O uss smoo niartal: cordail rish dty ooashley as dty ghloyr.

Gird thee with thy sword upon thy thigh, O thou most mighty: according to thy worship and renown.

Good luck have thou with thine honour: ride on, because of the word of truth, of meekness, and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.


Ta dty hideyn feer virragh, as bee'n pobble er nyn injillaghey hood's: hed dty hideyn trooid cree noidyn y ree.

Thy arrows are very sharp in the heart of the king's enemies: and the people shall be subdued unto thee.


Ta dty stoyl, O Yee, farraghtyn son dy bragh: ta lorg-reill dty reeriaght lorg reill chairagh.

Thy seat, O God, endureth for ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.

Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity: wherefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.


Ta ooilley dty gharmadyn soaral jeh myrrh, aloes, as cassia: magh ass ny plaaseyn ivory, lhien t'ad er dty yannoo gennal.

All thy garments smell of myrrh, aloes, and cassia: out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.


Va inneenyn reeaghyn mastey dty vraane ooasle: er dty laue yesh hass y ven-reïn ayns coamrey d'airh, obbrit mygeayrt lesh caghlaaghyn daah.

Kings' daughters were among thy honourable women: upon thy right hand doth stand the queen in a vesture of gold, wrought about with divers colours.


Clasht, O inneen, as smooinee ort, croym dty chleaysh: jarrood myrgeddin dty phobble hene, as thie dty ayrey.

Hearken, O daughter, and consider, incline thine ear: forget also thine own people, and thy father's house.

So shall the King have pleasure in thy beauty: for he is thy Lord God, and worship thou him.


As bee inneen Tyre ayns shen lesh gioot: myr nee ny berchee myrgeddin mast yn pobble nyn aghinyn y yannoo kiongoyrt rhyt.

And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift: like as the rich also among the people shall make their supplication before thee.

The King's daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold.

She shall be brought unto the King in raiment of needle-work: the virgins that be her fellows shall bear her company, and shall be brought unto thee.


Lesh boggey as gennallys hig ad mâree: as hed ad stiagh ayns plaase y ree.

With joy and gladness shall they be brought: and shall enter into the King's palace.

Instead of thy fathers thou shalt have children: whom thou mayest make princes in all lands.

I will remember thy Name from one generation to another: therefore shall the people give thanks unto thee, world without end.
