The Bible


Clasht rish my choraa, O Yee ayns my phadjer: freill my vioys veih aggle y noid.

Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.


Follee mee veih chaglym cooidjagh ny mee-viallee: as veih irree-magh ny drogh-yantee

Hide me from the gathering together of the froward: and from the insurrection of wicked doers;


T'er shlieeu nyn jengey myr cliwe: as ta lhiggey nyn sideyn, dy jarroo goan sharroo;

Who have whet their tongue like a sword: and shoot out their arrows, even bitter words;


Dy vod ad dy follit lhiggey ersyn ta firrinagh: t'ad dy woalley eh doaltattym, as cha vel aggle orroo.

That they may privily shoot at him that is perfect: suddenly do they hit him, and fear not.


T'ad jannoo ad-hene daaney ayns olkys as cur nyn goyrle dy cheilley, kys oddys ad ribbaghyn y hoiaghey; as gra, nagh vaik dooinney erbee ad.

They encourage themselves in mischief: and commune among themselves how they may lay snares, and say that no man shall see them.


T'ad smooinaghtyn dy dowin er olkys, as dy chliaghtey eh: shen t'ad dy reayll follit eddyr ad-hene, dy chooilley ghooinney ayns diunid e chree.

They imagine wickedness, and practise it: that they keep secret among themselves, every man in the deep of his heart.


Agh nee Jee lhiggey doaltattym orroo lesh side: dy bee ad dy leah lhottit.

But God shall suddenly shoot at them with a swift arrow: that they shall be wounded.


Dy feer, ver nyn jengaghyn hene orroo tuittym: ayns wheesh as dy jean adsyn ta fakin ad, garaghtee as craid y yannoo jeu.

Yea, their own tongues shall make them fall: insomuch that whoso seeth them shall laugh them to scorn.


As jir dy chooilley ghooinney hee eh, She Jee t'er n'yannoo shoh: son ver ad tastey dy nee eh yn obbyr echeysyn.

And all men that see it shall say, This hath God done: for they shall perceive that it is his work.


Gow-ee yn dooinney cairagh boggey ayns y Chiarn, as ver eh e hreishteil ayn: as nee adsyn ooilley ta firrinagh ayns cree, boggey ghoaill.

The righteous shall rejoice in the Lord, and put his trust in him: and all they that are true of heart shall be glad.
