The Bible


O bee-jee gerjoil ayns Jee, ooilley shiuish cheeraghyn: gow-jee arraneyn-moyllee gys onnor e Ennym; cur-jee er e voylley dy ve gloyroil.

O be joyful in God, all ye lands: sing praises unto the honour of his Name, make his praise to be glorious.


Abbyr-jee rish Jee, O cre cha yindyssagh as t'ou ayns dt 'obbraghyn: trooid mooadys dty phooar vees dty noidyn er nyn gheddyn nyn mreageryn ayns dty enish.

Say unto God, O how wonderful art thou in thy works: through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies be found liars unto thee.


Son nee ooilley yn seihll ooashley 'chur dhyt: goaill arrane jeed, as moylley dt' Ennym.

For all the world shall worship thee: sing of thee, and praise thy Name.


O tar-jee ayns shoh, as cur-jee tastey da obbraghyn Yee: cre cha yindyssagh as t'eh ayns e yannoo gys cloan gheiney!

O come hither, and behold the works of God: how wonderful he is in his doing towards the children of men.


Hyndaa eh yn faarkey gys thalloo chirrym: myr shen dy jagh ad trooid yn ushtey rish nyn gosh; ayns shen ghow shin boggey jeh.

He turned the sea into dry land: so that they went through the water on foot; there did we rejoice thereof.


T'eh reill lesh e phooar son dy bragh; ta e hooillyn cur tastey da'n pobble: as ny lheid as nagh jean credjal, cha bee abyl adhene y hoiaghey seose,

He ruleth with his power for ever; his eyes behold the people: and such as will not believe shall not be able to exalt themselves.


O cur-jee moylley da'n Jee ain, shiuish phobble: as cur-jee er coraa e voylley dy ve er ny chlashtyn

O praise our God, ye peoples: and make the voice of his praise to be heard;


Ta freayll yn annym ain ayns bioys: as nagh vel lhiggey da nyn gassyn dy skyrraghtyn,

Who holdeth our soul in life: and suffereth not our feet to slip.


Son t'ou uss, O Yee, er phrowal shin: t'ou myrgeddin er hrial shin, myr ta argid er ny hrial.

For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou also hast tried us, like as silver is tried.


Hug oo lhiat shiu ayns y ribbey: as hug oo seaghyn er nyn meeghyn.

Thou broughtest us into the snare: and laidest trouble upon our loins.


Lhig oo da deiney dy varkiagh harrish nyn ghing: hie shin trooid aile as ushtey, as hug oo lhiat shin magh gys ynnyd berchagh.

Thou sufferedest men to ride over our heads: we went through fire and water, and thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.


Hem stiagh gys dty hie lesh chebballyn-losht: as eeck-ym dhyt my vraaraghyn yiall mee lesh my veillyn, as loayr mee lesh my veeal, tra va mee ayns seaghyn.

I will go into thine house with burnt-offerings: and will pay thee my vows, which I promised with my lips, and spake with my mouth, when I was in trouble.


Cheb-yms dhyt ourallyn-losht roauyrey, marish oural-millish reaghyn: cheb-ym dew as goair.

I will offer unto thee fat burnt-sacrifices, with the incense of rams: I will offer bullocks and goats.


O tar-jee ayns shoh as eaisht-jee, ooilley shiuish ta goaill aggle roish Jee: as insh-ym diu cre t'eh er n'yannoo son m'annym.

O come hither, and hearken, all ye that fear God: and I will tell you what he hath done for my soul,


Deïe mee er lesh my veeal: as hug mee moylley da lesh my hengey.

I called unto him with my mouth: and gave him praises with my tongue.


My ta my chree goaill taitnys ayns mee-chairys: cha jean y Chiarn m'y chlashtyn.

If I incline unto wickedness with mine heart: the Lord will not hear me.


Agh ta Jee er my chlashtyn: as er choyrt tastey da coraa my phadjer.

But God hath heard me: and considered the voice of my prayer.


Moylley dy row gys Jee, nagh vel er hoiaghey beg jeh my phadjer: ny er hyndaa e vyghin voym.

Praised be God, who hath not cast out my prayer: nor turned his mercy from me.
