The Bible


Dy firrinagh ta Jee graihagh er Israel: dy jarroo er nyn lheid as ta jeh cree glen.

Truly God is loving unto Israel: even unto such as are of a clean heart.


Ny-yeih, va my chassyn faggys er n'gholl voym: va my chesmadyn er-gerrey dy skyrraghtyn.

Nevertheless, my feet were almost gone: my treadings had well-nigh slipt.


As cre'n-oyr? va mee seaghnit er coontey ny mee-chrauee: ta mee myrgeddin fakin drogh 'leih ayns lheid y raah;

And why? I was grieved at the wicked: I do also see the ungodly in such prosperity.


Son cha vel ad ayns gaue erbee jeh'n vaase; agh t'ad trean as lajer.

For they are in no peril of death: but are lusty and strong.


Cha vel ad cheet ayns drogh-haghyrt erbee myr sleih elley: chamoo t'ad er nyn gerraghey myr deiney elley.

They come in no misfortune like other folk: neither are they plagued like other men.


As shoh yn oyr dy vel ad sheidit seose lesh moyrn: as coodit harrish lesh dewlys.

And this is the cause that they are so holden with pride: and overwhelmed with cruelty.


Ta ny sooillyn oc gatt lesh riurid: as t'ad jannoo dy jarroo myr sailliu.

Their eyes swell with fatness: and they do even what they lust.


T'ad mhilley sleih elley, as dy mee-chrauee loayrt goan mollaghtagh: ta'n ghlare oc noi yn Er-syrjey;

They corrupt other, and speak of wicked blasphemy: their talking is against the Most High.


Son t'ad sheeyney magh nyn meeal noi niau: as ta'n chengey oc goll trooid y theihll.

For they stretch forth their mouth unto the heaven: and their tongue goeth through the world.


Shen-y-fa ta'n pobble tuittym lhieu: as cha nee beggan cosney t'ad dy hayrn ass shen.

Therefore fall the people unto them: and thereout suck they no small advantage.


Twish, t'ad gra, Kys ver Jee tastey da: vel fyssyree ayns yn Er-syrjey?

Tush, say they, how should God perceive it: is there knowledge in the Most High?


Jeeagh, ad shoh ny mee-chrauee, ad shoh ta bishaghey ayns y theihll, as oc shoh ta berchys ayns nyn gummal: as dooyrt mee, Eisht ta mish er ghlenney my chree ayns fardail, as er niee my laueyn ayns ?nid.

Lo, these are the ungodly: these prosper in the world, and these have riches in possession: and I said, Then have I cleansed my heart in vain: and washed my hands in innocency.


Fey-ny-laa ta mee er ve er my cherraghey: as er my smaghtaghey dy chooilley voghrey;

All the day long have I been punished: and chastened every morning.


Dy jarroo, as va mee er loayrt faggys myr ren adsyn: agh cur-my-ner, veign eisht er gheyrey sheeloghe dty cloan.

Yea, and I had almost said even as they: but lo, then I should have condemned the generation of thy children.


Eisht ghow mee ayns laue dy hoiggal shoh: agh ve ro ghoillee er my hon,

Then thought I to understand this: but it was too hard for me,


Derrey hie mee stiagh ayns ynnyd casherick Yee: eisht hoig mee jerrey ny deiney shoh;

Until I went into the sanctuary of God: then understood I the end of these men;


Ta shen, Kys t'ou uss dy hoiaghey ad ayns ynnydyn shliawn: as dy hilgey ad sheese, as dy stroie ad.

Namely, how thou dost set them in slippery places: and castest them down, and destroyest them.


Oh, cre cha leah as t'ad goll naardey: cherraghtyn, as cheet gys jerrey agglagh!

Oh, how suddenly do they consume: perish and come to a fearful end!


Dy jarroo, eer myr dreamal tra ta fer doostey: myr shen ver oo er y chaslys oc dy lheïe ersooyl ass yn ard-valley.

Yea, even like as a dream when one awaketh: so shalt thou make their image to vanish out of the city.


Shoh myr va my chree seaghnit: as hie eh eer trooid my veeghyn.

Thus my heart was grieved: and it went even through my reins.


Cha ommijagh shen va mee, as cha mee-hushtagh: dy jarroo myr baagh kiongoyrt rhyt.

So foolish was I, and ignorant: even as it were a beast before thee.


Ny-yeih, ta mee kinjagh liort's: son t'ou er my chummal rish my laue yesh.

Nevertheless, I am alway by thee: for thou hast holden me by my right hand.


Nee oo m'y leeideil lesh dty choyrle: as ny lurg m'y ghoaill gys gloyr.

Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel: and after that receive me with glory.


Quoi t'aym ayns niau agh uss: as cha vel unnane erbee er y thalloo ta mee dy yeearree ayns soylaghey jeed's.

Whom have I in heaven but thee: and there is none upon earth that I desire in comparison of thee.


Ta m'eill as my chree failleil: agh ta Jee niart my chree, as my hoghyr son dy bragh.

My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.


Son cur-my-ner, nee adsyn ta dy dty hreigeil, cherraghtyn: t'ou er stroie adsyn ooilley ta kyndagh jeh maarderys dt'o?.

For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.


Agh te mie er my hon's dy chummal shickyr gys Jee, dy chur my hreishteil ayns y Chiarn Jee: as dy loayrt jeh ooilley dt'obbraghyn ayns giattyn inneen Sion.

But it is good for me to hold me fast by God, to put my trust in the Lord God: and to speak of all thy works in the gates of the daughter of Sion.
