The Bible


Bannit ta'n dooinney ta goaill aggle roish y Chiarn: ta taitnys mooar echey ayns e annaghyn.

Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord: He hath great delight in his commandments.


Bee yn sluight echey niartal er y thalloo: bee bannaght cour yn vooinjer ynrick.

His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the faithful shall be blessed.


Bee berchys as palchey ayns e hie: as nee e chairys farraghtyn son dy bragh.

Riches and plenteousness shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.


Da'n dooinney crauee ta soilshey brishey magh ayns y dorraghys: t'eh myghinagh, graihagh, as cairagh.

Unto the godly there ariseth up light in the darkness: he is merciful, loving, and righteous.


Ta dooinney mie erreeishagh, as coyrt er eeasaght: as nee eh e ghlare y reill lesh tushtey.

A good man is merciful, and lendeth: and will guide his words with discretion.


Son cha bee eh dy bragh er ny scughey: as bee'n dooinney ynrick freilt ayns cooinaghtyn er son dy bragh.

For he shall never be moved: and the righteous shall be had in everlasting remembrance.


Cha bee eh agglagh jeh drogh naight erbee: son ta e chree shassoo shickyr, as credjal ayns y Chiarn.

He will not be afraid of any evil tidings: for his heart standeth fast, and believeth in the Lord.


Ta e chree er ny hickyraghey, as cha vaill eh: derrey hee eh e aigney er e noidyn.

His heart is established, and will not shrink: until he see his desire upon his enemies.


T'eh er skeayley dy lhean, as er choyrt da ny boghtyn: as ta e chairys farraghtyn son dy bragh; bee'n ennym echey er ny hoiaghey seose lesh ooashley.

He hath dispersed abroad, and given to the poor: and his righteousness remaineth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.


Hee yn mee-chrauee eh, as bee eh trimshey da: nee eh snaggeraght lesh e eeacklyn, as lheïe ersooyl; nee yeearree yn vooinjer vee-chrauee cherraghtyn.

The ungodly shall see it, and it shall grieve him: he shall gnash with his teeth, and consume away; the desire of the ungodly shall perish.
