The Bible


Moylley-jee yn Chiarn, shiuish e harvaantyn: O moylley-jee Ennym y Chiarn.

Praise the Lord, ye servants: O praise the Name of the Lord.


Bannit dy row Ennym y Chiarn: veih'n traa shoh magh er son dy bragh.

Blessed be the Name of the Lord: from this time forth for evermore.


Ta Ennym y Chiarn er ny voylley: veih irree gys lhie ny greïney.

The Lord's Name is praised: from the rising up of the sun until the going down of the same.


Ta'n Chiarn ard erskyn dy chooilley ashoon: as ta e ghloyr erskyn ny niaughyn.

The Lord is high above all nations: and his glory above the heavens.


Quoi ta casley rish y Chiarn y Jee ain, ta e ynnyd-vaghee cha ard: as ny-yeih t'eh ginjillaghey eh-hene dy chur-my-ner ny reddyn t ayns niau as er y thalloo?

Who is like the Lord our God, that hath his dwelling so high: and yet humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven and earth?


T'eh goaill seose yn fer imlee ass y joan as troggal yn ymmyrchagh veih'n thorran;

He taketh up the simple out of the dust: and lifteth the poor out of the mire;


Dy vod eh eshyn y hoiaghey seose mastey ny princeyn e pobble.

That he may set him with the princes: even with the princes of his people.


T'eh cur er y ven ghennish dy reayll thie: as dy ve ny moir ghennal dy chloan.

He maketh the barren woman to keep house: and to be a joyful mother of children.
