The Bible


Tra va mee ayns seaghyn deïe mee gys y Chiarn: as ren eh m'y chlashtyn.

When I was in trouble I called upon the Lord: and he heard me.


Livrey m'annym's, O Hiarn, veih meillyn breagagh: as veih chengey molteyragh.

Deliver my soul, O Lord, from lying lips: and from a deceitful tongue.


Cre'n leagh vees er ny choyrt ny er ny yannoo dhyt's, O hengey oalsey: dy jarroo sideyn lajer as gyere, lesh smarageyn jiarg loshtee.

What reward shall be given or done unto thee, thou false tongue: even mighty and sharp arrows, with hot burning coals.


Smerg dou dy vel mee ?ginit dy chummal mârish Mesech: as dy vel my ynnyd-vaghee mastey cabbaneyn Kedar!

Woe is me, that I am constrained to dwell with Mesech: and to have my habitation among the tents of Kedar.


Ta m'annym's er chummal foddey ny vud ocsyn: ta nyn noidyn da shee.

My soul hath long dwelt among them: that are enemies unto peace.


Ta mee streeu son shee, agh cha vel mee ny-sleaie loayrt roosyn jeh shen: nagh vel ad jannoo ad-hene aarloo gys caggey.

I labour for peace, but when I speak unto them thereof: they make them ready to battle.
