The Bible


Trog-ym seose my hooillyn gys ny croink: vouesyn ta my chooney cheet.

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills: from whence cometh my help?


Ta my chooney cheet dy feer veih'n Chiarn: t'er chroo niau as thalloo.

My help cometh even from the Lord: who hath made heaven and earth


Cha lhig eh da dty chass dy v'er ny scughey: as cha jean eshyn cadley ta dt'endeil.

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: and he that keepeth thee will not sleep.


Cur-my-ner, cha jean eshyn ta freayll Israel: saveenagh ny cadley.

Behold, he that keepeth Israel: shall neither slumber nor sleep.


Ta'n Chiarn hene dty endeilagh: ta'n Chiarn dty niart er dty laue yesh.

The Lord himself is thy keeper: the Lord is thy defence upon thy right hand;


Myr shen nagh jean chiass ny greiney oo y lostey 'sy laa: n'yn eayst 'syn oie.

So that the sun shall not burn thee by day: neither the moon by night.


Nee'n Chiarn uss y choadey veih dy chooilley olk: dy jarroo eshyn eh nee dty annym y reayll.

The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: yea, it is even he that shall keep thy soul.


Freill-ee yn Chiarn dty gholl magh as dty heet stiagh: veih'n traa shoh magh er son dy bragh.

The Lord shall preserve thy going out, and thy coming in: from this time forth for evermore.
