The Bible


Hoods ta mee troggal seose my hooillyn: O uss ta cummal ayns ny niaughyn.

Unto thee lift I up mine eyes: O thou that dwellest in the heavens.


Cur-my-ner, myr ta sooillyn ny fir-vooinjerey jeeaghyn gys laue nyn mainshtyr, as myr ta sooillyn yn inney-veyl gys laue e ben-ainshtyr: dy jarroo myr shen ta ny sooillyn ainyn farkiaght er y Chiarn nyn Yee, derrey nee eh myghin orrin.

Behold, even as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress: even so our eyes wait upon the Lord our God, until he have mercy upon us.


Jean myghin orrin, O Hiarn, jean myghin orrin: son cha vel veg eddyr dy hoiaghey j'in.

Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us: for we are utterly despised.


Ta nyn annym lhieent lesh oltooan craidoilagh ny berchee: as lesh goanlys ny mooaralee.

Our soul is filled with the scornful reproof of the wealthy: and with the despitefulness of the proud.
