The Bible


Bee adsyn ta coyrt nyn dreishteil ayns y Chiarn, dy jarroo myr cronk Sion: Nagh vod v'er ny scughey, agh ta shassoo shickyr er son dy bragh.

They that put their trust in the Lord shall be even as the mount Sion: which may not be removed, but standeth fast for ever.


Myr ta ny croink soit dy cruinn mygeayrt Jerusalem: dy jarroo myr shen ta'n Chiarn mygeayrt e phobble, veih'n traa shoh magh er son dy bragh.

The hills stand about Jerusalem: even so standeth the Lord round about his people, from this time forth for evermore.


Son cha jig lorg ny mee-chrauee er cronney yn vooinjer chairal: son nagh der y sleih cairal nyn laue gys olkys.

For the sceptre of the ungodly shall not abide upon the lot of the righteous: lest the righteous put their hand unto wickedness.


Jean mie, O Hiarn: dauesyn ta mie as firrinagh ayns cree.

Do well, O Lord: unto those that are good and true of heart.


Er son nyn lheid as ta chyndaa reesht gys yn olkys oc hene: leeidee yn Chiarn ad magh marish ny drogh-yantee; agh bee shee er Israel.

As for such as turn back unto their own wickedness: the Lord shall lead them forth with the evil-doers: but peace shall be upon Israel.
