Bannit t'adsyn ooilley ta goaill aggle roish y Chiarn: as ta gimmeeaght ayns e raaidyn.

Blessed are all they that fear the Lord: and walk in his ways.


Son nee oo gee jeh laboraght dty laueyn: O s'mie t'ou, as s'maynrey vees oo.

For thou shalt eat the labours of thine hands: O well is thee, and happy shalt thou be.


Bee dty ven myr y billey-feeyney messoil, er voallaghyn dty hie;

Thy wife shall be as the fruitful vine: upon the walls of thine house.


Dty chloan goll-rish ny banglaneyn olive: mygeayrt-y-mish dty voayrd.

Thy children like the olive-branches: round about thy table.


Cur-my-ner, myr shoh vees y dooinney bannit: ta goaill aggle roish y Chiarn.

Lo, thus shall the man be blessed: that feareth the Lord.


Nee yn Chiarn magh ass Sion myr shen oo y vannaghey: dy vaik oo Jerusalem ayns maynrys ooilley laghyn dty vea;

The Lord from out of Sion shall so bless thee: that thou shalt see Jerusalem in prosperity all thy life long.


Dy jarroo, dy vaik oo cloan dty chlienney: as shee er Israel.

Yea, that thou shalt see thy children's children: and peace upon Israel.
