The Bible


Raaghyn creeney Solomon. Ta mac creeney gerjagh e ayrey; agh ta mac ommijagh trimshey da e voir.

The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother.


Cha vel tashtaghyn mee-chairagh gys veg yn ymmyd: agh ta ynrickys livrey veih baase.

Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death.


Cha lhig y Chiarn da annym yn er-crauee dy gholl naardey: agh t'eh skeayley cooid ny drogh-yantee.

The Lord will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish: but he casteth away the substance of the wicked.

Eshyn ta chaglym 'sy tourey, t'eh ny ghooinney creeney: agh eh ta lhiastey 'syn ouyr, t'eh ny vac naareydagh.

He that gathereth in summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame.


Ta bannaghtyn er kione yn er-cairagh: agh ver tranlaase ny-host beeal ny drogh-yantee.
