Whoso loveth instruction loveth knowledge: but he that hateth reproof is brutish.

A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the root of the righteous shall not be moved.


Ta ben vie myr attey aalin da'n sheshey eck: agh ish ta tayrn nearey er, t'ee myr loauid ayns e chraueyn.

A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.


Ta smooinaghtyn y dooinney ynrick cairal: agh ta coyrleyn ny mee-chrauee son molteyrys.

The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceit.

The words of the wicked are to lie in wait for blood: but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.


Ta ny mee-chrauee giarit jeh, as cha vel arragh jeu: agh nee thie yn vooinjer ynrick shassoo.

The wicked are overthrown, and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand.


Yiow dooinney moylley rere e chreenaght: agh bee eshyn ta jeh cree mitchooragh beg soit jeh.

A man shall be commended according to his wisdom: but he that is of a perverse heart shall be despised.


Ny share ta eshyn, ta ayns stayd injil, as son cooney lesh hene, na eshyn ta moyrnagh jeh hene, as laccal arran.

He that is despised, and hath a servant, is better than he that honoureth himself, and lacketh bread.


Ta dooinney myghinagh soiaghey mooar jeh bioys e vaagh: agh ta myghinyn meiygh ny mee-chrauee dewilys

Bee eshyn ta laboragh e halloo jeant-magh lesh arran agh eshyn ta taaghey marish stroialtee, t'eh laccal tushtey.

The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble.


Bee dooinney jeant magh lesh mieys, liorish mess e veeal, as rere obbyr e laueyn bee dooinney cooilleenit

A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth: and the recompence of a man's hands shall be rendered unto him.


Ta raad ommydan jeeragh ayns e hooillyn hene; agh t'eshyn creeney eaishtys rish coyrle.

A fool's wrath is presently known: but a prudent man covereth shame.


Eshyn ta loayrt yn irriney, t'eh soilshaghey cairys; agh feanish foalsey, molteyraght.

He that speaketh truth sheweth forth righteousness: but a false witness deceit.

There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.


Bee meillyn ny firriney er ny hickyraghey son dy bragh: agh cha vel chengey vreagagh agh son tullogh.

The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment.

Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad.


Ta'n dooinney cairal ny s'ooasle na e naboo: agh ta raad ny mee-chrauee cur ad er-shaghryn.

The righteous is more excellent than his neighbour: but the way of the wicked seduceth them.


Cha vel yn er-liastey gaarlagh shen, ghow eh ayns shelg: agh ta cooid dooinney frioosagh bannaght da.

The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting: but the substance of a diligent man is precious.


Ayns raad yn ynrickys ta bea, as ayns y chassan shen cha vel nhee baasoil erbee.

In the way of righteousness is life: and in the pathway thereof there is no death.
