The Bible


Errey Egypt. Cur-my-ner, ta'n Chiarn markiagh er bodjal bieau, as hig eh gys Egypt; as bee jallooyn Egypt tilgit bun-ry-skyn ec yn enish echey, as cree Egypt nee lheïe ersooyl cheu-sthie jeh.

The burden of Egypt. Behold, the Lord rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it.


As soie-yms ny Egyptianee noi ny Egyptianee: as nee ad caggey dagh unnane noi e vraar, as dagh unnane noi e naboo; ard-valley noi ard-valley, as reeriaght noi reeriaght.

And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom.


As nee dunnallys Egypt failleil ayns y vean echey; as ver-yms yn choyrle echey naardey: as nee ad shirrey gys ny jallooyn, as gys fir-obbee, as gys fir-faishnee, as gys buitchyn.

And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards.


As neem's ny Egyptianee y livrey gys laue reejerey dewil; as ree fargagh nee reill harrystoo, ta'n Chiarn dy ghra, eer Chiarn ny flaunyssee.

And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel lord; and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the Lord, the Lord of hosts.


As nee ny ushtaghyn failleil veih'n aarkey, as bee'n awin naardey as chirmit seose.

And the waters shall fail from the sea, and the river shall be wasted and dried up.


As chyndaa-ee ad ny awinyn foddey ersooyl; as bee ny strooanyn dy endeilys folmit as chirmit; yn chuirtlagh neesht as y chlioagagh nee fioghey.

And they shall turn the rivers far away; and the brooks of defence shall be emptied and dried up: the reeds and flags shall wither.


Yn chiurtlagh-phabyr liorish ny strooanyn, liorish beïll ny strooanyn, as dy chooilley nhee cuirt liorish ny strooanyn, nee fioghey, hed eh naardey, as cha bee arragh jeh.

The paper reeds by the brooks, by the mouth of the brooks, and every thing sown by the brooks, shall wither, be driven away, and be no more.


Bee ny eeasteyryn myrgeddin ayns trimshey, as nee dy chooilley unnane ta tilgey dooan ayns ny strooanyn dobberan, adsyn ta skeayley lieenteenyn er ny ushtaghyn nee ad shymley ersooyl.

The fishers also shall mourn, and all they that cast angle into the brooks shall lament, and they that spread nets upon the waters shall languish.


Adsyn myrgeddin ta gobbragh ayns lieen keyl, as lheid as ta fee obbyr jeebinagh, vees er ny choyrt mow.

Moreover they that work in fine flax, and they that weave networks, shall be confounded.


As bee yn obbyr oc ayns fardail, ooilley ny ta jannoo arraghyn as loghanyn son eeast.

And they shall be broken in the purposes thereof, all that make sluices and ponds for fish.


Shickyr ta princeyn Zoan meecheeayllagh, ta coyrle fir-choyrlee creeney Pharaoh er jeet dy ve bolvaneagh: kys ta shiu gra rish Pharaoh, Mish mac yn er-creeney, mac dy henn reeaghyn?

Surely the princes of Zoan are fools, the counsel of the wise counsellors of Pharaoh is become brutish: how say ye unto Pharaoh, I am the son of the wise, the son of ancient kings?


Cre vel adsyn? cre vel dty gheiney creeney? as lhig daue ginsh dhyt nish, as lhig da fys 've oc, cre ta Chiarn ny flaunyssee er chiarail er Egypt.

Where are they? where are thy wise men? and let them tell thee now, and let them know what the Lord of hosts hath purposed upon Egypt.


Ta princeyn Zoar er choayl nyn geeayl, ta princeyn Noph fo shaghrynys; t'ad er vrah Egypt, eer adsyn ta barrant ny rheamyn echey.

The princes of Zoan are become fools, the princes of Noph are deceived; they have also seduced Egypt, even they that are the stay of the tribes thereof.


Ta'n Chiarn er heaymey ny mast' oc spyrryd dy voirraneys: as t'ad er choyrt shaghrynys er Egypt ayns dy chooilley nhee t'ad goaill ayns laue, myr dooinney meshtal gymmylt ayns e skeay hene.

The Lord hath mingled a perverse spirit in the midst thereof: and they have caused Egypt to err in every work thereof, as a drunken man staggereth in his vomit.


Chamoo vees obbyr erbee ayns Egypt dy yannoo, son kione ny farbyl, banglane ny shuin.

Neither shall there be any work for Egypt, which the head or tail, branch or rush, may do.


Ayns y laa; shen vees Egypt goll-rish mraane: bee aggle as atchim er, kyndagh rish laue baggyrtagh Chiarn ny flaunyssee, t'eh dy chraa harrish.

In that day shall Egypt be like unto women: and it shall be afraid and fear because of the shaking of the hand of the Lord of hosts, which he shaketh over it.


As bee cheer Yudah ny atchim da Egypt: bee dy chooilley unnane ta gimraa er, agglagh er e hon hene, kyndagh rish coyrle Chiarn ny flaunyssee, t'eh er chiarail n'oï.

And the land of Judah shall be a terror unto Egypt, every one that maketh mention thereof shall be afraid in himself, because of the counsel of the Lord of hosts, which he hath determined against it.


Ayns y laa shen nee queig ard-valjyn ayns cheer Egypt loayrt glare Chanaan, as breearrey gys Chiarn ny flaunyssee: unnane vees enmyssit, Ard-valley ny greiney.

In that day shall five cities in the land of Egypt speak the language of Canaan, and swear to the Lord of hosts; one shall be called, The city of destruction.


Ayns y laa shen vees altar da'n Chiarn ayns mean cheer Egypt, as pillar ayns e ardjyn sodjey-magh gys y Chiarn.

In that day shall there be an altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the Lord.


As bee eh son cowrey, as son feanish da Chiarn ny flaunyssee ayns cheer Egypt; son nee ad geamagh gys y Chiarn, kyndagh rish ny tranlaasee, as ver eh huc saualtagh, eer fer niartal, as nee eh ad y livrey.

And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the Lord of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cry unto the Lord because of the oppressors, and he shall send them a saviour, and a great one, and he shall deliver them.


As bee yn Chiarn er ny hoilshaghey da Egypt, as ver ny Egyptianee enney er y Chiarn ayns y laa shen, as oural as chebbal y yannoo; dy jarroo nee ad breearrey gys y Chiarn as cooilleeney eh.

And the Lord shall be known to Egypt, and the Egyptians shall know the Lord in that day, and shall do sacrifice and oblation; yea, they shall vow a vow unto the Lord, and perform it.


As nee'n Chiarn bwoalley Egypt; nee eh bwoalley, as eh y lheihys: as nee ad chyndaa eer gys y Chiarn, as bee eh myghinagh daue, as nee eh ad y lheihys.

And the Lord shall smite Egypt: he shall smite and heal it: and they shall return even to the Lord, and he shall be intreated of them, and shall heal them.


Ayns y laa shen vees raad-mooar ass Egypt gys Assyria; as hig yn Assyrian gys Egypt, as yn Egyptian gys Assyria; as nee ny Egyptianee shirveish [Jee] marish ny Assyrianee.

In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians.


Ayns y laa shen vees Israel yn trass ashoon marish Egypt, as marish Assyria, eer bannaght ayns mean y cheer.

In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land:


Adsyn nee Chiarn ny flaunyssee bannaghey, gra, Bannit dy row Egypt my phobble, as Assyria obbyr my laueyn, as Israel my eiraght.

Whom the Lord of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance.
