The Bible


Ec y traa shen hug Merodach-baladan, mac Valadan ree Vabylon, screeunyn as cowrey gys Hezekiah: son cheayll eh dy row eh er ny ve ching, as er choural.

At that time Merodachbaladan, the son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent letters and a present to Hezekiah: for he had heard that he had been sick, and was recovered.


As ren Hezekiah mooar jeu, as yeeagh eh daue ooilley cooid verchagh e hie, yn argid, as yn airh, as ny spiceyn, as yn ooil chostal, as ooilley thie e eilley-caggee, as ooilley ny va ry-gheddyn ayns ny tashtaghyn echey; cha row nhee erbee ayns e hie, ny ayns e slane reeriaght, nagh yeeagh eh daue.

And Hezekiah was glad of them, and shewed them the house of his precious things, the silver, and the gold, and the spices, and the precious ointment, and all the house of his armour, and all that was found in his treasures: there was nothing in his house, nor in all his dominion, that Hezekiah shewed them not.


Eisht haink Isaiah yn phadeyr gys ree Hezekiah, as dooyrt eh rish, Cre dooyrt ny deiney shoh? as cre veih haink ad hood's? As dooyrt Hezekiah, T'ad er jeet hym veih cheer foddey, eer veih Babylon.

Then came Isaiah the prophet unto king Hezekiah, and said unto him, What said these men? and from whence came they unto thee? And Hezekiah said, They are come from a far country unto me, even from Babylon.


Eisht dooyrt eh, Cre t'ad er vakin ayns dty hie? As dreggyr Hezekiah, T'ad er vakin dy chooilley nhee t'ayns my hie: cha vel nhee erbee mastey my hashtaghyn nagh vel mee er yeeaghyn daue.

Then said he, What have they seen in thine house? And Hezekiah answered, All that is in mine house have they seen: there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shewed them.


Eisht dooyrt Isaiah rish Hezekiah, Clasht rish goo Chiarn ny flaunyssee;

Then said Isaiah to Hezekiah, Hear the word of the Lord of hosts:


Cur-my-ner, hig ny laghyn, dy bee ooilley ny ta ayns dty hie, as ooilley tashtaghyn dty henn-ayryn gys y laa t'ayn jiu, er nyn goyrt lhieu ersooyl gys Babylon: cha bee nhee erbee faagit, ta'n Chiarn dy ghra.

Behold, the days come, that all that is in thine house, and that which thy fathers have laid up in store until this day, shall be carried to Babylon: nothing shall be left, saith the Lord.


As jeh dty vec hig jeed's, nee oo y gheddyn, nee ad goaill ersooyl ad; bee ad nyn shirveishee ayns plaase ree Vabylon.

And of thy sons that shall issue from thee, which thou shalt beget, shall they take away; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon.


Eisht dooyrt Hezekiah rish Isaiah, S'mie ta goo yn Chiarn t'ou uss er loayrt: dooyrt eh ny-sodjey, Son bee shee as ynrickys rish my lhing's.

Then said Hezekiah to Isaiah, Good is the word of the Lord which thou hast spoken. He said moreover, For there shall be peace and truth in my days.
