The Bible


Myr shoh ta'n Chiarn gra, Freill-jee briwnys, as eiyr-jee da cairys: son ta my haualtys er-gerrey dy laue, as my ynrickys dy ve er ny hoilshaghey.

Thus saith the Lord, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.


S'bannit y dooinney ta jannoo shoh, as mac y dooinney ta goaill greme er; ta freayll yn doonaght veih brishey eh, as freayll e laue veih jannoo aggair.

Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.


Chamoo lhig da mac y joarree, t'er hyndaa gys y Chiarn, gra, Ta'n Chiarn dy bollagh er scarrey mee veih e phobble: chamoo lhig da'n dooinney gennish gra, Cur-my-ner, ta mee my villey creen.

Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the Lord, speak, saying, The Lord hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree.


Son shoh ta'n Chiarn gra rish ny deiney gennish ta freayll my ghooneeyn, as reih ny reddyn shen ta dy my wooiys, as ta goaill greme er my chonaant;

For thus saith the Lord unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant;


Dy jarroo dauesyn ver-yms ayns my hie as er cheu-sthie jeh my voallaghyn, ynnyd as ennym share na jeh mec as inneenyn: ver-yms daue ennym dy bragh farraghtyn, nagh bee er ny yiarey jeh.

Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.


Myrgeddin mec y joarree ta lhiantyn ad-hene gys y Chiarn, dy hirveish eh, as dy choyrt graih da ennym y Chiarn, dy ve e hirveishee, dagh unnane ta freayll yn doonaght veih brishey eh, as ta goaill greme er my chonaant

Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the Lord, to serve him, and to love the name of the Lord, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant;


Eer ad shen ver-ym lhiam gys my lieau casherick, as nee'm ad gerjoil ayns my hie dy phadjer; bee soiaghey jeant jeh ny ourallyn-losht as ny chebballyn oc er my altar: son bee my hie's enmyssit thie dy phadjer son dy chooilley phobble.

Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.


Ta'n Chiarn Jee, ta chaglym cooidjagh eebyrtee Israel, gra, Foast chaglyms t'ooilley huggey, mâroosyn ta hannah er jeet stiagh huggey.

The Lord God, which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.


Ooilley shiuish vaase y vagheragh tar-jee dy stroie, dy jarroo, ooilley shiuish veiyn ny keylley.

All ye beasts of the field, come to devour, yea, all ye beasts in the forest.

His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.


Dy jarroo t'ad nyn moddee yollyssagh nagh vel dy bragh dy liooar oc, as t'ad nyn mochillyn gyn tushtey: t'ad ooilley geiyrt er nyn raaidyn hene, dagh unnane lurg e chosney hene veih dy chooilley ard

Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.
