The Bible


Er graih Zion cha bee'm my-host, as er graih Yerusalem cha goym fea, derrey hed yn ynrickys echey magh myr sollyssid, as yn saualtys echey goll-rish lamp ta lossey.

For Zion's sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth.


As ver ny ashoonee my-ner dty ynrickys, as dy chooilley ree dty ghloyr: as bee oo cowrit liorish ennym noa, nee beeal y Chiarn genmys.

And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord shall name.


Bee uss myrgeddin attey dy ghloyr ayns laue y Chiarn, as crown reeoil ayns laue dty Yee.

Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.


Cha bee uss ny smoo enmyssit Yn unnane treigit: chamoo vees dty heer ny lurg shoh enmyssit Traartys: agh bee uss enmyssit Hephzi-bah, as dty heer Beulah: son ta'n Chiarn goaill taitnys aynyd, as bee dty heer poost rish.

Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the Lord delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.


Son myr ta dooinney aeg poosey moidyn, myr shen nee yn Chiarn uss y phoosey: as myr ta'n dooinney-poosee goaill boggey harrish y ven-phoost, myr shen myrgeddin nee dty Yee goaill boggey harryd's.

For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.


Ta mee er hoiaghey arreyderyn er dty voallaghyn, O Yerusalem, nagh bee nyn-dhost laa ny oie: shiuish ta enmyssit er y Chiarn, ny bee-jee nyn-dhost;

I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the Lord, keep not silence,


As ny cur-jee fea da, derrey ver eh shickyrys, as derrey nee eh jannoo Jerusalem ny voylley er y thalloo.

And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.


Ta'n Chiarn er vreearrey liorish e laue yesh, as liorish niart e roih, Shickyr cha derym maghey shoh dty arroo dy ve beaghey da dty noidyn; chamoo nee yn chloan yoarree giu yn feeyn ayd's t'ou er laboragh er y hon:

The Lord hath sworn by his right hand, and by the arm of his strength, Surely I will no more give thy corn to be meat for thine enemies; and the sons of the stranger shall not drink thy wine, for the which thou hast laboured:


Agh adsyn t'er haglym eh nee gee jeh, as bannaghey yn Chiarn; as adsyn t'er hymsagh eh cooidjagh nee giu jeh ayns cooyrtyn my chasherickys.

But they that have gathered it shall eat it, and praise the Lord; and they that have brought it together shall drink it in the courts of my holiness.


Trooid lhieu immee-jee trooid ny giattyn; kiartee-jee yn raad roish y pobble; tilg-jee seose, tilg-jee seose yn raad-mooar; chymsee-jee ersooyl ny claghyn: trog-jee seose mergey da'n pobble.

Go through, go through the gates; prepare ye the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a standard for the people.


Cur-my-ner, ta'n Chiarn er n'ockley-magh gys ardjyn sodjey-magh y theihll, Abbyr-jee rish inneen Zion, Cur-my-ner, ta dty haualtagh cheet, cur-my-ner, ta'n leagh echey marish, as e obbyr kiongoyrt rish.

Behold, the Lord hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.


As bee ad enmyssit Yn pobble casherick, Cloan chionnit y Chiarn: as bee uss enmyssit Ennoil, Yn ard-valley nagh vel treigit.

And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the Lord: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken.
