The Bible


Myr shoh ta'n Chiarn dy ghra, Immee, as fow boteil craie yn phasheyder, as gow mayrt paart jeh shenndeeaght y phobble as jeh shanstyr ny saggyrtyn,

Thus saith the Lord, Go and get a potter's earthen bottle, and take of the ancients of the people, and of the ancients of the priests;


As gow magh gys coan mac Hinnom, ta er-gerrey da'n raad myr t'ou goll stiagh er y yiat har, as jean fockley-magh ayns shen ny goan ver-yms royd;

And go forth unto the valley of the son of Hinnom, which is by the entry of the east gate, and proclaim there the words that I shall tell thee,


As abbyr, Clasht-jee goo yn Chiarn, O reeaghyn Yudah, as shiuish chummaltee Yerusalem myr shoh ta Chiarn ny sheshaghtyn flaunyssagh, Jee Israel, dy ghra? Cur-my-ner, ver-ym lhiam olk er y voayl shoh, quoi-erbee chlinnys eh, nee e chleayshyn feiyral.

And say, Hear ye the word of the Lord, O kings of Judah, and inhabitants of Jerusalem; Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, the which whosoever heareth, his ears shall tingle.


Er-yn-oyr dy vel ad er my hreigeil, as er an-chasherickey yn voayl shoh, as er lostey incense ayn da jeeghyn joarree, nagh row enney oc hene orroo, ny ec nyn ayraghyn, ny ec reeaghyn Yudah, as dy vel ad er lhieeney yn voayl shoh lesh fuill gyn-loght.

Because they have forsaken me, and have estranged this place, and have burned incense in it unto other gods, whom neither they nor their fathers have known, nor the kings of Judah, and have filled this place with the blood of innocents;


T'ad er hroggal myrgeddin altaryn Vaal, dy lostey nyn mec lesh aile son chebballyn-losht da Baal, red nagh doardee mee daue, chamoo loayr mee jeh, chamoo haink eh ayns my smooinaghtyn.

They have built also the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal, which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither came it into my mind:


Shen-y-fa, cur-my-ner, ta ny laghyn cheet, ta'n Chiarn dy ghra, nagh bee yn ynnyd shoh ny-sodjey enmyssit Tophet, ny, Coan mac Hinnom, agh, Coan y dunverys.

Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that this place shall no more be called Tophet, nor The valley of the son of Hinnom, but The valley of slaughter.


As ver-ym shaghrynys er coyrle Yudah as Yerusalem 'sy voayl shoh; as ver-ym orroo tuittym liorish y chliwe roish nyn noidyn, as liorish ny lauesyn ocsyn ta shirrey nyn mioys; as ver-ym ny kirp oc son beaghey da eeanlee'n aer, as da beishtyn y thallooin.

And I will make void the counsel of Judah and Jerusalem in this place; and I will cause them to fall by the sword before their enemies, and by the hands of them that seek their lives: and their carcases will I give to be meat for the fowls of the heaven, and for the beasts of the earth.


As nee'm yn ard-valley shoh ny hraartys, as ny chraid: bee yindyss mooar er dy chooilley unnane hed shaghey; as nee ad gannidys, kyndagh rish ooilley'n kerraghey trome hig urree.

And I will make this city desolate, and an hissing; every one that passeth thereby shall be astonished and hiss because of all the plagues thereof.


As ver-ym orroo gee feill nyn mec, as feill ny inneenyn oc hene, as dy n'ee ad dagh unnane feill e charrey, 'sy chaggey as 'sy chennid lesh nee nyn noidyn, as adsyn ta shirrey nyn mioys, ad y chruinnaghey stiagh.

And I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they shall eat every one the flesh of his friend in the siege and straitness, wherewith their enemies, and they that seek their lives, shall straiten them.


Eisht nee oo yn voteil y vrishey ayns shilley ny deiney hed mayrt,

Then shalt thou break the bottle in the sight of the men that go with thee,


As nee oo gra roo, Myr shoh ta Chiarn ny sheshaghtyn flaunyssagh dy ghra, Eer myr shoh brish-yms y pobble shoh, as yn ard-valley shoh, myr ta fer brishey saagh craie yn phasheyder, nagh vod reesht ve jeant slane; as nee ad goanluckey ad ayns Tophet, derrey nagh bee boayl-oanluckee ayn.

And shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Even so will I break this people and this city, as one breaketh a potter's vessel, that cannot be made whole again: and they shall bury them in Tophet, till there be no place to bury.


Shoh myr nee'm jannoo rish yn ynnyd shoh, ta'n Chiarn dy ghra, as rish ny cummaltee t'ayn, as nee'm eer yn ard-valley shoh y yannoo myr Tophet.

Thus will I do unto this place, saith the Lord, and to the inhabitants thereof, and even make this city as Tophet:


As bee thieyn Yerusalem, as thieyn reeaghyn Yudah, feohdoil myr yn ynnyd Tophet, kyndagh rish ooilley ny thieyn er y vullagh oc t'ad er lostey oural-incense da slane armee yn aer, as er gheayrtey magh chebballyn-feeyney da jeeghyn joarree.

And the houses of Jerusalem, and the houses of the kings of Judah, shall be defiled as the place of Tophet, because of all the houses upon whose roofs they have burned incense unto all the host of heaven, and have poured out drink offerings unto other gods.


Eisht haink Jeremiah veih Tophet, raad va'n Chiarn er choyrt eh dy yannoo phadeyrys, as hass eh ayns cooyrt thie yn Chiarn, as dooyrt eh rish ooilley yn pobble.

Then came Jeremiah from Tophet, whither the Lord had sent him to prophesy; and he stood in the court of the Lord's house; and said to all the people,


Myr shoh ta Chiarn ny sheshaghtyn flaunyssagh, Jee Israel, dy ghra, Cur-my-ner, ver-ym lhiam er yn ard-valley shoh, as er ooilley e baljyn, ooilley yn olk ta mee er n'ockley-magh noi eck; er-yn-oyr dy vel ad er chreoghey nyn mwannal noi geaishtagh rish my ghoan's.

Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring upon this city and upon all her towns all the evil that I have pronounced against it, because they have hardened their necks, that they might not hear my words.
