Yn goo loayr y phadeyr Jeremiah rish Baruch mac Neriah, tra v'eh er scrieu ny goan shoh ayns lioar veih beeal Yeremiah, 'sy chiarroo vleïn jeh reill Yekoiakim mac Yosiah, ree Yudah, gra,

The word that Jeremiah the prophet spake unto Baruch the son of Neriah, when he had written these words in a book at the mouth of Jeremiah, in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, saying,


Myr shoh ta'n Chiarn Jee Israel dy ghra rhyt's, O Varuch;

Thus saith the Lord, the God of Israel, unto thee, O Baruch:


Dooyrt uss, Smerg dooys nish! son ta'n Chiarn er laadey treihys er my hrimshey; ren mee gannooinaghey ayns my osnaghyn as cha vel mee geddyn fea,

Thou didst say, Woe is me now! for the Lord hath added grief to my sorrow; I fainted in my sighing, and I find no rest.


Myr shoh nee oo gra rish, Shoh ta'n Chiarn dy ghra, Cur-my-ner, shen ny ta mee er droggal nee'm lhieggal, as shen ta mee er hoiaghey astyr-ym ass ny fraueyn, eer yn slane cheer shoh.

Thus shalt thou say unto him, The Lord saith thus; Behold, that which I have built will I break down, and that which I have planted I will pluck up, even this whole land.


As vel uss shirrey vondeishyn er-lheh dhyt hene? ny shir y lheid: son cur-my ner, ver-yms lhiam olk er dy chooilley eill ta'n Chiarn dy ghra; agh bee dty vioys lhiggit lhiat raad erbee dy jed oo.

And seekest thou great things for thyself? seek them not: for, behold, I will bring evil upon all flesh, saith the Lord: but thy life will I give unto thee for a prey in all places whither thou goest.
