Mish y dooinney ta ainjyssagh er seaghyn liorish slat e yymmoose.

I am the man that hath seen affliction by the rod of his wrath.


T'eh er my leeideil, as er chur lesh mish gys dorraghys, as cha nee gys y toilshey.

He hath led me, and brought me into darkness, but not into light.


Dy shickyr m'oï's t'eh er ny hyndaa t'eh chyndaa e laue m'oï fey-ny-laa:

Surely against me is he turned; he turneth his hand against me all the day.


My eill as my chrackan t'eh er n'yannoo shenn; t'eh er vrishey my chraueyn.

My flesh and my skin hath he made old; he hath broken my bones.


T'eh er hroggal m'oï, as er chombaasal mee mygeayrt lesh gall as angaish.

He hath builded against me, and compassed me with gall and travail.

He hath set me in dark places, as they that be dead of old.


T'eh er chruinnaghey mee mygeayrt nagh voddym cosney magh: t'eh er n'yannoo my gheuley trome.

He hath hedged me about, that I cannot get out: he hath made my chain heavy.


Myrgeddin tra ta mee gaccan as geam, t'eh dooney magh my phadjer.

Also when I cry and shout, he shutteth out my prayer.


T'eh er yeigh my raaidyn lesh claghyn giarit: t'eh er n'yannoo ny chassanyn cam.

He hath inclosed my ways with hewn stone, he hath made my paths crooked.


Dooys v'eh myr muc-awin ny lhie farkiaght, as myr lion cooyl-chlea.

He was unto me as a bear lying in wait, and as a lion in secret places.


T'eh er hyndaa dy lhiattee my raaidyn as er my raipey ayns peeshyn; t'eh er my yannoo follym-faase.

He hath turned aside my ways, and pulled me in pieces: he hath made me desolate.


T'eh er lhoobey e vhow, as er hoiaghey mish son mark da'n tide.

He hath bent his bow, and set me as a mark for the arrow.


T'eh er lhiggey sideyn e whiver ayns my veeghyn.

He hath caused the arrows of his quiver to enter into my reins.


Va mee son craid da ooilley my phobble, as yn ronneeaght oc fey-ny-laa.

I was a derision to all my people; and their song all the day.


T'eh er my lhieeney lesh sherriuid, t'eh er n'yannoo mee er-meshtey lesh ullymar.

He hath filled me with bitterness, he hath made me drunken with wormwood.


T'eh myrgeddin er vrishey my eeacklyn myr claghyn-geinnee, t'eh er my choodaghey lesh leoie.

He hath also broken my teeth with gravel stones, he hath covered me with ashes.


As t'ou er scughey my annym foddey veih shee: yarrood mee my vaynrys.

And thou hast removed my soul far off from peace: I forgat prosperity.


As dooyrt mee, Ta my niart, as my hreishteil er jerraghtyn veih'n Chiarn.

And I said, My strength and my hope is perished from the Lord:


Cooinaghtyn er my heaghyn as my hreihys, yn ullymar as y gall.

Remembering mine affliction and my misery, the wormwood and the gall.


Ta my annym dy kinjagh cooinaghtyn orroo, as te er ny injillaghey cheu-sthie jee'm.

My soul hath them still in remembrance, and is humbled in me.


Shoh ta mee tayrn gys my cooinaghtyn, shen-y-fa ta mee ayns treishteil.

This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.


She trooid myghinyn y Chiarn te nagh vel shin stroit, as nagh vel e hymmey failleil.

It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.


T'ad noa dy chooilley voghrey: s'mooar ta dty ynrickys.

They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.


Ta'n Chiarn my chronney, ta my annym dy ghra, shen-y-fa bee my varrant er.

The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.


Ta'n Chiarn dooie dauesyn ta farkiaght er, da'n annym ta shirrey huggey.

The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.


Te mie son dooinney chammah dy hreishteil, as dy meen farkiaght son saualtys y Chiarn.

It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.


Te mie son dooinney dy ymmyrkey'n whing ayns e aegid.

It is good for a man that he bear the yoke of his youth.


T'eh soie ny-lomarcan, as ny-host, er-yn-oyr dy vel eh er n'ymmyrkey er eh.

He sitteth alone and keepeth silence, because he hath borne it upon him.


T'eh cur e veeal ayns y joan, ayns treishteil dy chaghlaa.

He putteth his mouth in the dust; if so be there may be hope.


T'eh cur e lieckan dasyn ta bwoalley eh, eeh laadit lesh oltooan.

He giveth his cheek to him that smiteth him: he is filled full with reproach.


Son cha jean y Chiarn tilgey jeh son

For the Lord will not cast off for ever:


Agh ga dy vel eh seaghney, foast nee eh chymmey 'ghoaill cordail rish earroo e vyghinyn.

But though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies.

Who is he that saith, and it cometh to pass, when the Lord commandeth it not?


Nagh vel mie as sie cheet magh ass beeal yn er-syrjey?

Out of the mouth of the most High proceedeth not evil and good?


Cre'n-fa ta dooinney bio plaiynt, dooinney son kerraghey e pheccaghyn?
