The Bible


Ny-sodjey, dooyrt eh rhym, Vac y dooinney, ee shen ny t'ou dy gheddyn: ee yn lioar shoh, as immee royd dy loayrt rish thie Israel.

Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this roll, and go speak unto the house of Israel.


Er shoh doshil mee my veeal, as hug eh orrym dy ee yn lioar shen.

So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll.


As dooyrt eh rhym, Vac Y dooinney cur er dty chleeau goaill stiagh, as lhieen dty volg lesh y lioar shoh ta mee dy choyrt dhyt: eisht d'ee mee eh, as ve ayns my veeal myr mill son miljid

And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness.


As dooyrt eh rhym, Vac y dooinney, immee, royd oo, gys thie Israel, as loayr roo lesh my ghoan's.

And he said unto me, Son of man, go, get thee unto the house of Israel, and speak with my words unto them.


Son cha vel oo er dty choyrt gys pobble jeh chengey yoarree, ny jeh glare doillee, agh gys thie Israel:

For thou art not sent to a people of a strange speech and of an hard language, but to the house of Israel;


Cha nee gys ymmodee pobble jeh chengey yoarree, ny jeh glare doillee, nagh vod oo ny goan oc y hoiggal. Son shickyrys, dy beign er dty choyrt gys nyn lheid shoh, veagh ad er n'eaishtagh rhyt.

Not to many people of a strange speech and of an hard language, whose words thou canst not understand. Surely, had I sent thee to them, they would have hearkened unto thee.


Agh cha jean thie Israel geaishtagh rhyt's, son cha n'eaishtagh ad rhym's: son ta ooilley thie Israel roonagh as creoi-chreeagh.

But the house of Israel will not hearken unto thee; for they will not hearken unto me: for all the house of Israel are impudent and hardhearted.


Cur-my-ner ta mee er staayney yn eddin ayd's, noi yn eddin ocsyn, as glaare yn eddin ayd's, noi glaare yn eddin ocsyn.

Behold, I have made thy face strong against their faces, and thy forehead strong against their foreheads.


Myr yn adamant, ny s'creoi na'n chlagh chloaie ta mee er n'yannoo glaare dty eddin: ny gow aggle roue, chamoo lhig sheese dty chree ec y chilley oc, ga dy vel ad thie mee-viallagh.

As an adamant harder than flint have I made thy forehead: fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.


Dooyrt eh rhym ny-sodjey, Vac y dooinney, ooilley my ghoan loayr-yms rhyt, gow stiagh ayns dty chree, as clasht rish lesh dty chleayshyn.

Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, all my words that I shall speak unto thee receive in thine heart, and hear with thine ears.


As immee, gow royd hucsyn jeh'n chappeeys, gys cloan dty phobble, as abbyr roo, as insh daue, Myr shoh ta'n Chiarn Jee dy ghra, lhig daue geaishtagh, ny gyn geaishtagh.

And go, get thee to them of the captivity, unto the children of thy people, and speak unto them, and tell them, Thus saith the Lord God; whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear.


Eisht hrog yn spyrryd seose mee, as cheayll mee my-chooylloo sheean tharmane mooar, gra, Bannit dy row gloyr y Chiarn veih e ynnyd hene.

Then the spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing, saying, Blessed be the glory of the Lord from his place.


Cheayll mee myrgeddin feiyr skianyn ny cretooryn bio, va bentyn yn derrey yeh rish yn jeh elley, as feiyr ny queeylyn lioroo, as sheean y tharmane mooar.

I heard also the noise of the wings of the living creatures that touched one another, and the noise of the wheels over against them, and a noise of a great rushing.


Myr shen hrog y spyrryd mee seose, as ghow eh mee ersooyl, as hie mee ayns son-aigney, as bree my spyrryd, agh va laue yn Chiarn niartal orrym.

So the spirit lifted me up, and took me away, and I went in bitterness, in the heat of my spirit; but the hand of the Lord was strong upon me.


Eisht haink mee gys cloan y chappeeys ee Tel-abib, va cummal liorish awin Chebar, as hoie mee raad v'adsyn ny hoie, as ren mee tannaghtyn ayns shen my-host ny mast, oc shiaght laa.

Then I came to them of the captivity at Telabib, that dwelt by the river of Chebar, and I sat where they sat, and remained there astonished among them seven days.


As haink eh gy-kione lurg shiaght laa, dy daink goo yn Chiarn hym, gra,

And it came to pass at the end of seven days, that the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,


Vac y dooinney, ta mee er dty yannoo arreyder ayns thie Israel, shen-y-fa eaisht rish goan my veeal, as cur raaue daue voym's.

Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.


Tra ta mee gra rish y vee-chrauee, Ta baase son shickyrys dty chour; as mannagh der oo raaue da, chamoo loayrt, dy hyndaa yn vee-chrauee veih e ghrogh-raad, dy hauail e vioys: yiow yn dooinney meechrauee cheddin baase ayns e vee-chraueeaght, agh yn uill echey neem's geearree ec dty laue's.

When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.


Ny-yeih, my t'ou uss cur raaue da'n vee-chrauee, as mannagh vel eh chyndaa veih yn vee-chraueeaght echey, ny veih e ghrogh-raad, yiow eh baase ayns e vee-chraueeaght; agh t'ou uss er livrey dty annym.

Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.


Reesht, tra ta dooinney cairagh chyndaa veih e chairys, as cur-rish mee-chairys, as mish dy lhiggey da tuittym, yiow eh baase; er-yn-oyr nagh vel oo er chur raaue da, yiow eh baase ayns e pheccah, as e chairys t'eh er n'yannoo, cha bee eh er ny chooinaghtyn; agh yn uill echey neem's y yeearree ec dty laue's.

Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.


Ny-yeih, my t'ou cur raaue da'n dooinney cairagh, nagh jean yn er-cairagh peccah, as nagh vel eh cur-rish peccah; bee eh son firrinys bio, er-yn-oyr dy vel raaue er ny choyrt da: myrgeddin t'ou uss er livrey dt'annym.

Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.


As va laue yn Chiarn ayns shen orrym, as dooyrt eh rhym, Trog ort, royd oo gys y vagher foshlit, as neem's ayns shen taggloo rhyt.

And the hand of the Lord was there upon me; and he said unto me, Arise, go forth into the plain, and I will there talk with thee.


Eisht dirree mee, as hie mee magh 'sy vagher, as cur-my-ner hass gloyr y Chiarn ayns shen, myr y ghloyr shen honnick mee liorish awin Chebar, as huitt mee er my eddin.

Then I arose, and went forth into the plain: and, behold, the glory of the Lord stood there, as the glory which I saw by the river of Chebar: and I fell on my face.


Eisht hie yn spyrryd stiagh aynym, as hrog eh mee er my chassyn, as loayr eh rhym, as dooyrt eh, Immee royd, as jeigh oo hene stiagh ayns dty hie.

Then the spirit entered into me, and set me upon my feet, and spake with me, and said unto me, Go, shut thyself within thine house.


Agh er dty hon's, O vac y dooinney, ver ad geulaghyn ort, as bee oo geulit lioroo, agh cha lhig ad dhyt goll magh ny mast' oc.

But thou, O son of man, behold, they shall put bands upon thee, and shall bind thee with them, and thou shalt not go out among them:


As ver-yms er dty hengey lhiantyn gys clea dty veeal, myrshen dy bee oo balloo, as cha bee oo fer-raauee daue; son t'ad thie meeviallagh.

And I will make thy tongue cleave to the roof of thy mouth, that thou shalt be dumb, and shalt not be to them a reprover: for they are a rebellious house.


Agh tra loayr-yms rhyt, neem's dty veeal y osley, as jir oo roo, Myr shoh ta'n Chiarn Jee dy ghra, Eshyn ta clashtyn, lhig da clashtyn; as eshyn ta shaghney, lhig da shaghney: son t'ad thie mee-viallagh.

But when I speak with thee, I will open thy mouth, and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; He that heareth, let him hear; and he that forbeareth, let him forbear: for they are a rebellious house.
