The Bible


As uss vac y dooinney; gow hood skynn ghyere, gow hood razor yn vaareyder, as tayrn eh harrish dty chione, as dty aasaag, eisht gow hood meihaghyn dy howse, as dy rheynn yn olt.

And thou, son of man, take thee a sharp knife, take thee a barber's razor, and cause it to pass upon thine head and upon thy beard: then take thee balances to weigh, and divide the hair.


Yn trass ayrn nee oo lostey lesh aile ayns mean yn ard-valley, tra ta laghyn y chionney-stiagh noi eck er ny chooilleeney as trass aym nee oo y ghoaill, as giarey dy myn eh lesh y skynn; as trass ayrn ver oo lesh y gheay, as neem's cliwe y hayrn geiyrt orroo.

Thou shalt burn with fire a third part in the midst of the city, when the days of the siege are fulfilled: and thou shalt take a third part, and smite about it with a knife: and a third part thou shalt scatter in the wind; and I will draw out a sword after them.


Nee oo myrgeddin kuse fardalagh jeu y ghoaill, as kiangley ad ayns fillaghyn dty choamrey.

Thou shalt also take thereof a few in number, and bind them in thy skirts.


As gow paart jeu reesht, as tilg ad ayns mean yn aile, as losht ad ayns yn aile; son veih shen nee lossey brishey magh er slane thie Israel.

Then take of them again, and cast them into the midst of the fire, and burn them in the fire; for thereof shall a fire come forth into all the house of Israel.


Myr shoh ta'n Chiarn Jee dy ghra, She shoh Jerusalem; ta mee er hoiaghey ayns mean ny ashoonyn, as ny cheeraghyn ta mygeayrt-y-mooee.

Thus saith the Lord God; This is Jerusalem: I have set it in the midst of the nations and countries that are round about her.


As t'eeish er chaghlaa my vriwnyssyn gys mee-chraueeaght, ny smoo na ny ashoonyn, as my lattyssyn, ny smoo na ny cheeraghyn ta mygeayrt-y-mooee: son t'ad er n'obbal my vriwnyssyn, as my lattyssyn, cha vel ad er n'immeeaght ayndoo.

And she hath changed my judgments into wickedness more than the nations, and my statutes more than the countries that are round about her: for they have refused my judgments and my statutes, they have not walked in them.


Shen-y-fa, myr shoh ta'n Chiarn Jee dy ghra, Er-yn-oyr dy vel shiuish er nyn mishaghey ny smoo na ny ashoonyn ta mygeayrt-y-miu, as nagh vel shiu er n'immeeaght ayns my lattyssyn, chamoo er reaylley my vriwnyssyn, ny er n'yannoo cordail rish briwnyssyn ny ashoonyn ta mygeayrt-y-miu;

Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Because ye multiplied more than the nations that are round about you, and have not walked in my statutes, neither have kept my judgments, neither have done according to the judgments of the nations that are round about you;


Shen-y-fa myr shoh ta'n Chiarn Jee dy ghra, Cur-my-ner ta mish, dy jarroo mish hene, dt'oï, as ayns dty vean's goym cooilleeney jeed's ayns shilley ny ashoonyn.

Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, am against thee, and will execute judgments in the midst of thee in the sight of the nations.


As neem's aynyd shen nagh vel mee foast er n'yannoo as y lheid nagh jean-ym arragh, kyndagh rish ooilley dty ghrogh-yannoo,

And I will do in thee that which I have not done, and whereunto I will not do any more the like, because of all thine abominations.


Shen-y-fa nee ny ayraghyn; gee nyn gloan cheu-sthie jeed, as nee ny cloan gee nyn ayraghyn; as neem's my vriwnyssyn y chooilleeney aynyd's, as ooilley ny t'er-mayrn jeed neem's y skeayley gys dy chooilley gheay.

Therefore the fathers shall eat the sons in the midst of thee, and the sons shall eat their fathers; and I will execute judgments in thee, and the whole remnant of thee will I scatter into all the winds.


Shen-y-fa, myr ta mee bio, ta'n Chiarn Jee dy ghra, Son shickyrys, er-yn-oyr dy vel oo er an-chasherickey my hiamble lesh ooilley dty chliaghtaghyn dwoaiagh, as lesh ooilley dty obbraghyn eajee; shen-y-fa neem's uss myrgeddin y leodaghey, chamoo nee my hooill lhiggey lhiat, chamoo goym chymmey jeed.

Wherefore, as I live, saith the Lord God; Surely, because thou hast defiled my sanctuary with all thy detestable things, and with all thine abominations, therefore will I also diminish thee; neither shall mine eye spare, neither will I have any pity.


Yiow yn trass ayrn jeed baase lesh y phaitt, as lesh gortey bee ad er ny choyrt-mow cheu-sthie jeed; as nee trass ayrn tuittym liorish y chliwe mygeayrt-y-mood; as trass ayrn nee'm y skeayley lesh dy chooilley gheay, as nee'm cliwe y hayrn geiyrt orroo.

A third part of thee shall die with the pestilence, and with famine shall they be consumed in the midst of thee: and a third part shall fall by the sword round about thee; and I will scatter a third part into all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them.


Myr shoh vees my chorree: er ny chooilleeney, as ver-ym er my yymmoose dy hannaghtyn orroo, as bee'm er my gherjaghey: as bee fys oc dy nee mish y Chiarn, t'er loayrt eh ayns my eulys, tra ta mee er ghoaill cooilleeney my yymmoose orroo.

Thus shall mine anger be accomplished, and I will cause my fury to rest upon them, and I will be comforted: and they shall know that I the Lord have spoken it in my zeal, when I have accomplished my fury in them.


Ny-sodjey ver-ym naardey oo, as bee oo son oltooan mastey ny ashoonyn ta mygeayrt-y-mood, ayns y chilley ocsyn ooilley ta goll shaghey.

Moreover I will make thee waste, and a reproach among the nations that are round about thee, in the sight of all that pass by.


Myr shen bee eh ny oltooan, as anghoo, as raaue, as yindys da ny ashoonyn ta mygeayrt y mood, tra neem's my vriwnyssyn y chooilleeney ort's, ayns corree, as ayns eulys, as ayns oghsan dewil; ta mish y Chiarn er loayrt eh.

So it shall be a reproach and a taunt, an instruction and an astonishment unto the nations that are round about thee, when I shall execute judgments in thee in anger and in fury and in furious rebukes. I the Lord have spoken it.


Tra lhig-yms orroo ny sideyn gyere dy ghortey, kiarit son y toyrt-mow oc, as shen ver-yms dy stroie shiu, as gowee yn ghortey niart erriu, as brish-yms bun nyn arran.

When I shall send upon them the evil arrows of famine, which shall be for their destruction, and which I will send to destroy you: and I will increase the famine upon you, and will break your staff of bread:


Myr shen lhig-yms erriu yn ghortey, as drogh-veishtyn, as ver ad oo naardey; as hed paitt as fuill dty hrooid, as ver-ym lhiam yn cliwe ort: ta mish y Chiarn er loayrt eh.

So will I send upon you famine and evil beasts, and they shall bereave thee: and pestilence and blood shall pass through thee; and I will bring the sword upon thee. I the Lord have spoken it.
