The Bible


As haink goo yn Chiarn hym's, gra,

And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,


Vac y dooinney, cre-woad share ta'n billey-feeyney na billey erbee elley, na banglane mastey biljyn ny keylley?

Son of man, what is the vine tree more than any tree, or than a branch which is among the trees of the forest?


Vod y fuygh echey ve goit son obbyr erbee? ny, jean deiney jannoo pin jeh dy chroghey saagh erbee er?

Shall wood be taken thereof to do any work? or will men take a pin of it to hang any vessel thereon?


Cur-my-ner te tilgit 'syn aile dy lostey; ta'n aile dy stroie eh bun as baare, as ta'n mean echey losht. Vel eh cooie son obbyr erbee?

Behold, it is cast into the fire for fuel; the fire devoureth both the ends of it, and the midst of it is burned. Is it meet for any work?


Gur-my-ner, tra ve slane, cha row eh cooie son obbyr erbee, cre-woad sloo eisht vees ymmyd ayn son obbyr erbee, tra ta'n aile er stroie eh, as te er ny lostey?

Behold, when it was whole, it was meet for no work: how much less shall it be meet yet for any work, when the fire hath devoured it, and it is burned?


Shen-y-fa myr shoh ta'n Chiarn Jee dy ghra, Myr ta mee er choyrt yn billey-feeyney mastey biljyn ny keylley da'n aile son lostey, er yn aght cheddin ver-ym cummaltee Yerusalem.

Therefore thus saith the Lord God; As the vine tree among the trees of the forest, which I have given to the fire for fuel, so will I give the inhabitants of Jerusalem.


As soie-yms my eddin nyn 'oï, nee ad chea veih un aile, agh nee aile elley ad y stroie: as bee fys eu, dy nee mish v Chiarn, tra ta mee soiaghey my eddin nyn 'oï.

And I will set my face against them; they shall go out from one fire, and another fire shall devour them; and ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I set my face against them.


As ver-ym naardey yn thalloo, er-yn-oyr dy vel ad er n'yannoo peccah, ta'n Chiarn Jee dy ghra.

And I will make the land desolate, because they have committed a trespass, saith the Lord God.
