The Bible


Goo yn Chiarn haink gys Hosea, mac Veeri, rish lhing Uzziah, Yotham, Ahaz as Hezekiah, reeaghyn Yudah, as rish lhing Yeroboam mac Yoash ree Israel.

The word of the Lord that came unto Hosea, the son of Beeri, in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash, king of Israel.


Toshiaght goo yn Chiarn liorish Hosea: as dooyrt y Chiarn rish Hosea Immee, as gow hood ben vaarderagh, as cloan oainjyr agh: son ta'n cheer er ve foiljagh jeh maarderys vooar, coyrt cooyl da'n Chiarn.

The beginning of the word of the Lord by Hosea. And the Lord said to Hosea, Go, take unto thee a wife of whoredoms and children of whoredoms: for the land hath committed great whoredom, departing from the Lord.


Er shoh hie eh, as ghow eh Gomer inneen Ghibleam, ren gientyn as gymmyrkey mac da.

So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim; which conceived, and bare him a son.


As dooyrt y Chiarn rish, Enmys eh Jezreel; son foast ayns traa gerrit kerree-yms fuill Yezreel er thie Yehu, as ver-ym jerrey er reeriaght thie Israel.

And the Lord said unto him, Call his name Jezreel; for yet a little while, and I will avenge the blood of Jezreel upon the house of Jehu, and will cause to cease the kingdom of the house of Israel.


As hig eh gy-kione 'sy laa shen, dy brish-ym bow Israel ayns glione Yezreel.

And it shall come to pass at that day, that I will break the bow of Israel, in the valley of Jezreel.


As ren ee gientyn reesht, as gymmyrkey inneen; as dooyrt Jee rish, Enmys ee Lo-ruhamah: son cha bee ny-sodjey myghin aym er thie Israel; agh nee'm dy bollagh ad y astyrt.

And she conceived again, and bare a daughter. And God said unto him, Call her name Loruhamah: for I will no more have mercy upon the house of Israel; but I will utterly take them away.


Agh bee myghin aym er thie Yudah, as saue-ym ad liorish y Chiarn y Jee oc; agh cha nee liorish bow, ny liorish cliwe, ny liorish caggey, liorish cabbil, ny liorish markee, nee'm ad y hauail.

But I will have mercy upon the house of Judah, and will save them by the Lord their God, and will not save them by bow, nor by sword, nor by battle, by horses, nor by horsemen.


Nish tra v'ee er harbaa Lo-ruhamah, yien ee, as dymmyrk ee mac.

Now when she had weaned Loruhamah, she conceived, and bare a son.


Eisht dooyrt Jee, Jean genmys eh shoh Lo-ammi: son cha vel shiuish yn pobble aym's, as cha beem's yn Jee euish.

Then said God, Call his name Loammi: for ye are not my people, and I will not be your God.


Ny-yeih bee earroo cloan Israel myr genniagh ny marrey, nagh vod ve er ny howse, ny er ny choontey; as hig eh gy-kione, 'syn ynnyd ayn ve er ny ghra roo, Cha nee shiuish yn pobble aym's, dy nee ayns shen bee eh grait roo, Shiuish mec y Jee bio.

Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.


Eisht bee cloan Yudah, as cloan Israel er nyn jaglym dy cheilley, as nee ad reih magh leeideilagh daue hene, as hig ad seose ass y cheer: son s'mooar vees laa Yezreel!

Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together, and appoint themselves one head, and they shall come up out of the land: for great shall be the day of Jezreel.
