O Israel, chyndaa gys y Chiarn dty Yee; son t'ou er duittym liorish dty vee-chairys hene.

O Israel, return unto the Lord thy God; for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity.


Gow-jee meriu goan [arryssagh] as chyndaa-jee gys y Chiarn: abbyr-jee rish, Gow ersooyl dy chooilley vee-chairys, as jean soiaghey graysoil j'in: myr shen chebbee mayd dhyt oural nyn meillyn.

Take with you words, and turn to the Lord: say unto him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we render the calves of our lips.

Asshur shall not save us; we will not ride upon horses: neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, Ye are our gods: for in thee the fatherless findeth mercy.

His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive tree, and his smell as Lebanon.

They that dwell under his shadow shall return; they shall revive as the corn, and grow as the vine: the scent thereof shall be as the wine of Lebanon.


Nee Ephraim gra, Cre t'aym dy yannoo arragh rish jallooyn? cheayll mee eh, as ghow mee tastey jeh: ta mee myr billey-juys glass, voym's ta dty vess ry-gheddyn.

Ephraim shall say, What have I to do any more with idols? I have heard him, and observed him: I am like a green fir tree. From me is thy fruit found.


Quoi ta creeney, as nee eh toiggal ny reddyn shoh? toiggalagh, as yiow eh fys orroo? son ta raaidyn y Chiarn jeeragh, as nee'n vooinjer ynrick gimmeeaght ayndoo: agh nee ny mee-viallee cherraghtyn lioroo.

Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.
