The Bible


Eisht ghow Jonah padjer gys y Chiarn e Yee veih bolg yn eeast,

Then Jonah prayed unto the Lord his God out of the fish's belly,


As dooyrt eh, Deie mee kyndagh rish my heaghyn gys y Chiarn, as ren eh my chlashtyn; veih diunid yn oaie deie mee, as cheayll oo my choraa.

And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the Lord, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice.


Son t'ou er my hilgey ayns y diunid, ayns mean ny marrey, as haink ny thooillaghyn mygeayrt-y-moom, ta ooilley ny ushtaghyn as ny tonnyn ayd's er n'gholl harrym.

For thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: all thy billows and thy waves passed over me.


Eisht dooyrt mee Ta mee ceaut magh ass dty hilley; agh ny yeih nee'm jeeaghyn reesht lesh dty hiamble casherick.

Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will look again toward thy holy temple.


Haink ny ushtaghyn mygeayrt-y-moom, eer gys my annym: ren y diunid m'y chruinnaghey mygeayrt, va'n amlagh cast mysh my chione.

The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head.


Hie mee sheese choud's undin ny sleityn; bee yn thalloo as ny barryn eck my-geayrt-y-moom dy bragh, mannagh jean oo my vioys y livrey veih toyrt-mow, O Hiarn my Yee.

I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O Lord my God.


Tra ren my annym gannooinaghey cheu sthie jee'm, chooinee mee er y Chiarn, as haink my phadjer stiagh hood, gys dty hiamble casherick.

When my soul fainted within me I remembered the Lord: and my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple.


T'adsyn, ta cur geill da fardalyssyn breagagh, treigeil nyn myghin hene.

They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.


Agh chebb-yms oural dhyt lesh y choraa dy hoyrt-booise, eeck-ym shen ny ta mee er vreearrey: ta saualtys veih'n Chiarn.

But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the Lord.


As hug y Chiarn currym er yn eeast, as hilg eh magh Jonah er y thalloo chirrym.

And the Lord spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
