The Bible


Cur-my-ner, ver-yms magh my haghter, as kiartee eh yn raad roym: as hig y Chiarn, ta shiu jeeaghyn er e hon, dy gerrit gys e hiamble; eer chaghter y chonaant, ayn ta shiuish goaill taitnys: cur-my-ner nee eh cheet, ta Chiarn ny flaunyssee dy ghra.

Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts.


Agh quoi oddys gymmyrkey laa yn cheet echey? as quoi nee shassoo, tra hig eshyn kionfenish? son t'eh goll-rish yn aile echeysyn ta lheïe meayn, as myr sheeabyn y ghialleyder.

But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap:


As nee eh soie goll-rishyn ta glenney as scarrey argid veih'n dross: as nee eh mec Levi y chasherickey, as ad y ghlenney myr airh as argid, dy vod ad oural gys y Chiarn y hebbal ayns ynrickys.

And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness.


Shen y traa vees oural Yudah as Yerusalem eunyssagh gys y Chiarn, myr ayns y chenn earish, as myr ayns ny bleeantyn foddey er-dy-henney.

Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the Lord, as in the days of old, and as in former years.


As hig-yms chion erriu gys briwnys; as beem's my eanish gyere noi ny fir-obbee, as noi ocsyn ta brishey poosey, as noi ny looderyn-oaiagh, as noi ocsyn ta chionney er y labbree ayns e aill, as jannoo tranlaase er y ven-treoghe, as er y chloan gyn-ayr, as ta lhiettal veih'n joarree e chair, as nagh vel goaill aggle roym's, ta Chiarn ny flaunyssee dy ghra.

And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the Lord of hosts.


Son mish yn Chiarn, cha vel mee caghlaa: shen-y-fa cha vel shiuish mec Yacob er nyn stroie.

For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.


Veih eer laghyn ny ayraghyn eu, ta shiu er n'gholl er-shaghryn veih my lattyssyn, as cha vel shiu er reayll ad: chyndaa-jee hym's, as chyndaa-yms hiuish, ta Chiarn ny flaunyssee dy ghra: agh dooyrt shiu, Kys nee mayd chyndaa?

Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the Lord of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return?


Jean dooinney maarlys er Jee? foast ta shiuish er n'yannoo maarlys orrym's agh ta shiu gra, Cre ayn ta shin er n'yannoo maarlys ort? Ayns jagheenyn as ourallyn.

Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.


Ta shiu fo mollaght trome: son ta shiu er n'yannoo maarlys orrym's, eer yn slane ashoon shoh.

Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.


Cur-jee lhieu ooilley ny jagheenyn gys y thie-tashtee, dy vod beaghey 've ayns my hie's, as prow-jee mee nish lesh shoh, ta Chiarn ny flaunyssee dy ghra, mannagh voshil-yms diuish uinniagyn yn aer, as deayrtey magh bannaght, nagh bee room dy liooar dy ghoaill stiagh eh.

Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.


As nee'm yn stroider y chastey er y ghraih euish, nagh jean eh stroie messyn y thallooin: chamoo nee yn billey-feeyney tilgey yn mess eck ayns y vagher roish e traa, ta Chiarn ny flaunyssee dy ghra.

And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts.


As nee dy chooilley ashoon genmys shiuish bannit: son bee shiu cheer eunyssagh, ta Chiarn ny flaunyssee dy ghra.

And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the Lord of hosts.


Ta ny goan eu er ve barbagh m'oï, ta'n Chiarn dy ghra: foast ta shiu gra, Cre ta shin er loayrt wheesh shen dt'oï?

Your words have been stout against me, saith the Lord. Yet ye say, What have we spoken so much against thee?


Ta shiu er ghra, She fardail eh, dy hirveish Jee: as cre'n cosney te dooin, dy vel shin er reayll e lattyssyn, as dy vel shin er n'immeeaght dy trimshagh kiongoyrt rish Chiarn ny flaunyssee?

Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the Lord of hosts?


As nish ta shin genmys ny mooaralee maynrey: dy jarroo ta adsyn, ta cur rish drogh-yannoo, er ny hoiaghey seose, dy jarroo ta adsyn, ta brasnaghey Jee, er ny livrey.

And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered.


Eisht loayr adsyn, va goaill aggle roish y Chiarn, dy mennick ry-cheilley, as deaisht y Chiarn, as cheayll eh, as va lioar imraa scruit kiongoyrt rish, er y hon ocsyn va goaill aggle roish y Chiarn, as va gimraa er e ennym.

Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name.


As bee ad lhiam's, ta'n Chiarn, Jee ny flaunyssee, dy ghra, er y laa ta mee jannoo seose my chooid chostal, as beem's erreeishagh daue, myr ta dooinney erreeishagh da e vac, ta shirveish eh.

And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.


Eisht nee shiu chyndaa, as ver shiu lhiettrimmys eddyr y dooinney cairal, as mee-chairal; eddyr eshyn ta shirveish Jee as eshyn nagh vel shirveish eh.

Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.
