Nish tra rug Yeesey ayns Bethlehem dy Yudea, rish lhing ree Herod, cur-my-ner haink deiney-creeney veih'n shiar gys Jerusalem,

Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,


Gra, Cre vel ree ny Hewnyn t'er jeet er y theihll? son honnick shin y rollage echey ayns y shiar, as ta shin er jeet dy chur ooashley da.

Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.


Tra cheayll ree Herod shoh, v'eh dy mooar seaghnit, as ooilley Jerusalem mârish.

When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.


As tra v'eh er symney cooidjagh ooilley ny ard-saggyrtyn, as scrudeyryn y phobble, denee eh jeu cre'n raad va Creest dy heet er y theihll.

And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.


As dooyrt adsyn rish, Ayns Bethlehem dy Yudea: son shoh myr te scruit liorish y phadeyr:

And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,


As uss Vethlehem ayns cheer Yudea, cha nee oo sloo ta mastey princeyn Yuda: son assyd's hig Kiannoort nee reill my phobble Israel.

And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.


Eisht hug Herod fys follit er ny deiney creeney, as deysht eh ad dy imneagh mychione y traa haink yn rollage rish.

Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.


As hug eh ad gys Bethlehem, gra, Immee-jee, as shir-jee magh dy jeidjagh son y lhiannoo, as tra vees shiu er gheddyn magh eh, tar-jee lesh fys hym's, dy voddym's neesht cheet as ooashley 'choyrt da.

And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.


Erreish daue v'er chlashtyn y ree, jimmee ad rhymboo, as cur-my-ner hie yn rollage honnick ad ayns y shiar er e toshiaght roue, derrey haink ee, as hass ee erskyn yn ynnyd raad va'n lhiannoo.

When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.


Tra honnick ad y rollage, va boggey erskyn-towse orroo.

When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.


As goll stiagh 'sy thie, hooar ad y lhiannoo marish Moirrey e voir, as gliooney sheese, hug ad ooashley da as fosley ny tashtaghyn oc, heb ad giootyn da; airh, as frankincense, as myrrh.

And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.


As myr va Jee er chur raaue daue ayns ashlish, gyn ad dy hyndaa gys Herod, ghow ad raad elley gys nyn jeer hene.

And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.


As tra v'ad er n'immeeaght, cur-my-ner haink ainle y Chiarn gys Joseph ayns ashlish, gra, Trog ort, gow yn lhiannoo as e voir, cosne royd gys Egypt, as fuirree ayns shen derrey ver-yms fys hood: son shirree Herod y lhiannoo dy stroie eh.

And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.


Eisht dirree eh, as ghow eh yn lhiannoo, as e voir ayns yn oie, as hie eh roish er-chea gys Egypt:

When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:


As shen-y raad v'eh derrey baase Herod: as shoh myr va cooilleenit shen loayr y Chiarn liorish y phadeyr, gra, Magh ass Egypt deïe mee er my vac.

And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.


Eisht Herod toiggal dy row eh mollit liorish ny deiney-creeney, v'eh erskyn-towse eulyssagh, as hug eh magh sarey, as varr eh ooilley ny lhiennoo-mec v'ayns Bethlehem, as ayns ooilley ny ardjyn shen, veih daa vlein dy eash as fo, corrym rish y traa v'eh dy imneagh er vriaght jeh ny deiney creeney.

Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men.


Shen y traa va cooilleenit ny va loayrit liorish Jeremy yn phadeyr, gra,

Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying,


Ayns Rama va eam treih er ny chlashtyn, yllaghey as keayney, as dobberan hrimshagh, Rachel keayney son e cloan, as gobbal dy ve er ny gherjaghey, er-yn-oyr nagh row ad er-mayrn.

In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.


Agh lurg baase Herod, cur-my-ner haink ainle y Chiarn ayns ashlish gys Joseph ayns Egypt,

But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,


Gra, Irree, as gow yn lhiannoo as e voir, as immee gys cheer Israel: son t'adsyn marroo va shleeuit er bioys y lhiannoo.

Saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead which sought the young child's life.


As dirree eh, as ghow eh yn lhiannoo as e voir, as haink eh gys cheer Israel.

And he arose, and took the young child and his mother, and came into the land of Israel.


Agh clashtyn dy row Archelaus reill ayns Judea, ayns ynnyd e ayr Herod, va aggle er dy gholl gys shen: agh myr va Jee er chur roish ayns ashlish, hyndaa eh gys ardjyn Ghalilee.

But when he heard that Archelaus did reign in Judaea in the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go thither: notwithstanding, being warned of God in a dream, he turned aside into the parts of Galilee:


As jimmee eh dy chummal ayns ard-valley enmyssit Nazareth: as shoh myr va cooilleenit shen loayr ny phadeyryn, Bee eh enmyssit ny Nazarene.

And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.
