Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus;

These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:


Agh immee-jee hoshiaght gys kirree cailjey thie Israel.

But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.


As myr vees shiu goll, jean-jee preacheil, gra, Ta reeriaght niau er-gerrey.

And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.


Slaanee-jee sleih chingey, glen-jee ny louranee, jean-jee ny merriu y aa-vioghey, as drogh-spyrrydyn y chastey: nastee ta shiu er gheddyn, as dy nastee cur-jee veue.

Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.


Ny kiare-jee son airh, ny argid, ny prash y ve eu ayns nyn sporranyn:

Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,


Ny spagey son y raad, ny daa chooat, ny braagyn, ny lorg: (son ta'n obbree toilliu e veaghey).

Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.


As ard-valley ny balley erbee dy jed shiu stiagh ayn, Jean-jee briaght quoi ayn ta feeu, as marishyn gow-jee aaght derrey hed shiu reue.

And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.


As tra hed shiu stiagh ayns thie, bannee-jee daue.

And when ye come into an house, salute it.


As my vees y thie feeu, lhig da'n shee eu cheet er: agh mannagh bee eh feeu, lhig da'n shee eu chyndaa hiu hene reesht.

And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.


As quoi-erbee nagh der oltaghey bea diu, as nagh der geill da ny goan eu: tra aagys shiu yn thie ny'n ard-valley shen, crie-jee veue joan nyn goshey.

And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.


Dy firrinagh ta mee gra riu, Dy bee eh ny sassey da cheer Sodom as Gomorrah, ec laa ny briwnys, na da'n ard-valley shen.

Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.


Cur-my-ner ta mish dy choyrt shiu magh myr kirree mastey moddee oaldey: Bee-jee er-y-fa shen tastagh myr ard-nieughyn, as ôney myr calmaneyn.

Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.


Agh bee-jee er nyn dwoaie roish deiney, son livrey-ee ad shiu seose gys ny coonceilyn, as scuitchee ad shiu ayns nyn quaiylyn oc.

As bee shiu er nyn goyrt fenish kiannoortyn as reeaghyn er y choontey aym's, myr shoh gymmyrkey feanish dauesyn, as da ny Ashoonee.

And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.


Agh tra ver ad stiagh shiu, ny bee-jee imneagh cre'n aght, ny cre nee shiu gra, son bee eh er ny choyrt diu ayns yn oor cheddin cre nee shiu y ghra.

But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.


Son cha nee shiuish ta loayrt, agh spyrryd yn Ayr eu ta loayrt ayndiu.

For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.


As livreyee braar seose e vraar gys baase, as yn ayr e lhiannoo: as nee cloan girree magh noi nyn ayr as nyn moir, as bee ad feanishyn baaish orroo.

The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.

It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?


Ny gow-jee er-y-fa shen aggle roue: son cha vel nhee erbee follit nagh jir gys soilshey: ny nhee erbee keillit, nagh jig er-ash.

Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.


Quoi-erbee er-y-fa shen ghoys rhym's kiongoyrt rish deiney, goym's rishyn myrgeddin kiongoyrt rish my Ayr t'ayns niau.

And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.


Eshyn ta ny s'graihee er ayr ny moir na orrym's, cha vel eh feeu jee'm: as eshyn ta ny s'graihee er mac ny inneen na orrym's cha vel eh feeu jee'm.

He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.


As eshyn nagh jean e chrosh y ymmyrkey, as geiyrt orrym's, cha vel eh feeu jee'm.

And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.


Eshyn ta aggindagh e vioys y hauail, caillee eh eh: agh eshyn chaillys e vioys er my ghraih's, nee eh eh y hauail.

And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.
