The Bible


Yn laa cheddin hie Yeesey magh ass y thie, as hoie eh sheese rish oirr ny marrey.

The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.


As va earrooyn mooarey dy leih er nyn jaglym cooidjagh huggey, myr shen dy jagh eh er board lhong, as hoie eh sheese, as va ooilley yn pobble nyn shassoo er y traie.

And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.


As loayr eh mooarane reddyn roo ayns coraaghyn-dorraghey, gra, Cur-jee my-ner, hie correyder magh dy chuirr.

And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;


As myr v'eh cuirr, huitt paart jeh'n rass rish oirr y raad, as haink ny eeanlee, as d'ee ad seose eh.

And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:


Huitt paart er thalloo cloaie, raad nagh row mooarane ooir as daase eh er-y-chooyl, er-yn-oyr nagh row diunid hallooin echey:

Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:


As tra ghow yn ghrian niart, ve fiojit; as er-yn-oyr nagh row eh er n'ghoaill fraue, ren eh shymley ersooyl.

And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.


As huitt paart mastey drineyn: as daase ny drineyn seose as phloogh ad eh.

And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:


Agh huitt cooid elley jeh ayns thalloo mie, as dymmyrk eh mess, paart keead-filley paart three-feed-filley, as paart jeih fillaghyn as feed.

But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.


Eshyn ta cleayshyn echey dy chlashtyn, lhig da clashtyn.

Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.


As haink e ostyllyn huggey, as dooyrt ad rish, Cre'n-fa t'ou loayrt roo ayns coraaghyn-dorraghey?

And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?


Dreggyr eshyn, as dooyrt eh roo, Er-yn-oyr dy vel eh er ny choyrt diuish folliaghtyn reeriaght niau y hoiggal, agh dauesyn cha vel eh er ny choyrt.

He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.


Son quoi-erbee ta echey, dasyn vees er ny choyrt, as bee towse s'feoiltey er ny choyrt da: agh quoi-erbee nagh vel echey, veihsyn vees shen ny ta echey, er ny ghoaill ersooyl.

For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.


Shen-y-fa ta mee loayrt roo ayns coraaghyn-dorraghey: er-yn-oyr, ga dy vel ad fakin, cha vel ad cur-my-ner: as clashtyn cha vel ad cur geill, chamoo t'ad toiggal.

Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.


As ayndoosyn ta cooilleenit phadeyrys Esaias, ta gra, Ayns clashtyn, cluinnee shiu, agh cha jean shiu toiggal: as ayns fakin, hee shiu, agh cha der shiu my-ner

And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:


Son ta cree yn phobble shoh er n'aase roauyr, as ta ny cleayshyn oc moal dy chlashtyn, as ny sooillyn oc t'ad er n'yeigh; er-aggle dy vaikagh ad lesh nyn sooillyn, as dy gluinnagh ad lesh nyn gleayshyn, as dy doiggagh ad lesh nyn gree, as dy beagh ad er nyn jyndaa, as dy jinnin ad y lheihys.

For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.


Agh bannit ta ny sooillyn euish, son t'ad fakin, as ny cleayshyn eu, son t'ad clashtyn.

But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.


Son dy firrinagh ta mee gra riu, dy vel ymmodee phadeyryn as deiney cairagh er ve aignagh dy akin ny reddyn ta shiuish dy akin, agh cha vel ad er vakin ad: as dy chlashtyn ny reddyn ta shiuish dy chlashtyn, agh cha vel ad er chlashtyn ad.

For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.


Clasht-jee er-y-fa shen coraa-dorraghey yn chorreyder.

Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.


Quoi-erbee ta clashtyn goo yn reeriaght, as nagh vel dy hoiggal eh, ta'n drogh er cheet, as tayrtyn lesh shen ny va cuirt ayns e chree: shoh eh ghow yn rass rish oirr y raad.

When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.


Agh eshyn ghow yn rass ayns ynnydyn claghagh, shen eh ta clashtyn y goo, as jeeragh lesh boggey dy ghoaill eh:

But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;


Foast cha vel fraue echey ayn hene agh t'eh cummal rish son tammylt: agh tra ta seaghyn as tranlaase cheet er, er coontey yn ghoo chelleeragh ta e chredjue failleil.

Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.


Eshyn myrgeddin ghow yn rass mastey ny drineyn, yn fer ta clashtyn y goo: as ta kiarail y theihll shoh, as molteyrys berchys plooghey yn goo, as te cheet dy ve neu-vessoil.

He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.


Agh eshyn ghow yn rass ayns thalloo mie, shen eh ta clashtyn y goo as dy hoigg eh, as t'eh tilgey mess, as gymmyrkey, paart keead-filley, paart three feed, as paart jeih fillaghyn as feed.

But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.


Coraa-dorraghey elley loayr eh roo gra, Ta reeriaght niau er ny hoylaghey gys dooinney chuirr rass mie ayns e vagher:

Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:


Agh choud as va sleih nyn gadley haink e noid, as chuirr eh coggyl mastey y churnaght, as jimmee eh roish.

But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.


Agh tra va'n chass er n'aase, as e n'gholl my-yeish, eisht haink y coggyl rish myrgeddin.

But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.


Er shen haink fir-vooinjerey yn er-thie, as dooyrt ad rish, Vainshter, nagh chuirr uss rass mie ayns dty vagher? cre voish eisht ta'n coggyl t'ayn?

So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?


Dooyrt eshyn roo, Noid t'er n'yannoo shoh. Dooyrt ny fir-vooinjerey rish, Nailt eisht shin dy gholl as dy ghaartlian ass eh?

He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?


As dooyrt eshyn, Cha naill-ym; er aggle ayns gaartlian yn coggyl, dy n'astyrt shiu yn churnaght myrgeddin ass ny fraueyn mârish.

But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.


Lhig-jee daue ny-neesht gaase cooidjagh derrey'n fouyr: as ayns earish yn ouyr jir-yms rish ny beayneeyn, Chymsee-jee cooidjagh hoshiaght yn coggyl ayns bunneeyn ry-hoi lostey; agh tayrn-jee yn churnaght stiagh ayns my hoalt.

Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.


Coraa-dorraghey elley loayr eh roo, gra, Ta reeriaght niau goll-rish grine dy rass mustard ghow dooinney, as chuirr eh ayns e vagher eh.

Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:


As ga dy nee eh sloo jeh dy chooilley rass: foast tra te er n'aase, eh smoo ta mastey lossreeyn, as te cheet dy ve ny villey: myr shen dy vel eeanlee yn aer cheet as goaill fastee ayns ny banglaneyn echey.

Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.


Coraa-dorraghey elley loayr eh roo, Ta reeriaght niau goll-rish soorid ren ben y ghoaill as coodaghey seose ayns three towseyn dy veinn, derrey va'n clane soorit.

Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.


Ooilley ny goan shoh loayr Yeesey rish y pobble ayns coraaghyn-dorraghey, as fegooish coraa-dorraghey, cha loayr eh roo:

All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:


As shoh myr va cooilleenit shen loayr y phadeyr, gra, Foshlym my veeal dy loayrt coraaghyn-dorraghey, soilshee-ym magh reddyn t'er ve follit er-dy hoshiaght y theihll.

That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.


Eisht hug Yeesey yn cheshaght ersooyl, as hie eh stiagh ayns y thie: as haink huggey adsyn va sheer mârish, gra, Soilshee dooin coraa dorraghey coggyl yn vagheragh.

Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.


Dreggyr eshyn as dooyrt eh roo Eshyn chuirr yn rass mie, Mac yn dooinney:

He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;


Yn magher yn seihll: yn rass mie cloan y reeriaght: agh y coggyl cloan y drogh-er:

The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;


Yn noid chuirr ad yn Jouyl: yn fouyr jerrey yn theihll: as ny beayneeyn ny ainleyn.

The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.


Myr, er-y-fa shen, ta'n coggyl er ny haglym, as er ny lostey ayns yn aile; shen myr vees eh ec jerrey'n theihll.

As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.


Ver yn Mac dooinney magh e ainleyn, as teiyee ad ass e reeriaght dy chooilley nhee ta tayrn sleih gys peccah, as adsyn ta cur rish yn olk;

The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;


As tilgee ad ad ayns coirrey aileagh: ayns shen vees keayney as snaggeraght feeacklyn.

And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.


Eisht nee yn chloan chairagh soilshean magh myr y ghrian, ayns reeriaght nyn Ayrey. Eshyn ta cleayshyn echey dy chlashtyn, lhig da clashtyn.

Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.


Reesht ta reeriaght niau goll-rish berchys follit ayns magher: yn verchys cheddin tra ta dooinney dy gheddyn magh t'eh dy choodaghey eh, as ayns boggey jeh t'eh goll as creck ooilley ny t'echey, as kionnaghey yn magher cheddin.

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.


Reesht ta reeriaght niau dy ve soylit rish marchan va shirrey pearlyn costal:

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:


As tra v'eh er gheddyn un phearl dy phrice vooar, hie eh, as chreck eh ooilley ny v'echey, as chionnee eh eh.

Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.


Reesht ta reeriaght niau goll-rish lieen va cuirt 'sy cheayn as haare jeh dy chooilley horch dy eeast.

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:


As tra ve lane, hayrn ad eh gys thalloo, as hoie ad sheese, as haggil ad yn eeast mie ayns siyn, agh cheau ad yn drogh eeast ersooyl.

Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.


Shen myr vees eh ec jerrey yn theihll: hig ny ainleyn magh, as scarree ad yn vee chrauee veih mastey yn chloan chairal;

So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,


As tilgee ad ad ayns coirrey dy aile: ayns shen vees keayney as snaggeraght feeacklyn.

And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.


Dooyrt Yeesey roo, Vel shiu er hoiggal ooilley ny reddyn shoh? Dooyrt adsyn rish, Ta shin, Hiarn.

Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.


Eisht dooyrt eh roo, Shen-y-fa ta dy chooilley scrudeyr, ta ynsit gys reeriaght niau, goll-rish dooinney ta ny er-thie (mie) ta cur magh ass e hashtaghyn reddyn noa as shenn.

Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.


As haink eh gy-kione, tra va Yeesey erreish ny coraaghyn-dorraghey shoh y loayrt, dy jimmee eh veih shen.

And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence.


As tra v'eh er jeet gys e heer hene, dynsee eh ad ayns ny synagogueyn oc, ayns wheesh as dy row ad atchimagh, as dy dooyrt ad, Cre voish ta creenaght as mirrillyn y dooinney shoh?

And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?


Nagh nee shoh mac y teyr? Nagh vel e voir enmyssit Moirrey, as e vraaraghyn Jamys as Joses, as Simon, as Judas?

Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?


As nagh vel ny shayraghyn echey ooilley marin? cre voish eisht ta ooilley ny reddyn t'ec y dooinney shoh?

And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?


As v'ad jymmoosagh rish. Agh dooyrt Yeesey roo, Cha vel phadeyr gyn ooashley, agh ayns e heer hene, as ayns e hie hene.

And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house.


As cha nhimmey mirril dobbree eh ayns shen, kyndagh rish y vee-chredjue oc.

And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.
