The Bible


Ec y traa cheddin haink e ostyllyn gys Yeesey, gra, Quoi syrjey ta ayns reeriaght niau?

At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?


As de?e Yeesey er lhiannoo beg, as hoie eh eh kiongoyrt roo,

And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,


As dooyrt eh, Dy firrinagh ta mee gra riu, Mannagh jean shiu chyndaa, as cheet dy ve myr cloan veggey, cha jed shiu stiagh ayns reeriaght niau.

And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.


Quoi-erbee er-y-fa shen, nee eh-hene y injillaghey myr y lhiannoo beg shoh, eh syrjey vees ayns reeriaght niau.

Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.


As quoi-erbee nee soiaghey jeh lheid y lhiannoo beg shoh ayns yn ennym aym's, t'eh jannoo soiaghey jeem's.

And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.


Agh quoi-erbee ver oyr da unnane jeh'n vooinjer veggey shoh ta credjal aynym's dy huittym (veih'n chredjue) veagh eh ny baare da dy beagh clagh-wyllin er ve croghit mysh e wannal, as eh dy ve baiht ayns diunid ny marrey.

But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.


Smerg da'n theihll kyndagh rish oyryn peccah: son shegin da nyn lheid 've ayn; agh smerg da'n dooinney, liorish ta'n loght cheet.

Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh


Shen-y-fa my ta dty laue ny dty chass hene dy dty hayrn gys yn olk, giare jeed, as tilg voïd ad; te ny share dhyt goll stiagh ayns bea croobagh ny baccagh, na daa laue ny daa chass y ve ayd, as oo dy ve tilgit ayns yn aile dy bragh farraghtyn.

Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.


As my ta dty hooill dy dty hayrn gys peccah, pluck assyd, as tilg void ee: te ny share dhyt goll stiagh ayns bea lesh un hooill, na daa hooill y ve ayd, as oo dy ve tilgit ayns aile niurin.

And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.


Cur-jee twoaie nagh soie shiu beg jeh unnane jeh'n vooinjer veggey shoh: son ta mee gra riu, dy vel ny ainleyn ocsyn ayns niau, kinjagh cur-my-ner eddin my Ayr flaunyssagh.

Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.


Son ta Mac y dooinney er jeet dy hauail shen ny va caillit.

For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.


Cre ta shiu smooinaghtyn? My ta keead keyrrey ec dooinney, as unnane jeu v'er n'gholl er-shaghryn, nagh vel eh faagail yn chiare-feed as yn nuy-jeig, as goll gys ny sleityn, as shirrey yn cheyrrey chailjey?

How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?


As my she shen dy vel eh dy gheddyn ee, dy firrinagh ta mee gra riu, dy vel eh goaill ny smoo dy voggey jeh'n cheyrrey shen, ny jeh'n chiare-feed as yn nuy-jeig, nagh jagh er-shaghryn.

And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.


Er yn aght cheddin, cha nee aigney nyn Ayr t'ayns niau eh, unnane jeh'n vooinjer veggey shoh dy herraghtyn.

Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.


Myrgeddin my nee dty vraar aggair dhyt, immee as insh da e oill eddyr shiu hene nyn-lomarcan: my eaishtys eh rhyt, t'ou er chosney dty vraar.

Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.


Agh mannagh n'eaisht eh rhyt, eisht gow mayrt fer ny jees elley, ayns beeal ghaa ny three dy eanishyn dy vod dy chooilley ockle ve jeant mie.

But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.


As mannagh der eh geill dauesyn, insh eh da'n agglish: agh mannagh der eh geill da'n agglish, jeeagh er myr an-chreestee as myr publican.

And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.


Dy firrinagh ta mee gra riu, Cre erbee nee shiuish y chiangley er y thalloo, bee eh kianlt ayns niau: as cre-erbee nee shiu y eaysley er y thalloo, bee eh er ny eaysley ayns niau.

Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.


Reesht ta mee gra riu, my nee jees jiuish coardail er y thalloo 'syn un aghin bee nyn aghin er ny chooilleeney liorish my Ayr t'ayns niau.

Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.


Son raad ta ghaa ny three er nyn jaglym cooidjagh ayns m'ennym's, shen y raad ta mish nyn mastey.

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.


Eisht haink Peddyr huggey, as dooyrt eh, Hiarn, cre cha mennick as ta orrym's leih da my vraar, tra yioym aggair liorish? nee choud as shiaght keayrtyn?

Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?


Dooyrt Yeesey rish, Cha vel mish gra rhyt, Choud as shiaght keayrtyn: agh choud as three-feed as jeih keayrtyn shiaght.

Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.


Shen-y-fa ta reeriaght niau er ny hoylaghey gys ree dy row, baillish coontey rish e harvaantyn.

Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.


As tra v'eh er n'yannoo toshiaght dy choontey, haink fer huggey va lhiastyn da jeih thousane talent.

And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents.


Agh son wheesh as nagh row echey dy eeck, doardee e hiarn eh dy ve creckit as e ven, as e chloan, as ooilley ny v'echey, as e eeaghyn dy ve eeckit.

But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made.


Huitt y charvaant er-y-fa shen sheese, as ghuee eh er, gra, Cur daill dou, Hiarn, as nee'm ooilley y eeck dhyt.

The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.


Eisht va chiarn y charvaant shen er ny veiyghey lesh chymmey, as ren eh feaysley er, as leih eh da ny v'eh dy lhiastyn.

Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.


Agh hie yn charvaant cheddin magh, as hooar eh fer jeh e heshaghyn-sharvaant va lhiastyn keead ping da: as haare eh greme er, as ghow eh eh er y scoarnagh, gra, Eeck shen ny t'ou dy lhiastyn.

But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest.


As huitt e heshey-harvaant sheese ec e chassyn, as ghuee eh er, gra, Cur daill dou as nee'm ooilley y eeck dhyt.

And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.


Agh cha lhiggagh eh lesh: agh hie eh, as hilg eh eh ayns pryssoon, derrey eeckagh eh ny v'eh dy lhiastyn.

And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.


Myr shen tra honnick e heshaghyn-sharvaant kys hie eh er, ghow ad dy feer olk rish, as haink ad, as dinsh ad da nyn jiarn ooilley ny va er daghyrt.

So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done.


Eisht deïe e hiarn er, as dooyrt eh rish, O ghrogh harvaant, leih mish dhyt's yn slane lhiastynys shen, er-yn-oyr dy ren oo lheid yn aghin hym:

Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me:


Er yn aght shoh myrgeddin nee my Ayr flaunyssagh riuish, mannagh leihee shiu veih nyn greeaghyn dy chooilley ghooinney da e vraar e loghtyn.

Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?


As va e hiarn jymmoosagh, as livrey eh seose eh gys laue y tidoor ny phryssoonagh, derrey eeckagh eh ooilley ny v'eh dy lhiastyn.

And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.


Er yn aght shoh myrgeddin nee my Ayr flaunyssagh riuish, mannagh leihee shiu veih nyn greeaghyn dy chooilley ghooinney da e vraar e loghtyn.

So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.
