As haink eh gy-kione, erreish da Yeesey v'er loayrt ny goan shoh, dy jimmee eh veih Galilee, as dy daink eh gys ardjyn Yudea, er cheu elley dy Yordan:

And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judaea beyond Jordan;


As deiyr earrooyn mooarey dy leih er, ren eh ad y lheihys ayns shen.

And great multitudes followed him; and he healed them there.


Haink ny Phariseeyn huggey myrgeddin dy phrowal eh, as dooyrt ad rish, Vel eh lowal da dooinney e ven y chur ersooyl son dy chooilley oyr?

Dreggyr eshyn, as dooyrt eh roo, Nagh vel shiu er lhaih, eshyn chroo ad ec y toshiaght, dy chroo eh ad fyrrynagh as bwoirrynagh?

And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,


As dooyrt eh roo, Er-yn-oyr shoh nee dooinney faagail e ayr as e voir, as lhiannee eh gys e ven: as bee ad ny-neesht un eill.

And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?


Shen-y-fa cha vel ad ny sodjey jees, agh yn un eill. Cre-erbee er-y-fa shen ta Jee er chur cooidjagh, ny lhig da dooinney erbee y scarrey veih-my-cheilley.

Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.


Dooyrt adsyn rish, Cre'n-oyr eisht doardee Moses screeuyn-scarree y choyrt, as y ven y chur ersooyl?

They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?


Dooyrt eshyn roo, kyndagh rish creoghys nyn greeaghyn, lhow Moses diu nyn mraane y chur ersooyl: agh ec y toshiaght cha row eh myr shen.

He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.


As ta mish gra riu, Quoi-erbee scarrys rish e ven, cheu-mooie jeh son maarderys, as phoosys ben elley, t'eh brishey-poosey: as quoi-erbee phoosys ish ta scarrit, t'eh brishey poosey:

And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.


Dooyrt e ostyllyn rish, My she shoh yn chooish eddyr dooinney as e ven, cha vel eh mie dy phoosey.

His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry.


Agh dooyrt eshyn roo, Cha nee dy chooilley ghooinney oddys shen y ghoaill er, agh adsyn ny-lomarcan daue te er ny choyrt.

But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given.


Son ta deiney gennish ayn, rug myr shen veih brein nyn mayrey: as ta deiney gennish ayn, v'er nyn yannoo gennish liorish deiney: as ta deiney gennish ayn, t'er n'yannoo ad-hene gennish er graih reeriaght niau. Eshyn oddys shoh y ghoaill er, lhig da 'ghoaill eh.

For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.


Eisht hug ad lhieu huggey cloan veggey, dy chur e laueyn orroo, as dy vannaghey ad: as hug e ostyllyn oghsan daue.

Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them.


Agh dooyrt Yeesey, Sur-jee cloan aegey, as ny jean-jee ad y lhiettal dy heet hym's: son jeh nyn lheid ta reeriaght niau.

But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.


As hug eh e laueyn orroo, as jimmee eh veih shen.

And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence.


As cur-my-ner, haink fer huggey, as dooyrt eh rish, Vainshter vie, cre'n obbyr vie lhisins y yannoo dy chosney yn vea veayn?

And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?


As dooyrt eshyn rish, Cre'n-fa t'ou genmys mish mie? cha vel ayn ny ta mie, agh unnane, ynrycan Jee: agh my sailts goll stiagh ayns bea, freill ny annaghyn.

And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.


Dooyrt eshyn rish, Cre ny annaghyn? Dooyrt Yeesey, Cha jean oo dunverys, Cha brish oo poosey, Cha jean oo geid, Cha n'ymmyrk oo feanish foalsey,

He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,


Cur arrym da dty ayr as da dty voir: as, Ver oo graih da dty naboo myr dhyt hene.

Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.


Dooyrt y dooinney aeg rish, Ooilley ny annaghyn shoh ta mee er vreayll veih my aegid: cre sodjey t'orrym dy vannoo?

The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?


Dooyrt Yeesey rish, My sailt ve dy firrinagh mie, immee, as creck, as cur ny t'ayd da ny boghtyn, as bee berchys ayd ayns niau; as tar as eiyr orrym's.

Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.


Agh tra cheayll yn dooinney aeg yn raa shen, hie eh ersooyl dy trimshagh: son va state mooar hallooin echey.

But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.


Eisht dooyrt Yeesey rish e ostyllyn, Dy firrinagh ta mee gra riu, S'doillee hed dooinney berchagh stiagh ayns reeriaght niau.

Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.


As reesht ta mee gra riu, Te ny sassey da camel goll trooid croae snaidey, na da dooinney berchagh dy gholl stiagh ayns reeriaght Yee.

And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.


Tra cheayll e ostyllyn shoh, ghow ad yindys erskyn-towse, gra, Quoi eisht oddys ve er ny hauail?

When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?


Agh yeeagh Yeesey orroo, as dooyrt eh roo, Gys deiney ta shoh neu-phossible, agh da Jee ta dy chooilley nhee possible.

But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.


Eisht dreggyr Peddyr, as dooyrt eh rish, Cur-my-ner, ta shinyn er dreigeil ooilley, as er n'eiyrt ort's; cre yiow mainyn er-y-fa shen.

Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?


Dooyrt Yeesey roo, Dy firrinagh ta mee gra riu, 'Sy stayd noa, tra nee Mac y dooinney soie er stoyl-reeoil e ghloyr, dy jean shiuish myrgeddin t'er n'eiyrt orrym's soie er daa stoyl-reeoil yeig, briwnys daa heeloghe yeig Israel.

And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.


As dy chooilley unnane t'er hreigeil thieyn, ny braaraghyn, ny shayraghyn, ny ayr, ny moir, ny ben, ny cloan, ny thalloo, er graih m'ennym's, yiow ad keead filley, as eiraght ayns y vea veayn.

And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.


Agh bee ymmodee jeusyn ta hoshiaght, er-jerrey; as jeusyn ta er-jerrey hoshiaght.

But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.
