The Bible


As tra v'ad tayrn er-gerrey da Jerusalem, as dy row ad er jeet gys Bethphage, gys cronk ny Oliveyn, hug Yeesey jees jeh e ostyllyn er chaghteraght,

And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples,


As dooyrt eh roo, Immee-jee gys y balley-cheerey ta shiu dy akin, as chelleeragh yiow shiu assyl kianlt as lhiy maree: feayshil-jee as cur-jee lhieu ad hym's.

Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me.


As my loayrys dooinney erbee veg riu, abbyr-jee shiuish, Ta feme ec y Chiarn orroo; as chelleeragh lhiggee eh yn raad daue.

And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them.


Va ooilley shoh jeant, dy voddagh shen ve cooilleenit va loayrit liorish y phadeyr gra,

All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying,


Insh-jee da inneen Sion, Cur-my-ner, ta dty ree cheet hood dy imlee, as ny hoie er assyl, as er lhiy sharragh assyl.

Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.


As hie adsyn rhymboo, as ren ad myr va Yeesey er n'oardaghey daue.

And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,


As hug ad lhieu yn assyl as y lhiy, as hug ad orroo nyn eaddeeyn, as hug ad eshyn ny hoie orroo.

And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon.


As ren earrooyn mooarey dy leih skeayley nyn gharmadyn er y raad; yiare feallagh elley banglaneyn jeh ny biljyn, as skeayl ad ad er y raad.

And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way.


As deïe yn pobble hie roish, as adsyn haink ny yeï, gra, Hosanna gys mac Ghavid: bannit t'eshyn ta cheet ayns ennym y Chiarn, Hosanna ayns yn yrjid.

And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.


As tra v'eh er jeet gys Jerusalem, va ooilley yn ard-valley ayns anvea, gra, Quoi eh shoh?

And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?


Dooyrt y pobble, Shoh Yeesey yn phadeyr, ta veih Nazareth ayns Galilee.

And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.


As hie Yeesey stiagh ayns chiamble Yee, as deiyr eh magh ooilley adsyn va creck as kionnaghey ayns y chiamble, as hilg eh harrish ny buird ocsyn va caghlaa argid, as ny stuill ocsyn va creck calmaneyn.

And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,


As dooyrt eh roo, Te scruit, Bee my hie's enmyssit thie yn phadjer, agh ta shiuish er n'yannoo eh ny ooig dy vaarlee.

And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.


As haink ny doail as ny croobee huggey gys y chiamble, as ren eh ad y lheihys.

And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.


As tra honnick ny ard-saggyrtyn as ny scruderyn ny reddyn yindyssagh v'eh dy yannoo, as ny paitchyn geamagh ayns y chiamble, as gra, Hosanna gys mac Ghavid, v'ad feer chorree.

And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the son of David; they were sore displeased,


As dooyrt ad rish, Vel oo clashtyn cre t'ad shoh dy ghra? Dooyrt Yeesey roo, Ta mee; nagh lhaih shiuish rieau, Magh ass beill oikanyn as cloan er y cheeagh t'ou er gheddyn moylley firrinagh?

And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?


As daag eh ad, as hie eh magh ass yn ard-valley gys Bethany, as ghow eh aaght ayns shen.

And he left them, and went out of the city into Bethany; and he lodged there.


Nish ayns y voghrey, myr v'eh goll reesht gys yn ard-valley, v'eh accryssagh.

Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered.


As tra honnick eh billey-figgagh er y raad, haink eh huggey, as cha dooar eh monney er, agh ynrycan duillagyn, as dooyrt eh rish, Nar aase mess erbee ort's veih shoh magh er son dy bragh. As chelleeragh ren y billey-figgagh fioghey ersooyl.

And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.


As tra honnick e ostyllyn shoh, ghow ad yindys, gra, Cre cha leah as ta'n billey figgagh er chreenagh roish?

And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away


Dreggyr Yeesey, as dooyrt eh roo, Dy firrinagh ta mee gra riu, My vees shiu credjuagh, as gyn ve fo mee-ourys erbee, nee shiu cha nee ynrycan shoh ta jeant rish y villey-figgagh, agh my jir shiu rish y slieau shoh, Bee er dty scughey, as er dty hilgey ayns y cheayn; bee eh er ny yannoo.

Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.


As cre-erbee nee shiu geearree ayns padjer, lesh credjue, yiow shiu eh.

And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.


As tra v'eh er jeet stiagh ayns y chiamble, haink ny ard-saggyrtyn as shanstyr yn phobble huggey myr v'eh gynsaghey, gra, Cre'n phooar t'ayd's dy yannoo ny reddyn shoh? as quoi hug yn phooar shoh dhyt?

And when he was come into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came unto him as he was teaching, and said, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority?


As dreggyr Yeesey as dooyrt eh roo, Fênyms jiuish un red; as my inshys shiu dou eh, inshym's myrgeddin diuish, cre'n phooar t'aym dy yannoo ny reddyn shoh.

And Jesus answered and said unto them, I also will ask you one thing, which if ye tell me, I in like wise will tell you by what authority I do these things.


Bashtey Ean, cre voish ve? veih niau, ny veih deiney? As loayr ad nyn mast' oc hene, gra, My jir mayd, Veih niau; jir eshyn rooin, Cre'n-fa eisht nagh chred shiu eh?

The baptism of John, whence was it? from heaven, or of men? And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say unto us, Why did ye not then believe him?


Agh my jir mayd, Veih deiney; ta aggle orrin roish y pobble; son ta dy chooilley ghooinney goaill Ean son phadeyr.

But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the people; for all hold John as a prophet.


As dreggyr ad Yeesey, as dooyrt ad, Cha vod mayd ginsh. As dooyrt eh roo, Chamoo ta mish ginsh diuish, cre'n phooar t'aym, dy yannoo ny reddyn shoh.

And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot tell. And he said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.


Agh cre ta shiu dy smooinaghtyn? Va dooinney dy row as daa vac echey, as haink eh gys yn er-shinney, as dooyrt eh, Vac, Immee as obbree jiu ayns my gharey-feeyney.

But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard.


Dreggyr eshyn as dooyrt eh, Cha jem: agh ny lurg shen ghow eh arrys, as hie eh.

He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went.


As haink eh gys e vac saa, as loayr eh rish myrgeddin. As dreggyr eshyn, as dooyrt eh, Hem, vainshter; as cha jagh eh.

And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not.


Quoi jeu shoh ny-neesht ren aigney e ayrey? Dooyrt adsyn rish, Yn mac shinney. Dooyrt Yeesey roo, Dy firrinagh ta mee gra riu, dy jed ny publicanee as ny drogh. vraane stiagh ayns reeriaght Yee reue-ish.

Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.


Son haink Ean hiuish ayns raad y chairys, as cha chred shiu eh: agh chred ny publicanee as ny drogh-vraane eh. As ga dy vaik shiu shoh, cha ghow shiu arrys ny lurg shen, dy chredjal ayn.

For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him.


Eaisht-jee rish coraa-dorraghey elley: Va fer-thie dy row ren garey-feeyney y hoiaghey, as ren eh cleigh y yannoo mysh, as chleiy eh press-feeyney ayn, as hrog eh toor, as hoie eh eh rish tannys, as hie eh gys cheer foddey.

Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:


As tra va earish ny mess tayrn er-gerrey, hug eh e ir-vooinjerey gys y tannys, dy gheddyn jeh'n mess echey.

And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.


As ghow yn tannys e ir-vooinjerey, as woaill ad fer, as varr ad fer elley, as chlagh ad fer elley.

And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.


Reesht hug eh magh sharvaantyn elley ny s'lhee na'n chied eallagh: as ghell ad roosyn er yn aght cheddin.

Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.


Agh er-jerrey ooilley hug eh huc e vac, gra, Bee ad arrymagh da my vac.

But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.


Agh tra honnick y tannys yn mac dooyrt ad nyn mast' oc hene, Shoh'n eirey, tar-jee, lhig dooin eh y varroo, as bee'n eiraght echey lhien hene.

But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.


As ghow ad eh, as hilg ad eh magh ass y gharey-feeyney, as varr ad eh.

And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.


Tra hig er-y-fa shen Chiarn y gharey-feeyney, Cre nee eh rish yn tannys shen?

When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?


Dooyrt adsyn rish, Stroie-ee eh fegooish myghin ny drogh-gheiney shen, as nee eh soiaghey yn garey-feeyney rish tannys elley, livrey-ys ny messyn da ayns nyn imbagh cooie.

They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.


Dooyrt Yeesey roo, Nagh lhaih shiu rieau ayns goo Yee, Yn chlagh ren ny masoonee y vee-lowal, ta'n chlagh cheddin er jeet dy ve yn ard-chlagh chorneilagh: shoh jannoo yn Chiarn, as te yindyssagh ayns ny sooillyn ainyn?

Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?


Shen-y-fa ta mish gra riu, Dy bee reeriaght Yee er ny ghoaill veueish, as er ny choyrt da ashoon ymmyrkys magh yn mess echey.

Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.


As quoi-erbee huittys er y chlagh shen bee eh er ny vroo: agh er quoi-erbee huittys y chlagh shen, nee ee cha meen as joan jeh.

And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.


As tra va ny ard-saggyrtyn as ny Phariseeyn erreish ny coraaghyn-dorraghey echey y chlashtyn, dennee ad dy nee jeusyn v'eh loayrt.

And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them.


Agh tra v'ad shleeuit er goaill eh v'ad ayns aggle roish y pobble, er-yn-oyr dy row ad jeeaghyn er dy ve ny adeyr.

But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet.
