The Bible


Eisht loayr Yeesey rish y pobble, as rish e ostyllyn,

Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,


Gra, Ta ny scrudeyryn as ny Phariseeyn nyn soie ayns stoyl Voses.

Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:


Ooilley er-y-fa shen cre-erbee nee ad y oardaghey diu dy reayll, freill-jee, as jean-jee eh; agh ny jean-jee lurg ny obbraghyn oc: son t'ad gra, agh cha vel ad jannoo.

All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.


Son t'ad kiangley erraghyn tromey as doillee dy ve er nyn ymmyrkey, as dyn goyrt ad er geayltyn deiney, agh cha lhie ad hene wheesh mair roo dy hroggal ad.

For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.


Agh ooilley nyn obbraghyn t'ad dy yannoo dy ve cronnit liorish deiney: t'ad jannoo lhean ny phylactereeyn oc, as ceau chemmallyn mooarey er nyn gharmadyn,

But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,


As shynney lhieu ny ard ynnydyn-soie ec cuirraghyn, as ny ard-stuill ayns ny synagogueyn,

And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,


As sleih dy vannaghey daue ayns ny margaghyn, as dy ve enmyssit liorish deiney, Rabbi, Rabbi.

And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.


Agh ny bee-jee shiuish enmyssit Rabbi: son ta un vainshter eu, ta shen dy ghra, Creest, as ta shiuish ooilley nyn mraaraghyn.

But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.


As ny enmys-jee dooinney erbee ny mast' eu, Yn ayr: son ta un er ynrycan nyn Ayr, eer eh t'ayns niau.

And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.


Chamoo gow-jee erriu dy ve mainshteryn, son ta un er nyn Mainshter, eer Creest.

Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.


Agh eshyn syrjey ta nyn mast' eu, bee eh nyn shirveishagh.

But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.


Son quoi-erbee ta dy mooaralagh soiaghey seose eh-hene, bee eh er ny injillaghey, agh eshyn ta dy injillaghey eh-hene, bee eh er ny hoiaghey seose.

And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.


Agh smerg diuish scrudeyryn as Phariseeyn, chrauee oalsey; son ta shiu dooney seose reeriaght niau noi deiney: cha vel shiu goll stiagh shiu hene, as ta shiu dyn lhiettal adsyn ta aggindagh er goll stiagh.

But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.


Smerg diu scrudeyryn as Phariseeyn, chrauee-oalsey; son ta shiu cleiy fo thieyn mraane-treoghe, as son scaa dy chraueeaght lhiggey erriu dy ve kinjagh ayns padjer: shen-y-fa ta kerraghey strimmey nyn gour.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.


Smerg diu scrudeyryn as Phariseeyn, chrauee-oalsey; son ta shiu goll mygeayrt keayn as thalloo, dy hayrn agh un yoarree gys y chredjue eu hene, as tra t'eh er jyndaa hiu, ta shiu dy yannoo eh ny lhiannoo dy niurin ghaa wheesh smessey na shiu hene.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.


Smerg diu leeideilee doal, ta gra, Quoi-erbee looys liorish y chiamble, nagh vel eh veg: agh quoi-erbee looys liorish airh y chiamble, t'eh kianlt gys e vreearrey.

Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor


O shiuish vee-cheeayllee as doail: son quoi s'ooasle ta, yn airh, ny'n chiamble ta casherickey yn airh.

Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?


As quoi-erbee looys liorish yn altar, nagh vel eh veg: agh quoi-erbee looys liorish y gioot t'er yn altar, t'eh kianlt gys e vreearrey.

And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty.


O shiuish vee-cheayllee as doail: son quoi s'ooasle ta yn gioot, ny'n altar ta casherickey'n gioot?

Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift?


Quoi-erbee er-y-fa shen looys liorish yn altar, t'eh loo liorish yn altar hene, as liorish dy chooilley nhee ta chebbit er.

Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon.


As quoi-erbee looys liorish y chiamble, t'eh loo liorish y chiamble, as liorishyn ta cummal ayn.

And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein.


As eshyn looys liorish niau, t'eh loo liorish stoyl-reeoil Yee, as liorishyn ta ny hoie er.

And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.


Smerg diu scrudeyryn as Phariseeyn, chrauee-oalsey; son ta shiu geeck jaghee jeh mynthey, anise as cummin, agh cha vel shiu er chooilleeney currymyn s'ymmyrchee yn leigh, cairys, myghin as firrinys: ad shoh lhisagh shiu v'er n'yannoo, fegooish y chooid elley y aagail gyn jannoo.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.


Shiuish leeideilee doal, ta sheeley veue yn char-chuilag, agh sluggee shiu camel.

Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.


Smerg diu scrudeyryn as Phariseeyn, chrauee-oalsey: son ta shiu glenney yn cappan as y claare er cheu-mooie, agh cheu sthie t'ad lane dy hranlaase as dy neu-heeltys.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.


Pharisee ghoal, glen hoshiaght cheu-sthie yn chappan as y chlaare, dy vod y cheu-mooie ve glen myrgeddin

Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.


Smerg diu scrudeyryn as Phariseeyn, chrauee-oalsey; son ta shiu goll-rish oaiagh yn t'er nyn ghiallaghey, ta dy jarroo jeeaghyn aalin er cheu-mooie, agh cheu-sthie t'ad lane dy chraueyn ny merriu, as jeh dy chooilley eajeeys.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.


Shen myr ta shiuish neesht er cheu-mooie cairagh ayns shilley deiney, agh cheu-sthie ta shiu lane dy chraueeaght-oalsey as dy vee-chairys.

Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,


As gra, Dy beagh shinyn er ve ayns laghyn nyn ayraghyn, cha beagh shin er ve nyn baarteeasyn maroosyn ayns fuill ny phadeyryn.

And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.


Shen-y-fa ta shiu nyn veanishyn noi eu hene, ny nee shiuish yn sluight ocsyn hug ny phadeyryn dy baase.

Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.


Lhieen-jee seose eisht towse nyn ayraghyn.

Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.


Shiuish ard-nieughyn, sheeloghe dy ard-nieughyn, kys oddys shiu kerraghey niurin y scapail?

Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?


Shen-y-fa, cur-my-ner, ta mish coyrt hiu phadeyryn, as deiney creeney, as scrudeyryn; as paart jeu nee shiu y varroo, as y chrossey, as paart jeu nee shiu y scuitchal ayns nyn guaiylyn, as geiyrt ad veih ard-valley gys ard-valley:

Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:


Dy vod ooilley yn uill chairagh hie er deayrtey er y thalloo tuittym erriu, veih fuill Abel cairagh, gys fuill Zecharias, mac Varachias, eh ren shiu y varroo eddyr y chiamble as yn altar.

That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.


Dy firrinagh ta mee gra riu, Dy jig dy-chooilley nhee jeu shoh er y cheeloghe shoh.

Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.


O Yerusalem, Yerusalem, uss ta cur dy baase ny phadeyryn, as claghey adsyn t'er nyn goyrt er chaghteraght hood, cre cha mennick as va mish aggindagh v'er haglym dty chloan cooidjagh, myr ta kiark goaill stiagh e hein, fo my skianyn, as cha jinnagh shiu!

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not


Cur-my-ner, ta'n thie eu faagit diu follym-faase.

Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.


Son ta mee gra riu, Nagh vaik shiu mish maghey shoh, derrey jirrys shiu, Bannit ta eshyn ta cheet ayns ennym y Chiarn.

For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
