The Bible


As haink eh gy-kione erreish da Yeesey ve er loayrt ooilley ny goan shoh, dy dooyrt eh rish e ostyllyn,

And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said unto his disciples,


Ta fys eu lurg daa laa dy bee feailley ny caisht, as dy bee yn Mac dooinney er ny vrah dy ve er ny chrossey.

Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.


Eisht va ny ard-saggyrtyn as ny scrudeyryn as shanstyr y phobble er nyn jaglym cooidjagh gys thie yn ard-saggyrt va enmyssit Caiaphas.

Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas,


As hug ad nyn goyrle dy cheilley, my chione Yeesey y ghoaill dy follit, as dy choyrt eh gy-baase.

And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill him.


Agh dooyrt ad, Cha nee er laa ny feailley, er-aggle dy bee irree-magh ayn mastey'n pobble.

But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar among the people.


Nish tra va Yeesey ayns Bethany, ayns thie Simon yn lourane,

Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper,


Haink huggey ben lesh box alabaster dy ooil feer chostal, as gheayrt ee eh er e chione, myr v'eh ny hoie ec bee.

There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat.


Agh tra honnick e ostyllyn shoh, v'ad jymmoosagh, gra, Cre'n-fa va'n jummal shoh jeant?

But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste?


Son oddagh yn ooil shoh v'er ny ve creckit son mooarane, as er ny choyrt da ny boghtyn.

For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor.


Tra hoig Yeesey shoh, dooyrt eh roo, Kys dy vel shiu boirey yn ven? son t'ee er n'yannoo obbyr vie orrym's.

When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me.


Son ta ny boghtyn eu kinjagh meriu, agh mish cha vel eu kinjagh.

For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.


Son liorish dy vel ee er gheayrtey yn ooil shoh er n y chorp, t'ee er n'yannoo eh cour my oanluckey.

For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial.


Dy firrinagh ta mee gra riu, Cre theihll y raad vees yn sushtal shoh er ny phreacheil, dy bee shoh myrgeddin ta'n ven shoh er n'yannoo, er ny imraa ayns cooinaghtyn j'ee.

Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.


Eisht hie fer jeh'n daa ostyl yeig, va enmyssit Yuaase Iscariot, gys ny ard-saggyrtyn.

Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests,


As dooyrt eh roo, Cre ver shiu dooys, as livrey-ym diuish eh? As choard ad rish son jeih peeshyn as feed dy argid.

And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.


As veih'n traa shen v'eh shirrey caa dy vrah eh.

And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.


Nish er y chied laa jeh feailley yn arran-caisht, haink e ostyllyn gys Yeesey as dooyrt ad rish, Cre'n raad sailt shin dy yannoo aarloo er dty hon dy ee yn eayn caisht?

Now the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover?


As dooyrt eh, Gow-jee gys yn ard-valley gys lheid y dooinney shen, as abbyr-jee rish, Ta'n mainshter gra, Ta my hraa er gerrey, freill-ym y chaisht ec dty hie's marish my ostyllyn.

And he said, Go into the city to such a man, and say unto him, The Master saith, My time is at hand; I will keep the passover at thy house with my disciples.


As ren adsyn myr va Yeesey er n'oardaghey daue, as daarlee ad yn eayn-caisht.

And the disciples did as Jesus had appointed them; and they made ready the passover.


Nish tra va'n fastyr er-jeet, hoie eh sheese marish yn daa ostyl yeig.

Now when the even was come, he sat down with the twelve.


As myr v'ad gee, dooyrt eh, Dy firrinagh ta mee gra riu, dy jean fer jiuish mish y vrah.

And as they did eat, he said, Verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.


As v'ad dy mooar seaghnit, as ren ad toshiaght dagh fer jeu dy ghra rish, Hiarn, nee orrym's t'ou cheet?

And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began every one of them to say unto him, Lord, is it I?


As dansoor eshyn, gra, eshyn ta thummey e laue marym ayns y chlaare, eh shen nee mish y vrah.

And he answered and said, He that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray me.


Ta Mac y dooinney goll, myr te scruit jeh: agh smerg da'n dooinney shen liorish vees Mac y dooinney er ny vrah: s'mie veagh eh son y dooinney shen mannagh row eh rieau er jeet er y theihll.

The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born.


Eisht dansoor Yuaase, ren y vrah eh, as dooyrt eh, Vainshter, nee mish eh? Dooyrt eshyn rish, T'ou er ghra eh.

Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and said, Master, is it I? He said unto him, Thou hast said.


As myr v'ad gee, ghow Yeesey arran as vannee eh as vrish eh eh, as hug eh eh da ny ostyllyn, gra, Gow-jee, ee-jee, shoh my chorp's.

And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.


As ghow eh yn cappan, as hug eh booise, as hug eh eh daue, gra, iu-jee ooilley jeh shoh.

And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;


Son shoh my uill's jeh'n conaant noa, t'er ny gheayrtey son ymmodee son leih peccaghyn.

For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.


Agh ta mee gra riu, Nagh n'iu-ym maghey shoh jeh mess y villey-feeyney, derrey'n laa iu-ym eh ass-y-noa meriu ayns reeriaght my Ayrey.

But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.


As tra v'ad er ghoaill arrane-moyllee hie ad magh gys cronk ny Oliveyn.

And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.


Eisht dooyrt Yeesey roo, Failee yn credjue euish ooilley noght kyndagh rhym's: son te scruit, Bwoaill-ym's yn bochilley, as bee kirree yn chioltane er nyn skeayley.

Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad.


Agh erreish dou v'er n'irree reesht, hem reu gys Galilee.

But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee.


Dansoor Peddyr as dooyrt eh rish, Ga dy vaill credjue dy chooilley ghooinney kyndagh rhyt's, cha vaill my chredjue's dy bragh.

Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall be offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended.


Dooyrt Yeesey rish, Dy firrinagh ta mee gra rhyt, Noght hene roish gerrym chellee, dy nob uss mish three keayrtyn.

Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.


Dooyrt Peddyr rish, Dy beign dou goll dy baase mayrt, cha nobbin oo. As er yn aght cheddin loayr ooilley ny ostyllyn.

Peter said unto him, Though I should die with thee, yet will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples.


Eisht haink Yeesey maroo gys ynnyd va enmyssit Gethsemane, as dooyrt eh rish ny ostyllyn, Soie-jee shiuish ayns shoh, choud as hem's gys padjer 'sy voayl shid.

Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.


As ghow eh mârish Peddyr, as daa vac Zebedee, as ren eh toshiaght dy ve trimshagh as trome-chreeagh.

And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.


Eisht dooyrt eh roo, Ta my annym feer trimshagh, dy jarroo gys y baase: fuirree-jee ayns shoh as freill-jee arrey marym.

Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.


As hie eh red beg sodjey, as huitt eh sheese er e eddin, as ghow eh padjer, as dooyrt eh, O my Ayr, my oddys eh 've, lhig da'n cappan shoh goll shagh-ym: ny-yeih cha nee m'aigney's, agh dty aigney's dy row jeant.

And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.


As haink eh gys ny ostyllyn, as hooar eh ad nyn gadley, as dooyrt eh rish Peddyr, Kys ta shoh, nagh voddagh shiu arrey y reayll marym un oor?

And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?


Bee-jee er nyn dwoaie as gow-jee padjer, nagh duitt shiu ayns miolagh: ta'n spyrryd dy jarroo arryltagh, agh ta'n eill annoon.

Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.


Hie eh roish reesht yn nah cheayrt, as ghow eh padjer, gra, O my Ayr, mannagh vod yn cappan shoh goll shagh-ym, fegooish mee dy iu eh, dty aigney's dy row jeant.

He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.


As haink eh as hooar eh ad nyn gadley reesht: son va ny sooillyn oc trome.

And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.


As daag eh ad, as hie eh roish reesht as ghow eh padjer yn trass cheayrt, gra ny goan cheddin.

And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.


Eisht haink eh gys e ostyllyn, as dooyrt eh roo, Caddil-jee nish, as gow-jee nyn vea; cur-my-ner ta'n oor tayrn er-gerrey, as ta'n Mac dooinney er ny vrah gys laueyn peccee.

Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.


Irree-jee, as lhig dooin goll: cur-my-ner t'eshyn er-gerrey dooin ta dy my vrah.

Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.


As choud as v'eh foast loayrt, cur-my-ner, haink Yuaase, fer jeh'n daa ostyl yeig, as va sheshaght vooar m?rish lesh cliwenyn as luirg veih ny ard-saggyrtyn as shanstyr y phobble.

And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people.


Nish hug eshyn v'er vrah eh, cowrey daue, gra, Quoi-erbee ver-yms paag da, shen eh, cum-jee eh dy shickyr.

Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast.


As chelleeragh haink eh gys Yeesey, as dooyrt eh, Dy vannee dhyt, Vainshter; as phaag eh eh.

And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed him.


As dooyrt Yeesey rish, My heshey, cre'n-fa t'ou er jeet? Eisht haink ad, as ghreimm ad er Yeesey, as ghow ad eh.

And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus and took him.


As cur-my-ner heeyn fer jeusyn va marish Yeesey magh e laue, as hayrn eh e chliwe, as woaill eh fer-mooinjerey yn ard saggyrt, as ghiare eh yn chleaysh jeh.

And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest's, and smote off his ear.


Eisht dooyrt Yeesey rish, Cur seose dty chliwe reesht 'sy fine: son nee adsyn ooilley ta goaill y cliwe, cherraghtyn liorish y chliwe.

Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.


Vel uss smooinaghtyn nagh voddym's nish guee gys my Ayr, as yinnagh eh chelleeragh hym erskyn daa legion jeig dy ainleyn?

Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?


Agh kys eisht vees ny scriptyryn er nyn gooilleeney, dy nee shoh myr te dy ve?

But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?


Ayns yn oor cheddin dooyrt Yeesey rish y pobble, Vel shiu er jeet magh myr noi maarliagh, lesh cliwenyn as luirg dy my ghoaill? hoie mee meriu gagh-laa gynsaghey ayns y chiamble, as cha ren shiu my ghoaill.

In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me.


Agh va ooilley shoh jeant, dy voddagh scriptyryn ny phadeyryn ve cooilleenit. Eisht ren ooilley ny ostyllyn treigeil eh, as cosney roue.

But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.


As leeid y vooinjer v'er ghoaill Yeesey eh ersooyl gys Caiaphas yn ard saggyrt, raad va ny scrudeyryn as y chanstyr er nyn jaglym cooidjagh.

And they that had laid hold on Jesus led him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled.


Agh deiyr Peddyr er foddey ny yeï, gys thie yn ard-saggyrt, as hie eh stiagh, as hoie eh marish y vooinjer dy yeeaghyn cre'n erree harragh er.

But Peter followed him afar off unto the high priest's palace, and went in, and sat with the servants, to see the end.


Nish yn ny ard-saggyrtyn as y chanstyr as ooilley yn choonceil, shirrey feanishyn foalsey noi Yeesey dy choyrt eh gy-baase.

Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death;


Agh cha dooar ad veg: ga dy daink ymmodee feanishyn foalsey, foast cha dooar ad veg. Ec y jerrey haink daa eanish foalsey,

But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses,


As dooyrt ad, T'eh shoh er ghra, Ta'n phooar aym's dy lhieggal chiamble Yee, as dy hroggal eh reesht ayns three laa.

And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days.


As hass yn ard-saggyrt seose, as dooyrt eh rish, Nagh vel oo cur ansoor? cre shoh t'ad dy lhiassaghey dt'oi?

And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?


Agh va Yeesey ny-host. As dreggyr yn ard-saggyrt as dooyrt eh rish, Ta mee cur currym ort liorish y Jee bio, oo dy insh dooin, nee oo yn Creest mac Yee?

But Jesus held his peace, And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.


Dooyrt Yeesey rish, T'ou uss er ghra eh: ny-yeih ta mish gra riu, Ny lurg shoh hee shiu Mac y dooinney ny hoie er laue yesh yn phooar, as cheet ayns bodjallyn yn aer.

Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.


Eisht raip yn ard-saggyrt e choamrey, gra, ren er loayrt goan mollaghtagh, cre'n feme sodjey t'ain er feanishyn? cur-my-ner, nish ta shiu er chlashtyn e ghoan mollaghtagh.

Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy.


Cre ta shiu smooinaghtyn jeh? Dansoor ad, as dooyrt ad, T'eh toilchin dy ve er ny choyrt gy-baase.

What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death.


Eisht cheau ad shellaghyn ayns e eddin, as woaill ad eh, as woaill feallagh elley eh lesh bassyn nyn laueyn.

Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands,


Gra, Jean phadeyrys dooin, uss yn Creest, quoi ta dy dty woalley?

Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee?


Nish va Peddyr ny hoie cheu-mooie jeh'n cheshaght ayns y halley: as haink ben aeg huggey, gra, V'ou uss myrgeddin marish Yeesey dy Ghalilee.

Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came unto him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee.


Agh dob eh kiongoyrt roo ooilley, gra, Cha s'aym cre t'ou dy ghra.

But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what thou sayest.


As tra v'eh er gholl magh ayns y phorch, honnick ben-aeg elley eh, as dooyrt ee roosyn v'ayns shen, V'eh shoh myrgeddin marish Yeesey dy Nazareth.

And when he was gone out into the porch, another maid saw him, and said unto them that were there, This fellow was also with Jesus of Nazareth.


As reesht dob eh lesh loo, Cha nione dou yn dooinney.

And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man.


As tammylt ny lurg shen haink huggey paart jeh'n cheshaght, as dooyrt ad rish Peddyr, Shickyr she fer jeu oo, son ta dty ghlare dy dty vrah.

And after a while came unto him they that stood by, and said to Peter, Surely thou also art one of them; for thy speech bewrayeth thee.


Eisht ren eh toshiaght dy ghweeaghyn as dy loo, gra, Cha nione dou yn dooinney. As chelleeragh ren y kellagh gerrym.

Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew.


As chooinee Peddyr er ny goan va Yeesey er ghra rish, Roish gerrym y chellee, obbee uss mish three keayrtyn. As hie eh magh as cheayn eh dy sharroo.

And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly.
