The Bible


As hie eh magh veih shen, as haink eh gys e heer hene, as deir e ostyllyn er.

And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him.


As tra va'n doonaght er jeet ren eh toshiaght dy ynsaghey ayns y synagogue: as ghow ymmodee jeusyn va dy chlashtyn eh yindys mooar, gra, Cre voish ta ny reddyn shoh ec y dooinney shoh? as cre'n chreenaght shoh t'er ny choyrt da, dy vel lheid ny obbraghyn niartal er nyn obbraghey liorish ny laueyn echey?

And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?


Nagh nee shoh yn seyir mac Voirrey braar Yamys as Yoses as Juda as Simon, as nagh vel ny shayraghyn echey ayns shoh marin? as ghow ad comys rish.

Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.


Agh dooyrt Yeesey roo, Cha vel phadeyr fegooish ooashley, agh ayns e heer hene, as mastey e chynney hene, as ayns e hie hene.

But Jesus, said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.


As cha dod eh mirril erbee y obbraghey ayns shen, cheu-mooie jeh dy dug eh e laueyn er reggyryn dy leih chingey, as dy ren eh ad y lheihys.

And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.


As ghow eh yindys jeh'n vee-chredjue oc. As hie eh mygeayrt ny baljyn-cheerey oc gynsaghey.

And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.


As deïe eh er y daa ostyl yeig huggey, as ren eh toshiaght dy chur ad magh jees as jees, as hug eh daue pooar harrish spyrrydyn neu-ghlen,

And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;


As sarey gyn ad dy ghoaill red erbee cour nyn yurnah, agh ynrycan lorg: gyn ad dy ghoaill spaagey, ny arran, ny argid ayns nyn sporran:

And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse:


Agh dy gholl ayns nyn mraagyn, as gyn ad dy chur orroo daa chooat.

But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats.


As dooyrt eh roo, Raad erbee dy jed shiu stiagh ayns thie, fuirree jee ayn derrey aagys shiu yn ynnyd shen.

And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place.


As quoi-erbee nagh jean goaill riu, ny geill y choyrt da ny goan eu, tra vees shiu goll reue, crie-jee yn joan ta fo ny cassyn eu, son feanish nyn 'o?. Dy firrinagh ta mee gra riu, Dy bee eh ny sassey son Sodom as Gomorrah ec laa ny briwnys, na son yn ard valley shen.

And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.


As hie ad magh, as ren ad preacheil, sleih dy ghoaill arrys.

And they went out, and preached that men should repent.


As deiyr ad magh ymmodee drogh-spyrrydyn, as d'ooilee ad lesh ooil ymmodee sleih chingey, as ren ad ad y laanaghey.

And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.


As cheayll ree Herod jeh (son va'n goo echey er n'gholl magh) as dooyrt eh, Dy row Ean Bashtey er n'irree veih ny merriu, as er-yn-oyr shen dy row mirrillyn er nyn obbraghey liorish.

And king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad:) and he said, That John the Baptist was risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.


Dooyrt paart dy leih, dy nee Elias v'ayn: dooyrt feallagh elley, Dy nee phadeyr v'eh, ny myr fer jeh ny phadeyryn.

Others said, That it is Elias. And others said, That it is a prophet, or as one of the prophets.


Agh tra cheayll Herod jeh, dooyrt eh, She Ean Bashtey t'ayn, hug mish y kione jeh, t'eh er n'irree veih ny merriu.

But when Herod heard thereof, he said, It is John, whom I beheaded: he is risen from the dead.


Son va Herod hene er chur fys magh, as er ghoaill Ean, as er choyrt eh ayns geulaghyn 'sy phryssoon, kyndagh rish Herodias ben e vraar Philip son v'eh er phoosey ee.

For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife: for he had married her.


Son va Ean er ghra rish Herod, Te noi yn leigh dhyt ben dty vraarey y ve ayd son ben.

For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother's wife.


Shen-y-fa va Herodias ayns goanlys da, as v'ee shleeuit er cur dy baase eh, agh cha daink eh lh'ee.

Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not:


Son va Herod ayns ammys Ean, toiggal dy row eh ny ghooinney cairagh as crauee as hug eh geill da, as er y choyrle echey v'eh er n'yannoo ymmodee reddyn, as deaisht eh rish dy arryltagh.

For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an holy, and observed him; and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly.


Agh tra va laa jesh er y hon er jeet, dy ren Herod corrym rish y laa ruggyr eh, shibber y yannoo, son e hiarnyn, ard-chaptanyn, as deiney ooasle Ghalilee:

And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief estates of Galilee;


As haink inneen Herodias cheddin stiagh, as ghaunse ee, as ghow Herod as e ghoaldee va marish ard-voggey j'ee, as dooyrt y ree rish y ven-aeg, Shir orrym's aghin erbee dy nailt, as giall-ym dhyt eh.

And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee.


As loo eh jee, Cre-erbee hirrys oo orrym, ver-ym dhyt eh, gys y derrey lieh jeh my reeriaght.

And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom.


As hie ee magh, as dooyrt ee rish e moir, Cre hirrym? As dooyrt ish, Kione Ean Bashtey.

And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist.


As haink ee stiagh er-y-chooyl ayns siyr gys y ree, as hir ee, gra, Saillym oo dy chur dou nish hene er claare kione Ean Bashtey.

And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I will that thou give me by and by in a charger the head of John the Baptist.


As va'n ree trome trimshagh, ny yeih er coontey e loo, as y vooinjer va nyn soie marish, cha row eh booiagh cur obbal jee.

And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath's sake, and for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her.


As chelleeragh hug y ree magh marrooder, as doardee eh cur lesh e chione: as hie eh, as hug eh yn kione jeh Ean ayns y phryssoon,

And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison,


As hug eh lesh yn kione er claare, as livrey eh eh gys y ven-aeg as livrey ish eh gys e moir.

And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother.


As tra cheayll e ynseydee jeh shoh, haink ad as hrog ad e chorp, as doanluck ad eh ayns lhiaght

And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb.


As haink ny ostyllyn cooidjagh gys Yeesey, as dinsh ad da dy chooilley nhee, chammah cre v'ad er n'yannoo, as cre v'ad er n'ynsaghey.

And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.


As dooyrt eh roo, Tar-jee shiuish er-lheh gys boayl faasagh, as gow-jee tammylt dy nyn aash: son va ymmodee cheet as goll, as cha row caa oc wheesh as dy ee.

And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.


As jimmee ad ayns lhong gys ynnyd faasagh er-lheh.

And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.


Agh honnick y pobble ad goll roue, as hug ymmodee jeu enney er, as roie ad gys shen rish nyn gosh veih dy chooilley ard-valley, as haink ad gys shen rhymboo, as chruinnee ad huggey.

And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran afoot thither out of all cities, and outwent them, and came together unto him.


As tra va Yeesey er jeet er thalloo honnick eh earroo mooar dy leih, as v'eh er ny veiyghey lesh chymmey orroo, er-yn-oyr dy row ad myr kirree fegooish bochilley: as ren eh toshiaght dy ynsaghey ad ayns ymmodee reddyn.

And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.


As tra va'n laa nish foddey baarit, haink e ostyllyn huggey, as dooyrt ad, Shoh boayl faasagh, as ta'n traa nish er n'gholl foddey shaghey:

And when the day was now far spent, his disciples came unto him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed:


Lhig y raad daue, dy vod ad goll er y cheer mygeayrt, as gys ny baljyn cheerey, dy chionnaghey arran daue hene: son cha vel veg y veaghey oc.

Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat.


As dreggyr eshyn as dooyrt eh roo, Cur-jee shiuish bee daue. As dooyrt ad rish, Nailt shin goll dy chionnaghey feeagh daa cheead ping dy arran, as beaghey 'chur daue?

He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them to eat?


Dooyrt eh roo, Cre-woad bwilleen t'eu? immee-jee as jeeagh-jee. As tra va fys oc, dooyrt ad, Queig, as daa eeast.

He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes.


As doardee eh daue ad dy chur orroo ooilley soie sheese ayns sheshaghtyn er yn aiyr ghlass.

And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass.


As hoie ad sheese ayns roaghyn, keead as lieh-cheead ayns roa.

And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties.


As tra v'eh er ghoaill ny queig bwilleenyn as y daa eeast, yeeagh eh seose gys niau, as vannee eh, as vrish eh ny bwilleenyn, as hug eh ad da e ostyllyn dy hoiaghey rhymboo; as y daa eeast rheynn eh ny mast' oc ooilley.

And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all.


As ren ad ooilley gee, as v'ad er nyn n'yannoo magh.

And they did all eat, and were filled.


As hrog ad jeh'n fooilliagh as jeh ny eeastyn lane daa vaskad jeig.

And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes.


As v'adsyn v'er n'ee jeh ny bwilleenyn mysh queig thousane dooinney.

And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.


As chelleeragh hug eh er e ostyllyn lhuingys y ghoaill, as ad dy gholl roish gys y cheu elley gys Bethsaida, choud as v'eh cur y pobble ersooyl.

And straightway he constrained his disciples to get into the ship, and to go to the other side before unto Bethsaida, while he sent away the people.


As tra v'eh er chur ad ersooyl, hie eh seose er slieau dy ghoaill padjer.

And when he had sent them away, he departed into a mountain to pray.


As tra va'n fastyr er jeet, va'n lhong ayns mean ny marrey, as eshyn ny-lomarcan er y thalloo.

And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the land.


As honnick eh ad tooilleil ayns gymmyrt (son va'n gheay nyn 'oi oc) as mygeayrt y chiarroo arrey jeh'n oie, haink eh huc shooyll er y cheayn, as ren eh myr dy ragh eh shaghey ad.

And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them.


Agh tra honnick ad eh shooyll er y cheayn, heill ad dy nee scaan v'ayn, as dyllee ad.

But when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out:


Son honnick ad ooilley eh, as v'ad seaghnit. As chelleeragh loayr eh roo, as dooyrt eh roo, Bee-jee dy yien mie, she mish t'ayn, ny gow-jee aggle.

For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid.


As hie eh seose 'sy lhong huc, as ghow yn gheay fea: as v'ad feer atchimagh ayndoo hene erskyn towse, as goaill yindys.

And he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered.


Son cha chooinee ad er (mirril) ny bwilleenyn, son va'n cree oc er ny chreoghey.

For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.


As tra v'ad er n'gholl harrish, haink ad gys cheer Ghennesaret, as hayrn ad gys thalloo.

And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore.


As tra v'ad er jeet ass y lhong, chelleeragh hug y sleih enney er,

And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew him,


As roie ad trooid ooilley yn cheer mygeayrt, as hug ad lhieu er lhiabbaghyn adsyn va ching, raad v'ad clashtyn v'eh.

And ran through that whole region round about, and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard he was.


As raad erbee dy jagh eh, gys baljyn-cheerey, ny ard-valjyn, ny er y cheer, lhie ad yn vooinjer hingey ayns ny raaidyn, as ghuee ad er agh dy ventyn rish oirr e gharmad: as whilleen as venn rish, v'ad er nyn lheihys.

And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.
