The Bible


Ayns ny laghyn shen va earroo yn phobble feer vooar, as gyn veg y veaghey oc dy ghoaill, deie Yeesey er e ostyllyn huggey, as dooyrt eh roo:

In those days the multitude being very great, and having nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples unto him, and saith unto them,


Ta chymmey aym's er y pobble, er-yn-oyr dy vel ad er ny ve marym nish three laa, as nagh vel monney oc dy ee:

I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now been with me three days, and have nothing to eat:


As my ver-ym ad ersooyl nyn drostey gys nyn dhieyn hene, nee ad gannooinaghey er y raad: son ta paart jeu er jeet veih foddey.

And if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they will faint by the way: for divers of them came from far.


As dreggyr e ostyllyn eh, Cre voish oddys dooinney ad shoh y yannoo magh lesh arran ayns shoh ayns yn aasagh?

And his disciples answered him, From whence can a man satisfy these men with bread here in the wilderness?


As denee eh jeu, Cre-woad bwilleen t'eu? As dooyrt adsyn, Shiaght.

And he asked them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven.


As doardee eh da'n pobble dy hoie sheese er y thalloo: as ghow eh ny shiaght bwilleenyn, as hug eh booise, as vrish eh, as hug eh ad da e ostyllyn dy hoiaghey rhymboo; as ren adsyn shirveish ad er y pobble.

And he commanded the people to sit down on the ground: and he took the seven loaves, and gave thanks, and brake, and gave to his disciples to set before them; and they did set them before the people.


As va kuse dy eeastyn beggey oc: as vannee eh, as doardee eh dy hoiaghey ad shen myrgeddin er nyn meealloo.

And they had a few small fishes: and he blessed, and commanded to set them also before them.


Myr shen ren ad gee, as v'ad er nyn n'yannoo magh, as hrog ad jeh'n fooilliagh va er-mayrn, lane shiaght baskadyn.

So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets.


As v'adsyn ren gee mysh kiare thousaneyn, as hug eh ad ersooyl.

And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them away.


As jeeragh ghow eh lhuingys marish e ostyllyn, as haink eh gys ardjyn Dalmanutha.

And straightway he entered into a ship with his disciples, and came into the parts of Dalmanutha.


As haink ny Phariseeyn magh, as ren ad toshiaght dy enaght questionyn jeh, as dy hirrey er cowrey veih niau, er-chee dy phrowal eh.

And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him.


As ren eh osnaghey dy trome ayns e spyrryd, as dooyrt eh, Cre'n-fa ta'n cheeloghe shoh shirrey cowrey? dy firrinagh ta mee gra riu, Nagh bee cowrey er ny choyrt da'n cheeloghe shoh.

And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation.


As daag eh ad, as ghow eh lhuingys reesht, as haink eh gys y cheu elley.

And he left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the other side.


Nish va e ostyllyn er yarrood dy ghoaill arran maroo, as cha row oc ayns y lhong agh un willeen.

Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them more than one loaf.


As hug eh currym orroo, gra, Bee-jee er nyn arrey, cur-jee twoaie jeh soorid ny Phariseeyn, as jeh soorid Herod.

And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.


As v'ad pleadeil ry-cheilley, gra, Ta shoh er-yn-oyr nagh vel arran ain.

And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have no bread.


As tra va fys ec Yeesey er, dooyrt eh roo, Cre'n-fa ta shiu arganey ny-vud eu hene, son nagh vel arran eu? nagh vel shiu foast cur tastey, ny toiggal? vel y cree eu foast moal ayns tushtey?

And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened?


Shiuish ta sooillyn eu, nagh vel shiu fakin? as cleayshyn, nagh vel shiu clashtyn? as nagh vel eh eu ayns cooinaghtyn?

Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember?


Tra vrish mish ny queig bwilleenyn mastey queig thousaneyn, cre whilleen baskad d'ooilliagh hrog shiu? Dooyrt ad rish, Daa vaskad jeig.

When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve.


As tra vrish mee ny shiaght mastey kiare thousaneyn, cre whilleen baskad d'ooilliagh hrog shiu? As dooyrt adsyn, shiaght.

And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven.


As dooyrt eh roo, Kys te nagh vel shiu goaill tushtey?

And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand?


As haink eh gys Bethsaida, as hug ad lhieu dooinney doal huggey, as ghuee ad er eh dy ventyn rish.

And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought him to touch him.


As ghow eh yn dooinney doal er laue as leeid eh eh magh ass y valley; as tra v'eh er chur shelley er e hooillyn, as er chur e laueyn er, denee eh jeh row eh fakin nhee erbee.

And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought.


As yeeagh eh seose, as dooyrt eh, Hee-ym deiney myr biljyn, shooyll.

And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.


Ny lurg shen, hug eh e laueyn reesht er e hooillyn, as hug eh er jeeaghyn seose: as hooar eh e hoilshey, as honnick eh dy chooilley ghooinney dy cronnal.

After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.


As hug eh eh ersooyl gys e hie, gra, Ny gow stiagh ayns y valley, chamoo inshys oo eh da unnane erbee ayns y valley.

And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town.


As hie Yeesey as e ostyllyn magh gys baljyn Cesarea Philippi: as er y raad denee eh jeu, gra, Cre ta deiney dy ghra my-mychione's, quoi mee?

And Jesus went out, and his disciples, into the towns of Caesarea Philippi: and by the way he asked his disciples, saying unto them, Whom do men say that I am?


As dreggyr ad, Ean Bashtey: agh ta paart gra, Elias; as feallagh elley, Fer jeh ny phadeyryn.

And they answered, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and others, One of the prophets.


As dooyrt eh roo, Agh quoi ta shiuish dy ghra dy vel mee? As dreggyr Peddyr as dooyrt eh rish, Oo yn Creest.

And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ.


As hug eh currym orroo gyn ad dy insh da dooinney erbee quoi v'eh.

And he charged them that they should tell no man of him.


As ren eh toshiaght dy hoilshaghey daue, dy row yn Mac dooinney dy hurranse ymmodee reddyn, as dy ve mee-lowit liorish y chanstyr, as ny ard-saggyrtyn as ny scrudeyryn, as dy ve er ny choyrt gy-baase, as er y trass laa dy irree reesht.

And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.


As loayr eh yn raa shoh dy foshlit. As ghow Peddyr eh dy lhiattee, as ren eh toshiaght dy choyrlaghey eh.

And he spake that saying openly. And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him.


Agh tra v'eh er jyndaa mygeayrt, as er yeeaghyn er e ostyllyn, hug eshyn oghsan da Peddyr, gra, Ass my enish, y violeyder: son cha vel ennaghtyn ayd jeh ny reddyn ta bentyn rish Jee, agh jeh ny reddyn ta bentyn rish deiney.

But when he had turned about and looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men.


As tra v'eh er n'eamagh er y pobble huggey, marish e ostyllyn, dooyrt eh roo, Quoi-erbee ta aggindagh geiyrt orrym's, lhig da eh-hene y obbal, as e chrosh y hroggal, as geiyrt orrym.

And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.


Son quoi-erbee baillish e vioys y hauail, caillee eh eh; agh quoi-erbee chaillys e vioys er my ghraih's as graih yn tushtal, sauee eh eh.

For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.


Son cre'n vondeish vees ec dooinney my chosnys eh yn seihll ooilley, as e annym hene y choayl?

For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?


Ny cre nee dooinney y choyrt ayns coonrey son e annym?

Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?


Quoi-erbee er-y-fa shen ghoys nearey roym's, as roish my ghoan, ayns y cheeloghe foalsey as peccoil shoh, roishyn myrgeddin ghoys Mac y dooinney nearey, tra hig eh ayns gloyr e Ayrey, as ny ainleyn casherick marish.

Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
