And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God


Te ny sassey da camel goll trooid croae snaidey, na da lheid y dooinney berchagh shoh dy gholl stiagh ayns reeriaght Yee.

It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's,


Nagh vow keead-filley nish ayns y traa shoh, thieyn, as braaraghyn, as shayraghyn, as moiraghyn, as cloan, as thalloo, lesh seaghyn; as ayns y theihll ta ry-heet yn vea veayn.
