As denee Pilate jeh reesht, gra, Nagh vel oo cur ansoor erbee? cur-my-ner cre whilleen red as t'ad shoh dy lhiassaghey dt'oi.

And Pilate asked him again, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they witness against thee.

And there was one named Barabbas, which lay bound with them that had made insurrection with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection.


As dyllee yn pobble dy ard, as ren ad toshiaght dy ghuee er, Eh dy yannoo er nyn son, myr v'eh rieau cliaghtey.

Agh ghreinnee ny ard-saggyrtyn y pobble, ad dy yeearree er my reih, eh dy eaysley daue Barabbas.

But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them.


As dreggyr Pilate, as dooyrt eh reesht roo, Cre bailliu mee eisht dy yannoo rishyn ta shiu dy enmys ree ny Hewnyn?
