The Bible


As va Yeesey lane jeh'n Spyrryd Noo, as hyndaa eh veih Jordan, as v'eh er ny leeideil liorish y Spyrryd gys yn aasagh,

And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,


As v'eh da-eed laa er ny violaghey liorish y drogh-spyrryd, as ayns ny laghyn shen cha d'ee eh veg; as tra v'ad harrish, v'eh ny lurg shen accryssagh.

Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.


As dooyrt y drogh-spyrryd rish, My she Mac Yee oo, abbyr rish yn chlagh shoh dy ve jeant ny arran.

And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread.


As dreggyr Yeesey eh, gra, Te scruit, Nagh nee er arran ny-lomarcan nee dooinney beaghey, agh liorish ooilley goan Yee.

And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.


As hug y drogh-spyrryd lesh seose eh gys mullagh slieau ard, as ayns y tullogh hug eh shilley da jeh ooilley reeriaghtyn y theihll.

And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.


As dooyrt y drogh-spyrryd rish, Ooilley yn phooar shoh ver-ym dhyt's, as y ghloyr oc; son ta shen er ny livrey dou, as da quoi-erbee saillym, ta mee dy choyrt eh.

And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.


My ver oo er-y-fa shen ooashley dou bee ooilley lhiat hene.

If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.


As dreggyr Yeesey as dooyrt eh rish, Ass my enish oo, Noid-ny-hanmey: son te scruit, Ver oo ooashley da'n Chiarn dty Yee, as eshyn ynrycan nee oo y hirveish.

And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.


As hug eh lesh eh gys Jerusalem, as hoie eh eh er beinn toor syrjey yn chiamble, as dooyrt eh rish, My she Mac Yee oo, tilg oo hene sheese veih shoh.

And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence:


Son te scruit, Ver eh currym da e ainleyn harryd, dy dty reayll:

For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:


As ayns nyn laueyn nee ad oo y ymmyrkey, er-aggle ec traa erbee dy bwoaill oo dty chass noi clagh.

And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.


As dreggyr Yeesey as dooyrt eh rish, Te er ny ghra, Cha jean oo daanys er y Chiarn dty Yee.

And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.


As erreish da'n drogh-spyrryd v'er n'yannoo jerrey er ooilley yn violagh, daag eh eh son earish.

And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.


As haink Yeesey reesht ayns pooar y spyrryd gys Galilee: as hie goo magh jeh trooid ooilley yn cheer mygeayrt.

And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.


As dynsee eh ayns ny kialteenyn oc, as v'eh ayns ard-voylley rish y theay.

And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all.


As haink eh gys Nazareth, raad v'eh er ny ve troggit: as hie eh, myr v'eh cliaghtey, stiagh ayns y synagogue er laa yn doonaght, as hass eh seose dy lhaih.

And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.


As va lioar y phadeyr Esaias er ny livrey da, as tra v'eh er vosley yn lioar, hooar eh yn ynnyd raad v'eh scruit,

And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,


Ta spyrryd y Chiarn orrym's, er-y-fa dy vel eh er my ooillaghey dy phreacheil y sushtal gys ny boghtyn, t'eh er my choyrt dy laanaghey yn vooinjer hrome-chreeagh, dy phreacheil livrey-ys gys ny cappeeyn, dy chur soilshey da ny doail, as reamys dauesyn ta broojit,

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,


Dy phreacheil blein eunyssagh y Chiarn.

To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.

And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph's son?

And he said unto them, Ye will surely say unto me this proverb, Physician, heal thyself: whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in thy country.


As dooyrt eh, Dy firrinagh ta mee gra riu, Nagh vel soiagh jeant jeh phadeyr erbee ayns e heer hene.

And he said, Verily I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country.


Agh ta mee ginsh diu ayns firrinys, dy row ymmodee mraane treoghe ayns Israel rish hing Elias, tra va'n aer jeight seose three bleeaney as shey meeghyn, tra va genney vooar trooid ooilley yn cheer:

But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land;


Agh gys unnane oc cha row Elias er ny choyrt, cheu mooie jeh gys Sarepta ard-valley dy Sidon, gys ben-treoghe v'ayns shen.

But unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow.

And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the prophet; and none of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the Syrian.

And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath,


As dirree ad, as deiyr ad eh magh ass yn ard-valley, as hug ad lhieu eh gys broogh yn chronk (er va'n ard-valley oc troggit) ry-hoi tilgey sheese eh gour e vullee.

And rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast him down headlong.


Agh hie eh magh trooid mean y cheshaght, as jimmee eh roish:

But he passing through the midst of them went his way,


As haink eh neose gys Capernaum, ard-valley dy Ghalilee, as dynsee eh ad er laghyn y doonaght.

And came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and taught them on the sabbath days.


As ghow ad yindys mooar jeh'n ynsaghey echey: son va e ghoo lesh pooar.

And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was with power.


As ayns y synagogue va dooinney seaghnit lesh spyrryd neu-ghlen, as dyllee eh lesh ard-choraa.

And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice,


Gra, Faag shin; cre'n eie t'ayd orrin uss Yeesey dy Nazareth? vel oo er jeet dy nyn stroie? ta fys aym quoi oo hene; Fer-casherick Yee.

Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art; the Holy One of God.


As hug Yeesey oghsan da, gra Bee dty-host, as tar magh ass. As tra va'n drogh spyrryd er hilgey neeal eh, haink eh magh ass, gyn assee da.

And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not.


As v'ad ooilley fo atchim, as loayr ad ny mast' oc hene, gra, Cre'n fockle (vreeoil) shoh? son lesh pooar as niart t'eh cur ny spyrrydyn neu ghlen fo harey, as t'ad cheet magh.

And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out.


As hie goo magh jeh trooid dy chooilley ard jeh'n cheer mygeayrt.

And the fame of him went out into every place of the country round about.


As hrog eh magh ass y synagogue, as hie eh stiagh ayns thie Simon: as va moir ben Simon feer ching ayns y chiassaghey; as ren ad aghin huggey er e son.

And he arose out of the synagogue, and entered into Simon's house. And Simon's wife's mother was taken with a great fever; and they besought him for her.


As hass eh er-e-skyn, as hug eh oghsan da'n chiassaghey, as daag eh ee. As chelleeragh dirree ee seose, as ren ee shirveish orroo.

And he stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her: and immediately she arose and ministered unto them.


Nish ec lhie ny greïney, whilleen as va sleih chingey oc fo mooarane doghanyn hug ad lhieu ad huggey; as hug eh e laueyn er dy chooilley unnane oc, as ren eh ad y lheihys.

Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.


As haink drogh-spyrrydyn myrgeddin magh ass ymmodee, gyllagh as gra, Oo yn Creest Mac Yee. As hug eh oghsan daue, as cha lhig eh daue loayrt; son va fys oc dy nee eh va'n Creest.

And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou art Christ the Son of God. And he rebuking them suffered them not to speak: for they knew that he was Christ.


As 'sy vadran, jimmee eh roish, as hie eh gys boayl er-lheh: as va'n pobble briaght er e hon, as cheet huggey, as chionney er, eh dy uirriaght mâroo.

And when it was day, he departed and went into a desert place: and the people sought him, and came unto him, and stayed him, that he should not depart from them.

And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent.


As ren eh preacheil ayns kialteenyn Ghalilee.

And he preached in the synagogues of Galilee.
