The Bible


As haink eh gy-kione myr va'n pobble chionney stiagh er dy chlashtyn goo Yee, as eh ny hassoo liorish faarkey Ghennesareth,

And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret,


As honnick eh daa lhong rish oirr y traie: agh va ny eeasteyryn er n'gholl assdoo, as v'ad niee yn lieen.

And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets.


As hie eh er-board unnane jeh ny lhongyn va lesh Simon, as ghuee eh er, eh dy heiy magh tammylt veih yn thalloo: as hoie eh sheese, as dynsee eh yn pobble ass y lhong.

And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.


Nish tra v'eh erreish loayrt, dooyrt eh rish Simon, Ymmyrt-jee magh gys y diunid, as cuir-jee yn lieen son tayrn.

Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.


As dreggyr Simon as dooyrt eh rish, Vainshter, ta shin er hooilleil fud ny hoie, as cha vel shin er ghoaill monney: ny-yeih er dty ockle's cuir-yms yn lieen.

And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.


As tra v'ad er n'yannoo shoh chruinnee ad dy cheilley lheid yn earroo mooar dy eeastyn; dy row yn lieen oc brishey.

And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.


As chrie ad er ny parteeassyn oc v'ayns y lhong elley, ad dy heet dy chooney lhieu. As haink ad, as lhieen ad y daa lhong, myr shen dy row ad ayns gaue goll fo.

And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.


Tra honnick Simon Peddyr shoh, huitt eh sheese ec glioonyn Yeesey, gra, Immee voym, son ta mee my ghooinney peccoil, O Hiarn.

When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.


Son ghow eshyn, as ooilley ny va mârish, yindys mooar jeh'n lught dy eeastyn v'ad er ghoaill:

For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken:


Myr ren neesht Jamys as Ean mec Zebedee, va nyn barteeassyn marish Simon. As dooyrt Yeesey rish Simon, Ny bee aggle ort, veih shoh magh nee oo goaill deiney.

And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men.


As tra v'ad er chur lhieu nyn lhongyn gys thalloo, hreig ad ooilley, as deiyr ad er.

And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him.


As haink eh gy-kione, tra v'eh ayns ard-valley dy row, cur-my-ner, dooinney lane jeh'n louraneys: as tra honnick eh Yeesey, huitt eh sheese er e eddin, jannoo aghin huggey as gra, Hiarn, my she dty aigney eh, foddee oo mish y yannoo glen.

And it came to pass, when he was in a certain city, behold a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and besought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.


As heeyn eh magh e laue, as venn eh rish, gra, M'aigney's eh; bee er dty ghlenney. As chelleeragh daag y louraneys eh.

And he put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will: be thou clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him.


As hug eh currym er gyn eh dy insh shoh da dooinney erbee: agh immee, as jeeagh oo hene da'n taggyrt, as cheb son dty ghlenney, myr ta Moses er harey, dy ve son feanish daue.

And he charged him to tell no man: but go, and shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing, according as Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.


Agh wheesh shen smoo hie goo magh jeh: as haink earrooyn mooarey dy leih cooidjagh dy chlashtyn, as dy ve er nyn lheihys liorish jeh nyn aslayntyn.

But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him: and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities.


Agh hie eshyn eh-hene roish gys yn aasagh, dy ghoaill padjer.

And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed.


As haink eh gy-kione laa dy row, myr v'eh gynsaghey, dy row Phariseeyn as fir-ynsee yn leigh nyn soie liorish, v'er jeet magh ass ooilley baljyn Ghalilee, as Judea as Jerusalem: as va pooar y Chiarn feer vreeoil mârish ayns lheihys doghanyn.

And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them.


As cur-my-ner, hug sleih lhieu ayns lhiabbee dooinney va ching jeh'n palsee: as v'ad shirrey y chur lhieu stiagh eh, dy hoiaghey eh kiongoyrt rish

And, behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a palsy: and they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before him.


As tra nagh row saase erbee oc dy chur lhieu stiagh eh kyndagh rish chennid y phobble, hie ad seose er mullagh y thie, as lhig ad sheese ny hrooid, eh-hene as e lhiabbee, er y laare kiongoyrt rish Yeesey.

And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in because of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, and let him down through the tiling with his couch into the midst before Jesus.


As tra hug eh tastey da'n chredjue oc, dooyrt eh rish, Ghooinney, ta dty pheccaghyn er nyn leih dhyt.

And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.


As ren ny scrudeyryn as ny Phariseeyn toshiaght dy phleadeil ry-cheilley, gra, Quoi eh shoh ta loayrt goan mollaghtagh? Quoi oddys peccaghyn y leih, agh Jee ny lomarcan?

And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this which speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?


Agh va fys ec Yeesey er ny smooinaghtyn oc, as dreggyr eh, as dooyrt eh roo, Cre er ta shiu resooney ayns nyn greeaghyn?

But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, he answering said unto them, What reason ye in your hearts?


Quoi sassey dy ghra, Ta dty pheccagh yn er nyn leih dhyt, ny dy ghra, Irree seose as shooill?

Whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Rise up and walk?


Agh dy vod fys y ve eu, dy vel pooar ec Mac y dooinney er y thalloo dy leih peccaghyn (dooyrt eh rishyn va ching jeh'n chingys craa-ee.) Ta mee gra rhyt, Irree, as trog seose dty lhiabbee, as gow royd gys dty hie.

But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power upon earth to forgive sins, (he said unto the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thine house.


As chelleeragh dirree eh seose kiongoyrt roo, as hrog eh shen v'eh ny lhie er, as jimmee eh gys e hie, cur moylley da Jee.

And immediately he rose up before them, and took up that whereon he lay, and departed to his own house, glorifying God.


As ghow ad ooilley lane yindys, as ren ad Jee y ghloyraghey, as v'ad lhieent lesh aggle, gra, Ta shin er vakin reddyn yindyssagh jiu.

And they were all amazed, and they glorified God, and were filled with fear, saying, We have seen strange things to day.


As ny lurg shoh hie eh magh, as honnick eh publican va enmyssit Levi, ny hoie ec boayrd y cheesh: as dooyrt eh rish, Eiyr orrym's.

And after these things he went forth, and saw a publican, named Levi, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he said unto him, Follow me.


As daag eh ooilley as dirree eh seose, as deiyr eh er.

And he left all, rose up, and followed him.


As ren Levi aarlaghey mooar er e hon ayns e hie hene: as va sheshaght vooar dy phublicanee as dy eallagh elley nyn soie ec y voayrd mâroo.

And Levi made him a great feast in his own house: and there was a great company of publicans and of others that sat down with them.


Agh va ny scrudeyryn oc as ny Phariseeyn jymmoosagh rish e ynseydee, gra, Cre'n-fa ta shiu gee as giu marish publicanee as peccee?

But their scribes and Pharisees murmured against his disciples, saying, Why do ye eat and drink with publicans and sinners?


As dreggyr Yeesey as dooyrt eh roo, Cha vel feme ocsyn ta slane er yn er-lhee: agh ec sleih chingey.

And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick.


Cha daink mish dy eamagh er yn vooinjer chairagh, agh er peccee gys arrys.

I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.


As dooyrt ad roo, Cre'n-fa ta ynseydee Ean trostey dy mennick, as jannoo padjeryn, as myrgeddin ynseydee ny Phariseeyn; agh ta'n vooinjer ayd's gee as giu?

And they said unto him, Why do the disciples of John fast often, and make prayers, and likewise the disciples of the Pharisees; but thine eat and drink?


As dooyrt eh roo, Bailliu mooinjer y chamyr-phoosee dy hrostey, choud as ta dooinney yn phoosee mâroo?

And he said unto them, Can ye make the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them?


Agh hig ny laghyn, tra vees dooinney yn phoosee er ny ghoaill ersooyl voue, as eisht nee ad trostey ayns ny laghyn shen.

But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days.


As loayr eh myrgeddin coraa-dorraghey roo, Cha vel dooinney erbee cur peesh dy eaddagh noa er shenn gharmad: er-nonney, ta chammah yn noa raipey yn laane lesh, as cha vel yn pheesh va goit ass yn noa coardail rish y chenn.

And he spake also a parable unto them; No man putteth a piece of a new garment upon an old; if otherwise, then both the new maketh a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new agreeth not with the old.


As cha vel dooinney erbee cur feeyn noa ayns shenn voteilyn er-nonney scoltee yn feeyn noa ny boteilyn, as bee eh deayrtit, as bee ny boteilyn dy choayl er.

And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish.


Agh shegin da feeyn noa v'er ny chur ayns boteilyn noa; as t'ad ny-neesht sauchey.

But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved.


Chamoo ta dooinney erbee, erreish da v'er n'iu shenn feeyn, chelleeragh shirrey feeyn noa: son t'eh gra, Ta'n shenn ny share.

No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new: for he saith, The old is better.
