And it came to pass also on another sabbath, that he entered into the synagogue and taught: and there was a man whose right hand was withered.


As va sooill gheyre ec ny scruderyn as ny Phariseeyn er, dy yeeaghyn jinnagh eh eh y lheihys er laa yn doonaght: dy voddagh cooish chassid 've oc n'o?.

And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases;

Bannit ta shiuish ta accryssagh nish: son bee shiu er nyn yannoo magh. Bannit ta shiuish ta nish dobberan: son nee shiu garaghtee.

Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.


Bannit ta shiuish, tra ta deiney cur feoh diu, as tra nee ad nyn scarrey shiu voue, as nyn oltooaney shiu, as nyn ennym y ghiarey magh myr olk, er coontey Mac y dooinney.

Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.


Agh smerg diuish verchee: son ta shiu er gheddyn nyn gherjagh.

Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.


Agh ta mish gra riuish ta clashtyn, Bee-jee graihagh er nyn noidyn, bee-jee dooie roosyn ta cur feoh diu:

But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,


Bannee-jee adsyn ta gwee mollaght diu, as gow-jee padjer er nyn son ocsyn ta cur seaghyn erriu.

Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.


As huggeysyn woaillys oo er y derrey lieckan, chyndaa myrgeddin yn lieckan elley: as eshyn ghoys ersooyl dty chloagey, ny bee noi dty chooat y lhiggey lesh myrgeddin.

And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also.


Cur da dy chooilley ghooinney ta jannoo aghin hood; as jehsyn ta goaill ersooyl dty chooid voïd, ny shir ad reesht.

Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.


As myr bailliuish deiney dy yannoo riuish, jean-jee shiuish myrgeddin roosyn.

And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.


Son my ta shiu dooie dauesyn ta dooie riu, s'beg ta nyn mooise; son ta eer drogh-yantee dooie dauesyn ta dooie roo.

For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.


As my ta shiu jannoo mie dauesyn ta jannoo mie diuish, cre'n booise ta nyn gour? son ta ny eer drogh-yantee jannoo yn lheid cheddin.

And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.


As my ta shiu geeasaght dauesyn voue ta shiu jeeaghyn son cooilleeney, cre ta nyn mooise? son ta eer drogh-sleih geeasaght da drogh-sleih; dy gheddyn wheesh cheddin reesht.

And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.


Agh cur-jee graih da nyn noidyn, as jean-jee mie, as eeasee-jee, fegooish jerkal rish veg y gheddyn reesht: as s'mooar vees nyn leagh! as bee shiu cloan yn Er-syrjey: son t'eh dooie da'n vooinjer neu-wooisal as ny mee-chrauee.

But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.


Bee-jee er-y-fa shen myghinagh, myr ta'n Ayr eu myrgeddin myghinagh.

Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.


Ny jean-jee briwnys, as cha bee shiu er nyn mriwnys: ny jean-jee deyrey, as cha bee shiu er nyn gheyrey: leih-jee, as yiow shiu leih:

Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:


Jean-jee coyrt, as bee eh er ny choyrt diu; towse mie, jingit sheese, as criht cooidjagh, as roie harrish, ver deiney diu ayns nyn oghrish. Son lesh y towse cheddin ta shiu towse, bee eh er ny howse diu reesht.

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.


As loayr eh coraa-dorraghey roo, Vod y doal shooyll kione y doal? as nagh duitt ad ny-neesht ayns y jeeg?

And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?


Cha vel y schoillar erskyn e vainshter: agh bee dy chooilley unnane ta slane-ynsit, corrym rish e vainshter.

The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.


As cre'n-fa t'ou cronnaghey yn brenneein t'ayns sooill dty vraarey, agh cha vel oo gennaghtyn yn darrag t'ayns dty hooill hene?

And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?


Ny kys oddys oo gra rish dty vraar, Vraar, lhig dou yn brenneein y ghoaill ass dty hooill's, tra nagh vel oo goaill tastey dy vel darrag ayns dty hooill hene? Er-crauee-oalsey, tilg hoshiaght yn darrag ass dty hooill hene, eisht bee soilshey ayd dy ghoaill yn brenneein ass sooill dty vraarey.

Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother's eye.


Son cha vel billey mie tilgey drogh vess: ny drogh villey tilgey mess mie.

For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.


Son ta dy chooilley villey er ny chronnaghey liorish e vess: son cha vel mess y villey figgagh er ny heiy jeh drineyn, ny mess y villey-feeyney jeh thammag-ghress.

For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.


Ta dooinney mie ass stoyr mie e chree, cur magh shen ny ta mie: as drogh-ghooinney ass drogh stoyr e chree, gymmyrkey shen ny ta olk: son magh ass stoyr y chree ta'n beeal loayrt.

A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.


As cre'n-fa ta shiu dy my enmys Hiarn, Hiarn, fegooish jannoo ny reddyn ta mee dy ghra?

And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?


Quoi-erbee ta cheet hym's, as clashtyn my ghoan, as jannoo ymmyd mie jeu, jeeagh-ym's diu quoi rish t'eh er ny hoylaghey.

Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:


T'eh er ny hoylaghey rish dooinney ren thie y hroggal, as chleiy dy dowin, as hoie yn undin er creg: as tra dhatt yn ushtey, vrish yn thooilley stiagh dy trome er y thie shen, agh cha yiarg eh er y chraa eh; er-yn-oyr dy row yn undin echey er creg.

He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.


Agh eshyn ta clashtyn as nagh vel jannoo ymmyd mie jeh, t'eh goll-rish dooinney, ren fegooish undin thie y hroggal er yn ooir, as ren y thooilley brishey stiagh dy trome, as chelleeragh huitt eh, as s'mooar va toyrt-mow yn thie shen.

But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.
