The Bible


Nish tra v'eh erreish ooilley ny goan shoh y loayrt ayns clashtyn y phobble, hie eh stiagh ayns Capernaum.

Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, he entered into Capernaum.


As va centurion dy row va fer-mooinjerey echey, v'eh dy mooar soiaghey jeh, as v'eh ching, as raad y vaaish.

And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die.


As tra cheayll eh jeh Yeesey, hug eh shanstyr ny Hewnyn huggey, guee er eh dy heet dy laanaghey e er-mooinjerey.

And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant.


As tra v'ad er jeet gys Yeesey, ren ad aghin huggey dy jeean, gra, Dy row eshyn feeu v'eh dy yannoo shoh er y hon:

And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this:


Son t'eh ny charrey da'n ashoon ain, as t'eh er hroggal synagogue dooin.

For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue.


Eisht hie Yeesey mâroo. As tra v'eh er jeet er-gerrey da'n thie, hug y centurion caarjyn huggey, gra rish, Hiarn, ny boir oo hene, son cha vel mish feeu oo dy heet stiagh fo my chlea.

Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof:


As er-yn-oyr shen cha yeeagh mee orrym pene dy ve feeu dy heet hood: agh loayr y fockle, as nee my er-mooinjerey coural.

Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed.


Son ta mish mee hene my ghooinney ayns pooar, as ta sidooryn aym foym, as ta mee gra rish shoh, Immee, as t'eh goll: as rish fer elley, Tar, as t'eh cheet: as rish my harvaant, Jean shoh, as t'eh dy yannoo eh.

For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.


Tra cheayll Yeesey shoh, ghow eh yindys, as hyndaa eh mygeayrt, as dooyrt eh rish y pobble va geiyrt er, Ta mee gra riu, Lheid y credjue lajer shoh, cha vel mee er gheddyn ayns Israel hene.

When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.


As tra haink ny chaghteryn reesht gys y thie, hooar ad dy row yn fer-mooinjerey va ching dy slane er choural.

And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the servant whole that had been sick.


As haink eh gy-kione yn laa er-giyn dy jagh eh gys ard-valley va enmyssit Nain, as hie ymmodee jeh e ynseydee marish, as mooarrane sleih.

And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people.


Nish tra haink eh er-gerrey da giat yn ard-valley, cur-my-ner, va sleih cur lhieu magh dooinney marroo, va ny ynrycan mac da e voir, as v'eeish ny ben-treoghe: as va ymmodee jeh sleih yn ard-valley mâree.

Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her.


As tra honnick y Chiarn ee, va chymmey echey urree, as dooyrt eh r'ee, Ny jean keayney.

And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not.


As haink eh, as venn eh rish y carbyd (as hass adsyn va fo) as dooyrt eh, Ghooinney aeg, ta mee gra rhyt, Irree.

And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.


As hoie yn dooinney marroo seose, as ren eh toshiaght dy loayrt: as livrey eh eh gys e voir.

And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother.


As haink aggle orroo ooilley: as hug ad moylley da Jee, gra, Ta phadeyr mooar er n'irree seose ny mast' ain; as, Ta Jee er yeeaghyn er e phobble.

And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath visited his people.


As hie yn goo shoh magh my-e-chione trooid ooilley Judea, as trooid ooilley yn cheer mygeayrt.

And this rumour of him went forth throughout all Judaea, and throughout all the region round about.


As hug ynseydee Ean coontey da jeh ooilley ny reddyn shoh.

And the disciples of John shewed him of all these things.


As deïe Ean er jees jeh e ynseydee as hug eh ad er chaghteraght gys Yeesey, gra, Nee uss Eh va ry-hoi cheet, ny vel shin dy yeeaghyn son fer elley?

And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?


Tra va ny deiney er jeet huggey, dooyrt ad, Ta Ean Bashtey er nyn goyrt shin dy ?naght jeed, Nee uss Eh va ry-hoi cheet, ny vel shin dy yeeaghyn son fer elley?

When the men were come unto him, they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?


As ayns yn oor cheddin v'eh lheihys ymmodee jeh ny aslayntyn as ny doghanyn, as ny drogh-spyrrydyn oc, as da ymmodee va doal v'eh coyrt soilshey.

And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight.


Eisht dreggyr Yeesey as dooyrt eh roo, Immee-jee reue, as insh-jee da Ean cre y reddyn ta shiu er vakin as er chlashtyn kys dy vel ny doail geddyn nyn soilshey, ny croobee shooyll, ny louraanee er nyn ghlenney, ny beuyr clashtyn, ny merriu er nyn mioghey, as y sushtal er ny phreacheil da ny boghtyn.

Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.


As bannit ta eshyn nagh jean beg y hoiaghey jeem's.

And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.


As tra va chaghteryn Ean er n'immeeaght, ren eh toshiaght dy ghra rish y pobble mychione Ean, Cre hie shiu magh gys yn aasagh dy akin? Nee cuirtliagh criht lesh y gheay.

And when the messengers of John were departed, he began to speak unto the people concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness for to see? A reed shaken with the wind?


Agh cre hie shiu magh dy akin? Dooinney soit magh ayns coamrey moyrnagh! Cur-my-ner t'adsyn ta ceau coamrey costal, as farrail dy seyr, ayns plaaseyn reeoil.

But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they which are gorgeously apparelled, and live delicately, are in kings' courts.


Agh cre hie shiu magh dy akin? Phadeyr? dy jarroo, ta mee gra riu, as fer s'ooasle na phadeyr.

But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and much more than a prophet.


Shoh eh jeh te scruit, Cur-my-ner, ta mee cur my haghter magh royd, dy chiartaghey yn raad kiongoyrt rhyt.

This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.


Son ta mee gra riu, Ny mast' oc syn t'er nyn ruggey jeh mraane, cha vel phadeyr syrjey na Ean Bashtey: agh ta'n fer sloo t'ayns reeriaght Yee ny syrjey na eshyn.

For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.


As ren ooilley yn pobble cheayll eh as ny publicanee Jee y heyrey, as v'ad er nyn mashtey lesh bashtey Ean.

And all the people that heard him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John.


Agh ren ny Phariseeyn as fir-ynsee yn leigh soiaghey beg jeh coyrle Yee nyn 'oï oc hene, as cha row ad er nyn mashtey liorish.

But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God against themselves, being not baptized of him.


As dooyrt y Chiarn, Cre gys nee'm deiney yn cheeloghe shoh y hoylaghey? as cre rish t'ad goll?

And the Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like?


T'ad goll-rish cloan, ta nyn soie ayns ny margaghyn, geamagh yn derrey yeh gys y jeh elley, as gra, Ta shin er n'yannoo bingys diu, as cha vel shiu er ghaunsin: ta shin er hroggal bardoon diu, as cha vel shiu er ghobberan.

They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, and calling one to another, and saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned to you, and ye have not wept.


Son cha daink Ean Bashtey gee arran, ny giu feeyn; as ta shiu gra, Ta drogh spyrryd echey.

For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and ye say, He hath a devil.


Ta'n Mac dooinney er jeet gee as giu; as ta shiu gra, Cur-my-ner dooinney jollyssagh, as iuder-feeyney, carrey dy phublicanee as dy pheccee.

The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners


Agh ta creenaght er ny heyrey liorish ooilley e cloan.

But wisdom is justified of all her children.


As chuir fer jeh ny Phariseeyn eh gys bee marish. As hie eh stiagh ayns thie yn Pharisee, as hoie eh sheese gys bee.

And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him. And he went into the Pharisee's house, and sat down to meat.


As cur-my-ner va ben ayns yn ard-valley, va ny drogh yantagh, tra va fys eck dy row Yeesey ny hoie ec bee ayns thie yn Pharisee, hug ee lh'ee box alabaster dy ooil chostal.

And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment,


As hass ee ec e chassyn cheu e chooylloo keayney, as ren ee toshiaght dy niee e chassyn lesh jeir, as rub ee ad lesh folt e king, as phaag ee e chassyn, as ren ee ad y ooillaghey lesh yn ooil.

And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.


Nish yn Pharisee ren y chuirrey eh, tra honnick eh shoh, loayr eh cheu-sthie jeh hene, gra, Veagh fys er ve ec y dooinney shoh, dy beagh eh ny adeyr, quoi, as cre'n monney dy ven ee shoh, ta bentyn rish: son t'ee ny ben pheccoil.

Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner.


As dreggyr Yeesey, as dooyrt eh rish, Simon, ta red aym's dy ghra rhyt, As dooyrt eh, Abbyr eh, vainshter.

And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on.


Va dooinney dy row, as jees ayns lhiastynys da: va'n derrey yeh lhiastyn queig cheead ping, as y jeh elley jeih pingyn as da-eed.

There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.


As tra nagh row oc dy eeck, leih eh daue ny-neesht dy arryltagh. Insh dou eisht, quoi jeu s'booisal vees da?

And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?


Dreggyr Simon as dooyrt eh, Er-lhiam dy nee eshyn, da smoo ren eh leih. As dooyrt eh rish, T'ou er vriwnys dy cairagh.

Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.


As hyndaa eh gys y ven, as dooyrt eh rish Simon, Vel oo cur-my-ner yn ven shoh? Haink mee stiagh ayns dty hie's, as cha dug oo dou ushtey son my chassyn: agh t'eeish er niee my chassyn lesh jeir, as er jyrmagh ad lesh folt e king.

And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head.


Cha dug uss paag dou: agh ta'n ven shoh, er-dyn traa haink mee stiagh, er ve kinjagh paagey my chassyn.

Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet.


My chione lesh ooil cha ren oo y ooillaghey: agh ta'n ven shoh er n'ooillaghey my chassyn lesh ooil.

My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment.


Shen-y-fa ta mee gra rhyt, Ta ny peccaghyn eck ta ymmodee, er nyn leih jee: shen-y-fa wheesh shen smoo ta yn ghraih eck: agh dasyn ta beggan er ny leih, cha vel e ghraih agh beggan.

Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.


As dooyrt eh r'ee, Ta dty pheccaghyn er nyn leih dhyt.

And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.


As ren y vooinjer va nyn soie ec bee mârish, toshiaght dy ghra cheu-sthie jeu hene, Quoi eh shoh ta myrgeddin leih peccaghyn?

And they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also?


As dooyrt eh rish y ven, Ta dty chredjue er dty hauail; immee ayns shee.

And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.
