The Bible


Eisht deie eh er y daa ostyl yeig cooidjagh, as hug eh daue pooar as eaghtyrys harrish dy chooilley ghrogh-spyrryd, as dy lheihys doghanyn.

Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.


As hug eh ad magh dy phreacheil reeriaght Yee, as dy laanaghey sleih chingey.

And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.


As dooyrt eh roo, Ny cur-jee lhieu nhee erbee son nyn yurnah, chamoo luirg, ny spagey, ny arran, ny argid; as ny lhig da daa chooat y pheesh y ve eu.

And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece.


As thie erbee dy jed shiu stiagh ayn, gow-jee aaght ayns shen, derrey hed shiu reue.

And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence depart.


As quoi-erbee nagh jean goaill riu, tra aagys shiu yn ard-valley shen, crie-jee yn eer joan jeh ny cassyn eu, son feanish nyn 'oi

And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.


As hie ad magh, as jimmee ad trooid ny baljyn, preacheil yn sushtal, as lheihys dy chooilley raad.

And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing every where.


Nish va Herod yn tetrarch er chlasht yn jeh ooilley e yannoo: as v'eh seaghnit, er-y-fa dy row paart gra, dy row Ean er n'irree veih ny merriu:

Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by him: and he was perplexed, because that it was said of some, that John was risen from the dead;


As paart, dy row Elias er jeet kionfenish: as feallagh elley, dy row fer jeh ny shenn adeyryn er n'irree reesht.

And of some, that Elias had appeared; and of others, that one of the old prophets was risen again.


As dooyrt Herod, Jeh Ean ren mish yn kione y ghoaill; agh quoi eh shoh jeh ta mee clashtyn lheid ny reddyn? As v'eh aggindagh dy akin eh.

And Herod said, John have I beheaded: but who is this, of whom I hear such things? And he desired to see him.


As tra va ny ostyllyn er jeet reesht, dinsh ad da [Yeesey] ooilley ny v'ad er n'yannoo. As ghow eh ad, as hie eh dy lhiattee gys boayl er-lheh ayns yn aasagh, bentyn gys ard-valley enmyssit Bethsaida

And the apostles, when they were returned, told him all that they had done. And he took them, and went aside privately into a desert place belonging to the city called Bethsaida.


As tra hooar y pobble fys er, deiyr ad er: as hug eh oltaghey daue, as loayr eh roo jeh reeriaght Yee, as laanee eh adsyn va feme slaanaghey.

And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and he received them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that had need of healing.


As tra va'n laa faggys ceaut, haink yn daa ostyl yeig as dooyrt ad rish, Lhig y raad da'n pobble, dy vod ad goll roue gys ny baljyn as er y cheer mygeayrt, dy gheddyn aaght as beaghey: son ta shin ayns shoh ayns boayl faasagh.

And when the day began to wear away, then came the twelve, and said unto him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the towns and country round about, and lodge, and get victuals: for we are here in a desert place.


Agh dooyrt eh roo, Cur-jee shiuish bee daue. As dooyrt ad, Cha vel ain agh queig bwilleenyn as daa eeast; mannagh jem mayd dy chionnaghey bee son ooilley yn pobble shoh.

But he said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, We have no more but five loaves and two fishes; except we should go and buy meat for all this people.


Son v'ad mysh queig thousane dooinney. As dooyrt eh rish e ostyllyn, Cur-jee orroo soie sheese, jeih as da-eed ayns sheshaght.

For they were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, Make them sit down by fifties in a company.


As ren ad shen, as hug ad orroo ooilley soie sheese.

And they did so, and made them all sit down.


Eisht ghow eh ny queig bwilleenyn as y daa eeast, as yeeagh eh seose gys niau, as vannee eh, as vrish eh, as hug eh ad da e ostyllyn dy hoiaghey roish y pobble.

Then he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed them, and brake, and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude.


As ren ad ooilley gee, as v'ad er nyn yannoo magh: as hrog ad jeh'n fooilliagh daag ad, lane daa vaskad jeig.

And they did eat, and were all filled: and there was taken up of fragments that remained to them twelve baskets.


As haink eh gy-kione, myr v'eh ec padjer ayns ynnyd er-lheh, as e ostyllyn marish: dy denee eh jeu, gra, Cre ta'n pobble dy ghra my-mychione's, quoi mee?

And it came to pass, as he was alone praying, his disciples were with him: and he asked them, saying, Whom say the people that I am?


Dreggyr adsyn, as dooyrt ad, Ean Bashtey: agh ta paart gra, Elias: as paart elley, dy vel fer jeh ny shenn adeyryn er n'irree reesht.

They answering said, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and others say, that one of the old prophets is risen again.


Dooyrt eshyn roo, Agh quoi ta shiuish gra dy vel mee? Dreggyr Peddyr as dooyrt eh, Yn Creest dy Yee.

He said unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said, The Christ of God.


As hug eh currym gyere orroo, gyn ad dy insh shen da dooinney erbee,

And he straitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no man that thing;


Gra, Shegin da Mac y dooinney ymmodee reddyn y hurranse, as ve beg soit jeh liorish y chanstyr, as ny ard-saggyrtyn, as ny scrudeyryn, as ve er ny varroo, as girree reesht yn trass laa.

Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day.


As dooyrt eh roo ooilley, My ta dooinney erbee aggindagh geiyrt orrym's lhig da eh-hene y obbal, as e chrosh y hroggal gagh laa, as geiyrt orrym.

And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.


Son quoi-erbee baillish e vioys y hauail, caillee eh eh: agh quoi-erbee chaillys e vioys er my ghraih's, sauee eh shoh eh.

For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.


Son cre'n vondeish t'ec dooinney, my chosnys eh yn seihll ooilley, as eh-hene dy ve caillit, ny ceaut ersooyl?

For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?


Son quoi-erbee ghoys nearey jeem's as jeh my ghoan, jehsyn ghoys yn Mac dooinney nearey, tra hig eh ayns e ghloyr hene, as gloyr e Ayrey, as ny ainleyn casherick.

For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels.


Agh ta mee ginsh diu ayns firrinys, dy vel paart nyn shassoo ayns shoh nagh jean blashtyn er y baase, derrey hee ad reeriaght

But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.


As haink eh gy-kione mygeayrt hoght laa lurg ny raaghyn shoh, dy ghow eh marish, Peddyr as Ean as Jamys, as dy jagh eh seose er slieau dy ghoaill padjer.

And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.


As myr v'eh ayns padjer, va cummey yn eddin echey er ny chaghlaa, as va'n coamrey echey gial as sollys.

And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.


As cur-my-ner va daa ghooinney taggloo rish, ta shen dy ghra Moses as Elias:

And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias:


Haink kionfenish ayns gloyr, as loayr ad heh e vaase, v'eh dy hurranse ec Jerusalem.

Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.


Agh haink cadley trome er Peddyr as orroosyn va marish: as tra v'ad er ghoostey, honnick ad yn ghloyr echey, as y daa ghooinney va nyn shassoo marish.

But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him.


As haink eh gy-kione myr v'ad goll dy aagail eh, dy dooyrt Peddyr rish Yeesey, Vainshter, s'mie dooin dy ve ayns shoh; as lhig dooin three cabbaneyn y yannoo, cabbane er dty hon's, as cabbane son Moses, as cabbane son Elias: s'coan toiggal cre v'eh dy ghra.

And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: not knowing what he said.


Choud as v'eh loayrt shoh, haink bodjal lesh scadoo harrystoo: as ghow ad aggle myr va'n bodjal cheet moo.

While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud.


As haink coraa ass y vodjal, gra, Shoh my vac graihagh; eaisht-jee rishyn.

And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.


As lurg y choraa, hooar ad Yeesey ny lomarcan: as dreill ad shoh oc hene, as cha dinsh ad da dooinney erbee ayns ny laghyn shen, veg jeh ny reddyn v'ad er vakin.

And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And they kept it close, and told no man in those days any of those things which they had seen.


As haink eh gy-kione yn nah laa tra v'ad er jeet neose jeh'n clieau, dy daink ymmodee ny whail.

And it came to pass, that on the next day, when they were come down from the hill, much people met him.


As cur-my-ner, deie dooinney jeh'n cheshaght, gra, Vainshter, ta mee guee ort jeeagh er my vac, son she my ynrycan lhiannoo eh.

And, behold, a man of the company cried out, saying, Master, I beseech thee, look upon my son: for he is mine only child.


As cur-my-ner, ta spyrryd dy ghoaill eh, as doaltattym t'eh gyllagh; as tuittym neeal, t'eh keshal, as s'coan t'eh cheet huggey hene, erreish da ve dy mooar broojit.

And, lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; and it teareth him that he foameth again, and bruising him hardly departeth from him.


As ghuee mee er dty ostyllyn ad dy hilgey magh eh, agh cha daink eh lhieu.

And I besought thy disciples to cast him out; and they could not.


As dreggyr Yeesey, gra, O heeloghe vee-chredjuagh as roonagh, caïd ta mish dy ve mêriu, as dy hurranse diu? Cur lhiat dty vac ayns shoh.

And Jesus answering said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son hither.


As myr v'eh foast cheet, cheau yn drogh-spyrryd sheese eh ayns strepyn: agh vaggyr Yeesey er y spyrryd neu-ghlen, as laanee eh yn lhiannoo, as livrey eh eh reesht gys e ayr.

And as he was yet a coming, the devil threw him down, and tare him. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and delivered him again to his father.


As v'ad ooilley ayns ard-yindys jeh pooar niartal Yee: Agh choud as va dy chooilley unnane ayns ard-imnea mychione dagh nhee va Yeesey er n'yannoo, dooyrt eh rish e ostyllyn,

And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God. But while they wondered every one at all things which Jesus did, he said unto his disciples,


Lhig da ny raaghyn shoh goll dowin ayns nyn glashtyn: son bee yn Mac dooinney er ny livrey gys laueyn deiney.

Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of man shall be delivered into the hands of men.


Agh cha hoig ad y raa shoh, as ve gyn yss daue, nagh row toiggal oc jeh: as va aggle orroo fenaght jeh mychione y raa cheddin.

But they understood not this saying, and it was hid from them, that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him of that saying.


Eisht hie ad son argane ry-cheilley, quoi jeu syrjey veagh.

Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest.


As Yeesey toiggal smooinaghtyn y chree oc, ghow eh lhiannoo, as hoie eh eh liorish,

And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him,


As dooyrt eh roo, Quoi-erbee nee soiaghey jeh'n lhiannoo shoh ayns m'ennym's, t'eh jannoo soiaghey jeem's: as quoi-erbee nee soiaghey jeem's, t'eh soiaghey jehsyn t'er my choyrt: son eshyn sloo ta nyn mast' eu ooilley, eshyn syrjey vees.

And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great.


As dreggyr Ean as dooyrt eh, Vainshter, honnick shin fer castey drogh spyrrydyn ayns dty ennym's; as liett shin eh, er-yn-oyr nagh vel eh geiyrt ort's mârinyn.

And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us.


As dooyrt Yeesey rish, Ny jean-jee eh y lhiettal: son, eshyn nagh vel nyn 'oï, t'eh lhien.

And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.


As haink eh gy-kione, myr va'n traa tayrn er-gerrey dasyn dy ve goit seose, dy row eh dy shickyr kiarit er soiaghey e eddin dy gholl gys Jerusalem.

And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem,


As hug eh chaghteryn roish: as jimmee ad, as haink ad gys balley jeh ny Samaritanee dy aarlaghey er e hon.

And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.


Agh cha dug adsyn oltaghey-bea da, er-yn-oyr dy dug ad my-ner dy row eh goll gys Jerusalem.

And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem.


As tra honnick e ostyllyn Jamys as Ean shoh, dooyrt ad, Hiarn, nailt shin dy harey aile orroo veih niau, dy stroie ad, eer myr ren Elias?

And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did?


Agh hyndaa eh, as hug eh oghsan daue, gra, Cha s'eu cre'n monney dy spyrryd ta shiu jeh.

But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.


Son cha vel Mac yn dooinney er jeet dy stroie bioys deiney, agh dy nyn sauail. As hie ad roue gys balley elley.

For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.


As haink eh gy-kione, myr v'ad goll er y raad, dy dooyrt dooinney dy row rish, Hiarn, eiyr-yms ort raad erbee dy jed oo.

And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.


As dooyrt Yeesey rish, Ta tuill ec ny shynnee, as idd ec eeanlee yn aer, agh ec Mac yn dooinney cha vel boayl, ayn dy chur e chione fo.

And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.


As dooyrt eh rish fer elley, Eiyr orrym: Agh dooyrt eshyn, Hiarn, cur kied dou hoshiaght goll thie dy oanluckey my ayr.

And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.


Dooyrt Yeesey rish, Lhig da ny merriu nyn merriu y oanluckey; agh gow uss royd as jean reeriaght Yee y phreacheil.

Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.


As dooyrt fer elley myrgeddin rish Hiarn, eiyr-yms ort-agh lhig dou hoshiaght bannaght y aagail ec y vooinjer t'ec my hie.

And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.


As dooyrt Yeesey rish, Dooinney erbee t'er chur e laue gys y cheeaght, as ta jeeaghyn back, t'eh an-chooid son reeriaght Yee.

And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
