The Bible


As haink eh gy-kione, myr v'eh ec padjer ayns ynnyd dy row, tra daag eh jeh, dy dooyrt fer jeh e ostyllyn rish, Hiarn ynsee dooinyn dy ghoaill padjer, myr dynsee Ean myrgeddin da ny ynseydee echeysyn.

And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.


As dooyrt eh, Tra ghoys shiu padjer, abbyr-jee, Ayr ain t'ayns niau, Casherick dy row dty ennym. Dy jig dty reeriaght. Dty aigney dy row jeant er y thalloo, myr te ayns niau.

And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.


Cur dooin laa lurg laa nyn arran gagh laa.

Give us day by day our daily bread.


As leih dooin nyn beccaghyn; son ta shinyn myrgeddin leih da dy chooilley unnane ta ayns lhiastynys dooin. As ny leeid shin ayns miolagh, agh livrey shin veih olk.

And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.


As dooyrt eh roo, Quoi jiuish vees carrey echey, as hed huggey ec main-oie, as jir rish, Charrey, eeasee dou three bwilleenyn;

And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves;


Son ta dooinney-mooinjerey dou, va er e yurnah, er jeet hym, as cha vel monney aym dy hoiaghey roish:

For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set before him?


As freggyr-ee eshyn veih cheu-sthie gra, Ny boir mee: ta'n dorrys nish jeight, as ta my chloan 'sy lhiabbee marym; cha voddym girree dy chur dhyt.

And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee.


Ta mee gra riu, Ga nagh n'irree eh dy chur da, er-coontey dy nee e charrey eh: ny-yeih kyndagh rish yn jeeanid echey, irree eh, as ver eh da whilleen as vees eh ny eme.

I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth.


As ta mish gra riuish, Yeearree-jee, as yiow shiu: shir-jee, as nee shiu feddyn: bee-jee aignagh fosley y gheddyn, as bee eh er ny osley diu.

And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.


Son ta dy chooilley unnane ta geearree, geddyn: as y fer ta shirrey, feddyn: as eshyn ta aignagh fosley y gheddyn, bee eh er ny osley da.

For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.


My nee mac arran y hirrey er fer jiuish ta ny ayr, nee clagh ver eh da? ny my hirrys eh eeast, jean eh ayns ynnyd eeast ard-nieu y chur da?

If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?


Ny my hirrys eh ooh, jeb eh scorpion da?

Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?


My ta toiggal er-y-fa shen euish, ta olk, kys dy choyrt giootyn mie da nyn gloan; cre-woad smoo nee yn Ayr flaunyssagh eu yn Spyrryd Noo y choyrt dauesyn ta jannoo aghin huggey?

If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?


As v'eh tilgey magh drogh-spyrryd, as v'eh balloo. As haink eh gy-kione, tra va'n drogh-spyrryd er gholl ass dy loayr y balloo: as ghow yn pobble yindys.

And he was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and the people wondered.


Agh dooyrt paart jeu, She liorish Beelzebub, yn ard drogh-spyrryd, t'eh castey drogh-spyrrydyn.

But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub the chief of the devils.


As va feallagh elley er-chee prowal eh shirrey er cowrey veih niau.

And others, tempting him, sought of him a sign from heaven.


Agh eshyn toiggal ny smooinaghtyn oc dooyrt roo, Ta dy chooilley reeriaght ta girree-magh n'oi hene, er ny choyrt mow: as thie ta n'oi hene goll naardey.

But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.


As my ta'n jouyl girree-magh n'oi hene, kys nee yn reeriaght echey shassoo? er-y-fa dy vel shiu gra, dy nee liorish Beelzebub ta mish castey drogh-spyrrydyn.

If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub.


As my ta mish liorish Beelzebub castey drogh-spyrrydyn, quoi liorish ta ny mec eu hene dy chastey ad? bee adsyn er-y-fa shen ny briwnyn eu.

And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges.


Agh my ta mish liorish mair Yee tilgey magh drogh-spyrrydyn, fegooish dooyt ta reeriaght Yee er jeet erriuish.

But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.


Tra ta dooinney-caggee eillit freayll arrey er e hie, ta e chooid sauchey.

When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:


Agh tra ta fer stroshey na eh soiaghey er, as geddyn yn varriaght, t'eh goaill veih ooilley e eilley, huggey v'eh treishteil, as t'eh rheynn e chooid.

But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.


Eshyn nagh vel lhiam, t'eh m'oi; as eshyn nagh vel chymsaghey marym, t'eh skeayley.

He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.


Tra ta'n spyrryd neu-ghlen er gholl ass dooinney, t'eh shooyll trooid faasaghyn fadaneagh, chee aash, agh ayns fardail, eisht t'eh gra, Hem reesht gys my hie, veih haink mee.

When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out.


As tra t'eh cheet, t'eh dy gheddyn eh sceabit as soit magh dy stooamey.

And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished.


Eisht t'eh goll as goaill marish shiaght spyrrydyn elley, ny smessey na eh-hene, as t'ad goll stiagh as cummal ayns shen: as ta stayd yerrinagh yn dooinney shen ny s'doogh na'n toshiaght.

Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.


As haink eh gy-kione, myr v'eh loayrt ny goan shoh, dy hrog ben dy row jeh'n cheshaght seose e coraa, as dooyrt ee rish, Bannit ta'n vrein ren oo y ymmyrkey, as ny keeaghyn t'ou er yiole.

And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked.


Agh dooyrt eshyn, Dy jarroo foddey s'bannee t'adsyn ta clashtyn goo Yee, as freayll eh.

But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.


As tra va'n pobble er nyn jaglym chion dy cheilley, ghow eh toshiaght dy ghra, s'drogh y cheeloghe shoh: t'ad shirrey cowrey, as cha bee cowrey er ny choyrt daue, agh cowrey yn phadeyr Jonas.

And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.


Son myr va Jonas ny chowrey da ny Nineviteyn, er yn aght cheddin neesht vees Mac y dooinney da'n cheeloghe shoh.

For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation.


Nee ben-reïn y jiass girree seose ayns briwnys noi deiney yn cheeloghe shoh, as ad y gheyrey: son haink ish veih ardjyn sodjey magh y thallooin dy chlashtyn creenaght Solomon; as cur-my-ner, ta fer syrjey na Solomon ayns shoh.

The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.


Nee deiney Nineveh girree seose ayns briwnys, as y cheeloghe shoh y gheyrey: son ghow adsyn arrys ec preacheil Yonas; as cur-my-ner, ta fer syrjey na Jonas ayns shoh.

The men of Nineve shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.


Cha vel dooinney erbee, tra t'eh er voaddey cainle, dy choyrt ee ayns ynnyd follit, ny fo saagh; agh ayns cainleyr, dy vod adsyn ta cheet stiagh yn soilshey y akin.

No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light.


Yn tooill ta cur soilshey da'n chorp: shen-y-fa tra ta dty hooill glen, bee dty chorp ooilley ayns slane soilshey: agh tra ta lheamys er dty hooill, bee dty chorp myrgeddin ayns slane dorraghys.

The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.


Cur twoaie er-y-fa shen nagh bee yn soilshey ta aynyd ny ghorraghys.

Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.


My ta ooilley dty chorp er-y-fa shen ayns slane soilshey, gyn dorraghys ayns ayrn erbee, bee yn clane sollys, myr t'ou, tra ta soilshey sollys ayd veih cainle,

If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.


As myr v'eh loayrt, chuir Pharisee dy row eh gys jinnair marish: as hie eh stiagh, as hoie eh sheese gys bee.

And as he spake, a certain Pharisee besought him to dine with him: and he went in, and sat down to meat.


As tra honnick yn Pharisee shoh, ghow eh yindys nagh niee eh (e laueyn) roish jinnair.

And when the Pharisee saw it, he marvelled that he had not first washed before dinner.


As dooyrt y Chiarn rish, Nish ta shiuish Phariseeyn glenney yn cappan as y claare er cheu-mooie: agh ta'n cheu-sthie eu lane dy hranlaase as dy olkys.

And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.


Gheiney vee-cheaylagh, nagh nee eshyn ren y cheu-mooie, ren y cheu-sthie myrgeddin?

Ye fools, did not he that made that which is without make that which is within also?


Agh cur-jee lheid as t'eu da ny boghtyn: as cur-my-ner, bee dy chooilley nhee glen diu.

But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold, all things are clean unto you.


Agh smerg diuish Phariseeyn: son ta shiu jagheenys mynthey, rue, as dy chooilley horch dy lossreeyn, agh s'beg ta shiu soiaghey jeh briwnys as graih Yee: ad shoh lhisagh shiu v'er n'yannoo, gyn faagail y chooid elley gyn jannoo.

But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.


Smerg diuish Phariseeyn: son shynney lhieu ny ard-stuill ayns ny kialteenyn, as sleih dy vannaghey diu ayns ny margaghyn.

Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets.


Smerg diuish scrudeyryn as Phariseeyn, chrauee-oalsey: son ta shiu myr oaiaghyn nagh vel ry-akin, as ny deiney ta shooyl harrystoo, cha vel fys oc dy vel ad ayn.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them.


Eisht dreggyr fer jeh fir-ynsee yn leigh, as dooyrt eh rish, Vainshter, liorish shen y ghra, t'ou dy oltooan shinyn myrgeddin.

Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus saying thou reproachest us also.


As dooyrt eh, Smerg diuish neesht fir-ynsee yn leigh son ta shiu laadey deiney lesh erraghyn doillee dy ve er nyn ymmyrkey, as cha vel shiu hene bentyn rish ny er raghyn lesh unnane jeh nyn meir.

And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.


Smerg diuish: son ta shiu troggal lhiaghtyn ny phadeyryn, as ny ayraghyn eu ren y varroo ad.

Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your fathers killed them.


Dy firrinagh ta shiu gymmyrkey feanish dy vel shiu lowal jeh jannoo ny ayraghyn eu: son ren adsyn dy jarroo y varroo ad, as ta shiuish coamrey ny lhiaghtyn oc.

Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.


As shoh yn oyr ta creenaght Yee er ghra, Ver-ym huc phadeyryn, as ostyllyn, as paart jeu nee ad y varroo, as tranlaase y yannoo orroo:

Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:


Dy vod fuill ooilley ny phadeyryn v'er ny gheayrtey er-dy hoshiaght y theihll v'er ny chooilleeney er y cheeloghe shoh;

That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;


Veih fuill Abel gys fuill Zacharias ren cherraghtyn eddyr yn altar as y chiamble: dy firrinagh ta mee gra riu, dy bee eh er ny chooilleeney er y cheeloghe shoh.

From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.


Smerg diu fir-ynsee yn leigh: son ta shiu er ghoaill ersooyl ogher yn ysseree: cha jagh shiu stiagh shiu hene, as adsyn va goll stiagh, ren shiu y lhiettal.

Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.


As tra v'eh er ghra ny reddyn shoh roo, ren ny scrudeyryn as ny Phariseeyn toshiaght dy êginaghey, as dy ghreinnaghey eh dy loayrt jeh ymmodee reddyn:

And as he said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge him vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things:


Lhie ayns farkiaght er e hon, as shegin er tayrtyn red ennagh ass e veeal son oyr plaiynt n'oi.

Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his mouth, that they might accuse him.
