The Bible


Nish mysh y traa shen va ymmodee erskyn-earroo dy leih er nyn jaglym cooidjagh, ayns wheesh as dy row ad stampey yn derrey yeh er yn jeh elley, ghow eh toshiaght dy ghra rish e ostyllyn, Erskyn ooilley bee-jee twoaiagh jeh soorid ny Phariseeyn, ta shen dy ghra, craueeaght oalsey.

In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.


Son cha vel nhee erbee follit nagh jig gys soilshey; ny kiellit, nagh jig er-ash.

For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.


Shen-y-fa cre-erbee ta shiuish er loayrt ayns y dorraghys, bee eh er ny chlashtyn ayns y toilshey: as shen ta shiu er ghra myr hannish, ayns shamyryn, bee eh er ny ockley magh er mullagh ny dhieyn.

Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.


As ta mee gra riuish, my chaarjyn, Ny gow-jee aggle rouesyn varrys y corp, as ny lurg shen nagh vel arragh oc oddys ad y yannoo.

And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.


Agh ver-yms raaue diu quoi roish ghoys shiu aggle: Gow-jee aggle roishyn, echey ta pooar, erreish da v'er varroo dy hilgey ayns niurin; dy jarroo ta mee dy ghra riu, Gow jee aggle roishyn.

But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.


Nagh vel queig sperriu er nyn greck son daa farling, as cha vel unnane oc jarroodit kiongoyrt rish Jee?

Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?


Agh ta eer renaigyn nyn ghing ooilley er nyn earroo. Ny gow-jee aggle er-y-fa shen: ta ny smoo dy ve soit jiuish, na jeh ymmodee sperriu.

But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.


Myrgeddin ta mee gra riu, Quoi-erbee ghoys rhyms kiongoyrt rish deiney, nee yn Mac dooinney myrgeddin goaill rishyn kiongoyrt rish ainleyn Yee.

Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:


Agh bee eshyn obbys mie fenish deiney, er ny obbal fenish ainleyn Yee.

But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.


As quoi-erbee loayrys fockle noi Mac y dooinney, bee eh er ny leih da: agh dasyn ta loayrt goan-mollaghtagh noi yn Spyrryd Noo, cha bee eh er ny leih.

And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.


As tra ver ad lhieu shiu gys ny quaiylyn, as gys fir-reill as pooaraghyn, ny bee-jee imneagh kys ny cre nee shiu y reggyrt, ny cre nee shiu y ghra:

And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say:


Son ynsee yn Spyrryd Noo diu, ayns yn oor cheddin cre lhisagh shiu y ghra.

For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.


As dooyrt fer jeh'n cheshaght rish Vainshter, loayr rish my vraar eh dy rheynn yn eiraght rhym.

And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me.


As dooyrt eh rish, Ghooinney, quoi t'er my hoiaghey's seose son briw ny rheynneyder harrishdiu?

And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you?


As dooyrt eh roo, Gow-jee tastey, as cur-jee twoaie jeh saynt: son cha vel maynrys bea yn dooinney lhie ayns mooarane e chooid-seihlt.

And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.


As loayr eh coraa-dorraghey roo, gra, Ren thalloo dooinney berchagh dy row mess y chur magh dy palchey.

And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:


As smooinee eh rish hene, gra, Cre share dou jannoo, tra nagh vel boayl tashtee aym dy ghoaill my hroar?

And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?


Eisht dooyrt eh, Shoh nee'm y yannoo: Lhieg-ym my hoaltyn, as trog-ym soaltyn smoo; as shen y raad nee'm ooilley my vess as my chooid y hashtey.

And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.


As jir-ym rish my annym, O my annym, ta mooarane cooid ayd tashtit seose cour ymmodee bleeantyn: gow dty aash, ee, iu, as bee gennal.

And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.


Agh dooyrt Jee rish, Uss ommydan yn oie noght vees dty annym er ny ghoaill void: quoi lesh eisht vees yn chooid shen t'ou uss er jaglym?

But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?


Myr shoh ta eshyn ta tashtey seose berchys ny chour hene, as nagh vel berchagh ass lieh Yee.

So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.


As dooyrt eh rish e ostyllyn, Shen y fa ta mish gra riuish, Ny bee-jee imneagh son nyn mea, cre nee shiu y ee: ny son nyn girp, cre ver shiu miu.

And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.


Ta'n vea ny smoo dy ve soit jeh na beaghey, as y corp na coamrey.

The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.


Smooinee-jee er ny fee: son cha vel ad cuirr, ny buinn: cha vel thie stoyr ny soalt oc, as ta Jee dyn meaghey ad: As nagh vel shiuish foddey share na ny eeanlee?

Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?


Quoi jiuish liorish smooinaghtyn dy imneagh oddys un chubit y chur gys e yrjid hene?

And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?


Mannagh vod shiuish wheesh shen hene y yannoo, cre'n-fa ta shiu imneagh son y chooid elley?

If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?


Gow-jee tastey jeh lileeyn ny magher agh kys t'ad gaase, cha vel ad tooilleil, chamoo t'ad sneeu: as foast ta mee gra riu, nagh row Solomon ayns ooilley e ghloyr er ny choamrey myr unnane jeu shoh.

Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.


My ta Jee eisht myr shoh coamrey blaa ny magheragh, ta jiu 'sy vagher, as mairagh ceaut ayns yn oghe: nagh jean eh foddey smoo er nyn son euish, O gheiney faase-chredjuagh?

If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?


As ny bee-jee seaghnit mysh cre ee-ys, ny cre iu-ys shiu, chamoo bee-jee jeh aigney imneagh nagh bee eh twoaiagh jeh, as giaree eh eh veih my-cheilley, as pointee eh e chronney marish y vooinjer vee-chredjuagh.

And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.


Son er ooilley ny reddyn shoh ta ashoonyn y theihll dy jeean aggindagh: agh ta fys ec yn Ayr eu dy vel shiu feme ny reddyn shoh.

For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.


Agh shir-jee hoshiaght reeriaght Yee, as bee shiu jeant magh lesh ooilley ny reddyn shoh.

But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.


Ny gow-jee aggle my hioltane veg; son she aigney-mie nyn Ayr eh; dy chur diuish yn reeriaght.

Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.


Creck-jee ny t'eu, as cur-jee da ny boghtyn: kiare-jee diu hene sporranyn nagh naase shenn, berchys ayns ny niaughyn nagh vel failleil, raad nagh vel y maarliagh cheet er-gerrey, ny'n lhemeen cur mow.

Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.


Son raad ta nyn merchys, shen y raad vees y cree eu myrgeddin.

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.


Lhig da ny meeghyn eu ve cryssit, as ny cainleyn eu foaddit;

Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;


As shiu hene goll-rish deiney ta farkiaght son cheet-thie nyn Jiarn veih'n vannish, ec y cheet echey tra nee eh cronkal dy vod ad fosley da chelleeragh.

And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.


Bannit ta ny sharvaantyn shen yiow yn Chiarn er nyn arrey, tra hig eh: dy firrinagh ta mee gra riu, dy gryss eh e gharmad mysh, as dy der eh orroo soie sheese gys bee, as dy jig eh magh dy hirveish orroo.

Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.


As my hig eh ayns yn nah arrey, ny my hig eh ayns y trass arrey, as ad y gheddyn myr shen, bannit ta'n vooinjer cheddin.

And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.


As shoh toig-jee, dy beagh fys er ve ec mainshter y thie cre'n oor veagh y maarliagh er jeet, veagh eh er ve er e arrey, as cha lhiggagh eh da e hie v'er ny vrishey stiagh.

And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.


Bee-jee shiuish myrgeddin er-y-fa shen er nyn arrey: son hig Mac y dooinney ec oor nagh vel shiu smooinaghtyn er.

Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.


Eisht dooyrt Peddyr rish, Hiarn nee orrinyn t'ou cheet 'sy choraa-dorraghey shoh, ny myrgeddin er ooilley?

Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all?


As dooyrt y Chiarn, Quoi eisht yn stiurt firrinagh as creeney shen nee e hiarn y yannoo ny er-reill er lught e hie, dy hirveish orroo nyn meaghey ayns traa cooie?

And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?


S'maynrey yn charvaant cheddin, yiow e hiarn tra hig eh jannoo myr shen.

Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.


Ayns firrinys ta mee gra riu, dy der eh da yn stiurtys er ooilley e chooid.

Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath.


Agh my jir y charvaant shen ayns e chree, Ta my hiarn lhiggey shaghey dy heet; as goaill er dy woalley ny fir-vooinjerey, as ny inneenyn, as dy ee, as dy iu, as dy ve er meshtey.

But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;


Hig chiarn y charvaant shen ec laa nagh bee eh jeeaghyn er e hon, as ayns oor nagh bee eh twoaiagh jeh, as giaree eh eh veih my-cheilley, as pointee eh e chronney marish y vooinjer vee-chredjuagh.

The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.


As y charvaant shen va toiggal aigney e hiarn, as nagh dooar eh-hene aarloo, as nagh ren cordail rish e aigney, s'mooar vees y kerraghey echey.

And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.


Agh eshyn nagh row toiggal, as ren foiljyn va toilliu kerraghey, cha bee yn kerraghey echey cha trome. Son da quoi erbee ta mooarane er ny choyrt, ersyn vees mooarane er ny hirrey: as da quoi-erbee ta lane currit er e churrym, veihsyn nee sleih jeeaghyn son ny smoo

But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.


Haink mish dy chur aile er y thalloo, as cre ta my yeearree, agh dy bee eh hannah er ny oaddey?

I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?


Agh ta bashtey ayms dy ve er my vashtey lesh, as kys ta mee eginit, derrey vees eh er ny chooilleeney?

But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished


Vel shiu smooinaghtyn dy daink mish dy chur shee er y thalloo? Cha nee, ta mee gra riu, agh anvea.

Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:


Son veih shoh magh bee queig ayns un thie noi-ry-hoi, three noi jees, as jees noi three.

For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.


Bee yn ayr noi yn mac, as y mac noi yn ayr; yn voir noi yn inneen, as yn inneen noi yn voir yn voir-'sy-leigh noi e ben chleuin, as y ven-chleuin noi e moir-'sy-leigh.

The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.


As dooyrt eh myrgeddin rish y pobble, Tra heeys shiu bodjal troggal ass y sheear; chelleeragh ta shiu gra, Ta frass cheet; as shen myr te.

And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.


As tra ta'n gheay-jiass sheidey, ta shiu gra, Bee chiass ayn, as te cheet gy-kione.

And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.


Chrauee-oalsey, ta shiu son baght y ghoaill jeh neeal yn aer as y thalloo: agh kys te nagh vel shiu goaill baght jeh'n earish shoh?

Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?


As cre'n-fa myrgeddin nagh vel shiu eer j'iu hene briwnys shen ny ta cairagh?

Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?


Tra t'ou goll fenish yn er-reill marishyn ta ec streeu rhyt, jean ny oddys oo er y raad dy gheddyn rea rish; er-aggle dy dayrn eh lesh oo gys y vriw, as dy livrey yn briw oo da'n tidoor, as dy dilg eh shen oo ayns pryssoon.

When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison.


Ta mee ginsh dhyt, nagh jig oo magh ass shen derrey t'ou er n'eeck yn farling s'jerree.

I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite.
