The Bible


As dooyrt eh myrgeddin rish e ostyllyn, Va dooinney berchagh dy row as stiurt echey, va er ny chassid huggey son jummal e chooid.

And he said also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich man, which had a steward; and the same was accused unto him that he had wasted his goods.


As deie eh er, as dooyrt eh rish, Kys dy vel mee clashtyn shoh jeed? cur coontey jeh dty stiurtys: son cha vod oo ve ny sodjey dty stiurt,

And he called him, and said unto him, How is it that I hear this of thee? give an account of thy stewardship; for thou mayest be no longer steward.


Eisht dooyrt y stiurt rish hene, Cre nee'm? son ta my hiarn goaill y stiurtys voym: cha voddym reurey, as dy huill ny dhieyn ta nearey orrym.

Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? for my lord taketh away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed.


Shoh ta mee kiarail dy yannoo tra chaill-ym y stiurtys, dy vod paart jeu goaill mee stiagh ayns ny thieyn oc.

I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.


Er shoh deie eh orroosyn ooilley v'ayns lhiastynys da e hiarn, as dooyrt eh rish y chied er, Cre-woad t'ou uss dy lhiastyn dy my hiarn?

So he called every one of his lord's debtors unto him, and said unto the first, How much owest thou unto my lord?


As dooyrt eh, Keead towse dy ooil. As dooyrt eh rish, Gow dty lioar, as soie sheese dy tappee, as scrieu jeih as da-eed.

And he said, An hundred measures of oil. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty.


As dooyrt eh rish fer elley, As cre-woad t'ou uss dy lhiastyn? As dooyrt eh, Keead owse dy churnaght. As dooyrt eh rish, Gow dty lioar as scrieu kiare-feed.

Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he said, An hundred measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and write fourscore.


As voyll y chiarn y stiurt neu-chairagh, er-y-fa dy row eh er n'yannoo dy creeney: son ta cloan y theihll shoh ayns nyn sheeloghe ny s'creeney na cloan y toilshey.

And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.


As ta mee gra riu, Jean-jee diu hene caarjyn liorish y mammon molteyragh; tra nee shiu failleil dy vod ad shiu y ghoaill stiagh gys ny ynnydyn vaghee dy bragh farraghtyn.

And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.


Eshyn ta ynrick ayns yn nhee s'fardalee, t'eh ynrick myrgeddin ayns mooarane: as eshyn ta neu-charragh ayns y nhee s'fardalee, t'eh neu-chairagh myrgeddin ayns mooarane.

He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.


Mannagh vel shiu er-y-fa shen er ve ynrick ayns y mammon molteyragh, quoi ver yn verchys firrinagh fo nyn gurrym?

If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?


As mannagh vel shiu er ve firrinagh ayns ny ta lesh dooinney elley, quoi ver diu ny vees lhieu hene?

And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's, who shall give you that which is your own?


Cha vod sharvaant erbee daa vainshter y hirveish: son eddyr ver eh feoh da'n derrey yeh as graih da'n jeh elley; er nonney cummee eh gys y derrey yeh, as soie-ee eh beg jeh'n jeh elley. Cha vod shiu Jee as mammon y hirveish.

No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.


As cheayll ny Phariseeyn myrgeddin va sayntoilagh, ooilley ny reddyn shoh: as ren ad gannidys er.

And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him.


As dooyrt eh roo, Shiuish yn vooinjer ta dy heyrey shiu hene kiongoyrt rish deiney: agh ta fys ec Jee er ny creeaghyn eu: son ta shen ta dy mooar soit jeh mastey deiney, feohdoil ayns shilley Yee.

And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.


Va'n leigh as ny phadeyryn derrey Ean: er-dyn traa shen, ta reeriaght Yee er ny phreacheil, as ta dy chooilley ghooinney chionney stiagh huggey.

The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.


Agh te ny sassey da'n aer as da'n thalloo dy herraghtyn, na da un floag jeh'n leigh dy ailleil.

And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.


Quoi-erbee scarrys rish e ven, as phoosys ben elley, t'eh brishey poosey: as quoi-erbee phoosys ish ta scarrit veih e sheshey, t'eh brishey poosey.

Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery.


Va dooinney berchagh dy row va coamrit ayns gorrym-jiarg, as sheeidey, as farrail dy soaillagh dy chooilley laa.

There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:


As va boght dy row va enmyssit Lazarus, va ny lhie ec y ghiat echey lane dy hingyn,

And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,


As geearree dy ve jeant magh lesh y vrooillagh va tuittym jeh boayrd y dooinney berchagh: agh haink ny eer moddee as sliee ad ny chingyn echey.

And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.


As haink eh gy-kione, dy dooar y dooinney boght baase, as dy dug dy ainleyn lhieu eh gys oghrish Abraham: hooar y dooinney berchagh myrgeddin baase, as v'eh er ny oanluckey.

And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;


As ayns niurin, raad v'eh er ny horchaghey, hrog eh seose e hooillyn, as honnick eh Abraham foddey veih, as Lazarus ayns e oghrish.

And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.


As deïe eh as dooyrt eh, Ayr Abraham, jean myghin orrym, as cur Lazarus, dy vod eh baare e vair y hummey ayns ushtey, as my hengey y eayraghey; son ta mee er my horchaghey ayns y lossey shoh.

And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.


Agh dooyrt Abraham, Vac, cooinee uss ayns earish dty vea dy row ayd's dy chooilley nhee mie, as myrgeddin ec Lazarus cha row monney agh seaghyn: agh nish t'eshyn er ny gherjaghey, as t'ou uss er dty horchaghey,

But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.


As marish shoh ooilley, ta eddyr shinyn as shiuish diunid vooar soit: myr shen adsyn ta aignagh dy gholl yeih shoh hiuish, cha vod ad; chamoo oddys adsyn cheet hooinyn bailliu cheet veih shen.

And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.


Eisht dooyrt eh, Ta mee guee ort er-y-fa shen, ayr, dy choyrt eh gys thie my ayrey:

Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:


Son ta queig braaraghyn aym; dy vod eh feanish y ymmyrkey daue, nagh jig adsyn myrgeddin gys y boayl shoh dy horchagh.
