The Bible


As loayr eh coraa-dorraghey roo, dy lhisagh deiney kinjagh padjer y ghoaill, as gyn ad y ve lhiastey;

And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;


Gra, Va ayns ard-valley dy row briw nagh row ayns aggle roish Jee, ny soiaghey jeh deiney.

Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man:


As va ben-treoghe ayns yn ard-valley cheddin, haink huggey, gra, Jean cairys dou er my noid.

And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.


As son tammylt cha dug eh geill jee: agh ny lurg shen dooyrt eh rish hene, Ga nagh vel mee goaill aggle roish Jee, ny jannoo soiaghey jeh dooinney:

And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;


Ny-yeih er-y-fa dy vel y ven-treoghe shoh dy my voirey, ver-ym cairys jee, er-aggle liorish cheet cha kinjagh dy jean ee skee jee'm.

Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.


As dooyrt y Chiarn, Clasht-jee cre ta'n briw neu-chairagh dy ghra.

And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.


As nagh jean Jee cooilleeney ass lieh e chloan reiht hene, ta geamagh huggey oie as laa, ga dy vel eh foddey lhiggey shaghey?

And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?


Ta mee ginsh diu dy jean eh dy tappee goaill cooilleeney er nyn son. Ny-yeih tra hig Mac y dooinney, vow eh credjue er y thalloo?

I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?


As loayr eh yn coraa-dorraghey shoh rish shiartanse va treishteil ayndoo hene dy row ad cairagh, agh soiaghey beg jeh feallagh elley:

And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:


Hie daa ghooinney seose gys y chiamble dy ghoaill padjer; va'n derrey yeh ny Pharisee, as y jeh elley ny phublican.

Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.


Hass y Pharisee as ghow eh padjer myr shoh rish hene, Yee, ta mee cur booise dhyt, nagh vel mish myr deiney elley, tranlaasee, neu-chairagh, brishey-poosey, ny foast myr y publican shoh.

The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.


Ta mee trostey daa cheayrt 'sy chiaghtin, ta mee cur jaghee jeh ooilley ny t'ayns my chummal.

I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.


As hass y publican foddey veih, as cha b'lhoys da wheesh as e hooillyn y hroggal seose gys niau, agh woaill eh er e chleeau, gra, Dy row Jee myghinagh dooys ta my ghooinney peccoil.

And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.


Ta mee ginsh diu, dy jagh y dooinney shoh sheese gys e hie er ny heyrey roish y jeh elley: son bee dy chooilley er ta dy hoiaghey eh-hene seose er ny injillaghey as bee eshyn ta dy injillaghey eh-hene, er ny hoiaghey seose.

I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.


As hug ad lhieu huggey myrgeddin cloan aegey, dy ventyn roo: agh tra honnick e ostyllyn shoh, hooar ad foill.

And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them.


Agh deie Yeesey orroo huggey, as dooyrt eh, Lhig-jee da ny paitchyn cheet hym's, as ny jean-jee ad y lhiettal: son jeh nyn lheid ta reeriaght Yee.

But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.


Dy firrinagh ta mee gra riu, Quoi-erbee nagh jean goaill-rish reeriaght Yee myr lhiannoo beg, cha jed eh er aght erbee stiagh ayn.

Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.


As denee fer-reill dy row jeh, gra, Vainshter vie, cre t'orrym dy yannoo dy vod eiraght y ve aym ayns y vea veayn?

And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?


As dooyrt Yeesey rish, Cre'n-fa t'ou genmys mish mie? cha vel ayn ny ta mie, agh unnane, ynrycan Jee.

And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.


Shione dhyt ny annaghyn, Ny jean poosey y vrishey, Ny jean dunverys, Ny jean geid, Ny jean feanish foalsey y ymmyrkey, Cur arrym da dty ayr as da dty voir.

Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother.


As dooyrt eh, Ooilley shoh ta mee er vreayll veih my aegid.

And he said, All these have I kept from my youth up.


Nish tra cheayll Yeesey shoh, dooyrt eh rish, Ta foast ort un red y yannoo: creck as rheynn ooilley ny t'ayd er ny boghtyn, as bee berchys ayd ayns niau: as tar, as eiyr orrym's.

Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.


As tra cheayll eh shoh, daase eh feer trimshagh, son v'eh feer verchagh.

And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich.


As tra honnick Yeesey dy row eh feer trimshagh, dooyrt eh, Cre cha doillee as te dauesyn ta berchys oc, goll stiagh ayns reeriaght Yee!

And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, he said, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God


Son te ny sassey da camel goll trooid croae snaidey, na da dooinney berchagh dy gholl stiagh ayns reeriaght Yee.

For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.


As dooyrt adsyn cheayll eh, Quoi eisht oddys v'er ny hauail?

And they that heard it said, Who then can be saved?


As dooyrt eh, Ta ny reddyn shoh neu phossible da deiney, agh t'ad possible da Jee.

And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.


Eisht dooyrt Peddyr, Cur-my-ner, ta shinyn er dreigeil ooilley, as er n'eiyrt ort's.

Then Peter said, Lo, we have left all, and followed thee.


As dooyrt eh roo, Dy firrinagh ta mee gra riu, Nagh vel dooinney erbee t'er dreigeil thie, ny ayr ny moir, ny braaraghyn, ny ben, ny cloan, er graih reeriaght Yee,

And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God's sake,


Nagh vow ymmodee fillee smoo 'sy traa t'ayn nish, as ayns y theihll ta ry-heet yn vea dy bragh farraghtyn.

Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting.


Eisht ghow eh huggey yn daa ostyl yeig, as dooyrt eh roo, Cur-my-ner ta shin goll seose gys Jerusalem, as bee dy chooilley nhee ta scruit liorish ny phadeyryn, my chione yn Mac dooinney, er ny chooilleeney.

Then he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished.


Son bee eh er ny vrah gys ny Ashoonee, as nee ad craidey mysh, as dellal dy roonagh rish, as ceau shellaghyn er;

For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles, and shall be mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spitted on:


As scuitchee ad eh, as ver ad eh gy baase; as y trass laa nee eh girree reesht.

And they shall scourge him, and put him to death: and the third day he shall rise again.


As cha hoig ad veg jeh ny reddyn va fys oc er ny reddyn va loayrit.

And they understood none of these things: and this saying was hid from them, neither knew they the things which were spoken.


As haink eh gy-kione, tra v'eh er jeet er gerrey da Jericho, dy row dooinney doal dy row ny hoie rish lhiattee yn raad, shirrey jeirk.

And it came to pass, that as he was come nigh unto Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the way side begging:


As tra cheayll eh yn pobble goll shaghey, denee eh cre v'ayn.

And hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant.


As dinsh ad da, dy row Yeesey dy Nazareth goll shaghey.

And they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by.


As dyllee eh, gra, Yeesey, vac Ghavid, jean myghin orrym.

And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.


As hug y vooinjer hie roish oghsan da dy ve ny-host: agh dyllee eshyn wheesh shen smoo, Vac Ghavid, jean myghin orrym.

And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried so much the more, Thou son of David, have mercy on me.


As hass Yeesey, as doardee eh yn dooinney dy ve er ny choyrt lesh huggey: as tra v'eh er jeet er-gerrey, denee eh jeh,

And Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought unto him: and when he was come near, he asked him,


Gra, Cre bailt mee dy yannoo er dy hon? As dooyrt eh, Hiarn, dy voddym my hoilshey y gheddyn.

Saying, What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee? And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight.


As dooyrt Yeesey rish, Dty hoilshey dy row ayd: ta dty chredjue er dty hauail.

And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee.


As chelleeragh hooar eh e hoilshey, as deiyr eh er, cur gloyr da Jee: ooilley yn pobble, tra honnick ad eh, hug ad moylley da Jee.

And immediately he received his sight, and followed him, glorifying God: and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God.
