The Bible


As hie Yeesey stiagh, as jimmee eh trooid Jericho.

And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho.


As cur-my-ner, va dooinney va enmyssit Zaccheus, va ny ard-ghooinney mastey ny publicanee, as v'eh berchagh.

And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich.


As v'eh shirrey Yeesey y akin quoi v'eh, as cha dod eh kyndagh rish y pobble, son v'eh ny ghooinney giare.

And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature.


As roie eh roish, as hie eh seose er billey-sycamore dy gheddyn shilley jeh; son v'eh dy gholl shaghey yn raad shen.

And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way.


As tra va Yeesey er jeet gys yn ynnyd, yeeagh eh seose, as honnick eh eh, as dooyrt eh rish, Zaccheus, jean siyr, as tar neose; son jiu ta mish dy ghoaill aght ec dty hie.

And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house.


As ren eh siyr, as haink eh neose, as hug eh oltaghey-bea gennal da.

And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully.


As tra honnick ad shoh, v'ad ooilley jymmoosagh, gra, Dy row eh er gholl stiagh dy ee as dy iu marish dooinney dy ghrogh vea.

And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner.


As hass Zaccheus magh, as dooyrt eh rish y Chiarn, Cur-my-ner, Hiarn, yn derrey lieh jeh my chooid ta mee dy choyrt da ny boghtyn: as my ta mee er ghoaill red erbee dy molteyragh veih dooinney erbee, ta mee jannoo lhiassaghey kiare-filley da.

And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord: Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.


As dooyrt Yeesey rish, Jiu ta saualtys er jeet gys y thie shoh, ayns wheesh as dy vel eshyn myrgeddin ny vac da Abraham.

And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.


Son ta Mac y dooinney er jeet dy hirrey as dy hauail shen ny va caillit.

For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.


As erreish daue shoh y chlashtyn, hie eh ny sodjey er e hoshiaght, as loayr eh coraa-dorraghey er-y-fa dy row eh er-gerrey da Jerusalem, as liorish dy row ad smooinaghtyn dy beagh reeriaght Yee dy gerrit er ny hoilshaghey:

And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear.


Dooyrt eh er-y-fa shen, Hie dooinney ooasle dy row gys cheer foddey, dy gheddyn da hene reeriaght, as dy heet back reesht.

He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.


As deie eh er ny jeih sharvaantyn echey, as livrey eh daue jeih puint, as dooyrt eh roo, Jean-jee dellal derrey hig-ym.

And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.


Agh dirree yn theay shen magh n'oï as hug ad chaghteraght geiyrt er, gra, Cha naill-lhieu yn dooinney shoh dy reill harrin.

But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us.


As haink eh gy-kione, tra v'eh er jeet reesht, erreish da yn reeriaght y gheddyn, dy doardee eh ny sharvaantyn shen dy ve eit huggey, daue v'eh er choyrt yn argid, dy gheddyn fys cre-woad va dy chooilley ghooinney er chosney liorish e ghellal.

And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading.


Eisht haink y chied er, gra, Hiarn, ta dty phunt er chosney jeih puint.

Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds.


As dooyrt eh rish, S'mie shen, harvaant vie: er-yn-oyr dy vel oo er ve firrinagh ayns red feer fardalagh, gow uss yn reill er jeih ard-valjyn.

And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.


As haink yn nah er, gra, Hiarn, ta dty phunt er chosney queig puint.

And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds.


As dooyrt eh myrgeddin rishyn, Gow uss yn reill neesht er queig ard-valjyn.

And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.


As haink fer elley, gra, Hiarn, cur-my-ner, shoh dty phunt, t'er ny ve aym's tashtit ayns naptin:

And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin:


Son va mee ayns aggle royd, er-y-fa dy nee dooinney creoi oo: t'ou troggal shen nagh dug oo sheese, as buinn shen nagh ren oo cuirr.

For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow.


As dooyrt eh rish, Ass dty veeal hene nee'm oo y vriwnys, uss ghrogh harvaant, Va fys ayd dy row mee my ghooinney creoi, troggal shen nagh dug mee sheese, as buinn shen nagh chuirr mee:

And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow:


Cre'n-fa nagh dug oo my argid magh er use, tra harrin thie, dy voddin v'er droggal my chooid hene lesh bishaghey.

Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury?


As dooyrt eh roosyn va kionfenish, Gow-jee yn punt voishyn as cur-jee eh da fer ny jeih puint.,

And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds.


(As dooyrt ad rish, Hiarn, ta jeih puint echey shen.)

(And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)


Son ta mee gra riu, Da dy chooilley unnane ta echey, vees er ny choyrt, as eshyn nagh vel echey, bee shen hene ny ta echey er ny ghoaill veih.

For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him.


Agh ad shen my noidyn nagh bailliu mish dy reill harrystoo, cur-jee lhieu ad ayns shoh, as cur-jee ad gy-baase kiongoyrt rhym.

But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.


As tra v'eh er ghra shoh, hie eh rhymboo, myr v'ad goll seose gys Jerusalem,

And when he had thus spoken, he went before, ascending up to Jerusalem.


As haink eh gy-kione, tra v'ad er jeet er-gerrey da Bethphage as Bethany, ec y chronk va enmyssit cronk ny oliveyn, dy dug eh jees jeh e ostyllyn er chaghteraght,

And it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount called the mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples,


Gra, Gow-jee gys y balley-beg ta rhymbiu; as tra hig shiu gys shen, yiow shiu lhiy er-eistyr, er nagh ren rieau dooinney markiagh: feayshil-jee as cur-jee lhieu eh gys shoh.

Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat: loose him, and bring him hither.


As my ênys dooinney erbee j'iu, Cre'n fa ta shiu dy eaysley eh? Shoh myr nee shiu gra rish, Er-y-fa dy ve feme ec y Chiarn er.

And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him.


As hie ny chaghteryn rhymboo, as hooar ad eh myr v'eh er ghra roo.

And they that were sent went their way, and found even as he had said unto them.


As myr v'ad feaysley yn lhiy, dooyrt y vooinjer by-liesh eh roo, Cre'n-fa ta shiu feaysley yn lhiy?

And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said unto them, Why loose ye the colt?


As dooyrt adsyn, Ta feme ec y Chiarn er.

And they said, The Lord hath need of him.


As hug ad lhieu eh gys Yeesey: as hilg ad nyn gharmadyn er y lhiy, as hug ad Yeesey ny hoie orroo.

And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon.


As myr v'eh goll, skeayll ad nyn eaddagh er y raad.

And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way.


As tra v'eh er jeet er-gerrey, eer ec goll-sheese cronk ny oliveyn, ghow yn slane sheshaght jeh e eiyrtyssee toshiaght dy ghoaill boggey, as dy chur moylley da Jee lesh ard-choraa, son ooilley ny obbraghyn mirrillagh v'ad er n'akin,

And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen;


Gra, Bannit dy row yn Ree ta cheet ayns ennym y Chiarn: shee ayns niau, as gloyr ayns yn yrjid.

Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.


As dooyrt paart jeh ny Phariseeyn rish veih mastey yn pobble, Vainshter, cur oghsan da dty eiyrtyssee.

And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.


As dreggyr eshyn, as dooyrt eh roo, Ta mee ginsh diu, my chummagh ad shoh nyn jengey, dy jinnagh ny eer claghyn troggal seose nyn goraa.

And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.


As tra v'eh er jeet er-gerrey, yeeagh eh er yn ard-valley, as cheayn eh harrish.

And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,


Gra, Dy beagh toiggal er ve ayd's, dy jarroo ayd's, ayns dty laa shoh hene, jeh ny reddyn ta bentyn rish dty hee! agh nish t'ad follit veih dty hooillyn.

Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.


Son hig ny laghyn ort, tra nee dty noidyn jeeg y yannoo mood, as soie-ee ad ad-hene mygeayrt, as cruinnee ad oo stiagh er dy chooilley heu.

For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side,


As lhieggee ad oo kiart rish y thalloo, as dty chloan cheu-sthie jeed; as cha vaag ad aynyd un chlagh er clagh elley: er-yn-oyr nagh dug oo tastey da'n earish haink mish dy dty yeeaghyn.

And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.


As hie eh stiagh ayns y chiamble, as ren eh toshiaght dy eiyrt magh yn vooinjer va creck as kionnaghey ayn,

And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought;


Gra roo, Te scruit, Ta my hie's thie yn phadjer: agh ta shiuish er n'yannoo eh ny ooig dy vaarlee.

Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.


As v'eh gynsagh ad gagh laa ayns y chiamble. Agh va ny ard-saggyrtyn, as ny scrudeyryn, as leeideilee yn phobble shirrey eh y stroie,

And he taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests and the scribes and the chief of the people sought to destroy him,


As cha row fys oc kys dy heet my geayrt-y-mysh; son va ooilley yn pobble feer aggindagh er clashtyn eh.

And could not find what they might do: for all the people were very attentive to hear him.
