The Bible


Va dooinney jeh ny Phariseeyn enmyssit Nicodemus, Dy ard-ghooinney mastey ny Hewnyn:

There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:


Haink eh shoh gys Yeesey ayns yn oie, as dooyrt eh rish, Rabbi, ta fys ain dy nee fer-ynsee as t'er jeet veih Jee: son cha vod dooinney erbee ny mirrilyn shen y yannoo t'ou uss dy yannoo, mannagh bee Jee mârish.

The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.


Dreggyr Yeesey as dooyrt eh rish, Dy firrinagh firrinagh ta mee gra rhyt, Mannagh bee dooinney er ny ruggey reesht, cha vod eh reeriaght Yee y akin.

Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.


Dooyrt Nicodemus rish, Kys oddys dooinney v'er ny ruggey tra t'eh shenn? vod eh goll stiagh yn nah cheayrt ayns breïn, e vayrey, as cheet er y theihll?

Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?


Dreggyr Yeesey, Dy firrinagh firrinagh ta mee gra rhyt, Mannagh bee dooinney er ny ruggey jeh ushtey as jeh'n spyrryd, cha vod eh goll stiagh ayns reeriaght Yee.

Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.


Shen t'er ny ruggey jeh'n eill, te foalley; as shen t'er ny ruggey jeh'n Spyrryd, te spyrrydoil.

That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.


Ny gow yindys dy dooyrt mee rhyt, Shegin diu v'er nyn ruggey reesht.

Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.


Ta'n gheay sheidey raad saillee, as t'ou clashtyn y sheean eck, agh cha s'ayd cre voish t'ee cheet, ny cre'n raad t'ee goll: myr shen ta dy chooilley unnane t'er ny ruggey jeh'n Spyrryd.

The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.


Dreggyr Nicodemus as dooyrt eh rish, Kys oddys ny reddyn shoh y ve?

Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?


Dreggyr Yeesey as dooyrt eh rish, Vel uss dty er-ynsee ayns Israel, as nagh vel toiggal ayd jeh ny reddyn shoh?

Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?


Dy firrinagh firrinagh ta mee gra rhyt, ta shin loayrt shen ta fys ain er, as gymmyrkey feanish jeh ny ta shin er vakin; as cha vel shiu soiaghey jeh'n eanish ain.

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.


My ta mish er loayrt riu jeh reddyn seihltagh, as nagh vel shiu dy my chredjal, kys nee shiu my chredjal my loayr-ym riu jeh reddyn flaunyssagh?

If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?


As cha vel dooinney erbee er gholl seose gys niau, agh eshyn haink neose veih niau, eer yn Mac dooinney ta ayns niau.

And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.


As myr ren Moses yn ard-nieu y hroggal seose ayns yn aasagh, myr shen shegin da Mac y dooinney v'er ny hroggal seose:

And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:


Nagh jean quoi-erbee ta credjal ayn cherraghtyn, agh dy bee yn vea ta dy bragh farraghtyn echey.

That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.


Son lheid y ghraih shen hug Jee da'n theihll, dy dug eh e ynrycan Vac v'er ny gheddyn, nagh jinnagh quoi-erbee chred jagh aynsyn cherraghtyn, agh yn vea ta dy bragh farraghtyn y chosney.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.


Son cha dug Jee e vac gys y theihll, dy gheyrey yn seihll; agh dy voddagh y seihll liorishyn v'er ny hauail.

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.


Eshyn ta credjal ayn, cha vel eh er ny gheyrey: agh eshyn nagh vel credjal ayn, t'eh er ny gheyrey hannah, er-yn-oyr nagh vel eh er chredjal ayns ennym yn ynrycan Mac v'er ny gheddyn dy Yee.

He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.


As shoh yn vriwnys, dy vel soilshey er jeet gys y theihll, as dy row deiney ny s'graihee er y dorraghys na er y toilshey, er-y-fa dy row nyn obbraghyn olk.

And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.


Son ta dy chooilley unnane ta jannoo dy holk, cur feoh da'n toilshey, chamoo t'eh cheet gys y toilshey, son nagh jig brah er ny obbraghyn echey.

For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.


Agh eshyn ta jannoo firrinys, t'eh cheet gys y toilshey, dy vod e obbraghyn v'er nyn soilshaghey magh, dy vel ad er nyn obbraghey ayns Jee.

But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.


Ny lurg shoh haink Yeesey as e ynseydee gys cheer Yudea, as duirree eh ayns shen maroo, as ren eh bashtey.

After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and baptized.


As va Ean myrgeddin bashtey ayns Enon, er-gerrey da Salem, er-y-fa dy row palchey dy ushtey ayns shen: as haink ad as v'ad er nyn mashtey.

And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized.


Son cha row Ean foast tilgit ayns pryssoon.

For John was not yet cast into prison.


Eisht dirree question eddyr paart jeh ynseydee Ean as ny Hewnyn, mychione bashtey.

Then there arose a question between some of John's disciples and the Jews about purifying.


As haink ad gys Ean, as dooyrt ad rish Rabbi, eshyn va mayrt er cheu elley dy Yordan, da ren oo feanish y ymmyrkey, cur-my-ner, t'eshyn bashtey, as ta dy chooilley ghooinney cheet huggey.

And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him.


Dreggyr Ean as dooyrt eh, Cha vod dooinney nhee erbee y ghoaill er hene, mannagh bee eh er ny choyrt da veih niau.

John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.


Ren shiuish shiu hene feanish y ymmyrkey lhiam, dy dooyrt mee, Cha nee mish yn Creest, agh dy vel mee er my choyrt roish.

Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.


Eshyn dooinney yn phoosee ta ben y phoosee echey: agh ta carrey dooinney yn phoosee ta ny hassoo as geaishtagh rish, goaill boggey mooar jeh coraa yn dooinney poosee: ta shoh my voggey's er-y-fa shen jeant magh.

He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.


Shegin dasyn bishaghey, agh shegin dooys parail.

He must increase, but I must decrease.


Eshyn ta cheet veih'n yrjid, t'eh er skyn ooilley: eshyn ta jeh yn thalloo, t'eh thallooinagh, as loayrt jeh'n thalloo: eshyn ta cheet veih niau, t'eh erskyn ooilley.

He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.


As y red t'eh er vakin as er chlashtyn, shen t'eh gymmyrkey feanish jeh; as cha vel dooinney erbee soiaghey jeh'n eanish echey.

And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony.


Eshyn t'er n'yannoo soiaghey jeh'n eanish echey, t'eh er chur y seal echey huggey, dy vel Jee firrinagh.

He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.


Son t'eshyn ta Jee er choyrt, loayrt goan Yee: son cha nee liorish towse ta Jee cur y Spyrryd da.

For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.


Ta'n Ayr graihagh er y Mac, as t'eh er chur dy chooilley nhee fo yn laue echey.

The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.


Eshyn ta credjal ayns y Mac, ta'n vea ta dy bragh farraghtyn echey: as eshyn nagh vel credjal yn Mac, cha vaik eh yn vea, agh nee jymmoose Yee tannaghtyn er.

He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
