The Bible


Ny lurg shoh va feailley ny Hewnyn, as hie Yeesey seose gys Jerusalem.

After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.


Nish ta ec Jerusalem liorish giat ny geyrragh, loghan, ta enmyssit ayns y ghlare Hebrewnagh Bethesda, ta queig porchyn er.

Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.


Ayndoo shoh va nyn lhie ymmodee dy leih dourinagh, doail, baccee, shirgeydee, as v'ad fieau er gleashaght yn ushtey.

In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.


Son va ainle goll sheese ec lheid y traa shen ayns yn ushtey, as seiy yn ushtey: quoi erbee eisht va hoshiaght goll sheese lurg seiy yn ushtey, v'eh er ny laanaghey jeh doghan erbee dy row er.

For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.


As va ayns shen dooinney dy row, va doghan er ve er rish hoght bleeaney jeig as feed.

And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.


Tra honnick Yeesey eh ny lhie, as fys echey dy row eh er ve myr shen ry-foddey dy hraa, dooyrt eh rish, Nailt ve er dty laanaghey?

When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?


Dreggyr yn annooinagh eh, Vainshter, cha vel dooinney erbee aym, tra ta'n ushtey seiyt, dy my cur sheese ayns y loghan: agh choud as ta mee cheet, ta fer elley goll sheese roym.

The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.


Dooyrt Yeesey rish, Trog ort, gow seose dty lhiabbee as jean shooyll.

Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.


As er-y-chooyl va'n dooinney er ny lheihys, as ghow eh seose e lhiabbee, as huill eh: as er y laa shen va'n doonaght.

And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.


Dooyrt ny Hewnyn er-y-fa shen rishyn v'er ny lheihys, She laa yn doonaght t'ayn; cha vel eh lowal dhyt gymmyrkey dty lhiabbee.

The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.


Dreggyr eshyn ad, Eshyn ren m'y laanaghey, dooyrt eh shen rhym, Trog dty lhiabbee as shooill.

He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.


Eisht denee ad jeh, Quoi va yn dooinney shen dooyrt rhyt, Trog dty lhiabbee as shooill?

Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk?


As cha row fys echeysyn v'er ny lheihys, quoi v'eh: son va Yeesey er gholl dy lhiattee, liorish dy row chaglym mooar dy leih ayns y voayl shen.

And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.


Ny lurg shen hooar Yeesey eh ayns y chiamble, as dooyrt eh rish, Cur-my-ner, t'ou er dty laanaghey: ny jean peccah ny smoo, er-aggle dy jig red smessey ort.

Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.


Jimmee yn dooinney roish, as dinsh eh da ny Hewnyn dy nee Yeesey v'er laanaghey eh.

The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.


As er-yn-oyr shen ren ny Hewnyn tranlaase er Yeesey, as v'ad shirrey eh y choyrt gy-baase, er-y-fa dy row eh er n'yannoo ny red dyn shoh er laa yn doonaght.

And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.


Agh dreggyr Yeesey ad, Ta my Ayr gobbraghey derrey nish: as ta mish gobbraghey.

But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.


Shen-y-fa va ny Hewnyn wheesh shen smoo shleeuit er cur dy baase eh; er-yn-oyr dy row eh cha nee ynrycan er vrishey yn doonaght, agh er ghra myrgeddin dy nee Jee va'n Ayr echey, jannoo eh-hene corrym rish Jee.

Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.


Eisht dreggyr Yeesey, as dooyrt eh roo, Dy firrinagh firrinagh ta mee gra riu, Cha vod y Mac nhee erbee y yannoo jeh hene, agh ny t'eh fakin yn Ayr dy yannoo: son cre-erbee t'eshyn dy yannoo, ta'n Mac jannoo myrgeddin.

Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.


Son ta'n Ayr graihagh er y Mac, as t'eh soilshaghey da dy chooilley nhee t'eh hene dy yannoo: as soilshee eh da obbraghyn smoo na ad shoh, dy vod shiu yindys y ghoaill.

For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.


Son myr ta'n Ayr troggal seose, as cur bioys da ny merriu: eer myr shen ta'n Mac bioghey yn vooinjer saillish.

For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.


Son cha vel yn Ayr briwnys dooinney erbee; agh t'eh er livrey dy chooilley vriwnys gys y Mac:

For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:


Dy voddagh dy chooilley ghooinney ooashley y choyrt da'n Mac, myr t'ad cur ooashley da'n Ayr. Eshyn nagh vel cur ooashley da'n Mac, cha vel eh coyrt ooashley da'n Ayr ren y choyrt eh.

That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.


Dy firrinagh firrinagh ta mee gra riu, Eshyn ta clashtyn my ghoo's, as credjal ayn syn t'er my choyrt, ta'n vea ta dy bragh farraghtyn echey, as cha jig eh gys coayl-anmey: agh t'eh er gholl veih baase gys bea.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.


Dy firrinagh firrinagh ta mee gra riu, Ta'n oor cheet, as nish ayn, tra nee ny merriu clashtyn coraa Mac Yee: as bee adsyn chlinnys er nyn mioghey.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.


Son 'naght myr ta ec yn Ayr bioys ayn hene; myr shen t'eh er choyrt da'n Mac bioys y ve echey ayn hene;

For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;


As t'eh er choyrt da pooar dy yannoo briwnys myrgeddin, er-y-fa dy nee Mac y dooinney eh.

And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.


Ny gow-jee yindys jeh shoh: son ta'n oor cheet, tra chlinnys ooilley ny t'ayns ny oaiaghyn e choraa,

Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,


As hig ad magh; adsyn t'er n'yannoo dy mie, gys irree-seose-reesht y vea; as adsyn t'er n'yannoo dy olk, gys irree-seose reesht y choayl-anmey.

And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.


Cha voddym jee'm pene nhee erbee y yannoo: myr ta mee clashtyn, ta mee briwnys: as ta my vriwnys cairagh, er-yn-oyr nagh vel mee shirrey my aigney hene, agh aigney yn Ayr t'er my choyrt.

I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.


My ta mee gymmyrkey feanish jee'm pene, cha vel my eanish firrinagh.

If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.


Ta fer elley ta gymmyrkey feanish jee'm, as ta fys aym dy vel yn eanish t'eh dy ymmyrkey jee'm firrinagh.

There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.


Hug shiuish fys gys Ean, as dymmyrk eh feanish gys yn irriney.

Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.


Agh cha vel mish goaill fenish veih dooinney: agh shoh ta mee dy ghra, dy vod shiu v'er nyn sauail.

But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved.


V'eshyn ny hoilshey gial as sollys: as va shiu booiagh son earish boggey 'ghoaill ayns y soilshey echey.

He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.


Agh ta feanish stroshey aym's na Ean: son ny obbraghyn hug my Ayr dou dy chooilleeney, ny obbraghyn cheddin ta mee dy yannoo, t'ad gymmyrkey feanish jee'm, dy vel yn Ayr er my choyrt.

But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.


As ta'n Ayr hene t'er my choyrt, er n'ymmyrkey feanish jee'm. Cha vel shiuish er chlashtyn e choraa ec traa erbee, ny er vakin e chaslys.

And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.


As cha vel eu yn goo echeysyn tannaghtyn ayndiu: son eshyn t'eh er choyrt, aynsyn cha vel shiu credjal.

And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.


Ronsee-jee ny scriptyryn, son ayndoosyn ta shiu smooinaghtyn dy vel y vea veayn eu, as she ad shen ta gymmyrkey feanish jeem's.

Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.


As cha vel shiu booiagh cheet hym's, dy vod yn vea y ve eu.

And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.


Cha vel mish soiaghey jeh ooashley deiney.

I receive not honour from men.


Agh ta toiggal aym jiuish, nagh vel graih Yee ayndiu.

But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.


Ta mish er jeet ayns ennym my Ayrey, as cha vel shiu goaill rhym: my hig fer elley ayns e ennym hene, rishyn nee shiu goaill.

I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.


Kys oddys shiuish credjal ta geddyn ooashley yn derrey yeh veih yn jeh elley, as nagh vel shirrey yn ooashley ta veih Jee ny lomarcan?

How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?


Ny smooinee-jee dy jean-yms plaiynt erriu gys yn Ayr: ta ayn ta plaiynt nyn 'oï eu, eer Moses, ayn ta shiu treishteil.

Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.


Son dy beagh shiu er chredjal Moses, veagh shiu er chredjal aynym's; son scrieu eh jeem's.

For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me.


Agh mannagh gred shiu ny screeuyn echeysyn, kys nee shiu credjal ny goan aym's?

But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?
