The Bible


Hie Yeesey gys cronk ny Oliveyn.

Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.


As dy moghey laa-ny-vairagh hie eh reesht gys y chiamble, as haink ooilley yn phobble huggey; as hoie eh sheese, as dynsee eh ad.

And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.


As hug ny scrudeyryn as ny Phariseeyn lhieu huggey ben va goit ayns brishey-poosey; as tra v'ad er hoiaghey ee kiongoyrt rish,

And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,


Dooyrt ad rish, Vainshter, va'n ven shoh goit ayns brishey-poosey, ayns yn eer peccah.

They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.


Nish ta Moses ayns y leigh er chur sarey dooin, e lheid dy ve er ny claghey, agh cre t'ou uss dy ghra?

Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?


Shoh dooyrt ad dy phrowal eh, dy vod dagh cooish chassid y ve oc n'oi. Agh chroym Yeesey sheese, as lesh e vair scrieu eh er y laare, myr nagh beagh eh dy nyn glashtyn.

This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.


As myr lhie ad er son ansoor, hrog eh eh-hene seose, as dooyrt eh roo, Lhig dasyn ta fegooish peccah nyn mast'eu tilgey yn chied chlagh urree.

So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.


As chroym eh sheese reesht, as scrieu eh er y laare.

And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.


As v'adsyn cheayll eh, er nyn gheyrey liorish nyn gooin-sheanse hene, as hie ad magh fer lurg fer jeu, goaill toshiaght veih yn er-shinney gys yn er-saa: as va Yeesey faagit ny-lomarcan, as y ven ny shassoo kiongoyrt rish.

And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.


Tra hrog Yeesey eh-hene seose, as nagh vaik eh unnane erbee agh y ven, dooyrt eh r'ee, Ven, cre vel ad shen dty chassidee? vel dooinney erbee er dty gheyrey?

When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?


Dooyrt ish, Cha vel dooinney erbee, Hiarn. As dooyrt Yeesey r'ee, Chamoo ta mish dy dty gheyrey: immee royd, as ny jean peccah arragh.

She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.


Eisht loayr Yeesey roo reesht, gra, Mish soilshey yn theihll: eshyn ta geiyrt orrym's, cha shooyllee eh ayns y dorraghys, agh bee echeysyn soilshey yn vea.

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.


Dooyrt ny Phariseeyn er-y-fa shen rish, T'ou gymmyrkey feanish jeed hene; cha vel dty eanish firrinagh.

The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.


Dreggyr Yeesey as dooyrt eh roo, Ga dy vel mee gymmyrkey feanish jee'm pene, foast ta'n eanish firrinagh: son ta fys aym cre-voish haink mee, as c'raad ta mee goll; agh cha s'euish cre-voish haink mee ny c'raad ta mee goll.

Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.


Ta shiuish briwnys lurg briwnys ny foalley; cha vel mish briwnys dooinney erbee.

Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.


As foast my ta mee briwnys, ta my vriwnys firrinagh: son cha vel mish my lomarcan, agh mish as yn Ayr t'er my choyrt, t'eh marym.

And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.


Eer ayns y leigh eu hene te scruit, dy vel feanish daa ghooinney firrinagh.

It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.


Ta mish gymmyrkey feanish dou hene, as ta'n Ayr t'er my choyrt gymmyrkey feanish dou.

I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.


Eisht dooyrt ad rish, Cre vel dty Ayr? Dreggyr Yeesey, Cha vel enney eu orrym's, ny er my Ayr: dy beagh enney er ve eu orryms, veagh enney er ve eu er my Ayr myrgeddin.

Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.


Ny goan shoh loayr Yeesey 'sy room tashtee, myr v'eh gynsaghey ayns y chiamble: as cha dug dooinney erbee laue er, son cha row yn oor echey foast er jeet.

These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.


Eisht dooyrt Yeesey roo reesht, Ta mee goll roym, as nee shiu my hirrey, as yiow shiu baase ayns nyn beccaghyn: raad ta mish goll, cha vod shiuish cheet.

Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.


Eisht dooyrt ny Hewnyn, Jean eh eh hene y varroo? er-yn-oyr dy vel eh gra, raad ta mish goll, cha vod shiuish cheet.

Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.


As dooyrt eh roo, Ta shiuish veih heese ta mish veih heose: ta shiuish jeh'n theihll shoh, cha vel mish jeh'n theihll shoh.

And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.


Dooyrt mee er-y-fa shen riu, dy voghe shiu baase ayns nyn beccaghyn: son mannagh vel shiu credjal dy nee mish eh, yiow shiu baase ayns nyn beccaghyn.

I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.


Eisht dooyrt ad rish, Quoi oo hene? As dooyrt Yeesey roo, Yn fer cheddin dooyrt mee riu er-dyn toshiaght.

Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.


Ta ymmodee reddyn aym's dy ghra as dy vriwnys jiuish: agh ta eshyn t'er my choyrt firrinagh as ta mee loayrt rish y theihll shen ta mee er chlashtyn veihsyn.

I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.


Cha hoig ad dy row eh loayrt roo my chione yn Ayr.

They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.


Eisht dooyrt Yeesey roo, Tra vees shiu erreish yn Mac dooinney y hroggal seose, eisht bee fys eu dy nee mish eh, as nagh vel mee jannoo nhee erbee jee'm pene; agh dy vel mee loayrt ny reddyn shen ta my Ayr er chur roym.

Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.


As ta eshyn t'er my choyrt marym: cha vel yn Ayr er my aagail my lomarcan: son ta mee dy kinjagh jannoo ny reddyn shen ta dy wooiys eh.

And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.


Choud as v'eh loayrt ny goan shoh ren ymmodee credjal ayn.

As he spake these words, many believed on him.


Eisht dooyrt Yeesey rish ny Hewnyn shen va credjal ayn, My nee shiu tannaghtyn ayns my ghoo, eisht bee shiu dy jarroo ny ynseydee ayms;

Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;


As bee toiggal eu jeh'n irriney, as nee yn irriney shiu y heyrey.

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.


Dreggyr adsyn eh, She sluight Abraham shin, as cha row shin rieau ayns bondiaght da dooinney erbee: cre'n aght t'ou gra eisht, Bee shiu er nyn yannoo seyr?

They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?


Dreggyr Yeesey ad, Dy firrinagh-focklagh ta mee gra riu, Quoi-erbee ta cur-rish peccah, t'eh ayns bondiaght peccah.

Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.


As cha vel y charvaant tannaghtyn kinjagh ayns y thie: agh ta'n Mac tannaghtyn kinjagh.

And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.


My nee yn Mac er-y-fa shen shiuish seyr, bee shiu seyr dy jarroo.

If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.


Ta fys aym dy nee sluight Abraham shiu; agh ta shiu shirrey mish y varroo, er-y-fa nagh vel my ghoo er ghoaill greme erriu.

I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.


Ta mish loayrt shen ny ta mee er n'akin ec my Ayr's: as ta shiuish jannoo shen ny ta shiu er vakin ec yn ayr euish.

I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.


Dreggyr ad as dooyrt ad rish, Abraham yn ayr ainyn. Dooyrt Yeesey roo, Dy beagh shiuish nyn gloan da Abraham, yinnagh shiu obbraghyn Abraham.

They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.


Agh nish ta shiu shirrey mish y varroo, dooinney t'er n'insh diu yn irriney, ta mee er chlashtyn veih Jee: shoh cha ren Abraham.

But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.


Ta shiuish cur-rish obbraghyn nyn ayrey hene. Eisht dooyrt ad rish, Cha ruggyr shinyn ayns maarderys; cha vel agh un Ayr ain, ta shen, Jee.

Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.


Dooyrt Yeesey roo, Dy beagh Jee yn Ayr eu, veagh shiu graihagh orrym's; son hie mee magh, as haink mee veih Jee; as cha daink mee jee'm pene, agh eshyn t'er my choyrt.

Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.


Cre'n-fa nagh vel shiu toiggal my ghlare? te son nagh vel shiu cur geill da my ghoo.

Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.


Ta shiuish jeh'n ayr eu yn drogh spyrryd, as saynt nyn ayrey ver shiu rish: v'eshyn ny ghunver er-dyn toshiaght, as cha ren eh tannaghtyn 'syn ynrickys, son nagh vel yn irriney ayn. Tra t'eh loayrt breg, t'eh loayrt jeh e chooid hene: son t'eh ny breagerey, as ayr ny breagey.

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.


As ga dy vel mee ginsh diu yn irriney, cha vel shiu dy my chredjal.

And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.


Quoi jiuish ta cur peccah my lieh? as my ta mee gra yn irriney, cre'n-fa nagh vel shiu dy my chredjal?

Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?


Eshyn ta veih Jee, t'eh cur geill da goan Yee: agh cha vel shiuish cur geill daue, son nagh vel shiu veih Jee.

He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.


Eisht dreggyr ny Hewnyn, as dooyrt ad rish, Nagh vel shin gra yn irriney, dy nee Samaritan oo, as dy vel drogh-spyrryd aynyd.

Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?


Dreggyr Yeesey, Cha vel drogh-spyrryd aynym's; agh ta mee cur ooashley da my Ayr, as ta shiuish cur mee-ooashley dooys.

Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.


As cha vel mee shirrey my ghloyr hene: ta fer ayn ta shirrey as briwnys.

And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.


Dy firrinagh-focklagh ta mee gra riu, My ta dooinney freayll my raa's, cha vaik eh yn baase dy bragh beayn.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.


Eisht dooyrt ny Hewnyn rish, Nish ta fys ain dy vel drogh-spyrryd aynyd. Ta Abraham marroo as ny phadeyryn; as t'ou uss gra, My ta dooinney freayll my raa's, cha jean eh blashtyn er y baase dy bragh beayn.

Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.


Vel uss ny s'ooasle na'n ayr ain Abraham, ta marroo? as ta ny phadeyryn marroo: quoi t'ou jannoo jeed hene?

Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?


Dreggyr Yeesey, My ta mee cur ooashley dou hene, cha vel my ooashley agh beggan feeu: she my Ayr ta cur ooashley dou, jehsyn ta shiuish loayrt, dy nee yn Jee eu eh:

Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:


Ny-yeih cha nione diuish eh; agh shione dooys eh: as dy n'yiarrin nagh nione dou eh, veign my vreagerey goll riuish: agh shione dooys eh, as ta mee freayll yn raa echey.

Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.


Ghow yn ayr eu Abraham foddiaght dy akin yn laa aym's: as honnick eh eh, as ghow eh boggey.

Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.


Eisht dooyrt ny Hewnyn rish, Cha vel uss foast jeih bleeaney as da-eed dy eash, as vel oo er vakin Abraham?

Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?


Dooyrt Yeesey roo, Dy firrinagh firrinagh ta mee gra riu, Roish my row Abraham, Ta mish.

Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.


Eisht hrog ad claghyn dy cheau er: agh cheill Yeesey eh-hene voue, as hie eh magh ass y chiamble, goll trooid y cheeid oc as myr shen hie eh shaghey.

Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.
