The Bible


Nish, roish feailley ny Caisht, as fys ec Yeesey, dy row yn oor echey er jeet, tra v'eh dy gholl ass y theihll shoh gys yn Ayr, myr v'eh graihagh er e vooinjer hene, va ayns y theihll, hug eh graih daue gys y jerrey.

Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.


As myr v'ad gee nyn shibber (va'n drogh-spyrryd nish er choyrt eh ayns cree Yuaase Iscariot mac Simon, dy vrah eh)

And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him;


Va fys ec Yeesey dy row yn Ayr er chur dy chooilley nhee ayns ny laueyn echey, as dy nee veih Jee haink eh, as dy nee gys Jee v'eh goll,

Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;


Dirree eh veih shibber, as hug eh jeh e gharmadyn, as ghow eh aanrit, as chryss eh eh mysh hene.

He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.


Eisht hug eh ushtey ayns saagh, as ren eh toshiaght dy niee cassyn e ostyllyn, as dy rubbey ad lesh yn aanrit va ec e chryss.

After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.


Eisht haink eh gys Simon Peddyr: as dooyrt eshyn rish, Hiarn, vel uss son niee my chassyn's?

Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?


Dreggyr Yeesey as dooyrt eh rish, Cre ta mee dy yannoo cha vel oo toiggal nish; agh bee toiggal ayd jeh ny-yeï shoh.

Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.


Dooyrt Peddyr rish, My chassyn's cha niee oo dy bragh. Dreggyr Yeesey eh, mannagh nieeyms oo, cha vod ayrn erbee ve ayd mârym.

Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.


Dooyrt Simon Peddyr rish, Hiarn, cha nee ynrycan eisht my chassyn, agh myrgeddin my laueyn, as my chione.

Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.


Dooyrt Yeesey rish, Eshyn ta nieet, cha vel feme echey agh dy niee e chassyn, as t'eh glen ooilley harrish: as ta shiuish glen, agh cha vel shiu ooilley myr shen.

Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.


Son va fys echey quoi va ry-hoi y vrah eh: shen-y-fa dooyrt eh, Cha vel shiu ooilley glen.

For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.


Myr shen erreish da v' er niee ny cassyn oc, as tra v'eh er ghoaill e gharmadyn, as er hoie sheese reesht, dooyrt eh roo, Vel fys eu cre ta mee er n'yannoo riu?

So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?


Ta shiu genmys mish nyn Mainshter, as Chiarn: as ta shiu gra dy mie; son she shen mee.

Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.


My ta mish eisht yn Chiarn as y Mainshter eu er niee nyn gassyn, lhisagh shiuish myrgeddin yn derrey yeh eu cassyn y jeh elley y niee.

If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet.


Son ta mish er chur diu sampleyr; shiuish dy yannoo myr ta mish er n'yannoo riu.

For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.


Dy firrinagh firrinagh ta mee gra riu, Cha vel y charvaant ny syrjey na e hiarn, ny eshyn t'er ny choyrt, ny syrjey na eshyn ren y choyrt eh.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.


My ta fys eu er ny reddyn shoh, s'maynrey vees shiu my nee shiu ad y yannoo.

If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.


Cha vel mee loayrt j'iu ooilley; ta fys aym quoi ta mee er reih: agh dy vod y scriptyr ve cooilleenit, T'eshyn ta gee arran mârym, er hroggal e voyn m'oï.

I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me.


Nish ta mee ginsh diu ro-laue, tra hig eh gy-kione, dy vod shiu credjal dy nee mish eh.

Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he.


Dy firrinagh firrinagh ta mee gra riu Eshyn ta jannoo soiagh jeh quoi-erbee ta mee dy choyrt, t'eh jannoo soiagh jeem's: as eshyn ta soiaghey jeem's, t'eh soiaghey jehsyn t'er my choyrt.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.


Tra va Yeesey er ghra shoh, v'eh seaghnit ayns e spyrryd, as dymmyrk eh feanish, as dooyrt eh, Dy firrinagh firrinagh ta mee gra riu, dy jean fer jiuish mish y vrah.

When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.


Eisht yeeagh ny ostyllyn er y cheilley ayns ourys quoi er v'eh cheet.

Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake.


Nish va ny lhie er oghrish Yeesey, fer jeh e ostyllyn bynney lesh.

Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved.


Chrie Simon Peddyr er-y-fa shen er, eh dy enaght quoi er v'eh cheet.

Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spake.


Myr v'eh eisht ny lhie rish oghrish Yeesey, dooyrt eh rish, Hiarn, quoi eh?

He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it?


Dreggyr Yeesey, She eshyn eh da verym greme dy arran, tra vee'm er hummey eh. As tra v'eh er hummey yn greme, hug eh eh da Yuaase Iscariot mac Simon.

Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.


As lurg y greme, hie yn drogh-spyrryd stiagh ayn. Eisht dooyrt Yeesey rish, Shen t'ou dy yannoo, jean eh dy tappee.

And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.


Nish cha row fys ec dooinney jeu ec y voayrd cre'n-fa loayr eh shoh rish.

Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him.


Son heill paart, er-yn-oyr dy nee ec Yuaase va'n sporran, dy row Yeesey er ghra rish, Kionnee ny vees mayd feme cour y feailley: ny eh dy chur jeirk da ny boghtyn.

For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.


Erreish da eisht v'er n'ghoaill y greme dy arran, hie eh chelleeragh magh: as va'n oie ayn.

He then having received the sop went immediately out: and it was night.


Shen-y-fa erreish da v'er n'gholl magh, dooyrt Yeesey, Nish ta'n Mac dooinney er ny ghloyraghey, as ta Jee er ny ghloyraghey ayn.

Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him.


My ta Jee er ny ghloyraghey ayn, nee Jee myrgeddin eshyn y ghloyraghey ayn hene, as nee eh dy gerrit eh y ghloyraghey.

If God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in himself, and shall straightway glorify him.


Chloan veggey, foast tammylt beg ta mish meriu. Nee shiu my hirrey: as myr dooyrt mee rish ny Hewnyn, Raad ta mish goll, cha vod shiuish cheet; myr shen ta mec nish gra riuish.

Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you.


Sarey noa ta mee dy choyrt diu, Shiu dy ve graihagh yn derrey yeh er y jeh elley; myr ta mish er ve graihagh erriuish dy der shiuish myrgeddin graih yn derrey yeh da'n jeh elley.

A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.


Liorish shoh vees fys ec dy chooilley ghooinney dy vel shiu gynsaghey voym's, my vees shiu graihagh yn derrey yeh er y jeh elley.

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.


Dooyrt Simon Peddyr rish, Hiarn, c'raad t'ou goll? Dreggyr Yeesey eh, Raad ta mee goll, cha vod oo geiyrt orrym nish; agh eiyree oo orrym ny lurg shoh.

Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.


Dooyrt Peddyr rish, Hiarn, cre'n-fa nagh voddym geiyrt ort nish? scarrym rish my vioys er dty ghraih.

Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake.


Dreggyr Yeesey eh, Jean oo scarrey rish dty vioys er my ghraih's? Dy firrinagh firrinagh ta mee gra rhyt, Nagh jean y kellagh gerrym, derrey obbys oo mish three keayrtyn.

Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, till thou hast denied me thrice.
