The Bible


Tra va Yeesey er loayrt ny goan shoh, hie eh magh marish e ostyllyn harrish y strooan Cedron, raad va garey, as hie eshyn as e ostyllyn stiagh ayn.

When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples.


As bione da Yuaase neesht va dy vrah eh, yn ynnyd: son boallagh Yeesey dy mennick taaghey yn voayl shen marish e ostyllyn.

And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples.


Hooar Yuaase eisht sheshaght dy gheiney, as sidooryn veih ny ard-saggyrtyn as ny Phariseeyn, as haink eh ayns shen lesh lonteyryn, as torchyn, as armyn.

Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.


Va fys ec Yeesey er-y-fa shen er dy chooilley nhee harragh er, as hie eh magh, as dooyrt eh roo, Quoi ta shiu dy hirrey?

Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?


Dreggyr ad eh, Yeesey dy Nazareth. Dooyrt Yeesey roo, Mish eh. As va Yuaase myrgeddin ren y vrah eh ny hassoo mâroo.

They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.


Cha leah eisht as v'eh er ghra roo, Mish eh, hie ad gour nyn drommey, as huitt ad gys y thalloo.

As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.


Eisht dênee eh jeu reesht, Quoi ta shiu dy hirrey? As dooyrt adsyn, Yeesey dy Nazareth.

Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.


Dreggyr Yeesey, Ta mee er n'insh diu dy nee mish eh. My ta shiu er-y-fa shen dy my hirrey, lhig-jee daue shoh goll roue:

Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way:


Shoh myr va'n raa shen loayr eh cooilleenit, Jeusyn hug oo dou, cha vel mee er choayll unnane.

That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none.


Eisht va cliwe ec Simon Peddyr, as hayrn eh eh, as woaill eh fer-mooinjerey yn ard-saggyrt, as ghiare eh yn chleaysh jeh. Va ennym yn er-mooinjerey shen Malchus.

Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus.


Eisht dooyrt Yeesey rish Peddyr, Cur seose dty chliwe ayns y fine: yn cappan ta my Ayr er chur dou, nagh niu-ym eh?

Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?


Eisht ghow yn cheshaght, as y captan, as fir-oik ny Hewnyn Yeesey, as chiangle ad eh.

Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him,


As hug ad lhieu ersooyl eh gys Annas hoshiaght (son v'eh shen ny ayr-'sy-leigh da Caiaphas, va ny ard-saggyrt yn vleïn shen).

And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year.


Nish she Caiaphas v'er choyrlaghey ny Hewnyn, dy row eh ymmyrchagh un dooinney dy ve er ny choyrt gy-baase son y pobble.

Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.


As deiyr Simon Peddyr as ostyl elley er Yeesey. Yn ostyl shen va ainjys ec yn ard-saggyrt er, as hie eh stiagh marish Yeesey gys thie yn ard-saggyrt,

And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple: that disciple was known unto the high priest, and went in with Jesus into the palace of the high priest.


Agh hass Peddyr ec y dorrys er cheu mooie. Eisht hie magh yn ostyl elley shen va ainjys ec yn ard-saggyrt er, as loayr eh reeish va currym y dorrys urree, as hug eh lesh stiagh Peddyr.

But Peter stood at the door without. Then went out that other disciple, which was known unto the high priest, and spake unto her that kept the door, and brought in Peter.


Eisht dooyrt y ven-aeg va currym y dorrys urree rish Peddyr, Nagh nee fer jeh eiyrtyssee yn dooinney shoh uss neesht? Dooyrt eshyn, Cha nee.

Then saith the damsel that kept the door unto Peter, Art not thou also one of this man's disciples? He saith, I am not.


As va ny sharvaantyn as ny fir-oik nyn shassoo ayns shen, ec aile geayil v'ad er n'yannoo (son ve feayr) as v'ad dyn jiow ad-hene.

And the servants and officers stood there, who had made a fire of coals; for it was cold: and they warmed themselves: and Peter stood with them, and warmed himself.


Dênee yn ard-saggyrt eisht jeh Yeesey mychione e eiyrtyssee, as mychione yn ynsagh echey.

The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine.


Dreggyr Yeesey eh, Loayr mee dy foshlit rish y theihll: dynsee mee kinjagh ayns y cheeill, as ayns y chiamble, raad ta ny Hewnyn kinjagh taaghey, as dy follit cha vel mee er ghra nhee erbee

Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing.


Cre'n-fa t'ou fenaght jeem's? fenee jeusyn t'er my chlashtyn, cre ta mee er ghra roo: cur-my-ner ta fys ocsyn cre ta mee er ghra.

Why askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what I have said unto them: behold, they know what I said.


As tra v'eh erreish ny goan shoh y loayrt woaill fer jeh ny fir-oik va ny hassoo ayns shen Yeesey lesh bass e laue, gra, Nee shen myr t'ou freggyrt yn ard-saggyrt?

And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest thou the high priest so?


Dansoor Yeesey eh, My ta mee er loayrt dy olk, ymmyrk feanish jeh'n olk: agh my loayr mee dy mie, cre'n-fa woaill uss mee?

Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smitest thou me?


Nish va Annas er choyrt eh kianlt gys Caiaphas yn ard-saggyrt.

Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high priest.


As va Simon Peddyr ny hassoo as dy hiow eh-hene: dooyrt ad er-y-fa shen rish, Nagh nee fer jeh e eiyrtyssee uss neesht? Dob eh, as dooyrt eh, Cha nee.

And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said therefore unto him, Art not thou also one of his disciples? He denied it, and said, I am not.


Dooyrt fer jeh sharvaantyn yn ard-saggyrt (va mooinjerys dasyn va Peddyr er ghiarey yn chleaysh jeh) Nagh vaik mish oo m?rish ayns y gharey?

One of the servants of the high priest, being his kinsman whose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not I see thee in the garden with him?


Eisht dob Peddyr reesht, as chelleeragh gherr y kellagh.

Peter then denied again: and immediately the cock crew.


Eisht hug ad lhieu Yeesey veih Caiaphas gys halley ny briwnys: as ve moghey, as cha jagh ad-hene stiagh ayns halley ny briwnys, er-aggle dy beagh ad anchasherick; as nagh voddagh ad yn Eayn-caisht y ee.

Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover.


Hie Pilate eisht magh huc, as dooyrt eh, Cre ta shiu dy chur gys lieh yn dooinney shoh?

Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation bring ye against this man?


Dreggyr adsyn as dooyrt ad, Er-be dy nee drogh-yantagh eh, cha beagh shin er livrey hood's eh.

They answered and said unto him, If he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up unto thee.


Eisht dooyrt Pilate roo Gow-jee shiuish eh, as jean-jee eh y vriwnys cordail rish y leigh eu hene. Dooyrt ny Hewnyn er-y-fa shen rish, Cha vel eh lowal dooinyn dooinney erbee y chur gy-baase:

Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and judge him according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death:


Shoh myr va cooilleenit yn raa loayr Yeesey, cowraghey cre'n baase v'eh dy hurranse.

That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spake, signifying what death he should die.


Eisht hie Pilate stiagh reesht ayns halley ny briwnys, as deïe eh er Yeesey, as dooyrt eh rish, Nee ree ny Hewnyn oo?

Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews?


Dreggyr Yeesey eh, Vel uss dy ghra shoh jeed hene, ny nee feallagh elley dinsh dhyt eh my-mychione's?

Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me?


Dreggyr Pilate, Vel mish my Hew? she dty ashoon hene as ny ard-saggyrtyn t'er livrey oo seose hym's: Cre t'ou er n'yannoo?

Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done?


Dreggyr Yeesey, Cha vel my reeriaght's jeh'n theihll shoh: dy beagh my reeriaght jeh'n theihll shoh; eisht veagh my harvaantyn er chaggey, nagh beign er my livrey gys ny Hewnyn, agh nish cha nee veih shoh ta my reeriaght.

Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.


Dooyrt Pilate er-y-fa shen rish, Vel oo dty ree eisht? Dreggyr Yeesey, T'ou uss er ghra eh, ta mee my ree. Er son shoh ruggyr mee, as er-yn-oyr shoh haink mee gys y theihll, dy ymmyrkey feanish gys yn irriney, Ta dy chooilley unnane ta jeh'n irriney clashtyn my choraa.

Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.


Dooyrt Pilate rish, Cre ta'n irriney shen? as tra v'eh er ghra shoh, hie eh magh reesht gys ny Hewnyn, as dooyrt eh roo, Cha vel mish er gheddyn foill erbee ayn.

Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.


Agh ta cliaghtey eu mee dy eaysley diu fer ec y Chaisht: nailliu er-y-fa shen mee dy eaysley diu ree ny Hewnyn?

But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews?


Eisht deie ad ooilley reesht, gra, Cha nee eh shoh, agh Barabbas. Nish va Barabbas ny roosteyr.

Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.
