As myr va ny Hewnyn goll magh ass y synagogue, ghuee ny Ashoonee dy beagh ny goan shoh er ny phreacheil daue yn nah ghoonaght.

And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath.


As erreish da'n chaglym-cooidjagh v'er skeayley, deiyr ymmodee jeh ny Hewnyn, as jeh ny proselyteyn crauee er Paul as Barnabas; as loayr ad roo, as choyrlee ad ad dy hannaghtyn ayns grayse Yee.

Now when the congregation was broken up, many of the Jews and religious proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas: who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God.


As yn nah ghoonaght haink faggys yn slane ard valley cooidjagh dy chlashtyn goo Yee.

And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God.

But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy, and spake against those things which were spoken by Paul, contradicting and blaspheming.


Eisht daase Paul as Barnabas dunnal as dooyrt ad, Ve ymmyrchagh goo Yee dy ve hoshiaght er ny phreacheil diuish: agh fakin dy vel shiu cur cooyl rish, as briwnys shiu hene neu-feeu jeh'n vea veayn, cur-my-ner ta shinyn chyndaa gys ny Ashoonee.

Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.


Son shen myr ta'n Chiarn er chur sarey dooin, gra, Ta mee er hoiaghey oo seose dy ve dty hoilshey da ny Ashoonee, as dy ve son saualtys gys ardjyn sodjey magh y thallooin.

For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.


As tra cheayll ny Ashoonee shoh ghow ad boggey, as ren ad goo yn Chiarn y ghloyraghey: as whilleen as va feeu as aarloo son y vea veayn ren ad credjal.

And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.


As va goo yn Chiarn er ny ockley magh trooid ooilley yn cheer.

And the word of the Lord was published throughout all the region.


Agh ghreinnee ny Hewnyn ny mraane seyrey va jeh'n chredjue oc, as deiney ooasle yn ard-valley nyn 'oï oc, as dirree ad seose noi Paul as Barnabas, as deiyr ad ad ass ny ardjyn oc.

But the Jews stirred up the devout and honourable women, and the chief men of the city, and raised persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them out of their coasts.


Agh chrie adsyn yn joan jeh nyn gassyn nyn 'oi oc, as haink ad gys Iconium.

But they shook off the dust of their feet against them, and came unto Iconium.


As va ny Creesteenyn lhieent lesh boggey as y Spyrryd Noa.
