The Bible


Cre'n vondeish eisht t'ec yn Ew? ny cre'n cosney ta liorish giarey chymmylt?

What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?


Mooarane er dy chooilley aght: hoshiaght, son dy nee dauesyn v'er ny livrey goo Yee.

Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God.


Son cre mannagh ren paart credjal? jean y mee-chredjue ocsyn firrinys Yee y choyrt naardey?

For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?


Ny lhig eh Jee: dy jarroo, lhig da Jee ve firrinagh, as dy chooilley ghooinney ny vreagerey; myr te scruit, Dy voddagh oo v'er dty heyrey ayns dty raa, as ynrick tra t'ou briwnys.

God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.


Agh myr ta'n neu-ynrickys ainyn soilshaghey magh ynrickys Yee, cre jir mayd? Vel Jee neu-chairagh ta goaill kerraghey? (ta mee loayrt myr dooinney)

But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man)


Ny lhig eh Jee: son kys eisht nee Jee yn seihll y vriwnys?

God forbid: for then how shall God judge the world?


Son my ta firrinys Yee (jir ad) er vishaghey ny smoo trooid y neu-ynrickys aym's gys y ghloyr echeysyn: cre'n-fa foast ta mish myrgeddin er my vriwnys myr peccagh?

For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner?


Agh cha nee (myr ta shin er nyn oltooan, as myr ta paart liassaghey dy vel shin gra,) Lhig dooin olk y yannoo, dy vod mie cheet jeh? ta'n deyrey oc cairagh.

And not rather, (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) Let us do evil, that good may come? whose damnation is just.


Cre eisht? vel shinyn ny share na adsyn? Cha vel er aght erbee: son ta shin ro?e er phrowal dy vel chammah Ewnyn as Ashoonee, ooilley fo peccah;

What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;


Myr te scruit, Cha vel fer erbee cairagh, cha vel unnane:

As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:


Cha vel fer erbee ta toiggal, cha vel fer erbee ta shirrey lurg Jee.

There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.


T'ad ooilley er n'gholl ass y raad, t'ad ooilley dyn ymmyd: cha vel fer hene ta jannoo dy mie, cha vel unnane.

They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.


Ta'n scoarnagh oc oaie foshlit; lesh nyn jengey t'ad er chliaghtey molteyrys; ta pyshoon ard-nieughyn fo nyn meillyn:

Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:


Ta'n beeal oc lane dy ghweeaghyn as dy herriuid:

Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:


Ta ny cassyn oc gastey dy gheayrtey fuill.

Their feet are swift to shed blood:


Ta toyrt-mow as treihys ayns nyn raaidyn:

Destruction and misery are in their ways:


As raad y chee cha bione daue.

And the way of peace have they not known:


Cha vel aggle Yee edyr roish nyn sooillyn.

There is no fear of God before their eyes.


Nish ta fys ain cre-erbee ta'n leigh dy ghra, te dy ghra roosyn ta fo'n leigh: dy vod dagh beeal ve ny-host, as dy vod ooilley'n seihll ve oolee fenish Yee.

Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.


Shen-y-fa liorish obbraghyn y leigh cha bee dooinney erbee er ny heyrey ayns e hilley: son liorish y leigh ta toiggal ain jeh peccah.

Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.


Son nish ta cairys Yee fegooish y leigh er ny hoilshaghey, myr ta'n leigh as ny phadeyryn gymmyrkey feanish lesh;

But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;


Dy jarroo cairys Yee, ta liorish credjue Yeesey Creest, dauesyn ooilley, as orroosyn ooilley ta credjal; son cha vel liettrimys erbee:

Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:


Son ta ooilley er n'yannoo peccah, as er jeet giare jeh gloyr Yee.

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;


Dy nastee jeant seyr liorish e ghrayse, trooid y livrey-ys ta ayns Yeesey Creest:

Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:


Eh ta Jee er chiarail dy ve ny lhiassaghey, trooid credjue ayns e uill, dy hoilshaghey magh e chairys son leih peccaghyn t'er n'gholl shaghey, trooid meenid

Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;


Dy hoilshaghey magh, ta mee gra, ec y traa shoh e chairys: dy voddagh eh ve cairagh, as eshyn y heyrey ta credjal ayns Yeesey.

To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.


Cre vel boggys eisht? te giarit magh. Liorish cre'n leigh? nee jeh obbraghyn? Cha nee: agh liorish y leigh dy chredjue.

Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.


Shen-y-fa ta shin briwnys, dy vel dooinney er ny heyrey liorish credjue fegooish obbraghyn y leigh.

Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.


Vel eshyn Jee ny Hewnyn ny-lomarcan? nagh vel eh myrgeddin [Jee] ny Hashoonee? S'feer jeh ny Ashoonee myrgeddin.

Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also:


Fakin dy nee yn un Jee cheddin, nee seyrey yn giarey-chymmylt liorish credjue, as yn an-ghiarey-chymmylt trooid credjue.

Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.


Vel shin eisht rassey yn leigh trooid credjue? ny lhig eh Jee: dy jarroo firrinagh, ta shin niartaghey'n leigh.

Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.
