The Bible


Ta mee gra'n irriney ayns Creest, cha vel mee jannoo breg, my chooinsheanse myrgeddin gymmyrkey feanish lhiam ayns y Spyrryd Noo.

I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost,


Dy vel aym trimshey trome as dobberan kinjagh ayns my chree.

That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart.


Son baillym dy beign hene giarit magh veih Creest, er graih my vraaraghyn as my chynney cordail rish yn eill:

For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh:


Ta nyn Israeliteyn; dauesyn ta bentyn yn doltanys, as y ghloyr, as ny conaantyn, as coyrt y leigh, as shirveish Yee, as ny gialdinyn;

Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises;


Lhieu va ny ayraghyn, as jeusyn cordail rish yn eill haink Creest, ta harrish ooilley, Jee bannit son dy-bragh. Amen.

Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.


Cha nee dy vod goo Yee ve gyn bree. Son cha nee Israeliteyn ad ooilley, ta jeh Israel.

Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel:


Chamoo son dy nee sluight Abraham ad, dy vel ad ooilley e chloan: agh ayns Isaac bee'n sluight ayd's er nyn eam.

Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.


Ta shen, Adsyn ta nyn gloan jeh'n eill, cha vel ad shoh nyn gloan dy Yee, agh ta cloan yn ghialdynys goit son y sluight.

That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.


Son shoh raa yn ghialdynys, Cordail rish y traa shoh higgym's, as bee mac ec Sara.

For this is the word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sarah shall have a son.


As cha nee shoh ny-lomarcan, agh tra va Rebecca myrgeddin er ghientyn ec yn un cheayrt, dy jarroo liorish nyn ayr Isaac.

And not only this; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac;


(Son roish my daink y chloan er y theihll, chamoo v'ad er n'yannoo mie ny sie dy voddagh oardagh Yee cordail rish e reih arryltagh shassoo, cha nee liorish obbraghyn, agh veihsyn ta geamagh.)

(For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;)


Ve rait r'ee, Nee'n fer shinney yn fer saa y hirveish.

It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger.


Myr te scruit, Ta mee er choyrt graih da Jacob, agh er hoiaghey beg jeh Esau.

As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.


Cre jir mayd eisht? Vel neu-chairys marish Jee? Ny lhig eh Jee.

What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid.


Son t'eh gra rish Moses, Bee'm myghinagh dasyn saillym myghin y hoilshaghey, as bee chymmey aym ersyn da saillym ve chymmoil.

For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.


Myr shen eisht cha vel eh jehsyn ta aignagh, ny jehsyn ta roie, agh jeh Jee ta soilshaghey myghin.

So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.


Son ta'n scriptyr gra rish Pharaoh, Son yn eer oyr shoh ta mee er dty hroggal seose, dy voddin soilshaghey my phooar aynyds, as dy beagh m'ennym's er ny ockley-magh trooid ooilley'n seihll.

For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.


Shen-y-fa t'eh myghinagh, dasyn saillish ve myghinagh, as eshyn saillish, t'eh dy chreoghey.

Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth.


Jir uss eisht rhym, Cre'n-fa t'eh foast feddyn foill? Son quoi t'er hassoo magh noi e aigney?

Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will?


Agh quoi uss, O ghooinney, ta pleadeil noi Jee? jir yn red t'er ny chummey rishyn ren eh y chummey, Cre'n-fa t'ou er my yannoo myr shoh?

Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?


Nagh vel pooar ec y pasheyder harrish y chray, dy yannoo jeh'n un stoo saagh gys ymmyd ooasle, as saagh elley gys ymmyd mee-ooasle?

Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?


Cre my ren Jee, va'n aigney echey dy hoilshaghey e yymmoose, as dy yannoo e phooar cronnal, gymmyrkey lesh lane surranse foddey rish ny siyn dy chorree aarloo son toyrt-mow:

What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:


As dy hoilshaghey berchys e ghloyr er ny siyn dy vyghin, v'eh roïe er chiarail son gloyr?

And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,


Dy jarroo shinyn t'eh er n'eam, cha nee jeh ny Hewnyn ny-lomarcan, agh jeh ny Ashoonee myrgeddin.

Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?


Myr t'eh gra myrgeddin ayns Hosea, Nee'm genmys adsyn my phobble, nagh row my phobble; as ish, my ghraih, nagh row my ghraih.

As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved.


As hig eh gy-kione, raad ve er ny ghra roo, Cha nee shiuish my phobble; ayns shen bee ad er nyn enmys cloan y Jee bio.

And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.


Ta Esaias myrgeddin fockley magh mychione Israel, Ga dy vel earroo cloan Israel myr geinnagh ny marrey, bee fooilliagh er ny hauail.

Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved:


Son nee'n Chiarn. jannoo seose as giarey jeh yn coontey ayns cairys: son nee yn Chiarn obbyr ghiare er y thalloo.

For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.


As myr dooyrt Esaias roïe, Mannagh beagh y Chiarn jeh'n cheshaght-chaggee er vaagail dooin sluight, veagh shin er ny ve myr Sodoma, as jeant casley rish Gomorrha.

And as Esaias said before, Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodoma, and been made like unto Gomorrha.


Cre jir mayd eisht? Dy vel ny Ashoonee nagh ren geiyrt er cairys, er roshtyn gys cairys dy jarroo yn chairys ta liorish credjue:

What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith.


Agh cha vel Israel, va geiyrt er ynrickys y leigh, er roshtyn gys leigh yn chairys.

But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness.


Cre'n-fa? Er-yn-oyr nagh hir ad er y hon liorish credjue, agh myr dy beagh eh liorish obbraghyn y leigh: son ren ad snapperal ec y chlagh hug orroo tuittym;

Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone;


Myr te scruit, Cur-my-ner, ta mee soiaghey ayns Sion clagh-snapperal, as creg vees oyr tuittym: as quoi-erbee ta credjal ersyn, cha jig eh giare jeh e hreishteil.

As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
