The Bible


Lhig da dy chooilley annym ve biallagh da ny pooaraghyn syrjey; son cha vel pooar ayn agh veih Jee: ta ny pooaraghyn t'ayn er nyn bointeil liorish Jee.

Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.


Quoi-erbee er-y-fa shen ta shassoo seose noi'n phooar, t'eh shassoo seose noi oardagh Yee: as nee adsyn ta shassoo seose tayrn kerraghey orroo hene.

Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.


Son cha vel fir-reill oyr aggle da obbraghyn mie, agh da drogh obbraghyn. Nailt eisht ve gyn aggle jeh'n phooar? jean shen ta mie, as yiow moylley er y hon:

For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:


Son shirveishagh Yee eh dhyt's son foays. Agh my t'ou jannoo shen ta olk, gow aggle, son cha vel eh gymmyrkey yn cliwe ayns fardail: son sharvaant Yee eh, fer ta coamrit lesh pooar dy ghoaill cooilleen ersyn ta jannoo olk.

For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.


Shen-y-fa shegin diu ve biallagh, cha nee ny lomarcan son aggle roish kerraghey, agh myrgeddin er graih cooinsheanse.

Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.


Son er y choontey shoh ta shiu myrgeddin geeck keesh: son shirveishee Yee ad, tendeil dy kinjagh er yn eer red shoh.

For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.


Eeck-jee er-y-fa shen da dy chooilley unnane e chair; keesh dauesyn ta keesh cair, custom dauesyn ta custom; aggle dauesyn ta aggle; ooashley dauesyn ta ooashley cair.

Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.


Ny bee-jee fo lhiastynys son nhee erbee da dooinney erbee, agh dy choyrt graih yn derrey yeh da'n jeh elley: son t'eshyn ta graihagh er fer elley, er lhieeney yn leigh.

Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.


Son shoh t'er ny ghra, Cha brish oo poosey, Cha jean oo dunverys, Cha jean oo geid, Cha n'ymmyrk oo feanish foalsey, Cha der oo saynt, as my ta anney erbee elley, te ayns focklyn giarey goit stiagh fo'n raa shoh, ta shen, Ver oo graih da dty naboo myr dhyt hene.

For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.


Cha vel graih jannoo aggair da e naboo; shen-y-fa she graih lhieeney yn leigh.

Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.


As shen, liorish coyrt tastey da'n traa, dy vel eh nish ard traa dy ghoostey ass cadley: son nish ta nyn saualtys ny smessey na ve tra ren shin hoshiaght credjal.

And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.


Ta'n oie foddey ceaut, ta'n laa er-gerrey: lhig dooin er-y-fa shen tilgey ersooyl obbraghyn y dorraghys, as lhig dooin cur orrin eilley yn toilshey.

The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.


Lhig dooin gimmeeaght dy onneragh myr ayns y laa: cha nee ayns rouanys as meshtyrys, cha nee ayns cloie as reaid, cha nee ayns streeu as troo:

Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.


Agh cur-jee erriu yn Chiarn Yeesey Creest, as ny gow-jee kiarail erbee son yn eill, dy chooilleeney yn thaynt eck.

But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
