The Bible


Lhig da dooinney myr shen soiaghey j'inyn, myr jeh shirveishee Chreest, as stiurtyn jeh folliaghtyn Yee.

Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.


Ny sodjey, te currym er ny yerkal rish ayns stiurtyn dy bee dooinney er ny gheddyn firrinagh.

Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.


Agh er my hon hene cha vel mee coontey jeh agh red feer fardalagh, dy beign's er my vriwnys lieriuish, ny liorish briwnys dooinney erbee; dy jarroo cha vel mee briwnys mee hene.

But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man's judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self.


Son ga nagh voddym coyrt nhee erbee gys my lieh hene, ny-yeih cha vel mee liorish shoh er my heyrey; agh eshyn ta dy my vriwnys yn Chiarn eh.

For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord.


Shen-y-fa ny jean-jee nhee erbee y vriwnys roish y traa, derrey hig y Chiarn ver chammah lesh gys soilshey folliaghtyn y dorraghys, as nee soilshaghey magh smooinaghtyn ny creeaghyn; as eisht yiow dy chooilley ghooinney moylley veih Jee.

Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.


As ny reddyn shoh, vraaraghyn, ta mee ayns co-soylaghey er ghoaill orrym pene, as er Apollos, er y ghraih euish; liorin dy voddagh shiu gynsaghey, gyn dy smooinaghtyn jeh deiney erskyn ny ta scruit, nagh bee veg eu boggyssagh ass lieh fer erskyn fer elley.

And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another.


Son quoi eh ta coyrt dhyt's yn vondeish erskyn fer elley? As cre t'ayd nagh vel oo er gheddyn? nish my hooar oo eh, cre'n-fa t'ou boggyssagh, myr nagh beagh oo er gheddyn eh?

For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?


Nish ta shiu jeant magh, nish ta shiu berchagh, ta shiu er reill myr reeaghyn nyn vegooish: as dy baillish Jee dy jinnagh shiu reill? dy voddagh shinyn reill myrgeddin mêriu.

Now ye are full, now ye are rich, ye have reigned as kings without us: and I would to God ye did reign, that we also might reign with you.


Son ta mee smooinaghtyn dy vel Jee er hoiaghey magh shinyn ny ostyllyn er-jerrey ooilley, myr deiney faagit mooie son baase. Son ta shinyn shilley yindyssagh da'n seihll, as da ainleyn, as da deiney.

For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men.


Ta shinyn goit son ommydanyn er coontey Chreest, agh ta shiuish creeney ayns Creest: ta shinyn annoon, agh ta shiuish lajer: ta shiuish ooasle; agh ta beg er ny hoiaghey j'inyn.

We are fools for Christ's sake, but ye are wise in Christ; we are weak, but ye are strong; ye are honourable, but we are despised.


Gys y traa shoh hene, ta shinyn chammah accryssagh as paagh, as ta shin feme coamrey, as er nyn mwoalley, as cha vel cummal shickyr ain ayns boayl erbee

Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace;


As ta shin laboragh, gobbraghey lesh nyn laueyn hene: tra ta shin oltooanit, ta shin bannaghey: tra ta shin tranlaasit, ta shin dy ymmyrkey eh:

And labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it:


Tra ta scammylt er ny choyrt dooin, ta shin coyrt goan mie: ta shin myr trustyr y theihll, as breinid dy chooilley nhee gys y laa t'ayn jiu.

Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.


Cha vel mee scrieu ny reddyn shoh dy naaraghey shiu, agh myr my chloan shynney lhiam ta mee cur coyrle diu.

I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you.


Son ga dy vel eu jeih thousane fir-ynsee ayns Creest, foast cha nhimmey ayr t'eu: son ayns Creest Yeesey ta mish er gheddyn shiu trooid y sushtal.

For though ye have ten thousand instructers in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.


Shen-y-fa ta mee guee erriu, eiyr-jee orrym's.

Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.


Son yn oyr shoh ta mee er chur er chaghteraght hiu Timotheus, ta my vac graihagh, as firrinagh ayns y Chiarn, ver shiu ayns cooinaghtyn jeh ny raaidyn aym's ta ayns Creest, myr ta mee gynsaghey dy chooilley raad ayns ooilley ny kialteenyn.

For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is my beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance of my ways which be in Christ, as I teach every where in every church.


Nish ta paart er n'aase mooaralagh myr nagh darrin hiu.

Now some are puffed up, as though I would not come to you.


Agh hig-ym hiu dy gerrit, lesh kied y Chiarn, as toig-ym eisht, cha nee yn ghlare ocsyn ta mooaralagh, agh y phooar.

But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and will know, not the speech of them which are puffed up, but the power.


Son cha vel reeriaght Yee [shassoo] ayns taggloo, agh ayns pooar.

For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.


Cre sailliu? jig-ym hiu lesh slatt, ny ayns graih, as ayns y spyrryd dy veenid.

What will ye? shall I come unto you with a rod, or in love, and in the spirit of meekness?
