The Bible


Nish mychione reddyn t'er ny ouralley gys jallooyn, ta fys ain dy vel toiggal ain ooilley. Ta tushtey sheidey lesh moyrn, agh ta graih niartaghey 'sy chredjue.

Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth.


As my ta dooinney erbee smooinaghtyn dy vel toiggal echey jeh nhee erbee, cha vel foast toiggal echey jeh nhee erbee myr lhisagh eh.

And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.


Agh my ta dooinney erbee graihagh er Jee, ta'n fer cheddin er ny ghoaill rish liorishyn.

But if any man love God, the same is known of him.


Mychione gee ny reddyn shen eisht t'er ny hebbal ayns oural gys jallooyn, ta fys ain nagh vel jalloo monney 'sy theihll, as nagh vel Jee erbee elley ayn agh unnane.

As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one.


Son ga dy vel ayn adsyn ta enmyssit jeeghyn, edyr eh ve ayns niau ny er y thalloo, (myr ta jeeghyn ymmodee, as chiarnyn ymmodee)

For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,)


Agh dooinyn cha vel ayn agh un Jee, yn Ayr, jehsyn ta dy chooilley nhee, as shinyn aynsyn; as un Chiarn Yeesey Creest, liorishyn ta dy chooilley nhee, as shinyn liorishyn.

But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.


Ny-yeih cha vel ec dy chooilley ghooinney yn tushtey shen: son ta paart liorish y toiggal t'oc jeh'n jalloo gys y traa t'ayn, gee jeh myr red t'er ny ouralley gys jalloo; as ta'n chooin-sheanse annoon oc seaghnit.

Howbeit there is not in every man that knowledge: for some with conscience of the idol unto this hour eat it as a thing offered unto an idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled.


Agh cha vel bee dy voylley shin gys Jee: son edyr shin dy ee, cha vel shin ny share; ny edyr shin gyn gee, cha vel shin veg smessey.

But meat commendeth us not to God: for neither, if we eat, are we the better; neither, if we eat not, are we the worse.


Agh cur-jee twoaie er-aggle liorish aght erbee dy bee shoh nyn reamys oyr dauesyn ta annoon dy huittym ayns peccah.

But take heed lest by any means this liberty of your's become a stumblingblock to them that are weak.


Son my hee dooinney erbee uss, ta tushtey ayd, dty hoie ec bee ayns chiamble y jalloo, nagh bee yn chooinsheanse echeysyn ta annoon, miolit dy ee ny reddyn shen ta er ny hebbal da jallooyn:

For if any man see thee which hast knowledge sit at meat in the idol's temple, shall not the conscience of him which is weak be emboldened to eat those things which are offered to idols;


As kyndagh rish yn tushtey ayd's nee dty vraar annoon cherraghtyn, er e hon hur Creest baase?

And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died?


Agh tra ta shiu myr shoh cur oyr peccah raad ny braaraghyn, as gortaghey yn chooinsheanse annoon oc, ta shiu jannoo peccah noi Creest.

But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ.


Er-y-fa shen my ver ny ta mee gee oyr da my vraar dy huittym ayns peccah, cha n'ee-ym feill choud as s'bio mee, er-aggle dy dayrn-ym my vraar gys peccah.

Wherefore, if meat make my brother to offend, I will eat no flesh while the world standeth, lest I make my brother to offend.
