The Bible


Nish mychione shirveish er ny nooghyn, cha lhiass dou scrieu hiu.

For as touching the ministering to the saints, it is superfluous for me to write to you:


Son ta fys aym er arryltys nyn aigney, jeh shen ta mee boggyssagh roosyn ta jeh Macedonia, dy row Achaia aarloo blein er-dy-henney; as ta'n ghraih jeean euish er ghreinnaghey ymmodee.

For I know the forwardness of your mind, for which I boast of you to them of Macedonia, that Achaia was ready a year ago; and your zeal hath provoked very many.


Ny-yeih hug mee ny braaraghyn hiu, er-aggle dy beagh yn voggyssagh ain jiuish ayns fardail ayns y chooish shoh; dy voddagh shiu, myr dooyrt mee, ve aarloo:

Yet have I sent the brethren, lest our boasting of you should be in vain in this behalf; that, as I said, ye may be ready:


Er-aggle my hig adsyn jeh Macedonia mârym, as shiuish y gheddyn ergooyl, dy beagh shinyn (cha nee dy ghra shiuish) naarit son y voggyssagh daaney shoh.

Lest haply if they of Macedonia come with me, and find you unprepared, we (that we say not, ye) should be ashamed in this same confident boasting.


Er shoh yeeagh mee er dy ve ymmyrchagh dy choyrlaghey ny braaraghyn, dy gholl hiu ro-laue, as ny toyrtyssyn eu y chur cooidjagh, jeh shoh va raaue eu roïe, dy voddagh yn chooid cheddin ve aarloo, myr toyrtys aggindagh, as cha nee myr êginit.

Therefore I thought it necessary to exhort the brethren, that they would go before unto you, and make up beforehand your bounty, whereof ye had notice before, that the same might be ready, as a matter of bounty, and not as of covetousness.


As shoh ta mee dy ghra, Eshyn ta cuirr thanney, nee myrgeddin buinn thanney: as eshyn ta cuirr palchey, nee myrgeddin buinn dy palchey.

But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.


Lhig da dy chooilley ghooinney coyrt da'n voght, myr ta e chree coyrt roish; cha nee mooaraghey, ny myr dy beagh eh êginit huggey: son shynney lesh Jee eshyn ta coyrt dy aggindagh.

Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.


As ta Jee abyl dy chur er dy chooilley ghrayse bishaghey diu; ayns slane sonnys eu jeh dy chooilley nhee, dy vod shiu bishaghey ayns dy chooilley obbyr vie:

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:


(Myr te scruit, T'eh er skeayley dy lhean; t'eh er choyrt da ny boghtyn: ta e chairys farraghtyn son dy bragh.

(As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever.


Nish dy jean eshyn ta shirveish rass er y chorreyder, chammah shirveish arran son nyn meaghey, as bishaghey nyn arroo-correy, as cur er-ash mess yn feoiltys eu.)

Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;)


Dy palchey er nyn yannoo magh ayns dy chooilley nhee gys dy chooilley feoiltys, ta coyrt oyr booise gys Jee er y choontey ainyn

Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God.


Son cha vel shirveish y ghiastyllys shoh ny-lomarcan jannoo feaysley er ymmyrch ny nooghyn agh te coyrt er y hoshiaght myrgeddin mooarane booise gys Jee;

For the administration of this service not only supplieth the want of the saints, but is abundant also by many thanksgivings unto God;


Tra liorish cowrey'n ghiastyllys shoh t'ad gloyraghey Jee son y viallys foshlit euish gys sushtal Chreest, as son y toyrtys feoilt eu daue hene, as da dy chooilley ghooinney.

Whiles by the experiment of this ministration they glorify God for your professed subjection unto the gospel of Christ, and for your liberal distribution unto them, and unto all men;


As liorish ny padjeryn ocsyn er nyn son, myr t'ad goaill foddeeaght ny lurg eu er coontey ard ghrayse Yee ayndiu,

And by their prayer for you, which long after you for the exceeding grace of God in you.


Booise dy row gys Jee son e ghioot erskyn-insh.

Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.
