The Bible


Bee-jee: shiuish er-y-fa shen eiyrtyssee dy Yee, myr cloan ennoil;

Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;


As immee-jee ayns graih, myr ta Creest myrgeddin er chur graih dooinyn, as er choyrt eh-hene er nyn son, chebbal as oural son soar millish da Jee.

And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.


Agh maarderys, as dy chooilley neughlennid, as saynt, ny lhig daue ve wheesh as enmyssit ny vud eu, myr te cooie da nooghyn:

But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;


Chamoo broid, ny glare ommijagh, ny craid, nagh vel jesh; agh ayns ynnyd oc shoh coyrt booise.

Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.


Son shoh ta fys eu er, nagh vel ec maarderagh erbee, ny persoon neu-ghlen, ny ec dooinney sayntoilagh, ta coyrt ammys da jallooyn, eiraght eddyr ayns reeriaght Chreest as Yee.

For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.


Ny lhig da dooinney erbee shiu y volley lesh goan fardalagh: son kyndagh rish ny reddyn shoh ta corree Yee cheet er cloan y vee-viallys.

Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.


Ny bee-jee er-y-fa shen nyn sheshaghyn mâroo;

Be not ye therefore partakers with them.


Son va shiu keayrt dy row dorraghys, agh nish ta shiu soilshey ayns y Chiarn: immee-jee myr cloan y toilshey;

For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:


(Son ta mess y Spyrryd shassoo ayns dy chooilley vieys, as cairys, as firrinys),

(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)


Prowal shen ny ta booisal da'n Chiarn.

Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.


As ny lhig da sheshaght erbee 've eu rish obbraghyn neu-vessoil y dorraghys, agh ny sleaie cur oghsan daue:

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.


Son te nearey wheesh as dy enmys ny reddyn shen ta jeant lioroo dy follit.

For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.


Agh dy chooilley nhee rish ta foill er ny gheddyn, te er ny hoilshaghey liorish y soilshey; son shen ny ta coyrt lesh gys soilshey, she soilshey eh.

But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.


Shen-y-fa t'eh gra, Dooisht, uss ta dty chadley, as irree veih ny merriu, as ver Creest soilshey diu.

Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.


Jeeagh-jee eisht dy jean shiu gimmeeaght dy tastagh, cha nee myr ommydanyn, agh myr sleih creeney,

See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,


Jannoo ymmyd mie jeh'n traa, er-yn-oyr dy vel laghyn seaghnagh ayn.

Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.


Shen-y-fa ny bee-jee neu-hastagh, agh toig-jee cre ta aigney yn Chiarn.

Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.


As ny bee-jee er meshtey lesh feeyn ayn ta neu-heeltys; agh bee-jee er nyn lhieeney lesh y Spyrryd;

And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;


Loayrt riu hene ayns psalmyn as arraneyn-moyllee, as arraneyn spyrrydoil; jannoo bingys as kiaull ayns nyn gree gys y Chiarn;

Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;


Coyrt booise dy kinjagh son dy chooilley nhee da Jee dy jarroo yn Ayr, ayns ennym nyn Jiarn Yeesey Creest;

Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;


Ginjillaghey shiu hene yn derrey yeh gys y jeh elley ayns aggle Yee.

Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.


Shiuish vraane-poost, jean-jee shiu hene y injillaghey gys ny deiney-poost eu, myr gys y Chiarn.

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.


Son y dooinney kione y ven, dy jarroo myr ta Creest kione yn agglish: as eshyn fendeilagh y chorp.

For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.


Shen-y-fa myr ta'n agglish er ny hoiaghey fo Creest, myr shen lhig da ny mraane-poost ve er ny injillaghey gys ny deiney-poost oc ayns dy chooilley nhee.

Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.


Gheiney-poost, cur-jee graih da ny mraane eu, dy jarroo myr hug Creest myrgeddin graih da'n agglish, as hug eh hene er e son:

Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;


Dy voddagh eh ee y chasherickey as y ghlenney lesh niee dy ushtey, liorish y goo.

That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,


Dy voddagh eh ee y hoiaghey magh da hene ny agglish ghloyroil, fegooish spot ny cron, ny veg y lheid; agh dy voddagh ee 've casherick, as fegooish lheamys erbee.

That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.


Myr shen lhisagh deiney graih y choyrt da ny mraane oc myr da ny kirp oc hene: eshyn shynney lesh e ven, shynney lesh eh hene.

So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.


Son cha ren rieau dooinney foast dwoaie 'choyrt da'n eill echey hene; agh t'eh dy veaghey as jannoo mooar jeh, dy jarroo myr ta'n Chiarn jeh'n agglish:

For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:


Son ta shin oltyn jeh e chorp, jeh'n eill, as jeh ny craueyn echey.

For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.


Er-yn-oyr shoh faagee dooinney e ayr as e voir, as bee eh er ny sniemmey gys e ven, as bee ad ny-neesht un eill.

For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.


Ta shoh folliaght mooar: agh ta mish loayrt mychione Creest as yn agglish.

This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.


Ny-yeih, lhig da dagh unnane euish er-lheh myr shen graih y choyrt da e ven dy jarroo myr da hene; as jeeagh dy der y ven arrym da e sheshey.

Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
