The Bible


Son ta fys eu hene, chaarjyn, tra haink shin hoshiaght hiu, nagh row eh ayns fardail.

For yourselves, brethren, know our entrance in unto you, that it was not in vain:


Agh dy jarroo lurg dooin ve roïe er hurranse, as er gheddyn dellal scammyltagh, myr ta fys eu, ec Philippi, va shin dunnal ayns y [Jee ain, dy preacheil diu sushtal] Yee lesh lane streeu.

But even after that we had suffered before, and were shamefully entreated, as ye know, at Philippi, we were bold in our God to speak unto you the gospel of God with much contention.


Son cha row yn choyrle ain veih molteyrys, ny veih neu-ghlennid, ny ayns foalsaght:

For our exhortation was not of deceit, nor of uncleanness, nor in guile:


Agh myr va shin lowit liorish Jee currym y tushtal dy ve orrin, dy jarroo myr shoh ta shin loayrt, cha nee shirrey deiney y wooiys, agh Jee, ta trial nyn greeaghyn.

But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts.


Son chamoo ren shin ec traa erbee ymmyd jeh goan brynnagh myr ta fys eu hene er, ny coodagh erbee dy haynt: Jee ta feanish.

For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know, nor a cloke of covetousness; God is witness:


Chamoo veih deiney hirr shin gloyr, chamoo veueish, ny foast veih feallagh elley, ga dy row cairys ain dy choyrt shiu gys cost, myr ostyllyn Chreest.

Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might have been burdensome, as the apostles of Christ.


Agh va shin aashagh ny vud eu, dy jarroo myr ta bondyr jannoo mooar jeh e cloan hene.

But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children:


Myr shen ayns slane aigney-mie diuish, va shin booiagh dy hirveish erriu, cha nee ynrycan sushtal Yee, agh eer nyn mieys hene, er-yn-oyr dy row shiu deyr dooin.

So being affectionately desirous of you, we were willing to have imparted unto you, not the gospel of God only, but also our own souls, because ye were dear unto us.


Son ta cooinaghtyn eu, vraaraghyn, er y tooilleil as y deinys ain: son gobbraghey oie as laa, er-yn-oyr nagh jinnagh shin currym er veg eu, ren shin sushtal Yee y phreacheil diu.

For ye remember, brethren, our labour and travail: for labouring night and day, because we would not be chargeable unto any of you, we preached unto you the gospel of God.


Ta shiuish feanishyn, as Jee myrgeddin, cre cha crauee as ynrick; as gyn loght dymmyrk shin shin-hene nyn mast' euish ta credjal:

Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe:


Myr ta fys eu, kys ren shin coyrlaghey, as gerjaghey, as currymaghey dagh unnane eu myr ta ayr e chloan,

As ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of you, as a father doth his children,


Dy jinnagh shiu gymmyrkey shiu hene feeu jeh Jee, t'er n'eamagh erriu gys e reeriaght as e ghloyr.

That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.


Er y choontey shoh myrgeddin, ta shin coyrt booise kinjagh gys Jee, er-yn-oyr tra ghow shiu rish goo Yee cheayll shiu voïnyn, ghow shiu eh cha nee myr goo deiney, agh (myr te ayns firrinys) goo Yee, ta dy breeoil gobbraghey ayndiuish ta credjal.

For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.


Son haink shiuish vraaraghyn, dy ve eiyrtyssee er kialteenyn Yee, ta ayns Judea ayns Creest Yeesey: son ta shiuish neesht er hurranse ny reddyn cheddin liorish ny deiney-cheerey eu hene, dy jarroo myr t'ad ayn liorish ny Hewnyn:

For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews:


Chur dy baase chammah yn Chiarn Yeesey, as ny phadeyryn oc hene, as er n'yannoo tranlaase orrin; as cha vel ad pleasal Jee, as t'ad noi dy chooilley ghooinney:

Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men:


Lhiettal shin veih loayrt rish ny Ashoonyn-quaagh, dy voddagh ad v'er nyn sauail, dy lhieeney seose dy kinjagh towse nyn beccaghyn: son ta corree dy heet orroo gys y chooid sodjey.

Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins alway: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost.


Agh myr va shin, vraaraghyn, er nyn scarrey veue son tammylt, ayns persoon, cha nee ayns cree, va shin ny s'aggindee lesh yeearree jeean dy akin yn eddin eu.

But we, brethren, being taken from you for a short time in presence, not in heart, endeavoured the more abundantly to see your face with great desire.


Shen-y-fa veagh shin er jeet hiu (dy jarroo mish Paul) keayrt as keayrt: agh ren Satan nyn lhiettal.

Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us.


Son cre ta nyn dreishteil, ny nyn moggey, ny nyn attey dy ghennallys? nagh nee dy jarroo shiuish kionfenish nyn Jiarn Yeesey Creest, ec y cheet echey?

For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?


Son shiuish nyn ghloyr as nyn moggey.

For ye are our glory and joy.
