The Bible


Shen-y-fa, tra nagh voddagh shin lhiggey-shaghey veg sodjey, ghow shin ayns laue mish dy ve faagit ec Athens my lomarcan:

Wherefore when we could no longer forbear, we thought it good to be left at Athens alone;


As chur shin Timotheus nyn mraar as shirveishagh Yee, as nyn sheshey-labree ayns sushtal Chreest, dy niartaghey shiu, as dy gherjaghey shiu mychione nyn gredjue:

And sent Timotheus, our brother, and minister of God, and our fellowlabourer in the gospel of Christ, to establish you, and to comfort you concerning your faith:


Nagh beagh dooinney erbee er ny ghleayshagh liorish ny seaghynyn shoh: son ta fys eu hene dy nee gys shoh ta shin er ve kiarit,

That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto.


Son dy firrinagh, tra va shin mêriu, dinsh shin diu ro-laue, dy row shin dy hurranse seaghyn, dy jarroo myr haink eh gy-kione, as ta fys eu hene er.

For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as it came to pass, and ye know.


Er-yn-oyr shoh tra nagh voddin lhiggey shaghey ny sodjey, chur mee chaghter dy gheddyn fys er nyn gredjue, er-aggle liorish saaseyn erbee dy vel y mioleyder er violaghey shiu, as yn obbyr ain ayns fardail.

For this cause, when I could no longer forbear, I sent to know your faith, lest by some means the tempter have tempted you, and our labour be in vain.


Agh nish tra haink Timotheus veueish hooinyn, as er chur lesh mârish coontey mie jeh'n chredjue as y ghraih eu, as dy ve shiu kinjagh gimraa dy dooie orrin, geearree dy jeean dy akin shinyn, myr ta shinyn myrgeddin dy akin shiuish

But now when Timotheus came from you unto us, and brought us good tidings of your faith and charity, and that ye have good remembrance of us always, desiring greatly to see us, as we also to see you:


Shen-y-fa, vraaraghyn, va shin er nyn gherjaghey my-nyn-gione ayns ooilley nyn seaghyn as êgin liorish y chredjue eu:

Therefore, brethren, we were comforted over you in all our affliction and distress by your faith:


Son nish ta shin bio, my ta shiu shassoo shickyr ayns y Chiarn.

For now we live, if ye stand fast in the Lord.


Son cre'n booise oddys mayd reesht y choyrt da Jee er y lieh eu, son ooilley yn boggey ta shin dy ghoaill er y ghraih euish kiongoyrt rish Jee,

For what thanks can we render to God again for you, for all the joy wherewith we joy for your sakes before our God;


Oie as laa goaill padjer erskyn towse jeean dy akin yn eddin eu, as dy yannoo magh shen ny ta dy laccal ayns nyn gredjue?

Night and day praying exceedingly that we might see your face, and might perfect that which is lacking in your faith?


Nish dy jean Jee hene as nyn Ayr, as nyn Jiarn Yeesey Creest, yn raad ain y chiartaghey hiuish.

Now God himself and our Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way unto you.


As dy der y Chiarn erriuish gaase as bishaghey ayns graih yn derrey yeh da'n jeh elley, as da dy chooilley ghooinney, dy jarroo myr ta shin diuish:

And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you:


Gys y jerrey dy vod eh niartaghey ny creeaghyn eu gyn loght ayns casherickys kionfenish Jee, dy jarroo nyn Ayr, ec cheet nyn Jiarn Yeesey Creest, marish ooilley e nooghyn.

To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.
