The Bible


Paul ostyl Yeesey Creest liorish oardagh Yee nyn saualtagh, as y Chiarn Yeesey Creest, eh ta nyn dreishteil;

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope;


Gys Timothy, my vac hene ayns y chredjue: Grayse, myghin, as shee veih Jee nyn Ayr, as Yeesey Creest nyn Jiarn.

Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.


Myr ghuee mee ort dy uirriaght kinjagh ee Ephesus, tra hie mee gys Macedonia, dy voddagh oo raaue y choyrt da paart gyn dy ynsaghey sushtal erbee elley,

As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine,


Chamoo dy chur geill da raaghyn fardalagh, as coontey fegooish bun ny baare er sheelogheyn, ta doostey questionyn [streeuagh], ny smoo na ynsagh crauee, ta ayns credjue.

Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.


Nish ta graih lhieeney yn anney, ayns cree glen, as cooinsheanse vie, as credjue firrinagh;

Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:


Veih ta paart er n'gholl er-shaghryn, as er hyndaa gy-lhiattee gys argane fardalagh;

From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;


Geearree dy ve fir-ynsee yn leigh, fegooish toiggal cre t'ad dy ghra, ny cre mychione t'ad loayrt.

Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.


Agh ta fys ain dy vel y leigh mie, my ta dooinney jannoo ymmyd lowal jeh;

But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;


Toiggal shoh, nagh vel y leigh jeant cour y dooinney ynrick, agh cour ny mee-reilltee as ny mee-viallee, cour ny meechrauee as peccee, cour deiney olk as neu-chasherick, cour nyn lheid ta coyrt nyn ayraghyn as moiraghyn dy baase, cour dunveryn,

Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,


Cour maarderee, ny chour ocsyn ta cur rish peccah neu-ghooghyssagh, ny chour ocsyn. ta geid deiney, cour breageryn, cour persoonyn oaiagh, as my ta red erbee elley ta noi ynsagh follan,

For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;


Cordail rish sushtal gloyroil yn Jee bannit, va er ny choyrt gys my churrym.

According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.


As ta mee cur booise da Creest Yeesey nyn Jiarn, t'er my niartaghey, son dy ghow eh mee dy ve firrinagh, pointeil mee gys oik y chirveish;

And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;


Mish va roïe loayrt dy olkyssagh [noi Creest], as my hranlaasagh, as eulyssagh. Agh hooar mee myghin, er-yn-oyr dy ren mee eh dy neu-hushtagh, ayns mee-chredjue:

Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.


As va grayse nyn Jiarn erskyn towse orrym, lesh credjue, as graih ta ayns Creest Yeesey.

And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.


Ta shoh raa firrinagh, as feeu ard-soiagh ve jeant jeh, dy daink Yeesey Creest gys y theihll dy hauail peccee; jeu ta mish yn ard er.

This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.


Ny-yeih, er-yn-oyr shoh hooar mee myghin, ayn-yms dy voddagh Yeesey Creest hoshiaght soilshaghey magh dy chooilley hurranse-foddey, son sampleyr dauesyn yinnagh ny lurg shoh credjal aynsyn gys bea dy bragh farraghtyn.

Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.


Nish gys y Ree dy bragh beayn, va er-dy-rieau, nagh vod ve er ny akin, gys yn ynrycan Jee creeney, dy row ooashley as gloyr, son dy bragh as dy bragh. Amen.

Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.


Yn currym shoh ta mee dy hreishteil hood, vac Timothy, cordail rish y phadeyrys va jeant ro-laue my-dty-chione, dy vod oo liorish shen prowal oo hene dty hidoor mie

This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;


Freaylley credjue, as cooinsheanse vie liorish scarrey roo shoh, ta paart dy bollagh er stroie nyn gredjue.

Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:


Jeu shoh ta Hymeneus as Alexander; ad ta mee er livrey gys y drogh spyrryd, dy vod ad gynsaghey dyn dy loayrt goan-mollaghtagh.

Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.
