The Bible


Mish ta'n Spyrryd ginsh dy plain, dy jean paart ayns ny laghyn s'jerree tuittym veih'n chredjue, coyrt geill da spyrrydyn molteyragh, as ynsagh drogh-spyrrydyn;

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;


Ginsh vreagyn ayns craueeaght-foalsey, yn chooinsheanse oc creoghit lesh yiarn Jiarg;

Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;


Lhiettal dy phoosey, as sarey dy reayll veih bee, ta Jee er chroo dy ve er ny ghoaill lesh toyrt-booise lioroosyn ta credjal as toiggal yn irriney.

Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.


Son ta ooilley cretooryn Yee mie, as dyn nhee erbee dy ve mee-lowit, my te er ny ghoaill lesh toyrt-booise:

For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:


Son te er ny chasherickey liorish goo Yee, as padjer.

For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.


My nee oo ny braaraghyn y choyrt ayns cooinaghtyn jeh ny reddyn shoh, bee oo dty hirveishagh vie dy Yeesey Creest, troggit ayns goan y chredjue, as ynsagh mie, huggey t'ou er roshtyn.

If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.


Agh raaghyn mee-chrauee shenn vraane cur dy lhiattee, as gow myr reih dy gholl er dty hoshiaght ayns craueeaght.

But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.


Er son shirveish y challin cha vooar yn ymmyd t'ayn: agh ta craueeaght vondeishagh gys dy chooilley nhee, myr ta gialdyn echey jeh'n vea ta nish ayn, as jeh shen ta ry-heet.

For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.


Ta shoh raa firrinagh as feeu ard-soiagh ve jeant jeh.

This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.


Son er y choontey shen ta shin chammah laboragh, as surranse scammylt, er-yn-oyr dy vel shin treishteil ayns y Jee bio, ta ny Haualtagh da dy chooilley ghooinney, erskyn ooilley dauesyn ta credjal.

For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.


Ny reddyn shoh jean y harey as cur roue.

These things command and teach.


Ny lhig da dooinney erbee beg y hoiaghey jeh dty aegid, agh bee dty hampleyr dauesyn ta credjal, ayns goo, ayns ymmyrkey-bea, ayns graih, ayns spyrryd, ayns credjue, ayns glennid.

Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.


Derrey hig-ym, bee kiaralagh dy lhaih, dy choyrlaghey, dy ynsaghey.

Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.


Ny bee mee-rioosagh jeh'n ghioot t'aynyd, va er ny chur dhyt liorish phadeyrys, tra hie oo fo laueyn ny shirveishee casherick.

Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.


Smooinee dy dowin er ny reddyn shoh, jean oo hene dy slane y vaarail orroo; dy vod y bishaghey ayd's ayndoo ve er ny hoilshaghey da dty chooilley ghooinney.

Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.


Cur tastey dhyt hene, as da dty ynsagh; jean tannaghtyn ayndoo: son ayns jannoo shoh, nee oo chammah oo hene y hauail, as adsyn ta dy dty chlashtyn.

Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.
