Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.


As ny reddyn t'ou er chlashtyn voym's roish ymmodee feanishyn, cur uss ayns treishteil deiney firrinagh, vees fondagh dy ynsaghey feallagh elley myrgeddin.

Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:


Er y hon ta mee gymmyrkey seaghyn myr drogh-yantagh, dy jarroo gys geulaghyn; agh cha vel goo Yee kianlt.

Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.

Te raa firrinagh. Son my ta shin er ve marroo mârish, bee mayd myrgeddin bio marish:

It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him:


My ta shin surranse, nee mayd myrgeddin reill marish my ta shin dy obbal eh, nee eshyn myrgeddin shinyn y obbal.

If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:


My ta shin neu-firrinagh [dasyn], ny-yeih t'eshyn tannaghtyn firrinagh; cha vod eh eh-hene y obbal.

If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.

And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,


Ayns meenid gynsaghey adsyn ta shassoo magh; my saillish Jee arrys y chur daue gys goaill-rish yn irriney;

In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;

And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
