Paul pryssoonagh Yeesey Creest, as Timothy nyn mraar, gys Philemon nyn mraar graihagh, as sheshey shirveishagh [ayns y sushtal,]

Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy our brother, unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer,


As gys nyn gaarjyn ennoil Apphia, as Archippus nyn sheshey-sidoor, as gys y cheshaght-chreestee ta ayns dty hie:

And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the church in thy house:


Grayse dy row hiu, as shee voish Jee nyn Ayr, as y Chiarn Yeesey Creest.

Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.


Ta mee coyrt booise da my Yee, dy kinjagh gimraa ort ayns my phadjeryn.

I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,


Lurg clashtyn ve aym jeh dty chredjue ayns y Chiarn Yeesey, as jeh dty ghraih da ooilley ny nooghyn;

Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints;


Dy vod yn ayrn t'ayd's mârin 'sy chredjue cadjin ve breeoil, gys goaill-rish dy chooilley nhee mie, ta nyn mast'eu ayns Creest Yeesey.

That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.


Son ta boggey as gerjagh mooar ain ayns dty ghraih, er-yn-oyr dy vel yeearreeyn ny nooghyn femoil er nyn ooraghey liort's, vraar.

For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.


Ga dy voddin er-y-fa shen goaill y daanys shen orrym ayns Creest, dy dty harey gys shen ta cooie dy ve jeant;

Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient,


Ny-yeih er graih ainjys [creestee] ta mee goaill myr reih dy yannoo aghin hood's, mish Paul ta my henn ghooinney, as nish myrgeddin pryssoonagh Yeesey Creest.

Yet for love's sake I rather beseech thee, being such an one as Paul the aged, and now also a prisoner of Jesus Christ.


Ta mee jannoo aghin hood ayns lieh my vac Onesimus, ta mee er gheddyn ayns y chredjue tra va mee ayns my gheulaghyn:

I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds:


Va ayns traa dy row neu-vondeishagh dhyt's, agh nish vondeishagh dhyt's as dooys:

Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me:


Eshyn ta mee er choyrt hoods reesht: gow uss rishyn er-y-fa shen myr rish my chree hene.

Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, mine own bowels:


Eshyn veign er reayll mârym, ayns yn ynnyd ayd's dy voddagh eh ve shirveishagh dou ayns geulaghyn y tushtal.

Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel:


Agh noi dt'aigney cha jinnin nhee erbee: nagh beagh dty aigney-mie myr eginit, agh dy arryltagh.

But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.


Son foddee dy daag eh oo son traa giare, dy voddagh oo eh y reayll mayrt choud as s'bio eh;

For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever;


Cha nee nish my, sharvaant, agh erskyn sharvaant, braar ennoil, dooys er-heh agh foddey smoo dhyt's, chammah ayns yn eill as ayns y Chiarn?

Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord?


My t'ou er-y-fa shen jeeaghyn orrym myr sheshey-creestee, gow rishyn myr rhym pene.

If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself.


My t'eh er n'yannoo aggair dhyt, ny my t'eh lhiastyn veg dhyt, cur shen gys y choontey aym's.

If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account;


Ta mish Paul er scrieu eh fo my laue hene, cooilleen-yms eh: gyn dy insh dhyt dy vel uss cheu-mooie jeh shoh lhiastyn dooys eer oo hene.

I Paul have written it with mine own hand, I will repay it: albeit I do not say to thee how thou owest unto me even thine own self besides.


Dy jarroo, guee-ym ort, vraar, lhig da boggey ve aym jeed ayns y Chiarn: jean mian my chree y ooraghey ayns y Chiarn.

Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord.


Ayns slane treishteil jeh dty viallys, ta mee er scrieu hood, as s'mie ta fys aym dy jean uss eer ny smoo na ta mee shirrey.

Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote unto thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say.


Agh marish shoh kiare aaght er my hon: son ta mee treishteil liorish ny padjeryn eu, trooid foayr Yee, dy jig-ym hiu reesht.

But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.


Ta dy dty vannaghey Epaphras, my cho-phryssoonagh ayns Creest Yeesey;

There salute thee Epaphras, my fellowprisoner in Christ Jesus;


Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my cho-labreeyn.

Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers.


Dy row grayse nyn Jiarn Yeesey Creest marish nyn spyrryd. Amen.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
