The Bible


Y shanstyryn ta ny mast' eu ta mee coyrlaghey, ta mee hene myrgeddin my hanstyr, as feanish jeh surranseyn Chreest, as myrgeddin parteeas jeh'n ghloyr vees er ny hoilshaghey:

The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:


Cur-jee beaghey da shioltane Yee ta ny mast' eu, goaill y currym harrystoo, cha nee myr eginit, agh dy aggindagh; cha nee er coontey cosney neareydagh, agh jeh aigney arryltagh;

Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;


Chamoo myr chiarnyn harrish eiraght Yee, agh myr sampleyryn da'n chioltane.

Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.


As tra hig yn Ard-vochilley kionfenish, yiow shiu attey dy ghloyr nagh jean fioghey ersooyl.

And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.


Myrgeddin shiuish sleih aegey, bee-jee arrymagh da'n chenndeeaght: dy jarroo bee-jee ooilley ayns biallys yn derrey yeh gys y jeh elley, as bee-jee coamrit lesh injillid aigney: son ta Jee soiaghey eh-hene noi'n vooinjer voyrnagh, as t'eh coyrt grayse dauesyn ta imlee.

Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.


Jean-jee shiu hene er-y-fa shen y injillaghey fo laue niartal Yee, dy vod eh shiu y hroggal seose ayns traa cooie;

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:


Tilgey ooilley yn chiarail eu ersyn; son t'eh kiarail er ny son eu.

Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.


Bee-jee sheelt, bee-jee er nyn arrey; er-yn-oyr dy vel y noid eu yn drogh-spyrryd, myr lion buirroogh, shooyl mygeayrt, shirrey quoi oddys eh y stroie:

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:


N'oï shass-jee dy shickyr ayns y chredjue; myr ta toiggal eu dy vel ny seaghyn cheddin er ny ymmyrkey liorish ny braaraghyn eu t'ayns y theihll.

Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.


Agh dy jean y Jee jeh dy chooilley ghrayse, ta er n'eamagh orrin gys e ghloyr dy bragh farraghtyn liorish Creest Yeesey lurg diu ve er hurranse tammylt beg, dy jean eh shiu y yannoo dy firrinagh mie, dy jean eh shiu y chummal seose, y niartaghey, as y hickyraghey.

But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.


Huggeysyn dy row gloyr as reill son dy bragh as dy bragh. Amen.

To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.


Liorish Silvanus braar firrinagh diuish (myr ta mee dy ghoaill eh) ta mee er scrieu ayns focklyn giarey, coyrlaghey as gymmyrkey feanish, dy nee shoh grayse firrinagh Yee ayn ta shiu shassoo.

By Silvanus, a faithful brother unto you, as I suppose, I have written briefly, exhorting, and testifying that this is the true grace of God wherein ye stand.


Ta'n agglish ta ec Babylon, reiht cooidjagh mêriuish, cur bea as slaynt hiu, as myrgeddin Marcus my vac.

The church that is at Babylon, elected together with you, saluteth you; and so doth Marcus my son.


Oltee-jee y cheilley lesh paag dy ghraih [creestee]. Shee dy row meriu ooilley t'ayns Creest Yeesey. Amen.

Greet ye one another with a kiss of charity. Peace be with you all that are in Christ Jesus. Amen.
